Digital Storm x17
The Digital Storm x17 isn't the prettiest machine on the block, but this $1,999 configuration performs great and is definitely less expensive than comparable builds from other boutique PC makers.
- Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
CNET Editors' Rating
The good: 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 bad: 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.
The bottom line: 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.
