The Eurocom M5 Pro is based on the latest Clevo P650SE gaming machine. It comes with an I7-4710HQ CPU and a GTX 970M GPU (you can upgrade to GTX 980M too). 8GB of DDR3L included in the basic version and you upgrade it to 2x4GB 1866MHZ configuration for a low price ($10 or something like that). This price does not include an OS.

That deal is good if you are looking for a high performance gaming machine. The GTX 970M GPU for $1220 is currently the most cost effective offer you’ll get. In comparison, the GTX 970M offer will cost you around 50% more and will deliver around 90%-95% higher 3D performance than a GTX 860M machine that will cost you around $800-$850, the least. It means, 50% higher price for almost twice the 3D performance. GTX 965M equipped machines are no better.

Moreover, you get some extra features and good qualities – relatively good thermal handling, TPM 2.0 module (good for bitlocker users, for example), very good B156HAN01.2 IPS display, only 2.6kg in weight, good backlit keyboard for my taste and good storage options (2 Sata connection ports, 2 M.2 ports).

The Clevo P650SE still incorporates the previous generation Haswell I7-4710/20HQ CPU and it won’t be updated to Broadwell (Clevo will jump directly to Skylake). In terms of gaming performance there is almost difference. The Broadwell CPU is more power efficient which might mean you could get less throttling with the P650SE. However, the FPSs of the P650SE are known to be good.

Compared to the new GT72, it is more lightweight, a little bit cheaper (around $200 including coupons for both), has probably a bit better display and no MXM GPU. The GT72 does have USB 3.1 ports, GSync and a 75HZ display which are advantages, but not everyone want those features for $200, especially since the performance is very good anyway.

Competitors / other options

  • Search Newegg or Amazon for 970M options – around $1350 will be the lowest without an IPS display
  • Other Clevo options without OS like Sager NP8651 and more (1, 2 and there are more)

Damn, missed that deal. I guess I can’t stack the student discount with this anyway.

Still waiting for Intel Skylake though, hope it will come out within 2 months. Need a laptop before late September, when college begins.

Ok thanks. How is this reseller for reliability? I’m in the US and I’ve been waiting for a lightweight laptop ~5.7 lbs or less with a gtx 970m, this seems like the best bang for the buck without sacrificing build quality. Only thing putting me off a bit is knowing nothing about the reseller.

They’ve been around for quite some time. You’ll get your laptop. Customer service and concentration could be better. Generally, it’s the same machine as with other resellers

Hey, did some further research and found the MSI GE62 Apache Pro-055: http://www.xoticpc.com/msi-ge62-apache-pro055-p-7951.html

Almost all the same specs. Same CPU, GPU, etc but possibly worse screen since it’s a non IPS I think. But this comes with a two year warranty, including a one year accidental damage warranty. Negative reviews I’ve read for Eurocom as a reseller also pushing me towards this. This system comes to $1349 vs $1230 for the Eurocom, but the $120 you pay extra gives you an extra year of warranty. Thoughts?

As a down, the GE62 case gets hotter. Also, you won’t get higher performance

As an pro, the GE62 comes with 128GB SSD and an OS included

Display is a good PLS display I think. Perhaps the P650SE keyboard is better. Not sure. And it might be less noisy too..

Personally, I wouldn’t pay the extra, but check the forums : https://www.glj.io/forums/topic/did-i-make-a-mistake/

I think you could try this.

There is also the Gigabyte P55W, but I don’t think it’s as good, except the Broadwell CPU..

Hi Gobbler!

Check one message below – everybody ask that (-: their site is really not that user friendly

Thank you! I found the message.
Does this 10% and student 10% stack or only one at a time?

Junky

I don’t think so, but you can call them and try

I am very tempted by this- my W230SS is too small and I can’t complain about a 970m. Also- where do we enter the coupon code?

Junky

everyone asking that – their site is really not that good.
on the message box after ordering the laptop or simply call/email them

Thanks for that. Check the currency depending on where you’re from. By changing to CAD I saved ~$300 (I’m in paying in AUD).

Just curious about how you’re getting a price of $1230? By downgrading the hdd and wireless card I can get the price to $1419 before tax, how much of a discount does the coupon give?

Junky

1. You forgot to change it to USD!
2. Then take off 10% (in your head)
3. 10% off, forgot to add it, thanks
