iBUYPOWER Valkyrie CZ-17 Gaming Laptop Review

ThinkComputers
24 September 2012
  • Summary: Final Thoughts Gaming laptops, there really are not that many to choose from, but if you are going to make a gaming laptop there are 2 main things that you are going to need if you want gamers to take your product seriously.  First off is the hardware, you are going to need to pack your laptop with hardware that is going to play the latest games.  Secondly the laptop needs to be flashy, backlit keys and lights are a must!
  • Pros: 17.3inch 1920 x 1080 matte screen, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M 4GB graphics, Backlit keyboard and other accent lights, Comfortable keyboard, Plenty of expansion (USB, eSATA & extra hard drive bay)
  • Cons: Trackpad not that responsive at all

iBuyPower Valkyrie CZ-17 Notebook Review: MSI and iBuyPower Tangle With Alienware

AnandTech

  • Conclusion: iBuyPower is a company that you need to be paying attention to. They're slowly but steadily growing from being a boutique player into a mainstream player, and the Valkyrie CZ-17 is proof enough of that. It's true that at its core, the CZ-17 is a slightly modified MSI chassis, but keep in mind that way back when the Mobile Athlon 64 was launched, eMachines/Gateway was doing roughly the same thing by taking notebooks built by Arima and rebranding them.

  • Excerpt: One of the best side-effects to the focus that manufacturers have placed upon energy efficiency and cool running hardware, is that modern laptops have become extraordinarily powerful when compared to their earlier brethren.
