    Hopefully these will be in the US in the next couple of weeks. (I guess we should see this around the 15th)

    Not much hype around this model? I hope we see new info by Friday or sometime next week.

    Seriously contemplating buying this, but I want to wait until I see thermal and battery performance. I wonder if its 73w battery + 10875H lasts longer than a Tongfang model with a 62w battery + 4800H I'm also looking at.

    Yeah I am going to definitely pick either the 2070 or 2080 model up.

    I bought an asus G14 and was super disappointed with the performance/thermals (cpu got upto 103C before and after a repaste) the tweaks you had to do to dial it down(disable turbo)the random black screen crap on the amd igpu, the subpar backlit keyboard, and the shoddy fingerprint scanner.

    I hope this laptop has decent thermals and performance. Can't wait to order mine either this Friday or next week (whenever they become available)

    This one looks freaking awesome. I'm looking for a nice laptop after falling in the TUF FX506 trap (returned). It would become my first Clevo based laptop, are they usually any good?

    1.They are great value for the money compared to other brands

    2. They often need more out of the box finetuning

    3. The DTRs are traditionally Clevo's strongest product, the thin & lights are sometimes great, but sometimes they suffer thermal issues. Hence the need for reviews/user experiences before you buy

    4. No bloatware! However, the Clevo Control Center isn't great. There are alternatives such as Obsidian Tools

    You may want to check out the Tongfang models as well in the 'Other Manufacturers' forum.

    Looks like this model is delayed until the 17th. Just got this information today. Super anxious to get my hands on one.

    Just ordered a PC50DD2. Normally I'll get it next week. I'll be sure to post a review after that.
