Digital Storm Triton (Clevo P650SE)

  |   by Ian Debevoise

The Digital Storm Triton presents itself as a gaming laptop for travelers and it does a good job of meeting those promises but also lacks in some key areas. It has a thin body and is light for a 15-inch computer, while also packing an excellent Nvidia Geforce GTX 970M 3GB graphics card, Samsung 840 EVO SSD for fast loading and great battery life. However the thin body bends without much pressure and the display and speakers are both  below average.
