Forget cheap. A high-end laptop based on AMD hardware - we have not seen that for quite some time. HP dares this experiment, and installs the fastest Carrizo APU alongside an SSD and a WQHD IPS panel in its EliteBook 745 G3.

Schenker XMG P406 (Clevo P640RE) Notebook Review

86% Schenker XMG P406 (Clevo P640RE) Notebook Review

Small rocket. Serious gaming devices with a 14-inch screen are rare; the majority of gamers prefers a larger screen instead of a higher mobility. At least the compact dimensions do not prevent extreme performance, which is proven by Schenker's new device. Chassis and input devices are great. So the only thing we have to find out is whether the display, sound and emissions can meet the high expectations as well.
