Most gaming notebooks lack customisability at the time of purchase, offering purchasers high-end specifications which some users are unlikely to desire. While dual NVMe SSDs in RAID may sound appealing, in practice many of us don't want to pay for such an extravagant hardware configuration, instead preferring to make use of a single SSD in our systems with room for future upgrades.  

Some of us what to define precisely what is in our systems, which is something that is extremely difficult in the notebook market, where it is almost impossible for an average consumer to create a custom notebook. 

This niche is where PC Specialist comes into the fray, selling notebooks with an extensive range of potential configurations, allowing users to define their systems specifications, storage and other custom options. Do you want your system to ship without an OS, with a minimal storage configuration with future storage upgradability in mind? What PC Specialist offers is the closest thing that consumers can get to building a fully custom gaming notebook.

PC Specialist has officially released their new REciol II series of gaming notebooks, offering Intel's latest hex-core mobile processors with Nvidia graphics to deliver high levels of gaming performance while providing an ultra-slim form factor (less than 20mm thick) and mass of less than 2KG.

To get the specifications out of the way, PC Specialist's Recoil II will ship with an Intel 6-core/12-thread i7-8750H CPU, which offers a base clock speed of 2.6GHz and a boost/Tubo clock speed of 4.3GHz alongside either a 4GB GTX 1050 Ti or a 6GB GTX 1060 GPU. The notebook will also ship with between 4GB and 32GB of 2133MHz or 2400MHz memory. 

The Recoil II will use a Brushed Aluminium chassis which is 19mm thick and weighs 2kg, making this notebook both slim and lightweight, despite the high-end hardware that this notebook contains.

PC Specialist has also designed the cooling system of this notebook to exhaust hot air through the rear and sides of the Recoil II, taking advantage of the multi-directional nature of the system's two 90mm blower fans. The whole system will be cooled by three heatpipes and is designed to remain cool and quiet under load.

One thing to note is that the PC Specialist Recoil II has a built-in Mechanical keyboard, using keys with short actuation points to provide a satisfying mechanical feel while maintaining the notebook's slim form factor. No squishy membrane keys on this notebook! 

The keyboard on this system will also offer N-key rollover and RGB LED illumination, with the Recoil II also sporting a front LED bar for additional lighting. Purchasers can decide which keyboard layout they prefer, whether it be UK, US, Franch, German or most other major European keyboard layouts. 

Connectivity wise, the Recoil II sports two USB 3.1 ports, a single USB 2.0 port a single USB Type-C port and SD Card Reader. Like most modern notebooks the Recoil II has a built-in Gigabit Ethernet port as well as two Mini-DisplayPorts and one HDMI output for external displays.   

Below are the hardware specifications of PC Specialist's upcoming Recoil II system offering users a 15.6 1080p screen, space for two M.2 NVMe SSDs, space for a 7mm SATA HDD/SSD and up to 32GB of 2400MHz DDR4 memory.
