60% Eurocom Electra (Clevo W560SR) Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Eurocom Electra W560SR presents a mixed value; on the upside it has a gorgeous 1080p IPS display; excellent overall performance; multiple storage drive options; plenty of ports; reasonable battery life and finally a good touchpad. The downsides are centered and the build and design; the overall quality is far below what we'd expect even at this notebook's starting price. The plastics used throughout the chassis are thin and cheap feeling; the keyboard suffers from the same problems. There's a general lack of any features such as nice-sounding speakers and design accents; it's as barebones as the cheapest consumer notebooks. Combine all this with the fact that even in its basic configuration the W560SR is outperformed by competing mainstream notebooks from HP and Dell at the same price point or less. The W560SR is held above water by its display - and for the price of our test unit, that can be had in a competing notebook along with a lot more features.

Filling a gap around $800 price range gaming laptops

One. Wait for the IPS display to come black. Should be soon (meaning, the end of May 2014). Secondly, wait for a discount. Given those two, you’ll get a very cost effective gaming machine with a GTX 850M / GTX 765M performance level, IPS display and two storage bays (one mSata), for like $750-$800 and that’s the best you’ll get with an IPS display.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.

15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.
