Reviews for the Schenker XMG P304

80% Review Clevo W230SS (Schenker XMG P304) Barebones Notebook | Notebookcheck
Small and powerful. Small and/or thin gaming notebooks have become increasingly popular amongst notebook users. Besides the Alienware 14, Razer Blade 14, MSI GE40 and Gigabyte P34G, the Schenker XMG P304 targets the same customers. A strong argument for the 13-inch device is Nvidia's brand-new GeForce GTX 860M.

The P304 isn’t as good-looking as its competitors, and it lacks a couple of bells and whistles, but it makes up for its lack of style with a much lower price: this model costs £999, which is at least £300 cheaper than every competitor – and more than £500 more affordable than the Alienware 14. If you need a more portable gaming laptop but don't want to pay top dollar for the pleasure, the Schenker XMG P304 is a decent option for you.

80% Schenker XMG P304 review: a laptop that provides strong performance at a competitive price
Source: PC Advisor English
The new GeForce 860M doesn't break new ground for gaming performance, but the XMG P304 still provides strong performance for games and other applications at a competitive price. It's also a lot more portable than most gaming laptops, so it can earn its keep when you're away from home as well.

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

These graphics cards are able to play the latest and most demanding games in high resolutions and full detail settings with enabled Anti-Aliasing.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.  


4810MQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.8 GHz with Turbo Boost support. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4600 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.07 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
