    EUROCOM Shark 4 - Affordable and Powerful Gaming Machine

    EUROCOM Shark 4 Review

    Verdict

    The Shark 4 excels at providing excellent accessibility with a high quality accurate display, removable optical drive, and an unexpected SIM slot for 4G connectivity. The latter feature is what really separates the Shark 4 from other gaming notebooks, so users who know they can make use of it should definitely consider the Eurocom over other thin gaming notebooks. Even if users aren't interested in UMTS/HSPA+ connectivity, the base of the Shark 4 is stronger than the Lenovo Y50 and Asus G501 for a better sense of longevity, so there are still incentives in favor of Eurocom. The multiple storage bays only add to its advantages.

    Notable downsides include its larger size, heavier weight, weaker lid, lack of RAID, and no dedicated Macro keys or subwoofer. Turbo Boost is also weaker than expected as the system is unable to maintain its maximum boost under synthetic stress. An upgradeable CPU or GPU would have been fantastic to really set the Shark 4 apart against other mainstream gaming notebooks, but users will have to make due with the GTX 960M as there are no other options.

    Ultimately, the Shark 4 feels like a perfect middle-road solution between ultrathin gaming notebooks and much larger, thicker gaming notebooks.
