There really are some outstanding points to this desktop replacement we have with us today. The first would have to be the paint job; it's the most noticeable thing about the notebook. As someone who wears a large gold bracelet at all times, my paranoia levels of scratching the paint were through the room. The thing is, though, the quality of the paint protection on the product is second to none. It really takes no time for you to feel confident in using the notebook as you should, without worrying that the paint work is going to get scratched.
The other thing is if you're not a fan of this particular paint job, there are a number of options out there. There is no doubt going to be a paint job that you will like. Sure, it costs extra, but it really separates you from the pack. That stainless steel finished Macbook next to you is going to look extremely boring next to one of these things. The whole unit is a head turner and really does bring peoples jaw to the ground.
Then of course we have the specs of the notebook. Smooth Creations really know what they're doing when it comes to decking out a beast. Quad core CPU, 4GB of RAM, Blu-ray and SSD in RAID 0 all make this notebook stand out from the competition.
You have to wonder that if this is what Smooth Creations has done with the Core 2 line-up, we can only imagine what they're going to do when it comes to the new Core i7 line-up.
As usual, Smooth Creations really have a top notch product that anyone would be happy to have. The price is no doubt going to be hard for some people to swallow, but if you have the money and want the power, we say why not!
While the notebook represents a small group of people, it's nice to see just what exactly Smooth Creations are capable of, be it a system housed in a full tower or a notebook. If you don't want something as powerful or with such a full-on paint job, airbrushed notebooks on the same platform begin at just under $3,000. As for this one we looked at today, if you can get over the price then this is one piece of hardware that is going to bring a smile to your face for a very long time.
