    Sup,

    If anyone hasn't seen it yet: https://www.mysn.de/xmg-neo-gaming-laptops/xmg-neo-15

    Looks pretty good and the cooling system visible in the Video looks beefy enough. Shame that it lacks Thunderbolt 3 and has just a tiny battery.

    @Dan@Dan thanks for posting! Any chance the title of the thread could be changed? There's no "Schenker" in the name, it's just "XMG Neo 15" - "Schenker" is our office/workstation brand. Not blaming you, it's something that reviewer websites continue to do all the time and it confuses everyone ;-)

    Yup, it uses that chassis but it's not the same as the other versions available - ours is sandblasted aluminium and we have a better keyboard installed. Unfortunately they cancelled the larger battery option that we were going to offer at launch - nothing we can do about that.

    The Neo 15 will be available at the end of May, there should be more language keyboards available towards the end of the month.

    The shape and feel of the keys are different and in our opinion better, having tested both versions. Both are mechanical keyboards, so the sound is the same but the keyboard typs is part of the USP of the laptop.

    I can't say for sure; personally I think it's unlikely that there will be an option to buy and install a larger battery in the same chassis but rather it will be an option in the next gen. But as I say, I don't know for definite at the moment - I just don't want to get people's hopes up by promising something that isn't defined yet.

    Don't think it's user changable :( Didn't know you lads seperated the branding. Back when i got my P370EM from you it was called Schenker XMG if i remember correctly.

    Does XMG have a English website to order from that converts to US dollars?
    If heard great things about XMG and there laptops always get high reviews but I’m a little hesitant to order from them because I can’t read the language on there site and want to know exactly how much I’m paying for upgrades. ( I may be able to get parts like RAM or storage cheaper here)
