Spec choices are great with a hefty price tag of course but 4K at 15.6inch? :confused:

Quite an achievement, as upgradable laptops are becoming increasingly harder to find. But what the battery life on that thing? 1h?

Shhh!!! Be quiet lads!

Here we see the Eurocom F5 in its natural enviorment! It seems to be sleeping on a tree branch.

The F5 feeds on cool air mostly and is sometimes being domesticated by young students of higher class.

I've had this laptop for about 2 months now and love it. I have it with the i7 6700 and 1070. My final price for it was $1320usd with 10% off student discount.
I'll install the 7700k when they release the unlocked Bios that they said they would, the ETA was around Christmas, the new ETA is now 1-2 weeks.

I wish they had the 120hz screen when I ordered it but the stock screen is "ok".

I would have prefered 1080p screen with 120Hz instead of the useless 4K screen.
But that's just me...

That's a pretty clever feature. That way you when you take your $1,500 laptop out in the backyard and put it in a tree you can close the top down to protect the keyboard from tree sap. :p

If they (or any other company) make an upgradable laptop with an AMD CPU or APU one day, I'll be more than glad to buy it.

About the 4K resolution... I'd rather have a full HD screen, too.
