  • Linus enjoy good products yet he takes sponsorships from the “in house designed” watch that is designed in house from a chinese company, where mvmt just buys them with branding agreements for $8 and sells them for $300. Mvmt is a scam to say the least, litterally look up any video on it, they are cheap crap chinese watches at exorbitant markups, get a citizen or a seiko or whatever for the price to actually get a decent quality watch.

  • Idk about your message on the last half, I still think 1080p is way better for laptops, especially if you want it to be able to run games natively for more than a few years.

  • I love Linus but hate the bullshit he says for the sake of the narrative of his videos. What else could Apple call their high-end products apart from 'Pro'? For years they've been using 'Air' for their "low-end" products and 'Pro' for the upgraded versions of them. iPad Air vs. iPad Pro, for example. If you're gonna criticize Apple for their naming scheme give them a recommendation, and also mention the fact that Apple has been pretty much the only laptop manufacturer to use 16:10 1440p QHD panels on their laptops.

  • Am I the only person who's thinking of it more like allowing 4k for Windows & productivity with 120hz 1080p for gaming (you don't need any complicated scaling for these resolutions)? So essentially for me it means I don't need to choose between having a good display for gaming, and a good display for productivity.

  • I bought a razer 15 4k @60 hz OLED. because I wanted windows and apps at 4k, but I game at 1920 * 1080 what makes me upset though, is that the screen can't do 120 hz @ FHD. by the way is it hard to build in a radio receiver for gaming mice?

  • Honestly most of the reasons you listed as potential negatives are the reasons I'm seriously considering this machine (or at least the 2020 version with an 8-core CPU - when it's back in stock). The centered keyboard (which means no numpad) is an absolute must-have. An off-centered keyboard is an ergonomic nightmare. To my knowledge, this is the only high-performance 17" laptop available with a centered keyboard. (Just for the record, even my desktop workstation's mechanical keyboard has no numpad - I haven't missed it a bit.) So this laptop is on my shortlist of potential 17" machines - a list of one. If I bought one of these, it would be for remote-remote work. The 17" screen and 4k resolution would be nowhere near as good as my 3x 30" desktop setup, but with some windowing utilities and taking advantage of Windows' multiple desktops feature, I think it could be functional enough for C++/UE4 development. The one big drawback is the cost. In addition to the $3,700 base price, I'd need to install another 2-4TB NVME SSD to host work files, and upgrade it to 64GB of RAM. All in, I expect my total investment - without tax - would be around $4,500. What I would gain is having an adequate machine to do work on the road. Those 3x 30" monitors, connected to my 3990X, 256GB RAM, Titan fixed workstation make for a great/perhaps even optimal workflow/environment, but it's not mobile.

  • Amen, 17" needs 1440p, not 4K or 1080p. My Alienware 17R5 has a 2560x1440 at 144Hz. Perfect.

  • Why is nowone talking about how the temperatures he measured were in Celsius ? that clearly cant be right? he said 80 degress celsius was comfortable and 68 degress celsius is cool? jesus 80 degrees Celsius is nearly 200 degrees Fahrenheit . i think that would literally be burning whatever it was touching.

  • So agree with the 1440p being the sweet-spot. Only LG gram 17 provides that resolution but thanks to it's 15w CPU, especially the 10th gen with 1.3 Ghz base clock, it delivers ABYSMAL performance. :-(

  • The gaming laptop manufactures just need their own buzzword resolution, like 1440 GAMING REZ, or SUPER-RESOLUTION 1440, then they'll sell to average consumers and gamers who actually look up what it means and say, "wow 1440p, about time someone did it."
