Remember the crazy X80r Gaming laptop deal @ Novatech from a while ago? well, they've started it again... only now there are far more choices.From ultra portable range to quad core DTR laptop, novatech is offering massive discount to you for limited time . From 332 pounds up to £1378.85, one for every pocket I suppose.

Two high end system had massive cut as well:

15.4 inch X70 MV with 9800m GPU, used to be about 1300 quid, now only 918 pounds
17 inch quad core X90R, used to cost nearly 2k at the start of the week, is on sale for less than 1400 pounds.
But hurry, the stock aren't gonna to last.




Edit:

X70 and X90 are both gone, though it took longer than I expected to be honest. If I didn't just receive a M1730, and if the X90 had WUXGA screen, I'd have bought it instantly... *sign*

Oh well, I hope the lucky soul who bought it will enjoy it, its awesome setup. *drool*

Thanks, will have a look.

is there anywhere that has a bit more detailed specs for these laptops?

Ultra cold

What specs that are given point towards under-specced & over-priced laptops from unknown manufacturers (in the cases of the ones I looked at).

Not a fan of buying laptops from small manufacturers.

Would rather pay for a little more for one from a recognised brand. Especially in these difficult times, with companies going bust and warranties becoming useless.

They seem very shy about telling us any details of the machines on offer!!!

With the obvious lack of specification, from what I CAN see... Not a fantastic deal. Though it's on par with the equally poor Dell Outlet.

If you're in the market, I'd be pacient.

Good find anyway matey

I gotta agree, they ought to include screen res, along with other spec.

Many of the laptops are branded as "Novatech", i.e own-brand. Many Novatech laptops are based on Clevo chassis (clevo.com.tw/en/…asp), who have a very good name (and are branded by other companies - e.g. hexus.net/con…463, see the st atement at the end). Clevo parts are readily available, so as long as you are smart about the models you buy at Novatech, you shouldn't have any problems (even in the event the worst happens).

Not a big deal to some but from what I can see there is no operating system installed either.

no spec, something to hide???????????????????????

Careful with Novatech ... I've got one locally where I collect from ... if ever you have a problem with something they will not just swap it out with something else, they will want to keep it or send it for testing and repair.

/begin rant
I once bought a 24in1 card reader from them as I'd given my perfectly good working one that I'd got from 7dayshop to my mum. To save shipping costs (at the time with 7day) and not have to wait I ordered and collected from Novatech. Unfortunately every time I tried to use my standard CF card it wouldn't see it at all. Took it back to them hoping for an exchange ... they wanted to send it off for repair!! Serious! I complained that had I just gone down to PCworld and bought one for £3 more they would have changed it without question.
Eventually he came back and said someone authorised the exchange ... this time, I asked them to test it (with my CF card which I knew had pics on), to make sure the new one works before I travel home and find it also doesn't ... 30min later, he came back and said they couldnt get it to work and that its my CF card that is non-standard (b******ks) ... asked for a refund in that case. That took FOREVER to get me £6odd back, believe you me, not exaggerating here .... I watch the whole of Monsters Inc which they were showing on the plasma TV in the returns area ... no joke, man was I p****d off.
/end rant

I did put a review of the product and of my experience on their website ... obviously they never published it as I expected.

:oops:

BTW, I don't buy as much from Novatech since then ... I prefer to pay a little, only a little bit more, from bigger places knowing that if it has a problem I can easily exchange or refund.

i voted hot for this by accident GRrrrrr

If you're after an ultra portable (or something close) I recently bought an old refurbished Dell D400 off a BigPockets the other week. It's about 6 years old but for £140 ideal for my needs. When new it was around £1400 so decent quality. It came with XP Pro installed and licensed which I installed SP3 into. I upgraded to 1GB ram for £15 and 54G (from 11B) for £6 using ebay.

There's no proper specification, not a chance id buy any laptop from these, no matter how cheap.

im surprised....i had a problem with a card reader from them, the first melted, so did the second and i got a refund, tho they had no choice as this is well covered by the sale of goods act

i would be firm with them, the reading one is fine

would rather buy from novatech than some cowboy outfit like bigpockets

[FONT=Tahoma][SIZE=2]Are these unbranded laptops ? If they are than they should be about 40% cheaper than branded equivalents I would think ...[/SIZE][/FONT]

I've got nothing but praise for novatech..

Bought the x80r, was one of the last to grab the bargain of the century.

Unfortunately they'd ran out of processors, so rather than cancelling my order, they gave me a free upgrade on the processor to get the laptop to me quicker!!

Best. Company. Ever!!!

I think they've improved a lot lately customer care wise, they're really helpful on the forums and listen to feedback.

i bought 40 viglens a few years back, they were rebadged clevo2700s and werent great by any stretch. needless to say id avoid clevos again!

ive bought from novatech before (at work) and they were fine.

Novatech laptops should be fine, they're not that small a company. If you go away from the clearance sale and into the normal laptop range they do have full specs for the whole range... on the Specifications tab. Other than that, there is a risk to the warranty as they might go under I suppose, but what with massive brands like Woolworths and the banking industry falling that could be said about most companies - none are invunerable.

It's a clearance sale though, so their older stock, and some must have expired already - the X90r is only available at £2k with an OS, and the only machine in the main range with any marked discount is the X80 MV which has dropped around £100...
That said I actually think they're quite good value anyway and use more up-to-date parts than for example Dell and Alienware.

I do wonder why an "unbranded" (Novatech/Clevo branded) laptop should be 40% cheaper than a branded product though... it should be a higher-end product than many, not turned around in the same mass-produced way, and yet here is still competitive... Take an example like Tesco Value, that doesn't make it a premium one, whereas your local tailor may well have little or no brand but still provide a bespoke luxury product. Whilst I don't know about the full range, the X80 for example is a "channel" custom built laptop, so Novatech actually build it from the Clevo base - something a little different from a cheap/unbranded boxed-product being purely sold on.

...don't forget Novatech are on Quidco too so you can save another 3% there...
Why was this link posted with tradedoubler? So the Op gets everyones cut?

I have to say I've got my last few laptops from Novatech, Don't look at branding when you get a laptop, look at components. I got one in the past that was also sold by Fujitsu Seimens for £300 more in Comet. Most branded HP, Fujitsu etc laptops are made by Uniwill.

The last one I got was an Alpha R Pro which I purchased about 18 months ago. It has a 15.4inch screen with an Intel T7700 2.4ghz Core2Duo processor. Very fast machine for £599.00 back then. Didn't come with Windows in that price, but I purchased MacOSX 10.5 for £60 and installed it using Darwin!!!! Worked out to be a very cheap Mac Book Pro that retailed for £1800.00 at the time. Also, purchased Novatech's 2 year warranty for £28.00 which was very cheap compared to warranty's from other manufactures. DVD Writer broke down, unscrewed the drive, sent it back to Novatech and they replaced it with a better one.
