    Hi, first thread here and don't know if i'm posting in the right section so admins please move this to the proper section if this is wrong.

    So I bought a laptop in Sweden from "Webhallen", they call it "Webhallen Config L17-0209 / 17.3" / FHD / 120Hz / i7-7700HQ / 16GB / 256GB SSD / GTX1070 8GB / G-Sync". The price was 19990 SEK or around 2500 dollar. That is around 500 dollar cheaper then the branded models with the same specs. Link to the computer:
    https://beta.webhallen.com/se/produ...Hz-i7-7700HQ-16GB-256GB-SSD-GTX1070-8GB-G-Syn

    So i started to look on the web to find the manufacturer if i someday need replacement component or just want to read reviews about it. So far i think its a Clevo computer, the chassi is the same as the MSI GT72VR. Specs:

    Intel Core i7 7:e gen. 7700HQ / 3,8 GHz
    RAM 16 GB ( 2 x 8 GB ) DDR4 2133Mhz
    1x256GB Crucial Samsung PM961 m.2 PCIe 3.0x4 SATA SSD (2800MB/s read / 1100MB/s write)
    17,3", 1920 x 1080 FHD 120Hz, TN 2017 Gen
    Two Dynaudio-speakers, subwoofer

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 - 8 GB GDDR5 SDRAM
    Intel® HD Graphics 630
    Supports NVIDIA® Optimus™ Technology
    NVIDIA G-Sync

    Bluetooth 4.0, 802.11ac
    Intel® Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260 Plus Bluetooth
    Gigabit Ethernet

    HDMI (4K 60Hz)
    6 x USB 3.0
    1 x USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type C
    1 x Mini Display Port 1.2

    Adding some pictures for easier identification.

    You could get the gt72vr for $1300 back in march with the 6700hq and a worse sd. Amazing how much they increased the price just for the 7700hq which is barely a performance upgrade from the 6700hq.

    That's not a Clevo chassis but one from MSI.

    Certainly does look like a barebones GT72VR, minus the gold plated audio ports. That's no Clevo chassis.

    Aha I was just asuming it was a Clevo since "Webhallen" did sell their computers earlier. Hmmm so maby its just a barebone MSI gt72vr 7rd dominator. So do MSI sell their computers unbranded to resellers? Anyway I was looking for a computer that i can bring around in the camper or on the boat. Won't travel with this beast since its half the weight as luggage :) So far i'm impressed by the build quality, does'nt run hot and the screen is really good. And "Webhallen" offers 3 years warrenty on the computer so i think its a good deal.

    They do. One of the more popular computers on this forum is the MSI 16L13, which is sold as the Eurocom Tornado F5 and HIDEvolution EVOC 16L-G-1080. It's a 15-inch notebook with a full desktop CPU and GTX 1080 GPU. There are others as well, including some new thin-and-light models that are sold by the same retailers.
