Reviews for the Cyberpower Fangbook EVO HX7-200
Source: PC World Archive.org version
The FangBook Evo HX7-200 is one of the first Haswell notebooks out of the gate, so it's too early to know if CyberPower’s offering will be the best of the bunch. If you're wondering whether Intel's fourth-generation Core processors are worth the investment, the answer is an emphatic yes. Knowing whether this particular machine is worth $1,600 is a much tougher question, but it is a solid value.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
