    well as of now and i am aware there is a model line with socketed cpu of ryzen from 1660ti to 2070
    the one in particular i find interest is the
    nh50af1
    i am considering to move out of helios 500 ryzen laptop which i am an owner to this series , i am a tech enthusiastic and will buy this a barebone , considering that 4900hs is starting to emerge too i am a bit on the site to wait more to see if actual reviews of this unit will emerge.

    Barebone can depend on the prices offered for the parts/software, sometimes getting a basic kit can make sense.

    Yep, the AM4 chips are going to give some nice performance and features but they are not going to have the same power efficiency at lower loads as the new APUs.

    well considering my options and after having the acer predator 500 with 2700 this will be the next step for me
    currently found a competitive barebone but i need feedback on company to move on to my order

    If you don't care about portability and battery life the AM4 chips are going to do very nicely.

    The "Clevo NH55AFW" comes with a regular AM4 Desktop socket.
    Der8auer on youtube tested an early version of it.
    link:

    Thats the XMG-branded version.
    He has an unlocked version of the bios. Ram overclocking didnt work, yet tho.

    I am getting the regular "Clevo NH55AFW" branded version from this shop: https://laptopparts4less.frl/game-l...evo-NH55AFW-RTX-2070-game-laptop-samenstellen

    They apparently already have it in stock. They seem to have the cheapest price. I ordered mine via email, since i am buying it without ram or windows-installation.
    I have e-mailed them about an unlocked BIOS, but they probably won't reply before monday.

    If you're looking to get rid of your Helios 500 with Ryzen/Vega, I'd be interested in that laptop (depending on where you are and price you might want for it - I'm in UK btw).

    That said, I wouldn't be so quick to discard the Helios 500 with Ryzen/Vega.
    Its a pretty powerful system with a really great GPU which can be overclocked to match more or less desktop GTX 1080 without exceeding its 120W TDP, and it has much larger compute at its disposal than any comparable NV GPU's which is very useful in content creation.

    Plus the cooling in the Predator Helios 500 is ridiculously powerful and the unit is QUIET.

    Generally the cheaper places wont be into that sort of thing.
