    Posted: 13 Jun 2012 at 6:58pm
Budget:
[No more than $1,500]

Expectations:
[Responsive, quick boots, smooth game play at high settings, sturdy design, no overheating of components, bios with some actual configurable settings (ie: cpu and memory overclocking, memory timings).]

Usage:
[For the most part, It will be used for gaming. Games run from Minecraft, Skyrim, BF3, etc. (especially Planetside 2 when it is released) ]

Special Needs:
[It needs to be portable yet powerful, as it will be replacing both my ancient laptop and my aging desktop]

I believe this config should be able to meet the gaming performance I am after, but I cant seem to find any information on the weight or thermal output of this particular model. I know this information is rather difficult to obtain for built to order system, but I could do with some ballpark figures.

Some other important info which is missing are the battery specs. In fact, I haven't noticed any mentioning of a battery on the config page.

PS: one final thing, as I was looking for a Message Icon to use for this topic, I couldn't help but noticing that the example icons displayed had little to do with the emotion selected. I chose Wink and it showed a crying animation, so lets see what happens =)

Edit: LOL, might want to fix that emoticon issue

looks good. Id consider a hybrid hard drive, that way you get a lot more space (15is had one drive bay I believe) or an external at least, since the games will start to take up a lot of space. Other then that, looks good.

Thank you for your interest in a Digital Storm gaming laptop!
 
Here's the specs on the weight/size:
6.83 LBs with Battery Pack
14.80" (w) x 10.08" (d) x 1.38"~1.69" (h)

Battery life is about 3-4 hours, and during gaming, about 2 hours (this will vary).
 
I'll let the team know about the message icons on the forums. Big%20Smile

Redkulaid is right. That 120GB SSD already has almost 50GB of stuff on it, and you will probably run out of space quickly, unless you either add a multimedia hard drive or switch the primary.

i7-3820 (2.7GHz/3.7GHz)

I am a little skeptical of getting a hybrid hdd since I've heard that they don't last as long because of the constant spinning up and down. I most likely will grab a TB portable drive to take with me. Its interesting to see a 670m with 1.5GB vram instead of the 3GB in similarly priced models.

Yeah I was curious about that to, why do the DS laptops have the 670M with 1.5GB memory instead of 3?

Clevo offers the GTX 670M GPU with 1.5GB for that model.
