Walmarts brand is a joke 

 

Look at another system

It's a TongFang laptop, not made by Walmart

The gaming laptop I have right now is the Hp pavilion Gaming 15-cx0056wm.I got it for $479 but plus tax it was $512 and if I return it for $313 more I can buy the Overpowered gaming laptop 15+. 

It's a good model (GK5CN5Z/6Z), though you should rely on other vendors like Eluktronics for firmware/BIOS updates and aftersales support

If it’s such a joke then why is so many people buy it also the chassis is the same that companies like Cyberpower and many more use.

There have been a lot of quality control issues and wierd stuff like hotglueing components in. Cyberpower has a proven history of providing pcs but Walmart doesn't have this rep. Just hit up youtube for a few of the Overpowered teardowns and you will see all the evidence you need that they aren't worth it.

Most of the reviews of their desktops show cables disconnected, they don't even put the 10 cents in to paint the PSU. Makes you wonder what other things they have done to cut corners. Another thing to be weary of is the amount the dropped the price. They dropped it 475$, and they are still able to produce and sell them. You could also assume they are making a profit still, cause why would they want to lose money? The point is, go for something else.

I think you don't know how laptop manufacturing works. Most brands do not manufacture laptops, this is done by ODMs who are the 'real' manufacturer. And most of them are in China

 

Please don't call me mental, what a rude guy

Of course they don't manufacture them they design them. Example: Designed by Apple. Assembled in China. But TongFang designed walmarts PC and they TongFang are a chinese company, so nothing good can come of that... Just look at GN review on their desktop line, their component choice is based on price and price alone not price/quality.

Stop shining bad light on me....  And stop quoting me out of context. Just look at some of the reviews.

 

#1 They put a 144Hz display with a GTX 1060 or GTX1050ti... What's the point?

#2 Bad build quality. The chasis flexes and is flimsy.

But the Origin Eon 15 uses the same chassis and the display is used in the Razer blade 15. Also the Razer blade has a Gtx 1060 max q with a 144hz display.

Well that's why I don't like Razer's decision too, at least with the 144Hz display. I'd rather get 4k that can provide value outside gaming.

 About the Origin PC, well it's a tong fang too..

Yea but other people like Razer laptops and also Cyberpower pc uses Tong Fang Chassis too and people recommends Cyberpower or Clevo and many more that also use The same chassis

My fault. Didn't notice that they have a new model. The previous EON 15 is Clevo P950/P955

It's not flimsy IMO. Anyway everyone has different opinions
