Eurocom M5 Pro thoughts?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi:

I have been looking for 15.6" laptops. 

Uses: Video editing, gaming, programming

 

What do you guys think? Eurocom M5 Pro

Is this company reputable? Specifications ok?

 

Are the new Intel mobile CPUs coming out soon?

 

Any other laptops that you guys suggest? (Budget: around $1600 CAD)

 

Thanks

The M5 Pro is awesome. Based on the Clevo P650Sx series, they feature GPUs of either the 965M, 970M or 980M. I personally have the Clevo P650SG, the one with the 980M, and I simply love it. It has 3 cooling fans to keep the system cool, the keyboard has awesome tactile feedback unlike the new 12" MacBook which I still have no idea whether is it a real keyboard, 2.5kg in weight and 25mm (P650SA and P650SE) or 28.8mm (P650SG) thick. Has 2 M.2 slots with one of them being a PCIe M.2 slot for SSDs like the Samsung SM951 where you can bring the SSD to the maximum potential, and also 2 SATA slots. The only thing I really don't like about it is the brushed metal finish.

For video editing (and pretty much everything else by extension), the P5 Pro with an i7-4790K should be a better machine if it's within your budget to get it (due to the desktop CPU and better cooling)

 

The company is reputable. As exercutor5 said, the laptop is built off the Clevo P650Sx line which is the best of the thin gaming laptops out there (unless you need something under 1" thick).

 

The new intel mobile CPUs (that are relevant to you) likely won't be out for a couple months. They're not going to be worth it to wait for.

Wow! I didn't know that; so you have a pretty similar model. I was thinking of a m.2 boot drive and a HDD for mass storage.

Oh yeah, and Digital Storm and Falcon Northwest...

 

Seriously, most high end gaming laptops that aren't from:
Razer

Alienware

MSI

Gigabyte/Aorus

Lenovo

 

are almost 100% going to be a Clevo. Even if they lie and say they're not a Clevo. They're a clevo. *looks at Venom Computing trying to tell us they're not Clevos*

I think Eurocom is the cheapest for me; shipping is decent.

The case, motherboards, cooling design (ordering of heatsinks and choosing of parts for fans etc), the software, the BIOS, etc. All done by Clevo. They are an ODM (Original Design Manufacturer) and OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers) buy their barebones systems and flesh them out and resell/rebrand them,
