87.6% Schenker XMG U726 (Clevo P870DM) Notebook Review | Notebookcheck
Extreme athlete. Desktop performance in a laptop? The brand new GeForce GTX 980 makes this possible. Schenker Technologies belongs to the first manufacturers launching a suitable gaming notebook. We checked whether the steep price is justified.

It’s vastly expensive, sure, and more cost-conscious buyers will realise that they could buy a compact games PC with a similar spec for half the cost. But if you have a passion for gaming and money to burn and want a games machine you can stash away with ease, the U726 is perfect.
