    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?

    Yeah, just crappy cancer firmware. Most laptops have this issue. NONE OF THEM SHOULD... not even the BGA garbage should.

    The MSI 16L13 has the same problem (not 480W, but same in principle) with the new EC versions. Anything newer than EC 111 on my Tornado F5 is junk due to CPU TDP throttling.

    With a machine like the P870 this is inexcusable and unforgivable. It's purchased by performance enthusiasts and elitists specifically because it is not a castrated turdbook, and it should not have ANY turdbook character traits to it.
