Reviews for the Eurocom Monster 4
Source: Tech PowerUP
Overall, build quality is very good, which is a nice bonus when you consider that upgrading the Monster 4 does not void the warranty. That's right, you can take the bottom off and swap RAM, HDD, SSD, etc. without worry. The keyboard and touch pad certainly won't replace a good mechanical keyboard and mouse, but they are above average and worked fairly well in that I did not notice any weird quirks or issues. Finally, there is the complete lack of any kind of additional software. No bundled Norton, no nothing, this is a bare-bones Windows 10 installation, which is fantastic. Eurocom has done a great job when it comes to a small and very portable lightweight laptop.

Eurocom’s Monster 4 is a bit of an oddly-named notebook. It doesn’t look like a monster, after all. In fact, its looks are subdued, which I kind of appreciate. People will look at this notebook not even realizing that it could play the latest games at 1080p, and especially not 1440p (with some caveats) with an external monitor. It looks professional, despite being a gaming notebook.

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.
