    They are real life images just with graphics added to them, they are not renders and are representative of what you will get.

    Now the P67x series is starting to be phased out on many sites it looks as though I'll be getting this Clevo instead. Looks like they have improved the cooling system from the previous G-sync model which is a major bonus.

    Just want to chime in I got this laptop on Friday, upgraded an older Dell 17R SE with a i7-3610qm and gt650m.

    So far I'm happy with it - trackpad feels a lot better than my old laptop, fingerprint reader is nice.

    Initial things I notice are more software than hardware. I didn't notice it immediately until turning off my AC a few times, fan seems to run at unexpected times - be just browsing and I'll hear the fans ramp up, and check on only at ~1.4 GHz and 45 degrees.

    Sometimes it seems like the keyboard backlight sleep is abrupt, have to try to pay more attention to it but it enough to draw the eye

    It's sound seems good - I wanted top mounted speakers, my Dell had them under the front, did have a subwoofer. The soundblaster app does mess with the sound a bit, which I usually don't like. Without it it's pretty quiet though. But I think the Dell was the same way - quiet at max and no sub until you installed the special driver, it just didn't expose as many adjustments

    I have a possible issue where I got a 960evo upgrade, but samsung magician shows it was in X2 slot and only benchmarked at 1700mb. My understanding should have a X4 primary slot. I took a look at opening it up, pulled all the screws but bottom still seems to be held somewhere in the middle, but waiting to hear back from support with instructions, don't want to find out there's a hidden screw,break clips, etc on a brand new laptop. Too new to find a youtube video, and even support seemed a little confused on the system specs and said would need to contact Sager for disassembly instructions, haven't heard back yet.

    Side note I got mine with the upgraded 7200 rpm drive (is an HGST travelstar 7K1000), the 960evo 256gb. Screen is a LP173WF4-SPF5 panel, nice upgrade over my previous TN 17"

    Great you are happy with it. I got mine on Friday as well.
    Just wondering if you have noticed keyboard being warm near WSAD key area, or is it only me? o_O

    Yeah, I haven't done any serious gaming on it, but that third of the keyboard is a fair amount warmer than the other side

    I wanted to try to catch the keyboard flash thing - it doesn't seem to happen every time, but tend to catch it out of the corner of your eye - can see it in this clip.

    I notice my space bar isn't really lighting up, not sure - seems like it is in some pictures, isn't in others

    Ok, opened it up - there is a screw under the keyboard to remove before the bottom will come off - poke through the marked hole to lift it enough to pull up the keyboard. 960evo was in SSD2, moved to SSD1, now get 2600mb read, added a second SSD.

    Please let us know your temps while playing games for an extended period of time. If you have bf1, overwatch, or witcher 3 those are the most heat producing I've found.

    Oops nevermind - I was looking for the 1070 version
