    I really hope that "Next Gen GPU Update coming in Q2 2021" isn't really a thing. Because if that's the case, I'm definitely getting effed in the rear by Asus for adopting this thing at the beginning of the month.

    Important to note : These kinds of laptops employ a technology called "NVIDIA Optimus", where the laptop uses the iGPU as an output to the display, with the GPU serving as a compute and graphics accelerator unit only when it is needed, such as in games and GPU rendering. This conserves battery by only using the GPU if needed. But this makes it a pain to set up these laptops' graphics in Linux.

    Yeah the dock alone costs more than what you could build a 3070 desktop for and double that for the laptop as well, why not get a really good dedicated laptop with a 3060 and 4k oled and a 3070 desktop for the same price and be just as mobile

    Hey man like your videos just letting you know I got a G15 last week from BestBuy with the RTX3070. After I did all the windows updates/bios updates it would get stuck on a black screen and the activity light would also stay on. The only way to fix this was removing the battery (what a pain) I tried trouble shooting it but no fix. After taking it back to bestbuy the geek squad guy told me it would take a month to fix. So I had to return it and now I’m waiting for it to come back in stock. ):

    im looking to buy my first gaming laptop with my stim check, i want to spend about 1 grand of it, i dont care about the keyboard, speakers, touchpad (ill be using separate ones), fan noise or build quality (cause im going to be careful with it and use a big fan underneath anyways) i just want it to be VR capable and possibly have a bigger screen then normal, some decent space and a good battery and gc and cpu, it can have only 8gb ram as long as its upgradable later for down the road to add another 8. i was wondering if you had a suggestion knowing all that or anyone else for that matter? thanks for the vid.

    Thunderbolt, eh? I'm guessing that's still a wee bit above what I usually need/pay. I'd like it if you made a vid about how viable Thunderbolt is today because last time I looked it wasn't very viable (in the sense that you had a very small amount of options, to the extent that you had to chose between thunderbolt or some other functions) as well as how far gaming mouse industry is from changing to USB-C (or at least include an adapter), considering how the laptop industry seems to exclude the A more and more.

    An email i just sent to dell Case number 101******** It has been a couple of months working on this case. First it was a simple gpu issue, then in spite of knowing that I had to go through all of the company processes that took days of calling back for that to be verified. Fair enough you want to ensure its a hardware problem before sending out replacements that makes sense. A few weeks pass while dell is finding a replacement part to send to a technician. Eventually the technician actually contacts me after quite some time of customer service telling me that the technician tried to call and left a message. Non of which there is evidence for on my end. We set a time and date for the repair to take place. The technician comes and asks me what the issue is. I think "he should know, I guess he's just double checking". So I explain there's an issue with the gpu. He tells me that that's odd because he's been sent a motherboard. I think "oh God. This man has never worked on a laptop in the past 10 years... maybe its just a small blind spot" eventually the repairs begin. He tugs on half of the battery not knowing that its separated into two parts both of which have screws. I think "wow he didn't even look at a video tear down of this laptop...I've done more research than a dell sanctioned technician" he has me hold what I believe to be some kind of audio daughter board rather than unplugging it. Loses some screws doesn't order the screws meaning the safety screws could end up anywhere...ect. At the end the base plate won't go on and the back lighting doesn't work. They say that they'll order replacements. Later I discover that it won't charge. I ask for a refund or replacement. Days later I'm told replacements are impossible so refund will be done. I send my laptop off I ask a few questions as to time span... no response. A touch of background on me: one of my jobs at a company I formally held work at was fixing servers both software and hardware. Dell servers in fact. I didn't quite understand why when the warning read "please contact customer care" we would try to fix it or just throw it away if we were unable. I now understand. Another part of my job was software and graphic development... that I needed that laptop for... I no longer work for that company. So can you A. Answer my questions in a timely manner and or B. give me job as your technicians are less knowledgeable and more destructive to devices than I have ever been. So I might be an improvement.
