Top Honors — Saluting Outstanding CAD Products (Cadalyst Labs Review)


@Xi Computer • Xi PowerGo 2Duo XT Mobile Workstation • www.xicomputer.com

August 2007. @Xi Computer has a reputation for building speedy workstations that are among the fastest CAD and DCC systems to come through Cadalyst Labs, so it was no surprise that the Xi PowerGo 2Duo XT laptop was among the top in the class.


The Xi PowerGo 2Duo XT has a wide-aspect-ratio 17" screen with a crisp, bright display.

The Xi PowerGo 2Duo XT laptop is a mobile workstation for those with decidedly large laps, because it measures 15.6" x 11.5" x 2.3" (H x W x D) and weighs 8.9 lbs with the lithium ion battery installed. The unit Cadalyst received for review was based on a full-blown, dual-core processor — the Intel Core 2 Duo E6700 — running at 2.66 GHz, rather than a chip specifically intended for mobile systems.

The system was very attractive and well designed, finished in high gloss (Piano) black and matte black, and featured a wide-aspect-ratio 17" screen with a native resolution of 1,680 x 1,050. The display panel provided excellent quality and was very crisp and bright. In this case, the display was driven by an NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX graphics card with 512 MB of memory installed.
