AVADirect X8100 Core i7 Gaming Notebook Review

If you are looking for a gaming machine, the AVADirect Clevo X8100 is a serious rig for the gamer with coin to burn. You can find cheaper notebooks out there, but cheap and fast aren’t typically uttered in the same sentence. The AVADirect Clevo X8100 blitzed our benchmarks with the top score, or very near the top, in all but battery life. We can forgive the battery life; this is not a machine you buy expecting to work away from the outlet all day.
