War Machine Gaming Laptop Review »


War Machine is leading the way when it comes to gaming laptops and today's 17 incher is no exception with its ATI Crossfire video cards, Intel Quad-core processor and 4 Gigs of DDR3 RAM.

Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.

What You Need to Know

  • It is just under 2" thick and weighs about 10 lbs, which is practically the same dimensions as the Alienware M17X (both pretty heavy)
  • There is a lot of wrist space, but you have to reach a little too far to get to the keyboard, and the edge of the laptop kind of digs into your wrist
  • They should have made the keyboard bigger, but at least it's backlit
  • As for the 17" display, it looks great. Full 1920 x 1200 high-def resolution, plus it has HDMI out
  • Overall, extended gaming may get a little uncomfortable
  • It has ATI CrossFire video cards and a Quadcore processor
  • In our 3DMark Vantage tests, it did the best we've seen from any gaming laptop, with a final score of about 5,700 points.
  • Keep in mind, this score is relatively low for a gaming computer, since some of the desktops we've seen have scored in the 12,000 point range for much less money
  • That being said, games still looked great; we were impressed with the hardware, although we had some crashing while playing
  • Alienware has better specs (specifically processor and hard drive) for the same price
  • We're also a little skeptical of the craftsmanship


Price

  • $2,750
