    How do you check if a graphics card is faulty

    latest drivers? temps? other specs of system? 3d mark is a good test

    97c according to Nvidia, you are safe. https://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-1050-ti/specifications
  3. bandwidth for EGPU Razer blade does, most Alienware does, you have to check the specs. depend on TB, some uses 2 other can use up to 4, for Egpu i suggest using 4.

    17in, 3lb, 19hr Laptop LG Gram

    can also cook eggs, having specs doesn't make a machine pro, needs an OS that supports pro programs( engineering programs for me), cooling, a keyboard that doesn't break. yes, i have used the 2018 i9 32gb pro, for testing purpose, yeah it sucks.

    I love my laptops with ports and run OS that can run programs like Solidworks and a usable version of CAD. no, they are not pro.

    too bad no pro laptop feature 16:10 aspect ratio screen sadly, low-end thinkpads don't count.

    Thunderbolt gpu on a desktop?!

    small case bulky high performance gpu is a senerio, i agree you. you can try, it most likely won't work well, it would be much simpiler to put the GPU inside of the pc.

    MacBook Air 2018 – A PC Guy's Perspective

    hey LTT, i have concerns, you didn't bring up cooling, the fan is more of a show than actually help with cooling, snazzy lab did a really good video on this topic. if you can handle the weight go for a 2017 13 inch pro. FYI fan is supposed to touch the CPU die. 12 inch macbook beats this air at certain CPU tests, which is kinda sad. temps, you didn't touch on this please do better/ more research in the future, thanks i fix it teardown-https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/MacBook+Air+13-Inch+Retina+2018+Teardown/115201 Snazzy lab review, IMO better review Ltt review was rushed and forced- https://youtu.be/xRDgVS5KZ_E?t=826

    Here’s why iPhones are better

    I disliked because you are just playing the audience and this video has the most obvious points. support, i agree but longevity is kinda a stretch the nexus 4 is on pie 9.0 unofficial using roms while the iphone 5 is stuck on ios 10. also would you really want to use a 6 year old phone? apple also doesn't port features, i have an old nexus 6p test phone that has portrait mode, 60 fps 1080p video, HDR plus using a modded camera. - https://chromloop.com/2018/03/apk-camera-nx-7-4-base-google-camera-5-2-features-bring-back-hdr-nexus2015/ message- use whats app or telegram, i personally use android messages https://messages.android.com/ it works on mac and windows. end of the day get whatever makes you happy

    Need help after the apple keynote

    still an unjustified price bump, they took away things like 3d touch and cheaper building material. i know that but a 1080p screen wouldn't have cost them that much more power, also phones like s9 offers much higher resolution while keeping good battery life, better than i phone 8 in most scenarios. its just laziness on apple part keeping low res screen on high end phones.

    Need help after the apple keynote

    that's 2010, things definitely have gotten cheaper. yup, the screens were notably better at least my expriance. that's like getting a 720p display with a gtx 1080ti because you want to save power bill. higher resolution does have a lot of advantages, you can also scale resolution like sony or Samsung does. not true, 6, 6s, 7 were cheaper at 649$, the plus was launched at 749$, the 8 was 699$ and 799$ for plus.

    Need help after the apple keynote

    humans can see above 326ppi by the way, there is a difference between 326 and over 400 in a 6.1-inch. it was just cost saving on apples part for them to have a cheap LCD on a 750$ phone. good for the shareholders but bad for the customers.
  15. go for the XPS than, the surface is fine but won't last you long. also, have you tried looking at thinkpad+ Wacom tablet?
