PROSTAR Clevo Gaming Laptop N850HK1 15.6″ FHD IPS Review
We have another great mid ranged budget gaming laptop in our midst, this time from Prostar. The Clevo gaming laptop features a Full High Definition 15.6 inch LED screen with a matte finish and has some great display output options, namely an HDMI port, and 2 x Mini DisplayPort 1.2 ports. This means that gamers can expect some multiple display madness options in their future if they decide to pair off with this fantastic budget gaming laptop option.
The engine room is crammed to the rafters with an impressive Intel Core i7-7700HQ that is clocked at 2.8 when at stock frequencies, and can be boosted via the Max Turbo Frequency feature up to a toasty 3.8GHz. This is a screamer of a CPU to have inside a gaming laptop, and its 6MB of Smart Cache will keep things moving along smoothly. On the graphical front we have a powerful NVidia GeForce 1050Ti with 4GB of GDDR5 VRAM, which is more than enough for some medium to high detail graphical settings, and will allow for some fun gaming action when you are out and about and need a quick gaming fix.
System RAM is made up of a single 8GB DDR4 DIMM, clocked at a delectable 2400MHz for massive performance gains over the previous DDR3 architecture that is found in some other gaming laptops. Storage is handled by a speedy, albeit relatively small, 120GB M.2 SSD drive, which means that your gaming load times are about to get a lot shorter, which is an excellent thing!
There is a wireless card as well as Bluetooth for your connectivity options, and 1 x USB 2.0 for legacy devices, and 2 x USB 3.0 type A ports, and 1 x USB 3.0 type C port. Extra features include a full RGB programmable backlit keyboard as well as a 2.0M FHD webcam. Software that is preloaded on this particular system is none other than Windows 10 Home, and the unit ships with a 1-year warranty.
This is a great budget gaming laptop, and it has some solid hardware within its stylish confines. There is a real gaming aesthetic to this unit, and the full RGB backlit keyboard will tell anyone who sees it that you are all about the gaming side of life.
