    HI !

    Ii see that PB5XRF-G has stock 1 M HD webcam.
    According to the service manual (i took info from here:

    PB50RC_SM service manual (pag 47/140)
    https://repo.palkeo.com/clevo-mirror/PB5xRC_RF_RD1(-G)/)

    the models are the following:

    6-88-N15ZC-4900----->Uvc Camera Bison Fix(rgb) BNH419VXB-000 1M HD V9734 N150ZU FW0601 W/White-Led W/2d-Mic(Narrow Border with ffc)
    6-88-N15ZC-5100----->Uvc Camera Chicony Fix(rgb) CNFIH3821003920LH 1M HD V9734 N150ZU FW5404 W/White-Led W/2d-Mic(Narrow Border with ffc)

    Do you know if are there any better webcam compatible with this chassis ?

    For example:

    P950RF_sm service manual (pag 47/132)
    https://repo.palkeo.com/clevo-mirror/P9x0RC_RD_RF_RN/

    has the following camera options:

    6-88-N95TC-5120----->UVC Camera Chicony Fix CKFGF1021003924LH 2M FHD V2740 N950TC FW3601 W/White-Led W/2d-Mic
    6-88-W65DC-5100----->UVC Camera Chicony Fix CKFGF1021003920LH 2M FHD V2740 W650DC FW3601 W/White-Led W/2d-Mic
    6-88-P775C-4901------>Uvc Camera Bison FIX BN8VU6VTH-200 2M FHD V2740 P775KM FW0609 W/White-Led W/2d-Mic


    Can one of these (or maybe from other models, the important fact is it must be FHD) replace the stock 1M HD on the PB5xRF-G ?

    No one will have tried, a compact usb option will outperform any inbuilt.

    Yep, internal webcams aren't really anything special. A low end external will outperform the better internal ones.

    An external usb camera would surely be better.
    I just expected clevo to offer a 2M FHD camera option on this new pb50/51 chassis as they already did on "older chassis" like p950/p955, p751,p775,...

    It's down to a cost target and balance for the intended user. If you can get a part cheap to test then it might be worth a go.
