The Eluktronics Mech-15 G3R is a premium-priced gaming laptop with strong performance underpinned by an Intel i7 processor and Nvidia RTX 3070 Ti graphics card. It's designed for high-end gaming and other resource-intensive tasks such as 3D rendering and engineering applications. This laptop features a high refresh rate display for smooth visuals and a large battery capacity, though this does affect its portability due to increased weight. Its build quality is sturdy, and it includes features beneficial for gamers, such as a high-quality backlit keyboard and advanced cooling system. You will also find a high-resolution screen, with good color accuracy and a non-touch IPS panel. Battery life, however, is moderate, so frequent access to a power source is advisable if used for extended periods of intense gaming or heavy workload. Give Feedback

Aaron Ritchie | September 2022
"Everything considered, the XMG Neo 15 (Mech-15 G3R) with RTX 3070 Ti is a great gaming performer. The combination of the Ti graphics card with the new Intel 12th gen CPU is enough to go toe-to-toe, and even slightly pull ahead of the RTX 3080 in most titles, though on games with Ray-Tracing enabled, particularly with graphics set to the maximum and on higher resolutions, the additional VRAM of the RTX 3080 makes a big impact, and the 8GB RTX 3070 Ti machine simply can’t compete, even with the more powerful processor."
