Engadget Review

The Clevo-based Veloce is a powerful, affordable gaming portable, but weak speakers, a bleeding backlight and short battery life keep it from being a home run.

Despite its triumphs in performance, the Veloce's design flaws reduce it to what is ultimately a very average gaming laptop. It's built from excellent components, but it's weighed down by a host of nagging issues.

Computer Shopper
The Digital Storm Veloce is a $1,596 gaming laptop that squeezes considerable Core i7 and GeForce power behind a 13.3-inch, full HD display. It's more spunky than suave compared to the thinner, lighter Razer Blade, but a solid solution for portable play.

The Digital Storm Veloce packs a lot of punch, and promises gaming performance on the go, but it falls a bit short in terms of battery life.

All that said, real-world performance is quite good — every game we played was smooth and hiccup-free. But if you’re looking for bleeding edge, you just won’t find it here.
