Kobalt G150 (Clevo P150HM with Geforce GTX485M) Gaming Laptop Review

Rating: 9.0.

KitGuru has looked at a number of impressive gaming laptops over the past few months including the bespoke Cryo Mercia.  Like Cryo, Kobalt Computers is a relatively small operation who cater for the enthusiast end of the market.  Their laptop range starts at £859 inc. VAT with the budget friendly GS510 however many of their laptops cost well over £1000 inc. VAT.

Today we are going to look at one of their most popular laptops, the G150 – offering a good compromise between price and performance.  It comes in around the middle of their range, starting at £1199 inc. VAT with a nVidia GeForce GTX 460M graphics card.  The model we have for review, though, is a little more pricey as it boasts the nVidia GeForce GTX 485M graphics card, an option which commands £320 extra.

Like Cryo, Kobalt builds their entire laptop range using Clevo Chassis which are favored by many gamers across the world.  The G150 is built on Clevo’s P150HM chassis which is used by a few other notebooks such as the Sager NP8150 which is available in the US.

    Thumbs down Don’t buy from Kobalt Computers
    No communications, no contact, plenty excuses, but no laptop and after 10 weeks time has run out. I cannot stress enough how disappointed I am with the level of customer service and disregard shown. After paying a large sum for a premium product and to receive nothing but excuses and empty promises this is totally unacceptable.

    And it’s not like I can review the product as I cot nowhere near one, the review and pictures look good, but what’s the use of that when you’re 3K out of pocket… Keep well clear of these cowboys…

    An Alienware would have been better than this…
