iBuyerPower Armanda Touch MT20X Review

The Armanda MT20X laptop comes comes with Windows  touch interface, complete with a facility IBuyPower is calling “Magic” to facilitate standard DirectX gaming, as well as use touchscreen to its advantage. This is new ground for a company that prides itself as a supreme supplier of boutique gaming personal computers.

The machine is powered by a potent intel core i7-720QM processor with a speed of 1600 MHz. But the CPU is not matched by a rather anemic HD 5650 GPU from ATI Mobile Radeon that does not produce acceptable gaming results even with a scaled down resolution of 1680 by 1050 pixels, the game rates do not improve. It is advisable to lower the resolutions and reduce the GPU settings when playing powerful games. The machines has a total installed capacity of 4 GB DDR3 memory with a speed of 1333 MHz. It comes with a 500 GB hard drive that speeds at 7200 RPM. The storage facilities are further boosted by an SD Card, a Multimedia Card, a Memory Stick and a Memory Stick PRO.

The networking connections are provided by 1o/100/1000 mps ethernet and the wireless ethernet 540 mps IEEE 802.11n Wi -Fi. It uses Microsoft Windows 7  Home Premium Edition operating system. The score of 104 on the WorldBench 6 is not flattering, when you put the performance of other computers in this league. The MT20X packs a rather thin catalogue of ports, posting three USB ports, ethernet -RJ45, audio -headphone in/out jacks and a single eSATA  combo port . It also comes ensuite HDMI and VGA video interface connections and bluetooth. Also part of the deal is a stereo speaker, bundled with in -built microphones and webcam.

The machine weighs a minimum weight of 6 pounds 3 ounces which gets to 7 pounds 4 ounces when the machine is fully stuffed with accessories. It covers a length of 14.9 inches, a depth of 10 inches and a height of 1.5 inches. The screen and audio quality is quite commendable. The speaker produces good imaging, even though a little bit limited.

The MT20X laptop portrays  an average demeanor, but it comes with a pretty nice display that gives out briliant  and well saturated colors, added to its useful Windows 7 touch interface. The decision to allow for touch gaming experience was definately a brave one. But that was at the cost of an organic experience. The price tag of $1300 seems a bit pricey if you put its average return into the equation, even with a multitouch. The machine also suffers for its below -per graphics that seriously undermine its games rate return.It leaves you with a choice of either playing low class games or that of reducing the resolution. Being asked to make a choice of foregoing quality is an fair considering your investment.
