Eurocom has also released its most powerful 13.3-inch customizable gaming laptop, the Eurocom M3. The Eurocom M3 is powered by an Intel Core i7 Haswell Quad-Core processor, can be configured up to Intel Core i7-4930MX Extreme, and is paired with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M graphics processor. It also features 1 SATA plus two mSATA storage and a nice Full HD 1920×1080 IPS display with a matte finish. Check out more details below.
Under the hood of the Eurocom M3 is an HM 87 express chipset that fully supports the latest 4th generation Intel Haswell processors. Users have the option to choose from an Intel Core i7-4700MQ, i7-4800MQ, i7-4900MQ, or even an Intel Mobile Extreme Core i7-4930MX. Lowest and default processor is the Core i7-4700MQ. The processor is paired with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M with 2GB DDR5 memory running at 1000MHz and 768 CUDA Cores running at 850MHz. Since the Intel Haswell processor has a built-in a graphics processor, users can use the Intel Graphics HD 4600 when not in gaming to save power. Battery life can last up to 5 hours thanks to the Optimus 2.0 technology.
The CPU and GPU are paired with an 8GB DDR3 memory (default) and can be upgraded up to 16GB. The Eurocom M3 also has lots of storage options and with RAID capabilities. There are two mSATA available, and by default it is not populated, plus one SATA port for the primary drive. In the mSATA (1st and 2nd) you can install SSD from 120GB up to 480GB capacity. Whereas in the main SATA you can install 750GB 72000 RPM up to 1TB hybrid drive, or 100GB up to 960GB SSD. By default a Seagate Momentus ST9750420AS 750GB 7200RPM is installed.
The Eurocom M3 also features a nice 13.3-inch IPS matte-finish display with a Full HD resolution of 1920×1080. It has a 178-degree viewing angle and a 700:1 contrast ratio. It also features a silver light illuminated keyboard, and believe it or not, but this gaming machine weighs only 2Kg and is only 1.2 inches thick.
The Eurocom M3 also features an integrated Trusted Platform Module 1.2 that ensures that information like keys, passwords, and digital certificates stored are made more secure from software attacks and physical theft.
The Eurocom M3 has a starting price of $1,100 and can go up to $5,000+ especially if you installed some really serious CPU and SSDs under its hood. Check out the rest of the specifications below.

If you have read the previous articles, the Eurocom M3 is surprisingly similar to the PC EON13-S and Sager NP7330 (Clevo W230ST) 13-inch gaming laptops. They have the same set of specifications and they are also customizable. I guess to generic one is the Clevo W230ST since it is the cheaper one.
