Reviews for the Digital Storm x15-8690T-8
Source: Comp Reviews Archive.org version
The Digital Storm x15 gaming laptop is a fully customizable machine that plays games quite well, thanks to the NVIDIA GTX 460M 1.5GB graphics card. The high resolution screen is very nice, and the processor speed is more than adequate with an Intel Core i5-520M dual core CPU. This system is a great value at $1,479, but upgrading to a larger hard drive and more memory is definitely worthwhile.

High-end DirectX 11 graphics card based on the GF106 chip using GDDR5 graphics memory (up to 1.5 GB).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
