What is the best place to purchase a Clevo Notebook?

 

clevo

CLEVO is a large Taiwanese computer company specializing in laptops.  While the Clevo brand name is perhaps not widely known, their products are re-branded and sold by known boutique brand OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers)… notably Alienware, Sager, VoodooPC, Falcon Northwest, etc. 

They are also considered (by whoever knows about notebooks) to design and manufacturer the best of the best notebooks in terms of superior build quality and innovative designs.

Established in 1983, as an ODM (Original Design Manufacturer), they sell barebones ranging from laptop to portable computing solutions for both AMD and Intel processors.  Clevo is one of the world’s most preferred ODM partners and markets their products in more than 50 countries, and have established service centers in the USA, Germany, Britain, China, and Taiwan.  Their main notebook range includes:

* PortaNote (denoted with an D*** in the model number) – Desktop Replacement and Multimedia systems, with features like support for 2 optical drives and 2 hard drives with an approximated weight of 12.5 lb (5.7 kg).

* MobiNote (denoted with an M*** in the model number) – Thin and Lightweight systems with superior build quality and performance.

* TabletNote (denoted with a T*** in the model number) – Tablet computer systems.

* LCD PC (denoted with an L*** in the model number) – Portable Desktop all-in-one solutions.

To spot a Clevo (for fun):

Within the previous years’ models, the majority of Clevo notebooks have one distinct thing in common… the metallic circle on the top-center, above the LCD where a built-in camera is.

clevoclevo

FYI:  When Clevo ships out their notebooks, they are all in barebones form.  The OEMs then install the custom (yet standardized) components that a customer would choose… and may even re-brand the notebook with a new coat of paint, adding stickers, and other customizations.

Definition of Barebones: (from Wikipedia) A barebone computer is a half-assembled platform that consists of a case with a power supply, a motherboard preinstalled into the system case, and a cooling system.  Barebones are usually designed in a non-standard way and cannot be assembled out of widely available hardware parts. The purchaser of such a platform only has to equip it with a CPU, RAM, hard drive and additional input/output devices depending on his/her own needs.

Final Thoughts:

The best place purchase a Clevo notebook is more subjective than we like.  But by making this guide, I hope that you can get more insight on whichever seller that you are looking towards for future purchases.

Another thing about the rating systems is that, we, as a computer consumer should voice our opinions and complaints because, as you can see, some of the ratings are a bit skewed since there are only a few reviews for a certain company and many on another.

Hope this helps, Game on People,
