Haier 7G2 14-inch Sandybridge Notebook Hands-on

Haier 7G2 Sandybridge Gaming Notebook with a 3DMark06 score of 11,000

| Laptops News | Posted: Apr 14, 2011 3:13 pm

Haier 7G2 was on display at IDF Beijing 2011 showing off its Core i7 Sandybridge processor.

 

 

This 14-inch metallic beauty has metal wire drawing on the palm rest and an ATI HD 6730 which gives it a 3DMark06 score of 11,000. If you're wondering if you should be impressed, well, you should, the current industry average for an equivalent desktop replacement is around 9,000. The 7G2 comes in both Core i3 and i5 options with a 350 and 500GB hard drive options with 2GB/4GB RAM varieties.

 

My initial impressions of this notebook aren't great, the keyboard has a great deal of flex (I was kind in the above video since the booth staff beamed so proudly over his machine) and the track pad is small for a 14 inch device. The woes of the device don't end there, the mouse buttons offer poor feed back and there are a lack of USB ports as I was only able to count two on the entire system.

The 3DMark06 score got out attention, but the keyboard has us hesitant on wanting to even try to get our hands on for a review!
