Very happy with the purchase, it was bought as a replacement for a Dell Precision 7730 mobile workstation for use with Revit & Naviswork.
I've been using it to run highly detailed models with little to no loss of performance. The speed and handling matches the Dell laptop easily.
The only issue i'm having is the wireless connection. On the Dell the transfer rates were alot higher than the wireless adapter is achieving on the Nova. I'm having to plug in an ethernet cable to reach the speeds I need.
Apart from that, spec is high, performance is good and the price was right. Looking around other sites the spec and price I received from PCSpecialist beat them all.

Thanks for posting, very glad you're (mostly) happy. :)

Have you checked for a more recent driver for the wireless card? How bad are the data transfer rates on wireless? Are you using the 5GHz band, it's less susceptible to interference? We're happy to help you investigate this, you don't want to put up with something that's not performing. :)

Just to chime in - I've got the same laptop and i've noticed the bluetooth (which is the same card) is absolutely atrocious. I use an Xbox One controller with bluetooth on the odd occasion I can't be bothered to have this on my lap (weird I know,) and the range is abyssmal. It's a small price to pay and is easily rectified by getting a USB adapter but I'd definitely try updating the drivers if I were you. Have a look at clevo's website:


The model is "NH5xAFx" in the drop-down.

I can get close to 1.5 hours if just browsing, with minimum brightness, no keyboard LED and with heavy underclock and undervolt on the CPU :ROFLMAO: (PS: I have a Ryzen 3 3100)

It's a little over 1% drop in battery every minute.

I'll take the ryzen 7 so I can hope for 30 Min of battery i think

Around 45min, I guess :)

My main concern is that the battery is located quite close to the CPU, so I think it might get a bit hot and decrease its life span quickly. But at least it is easily replaceable and a new one is around £50 from PCS
