Hey folks,

 

Just wanted to share a great deal I found, in case any of you had interest. The Ekultronics Pro Mech-15 is on sale, for only $1,204.95 with the following configuration:

 

Processor: Core i7-7700HQ Quad Core (Default)

Memory: 8GB DDR4 RAM (Optional)

Graphics: 8GB GeForce GTX 1070 (Free, Optional)

Drive: 2TB 5400 RPM HDD (Free, Opional)

Display: 15.6", 1080p, 72% NTSC, anti-glare IPS (Default)

Keyboard: Fully mechanical keyboard, per-key RGB lighting (Default)

Ports: 2 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0, 1 USB 3.1 Type C, 1 HDMI 1.4, 1 DisplayPort, 4-in-1 card reader, Gigabit ethernet RJ45, audio out, mic in (Default)

Bloatware: None. You get Windows, and the fan / RBG controls pre-installed, that's it. No bloatware to speak of. (Default)

 

I've been using it over the past couple of weeks, and I've got to say, it's easily the best laptop at this price point that I've ever seen.

 

In case you're interested, here's a link: http://www.eluktronics.com/MECH-15/


 

A couple of things worth mentioning:

  • The specs listed above are mostly configurable - You can select options to better suit your needs, including more RAM, 2 SSD's, harddrive, etc.
  • The GTX 1070 is a free upgrade over the base model. The base laptop has a GTX 1060, just select the GTX 1070 on the configuration when selecting components for the laptop
  • The base laptop costs $1,050 - The 2 TB HDD, the GTX 1070 are both free - The rest of the price just came from Windows 10 ($90) and the memory ($65). If you already own a spare copy of Windows 10, or have spare memory, then your price may be even closer to the base price instead ($1,050).
  • Delivery within the United States only

 

The sale ends on June 30th. Me being the complete potato I am, I forgot to make this post until now. Still, the sale is active for another 2 days.


 

I hope this was helpful for someone! If you have any questions, let me know.

Damn, that's pretty good. Not far off of the specs of the desktop I just built for about double the price.

Plastic hotplate, give it six months to a year then cooling issues galore then after another year or so then it will be a brick. Really cant trust modern bga laptops at all.

Not really. Most all of these laptop building sites rebrand Clevo’s of various models. Normally you’ll get your money’s worth without the mainstream brand names and warranties that come at a premium. They’re actually considered pretty good gaming laptops.

 

I purchased Microcenter’s 17” laptop (Clevo pa71hs-g) for $1299 reg $1499, but they normally drop to what I bought mine for once a month it seems. No mechanical keyboard, but I’ll take the gsync over it any day. If you’re in the market and have a microcenter nearby, the 15” and 17” are worth a look. 

 

Frequently at $1199

Repaste! They’re not desktop temps, but as long as they’re properly vented and ran at max fan, it should be adequate and even better with a cooling pad. My temps don’t exceed 81celcius at max anything in the summer months. But I’m careful to allow proper intake and use a cooling pad when at home. Without a cooling pad, I’ll easily hit 92 celsius. But still well within working tolerance. WASD is just too uncomfortable to play on at that temp, as you said, “hotplate” indeed. 

 

I was so against a gaming laptop and figured I’d have little use for it since I have a decent rig. The gaming laptop has brought the lazy out of me! Walk upstairs to my office or game at the dining/coffee table? Will go days to weeks without powering on my rig.

Seems basically identical to a laptop I just got from CyberPower. The only differences was mine came with a GTX 1050ti, 16GB of DDR4 and 250gb SSD with a 1TB HDD. Only ended up paying about $860 after taxes and shipping!

 

That's still a nice find, but it seems like you are basically paying for the 1070 in the base price, it would just be a shame for someone not to get the free upgrade.
