80% Schenker XMG U505 review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The U in U505 stands for “Ultimate”, and this machine lives up to that moniker in many categories: it’s got barnstorming graphics, a powerful processor, more versatility than we’ve seen from any other gaming notebook and ergonomics that compete with the best gaming portables. Despite all of those attributes, its appeal is limited by its chunky design, poor battery life and stratospheric price, all of which mean it’s likely to remain in its own luxurious niche.
