Eurocom has Prema mods.

Reflex notebooks are a Sager middleman for Canada.

Mythlogic is in the US but ships to and has canadian warranties.

Hi, thanks for the replys

 

Correct me if I'm wrong...

 

Clevo = Manufacturer Sager = Reseller?

Clevo = Manufacturer Sager = Reseller? 

You're almost right. Clevo is the manufacturer, but not an OEM exactly. They're an ODM. Kind of like Compal, who sells to (or sold to) Alienware. You usually don't hear about ODMs that aren't their own OEM (ASUS and MSI are their own OEM, though MSI sells "whitebooks" as an ODM which can be rebranded freely; if you ever see say... a GT72 that doesn't have the MSI branding or colour schemes etc, that'd be the situation) but Clevo sells to SO MANY around the world that it's more efficient to simply use the Clevo names. Especially since, being an ODM, most people who sell them don't say that they're a clevo.

 

Sager is technically a reseller, but it's better to think of them as a rebrander. They take the Clevo barebones and rebrand them. XMG/mySN do the same thing, but they also do it for gigabyte notebooks too, so their whole lineup isn't from Clevo. So... Sager, Mythlogic, Eurocom, XMG, Metabox, Venom Computing, Aftershock PC, scan UK, Origin PC, iBuyPower, CyberpowerPC, AVADirect, Falcon Northwest, etc are all "rebranders" as far as laptops go.

 

The reason the distinction is there is because "resellers" like XoticPC and LPC-Digital and Reflex Notebooks exist, which directly re-sell (literally) rebranded models. In this case, the ones I called all re-sell Sager. The machines come from Sager and they are simply more of a middleman. In Sager's case, it's often easier to have a reseller deal with you with regards to warranty and the like as people have generally discovered over the years. Machines from Mythlogic or Pro-Star Computing, for example, don't push nearly enough bulk to warrant a reseller, or branches in other countries.

It refers to unlocked system BIOS and video BIOS for stability and personal system control. It's always desirable to have one, unless you REALLY don't care about your system as long as it turns on and doesn't crash randomly in games. Anything beyond such basic functionality will pretty much require a Prema mod. The mods this time around are not (yet?) publicly available. They might not be for the current gen of systems.
