Review: Eurocom M4 Gaming Laptop
Regardless, my wife (who is predominantly a PC gamer) loved every minute of playing on the Eurocom M4. Between the blazing fast loading speeds, the great graphics and the easy and responsive keyboard (more on that below,) this is bliss for a gamer who wants to break their desktop shackles. I admit though, that it takes very little to impress me nowadays, since everything is better than my current Ultrabook. Stats are king, so let’s take a look at how the benchmarks stack up. Here is a 3D Mark run on this machine in comparison to some of its contemporaries. As you can see, even at a stock, non-upgraded configuration you are ready for action.
I was very critical of the keyboard on the HP Omen when I reviewed it. The awkward layout made it hard for me to really wrap my head around it being my personal long term choice. The Eurocom M4 is a big step up in comparison. The keyboard is extremely responsive and is laid out pretty well. I’m a very lazy typist who tends to drag and linger his fingers a fair bit. As a result, I’ve been very prone in the past to having my laptop and PC’s keyboards frequently switch language rolls on me because I end up lingering over the SHIFT keys subconsciously. The M4 responded to my typing so quickly that this was never an issue
It's a professional's laptop with a gamer's heart
I’d say the main charm in the Eurocom M4 lays in one simple fact: its presentation. Eurocom has basically disguised an amazing gaming laptop in office professional housing. For the price you’re paying, you are getting the hardware and its performance capabilities. I’m in my 30s now. I don’t need my laptop to make me feel like I’m standing at a rave watching trippy colour schemes dancing with the music. There’s no slippery (or in the case of my wife’s gaming laptop borderline sticky) surfaced casing. Not at all. What you see is what you get with Eurocom, and I’m all for this. This is a laptop that you could take anywhere without drawing attention to yourself and could easily take it into a business meeting for presentations and then out to the courtyard for lunch and some NBA 2K15. That’s an aspect of this laptop that I really like and I would definitely recommend this to the university crowd looking for a one stop shop for business and pleasure.

EUROCOM M4 review - Editors Choice Award Winner!
The Eurocom M4 is one of the notebooks we’re able to give an Editor’s Choice award without much second thought.
The M4 otherwise excels in just about every area. It has great gaming performance as configured, a beautiful QHD+ (3200×1800) display, good touchpad, backlit keyboard, solid quality, and gets about 6 hours of battery life under light usage. The M4 is a little chunky compared to a standard 13.3-inch notebook, but this isn’t an ordinary 13.3-inch notebook.
Our review unit was $1,466 as configured up from a starting price of $953; a more practical configuration with a less-powerful Core i7-4700MQ processor and a non-Pro Windows operating system would come in closer to $1,200. We think it’s a good value at this price point considering what’s inside. Overall we’re happy to recommend the Eurocom M4 especially to gamers and extend it our Editor’s Choice.
-Excellent gaming performance
-Good keyboard and touchpad
-Solid design and quality
-Decent battery life

Test: 13,3palcový herní notebook Eurocom M4 3200×1800 IPS displejem
Eurocom Monster 4.0 je po hardwarové stránce vynikající notebook. Nabízí vysoký výkon CPU, velmi slušný výkon GPU (na takto malý stroj pak výkon výborný), námi testovaná konfigurace kombinovala rychlé SSD a velký HDD, plus všechna myslitelná rozhraní.
Naprosto vynikající záležitostí je použitý typ LCD, který nabízí obrovské rozlišení, skvělé barvy, odezvu i výborný maximální jas.

The 3k screen looks great…
In general, the screen is excellent and that Ultra HD video content out there on the web looks great. Its beauty is aided by the fact that its running on an IPS panel, so colors look vibrant and accurate.
It has a pixel density of 276 pixels per inch (PPI)
Powering our Eurocom M4 is Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 860M. The card runs on the company’s new Maxwell architecture and features a 1,029 MHz GPU clock, 2,500 MHz memory clock, and has 2 GB of GDDR5 VRAM. …it manages to blow away our zero point’s older midrange 765M by roughly 30-70 percent in our graphics benchmarks, which is really impressive . For 1080p gaming, its great.
Inside the relatively small 13.2x9.9x1.28-inch chassis is an Intel quad core 3 GHz Core i7-4930MX, which can turbo up to 3.9 GHz, and 16 GB of DDR3-1866 RAM. At $1096, the CPU itself accounts for almost half the price of the notebook.
In the battery department, the M4 comes with a 6 cell lithium ion, which lasted over 3.5 hours in our video rundown test. Rounding out the chassis, we have a competent backlit keyboard and trackpad with two dedicated buttons.
In general, the M4 has a lot going for it.
Super-sharp resolution; beautiful screen; good overall performance; relatively light and portable

EUROCOM M4 Review
Pros: Sharp QHD screen; Great performance; Highly configurable
The Verdict: The Eurocom M4 is a highly configurable and fast 13-inch gaming notebook in a light design, but it suffers from heat, noise and short battery life.
With the M4, Eurocom has its sights set squarely on mobile gamers. This 13-inch system weighs just more than 4 pounds, but it can be packed with the latest Core i7 processor and Nvidia 860 graphics. Starting at $1,054 ($3,837 as configured), the M4's chassis also allows for a huge amount of customization, which many gamers will appreciate.
The almost military-style construction -- combined with the flat, black exterior and gunmetal-gray interior
Measuring 13.2 x 9.98 x 1.28 inches and weighing 4.4 pounds, the M4 is smaller and lighter than the Alienware 14's 6.6-pound 13.2 x 10.2 x 1.57-1.62-inch case
One of the strengths of the M4 is the number of available configurations. Our test system, priced at $3,837, came with an Intel Core i7-4940MX CPU, an Nvidia GeForce 860M GPU with 2GB of video ram and dual 1TB Samsung Evo mSATA SSDs with a 1TB 7200 rpm Hitachi HDD. The display is a 3200 x 1800p QHD panel with professional calibration.
A bare-bones system costs only $954 and comes with a 1920 x 1080p display; a 2.5-GHz Intel Core i5-4200M CPU; a 500GB, 7,200-rpm Hitachi HDD; and the same 2GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 860M graphics card.
Eurocom managed to squeeze some impressive hardware into a 13-inch gaming laptop. The M4 absolutely screams, offering smooth frame rates on even the latest titles. We also like the sharp QHD screen, even if the color accuracy isn't great.
However, if you want a powerful and portable gaming rig with more configuration options and a lower starting price, the Eurocom M4 is a speedster worth considering.
