Illegear is selling the 17" of the Ryzen laptops...and they have options for the bigger battery as well.

Still waiting to see if there's any NDP promo from AS

If no Covid can consider. Esp for those who frequently go JB for petrol/groceries.

This is the actual desktop replacement as it's using desktop CPUS which you can upgrade in the future. The 15R-Lite is more portable.

Don't expect good battery life from either of them.



Same build and chassis with the highest spec 15R

Maybe they found out those that bought it to play game will have it plugged in. So no point putting in a bigger battery.

But yeah they could have it as an option.

SADLY, FORGE is the ONLY Clevo-based build left selling at Aftershock PC, and their increasing focus on Desktop and Office PC builds and Tongfang Laptop Chassis makes me think that Aftershock PC is beginning to lose its way pandering to mainstream customers, like those "SOHAIporeans"who cannot differentiate between SSD and HDD, or between Single-Channel and Dual-Channel RAM.

To compare, competing Clevo PC71DF2 chassis at a slightly higher price, gives you i7-10875H, RTX2070 Super Max-Q (something that AMD Renoir-H based FP6 motherboard CANNOT support due to lane allocation issues), Thunderbolt 3 port and (surprise!) 73WHr battery as STANDARD configuration.

Haiz...... Looks like my NOVA dream is getting further and further away with each passing month already, Aftershock is apparently getting more and more like mainstream kind of company I escaped from back in 2016......

The 17R-Lite seems to be the better value for NDP promo compared to the 15R-Lite, there's $25 off and you get better thermal paste and a bigger screen.

fyi. great singapore sale online is on 9sept. nt sure if aftershock will have same, or better, then.

iirc uni starts after ndp. if want to get now, do consider the turnaround time for when u order to the time u receive.

poly maybe can still make it before sem2 opens

not spending that money for such a tiny battery.
the problem is theres literally no other decent looking 17" inch laptop with Ryzen.
