86% Review Eurocom Racer Gaming-Notebook (2720QM / HD 6970M) | Notebookcheck
A New Challenger. The Canadian manufacturer, Eurocom, is the first to combine a speedy Intel Sandy Bridge processor with a powerful AMD Radeon HD 6970M, housed within the 15.6" P150HM barebone. The big question in the air is, of course, whether this duo can measure up to Nvidia's flagship graphics card, the Geforce GTX 485M?

Perennial speed-laptop maker Eurocom must have taken that advice to heart, because the company set—and met—some very high expectations with its Racer, a 15.6-inch gaming machine. It's plain-looking, and the battery life is poor, but the Racer lives up to its name. It's one of the fastest 15-inch notebooks to ever hit our labs—and a very good value.

85% Review Update Eurocom Racer 2.0 (Clevo P150EM barebones) Notebook | Notebookcheck
Radeon Powerhouse. In this review update, the Clevo P150EM barebones takes the form of a Eurocom Racer 2.0 complete with one of the fastest quad-Core Ivy Bridge processors and the top-of-the-line AMD Pitcairn GPU. Is this Radeon core a wiser option than the equivalent Nvidia offering?
Eurocom Racer 2.0 Review

Several conclusions. First, if you need a laptop that will last long time on one battery charge – that laptop ain’t for you. Although I’m pretty sure that the battery issue has something to do with drivers / Windows / bios, currently this is the situation, and Eurocom reply to me didn’t unveil any future plans to handle it (although they might be working on a fix).

70% Eurocom Racer 2.0 Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
For $3,348, the Eurocom Racer 2.0 is one tricked-out gaming notebook/desktop replacement that delivers solid performance and graphics with a matte display. However, its short battery life and somewhat plain chassis give us pause. To keep things in perspective, the Alienware M17x costs $700 less, but offers a sleeker design, comparable performance, longer battery life and sweeter backlighting features.

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.  

2720QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. 

3920XM: Fastest Ivy Bridge mobile CPU (and fastest mobile CPU at all) at the time of arrival (April 2012) and clocked at 2.9 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.8 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1300 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller. Compared to the other quad-core it features a 10W higher TDP of 55W.


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.
