I posted that one before, but in the wrong forum (deal discussion)
When you compare it to other P650SE laptops from other store, remember to include in the price an IPS display and thermal paste upgrade. Also remember that some don't come with the TPM 2.0 chip which is useful (like the Sagers)
About the unknown "Eurocom" brand - it's just a Clevo rebranding, like many others stores/brands (XoticPC Sager, OriginPC, Prostar, power notebooks, MySN.de, One,de, and many more). They are well known and have many reviews over the web

Seems like you can reduce the price even further by choose the sub-$55 WiFi option, which in not an AC option.
For $1200 it's currently the cheapest with an IPS display. You also get a TPM 2.0 module and an upgraded Diamond 24 thermal paste included in the price, which is nice.
It's more cost effective than GTX 860M options, or GTX 965M, even if a 965M was selling for $1000 so I think such a price will continue to be competitive in the near future too.
* A note : better buy it with CAD and not USD, as the price is lower that way
