D901C Phantom-x

 

When it comes to the desktop replacement category of laptop PCs, users want the power and utility of a full-fledged computing rig without the hassle of being chained to a particular desk. Eurocom obliges with the D901C Phantom-X, a boxy behemoth that...

Packs a substantial amount of hardware A surprisingly quiet package

Woefully cramped keyboard Pricey, no-frills chassis

The Phantom-X lacks dedicated media shortcuts, forcing users to rely on function-button combinations. Another issue is questionable key placement, which can wreak havoc on the unwary. Take the Sleep hotkey, which lies sandwiched between hotkeys for...

Packs a substantial amount of hardware ; A surprisingly quiet package

Woefully cramped keyboard ; Pricey, no-frills chassis

The Phantom-X packs plenty of power and versatility, but suffers from a lackluster layout and design.

Eurocom D900C Phantom-X Review

 

Thick, heavy unit with a quad-core processor runs scorchingly fast, remarkably quiet, and cool--but can you afford it?

Blazing desktop-like performance ; Very expandable

Extremely expensive ; Terrible battery life

You could always hook up a first-rate external monitor via the notebook's VGA, DVI, or S-Video ports, but for $5158, you could buy two or three laptops with nice built-in displays for the price of one D900C Phantom-X. They won't have the Phantom's...

Eurocom D900C Phantom

 

The Eurocom D900C Phantom ($5,000 direct) takes the term "desktop replacement" further than most laptops. It houses a desktop processor, the Intel Core 2 Duo X6800 Extreme Edition, and dual nVidia GeForce Go 7950GTX graphics boards arranged in SLI...

Extreme Edition desktop processor. nVidia SLI graphics. 1,920-by-1,200 screen resolution. Excellent performance numbers

Features do not reflect the price. Bank-account-crippling price tag. Ho-hum design. Beastly weight. Loud fans

A desktop processor and SLI graphics makes the Eurocom D900C Phantom gaming laptop a beast. Unfortunately, the weight and price are just as beastly.

Eurocom D900C Phantom-X Laptop

 

With its wide breadth of high-end component options, the Eurocom D900C Phantom-X is a tantalizing choice for gamers and graphics professionals. Our uber-pricey review unit didn't offer as much gaming muscle as we'd hoped, but it's still a respectable...

Lots of high-end configuration options, including quad-core CPUs and SLI graphics;record-breaking multimedia performance; nice display

Expensive; bulky case; no media-control buttons or HDMI port; OS costs extra; ho-hum gaming performance

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Eurocom DC900C Phantom X

 

Desktop replacements are an acquired taste to say the very least. Pro-gamers may love their balance of power and mobility, but for most of us they present something of a quandary.

SLI in a desktop replacement, Unbeatable gaming power

Big, ugly and heavy, No DirectX 10 support

Phantom offers unmatched graphics performance for gamers and multimedia users.

Expert review by:

Eurocom D900C Phantom

 

Given the Phantom's spec list it comes as no surpirise that this is the fastest laptop we've ever benchmarked. The combination of a 2.66GHz Core 2 Quad desktop processor with a wide FSB and super fast DDR2 RAM, rockets it through productivity benchmarks.

Powerful spec, Excellent performance

Bland styling, Sub-1hr battery life

Its weight and battery life rule out portability, but the spec and performance are sensational for a notebook
