Conclusion

The P370EM is a step in the right direction in terms of overall design and is welcome departure from Clevo’s traditional  “boring” notebook appearance. That said, the P370EM still follows the long-standing Clevo practice of emphasizing performance over fit and finish. The P370EM might deliver some of the best-in-class benchmark scores among 17-inch gaming and multimedia notebooks, but Clevo (and Eurocom) have a long way to go if they want to surpass the build quality and appearance of the Alienware M17x or HP ENVY 17 notebooks.

If you can live with less-than-perfect build quality and good (but not great) appearance then the Eurocom Scorpius (Clevo P370EM) is one of the best 17-inch gaming notebooks that money can buy and one of the few notebooks that offers dual NVIDIA GeForce 680M graphics cards in SLI for exceptional in-game performance.

Pros:

  • Good high-resolution display
  • Very, VERY good performance
  • Nice backlit keyboard
  • Many ports and expansion options

Cons:

  • Noisy fan
  • Hollow, plastic feel
  • Battery is pretty much just for emergency use
