    Will the 6820HK upgrade be available for this laptop? Would be perfect for an extra $229!

    I'm looking to get the metabox with a GTX 1070 but a locked 6700HQ may not be enough for me.

    •  

      Thanks for the message, The i7-6820HK is now sold out on the P650RS-G and hence not available on the customise menus.
      We do have stock left of the i7-6820HK on the 17.3" P670RS-G though.

        Just ordered the 15.6" with the 6700hq - couldn't resist the deal in the end.

        Hopefully it'll stay relevant after the kaby lake quad cores get released

    Any upcoming deals on the alpha n15? Km after a mid range laptop that can do video editing, multitasking and some light gaming.

      Hi, Out of all the discounts we have done so far, this is the biggest discount we have ever offered.
      Considering we only make $70 on these laptops, Metabox has done a pretty big deal to subsidise the price on these models. I think it is the cheapest GTX1070 laptop on the market.

        Oh it is, to get a laptop with even similar performance, you are looking at generally $2600+, and even then it's not as customisable etc.

    Hi Kris,

    Any chance for deal on P750/P775 - Seeing how Dell now have sale on AW, I'm really tempted to buy laptop with TB3 for future proofing.

    Cheers.

    Hi everyone,
    Just in case you are not familiar with Metabox laptops, all models are sold at base price and spec without Windows OS. Only about 30% on Kong customers buy Windows with their Metabox laptops. A lot of customers are students, either in high school or Uni and they get a free copy of Windows or reduced price, plus we also find that customers already have access to a copy of Windows from their old laptop that they are upgrading from.
    Basically it's an option to not pay extra for something that you don't need or already have.
    Plus there's also the Linux option as well if desired.
    It certainly isn't meant to mean "get a dodgy copy" :)

    Metabox laptops are the most customisable laptops on the market, and the closest thing to building your own laptop like building your own desktop.
    The CPU upgrade option isn't available on the 15.6" model as those chips are now sold out but it is available on the 17.3" version, the i7-6820HK.
    Older models used to have an option to choose your own graphic card as well but this is now limited to the higher spec Prime-X models. Like this one.
    http://www.kongcomputers.com/product-detail/gamers/metabox-p...

    I believe that Metabox laptops give the buyer the option to spec up or spec down the laptop so it perfectly fits your needs.

    Cheers

      I'm just trying to point out some negative aspects of the product to help OzBargainers be better informed consumers but a lot of people seem to think that I'm just picking at it for the sake of picking at it (or taking some kind of personal offence to my opinion on it), and of course OzBargain always loves a good bandwagon (and I didn't even Neg the deal!).

      I would suggest logging in and making your own choice with the pros/cons of the product.

      • +1 vote

        While I agree pointing out negative aspects is a good thing, I read your initial post and frankly it kind of shows a lack of understanding for high performance laptop / desktop replacement products.

        Metabox Clevos are definitely not "no name" products (they are in fact one of the more popular gaming laptops under the Sager brand in the US) and 2 year warranty is pretty standard.

        Not including windows is a plus for some enthusiasts not because of piracy, but various discount that are available for students / some of us who work for certain companies. The price reflects the non inclusion. You don't even have the choice to not cop the cost of another windows licence with an ASUS / MSI / Gigabyte. Some who have retail licenses can even transfer the licence to the new laptop.

        It's not really a desktop "crammed into a laptop" like you say. It has a 6700hq and a mobile version of the GTX 1070, both of which you wouldn't get in a desktop. They are specially designed with much lower TDP but can offer similar performance without those giant heatsinks and fans.

        It also comes with a FHD g-sync screen, rgb keyboard, trackpad, 2.6kg portability and a battery.

        While it's true you can build a tower for much cheaper with better specs, you can't lug a tower around with you for travel or strap it to your back for VR. A tower also doesn't come with a keyboard, g sync monitor or a mouse.

        It's simply not an apples to apples comparison. It's like saying you can build a much more powerful desktop PC compared a similarly priced mobile phone. I think we all already know that if you don't need the portability of a laptop, a desktop is always the way to go.

