We review the Walmart Overpowered 17 with RTX 2070 graphics and it's actually decent
Walmart started selling their own brand of gaming PCs and laptops late last year. Called the Overpowered series, these systems are simply rebranded chassis designs from white-label ODMs. Its laptops, for example, are designed by the Chinese ODM Tongfang and not by Walmart themselves.
We recently got the chance to check out the 17.3-inch Schenker XMG Neo 17 — otherwise known as the Walmart Overpowered 17 in the United States. The system offers a surprising number of features considering the price such as per-key RGB lighting, RTX 2070 graphics, mechanical keys, a 144 Hz IPS display, and a compact narrow-bezel design. Similar options cost hundreds of dollars more from traditional gaming OEMs like MSI, Asus, or Alienware.
The main drawbacks become apparent after spending just a few days with the machine. The aluminum and plastic chassis tends to creak in certain spots and the thin lid feels especially fragile. The battery is very small for the screen size and the trackpad is difficult to press. Fan noise when gaming is also very loud, though this is to be expected from most thin gaming laptops. In short, it's an impressive gaming laptop for the price so long as you don't plan on traveling very much with it.
