    Unless you wanna dive into ray traced grames (all 4 of them), I think the 1660Ti devices are sweet spot this year. Whatchu think?

      I'm planning to buy a gaming laptop.. These are the specifications I am looking for... Which one would be the best one without heating issues?

      I7 9750H,

      16gb dual channel  ram (8+8),

      1TB HDD and 256gb ssd,

      GTX 1660 Ti  OR RTX 2060

      15 inch display with a minimum of 120 hz refresh rate

      These are the options that I have in my budget.. Which one would you suggest?

      1) HP OMEN 15

      2) ASUS ROG G531GU

      3) DELL G5

      4) Lenovo legion y540

      5) Acer predator helios 300 2019

      @Khánh Nguyễn thanks I ain't that serious a gamer I do it for stress relief,and I also want a strong laptop for programming purposes as well.

      @Nitin Bhattacharyya Is it the one with 144hz screen? Then in my opinion, its a very good choice. U cant hardly find one with 144hz screen and good specs around this price range. Keep in mind, 144hz is extremely good for gaming. Especially if ur playiny FPS games. Around this price range, i can only see 60hz screen so thats a plus for helios 300. 16gb of ram, 1060gb, CPU i7 8gen is more than enough to play the lastest games on high or med settings.The only bad thing about the helios 300 is the weight and it seems a little bulky. Some people dont like the design since it has a red keyboard which is too common in gaming laptops. Overall, its probaly the best budget gaming laptop in the market rn. I was planning to buy it but in the video, he did mention if ur buying a new laptop get then 16gen GPU. I think the 16gen GPU will be worth it and future-proof for gaming. They can be pricey tho but i think the helios 300 is a good buy if ur one a budget and dont do a lot intensive, serious gaming. Hope this can help you to decide.

    I have a nephew who is about to start studying games design. As he will not be playing any particular game what do you recommend from the slim line up and from the chunky gaming laptops between the RTX's, 1070 onwards and 1660 Ti? I am assuming you may have changed your mind by now as 2020 approaches. Thanks.

          I would like to play most games in Full HD. I dont need superb resolution. I was raised in 320x240 times, so i dont give a damn about resolution. Besides I would like to play mainly old games. The new ones , like I said, are good in Full HD for me. What should I choose?

          • Bartosz Sz.
            Bartosz Sz.  2 weeks back

            i checked prices in my country. 1660 are at the same price level as 1070. 1070s are still pricey, but they are much older.

          ok look i know i should just buy a desktop, but school and work just wouldnt allow me to stay put like that. so laptop is all my choice. i really want to play cyberpunk on pc when it launches, will a 1660 enabled laptop do the job yall think?

                                I just picked up a refurbished Acer Predator Triton 700 for $1799 here in Canada. It's rocking a 1080 MQ with 32 gigs or Ram. Great value I think. Couldn't pass it up.

                                        the RTX laptops really are not worth it indeed, the only one maybe is RTX 2080, even that runs RTX stuff ok but not great. so all the other ones 2070 and 2060 is even worse, and as more time passes games get more needy specially with RTX. so technically its better to wait for 3000 series gpu laptops. atm better get 1070 or 1660 ti that are really good price to performance machines

                                                    I’m thinking of getting an msi gs65 with 1070 max q. I’m getting a laptop not a desktop because I move between houses multiple times in a week and I think it would be better to get one nice laptop rather than two lower end desktops. Anybody have any thoughts?

                                                                I have spent much time in researching and reviewing pros and cons and just seeing the results of gaming laptops over time I have come to the logical conclusion that gaming laptops are a waste of money and make no sense. For example take buy refurbished sections and so on ..they are are all littered with laptops from all ends of the spectrum. From expensive to mid-range to cheap laptops, it's a literal grave yard of gaming laptops desperate to be sold due to buyer's remorse and defective and repaired returns . Also I haven't even gotten into all the issues that come with gaming laptops and none !! Absolutely none of them are with out issues. From alienware 17s heating issues to MSI gs75 poor build quality , to the tin audios of them all or the poor hinge issues or the backlight bleed they all suffer from. Let's not forget the throttling. They all have issues. Why do people by these things ? They are so desperate to game they can't wait to get home? Who really games at Starbucks 😂. And as people drop thousands of dollars to feel like they have the best only to realize later " wtf did I do?" Lol I even saw a video of some idiot who poured 10,000 I to an Alienware area 51m ...really ?? Wtf for? To game outside of home ? Because if it was a desktop replacement why dump 10 grand when you can build a machine for a fraction of the cost smh. And as I see review after review it still amazes me how lost we can be when we don't think logically but let colors dazzle us only to wake up in regret. With these new thin laptops coming out that breaks and bend easy and over heat like hell we are better off burning our money.

                                                                                the idea is i'll run many virtual machines .. but for cybersecurity is 16gb ram enough ? and what about dual core, quad core ,6,8 ?
                                                                                also is it necessary to care about graphic cards for cybersecurity and computer engineering classes?

Straight to the point no beating around the bush I’ve learned a lot from him the past couple of weeks and so glad I came across this channel thank you.

                                                                                      I've watched loads of his videos and i'm still torn...

                                                                                      I want to get a reasonably thin and light laptop that is relatively "future proofed" that I can also use for general productivity. At least 1 USB A and an ethernet port are must haves, not too fussed about a thunderbolt port although if it has one that's great of course. About 6 hours of battery life would be sufficient. Mainly, a durable laptop is what I need. I will look after it but I don't want a flimsy keyboard or something, willing to pay extra for better build quality. A 1080p screen will be adequate at 60hz, I don't need a super good screen. 32GB RAM would definitely be ideal, but 16GB would be adequate so long as I could upgrade it later. Storage is a very key point. 2TB+ would be ideal, no less than 1TB. Would prefer more storage with a HDD as oppose to the speed of an SSD, however if I can have both then that's really great. Standard membrane keyboard will do and a half decent large-ish trackpad. Speaker quality and camera quality aren't priorities at all. RGB would be nice but not essential.

                                                                                      If anyone could give me any advice on what to purchase that would be great :)
