    The idea is to concentrate all information regarding same chassis in the same thread, independent of variants. In this particular case, it was brought up for Clevo's 2019 lineup but I believe it would be beneficial to all corresponding notebooks.

    Instead of having *** Official Clevo P960ED Owner's Lounge *** and *** Official Clevo P960EF Owner's Lounge *** we could centralize everything in *** Official Clevo P960 Owner's Lounge *** (or even P96x in case Clevo releases a minor update).

    Same thing could be done with *** Official Clevo P970ED Owner's Lounge *** and *** Official Clevo P970EF Owner's Lounge *** being concentrated in *** Official Clevo P970 Owner's Lounge *** (or P97x in case of minor update).

    Finally, doing a merge of *** Official Clevo PB51EF-G Owner's Lounge *** and *** Official Clevo PB51EF Owner's Lounge *** into *** Official Clevo PB51 Owner's Lounge ***.

    I believe those are more or less similar variants of the same chassis (just like MSI GE75 has variants 8RE and 8RF).

    @Ultra Male (original creator) agrees with the suggestion and credit should be given to him for his continued contributions

    Done.

    @Ultra Male ,
    They're merely merged and have their titles changed, but their content is not redacted; please review the first two posts to see if they still make any sense. The first one could list the general specifications that apply to both models and the second to list only the differences.

    The preference is to make combined threads from the start. If there's already an existing thread and there's a new model out with only minor changes then please report the thread for title redaction and either edit the first post yourself or, if that's not yours, ask the OP to do so. A different screen size always counts as a different model, even if the motherboard is 100% identical.

    acknowledged. I could've sworn I've searched for a similar model before creating the lounges but didn't find it.

    Thanks for making everything neater.

    Regards

    Another case here:

    *** Official Clevo PB51EF(-G) Owner's Lounge *** and *** Official Clevo PB50ED-G / PB51ED-G / PB50ED1-G / PB51ED1-G Owner's Lounge *** into *** Official Clevo PB5x Owner's Lounge ***

    *** Official Clevo PB71EF-G Owner's Lounge *** and *** Official Clevo PB70ED-G / PB71ED-G Owner's Lounge*** into *** Official Clevo PB7x Owner's Lounge ***

    The difference between those is simply due to the GPU (RTX 2060 vs 2070 with accompanying thermal solution); everything else is basically the same. They don't seem to warrant different threads. There are even posts discussing the other GPU configurations in each other:

    (in the PB50ED thread)

    (in the PB70EF thread)

    Thanks for reporting :vbthumbsup: . They're now merged, with titles adjusted accordingly.

    To be sure; the first-posted thread will always be the destination thread.

    Two threads have come up that deal with the same chassis but different branding: MAG-15 and XMG Fusion 15. There have been crossposts between them and in both threads there has been talk of other brands, too (Maingear Element, Aftershock Vapor 15 Pro, etc.).
    Due to the general spectrum of the discussion taking place (applicable in general to all brands) I believe it would be better if there was a unique thread that housed all the pertaining information: "Intel-TongFang QC7" or "Intel-TongFang QC7 (Element/Fusion 15/MAG-15/Vapor 15 Pro/etc.)"
    The reason for choosing said title would be the most general categorization available for the chassis (a system designed by Intel and produced by TongFang) encompassing all branding (like it was done on the other TongFang threads regarding Eluktronics, Overpowered/Walmart, XMG, etc.).
    Thanks in advance!

    That reasoning works for me. I merged the threads and changed the title. If you need the title adjusted just report the thread and we'll take care of it.

    Also what do you think of the idea of combing some of...

    Clevo P75x <== Clevo P750TM1-G, P751DM2-G, P750DM-G, P750ZM-G (or whatever they're called)
    Clevo P77x <== Clevo P775TM1-G, P770DM-G, P770ZM-G, etc (or whatever they're called)
    (maybe even the above two into a single combined section, as the main difference is the screen size afaik)
    Clevo P87x <== P870TM-G, P870DM-G, (was there a P870ZM-G?)

    Or would it not be practical (or other reasons) to have similar-chassis Haswell to Coffee Lake laptops in the same thread? Also how far back did the P7x0 series go - were there Sandy Bridge or Lynnfield or Core or Netburst or older versions of those?
