Excellent product and service delivery
I ordered a metabox laptop online. The site was easy to navigate. It was easy to select the laptop suitable to meet my needs. . I am very satisfied with laptop I selected, it meets all my needs. The laptop was of high quality, and well priced. I would highly recommend this online service
Speed and grace
Metabox was recommended to me as an option for my much needed update. I am extremely satisfied with the product I ended up ordering. Navigating through the store and products was very easy and ensured that all options were covered [do you need/want it or not] before the pay point.
I also needed to change the delivery address very late in the process...... seamlessly sorted out.
A HUGE thank you to Metabox and your team.
I've been meaning to get a new laptop for some time but the number of options out made me put it off. Doing it with Metabox meant I could choose exactly what I wanted in only a few minutes. Assembly and delivery were very quick and when I emailed them they responded straight away. And the laptop is great! Will definitely use them again.
Another great Purchase
I Purchased a Metabox Flo L140MU-i7 for my sun in May 2021 , this is the 2nd unit we have purchased and both times service and delivery has been excellent , exceeding expectations . the Flo is great we will buy again ,I am now sugesting Metabox to my business associates
Excellent Quality, Performance and Value
Laptop arrived on time, good quality keyboard. Excellent performance processor and GPU. It is very good value for money product and very good service support.
A fantastic laptop - great bang for buck! (Prime S)
I bought the Prime S and I'm very happy with it. The battery life is reasonable (though impossible to get the "up to 9hrs" advertised while actually using the device. The graphics exceeded my expectations and the 144hz screen makes using the laptop buttery smooth. The keyboard is great to type on and the trackpad is smooth.
The only shortfall this laptop has is the audio quality, the speakers are terrible (a lot of distortion even at low volume) but I use headphones so it doesn't bother me.
Metabox Edge Ryzon 7 review ... works really well for me
I bought a Metabox Edge NL50RU-R7 in early Jan 2021. Half the 8 CPUs, all the 16GB SSD and half the 1TB disk are dedicated to the boot Windows 10 environment. The other half of the resources are committed to a Ubuntu 20.04 VM on top of VMware.
I am an architect, software developer and QA tester for www.pcp.io and most work is done on the Linux VM.
To date I am really happy with the Metabox hardware ... it has a solid feel, performs really well and has been 100% reliable.
My only "con" is the touchpad which seems to be super sensitive and I've not found a way to dampen it down and avoid accidental "mouse" clicks.
this is a great build for using at work with revit and cad
I've used Metabox before and so i knew my way around the shop. both my personal laptop and work laptops were easy to put together using this system
Metabox Flo, i7 Model Review
I've been in possession of this Flo for a few months now and I can happily say I haven't loved a computer so much in a long time. It's a beautiful machine and absurdly light, yet has no sense of fragility about it. The i7 processor ( i7-1165G7) has no trouble at all keeping up with me when developing software and the integrated graphics handle Civilization VI without breaking a sweat. This thing is cool and quiet, effortlessly sits on my lap without burning my thighs and rarely spins the fans up loud enough to be a nuisance. Battery life, while...obviously not the 30 hours quoted, is huge. It will easily last the full day - and I mean full day, not just working day. I love not having to worry about finding a charger. Now I should mention that I have loaded this machine with an additional 32GB RAM bringing the total to 40GB. This asymmetric setup means that I am missing out on dual-channel speed, but I favour the capacity (16GB is not enough for me) and the unrivalled portability that the Flo offers. Fortunately I can honestly say I have not felt this machine to be sluggish. Another minor gripe I have is with the arrow key arrangement and the lack of dedicated Home/End keys. Easily fixed with an external keyboard when sitting at a desk, not so easily fixed when mobile. Despite it's tolerable shortcomings, I love this machine to bits. It absolutely excels in terms of portability, performance and value. I love Metabox's upgrade policy; you want to install a new NVMe drive? Go ahead, warranty is still good (and this unit has room for two.) When I am looking for my next laptop, Metabox will be the first place I look.
Very good build quality. Extremely quick
Very happy with my purchase so far. Installing the drivers was easy and once it was all installed the laptop runs very well.

Love the design really enjoy the power
The online store was super easy to put in the parts that I wanted, there were heaps of options so that I could choose what I wanted. The build quality and performance from the laptop I chose is outstanding.
Very satisfied with my Metabox laptop.
I was recommended Metabox by a friend who is a very experienced IT professional.
I thought I was too late for the Black Friday sale but found that Metabox had extended it by a week. Great!
Their site made it very easy to select a basic configuration that met my budget and needs. I was then able to add custom hardware and software, again based on my budget and needs.
At the time, several items I wanted were offered at substantial discounts, so I found I afford to add a few extra things to my set up.
I really liked the fact that Windows 10 could...
its very good and would recommend to anyone thinking about it it was very much worth the money however wish the battery lasted longer as I use it for school too and it doesn't last the whole day.
could have been better
Build quality not at par compared to the pricing could have been better .external designing needs improvement too as compaed to other gaming laptop brands
Great Laptop, exactly as described.
Metabox had a great range of products available, and was very simple to customise.
My work laptop now handles better than my home PC!
One small gripe - it would have been better if it was made explicit that the laptop motherboard only accepted UEFI drive configurations. I tried to install and boot up with a pre-configured MBT-format SSD, and it took far too long to work out what the issue was. But a GPR install later and everything was smooth sailing.
Questions & Answers
Will adding a second Hard drive myself void the warrenty?
Has anyone bought the Prime Ai (Ryzen CPU, typically 3700X or 3900), what is the overall performance, thermal etc?
Having owned a Prime-V 17 inch with RTX 2070/I7-9750H for a week now, I would absolutely look into the Prime Ai, as prior to buying i would have definitely opted to get a Ryzen processor but there was little available at the time as new models were still proliferating, most on offer were 15 inch only and the deal offered for the Prime-V was just too good to resist. The new generation AMD CPU's are a step above the latest from Intel. From what i've heard, not only are they faster, they generate less heat from reduced power consumption. Having said that, the thermal's on my machine are fantastic, haven't seen either the CPU or GPU pass 68 degrees and that's with a game and multiple background applications running at the same time, albeit that is in quiet mode with CPU power limited. I haven't even bothered to try putting it in G-Sync mode and upping the power levels yet as the performance is already a quantum leap from what i had previously .
I would highly recommend a cooling pad if you are concerned, because even not turned on it's providing significantly increased air flow over a flat bench.
Hey Tim, I have just purchased the Prime-Ai (NH58AF) with the 3900X & RTX 2070 specs.
Laptop is completely overkill, even for video editing and 3D work. I highly recommend this laptop.
high specs at decent price is impressive. but what about cooling ? Alpha x and prime S , which one has better cooling .
Prime-S has better cooling, more heat pipes and an extra fan, although both use vapor chamber technology. Check out Jarrodtech's in-depth reviews of the Alpha-X and Prime-S models on youtube. However, the Alpha-X doesn't require the cooling capacity of the Prime-S as it's limited to less power hungry cards like the RTX 2060 so internal temperatures will be comparable for both at the end of the day, if anything Prime-S is likely to still operate a little warmer, especially in higher end configurations.
