Introduction


From the Eurocom website:
Eurocom is based on the philosophy of pushing boundaries, of offering customers exactly what they need and require in a mobile computer. Eurocom custom builds each and every Notebook, Laptop, Mobile Workstation and Mobile Server to the exact requirements of each customer. Thus, ensuring every customer gets exactly what they desire and don't pay for anything they don't need.

From the beginning of the purchase process the customer is in control, they can choose the laptop they desire and then configure that system with the internal components they need. Eurocom then puts each system through a series of stress tests before going through a final check inspection before being signed off by the head technician and sent to the customer.

Eurocom addresses all user needs by providing notebooks spanning the range from entry-level to high-end technology. All Eurocom products are engineered for highest quality, best performance, long-term stability and serviceability. State-of-the-art technology is coupled with superior customer service to generate an excellent overall experience.

Founded way back in 1989, Eurocom is a laptop manufacturer that has earned a few accolades since then. They started out by releasing the Eurocom 2100 and have ever since continued to innovate and build customized laptops. Moving on to the present day, they not only offer laptops but mobile servers and even work stations. Having grown in size and scope, they have found a niche for themselves in the North American market.

Today, I will be looking at their Eurocom Sky X9E3. It is a SLI and VR ready ultra-high-performance system. The model I will be looking at is packed to the gills with SLI NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1080 graphics cards, an Intel i7-7700k, and a Samsung NVMe 960 Pro SSD. With some serious specifications, it looks to be a portable gaming system many only dream about. All that remains is to see whether it lives up to expectations.
