No point. This system will overheat and shuts down. Don't bother with cyberpower. They are crap like their PCs. I prefer XPS if you are looking for gaming.

This system is a Clevo notebook. By definition, it will not overheat.

That being said, Cyberpower deserves no credit for this.

Thats all well and dandy, except that the GTX280M is actually a G92b AKA 8800GTS, 9800GTX, GTS250. Damn you nVidia!

Quote:
Some of you may remember back in February, when Eurocom announced that it would launch the world’s first Core i7 laptop
in the form of the D900F Phantom i7 workstation
. Based on Intel’s Core i7 and X58 chipset, the D900F packs 8 GB of RAM and Nvidia’s G280 GPU. All told the thing weighs 11.9 pounds and has a one hour battery life.

I'll wait for that. The fact of the matter is the GTX 280M is a rebranded 55nm 9800M GTX. And I don't care much about the weight(If it's under 25 pounds, a weight I can carry comfortably, then it's fine). Although that 8GB of RAM worries me a bit.

You can always build your own cheaper if you shop around online. What Cyber Power offers is to build you one cheaper than the big dogs Dell, HP, Sony, etc. without the pre-loaded crap on the OS.

I don't get it, why bother spending this much on a gaming laptop, when for the same price you can get a much better desktop? With such a short battery life it's not like you can be far from a power source anyways.

Why would you bother hardcore gaming on a laptop?

So you can use a mousepad to play Crysis?

Personally, I think a laptop is made for business and work on-the-go.

Maybe casual gaming.


I leave my hardcore gaming needs at home with my desktop.

The idea is not to make a laptop for those who would prefer a desktop, it is for those who enjoy games but are always on the move. On the move I'd much rather lug around a 5kg laptop than my 15kg pc, and monitor, and keyboard, and mouse.

What I love is whenever these Gaming laptops are announced/reviewed/asked about people always come on asking 'Thats stupid, you could get a desktop for $xxx less'

I guess it doesn't occur to people that not everybody has the luxury of a lifestyle where a desk-top is possible?

I live out of a suitcase most of my life and love the ability to sit in my hotel or apartment and load up a game of COD4, Company of Heroes or Far Cry 2.

The point is that you can fold up a kick ass gaming rig into something that is completely portable, fly it half way round the world, plug it in, unfold it and bang, you have a desktop.

If you are going to stoop as low as to call someone a moron, perhaps you should consider not using 'u' and 'r' as words.

Ever wonder why it's cheaper? Apparently you've never had a course in basic economics. Perhaps when you get to high school you'll learn a thing or two, maybe.


As to the point of the article, some people need mobility. It's certainly not optimal, and I don't think you will find anyone who will argue that a laptop is superior to a desktop, but as some have pointed out not everyone has that option. I know plenty of colleagues who travel 150+ days a year and cannot exactly haul around a mid-tower + monitor. For the niche market, this is a solid product.

Any of you ever have to deal with Cyberpower's customer support? It'll make you want to shoot yourself in the face. They are the reason I learned to build my own machines. 20+ machines later (personal, friends, family, business) and I haven't looked back.

Not entirely accurate.
Price the parts at the Egg and build the same parts in a system at CPPC and you will see very similar prices. Last time I tried it I had about a $30 difference for a $1400 system.
The selling factor for cyberpower is that they use quality parts that you would buy from the egg but the assemble the system for you. Kinda handy for those just getting into the homebuilt hobby. Of course they also list some crappier parts, so you have to know what you are buying. Again, the perfect scenario for someone putting together their first custom build.

As for the quality of Cyberpower, I have owned 2 of their systems and I have had 100% satisfaction from the company and the after sale support.

The harshest critics are usually the ones that cant afford it.

I can't speak for their notebooks but I bought a Cyberpower desktop 3 months ago. I was very impressed with every state of the buy, build, burn in, shipping and post sale follow through. They are very professional. The system I have is top notch.

This thing looks like a beast but as long as the battery life isn't 30 minutes, I think this is a winner. This is the same price as a Mac Book Pro. I wonder which is capable of DOING more.

this is actually a decently priced "laptop" considering the hardware installed. I would like to know why I haven't seen any models based off of this same Clevo D900F chassis that have 2 GPUs installed - from any manufacturers. Pretty as it is, and even though it does have a core i7 in a laptop, I would still go for the ALienware m17x hands down due to better aesthetics, SLI, and slightly better portability. The difference in CPU's (the only real difference) would be seldom realized since, nice as they are, Core i7 is just sick overkill for almost everything. Of course, I still have one in my desktop :)

Well I would not just use Newegg. There are other sites (tigerdirect, MemoryExpress, etc.). I guess if you were just using Newegg then it would probably be around the same. but if you shop around it can be cheaper.

Wow! You have 0% reading comprehension. I was never arguing that a person should buy a laptop over a desktop. I was arguing that building a computer from Newegg is not cheaper than buying one from Cyberpowerpc. Perhaps you should buy yourself a reading comprehension tool before you insult other peoples intelligence.

Cyberpower uses the same parts available on Newegg. So the only part of the process they could screw up on would be assembly, but seeing as they run each computer for 24 hour testing I don't think thats likely. If it did arrive DOA however, it would be covered by warranty.

A certain percentage of all computer parts arrive DOA. Therefore building a computer would not eliminate the possibility of having to return something.

It never ceases to make me laugh when I see all of those comments that say ''you could build a cheaper desktop for that price'' What are you guys? a team member of the Captain Obvious Crew?

Sometimes portability and freedom are more important to some than spending less. I would love to see you taking your kickass gaming rig with you when you are gaming in another location. I don't move around much but having the option of taking my gaming rig with me is worth it.
