Review Schenker XMG P500 PRO Gaming Notebook


Extreme Gaming? The XMG P500 Pro from Schenker wants to impress w

Excellent application and gaming performance; Stable and plain case with matt surfaces; Very good display quality; Good input devices; Many interface options

Works great for me.


I don't understand how this can be classified as Very complicated Sprint controlled. If the Sprint setup screen comes up, simply press cancel. I have only seen it when it is rebooted. Mine is very friendly. Just Google how to bypass the Sprint...

Works fine!


Tablet works great. Just need to work around (cancel) the Sprint set up menu, that is if you don't have Sprint. Other wise the tablet works as advertised. Great Value at $149
