AVADirect should include a bumper sticker with its Clevo P180HM notebook that says, "My desktop replacement beat up your Ultrabook and defiled your MacBook Air." Don't get transfixed on the notion that someone would be silly enough to own both of those ultraslim systems rather than choose one over the other. The point we're trying to make is that the P180HM is big, it's mean, and it makes a complete mockery of the mobile form factor. And you know what? We're totally cool with that. Let's talk a moment about portability versus mobility. These aren't one in the same, and if that has you scratching... Read more...
The X7200 notebook from AVADirect already boasts some incredible features, including support for six-core Intel chips, dual ATI/NVIDIA GPUs, and up to three SATA drives, but now you can opt for up to 24GB of memory, too. In order to take advantage of all 24GB of RAM, users will need Windows Professional or Ultimate, as Windows Home Premium only supports 16GB. The DDR3-1333MHz memory is a Crucial kit (3 x 8GB), and you’ll pay dearly for it; if you add that option in the online configurator, it’ll add a whopping $1,035.92 to the cost of your notebook. To put it in perspective, the next... Read more...
First there was the novel Shoeless Joe and then came the movie adaptation Field of Dreams. In each one, the protagonist hears a voice whispering, "If you build it, he will come." In this case, "he" refers to Shoeless Joe Jackson, a baseball player idolized by the main character's father. AMD must have taken some inspiration from that story, because the chip maker went out and built what it claims is the world's fastest mobile GPU, and as expected, boutique system vendors have come calling. That includes AVADirect, who tells us they've begun offering the 6990M as a configuration option in their... Read more...
Find yourself enamored by the prospect of having a CPU and GPU integrated into the same slice of silicon? You have options, friend, one of those being AMD's newfangled Fusion-powered Accelerated Processing Units. These APUs require a new socket -- FM1 -- which won't be a big deal if you're starting from scratch anyway. For those of you not planning to roll your own rig, system builder AVADirect is now offering systems with AMD's Llano A-Series APUs underneath the hood. AVADirect allows you to get your Fusion frenzy on starting at just over $450. That's not a big investment by any stretch, and in... Read more...
And just like that, another company is assuring customers that future machines are 100% cleared to be perfectly a-okay. Intel's Sandy Bridge snafu earlier this year really put vendors in a pinch; they didn't want to stop selling systems, but they also didn't want a ton of defective units going to unhappy customers. But now that the revised model is out of the pipeline, AVADirect is proudly announcing that their new desktops are utilizing the new Sandy Bridge hardware. The new rigs will use the B3 Cougar Point chipsets that correct the SATA 6Gb/s data bandwidth flaw from degrading over time, and... Read more...

There are two main types of road warriors in this world. First, there are the ones who value portability over all else. These users are more concerned with battery life and ease of transportation than they are with raw performance, and it's because of them that netbooks -- the very epitome of portability -- have become such a popular market segment. At the other end of the spectrum sit the users who crave as much performance as they can get, and they're willing to trade battery life and lightweight designs to get it. At the extreme end, we call these mobile PCs 'desktop replacements,' which is... Read more...
