AVADirect Menace (Clevo P770ZM)

  |   by Ian Debevoise

The AVADirect Menace (Clevo P770ZM) has a simple but pleasing appearance with an excellent keyboard and sound but this laptop gets its name from its inner-workings. The full power desktop-class Intel Core i7-4790K unlocked processor is the fastest processor you will find in any mobile device while the  Nvidia GTX 980M 8 GB graphics card is also above average and the fans do a great job of keeping this behemoth cool while still being quiet.
