Good graphics performance ; Pretty and comfortable keyboard ; Light (ish)

Low WorldBench score ; Display has issues with dark scenes ; Crappy touchpad

Digital Storm’s x17 is a good gaming machine that’s lighter than most desktop replacements—but it delivers less performance. If you can plump up your budget by $200, you can grab something like an Alienware M17x R4, which costs $1974.

Digital Storm x17 review: Great performance in an ugly body


It's not the prettiest laptop out there, but the Digital Storm x17 is ahead of the competition at providing maximum power at a minimum (but still significant) price.

The Digital Storm x17 is highly configurable, and the configuration we reviewed is an excellent value for the set of components, thanks to an included three-year warranty

The dated, generic body is the same one many other boutique gaming laptops have, and it doesn't make this feel like a premium product. AMD's graphics switching is still wonky
