Reviews for the Eurocom Shark 3
The Eurocom Shark 3 (Clevo W355SS chassis) is a solid if not terribly exciting 15.6-inch gaming notebook. It has a no-frills design as expected from a Clevo chassis; the plastic exterior is bested by other brands that market more on design like Alienware. That aside the Shark 3 ticks all the right boxes to get our recommendation. We liked its colorful 1080p anti-glare display, excellent overall performance for all tasks including the latest games, good keyboard and touchpad, plentiful port selection, great battery life for a desktop replacement and reasonable starting price. The build quality could be stronger but it’s passable if an attractive design isn’t paramount. The chassis is thicker than a typical 15.6-inch notebook at 1.68 inches but with the benefit of improved cooling and upgrade options; it’s still relatively light however (5.95 lbs)

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M: Upper mid-range graphics card from the GeForce GTX 800M series.

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.
