Reviews for the Eurocom Monster 1.0

90% Eurocom Monster 11.6in Gaming Laptop Review
Source: Hardwareheaven English
When a company creates a product such as the Monster and then pitches it at an entry level price which compares with Ultrabooks and Alienware's M11x it is clear that there are more than a few high quality systems to compete with, or differentiate from. Eurocom do reasonably well on this front though with their textured lid and keyboard surround.

Eurocom Monster 1.0 11.6" Gaming Notebook Review
Source: Hot Hardware English
Eurocom is going for something here--a balance of performance, portability, and price--and although we like where this is going, the company just missed hitting the sweet spot yet. For starters, the $1605 price tag isn’t bad, but it doesn’t stop buyers in their tracks; they’ll likely shop around for potentially better deals on other systems.

80% Eurocom Monster review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Despite its quirky keyboard, temperamental touchpad and average screen, the 11.6-inch Eurocom Monster is a great gaming laptop if you’re after something that’s as portable as they come while remaining affordable. It offers excellent connectivity and is highly configurable, with specifications that really have no business in such a small chassis. Last but far from least, featuring a 2GB Nvidia GeForce GT650M across the range means that even demanding titles can be run at reasonable detail levels on the base spec.

80% Eurocom Monster 1.0
Source: PC Mag English
If you're tired of lugging your 12-pound desktop replacement gaming laptop to and from LAN parties or just want a highly portable laptop that offers game-worthy performance, the Eurocom Monster 1.0 has you covered. It may not be the coolest looking laptop out there, and you won't get as much time between battery charges as you will with other 11-inch laptops, but when it comes to performance, it truly is a Monster and is our new Editors' Choice for ultraportable gaming laptops.

Eurocom Monster 1.0: Clevo's Little Monster
Source: AnandTech English
I love the Eurocom Monster. There’s no other way to say it. This isn’t to say that it’s a perfect system, because it isn’t close. The design is dull, the screen is miserable, and apparently the design team forgot that cooling is part of thermal design. It’s crazy that this system exists, and that’s why I love it.

Eurocom Monster 1.0 (Clevo WS110ERF) – Review
Source: Gadgetmix English
The copper cooling heatsink keeps the internals racing along without throttling and makes true laptop gaming possible, and four hours of moderate use is quite acceptable for such a powerful notebook. And all in a trusty chassis weighing less than four pounds.

70% Eurocom Monster Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Eurocom Monster proves that you can get an 11-inch notebook with serious gaming muscle. This pricey but very capable $1,444 mini rig can play the latest titles and go with you anywhere, and the built-in SSD adds an extra dose of speed. However, the keyboard feels netbookish, and we wish the display were brighter. Despite these drawbacks, the Monster is an impressive little powerhouse.

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.  

3720QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.6 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1250 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
