Eluktronics N850HK1 Pro Premium Gaming Laptop
The Eluktronics N850HK1 Pro Premium Gaming Laptop comes from a relatively unknown US brand. And at first, we were very skeptical about a laptop from them. Just as anyone would be with a new entrant in the market. But the specifications on this laptop were mind-blowing. We would assume a new entrant would start at the lowest end of the market to build confidence. But Eluktronics seemed to have been more interested in the premium laptop arena. They sort of went for the jugular of the entry-level gaming rigs which is a market with plenty of competition. So far they’ve run a tight ship resulting in great laptop builds. And we also hope that will remain the same over the coming months/years. The Eluktronics N850HK1 Pro laptop we review isn’t one to brag about gaming DNA, but it complements that with performance.
The Eluktronics N850HK1 Pro laptop features a number of great features and packs a professional look to go with. You won’t be embarrassed walking around with it and it also won’t let you down performance wise. We recommend it for power users in graphic arts and gamers. As well as for just anyone who wants a future-minded laptop offered at a competitive price.
DESIGN AND FEATURES
From a distance, nothing about the Eluktronics N850HK1 Pro laptop is flashy or gaudy. We loved the modest but elegant design found here, nothing like the MSI or ROG we’re used to. Looking at the specs you realize much attention was placed on the functionality rather than the outside, but that’s particularly for the N-series. And that’s no deal breaker especially because the body still is impressive and doesn’t scream gaming. The display is as impressive as any other competition out there. It sports a 17.3″ IPS Full HD (1920 x 1080) Matte screen.
As far as ports go, the Eluktronics N850HK1 Pro is equipped with 2 USB 3.0 Ports, 1 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.1 Gen 2 port (Type C) to future proof this device and get ahead of the curve. There is an HDMI (with HDCP) for connections to additional monitor just like other premium laptops.
On performance cycles, the Eluktronics N850HK1 Pro Premium laptop brags about some pretty strong features. They are a great arsenal capable of handling the challenge of triple-A games. Thanks to its Intel Core i7 7700HQ Quad Core (2.8-3.8GHz TurboBoost, 6MB L3 Cache), the Eluktronics N850HK1 has an above the par clock speed. The processor coupled with 16GB DDR4 RAM and 512 SSD storage make it a good choice for power users who want to stay productive. Additionally, for those people who 512 SSD storage might not be enough to cover their needs, there is one empty RAM slot (One 2.5” 7mm HDD / SSD) for extra space installation.
As for gaming performance, it brags of the 4GB GDDR5 VRAM GeForce GTX 1050 Ti (Notebook) which is the beast especially when it comes to handling games with 1080p. This new GPU was released in January 2017 and works with Pascal architecture to make gameplay at Full HD resolution possible.
