In this case it is purely branding. Several of the major Botique vendors use the same Clevo notebooks. Which is quite humorous when you start seeing reviews pop up. "Another Clevo model xxx based machine in our labs..." The differences amounting to what video card that vendor felt like slapping in there, what CPU, ram, and hard drives they decided were worth sticking in there. Then of course, the price tag the slap on it. Origin, Sager, AVADirect, iBuyPower, CyberPower, and countless others use Clevo notebooks for thier machines. In the end, Clevo is much like the Funai of the Laptop world. They make everybody else machine, and never actually have thier own name slapped on it.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"
