Digital Storm Krypton

 

That's because of an odd quirk in the PC industry, where smaller, boutique companies take off-the-shelf desktop cases and laptop chassis, fill them with high-end components, and tune, test, and sometimes overclock them. You end up with a custom-made...

The Digital Storm Krypton offers the latest Intel and Nvidia components, and excellent benchmark performance, for a bit less than other gaming PC brands.

You don't get the same level of hand-holding and personalized tech support as from some other gaming boutiques. The generic off-the-shelf body is ugly, no matter the price. No touch or higher-res screen options.

The bulky, dated body of the Digital Storm Krypton doesn't feel particularly high-end, but it's great at running games at high detail settings, and can be configured to provide excellent bang for your buck.

This relatively affordable 17-inch gaming portable will rock your virtual worlds.

Terrific price for a high-end portable gamer ; Blazes through games and work, too ; Very good audio subsystem ; Easy DIY upgrades

Big and heavy; could be sturdier ; Slow tech support ; Restrictive return policy

Digital Storm’s 17-inch gaming portable is big, heavy, and no-frills; but it’ll rock your virtual worlds at a great price.

Digital Storm Krypton

 

The Digital Storm Krypton is a midrange gaming laptop that leverages the latest Nvidia and Intel hardware to deliver top-notch performance.

FireWire 800 port protrudes slightly. Generic design with plastic construction.

Conclusion With its potent processing and graphics performance, the Digital Storm Krypton offers a lot for its midrange price, even competing against high-end systems. While paying more will get you things like improved design and construction, or a...

Review: Digital Storm Krypton

 

The Krypton from Digital Storm is a solid—if largely nondescript—choice for a high-test gaming laptop.

Seems expensive, but it’s actually a decent deal in the highest strata of gaming laptops. Great performance, with minimal trouble along the way

Not quite on the bleeding edge, but hey, you can always upgrade. One bad drop feels like it will demolish this thing

Digital Storm Krypton

 

The Digital Storm Krypton gaming laptop offers very strong graphics performance and a customizable backlit keyboard.

Strong graphics and performance; Runs cool when gaming; Comfortable keyboard; Fast boot and transfer speeds

Below-average battery life; Shallow viewing angles; Weak speakers

It may not have ice breath or heat vision, but the Digital Storm Krypton still has some formidable powers. For $2,251, gamers get a laptop that can handle the rigors of a 64-man death match in "Call of Duty" without breaking a sweat. However, we expect...
