    I also need to make an edit. The machine in question is not a Clevo re-bran but a Tongfang or Eluktronics-Tongfang re-bran. From what I can gather.

    Walmart's OverPowered (OP) Laptop line offers best value for gaming laptops with the 15+ costing $800 and the 17+ $999, both with an i7 8750h/ GTX 1060 and 144 Hz IPS panels. I tested the 17+ via Live Stream on Twitch and tested Overwatch, BFV, Fortnite, Far Cry 5 and Shadow Of The Tomb Raider. I also showed the BIOS, laptop power and fan profiles as well as back light bleed.

    Walmart's Overpowered gaming line of laptops use TongFang chassis and are available in 15" and 17" formats. Today I take a first look at the Overpowered 17+ which is the same as the Eluktronics MECH-17 Pro-X.
    For $1299 you get :
    17" 144 Hz IPS 1080p display,
    32 GB DDR4 2666 Mhz RAM
    2 TB HDD
    256 GB SSD
    GTX 1060
    i7 8750h

    Available here:

    Review of Alienware 17 R5 - The Dreamy Gaming Machine laptop.bg

    [​IMG]Alienware is a truly iconic name when talking about gaming. Their laptops have always attracted interest in their alien design and high-end hardware.

    This year Alienware 17 R5 comes with the new Core i9-8950HK processor, unlocked for overclocking to 5.00 GHz. The Alienware 17 R5 focuses exclusively on overclocking and extracting maximum performance. Even the video card is factory overclock - rarely found on laptops.

    The biggest question is whether cooling will handle this hardware. Let's find out if Alienware 17 R5 is this year's champion.


    This is what we call progress. Add in more cores to saturate the well known TRIPOD heatsink with more heat... Domed to fail. I really hope Alienware's next refreshed models comes with Turing graphics or this will be even worse in next review.

    Pay extra for less? Well, that makes sense. NOT! If it "focuses exclusively on overclocking and extracting maximum performance" then we have to wonder why it isn't doing better. Seems like another example of saying whatever they think will result in sales rather than good old-fashioned honesty.

    I wonder if Alienware wrote the script for the content of the review, or if the reviewer is just a silly person. Or, maybe they just don't know what they don't know?

    jclausius,

    From those apparently close to Clevo, they overwhelmingly pronounce ODM maker Clevo with a SHORT E vowel sound (via youtube videos and phone calls). ( klev-O ) I found this out when researching my Alienware replacement two years ago.

    Linus Sebastian's pronunciation of Clevo is the correct one as far as I know and it's the pronunciation I use.

    The Tong Fang laptop is the one Brother @B0B has videos about. Interesting that OriginPC is selling the same product ($800 Overpowered brand from Walmart) with their branding for $1400. $600 is a pretty steep premium for nothing but a logo.

    Walmart originally had their 15+ OP model listed at $1399, then $999, $899 to finally $799. At $1399 it's still cheaper than the same spec'd G2 from Eluktronics. Not that i'm justifying either at that price.

    This current price at $799 really screws with my perception of ALL other laptops per price to performance ratio.

    I'm a realist and not a content creator that has their closet filled with amazing hardware to review ( I really wanted to word that differently). Regardless of what's to come for BOAT, I have been blue-collar for way too long (if you only knew how old I was lol). No way I want to change that. Doing so would compromise more than just me and the channel.

    In other words, I would, and do proudly daily, drive these "cheap" laptops and never feel bad doing so, whatsoever.

    With that out of the way! I really want to see some more LGA 15" chassis, like NOW!

    Christ! Even my fingers talk the balls off a rhino!
