Clevo X8100 18.4inch
Member Name: ninja1234
Advantages: V-Good Mobile Gaming, Decent Quality Screen
Disadvantages: Expensive! (All gaming laptops are!)
I purchased a laptop with the following spec from pcspecialist:
Clevo X8100 Chassis (18.4inch Screen)
Intel 920xm i7 (2 Ghz Quad Core)
2 x 1GB AMD 5870 graphic Cards
160 GB SSD Drive
500 GB Sata HD
I am quite impressed so far with this laptop, the reason i bought it was for gaming and playing blu ray movies, whilst also being mobile. I do a fair bit of travelling and this laptop has not let me down as of yet, and serves its purpose well. One of the most interesting things about this laptop is that it features a HDMI In port, allowing you to hook up for example your xbox and play it on your laptop screen!
I did initially have problems using the graphic cards in crossfire, however after a short call to their tech support, problem was solved in 5 mins, i think that their customer service and tech support is very good. There are many features with this laptop that are very cool, for example the LED lightshow, and the LED touch sensitive controls on the case allowing you to do many useful things such as change the volume or turn your wireless on and off, very handy.
Overall this laptop does exactly what i want it to, and i am very happy with it. I would recommend PCSpecialist to anyone wanting a custom laptop or Comp for sure. The only bad thing i can mention really was what seemed like a rather long build time, however from what i understand there were supply problems with the X8100 Chassis, so really it was not something PCSpecialist had any control over (understandably the reason it is not sold on their website now).
I think i forgot to mention this laptop is awesome!
Summary: Its an Awesome Laptop :D
