  1. New laptop

    XPS 15 cannot perform due to thermal throttling. You can read more about its issues here https://www.ultrabookreview.com/19675-im-not-buying-new-xps-15-9570/
  2. University laptop

    Budget? Weight? 14 inches is less common than 13 and 15. Is there a reason why?
  3. Laptop for productivity and gaming

    If you do LM + undervolt, they are okay. Maybe you want Dell G5/G7 but only 1060.
  4. Laptop search for university

    Even though it looks better on paper, it cannot perform due to thermal throttling. You can read more about its issues here https://www.ultrabookreview.com/19675-im-not-buying-new-xps-15-9570/ XPS 13 also can be easily charge with a regular power bank. the 15 needs Dell's. Also consider buying refurb from Dell outlet. Right now, they have 17% off on XPS
  5. Laptop search for university

    XPS 15 has thermal issues so I would avoid. G7 will not last 6 hours on battery. Review sites clocked it around 4 to 5. And is heavy. Out of those three, I would pick XPS 13 and hold off on the eGPU. How much time are you going to spend on gaming instead of studying or hanging out in party?
  6. Razer power bank with blade 15

    As I said, I dont think the blade 15 can be charge via USB. So all USB power bank is out of questions. You need to get something like this, https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/the-best-portable-ac-power-supply-so-far/, an AC portable power bank. You need one that is rated at least 180W
  7. Razer power bank with blade 15

    I dont think the blade 15 has usb charging
  8. Ordering XPS 15 9570

    You sure you want XPS 15? It has many issues, such as thermal
  9. Beefy Laptop Shopping

    Dell outlet with coupon and DIY RAM upgrade. http://outlet.us.dell.com/ArbOnlineSales/Online/InventorySearch.aspx?c=us&cs=22&l=en&s=dfh&brandid=2201&sign=PXhcOSHtr1T4IOw%2fPR7UdVq7s%2fr38%2bJsgCoyAOuymQbqy0Wgs2EiTiZ1tJWVoG61geLbjuE%2bA5tcCAw4WTn3JYV4MfELRtge5qMl48bHaBFdmQo05dlQPfCArJ8G5RtSU3T1ileVPgWmpBaMy2Ojp5hvyoTD4X3Xl1KGe8mhjZnDI03rguUlC%2b%2bKuwoFO%2bUq2xnaJNV8rzIbrHLtbaQOasp7Xd1qWAMPqqIzMC%2fWMc7pn0grJzDBDBimQnH1sC%2f16csCtboIRWu35cwcA3NpK1fYZGqD0GrAz4RGnnLGCZuUvNVL7ONr%2bg%3d%3d
  10. iPad or Laptop

    Or wait a bit and see how are the surface go and the new ipad that suppose to come out in Sept
  11. Depends. If you are like Linus and keep dropping things, it wont last long. If you take care your stuff, then the hardware can last a long time. I still have laptop over 10 years though they wont play modern games
  12. XPS 15 has cooling issue so it will throttle. What software do you use for video editing? Some prefer higher cores while some will benefit with a beefy dGPU
  13. Only if you dont mind carrying the adapter. Some of the adapters are close to 1lb on top of the laptop weight. So if weight is important then you want battery life. Since I need to take the train everyday with my laptop, I dont want to carry extra weight if I dont need to in case I need to stand.
  14. Since you want to upgrade, the GS65 will be the hardest to do since it has a reverse motherboard. Razer has a lot of QC and customer support issue. Aero 15x, which I have, has its display, keyboard, and ram issues. ROG has terrible battery so is weight a issue? If I have multiple girlfriends, I wouldnt worry much about gaming
