NVousPC Mercury Laptop with Custom Paint Job – Review (Page 5 / Review Supplement & Conclusion)

posted by Doomzilla in Laptops/ Computers, Reviews Subpage |

During the process of running all these tests I kept the laptop plugged into the wall and used a Kill-A-Watt to monitor how much power it used. The laptop’s wattage usage maxed out at 57W during a run of 3DMark06 and only used 26W sitting idle. This is pretty remarkable when you consider how much performance you get out of these low power laptop components.

I would easily recommend the Mercury for anyone that needs a laptop for basic office applications, web browsing, DVD watching, and casual gaming. It’s a great mid-level machine that you can have customized in just about any possible way. This specific unit is $1,511.98 including the paint job and the shipping cost. Feel free to travel over to NVousPC now and check out the Mercury, as well as their other two models, the 15.4″ Ether and the recently announced 12.1″ Carbon.

Pros:

  • Fully customizable hardware and paint job/engraving
  • Powerful enough for multimedia and minor gaming
  • Paint job looks utterly fantastic
  • Almost 3 hour battery life playing a DVD

Cons:

  • Not for gaming enthusiasts, No dedicated graphics card
  • No HDMI or DVI video ports
