Pros

  • Multitouch interface and Magic tool
  • Good color in games and multimedia content

Cons

  • Touch interface is more novel than useful
  • Performance limited in modern games

At A Glance

The iBuyPower Armada MT20X puts a slick Windows 7 multitouch screen on top of a fairly average laptop. Though the Magic utility permits a better touch-based gaming experience, it still feels bolted on.
