iBuyPower Valkyrie CZ-17


The iBuypower Valkyrie CZ-17 is a good gaming laptop, and a better multimedia rig.

Quad-core i7 processor. Good 3D performance. Excellent multimedia performance. HDMI and VGA. Killer branded Ethernet. Internal upgrade space for memory and second hard drive.

Ultra-short battery life. Can't quite play smoothly at 1080p at high quality. Negligible Turbo and cooling settings. Start key on right side of keyboard. Busy keyboard layout. Could use an SSD at this price point. No touch screen. No 5GHz Wi-Fi....

iBuyPower Valkyrie CZ-17 Review


One of the best side-effects to the focus that manufacturers have placed upon energy efficiency and cool running hardware, is that modern laptops have become extraordinarily powerful when compared to their earlier brethren.
