    I had to replace my stolen Clevo with an Alienware. I now realized just how good Clevo's are in comparison to other manufacturers. I am going to save up my $ to get a Clevo as soon as I can. At least I bought a system that has a good resale value!

    Will Clevo be doing anything with the Ryzen processor? When will the 2000-series GPUs come out on Clevos? Any guesses?

    98% no Ryzen, unless CES changes everything and Ryzen destroys Intel offerings at competitive price points.

    Gotta be an insanely garbage AW notebook you found yourself.

    Alienware 17 R5. i7-8750H, 32GB RAM, 512GB Samsung 970 Pro, 2TB Firecuda and a nVidia 1070 video card.

    A total of 3 USB ports - 1 of which is type C.

    I upgraded the RAM and the HDs from when I purchased it.

    Bang for the buck is a lot less than with Clevo - I paid about $300 more for my new laptop than I would have paid for a Clevo with the same specs.

    USB ports - very few USB ports in comparison to Clevo.

    No SD card reader

    much heavier system

    Hinge forward design makes it so it is a lot larger than it needs to be.

    Just a few things that I have found so far.

    What clevo are you comparing it to when you say "same specs?"

    If I had gone with the AW 17 R5 with the 1070 video card, it would have been about $300 more for a similarly spec'd Clevo P955ER.

    It would throttle hard due to not even having a real 1070.
    Also no thunderbolt.
    Extremely loud
    Terrible speakers

    Maybe you should go for the clevo just to see how poop it actually is. Would like to see how you would react to it.
