Good Price-Performance Ratio: Schenker XMG Core 15 (Tongfang GK5CP6V)
Those who are on the move a lot and don't want to make do without a decent portion of (gaming) power, might like the XMG Core 15 from Schenker Technologies. With a weight of 2 kg (~4.4 lb) and a footprint of 36 x 24.4 cm (~14.2 x 9.6 in), the 15-inch notebook is not only comfortably light, but also pleasantly compact. Although the notebook offers graphics switching and has a low power consumption, it lacks in battery life, due to the small battery (46 Wh). In practice, you should not count on more than 3-4 hours.
On the other hand, the Core 15 offers a quickly responding and relatively contrast-rich 144-Hz panel. Additional positive points include the RGB illumination and the decent price-performance ratio. For less than 1500 Euros (~$1637), buyers will receive a hexa-core processor, 16 GB of RAM, an NVMe SSD, and, most importantly, a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, which allows playing almost all games smoothly at 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and maximum detail level.
However, we also notice see some places where corners were cut, such as the connections (no Tunderbolt 3 and not even USB 3.1 Gen2) and the sound system. In addition, like most other gaming laptops, the device becomes quite loud under load.
