    Xzotic Notebook

    Post by sicran on 22/3/2011, 5:40 am

    XoticPC offers gaming notebook buyers an alternative to the
    boring and heavy Clevo-based units sold by most of its competitors.
    Asus’ hefty (but not grotesquely-so) G73JW is the starting point for the
    custom build XoticPC sent over for our evaluation.

    Limited portability is one of the
    biggest weaknesses attributed to modern gaming notebooks, with
    comparisons to professional bowling balls typically favoring the more
    sports-oriented device. High-performance business notebooks that can’t
    game at all weigh half as much, and most models that attempt to fill the
    void have small screens.

    The problem, of course, is that most “big” gaming notebooks are
    designed with the flexibility to host multi-GPU configurations and even
    desktop processors. Customers not interested in such opulent
    customizations typically look to off-the-shelf solutions from ASUS
    and MSI to fulfill their basic gaming needs. XoticPC asks the question:
    “why not customize one of those?” And so the company did.



    The same processor interface that allows Asus’ G73JW to host a
    low-cost Core i7-740QM is used by XoticPC to incorporate the much more
    power user-friendly Core i7-940XM Extreme Edition, while two memory
    slots left empty in the base model get filled by XoticPC to expand total
    memory capacity to 16 GB. An 80 GB Intel X25-M SSD, custom-overclocked
    graphics module, and custom lighting round out a bill that roughly
    doubles the G73JW’s original price tag, while maximizing its performance
    potential.

    This configuration’s processor upgrade cost nearly as much as a
    bare CPU, though we must admit that Asus’ design makes the process
    something most users wouldn’t want to attempt themselves. Enthusiasts
    looking for the same zing with less bling can save a few hundred dollars
    by using Asus’ stock lighting. This particular build was simply
    designed to show off most of what XoticPC has to offer. Let’s take a
    closer look.
