  1. That sounds pretty reasonable. Only question is on compatibility. Do I have to be concerned with what add-in stick I use other than matching the DDR revision of SODIMM and the speed? Now that you mention it, I think I remember hearing about Intel doing that on the WAN show lol. The Zephyrus G14 and G15 are looking killer! Too bad there's no webcam, but there might be some sort of elegant solution to that. It's kind of weird that they offer so many skus and there isn't any way to make your own build. Maybe that's because of stock issues. If they made the Legion 5 with a better spec graphics card, it would be a great buy! Looks like I have some options now, and if nothing else it's a great starting point. Thank you!
  2. Sorry for my ignorance, but the field of laptops is just so much more convoluted to me than desktops and I just don't get it, there are too many features, too many skus and the like. And maybe there's stuff happening in the laptop world like new releases coming up where it would be best to hold off on a purchase, or maybe prices are going up in our current situation. This is all uncharted territory for me! I'm looking for a laptop that would hold strong for modeling (which isn't very intensive I guess), rendering, and maybe even some simulations. I don't think I need to go into 2070 territory, but budget wouldn't work. Another annoying thing is that I see $1.2k laptops running high end Ryzen chips with 8GB of RAM when it's so cheap right now. I don't see much reason why they would have less than 16GB for the kind of applications they seem to be made for. Something like a Ryzen 5 4600H should do me fine in the CPU department. Maybe there's something I'm ignorant of there though. Also, I'm seeing a bunch of 4k displays, which is not something appealing to me. More power draw and reduced performance for no real benefit. Higher refresh rate is much more important than going above 1080p. Finding what kind of docking support all these laptops have proves to be a real challenge. It would be fairly important to be able to have a good docking solution. When I try to understand the thunderbolt standards, my head rattles. I thought there were laptops that could charge, output display and input keyboard and mouse from one USB C cable, but everyone is always so vague about it. Otherwise, ports aren't that important. As far as battery life goes, I have a hard time figuring out how long certain laptops will last because manufacturers seem to just make up the numbers. Something that can take about 3 hours of fairly intensive use away from the wall is plenty though. One more important aspect with these is the build quality. Things like a good keyboard, trackpad (not as important for me though), webcam and microphone are not ever really done justice with spec sheets. I feel like this is painfully specific, so if there is anyone out there who happens to know of a laptop that's mostly what I'm looking for, thank you for reading this!
  3. I always like to look for them too, They're fucking hilarious, but the whole thing where it was literally sent from myself scared me.
  4. So I got this email 5 days ago and saw it in my spam today. It's sketchy as all hell because it was apparently sent from my own account to me. I blurred that out of course, but what is really scary is that if I hover over the "from:" part, it links back to my google profile. Suffice to say, it's technically from myself. I heard of some way to spoof it without actually having access to my account, but I don't really know if that's the same thing. Whoever sent it has at least decent grammar and plays the hacker role painfully well. "I hope I taught you a good lesson. Do not be so nonchalant, please visit only to proven resources, and don't enter your passwords anywhere!" I'm of course not going to send money to the btc account because the "2 day window" is up and who's to say it's real and who's to say I'm safe if I do it. While none of the stuff he said is necessarily a red flag to be a spoof, it is fairly specific, I feel as if it should be a good bit more specific than that. Also, not to say that this means that it would be a spoof, there is no way he has saved everything off my computer, there are terabytes of data that would have easily passed my data limit, not to mention that I see no large use of data in Windows' data usage logger. This may be a coincidence, but a roommate got his newegg account hacked and purchases were made on it a couple days after. The password was pretty impenetrable. This is a bit out of place, but my primary computer has no camera and he mentions nowhere a phone. If anyone could explain how this is even possible, I would appreciate it. Also, I don't think I was phished (but who knows for sure). Also, yeah I know, this post is a total train wreck
  5. It also wouldn't fit in my case. They way it orients, it goes about 3/4 of an inch into a PSU cover. Very interesting nonetheless.
  6. Is the inside of a case not a insulator of signals? And I lose USB ports on my case lol.
  7. I have USB passthrough on the back of my keyboard, so life isn't too bad. But there needs to be a more streamlined way to do that.
  8. The problem then is that it becomes a huge eyesore. On phones for example, they don't have those gargantuan antennas, they're self contained, but they work. What's up with that?
