    lols (and "Smh") at all these "titles" or vids and reviews and articles ALL MISLEADING and SPREADING OF ignorant MISINFORMATION. "WALMART" DOES NOT, i repeat does NOT "MAKE" ANYTHING. \ nothing! zilch, zero, nada! m'kay! for one thing. Secondly, these PCs would be better called "eSports Arena" computers, not "Walmart computers". BUT EVEN STILL "E-sports arena" did not MAKE anything on the PCs either!..NOT EVEN THE CASE. ok! And yes, again i say.. "Walmart" does not MAKE anything,..not even their so-called "house brands/store-brands" or aka "private-label" brands. There is no "Walmart factory" making things, ok. lol. Walmart does NOT even "Make" their "Great Value" or "Equate" or "Mainstays" - (to name a few), products! Does anybody have any brains? lol?! .. "Walmart" is in the "Retail" business, or, might as well say "RE-SELL" business. Yes, they're basically a "middle-man" ..they buy stuff and re-sell it, etc! They dont "make/manufacture/produce" anything. nothing. ***Unless someone can prove me wrong on that, ..but i highly doubt you can ........

    34:13 - "There is no tribe" in buying apple products!? Now I definitely know you're lying your ass off!
    People join tribes because it makes them feel safe, and strong. So no Linus, you're so fucking wrong in this one.
    There is a tribe when you support a politician, or an ideology. There is even a tribe when you follow a sports team, or a celebrity.
    And there is DEFINITELY a FUCKING TRIBE in iphone users! So stop making a fool out of yourself on camera!
    It's moronic, and I agree with you that they are just products. But this thing, this collective of people who support each other, even when wrong, ESPECIALLY when wrong, it is real! It is undeniable! It happens! So just accept it, and stop lying to yourself, and us.

    Are you serious? So there are just as many iOS enthusiasts as Android enthusiasts? lol.
    I dont know about that one. I know you guys heard of XDA Developers, right? XDA is the biggest website for mobile phone modding and tweaking as a whole, and what are the most active forums on XDA? Android Devices. lol. iOS device forums on XDA are barely active, they barely get any traffic.
    Enthusiasts just dont go out and blindly buy a newly released device just because its new and costs $2,000. Im an enthusiast, and i refuse to buy any phone that i cant modify to my liking. I would gladly pay $2,000 for a phone, as long as its worth my time.
    Most, if not all die hard Apple fans would buy horse shit if it had an apple logo on it. Apple enthusiasts are not enthusiasts, they just love to blow money on products that under perform. They love blowing money on products that they dont even own, even after they spend all that money, since apple doesnt let you modify or tweak anything. You don't own apple products, you lease them.
    Android is the complete opposite.

    Walmart is scaming people.If you bought a computer from them , look if you realy got the product you bought.
    You buy better products and getting worse products. Think employes changing the pc inside the boxes so they pay less for themself or friends and family and get the better products if you want to know whats happening.

    This was posted less than a month ago as I watch it. Less than 2 hours ago I watched a vid of a guy taking apart a Walmart OP1 computer. He was NOT happy. He paid $2200+ for an OP3, and did not get it. He realized after cracking the case and taking the parts out to look at the labels that he got the OP1, NOT the OP 3 he'd pay for. That was around a $700 difference. From what I could tell, they MAY have just sent him the wrong machine. He got hold of someone on the phone and got an RMA, and they said they'd send him an OP3, once they received back the OP1. I can't wait to see if he does a follow up vid.

    Lets invent a phone that when the battery starts to go bad, you can simply remove a small cover on the back, take out the old battery and insert a brand new one. That would be amazing. I wonder if it's ever been done before. The phone manufacturer could even be the one to sell you the new replacement batteries! Phone makers, will you join me in trying this new and crazy idea?!

    I agree with Andrew Rainville. You guys need to make a whole video on reviewing Walmart’s OP line. Maybe with Fortnite, Minecraft, etc. and some basic functions with the OS. Maybe check out cpu/GPUs usage while playing games and the FPS, along with some speed test against other PCs.

    I'm giving Walmart the benefit of the doubt, they may legit be trying, who knows, they are using Gigabyte GPU's, and Gigabyte Motherboards, so........MAAAYYBE it won't be shit? I mean they are asking 1.4 grand for the baseline? and 1.4 grand can build a similarly speced pc? so.....Cautious Optimism?

    offset trackpad is so that your palms can rest on either side while you're typing. The thought being that your hand position will be offset too because of the numpad.

    I get why Apple added the Vega GPU option. The free Blackmagick DaVinci Resolve supports 2 GPUs on OSX (not on Windows), so just add the eGPU and you have a "workstation" in the studio/office to speed up workloads. Maybe you guys could do a test of the performance

    On Apple's throttling phones, if it was a planned strategy then how is that being misleading to the customer? Don't remember them banging on about that in their sales pitch on launch for the devices.

    # of Subscribers rarely determines a channels success and even for channels with massive subscriber amounts they tend to be the most vulnerable of channels.
    I personally feel this channel casts far to wide of a net but what do I know they're immensely popular.

    Android switching the volume rocker to control audio has been a godsend. Gone are the days of trying to adjust a paused youtube's sound and accidentally changing the ringtone volume. However, it does take a month to get used to, but now the swipe gestures and the volume rocker is second nature to me.

    the thought of even considering buying something that's been handled by an underpaid disgruntled 16 year old kid in a Wal-Mart warehouse is not very appealing. I mean seriously, if people actually saw the condition of packages when they arrive at a wal-mart store, or even after they've made it to the shelf in the back, they'd be terrified to by electronics there.

    OP laptops are made by Tongfang, not Clevo! They look good IMO. And the touchpads on some laptops are centered on the QWERTY section of the keyboard, probably to avoid accidental mouse input while typing.

    The off-center touch pad really makes no sense. Especially being off-center to the left. It would maybe make sense being off-center to the right since most people are right handed and that would be a little less reach you have to make to use the touch pad.

    Lol it just goes to show games journalism is just another department of marketing for companies if they get in trouble for leaking information about games (when they aren't under any agreements). Their job is to release information. Leaking a game is not something you should get in trouble for. Anyone who thinks that is just stupid. Imagine if that's how real news in the world worked.
