Compact beast. Compact or powerful? The Schenker XMG C405 is both. This 14-inch model runs all the latest games but we recommend using headphones.

Comment

Model: The Schenker XMG C405 is a more down to earth and simpler looking custom gaming laptop but still able to pack in a punch. At first glance, the Schenker XMG C405 looks like a business laptop with a black cover and silver color scheme. Edges are rounded with a more traditional laptop silhouette and the black tile keyboard features a white LED backlight. The hinge system is solid and holds the 14 inch FHD LED backlit AHVA display. Color representation is very good with 72% GAMUT and the screen brightness is good.

The 1.67 kg laptop is lightweight and slim yet can stay cool thanks to its dual fan configuration. Hardware on the device consist of an Intel Core i7-4720HQ quad-core processor clocked at 2.60 GHz, a maximum of 16 GB 1866MHz DDR3 RAM, an NVIDA GeForece 970M or an NVIDIA GeForce 965M GPU depending on the configuration selected. Storage can be configured to accept a 9.5 mm 2.5 inch SATA 3 and an mSATA 3 SSD combination. Audio quality is another strong point with speakers using the Dolby Home Theater v4 technology. Other capabilities include a card reader, an HDMI port, a VGA out, four USB 3.0 ports and an HD webcam. The Schenker XMG C405 comes with a battery life of up to 6 hours of general usage. 

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M: Lower high-end graphics card based on the Maxwell chip GM204 and GM206 (newer 2016 version with higher clock rates). Part of the GeForce GTX 900M series. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » 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.  
4720HQ: Haswell-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.6 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.6 GHz. 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.
14":

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

1.848 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
