    I disagree with the sentiment around resolution as a general statement, but I totally get that it makes sense in the context of gaming.

    Isn't anything over 144hz useless? How can a graphics card support refresh rates that high? I guess it comes down to personal preference but I don't like track pads.

    I don't understand the point of a 240hz display if the graphics can't push 240 FPS. Why not go with a 144hz display with the 2080 MaxQ. My 1080 Ti can barely push out 144 FPS, usually between 90 and 144 FPS depending on the game, at 1440p in more recent titles. I'd imagine that an RTX 2080 MaxQ paired with a 144hz display would be the sweet spot, and would likely be cheaper. Or am I just completely wrong? Waht would be the benefits aside from just a smooth desktop experience?

    I don't think that Full HD is enough for 15 or 17 inch displays, 2K would be better. I miss clear resolution which is on smartphones(I have S7 edge).

    You can get 240hz on clevo / euro com / sager and so on distributers laptops since 240hz displays came out... Not necisarily all of them butt they had the option available

    Reason I don't buy gaming laptop because of the battery, and I still use my 4 yrs old free given Thinkpad laptop that still run at 7 hrs of battery use. Desktop PC is sufficient even in budget rigs, just focus on monitor and graphic card. Be practical.

  • Micromation

    Too slim - seem like will overheat and either throttle horribly or be factory limited like most of these thin gaming laptops. Seriously just make it few mm thicker and maybe even adopt Dell's solution with pushing radiator completely outside on the back behind the screen and fit more efficient fans in and make some space inside for airflow. Besides, there's no reason for a laptop that will be constantly plugged to be needlessly thin. It ain't 11'' ultra light Starbucks machine for hipsters. Also no Thunderbolt 3 which is quite handy and is the only saving grace for laptops which suffer from limited connectivity by design. That's a no from me and a BIG NO NO given how they're gonna price this one (based on their other laptops).

    Linus's face continually keeps moving more and more past the point where he regrets being an obvious sell-out (and is fully aware that he and we both know it).

  • vilicles
    vilicles 6 days ago

    Ideally, I'd want a 1440p panel with a higher refresh rate. 4K doesn't make sense when you're sitting a 10" from the screen. Good stuff. Just get rid of that enormous chin on the bezel and you're good!

    too bad they doesn't have that screen protector for the samsung galaxy s9... cause i would have bought it since i work as a welder and i am out and working and the risk of dropping my phone is pretty high, i haven done that yet tho but it would be real nice to have that extra layer of protection for the screen.

    why do these laptop makers insist on sticking the bloody touch pad on the left almost under the wasd keys???? my hand is constantly resting on it. all gamers will know what im on about if you use a gaming laptop. why don't they put it on the right? it pisses me off linus. :-(

  • DegenerateProduction

    So 240hz, is that even competitively worth it since the last I knew of servers they only used tic rates up to 60 that were viable or is this strictly for offline competition?

  • Tom Blake
    Tom Blake 6 days ago

    I couldn't DISAGREE with Linus more in this video. The laptop has an RTX 2080 which is a great 4K card, but it can't do 4K because the screen doesn't have it. That is a waste to me. Not everyone games competitively, there are those of us that only play single player games and appreciate better visuals and an RTX 2080 that cannot take advantage of 4K is USELESS for those players. The laptop might as well have a GTX 1060! Sure you could plug the laptop into an external 4K monitor/display but you will not have that 4K on the go if you wanted it.

    You could have this on a desktop ages ago with a Nvidia 3DVision Driver setting that let the backlight strobe at 120hz while in 2D mode. The Text was perfectly readable while doing all kinds of shit. I always wonderes why this strobe effect was not on by default
