    I got to mess around with Sager's NP6852 (Clevo N850HK1) this week and did a little review on it with my thoughts as a consumer. I was really impressed with the power of the Ti version over the standard and I'll admit I didn't think the performance gain would be as significant as it was. This is an excellent laptop for people looking into affordable 1080P solutions that won't have to worry about the problems a 2GB frame buffer will cause now or down the road as it did with RE7 and For Honor. I hope you like it.

    @Equatis At timestamp 4:16 you called a chip the "Intel HD 630 chip." This is actually the HM175 Platform Controller Hub (PCH) chipset. Graphics is done on the CPU die.

    Ahhh OK good catch. I'll throw an update in the description since Youtube is saying goodbye to annotations.

    @Equatis Thanks for the review! I've been going back and forth between this and the NP8155 and this is the first really extensive review of this specific model that I've seen. I've been having to go off of videos for the NP5855 but there are just so many differences between the two- the chassis is the same but the screen, keyboard, and more are completely different so reviews on the heat, fans, etc is a huge help. This is a really welcome review!

    @felaptop No problem sir. I'm glad you found it useful for your purchasing decision. The 6852 chassis is listed as "model a" in the user manual while the 5855 was "model b" and it felt great versus the 5855 and my tank-like 8153 :)

    Anyhow, I hope you enjoy the laptop.

    @Equatis How would you compare it to the NP8153? I know the NP8153 uses the Skylake, has a shinier 1070 (whereas I'm just looking at the 1060 in the NP8155), and a battery draining G-SYNC (the gaming is less important for me as I'm mainly using it for an everyday laptop and light video and photo editing). But I'm pretty sure it's the same chassis as the NP8155.

    I'm checking out your NP8153 review video right now but how would you compare them head-to-head? For instance, how do you feel about the keyboard (same?), temps and heat distribution, fan noise, audio, and just general feel for things like weight (specs are similar but how about feel), durability, etc? For instance, I love the removable battery in the NP6852 and the $300 I'd save but the build quality on the NP8155 looks a bit nicer.

    I stayed up too late last night playing Wildlands so my brain is running a bit slow. Are you asking those questions regarding the 6852 vs 8153?

    @Equatis It's more of a "could you compare the 6852 to your 8153 in those areas" as I'm considering the 8155, which is pretty similar to the 8153 (1060 vs 1070 and non-gsync monitor aside).
