  1. So just as a suggestion the MSI ps63 has an 8th gen i-7 with a 1650 graphics card it weighs very little and truly is a powerful thin and light. I recommend taking a look at it since it fills all of my needs as someone who plays games like destiny but also needs something sleek and formal for school/work

  2. 3-3.2ghz at over 90C°? Welp. My Razer Blade 15 boosts higher at 89C° ( to be fair, I won the silicone lottery and it runs at -150mv stable :] )

  3. It can only sustains 3.0 ~ 3.2 clock using a better cooling than the XPS(same clock range). Undervolt the CPU can brings the clock easily to 3.4 and above under heavy load. 9750H is just a rename of 8850H(2.6 base) which is just a higher base clock 8750H(2.2 base). Which means the 6 phase design is probably for 8 core CPU rather than "bring higher clock to the CPU".

  4. For anyone who lives in the UK, PCSpecialist has a Defiance 6 which has near-identical specs (that can be improved if desired) for £2000 to £2500. I'll recommend that over the Alienware laptop but, if you aren't in the UK, Alienware is still okay.

  5. Why worry about a bad quality entry level laptop when you can get an 8 year old thinkpad for the same price. If you run linux on it with an ssd (not like your doing much with an entry level laptop) you can get it to boot faster than some high end windows pcs.

  6. I have an idea, embed a graphics card accelerator to the charging brick, and make the charger USB-C, then you get improved gaming experience when plugged in, and a decent portable machine when on battery. What do you guys think?

  7. Essential ph-1 just came out with yet another update to Android 10 lol.
    No gaming laptop for me. Desktop yes, super silent cool and powerful. I have my so called gaming laptop, got it on the cheap, never use it. Acer Aspire E5-774G-582T 12gb ram, dedicated GPU, plays what i need.
