ThundeRobot ST-Pro Cool VR-Ready Laptop Late 2017!

ThundeRobot ST-Pro is a laptop that is VR ready! I bought my ASUS Predator 17x VR ready for around 3500 euro. Super pricy! But super worth it. But now a year later you can get amazing deals for way cheaper. This is both a good looking laptop and powerful. Let’s see what it packs inside.

Some main specs: Gaming Laptop, 15.6” IPS FHD 1920×1080 resolution display, GTX1060, Intel Core i7 7700HQ CPU, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD disk, VR ready, 2.5cm thickness, 6GB of GDDR5 memory and 1280 CUDA cores!

The first good thing to know with ThundeRobot ST-Pro is that the GPU GTX 1060 inside this machine performs better than both GTX 970M and GTX 980M mobile GPUs! 50% boost over GTX 970M and 10% over GTX 980M!

This computer will be great machine for these VR headsets: ThundeRobot VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and other high-end headsets. The processor is running on 7th gen kabylack platform with 4 cores, 14nm manufacturing process, 2.8GHz and can be boosted to 3.8GHz.

With a computer like this it’s important to have great power dissipation and this one comes with that for optimal gaming experience. The keyboard is full colour RGB backlight. You can tweak the colours!

The laptop is made in aluminium alloy material with a reinforced metal surface. It also has gone through various things like stringent stamping, anodizing and sand blasting to make it perform better and be durable!

The display has 160 degrees angle of view, 250 nits brightness, 700:1 contrast ratio and 25mm frequency response. Probably won’t be as vibrant as Galaxy S8 or iPhone X display but it’s probably decent for gaming!

The audio experience comes with Sound Blaster X-FI MB5 which has 5.1 stereo sound technology. Called the onkyo speakers. They are available on both left and right side of the laptop.

The I/O interface on ST-Pro can be good to know: three USB 3.1 ports (which is way faster than 3.0!), two Type-C ports, one HDMI port two Mini DisplayPorts, Audio Jack, RJ45, DC and Card reader 6-in-1 for standard cards.

I like how this laptop is slimmer than my fat ASUS Predator laptop. On the other hand my predator is 17 inch. 15 inch that this one has might be a little too small for many people.

GPD Cool Fashion Laptop!

GPD brand I have checked out their portable gaming machine in the past but they also have a mini laptop variant! Let’s take a look at it. It’s called the GPD Pocket. And it’s super small!

Main specs: Windows 10, Intel Atom x7-Z8750 processor quad-core clocked at 1.6GHz, Intel HD graphics, 8GB of RAM, 128GB hard disk memory, 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, 7 Inch screen size and 1920×1080 resolution.

First thing you will notice in GPD Pocket is 128GB is a lot and you can pack in a lot of multimedia files on that space! 8GB of RAM also excellent. I would prefer if it ran Windows 7 instead of Windows 10 because of the sloppyness of Microsoft’s latest OS.

The battery inside is a large 7000mAh battery. Battery can last around 5 hours in video play time which I find impressive. That’s almost 3 movies you can watch! This would usually mean massive if it just powered a simple Android phone! But now it’s powering Windows 10! So might not last as long as android would do. Because you run heavier apps with Windows 10 OS.

The back cover is made in nice aluminium material for a premium feel. Comes with speaker and mic. It weight only 0.5kg which is nice for a laptop. Also if you want you could install Ubuntu over here!

It’s great because it can fit inside your pocket. And comes with a full QWERTY keyboard. With an HDMI cable you can connect the gadget to a larger display for doing more serious work!

GPD Pocket does remind me about my MacBook Pro. It’s using a precise all-in-one body made with magnesium and alloy. Which means it looks like amazing craftsmanship! It also comes with really high ppi display over 300.

Ports on the laptop are: USB 3.0, Headset, micro HDMI, Type C! Overall a very impressive fashionable laptop. Perfect for late 2017 usage.
