Falcon Northwest TLX Review

TLX is the most powerful 15″ laptop in the world. When you need serious portable power, an ordinary laptop won’t do. The TLX is the ideal balance of power and portability. It combines the world’s fastest Core i7 mobile CPUs and VR-Ready NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 or 1060 GPUs with a gorgeous 15.6″ IPS display featuring NVIDIA G-SYNC for a liquid-smooth framerate.


Imagine taking one of the fastest systems in the world with you – anywhere. Start by imagining wickedly fast graphics – as fast as the desktop equivalent graphics card. Powerful enough to run even demanding apps like gaming & VR. That’s the new NVIDIA GeForce™ GTX 1070 GPU inside the TLX. Then imagine the fastest mobile CPU in the world: the Intel 7th Generation Core™ i7. Add in up to 64GB of the latest DDR4 memory. Add in three storage drives & PCI Express capability. Now imagine it all in a 5.8-pound package with a brilliant 15.6″ IPS display featuring NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology. Finally, it’s custom painted in any color you can dream up. Can you imagine that? That’s TLX.

Falcon Northwest TLX

Only 1.2″ thick

The TLX’s frame packs a lot of power into a very small footprint, and it’s only 5.8 pounds loaded. It’s 1.2″ thick body fits well in your hand – not too thin to grip in your palm like a tablet, and not too thick or heavy. It’s easy to grip the TLX’s spine “one-handed”.

Unlike many notebooks, the TLX squeezes a full keyboard with full numeric keypad into its 15″ width. There’s plenty of palm-rest space, and the trackpad is offset to center on the main keyboard. The trackpad also features as integrated fingerprint scanner for biometric security (optional) between the trackpad buttons.
