  1. I'll look into that, thank you.
  2. I could try that. I have most of the boxes still. Thanks
  3. Most likely local or on a hardware swap site, like the subreddit or elsewhere.
  4. You think? Even with a 2080 and two monitors?
  5. This is as close I can get on PCPartPicker PCPartPicker Part List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/CqcVsZ CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4 GHz Quad-Core Processor ($294.99 @ SuperBiiz) CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i 77 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler Motherboard: Asus PRIME Z270-A ATX LGA1151 Motherboard Memory: EVGA SuperSC 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 Memory Video Card: EVGA GeForce RTX 2080 8 GB XC ULTRA GAMING Video Card ($709.99 @ Newegg) Case: NZXT H440 ATX Mid Tower Case Power Supply: EVGA B3 750 W 80+ Bronze Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($79.89 @ OutletPC) Monitor: Dell S2417DG 23.8" 2560x1440 165 Hz Monitor ($299.99 @ Newegg) Monitor: MSI Optix MAG341CQ 34.0" 3440x1440 100 Hz Monitor ($419.00 @ B&H) Total: $1803.86 I won't be setting any storage with it, but I would provide a Windows license. I'm just not sure how much to start out with, I don't want to start too high and no one look into it, but I also don't want to price it too low. Any opinions on how much I should ask? Edit: The list only contains the price of the items still being sold, not the entire build price

    Is this a good price or overpriced.?

    Seems like a decent deal. 2700x - $250 on Amazon 16gb vengeance ram - $70 rog mobo - lets say avg $150 psu - lets say $100 1080ti - avg $500 on ebay I'd ask for more details on the parts.

    My Laptop DIED - Time to Pick a New One!

    All of the Windows laptops had an i7 and 16gb of ram. Some even with 512gb storage. If you wanted that in a Macbook Pro 13, the cheapest option with an i7 16gb 256gb is $2000, or the better i7 with the same specs is $2300. With the Blade having a dedicated gpu at $1900, or the Dell being much cheaper at $1600. Even if they did put the Pro instead of the Air, it's still limited by the ports, since he said he still wants USB A, and the price is still more, even if its is just a few hundred at most. Maybe they just didn't have a comparable Pro at the time?

    Think a Macbook could be a good option to start to get into MacOS? I can get it for 700-800 USD

    That's what I was thinking. Only the 15 inch has DDR4

    That's true. Plus I can't think of any Windows specific features I'd be missing. I see that the newest MBP 13in is still using DDR3L ram, do you think that would noticeably impact performance? In terms of general use and also "gaming" on bootcamp with eGPU (if that's even possible)

    I have a license so that is fine with me. I'm worried I'll be missing out on features but I can't think of any now.

    So I do have an ITX build but Im just not really happy with it. Its heavy, it requires a mouse, keyboard, and monitor. So to move all that from place to place for a day isn't ideal. Plus I wouldn't be able to use it on my couch

    I'm ok with learning MacOS plus I might dual boot with Bootcamp. I like the "Premium" look of those three devices. I liked the HP Spectre but I don't care for the newest ones. I looked at the Dell XPS, and there are so many compromises I feel like I would have to do for a gaming laptop from Asus, MSI, and others. Like good performance but not great keyboard, or not great build quality. Or good build quality, but sub par specs or not a great screen.

    Thank you for your reply! I do have a pretty good gaming desktop currently, but I would want the laptop to take to school, or just be able to do my homework on the couch. I do also go to my friends for lan parties and such (which the eGPU or gaming part comes in) but I don't do that often.
  15. I know this gets posted every other minute, and I read through the most recent 3 pages of this topic before posting. I will be doing basic stuff like web browsing and office programs. I would like to do either a lot of gaming or at least some light gaming. The three I'm looking at is mostly heated by people here but, -Surface Book 2 15 inch -Razer Blade 15 RTX -MacBook Pro 13in with i5 I would like a higher resolution screen, and TB3 if possible so I connect to a dock and/or eGPU Weight does not matter but lighter wis nicer, decent battery life is a plus (8+ hours), 13-15in, and I would like good build quality. I would like it to be decently color accurate too Always had Windows but I (think) I want to try MacOS Located in the US. Budget up to or around $2000.