        I've got a 6600K / GTX 1080 tower at home and I just bought this for the extensive travelling I do. Frankly, nothing comes close for the price.

          wow a 6700HQ & Mobile GTX1070 in a Rugged VR Backpack would be pretty sweet, although Wireless/low latency game streaming to the Vive is starting to become a reality with high frequency directional antenna setup

          I already said in other commands but I'll just rehash again that I didn't realise that Metabox was Clevo, and yes I did come across too strongly.

          I still think that a Windows License and 3 Year warranty extension should be Optional but recommended Defaults, but that's Kong Computer's choice. They aren't technically doing anything wrong but not including it, but I think recommending these would be a good thing for the customer.

          These mobile parts are almost Desktop like in performance, only a little bit crippled.

          Yes it's not an Apples to Apples comparison for Mobile Workstation vs. Desktop. They are two different things. But some people might think that they are getting everything in a Desktop when they are not.

          Congrats on the purchase I hope you enjoy it for many years to come.

          @The Land of Smeg:

          Wireless Vive that works well would definitely be sweet - that thing definitely needs that.

          Apologies, I didn't end up expanding all the other follow-up comments.

          If you go to the Metabox website, you'll see that it's actually the manufacturer's choice to exclude windows and include standard 2yr warranty. Kong are simply resellers who offer the laptops at cheaper prices. My current MSI laptop only came with 2yr warranty anyway.

          The appeal of the Metabox is that they are a lot more customisable than the big names in terms of both hardware and software. That's kind of the point of them - as close as to building your own as you can get with laptops. Should a customer want windows, it's quite simple to select the windows option rather than "no OS" from the drop down box. Same for the warranty period. I don't think recommendations for such a simple process is necessary - the more options the better.

          I agree that people hopefully aren't mislead into thinking this is a desktop system. However, I think the pricing will make that quite obvious.

    Would love this to replace my aging Horize, but not quite ready to put the case forward to the Financial Controller yet!

    Can vouch for Kris & Kong Computers as a service too - bought a laptop for my brother recently and faultless service from start to finish.

    These are pretty good prices. Current gen GPU comes at a price.

    Hi rep, what color gamut range does the default screen have?

  • +1 vote

    The AW15 can be configured for $2639 with 16gb RAM, 256gb SSD+1TB HDD, 99WH battery and Windows OS. I'm thinking that's a slightly better deal.

    •  

      Not necessary , AW for $2639 doesn't have G-SYNC enabled display and only have 256gb SSD vs 525GB in current deal.

      Only 2 things AW really have over this deal is TB3 port and OS if you don't have one.

      Much better configuration on AW 15 will be including : 15.6 inch FHD (1920 x 1080) 120Hz TN+WVA Anti-Glare 400-nits NVIDIA G-SYNC Enabled Display
      which brings it to total $2788 vs. $2467 for Metabox without OS or $2606 with Win10 OS.

      Cheers.

      can you post a link?

          thanks got it, it is a 15". i was looking at the 17" version and couldn't get the same price, thats why. still tossing between the metabox 17 and AW 17..

          @bamsegod:

          Me and you both :)

          Kris has been amazing with his responses and advice today, plus the fact that 17 AW doesn't have G-Sync enabled display definitely puts Metabox ahead ;-)

          Cheers.

          @Pulp Fiction: Not to throw a spanner in the works but don't forget the 4% cashback via cash rewards for purchases from Dell!

          I was tossing up between the AW15 and Metabox as well, and I ended up with the Metabox at $2,298 (only optional extra being 16gb of ram at $49). That's significantly cheaper than the AW15 base 1070 model and I didn't feel that TB3, 99Wh battery, smaller but faster PCIe SSD or 1tb HDD could justify the $340 difference. I already have a copy of Windows however so your mileage may vary.

          Another critical difference was the serviceability of the laptop - I know that Metabox is easy to open up to install extra ram / ssd / HDD or clean without any warranty issues (such as those dumb "warranty with be void if removed" stickers I had on the screwholes on my MSI laptop). I'm not so sure the AW15 will be as user friendly on that regard.

          Cooling is the final consideration - I've heard only good things about the Metabox and mixed re the AW.

          @jeefbeef:

          I ended up ordering 670RS-G with 6820HK for $2647, pretty much for the same reasons you've mentioned above.
          Good luck with your order.

          Now the waiting game begins LOL.
