  1. Thanks for clarifying what the topic is about. My take on this is basically that if you don't want to get spied on don't use electronics with an internet connection so I am not any more concerned about China spying than any other company/country/entity.
  2. None of this would affect the products on the shelves and still in stock right now though.
  3. What sorta effects you think it could have on existing products?
  4. Thank you. The non-upgradeable RAM is really the only downside I see with this thing and I am not quite sure if that really is excuseable. On the other hand for that price and formfactor I don't know. As for the problems with Huawei I hope that the only problem that could occur would be that just like with all the phone parts they are not allowed to put e.g. Windows on their future machines. If you buy a product in the shelfs now they better keep their licences. Thanks I'm going to have a look into the Flex lineup from Lenovo.
  5. Hey guys, as the title says I am curious in your opinions on the Huawei Matebook D 14" with the Ryzen 5 2500U CPU and Vega 8 graphics. It would fit my needs exactly as I think and I could get it for 500 € which would be roughly 560 $. Would that be a good deal or do you think there's better options for the same price? If you have suggestions please consider the following criteria which I require from a laptop: Keyboard backlight: I want to use it in the dark so kb backlight is important. 1920 x 1080 resolution screen: Mostly for full HD streaming. 8 GB of RAM: It needs to handle 10-15 Tabs in [insert browser] simultaneously. The smallest possible formfactor: This is going to be my on the go device so as light and small as 14" can be. It needs to get work done (office etc.) and have a fluent overall feeling. No really heavy workloads but if it can game a slight bit I won't be mad. Thanks iC®
  6. You might consider more RAM if it is for video editing. Don't forget a CPU cooler in case you don't have one yet.
  7. Finally got the two parts that were still missing for my dream build! The only thing left to do now is pray to god that this machine is going to last forever.

  8. I know my old one had some sort of OS in the BIOS but I am not sure if it works without a CPU. Think this was just for browsing the net without an OS or bootdrive.
  9. Haha completely forgot that. Wondering why you can still not boot a board without CPU. By now we should be that far.
  10. I don't know if you're going for a certain coloured build but I can recommend the Asus Z170 Pro Gaming motherboard. On the cheaper side and yet has everything you asked for. Problem would be red and black theme.
  11. There's always gonna be something worse somewhere. That is no justification for something being bad as it is.
  12. A good soundcard can make way more of a difference than 3.5mm vs USB surround headsets. Since you have a pretty good sound card I'd just get a decent 3.5mm one and you're good to go.
  13. I know that all too well. We've been taught so too hence why I still hold my fans when blowing them.
  14. He can blast the CPU fan too. If he wants to be sure not to damage anything he can just hold the blades and make sure it does not start turning. Other than that I recommend:
  15. Why don't you post anymore?
