    idk, I really like my Matebook X, which I specifically purchased because of its light weight and small footprint. 
    imo, it depends on the type of laptop you want in the first place; mine is perfect for schoolwork, which is all I do on it, but if I was doing anything more intensive, I'd definitely carry around something a bit thiccer.

    I've done this so many times, just tabbed out and forgot; the R6 menu isn't demanding enough to slow my PC down, so it sort of just sits there.

    the largest factor that pushed me from my 290x to a 980 was game performance
    even though the 290x was just as powerful when overclocked, I remember Watch Dogs being unplayable just because I had an AMD card on an NVIDIA title. Upon switching to a 980, my performance issues disappeared, even though the card's power was nearly identical.

    @shadowbyte never learned how to use it to record gameplay... nor am I a streamer. 
     
    also the "more VRAM is better" thing is just a bust.... unless you are playing at 1440p extra high detail or 4k, 3GB of VRAM is more than enough... 
     
    And plus the lack luster performance I got from my Ryzen 1200 I can say that there is gonna be a while for me do to any sort of purchase from AMD.... (ok i didnt overclock it, but still. lackluster)

    I use a 1440p panel as my main monitor, and I'm fine with a low res on such a small screen. My iPhone SE looks fantastic, imo, at 768p because the display is so small.

    yep
    pixel density is the key word. 4k makes sense on a massive screen, but at such a small size, there's such a small difference in image quality beyond a certain threshold.

    Bingo.
    I've never understood the genuine practicality of throwing 1440p panels in 5.5"+ phones. Honestly, 1080p works just fine in that scenario; 1440p's just a waste at that kind of pixel density.
    It's why 1136x640 (or 720p) works fine at 4" or around that range. The pixel density is definitely high enough to where anything higher is a bit of a waste.
