      Yes it starts with the base amount so customers can add their own RAM or SSD's to save money or upgrade via the website. Did you take a look at the upgrade options?

      • +4 votes

        I've looked at the options. The base is already too expensive relative to the options that Ozbargain users have presented as deals recently. see below:

          Fair enough, but I find that Pro users want a faster CPU and this model has the 8 Core i7 for power processing, not an i5 like on the MSI.
          This deal is more for designers and video editors etc.
          If you just want to game on a laptop then that MSI is a great deal.
          We also have a gaming version for $1779 and the faster 8 Core i7 CPU. 16GB RAM is $49 extra, and 500GB PCIe SSD is $19 extra.

    Hi OP, any reviews of this model?

  • +4 votes

    I've historically looked to Metabox (clevo) laptops for more affordable gaming and performance laptops, but it looks like other larger manufacturers have become more competitive over time. ie recently posted deals.

    Was very happy with my first laptop purchased 6 years ago. I have had some issues with second laptop I purchased (Prime-S-P950EP) in 2018. Screen had a hardware issue and a fan had an issue. Screen was fixed under warranty but unfortunately fan issue occurred just outside warranty.

    It's convenient that Windows 10 is optional and you can save on that, but I'll be more open to other brands like MSI or ASUS for my next laptop.

      My clevo chassis destroyed it self. The screen pulled itself off! Was ok but it quickly overheated during gaming sessions, even when not using an external monitor. Unfortunately laptops are simply not optimal for gaming just yet

    • +2 votes

      Wow, I guess clevo must have gone downhill over the past few years or something? I got a P170SM (maybe 7 years ago?) and it was incredible compared to the competition. No soldered Ram/CPU/GPU/SSD, everything was user servicable / upgradable. It did run pretty hot when gaming, but that was just the nature of the 4700mq / 780m. It still did better with thermals than any of the competition. It was bulky, ugly, heavy and battery life was a joke (kept it running if u knocked out the power cord at least :)) but it was a DTR, not an ultrabook :)

      having said all that tho, as happy as we were with it, we have gone the complete opposite direction now and went with a lenovo yoga slim 7 which is everything the metabox was not. Awesome battery life, great display and very portable. im sure there are plenty of options these days that fall between the 2

        DanielP2 - The P170 is one hell of a sturdy machine.
        Believe it or not it was this model (well actually the one before it, the P170EM) that was my first Metabox purchase and on the back of it I started Kong Computers and became a Metabox reseller. I loved the upgrade-ability of the brand. I am still using this laptop today. In fact I'm writing this message on it right now. 8.5 years old. I'll just keep using it until it stops working. It still runs fast for all of my office and Kong duties with the i7-3740QM CPU. I finally moved to Windows 10 last year as well. I just don't game on it anymore as it has the GTX680.
        My son (about 9 at the time) in the first year of having the laptop dropped the laptop down the stairs, He started bawling his eyes out thinking he killed the laptop.
        We opened the lid and the screen was fine and it turned on again, all good :)

          I killed my one by being lazy and not replacing the TIM the entire time we owned it. During gaming the fans were spinning up to 100% and temps were hitting 90c+. One day it crashed and the screen was full of artifacting. After that the screen was covered in red and green dots on the desktop as soon as windows loads. They went away when gaming, but it was horrible to use for web browsing or anything else. I reinstalled windows, redid the thermal paste (which fixed my high temps) but the damage was done. Not sure if I killed the igp on the CPU or the video card.

      I'm pretty happy with my clevo P950-ep but it's a bit of a thin and light toaster with a terrible software control station. But still fair for the price I paid. The hardware has mostly been good, chassis is not high end but serviceable except for the very flexible screen that ends up with keyboard imprints.

      •  

        Yeah I'm overall still happy with mine too. I like the balance between weight/portability and power. Having seen some of the deals recently though, there's some great value in other brands, even Dell.

        •  

          Yes, and you can get so much more for so much less now than a few years ago (but that's always the way with technology). My girlfriend has a cheaper Dell G3 with the same CPU/GPU and it's cooling system seems a bit better.

          If I can afford it I'll probably try to go for a better built laptop next time, but if not, Clevo or MSI all the way.

    Good to see the option of not paying the Windows Tax on a new laptop.

    Are drivers supplied if no O/S is selected?

    • +1 vote

      I got mine from Metabox without an OS, and as I recall it shipped with an unactivated Windows 10 install. There was a driver CD included….this was late last year.

      Probably like when you build a pc?

    • +1 vote

      Yes via CD/DVD but also available to download on their website.

    • +2 votes

      Yes they give you a DVD with the drivers, it's pretty old school as their laptops don't have a DVD drive anymore :)
      We recommend that you download the latest driver pack here https://www.metabox.com.au/drivers.asp
      Just put it onto a USB and install after you have installed the OS.

      Ew Acer

      •  

        Haha so true. Everytime I see Acer I just think of bad build quality. Everytime I see HP I think of overheating and getting your hands toasted.

    I purchased a Metabox this year with slightly higher specs and I have happy with it so far, the main thing that swayed me that way was the thermal efficiency / cooling capability's.

    One of the first things you see people complain about with a gaming laptop from the well known brands (Dell lol etc) is over heating issues which in turn throttle performance and/or get uncomfortable to use. I have not had any noticeable heating issues as of yet, the fans do crank up quite a bit but that's expected.

    At this stage I can recommended a Metabox, which was an upgrade from an older MSI GE62 2qf Apache Pro.

  •  

    I regret buying Metabox. Build quality is bad. Software support bad. No warranty and return when there is issue. I fully spec out a desktop CPU laptop. BSOD out of the box. Can't even overclock the upgraded RAM I paid. Sh!tabox.
    Get a known brand like ASUS or Acer. Hell, even DELL has better support.

      I can confirm that the model of the screen for the Prime-S AMOLED is the 4K Samsung ATNA56WR06
