      @Stanley Scalf it WAS a 1400 laptop, but got rolled back to a 799 price. So now, it's got better bang per buck when compared to a similarly priced competition.

    I estimate this laptop takes about $380 to manufacture. So they have it marked up by about 4x and at the rollback price of $800, 'only' 2x.

    • jesper nytun
      jesper nytun 18 days ago

      If it's 400 dollars to manufacture 800 is a good price. 380 in parts and probably 50 dollars in Labor. Then wallmart buys it for 430. They also have a huge ass shop to keep up, and a bunch of staff to pay. I would say they would've earned like 20-30% when it was 800.

    I actually used the num pad on my MSI laptop all the time! I use music notation/production software and a lot of helpful shortcuts can be used with it. I'm also a band director, so a computer with a num pad is super useful when I'm writing in grades. I don't ever use it for gaming, though.

  • Michael Clark
    Michael Clark Month ago

    Linus, love your vids but just want to say something about the “why do laptops even have a numpad” comment. Mmo gamers like myself like using a mouse with the 12 button 3x4 side grid, and those buttons (not sure about others but I know at least the razer naga/triton, and corsair has one too) need to be bound to keys. When you already use your regular number and letter keys, those keys need to be bound to numpad, and then of course have numlock on to function. We don’t all just play fortnite and fps’s 😏

    Just make sure to get a cooling pad, sometimes it can get hot, though my old msi got way hotter.

    Listen here you numpad hater. I am writing this comment on my 110% mechanical keyboard and it's awesome. It's so much easier to just switch to a num pad whenever you have to type a lot of numbers or a long number and you don't wanna awkwardly do it with the top row numbers because no one can accurately and comfortably touch type those from the home row. Yes, I'm a "gamer." But it's not like gaming is literally all I ever do!

    • PkGam
      PkGam 2 months ago

      As a gamer, I use one for older games as their response time beats out the lag of HD screens have. As an example, you can connect a S/NES to an HDTV (even a CRT one), but the HD image processing takes too long (analog to digital conversion, upscaling, pixel response time, etc...) and throws off your timing. That lag is also why stuff like light gun games (Duck Hunt for instance) won't work on HD sets.
