Reviews for the Schenker XMG A501 (W150HRM)
A Breath of Perfection. The Schenker XMG A501 may look plain, but it has great aspirations: taking the best attributes notebooks have to offer, integrating them into a single laptop, and creating the perfect all-round laptop. The matt display and Optimus graphics switching technology promise great mobility, and the integrated Nvidia GeForce GT 555M is sure to excite gamers. Does the competition stand a chance?
