    Default Clevo W540EU / W545EU / W550EU

    Hi,

    I try to gather thoughts here about a product line from clevo which has several benefits but is not really spread among resellers.

    link to specs :

    CLEVO - Products

    Benefits :

    - Appears as an ultrabook on Intel ODM list (but is not IMO)

    - has a maximum height of 2,5 cms which is quite thin for a Clevo.

    - Had mSATA support with

    - Full HD screen option

    Cons :

    - Quite heavy : 2,2 Kg with Battery & optical drive


    Anybdy owns it ? found a new reseller ?


    The pics on the Clevo Website are not that great here are some others :

    That's a very interesting model. I was researching it online but was unable to find a release date for it or how long it's been up on the clevo site. It might just be something on the way not quite released yet. Looks pretty similar to the Sager 2240 though (Clevo W240EUQ)

    We'll have them pretty soon. It'll be great to have a thin and light notebook to take around that doesn't require a huge power brick!

    Hi it's a pretty different model although you're right that on the leyboard side it seems to be similar. the W240EUQ is alike the W240AEU which is used for system76 lemu4 :

    https://www.system76.com/laptops/model/lemu4

    that gives a laptop really thick (and heavy but it's still a problem with other models)

    Here's another picture of the W540EU that show that it would be a really different case and IMO the very first Clevo that could compete with ultraportable.


    the Main problem is that it's still heavu (2,2 kg even more with the big battery)

    Some Pics right After the unboxing :

    https://plus.google.com/photos/11477...04836471032913

    I will do real Pics in few days.

    So far it's just the best CLEVO I've ever had . it reminds me the excelent S301 few years ago that was light and Nice.


    So far everything worked out of the box with Ubuntu 12.04. Even with a Celeron B830 and a classic hard drive , it's super fast.

    It's not noisy as a lot of Clevo.

    It's quite thin, not an ultrabook but just as thin as any should be !

    The screen is non glare, but I don't feel too bad about it for now ( all my clevo are glare )

    the optical drive is a 9,5 it seems , So i won't put my 12,5 mm BluRay drive for now
