The W150ERM continues Clevo's tradition of offering a no-frills notebook with excellent performance; the W150ERM turned in some chart-topping benchmark scores. This is one of the few 15.6" notebooks on the market with two drive bays (with a third available by replacing the optical drive). Other things I like about this notebook include the good anti-glare 1920x1080 resolution display and solid amount of input and output ports.
Aside from those features this notebook really is no frills. The all-plastic design is as bland as they come and it feels cheap; the keyboard has mediocre feedback and also feels cheap. The build quality is just average; the cooling system while effective is loud under full load; the battery life is less than expected for a modern 15.6" notebook at under four hours; last but not least the speaker quality is less than acceptable.
Overall the W150ERM (or Fox 4.0 as branded by Eurocom) is worthy of consideration if you're in the market for a nondescript notebook with a lot of performance, a good screen, flexible storage options, and want something different than the usual big-name offerings. Beyond that, it is tough to recommend next to mainstream 15.6-inch notebooks that satisfy in all the areas this notebook does not.
