Great laptop, bad luck 6/19/2019 11:52:57 PM

Pros: - Awesome performance on both the CPU and GPU! Performing to spec, unlike most laptops.
- Discrete, business-like appearance with some horsepower underneath.
- Precision touchpad with fingerprint sensor
- Amazing customer support

Cons: - Soft touch plastic instead of a matte plastic (not within Eluk's control, unfortunately!)
- Went through several RMAs, ended up returning the unit due to stress more than anything.

Overall Review: In my continuing streak of recent bad luck with technology, I ended up getting a lemon MB-15 from Eluktronics. Besides some really odd failures that I was told weren't normal, and that I was the only one who had RMA'd under such conditions, the laptop was great. I'm not a fan of soft touch plastics, which this laptop's palmrest is EXCLUSIVELY made out of, but I dealt with it in the time I had the machine. If you like that stuff, I don't really understand you, but to each their own! I know a lot of people like it, but I'm a bit texture sensitive.

Performance is great (granted that you get the $35 cooling upgrade) and the CPU and GPU run amazingly fast granted that you sue Throttlestop to fix the PL1 and PL2 drop when the GPU is enabled. Keep in mind this is a GK5CN6X chassis, and as a result many of the Mech-15 G2 or GK5CN#Z guides might not work on this machine. Battery upgrades? Yes! Keyboard stuff? No. This RGB keyboard is a four-zone one, not like the per-key on the Mech 15, so keep that in mind. It's also not mechanical.

In regards to the support I got from Eluktronics, it was stellar. I was in contact with one of Eluk's great staff members, specifically Winston, and he helped me have an absolutely amazing experience to the best of his abilities. Unfortunately this laptop didn't end up working out for me, and I've moved on to something else mostly for the sake of experimentation.

If you're looking for a solid, cheaper alternative to something like the X1 Extreme or an XPS 15 and don't mind sacrificing a bit of the premium finish that those laptops offer, this is a great choice! Hopefully you'll be luckier than me. If you weren't, for the love of all that's techie, please leave a review! I shouldn't be the lone voice on this kind of thing. :D

Laptop is good - service could improve 1/23/2019 10:16:59 AM

Pros: The laptop itself hasn't developed any issues in the two months I've been using it.
It runs cool thanks to good vent holes on the bottom and sides (although I did opt for the artic silver paste) - so no issues here.
The screen doesn't flex too much - this particular model has a thinner bezel around the edges which looks OK (although still not up to a par with the HP screen I had last).
It's relatively thin (compared to my last HP laptop) but just as heavy - i.e. usual weight.
The keyboard has fancy colors which can be changed (if that's your thing). More important, I like the feedback from the keys and the layout is good with a full size numeric keypad to the right.
It comes with a built-in card reader which is always helpful along with the usual USB, ethernet, and HDMI ports. Some of the USB are 3.0 and 3.1 / Type C standard.
I like the touchpad - it's glass which makes a change from the usual surface and the l/r buttons are distinct.
In all, I'm happy so far with this laptop although time will tell how long it lasts.

Cons: Service was poor in the beginning. I left two messages but no one got back to me to help resolve some issues I was having setting it up - which I resolved myself after hours of messing around with it. However, after I left a scathing review on their website, William (the CEO) reached out to me which impressed me. Just the fact that he reached out to me helps to make things because it shows the company wants to do the right thing. So my review went from 2 stars to 4 stars just because of this fact.
