Schenker launches Clevo-based Flex F516 and F526 notebooks
The wide configuration options of the new Flex series can be adapted to specific needs of the customer. Business users have also been taken into account during the design of the new series. One of the first models in the series is the Schenker F516, which features desktop Skylake CPU options and a docking port. The docking station will be sold separately and can provide additional ports or even an external drive. Users can configure from a Core i3-6300T up to a Core i5-6500T, i5-6600T, or i7-6700T with integrated Intel HD Graphics 530. RAM is available up to 16 GB.
As for storage options, both the Flex F516 and F526 will make use of PCIe M.2 SSDs. The similarly sized models are equipped with identical backlit keyboards and TPM 2.0. The F516 model will have a smart card reader and a Homebanking Computer Interface (HBCI) chip for more secure online banking.
For casual gamers, the Flex F526 is recommended due to its GTX 950M GPU with 2 GB GDDR5 VRAM and IPS display. The Intel Core i3-6100H, i5-6440HQ, and i7-6700HQ are some of its CPU options. One of the defining features of the F526 is that it works with just 2 heat pipes and two fans. The fans can operate independently from one another depending on CPU or GPU demand.
The Flex F516 and F525 are now available at select retailers starting at 850 Euros and 950 Euros, respectively.
