Reviews for the Eurocom Racer
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.

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.
