Would you recommend the i7 or the i5? Are there any branded laptops in the market which I should get instead?
Most laptops are good buys for someone or other. Without knowing your reasons and preferences it's very difficult to say how suitable that laptop is for you.

It doesn't look like there's anything in the way of reviews for the Clevo N550RC chassis yet

Thank you for responding, It will be mainly used for personal use / self learning. Running VM's etc hence looking for something powerful enough which will not be outdated in couple of years time.
