See all updates by genexis_x

  1. My own laptop brand tier list (Windows laptops), based on their products:

    Tier 1: Lenovo, HP

    Tier 1.5: Acer, Dell

    Tier 2: Asus, MSI

    Tier 2.5: Clevo (barebone), Quanta (barebone), Huawei/Honor & Xiaomi/Redmi (can go to tier 2 if after sales are good)

    Tier 3: Tongfang (barebone)

    Not worth mentioning: Razer, Microsoft

    Yeah I prefer to rate models instead of brands, but some may want to know as well

      It's not just the laptop model itself - to me they are still lacking in QA+QC. Also, after sales is a big weakness, no matter how good the reseller is


      Clevo should be in tier 2 but their products aren't competitive anymore

      -not even a single Ryzen 4000 mobile laptop

      -their new thin and light gaming laptop - PC50, don't have good thermals, while many thin gaming laptops nowadays can achieve decent thermals

      -plastic used feels cheap


      Some of their new products are half baked:

      -Intel 10th gen NH/NP line runs hot, unlike 9th gen, despite decent cooling solution - apparently is a BIOS issue

      -NH5xAC/AD/AF is decent, but software is buggy. There are a few issues like 1660Ti GPU runs hot (solved with BIOS update), 3950X incompatibility etc

      For Tongfang, I've made a seperate post here: https://linustechtips.com/main/profile/456522-genexis_x/?status=276097&type=status

      i heard lenovo laptop had pcb issues some time ago


      not true/relevant anymore?

      Not true at all. However I have seen Clevo and Tongfang using thin PCB for their motherboards.
