PC Specialist Inferno 11.6 inch Laptop review

Rating: 8.0.

If like me, you don’t like lugging around a super size 17 inch laptop then today’s review product will be interesting. PC Specialist have created a super small 11.6 inch system and they are aiming to make it one of the most powerful on the market, by incorporating the powerful Intel Core i7 3630QM – a quad core processor with hyperthreading. Yes, 8 logical cores within a tiny 11.6 inch chassis. The system may only cost £650 inc vat, but PC Specialist have managed to include a 128GB Kingston V200 SSD, 8GB of memory and Windows 8.

There are no shortage of options today if you are in the market for a new laptop, but there are very few 11.6 inch laptop systems which feature a top of the range Quad core/HT enabled Core i7 processor. Obviously some of the challenges in doing this, will be cooling and stability.

    Well this is rather daring from PC Specialist. never heard of them before, but thats a heck of a move. I know a lot of people who would love this, even with a bit of extra heat.

    Only issue I could see would be a long term fan dust clogging issue, and this machine would overheat very soon. I suppose many laptops are like that however so nothing that big a deal.

    Thats a great little system, id probably opt for a slightly lesser CPU though to keep down temps.

    I really like this too, great price. Shame they dont ship outside UK.

    @Mannacua, while they don’t personally ship outside the UK I have heard of people getting the confirmation from PCS that it is ready (and arranging for them to hold onto it) and then sending in their own couriers to pick it up and ship it out as self pickup is an option!

    So far heard great things about this and having owned a Viper III from PCS am sorely considering getting this as a travelling companion!

    Any way to adjust the fan speed on this? I have the same one and my fans dont show up on any software.
