Very solid performance and build for your dollar.
I received this PC last week and I'll give my opinion thus far. Customer service was above reproach; I called and they were knowledgable and friendly and local (from a global perspective.) I couldn't recommend the company any more positively. I've had a clevo platform laptop before and I loved it and this continues the trend. This is based off the 650se, a move to make them slimmer while retaining some respectable power. They succeeded on both fronts. This is remarkably thinner and lighter than my 2013 MSi GX60, and with the white backlit keys and understated finishes it looks sleek and very business-like. The hinges have a little flex but no worrisome wobble, and the screen is as sturdy as you would expect it to be in a thin(ner) form laptop. It has flex if you force it, but why would you? The only downside is that the motherboard and GPU are soldered. There's no room for any other option in this thin platform, so don't plan on upgrading them. I ordered mine with the FHD screen, 16gb of ram and a 256gb SSD. I'll add another hard drive later, but that's not relevant. I wanted enough hdd space to get up and running with a few games while I shop for a good deal on a much larger SSD. There's plenty of expansion room with 2x M2 slots and another 7mm slot. There are also 4x total slots for ram, 2 under the keyboard and 2 under the access panel. To my understanding the two under the keyboard will both be utilized with your RAM selection, ie 8gb = 2x 4gb sticks, because who wants to pull their keyboard? Speaking of keybaords, this one has a good feel for typing, a mellow backlight, and the wasd keys have red arrows on them. No complaints. I also liked the physical seperation of the left and right trackpad keys, it gives you a satisfying click. I use a wired external mouse anyways, but when I take it with me for work I like to have a usable trackpad. Windows 8 gestures didn't always register. Speakers sound good for what they are, they seemed balanced at higher volumes. The inclusion of the soundblaster software was a nice touch and gives the audio a bit more substance than it may have with hardware alone. Actual performance is easier to review online. The GTX970 is well regarded with a huge increase over the 8xx series in every way, up to 50% in some cases. The i74720HQ multi-tasks with ease and didn't leave me wishing I had more. I run on a stock clock until I feel the need to do otherwise and I think I'll be fine for quite some time here. Games I've played on Ultra with no hiccups: Heart of the swarm, witcher 2, skyrim, WoW, etc. I don't play a lot of the newer games that are more demanding, but reviews on the video card at a 1080p resolution seem to indicate that there should be no problem playing anything at all. I am enamored with this little piece of hardware.
