What made you choose Clevo?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys and gals

just a quick question about your thought process

roughly 4 years ago I bought a p170em from pcs, back then I did all my research and for me, the airflow, build quality and upgradability was better than any other manufacturer, But none of my mates know about Clevos, they all have MSI and alienware.

I've got to the point where my vortex 3 is dying, and I'm considering whether to invest in spares or put it towards a new laptop. and should I choose a Clevo again?

what made you choose your clevo from the others out there?

I got 4 Clevos the last 5 years, and there are 2 things i love most about them!

1. You can unscrew them very easy, so you can clean/change almost every part fast&easy.

2. With the help of Prema you can upgrade and support even older models with better Hardware/Performance parts

I've only just recently gone Clevo but for these reasons..

1. Socketed desktop CPU.

2. More flexible warranties with Clevo resellers.

3. Better performance for money compared to other OEM's.

I'd go for one of the P7xxDM models in your case. The lack of Optimus is amazing for anybody who does a lot of gaming or tweaking, and they're currently the ONLY upgrade-able ODM on the market (for both CPU and GPU).

So yes, go with them =D.

Plus, Prema and his sBIOSes are >

Hy all,

I just came across an opportunity to get an older Clevo model for really cheap  (w170er). I am actually surprised by this unit in terms of noise, battery life, computing power...

Before this I have only owned "normal" laptops but from now on I will definitely consider saving on cash for a gaming laptop.

 I have no experience with MSI or Alienware.

I will definitely be switching from alienware to clevo, ive worked on a few of my friends and am very impressed at how easy they are to disassemble and how well built they are

Hmm for me this P651RE3 basically MSI GS60 competitor with G-sync, better cooling + Prema vBIOS

Try taking a gaming PC to a professional meeting...Clevo is one of the few that lets you get away will looking professional.

Well, Clevo is now the only acceptable option for true high performance notebook enthusiasts. Literally everything sold by competitors is crippled low-TDP BGA trash. I love beast laptops, but I would abandon them and go back to building my own desktops if the only thing left to purchase was a BGA $hitbook. I won't put up with that, so... good, bad or indifferent, a Clevo with a desktop CPU is really the only game in town at this point, and their BGA models are crappy turdbooks just like the rest of them.

Getting tired of my haswell i7 Alienware 17, plus the idea of a desktop CPU and a desktop GPU was far more appealing...with g-sync no less.

Great reasons. Thanks for posting.

 

Here's another good reason.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. But, it seems like none of them are even trying to be good any more. Their competitors just keep on cranking out BGA feces and the silly kids just keep on buying those worthless trashbooks. Really sad state the industry is in now. Hopefully, Clevo won't end up being a sell-out Intel butt-kisser like all the other clowns out there.

I chose clevo because it was the only system at the time that had 2 gfx cards. NP9380-S back in 2013.  I'm still using this system with no major problems.  Nothing in the system has failed, and I keep it clean.  Think it was 3k$ well spent.
