    ATTENTION NOTEBOOK ENTHUSIASTS!!!

    Nvidia has decided to block overclocking on their mobile GPUs starting with the 347.xx driver series, calling it a "bug" that was corrected!


    If you find this as unacceptable as I do, please take part in the following petition started by our follow NBR brother iata and survey by MySn in order to bring this development to a halt! Otherwise, machines like the P65xSx series will NOT be developed anymore in the coming years, due to (understandable) lack in mobile enthusiast hardware!

    Thank you in advance, much appreciated!

    Great news everyone! It seems like the ****storm emanating from the mobile enthusiast community made Nvidia rethink its position:

    Thanks for all your support in this, lets hope Nvidia stays true to its word and releases an overclocking-capable driver next month! If not, you all now know exactly what to do ;)


    Alright folks, in anticipation of my new rig I thought I'd start a respective owner's lounge :D

    edit: even though my next rig wont be a P651SG after all (P751ZM a.k.a. Batman got a hold of me!), I'll continue to take care of this OP ;) just hit me up via pm or a post in this thread if u want anything important added to the OP. enjoy!

    I'll try and keep this post updated with pics, links to reviews, general specs and infos and I'm also hoping to be joined pretty soon by other prospective owners of this awesome Clevo model :)

    Let's get this started! :)

    Cheers!

    I'm really looking forward to getting the P65XSE, but I'm not sure where to buy from. I kinda wish I could get the P651SE, but so far the only vendor I've found that carries it is in the EU, and it would cost WAY too much to get it shipped to me in the US (I'm on a ridiculously tight budget). I'm also hoping for one that sells to the US that will offer a CPU upgrade. This will be my first upgrade since my Precision M4400, and since I don't get many chances to buy a new laptop, I need to get as much system as I can.

    So far, these are the system builders I've found that are offering versions of the P650SE/SG (brushed) and/or P651SE/SG (sanded):

    Mythlogic (P650SE/SG): Dia 1614

    Eurocom (P650SE/SG): M5 Pro

    Schenker (P651SE/SG): XMG P505 Pro

    pcspecialist (P650SE/SG): Defiance 15

    Aftershock PC (P650SE/SG): Aftershock S-15

    Scan (P650SE/SG) 3XS Graphite LG1520

    MONSTER® (P650SE) TULPAR T5 V4.1.1

    If anybody knows of any others, especially those that are selling in the US and offer a CPU upgrade, please share!

    @dabeer: bluemobility and xtreem in poland are also offering the 651 version at a ridiculously low price (because its poland i guess! :D) go ahead and check out their configuration pages, i for one thought their prices were insane :) (identical config that i ordered for like 600€ less :-O)

    but if push comes to shove, would it be so bad to get the 650 instead? its just looks, after all, and the important thing (especially on a tight budget) is performance :)

    Thanks - I knew I had seen others, but was having a hard time tracking them back down.

    Edit: I wonder if I'm getting bad currency conversion rates, but those are coming in at a base price that's about $150 higher than I can get the 650 for here - and that's before importing!

    Oh, absolutely. If the 650 is cheaper by anything more than about $10 for the same specs, it'll be 650 all the way. But if I can get the 651, why not? :)
