AVADirect is First U.S. Builder to Carry Clevo's Mighty P570WM X79 Gaming Notebook

Maximum PC: Being a system builders means you're at the mercy of hardware partners, and sometimes that's tricky business. Remember when Intel recalled its 6-Series chipset because of a SATA controller bug? That left OEMs with their pants down. It was around that same time that AVADirect began accepting pre-orders for Clevo's P270WM notebook, which would have been the world's first X79-based gaming laptop. Well, things happened -- "complications," AVADirect says -- and Clevo scrapped the design, went back to the drawing board, and built the P570WM. After taking a mulligan, Clevo is ready to let gamers experience the first true X79 desktop replacement, and once again, AVADirect is front in line.
