    laptops are crap no matter the technology, its a dead investment. better to go with the same idea but use actual desktop pc parts and hide them in the desk. here is a good example im actually in the process of building this by using my own computer. very cost effective because you can make the design for the desk and go to a hardware store and they will cut the material for you leaving you to put screws and angle brackets here and there and done! easy peasy for around 50 dollars in total with the advantage of full desktop cpu, full graphics card, 14cm height cpu cooler cant ask for more. almost forgot and it can fold (20cm folded thickness)

    This is nothing new, but the price and upgradeability of a laptop is prohibitive for most.

  • Charlike Mike Reagent

    Even cleaner is Samsung Galaxy phone + DeX and, again, only 2 cables - one to a hub and from the hub to the monitor.
    It's freaking insane setup. And the future is really that way and Qualcomm/ARM be the leader. We just need a bit better processing power. Current Snapdragon 855 supports up to 16GB RAM which will be enough in most of the cases.

    Linus mentions egpu:
    Wait, so we're now only a few hundred bucks away from buying a full desktop and avoid all the BS with buying an egpu enclosure, a hub to connect all docs to it, possiblew connectivity issues with the egpu not being detected. etc etc... deskyops are sooo cheap nowadays you might as well buy one and give your laptop less wear and tear, especially if you spent 2000+ on it so you can game/work away from your home.... just saying

      cuz he wants the cleanest! With a regular laptop, 1 cable for power, 1 cable for display out, 1 cable for monitor power, 1 cable for a USB hub, 1 ethernet cable. Takes time to connect all of that.

    Someone reply me plz, but unless you really need a crap ton of monitors, you could just use the laptop's onboard I/O for external hard drives and sd cards and it would still be that clean if not cleaner right?

      @Theethanet ok then guess that dock isn't completely necessary if enoigh IO is on the laptop. Thanks then.

    As a hardcore gamer I would never replace my pc with a laptop. You can get one of the best pc on the market for the same price and it will out perform any laptop on the market even with extended graphics card, there is no competition what so ever. This isnt gonna cut it in the long run. Laptops are literally getting strangulated with its tiny fans smashed in to the table. Its not designed for gaming. but it is fancypantcy . Just not optimal for gaming at the best settings etc, probably work for casual scrubs and rich people.
