Our test notebook of the Eurocom Racer (Clevo P150HM) has the following specifications:
Eurocom allows full customization of the Racer (or Clevo P150HM as most resellers call it). You just need to be aware of what you're buying. The reason we say that is simple: It's possible for an uninformed customer to visit the Eurocom website and unintentionally purchase a notebook with no operating system and much less impressive hardware than what we tested in our top-of-the-line model. Consider talking to some of our forum members in the Sager/Clevo discussion forum to help answer your questions if you've never bought a custom gaming notebook before.
PERFORMANCE AND BENCHMARKS
As mentioned, our test configuration of the Eurocom Racer is packed with an Extreme Edition Core i7 processor, one of the most powerful notebook graphics cards currently available, a fast solid state drive and 8GB of the fastest laptop memory currently available. In short, this 15-inch notebook has better hardware inside than many larger, heavier 17-inch gaming notebooks. You'll have a hard time finding a 15-inch consumer laptop with these kind of specs from Dell, HP, or even ASUS.
The fast 128GB SSD helped boost the PCMark scores, but even with a slower hard drive it's safe to say the Racer would have generated pretty impressive benchmark scores. In terms of in-game performance, you won't find many games that the AMD Radeon HD 6990M can't handle on high settings and still give you average frame rates of at least 30 FPS. In short, this is an incredible gaming machine.
Of course, you can also use this hardware for serious office productivity like editing a massive library of digital images or CAD renderings. That's why the Racer is available with several options for mobile workstation graphics instead of consumer gaming graphics ... just in case you need a powerful notebook for work rather than play.
