Customer Reviews

17.3" 3XS MVW-20 Thunderbolt 4K is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Monstrously powerful machine I've had this for a few weeks now - bought in order to be able to edit 4K video while on the road - and it's pretty incredible. Only thing is that when rendering video - fans run on full for extended periods of time. I think when the CPU is being pushed, this is just inherent in any laptop where circuitry is essentially crammed into a small space - but it is loud! It's not cheap - and you must purchase with the undertanding that you're not buying a Macbook Air - this is a super heavy machine - but as far as build quality, quality of the screen, customisable components, and SCAN's helpful guidance while making decisions - I highly recommend this machine or most likely any of its siblings in the 3XS super-laptop range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent desktop replacement I configured this was quite high spec options in order to make a decently future-proof desktop replacement. I wasn't sure what compromises I would find over my desktop PC, but I'm pleased to say there are none; this laptop is better in every way than my last PC, which was itself no slouch! I bought my MVW-20 some months ago, so I've had plenty of time to evaluate it. I love it just as much as I did on day one. Despite the availability of gaming and audio workstation builds here at Scan, this seemed like the best option for me. I wanted a powerful machine for heavy audio sequencing work, a good GPU for games in my downtime, and a 4k screen for Ableton/Photoshop software (to allow for lots of breakout sub-windows, and to minimise the need for scrolling). I went for a i7700k, a 1TB 960 Evo SSD, a storage HDD and a GTX 1070. (NB - The option has changed since I bought it, and you have to take the GTX 1080 now.) Positives: Superfast for my creative software, and handles everything I throw at it easily. I can't stress enough what a joy it is for me to use this machine every day: to have so much power in such a small system. Lots of USB2/USB3 ports, and of course the Thunderbolt/USB-C too. This is my first 4k screen, and I love the options I have now to see more on the screen at once (compared to my 1440p monitor). I wasn't expecting to run games in 4k, but it's surprising how many can run very well in the native resolution with high settings. Now that the system sells with a 1080 only, it must be significantly more capable. When I do have to turn down the resolution to 1080p in order to stay above 60fps, I can almost always max out every setting. In-built speaker is decently loud, even with the lid closed. Negatives: The only real downside is one I expected, which is common to Clevo chassis builds: low battery time. Don't think of this laptop as a "work anywhere" machine. It's better to think of it as a highly portable powerhouse. I now have this extremely powerful PC that I can put in a shoulder bag and take on a plane, and that's plenty for me. It'll run for about 2.5 hours off the mains, so you'll either need a serious powerbank for true unplugged operation on the move or you'll need to be getting to a place where you can plug in. A more minor downside is that it's weighty for a laptop, but if you want a lighter machine then you'll have to sacrifice processing power. I am more than happy with my decision to place the machine's ability as a higher priority than its weight! The smallest nitpick of all is that the screen is nice, but there's a tiny bit of light bleed on some points at the edges when the screen is showing pure blackness. It's not a big deal at all, and you never notice it in normal use.

It says it supports up to 64GB RAM

Hi your spec says it supports up to 64GB RAM but there is no option on the configuration to choose this - the max you can select is 32GB?
