 Maximum PC: Hewlett-Packard Pavilion ZD7000
"Boasting NVIDIA’s state-of-the-art GeForce FX G05600, a 3.2 GHz Pentium 4 running on an 800 MHz bus, and 1GB RAM, this wide screen wonder is a gaming notebook if ever there was one. HP even opted for the 128MB Framebuffer version of the Go graphics chip which gives games added oomph. In 3DMARK2001 SE, the HP punched out a Maximum PC record of 10,672 3DMarks. This beats out the Radeon Mobility 9600 chip in the Voodoo M460 notebook by about 1,500 points."

 Cnet Hardware: Apple 12.1-inch PowerBook G4
Apple's petite PowerBook gets a boost of power and a few new features. Pound for pound, it's the best PowerBook. "Nevertheless, most users won't find the 12-inch PowerBook lacking, especially since Apple has addressed the few weaknesses in the initial version. You can now increase the memory to 512MB, 768MB, or 1.25GB. And both models use a faster graphics processor: the Nvidia GeForce FX Go 5200 with 32MB of DDR SDRAM."

The well-designed Pavilion zd7000 has as much power as a desktop and is almost as big. "The HP Pavilion zd7000, which houses an Nvidia GeForce FX 5600 128MB, put the game-oriented Alienware Area 51m to shame, beating it by about 200 points."

 Laptop Magazine: GeForce FX Go5200 Toshiba Portégé M200

"As an MCE notebook, the zd7000 delivers the goods thanks to the whopping 128MB of graphics memory to complement NVIDIA’s GeForce FX Go5600. And with a gorgeous 16:10 WXGA display at your disposal, all of our shows, pictures, and videos popped off the screen."

Alienware Area 51M Gaming Computer "Laptop...the word conjures images of cheerful girls cavorting about in "gentleman's" clubs. Or, in this case, a cute little PC. This 7.5-poiund mighty mite includes a 15.4 inch LCD Screen, four speakers, and a 60-gig hard drive on which you can store your notes on the mating habits of the dik-dik and still have plenty of room left over for Unreal. And crunch these numbers: an NVIDIA GeForceFX graphics processor and a 3.2-gigahertz Pentium CPU. This may seem more vexing than a Cantonese menu. But trust us, it's a whole lot of computer."

 Cnet: Toshiba Sattelite P25-S607
"Toshiba was the first to release a notebook with Windows XP Media Center Edition, and now the company has become the second, as well. Though the Satellite 5205-S705 is barely out the door, the company just unveiled its second 17-inch wide-screen model, the Satellite P25-S607. Designed for the dorm room as well as the living room, it updates the Satellite P25-S507 launched on July 1. Upside: The big, 1,440x900-pixel screen is a great complement to a portable entertainment system with a DVD-R/RW drive, an Nvidia GeForceFX Go5200 accelerator, and Harman Kardon speakers. With a 2.8GHz Pentium 4, 512MB of memory, a 60GB hard drive, and integrated dual-band Wi-Fi, the $2,699 Satellite P25-S607 isn’t a half-bad computer, either."

 CNET: Toshiba Satellite 5205-S705
"Dreams can come true. Toshiba takes harmonic convergence to a new level today, with its Media Center notebook. The Satellite 5205-S705 isn't just a typical desktop replacement with Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition thrown in. It is designed from the ground up for digital entertainment, with a built-in TV tuner, a 15-inch UXGA display powered by the new Nvidia GeForce FX Go 5600 with 64MB of memory, a DVD burner, Harman Kardon speakers with a separate subwoofer, and a slot for CompactFlash, Memory Stick, and SmartMedia cards."

 Business 2.0: Toshiba Satellite 5205-S705: Monster Convergence Machine
“Beyond all that heavyweight media, one of the most striking features of this notebook is its bright, 15-inch display, powered by the new Nvidia (NVDA) GeForce FX Go5600 graphics processing unit. I watched a DVD of Taxi Driver on the Satellite, and it gave the sweat on Robert De Niro's demented brow diamond-cut definition.”

 PC Magazine: Windows Media Center Goes Mobile
“Rather, all those unintegrated extras detract from what is a sleek system unit with a dazzling display and the first implementation of the nVidia GeForce Go5600 graphics processor, which makes this a desirable portable for game-playing.” Toshiba's Monster Notebook
“While most road warriors prefer a smaller machine they can more easily lug around, notebooks with bigger screens carry a certain appeal for those who like to watch movies and play games. The big screen on Toshiba's machine is supported by a Nvidia (nasdaq: NVDA - news - people ) GeForce FX5200 graphics processing unit. It also supports CD and DVD capability, including CD and DVD burning as an option."
