Reviews for the Cyberpower Xplorer X6-9120

60% Cyberpower Xplorer X6-9120
Source: PC Mag English version
For gamers on a budget who are content with playing in medium-quality settings, the Cyberpower Xplorer X6-9120 is a decent system whose affordable price tag and great display overshadow its ho-hum design, small hard drive, and less than stellar battery life. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. Still, users willing to shell out an extra $200 would be far better served by the Editors' Choice-winning Lenovo IdeaPad Y580 which, despite its designation as a media laptop, actually exhibits better gaming chops while packing the same processor, a comparable graphics card, and a Blu-ray drive.

Source: Computer Shopper English version
In the world of gaming laptops, graphics performance is everything, which is why the very best rigs are equipped with a speedy processor and a graphics engine capable of delivering fast frame rates. The Cyberpower Xplorer X6-9120 is a bare-bones 15.6-inch notebook featuring the latest Core i7 technology, a nice display, and an affordable price for a machine with dedicated graphics, but its gaming performance comes up short.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M: Middle class graphics card of the 600M series based on the 28nm GK107 chip (Kepler architecture).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

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.  


An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

2.8 kg:

With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.

Cyberpower: CyberPower, Inc. is (as they assert theirselves) one of the nation-wide leading computer system manufacturers. As published in the Los Angeles Business Journal in 2003, they were the fastest growing private company in Los Angeles.

60%: Such a poor rating is rare. There are only a few notebooks that were rated even worse. The rating websites do not give a purchase recommendation here.
