    Clevo has basically the same opportunities as their competition.

    Precision engineering and manufacturing, especially regarding the fit and function of heat sinks, needs to be job #1 rather than a que sera sera affair.

    They also need to not release any more products to production that have firmware that suffers with TDP and power limit throttling. If they cannot get the firmware to the point that it functions properly with no firmware mods, it shouldn't be offered for sale to anyone.

    If ODMs do not have the resources to thoroughly test and verify that what they sell is going to be excellent in every way before releasing it to production and QC spot checks in place to verify the stuff rolling off the assembly line is everything it is supposed to be, then they should find another line of work.

    None of them are doing us any favors by selling mass-produced broken garbage. We would all be better off with nothing than spending money on broken trash.

    I think they do it to save costs and leave that work for the "stores" that sale their products. After all they are an ODM, they provide a service to companies, not end-users.
    I'm only talking about ODMs here, a Dell, Razer, MSI doing the same thing is quite different.

    Still, to be on topic:

    - Option to ditch 2.5" slot and have a bigger battery. Asus has this and you can choose between a bigger battery or more storage.
    - Thinner bezels, but don't put the camera on the bottom of the screen neither compromise cooling to save a few inches.

    I can't seem to get Windows 10 Creators Update to install properly with the GTX 980M in discrete mode. I had to do a clean install on my Clevo P650RG-G so the update would install properly. After being able to install the Creators Update, I am now unable to install the latest Geforce driver which crashes and restarts midway through the installation. I tried installing Clevo Control Center, the laptop and it also kept on crashing and rebooting. I had to switch to Hybrid mode in the bios to fix the problem so now I'm stuck using the integrated graphics.

    Any ideas on how to get my GTX 980M to work with the Creators Update?

    The whole system is limited to 480w power draw. I have the 780w PSU which confirms the 480w throttle point.

    @Mr. Fox had the same problem with the DM3 until prema stepped in.

    I wholeheartedly agree with @Phoenix

    The keyboard is quite bad for writing long texts.

    I need to write long scripts and the built-in keyboard can't help me at all...

    Sooo they sell their systems with 2x330W(660W total) but only allow 480W on stock bios?
