NotebookReview used the Clevo M570A and concluded that “I was about to go for a Dell XPS M170, but I would have payed close to $1000 or more for the same thing. Im sure the XPS is a nice machine, but its a little too pricey for me. Additionally, since I want to be able to use my laptop at work, I can’t have a laptop that looks like a pure gaming machine, and this laptop does that job while still maintaining plenty of style.
All of the latest games can be played with ease. Battlefield 2 at highest settings and resolution? No problem.
Unfortunately, the problems with the sound and wireless, and the fact that I have to look into a USB wireless card since I only have one PCMCIA slot for the Sound Blaster, forces me to give the laptop a somewhat less than perfect rating. But the quality and value of the laptop make it well worth the purchase despite these flaws. I give it an A-.”
- Blazing fast processor and video card
- No stability issues
- Very well priced for what I am getting ($2200)
- Beautiful, good quality build and design (professional look)
- Great LCD screen with gloss coating (option to get one without)
- Lightweight for a desktop replacement
- Decent onboard sound quality
- A1 Customer support from ISTNC
- Wireless has issues
- Heavy for a laptop
- Hiss in the background with sound, and chirping noise on headphones when IRDA is enabled
- Only one PCMCIA slot – Meaning I can’t have one of those PCMCIA Sound Blasters and a PCMCIA wireless at the same time
