    lmao I still remember that obnoxious start up sound. One of my group member for a college assignment has one of those RoG laptop,. During one of our final presentation, the start up sound was so loud that it literally scares the crap out of my professor. We're at the edge of getting a F that day.

    Hi Linus, How are you? I need your suggestion to buy a budget laptop under 1000/1200 usd. I am a civil engineer and my need of PC is mostly for using computational modeling softwares in structural engineering (like Etabs, Staad pro etc.) and Hydrodynamic Modeling simulation softwares (like Delft 3D, MIKE etc.). Which will be the best budget laptop in the price range 1000/1200usd with best performance? Thanks in Advance linus. Make great and helpful videos as you do always.- Rahi

    If you turn off G-sync and turn the fps from 144 to 60, lower the screen brightness, and go on airplane mode. (for instance if you're actually on a airplane and want to watch a movie or play a game that integrated graphics can play like old school RTS for me.Make all global setting use the integrated graphics. And lower the FPS from 144 to 60, (they'll be automatically 144 when G-sync keeps it lower which is why you're not seeing much difference, yes G-sync is off but now you're running so many more frames.And if you simply want to stream netflix or something i've easily gotten over 2 and a half hours which is not great but far better than these reviewers.. Anyways the only time I'd really not have an option to plug it in is... well never saying for about 50 bucks you can get a 90WH external and suddenly you have a massive battery supply and you can play a whole 5 hour flight.Especially with some undervolting.

  • Md Shahadat Hosen

    what mini gaming pcs do you recommend thatis similar to asus rog or msi trident? im lookingfor one that is around 500 to 600 dollars?

  • Evelyn Alvarez

    Is the keyboard programmable?

  • BuyOneGetOne

    Cost $2100, roughly $1700 worth of tech over priced but still a very impressive machine

  • Ismail Adiputra

    I would prefer bigger battery, ditch the SATA HDD/SSD, add an extra M.2 slot for extra SSD. That would make it perfect imo.

  • Brian Williams

    Keyboard review at 5:50 male hands typing then at 5:56 female hands typing?? Lol

  • Adam Mujtaba


  • aMaZe Anrap

  • Raed Zameer

    Can you please compare ASUS Zephyrus GM501 with MSI GS65 SLEATH THIN

  • TheReal Flash

  • Angel Dubon

    Every time he says but you take a shot

  • Whatever

    What if you make a laptop with removable bottom and little legs that can be extended so it can stand on them when you need extra cooling?


    2:06 i guess most of us would prefer zipping the backpack up before leaving for school...

  • T2s ballsack in Rockstars Ass

    I9 2 1080tis 1tb hard drive and 64gb ram in my laptop is all I need

  • Rejor111

    Man. Seeing something like this keeps me thinking about what I should do. Get a Lenovo thinkpad for my work related tasks and build a desktop pc for gaming? Or just buy a gaming laptop (like the Asus, or an MSI Stealth) and use that for both work and play?So hard to decide.
