Mobile gamers might get a little jumpy at the edge of their sit with CLEVO’S state-of-every-art and the front in every line when in comes (perhaps) design and beastly speed and power. Clevo’s X8100 from Taiwan put a best foot forward into the gaming as well as gadgetry world.

The clamshell is claimed to be the fastest laptop in the world – well if not the finest. The objective evidence is redeemed by figuring out the lethal combinations of 3 Core i7 microprocessors, seconded by up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, followed by 1 to 2GB of nVIDIA GeForce GTX graphics module. Now the real combo gets with up to 3 spaces for SATA HD drives. Wow, that’s miles and miles of generous spaces on that something at the top of your lap.

Below is the breakdown of the latest Core i7 processor craze and the potpourri of the same power line complementing peripherals:

• 18.4” Full HD (1920x1080) TFT LED LCD
• Intel® Core™ i7 720QM / 740QM / 820QM / 840QM / 920XM / 940XM Socket G1
processors support
• NVIDIA® GTX 285M 1GB single or 2GB Dual VGA / SLI configuration
• up to 8 GB 1066/1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM Memory Supported
• Support up to 3 Hard Disk Drives
• Integrated SATA Raid 0,1 Controller
• 2 HDMI ports input / output
• 1 DVI Port, 1 VGA Port for external Monitors
• Support for Internal Mini-PCI TV-Tuner with Multi-Function Remote Control
• 5 Built-in Speakers
• 3 USB 2.0 Ports & 1 IEEE 1394a Port
• Built-in 7-in-1 Card Reader
• AIntegrated 2M High-Resolution Digital Video Camera
• Full Sized Keyboard with Numeric Keypad
• High Definition Audio interface with 3D stereo enhanced sound system

That’s a daredevil of a ride onboard this platform! The dissection from within gives us a titillating technical chasm. Nonetheless, we haven’t seen yet the skin and the cover – of course from without.

And guess what? It’s burning!

A huge 18.4 LCD display treated a VIP of 1080p high definition screen pride for maximum graphic trans and nirvana. The left side of the machine is furnished with eight programmable gaming slots. All the way to the top are majestic arrays of touch sensitive hot (ok I say hot), keys for quick access to some other applications such as WLAN, volume control, Bluetooth and web applications.

The mighty form factor includes more: The touchpad supports the gestures and scrolling mechanism. The 5.1 speaker system brings you a superb 3-dimensional auditory laud with its built-in subwoofer. The typical S/PDIF audio complementary are of course on the line.

Now here’s another loop from this superb high hitting machine; besides the connectivity of the USB 2.0 ports, IEEE 1394a and an eSATA port, HDMI-out and a 7-in-1 card reader and few others, a TV tuner is a palpable option in case you can’t get even with a bot on Counter Strike Source – turn on the TV and puff you’re a game underdog turned couch potato slab.

If the said configurations inside-out rocks your senses then the figures that comes dangling to it will, perhaps scare the hell out of your pocket.

The basic set-up and default knocks up to US$2000 but of course the extreme complete and monster customization rips you up to more or triple the amount. Well, they said, sometimes it pays to be entertained. Why not give it your fat check a nice shot!

Gadget industry is like sliding a race car on the track. You won’t expect to be racing alone or at least monopolize the oval of the race. You’ve got to have adversaries and competitors right behind you, beside you or even getting ahead of you fast.

Clevo can never be too sure of how low will they hold the limelight for that “fastest gaming thing.” MSI drops the a notice to the gadget world that they’re pregnant with the same baby naming it GT660 gaming laptop now with USB 3.0 ports on board its carcasses and a 12GB RAM.

Are they (MSI) saying it’s cool enough?! Duh, ASUS is on queue heralding to the top of their lungs their i7 powered furnished gaming machine later to be born. And so with CES, DELL’s Alienware and perhaps others to trying to catch up with the race!

For all tech buff – gear up and prepare your pinky for a fun click click ride!



  1. is this for sale?.. how much?

  2. For the Philippines, I guess this is not yet formally on the shelves of the market. I hope this is for sale now. This is a superbly high-end laptop piece, especially the price tag! I guess, only a few has this unit or even on the sale.
