Xtreme 917V quad-core laptop reviewed

Filed under:

While there's only a select few that would even consider a laptop that weighs nearly twelve pounds and costs updwards of $5,000, those that fit that description now have a bit more information to inform their purchase, with the folks at ComputerShopper offering up their take on XtremeNotebooks' Xtreme 917V laptop. If this one looks a bit familiar (paint job aside), it's because you've likely seen it under any number of other brands, but ComputerShopper doesn't look to have held that against it. Of course, they were most impressed with the laptop's high-end quad-core processors and SLI graphics, and with the array of customizable design options available. They quite didn't find the laptop's performance impressive enough to justify the $5,000+ price tag, however and they were a bit disappointed by some rather curious omissions like media control buttons or an HDMI port. Still, they do apparently think some deep-pocketed customers will find the laptop to their liking, deeming it worthy of a decent 7.2 out of 10 rating.
