  1. I would love to see most of the new phone trends stop. Honestly if things keep going the way they are my next phone will be a cheap prepay nokia. The notch is insufferable. It triggers me. I will not own a phone before I own one with a notch. Curved glass sucks. Any extra real estate is wasted. All glass phones suck. Far too fragile. On that point there is no phone on the market right now that is tolerably durable. Not being able to change the battery in my phone is another insufferable effect of the new phone trends.
  2. Chromebooks aren't really useful once you are outside of grade school. They dont do anything well. You can buy a 5-6 year old laptop that will easily outperform most chrome books. You could put a lightweight linux distro on it and make it work for light tasks, but honestly anything a chromebook can do I can do on my phone with a 5 dollar bluetooth keyboard.
  3. What are you doing that your laptop will be out of your eyesight unattended? Common sense and keeping your laptop on your person at all times on campus will do you more good than a cheap piece of vinyl.
  4. With the current trends in quality control 1-2 years tops before its basically not useful as a laptop. 3-4 years before its worthless.
  5. Just curious why you link this post? It leaves alot of good pastes out and includes some that pump out rather quickly. There used to be a post that had rather scientific data about the most popular pastes and their resistance to the pump out effect in bare die applications. I cannot find it anywhere. That being said on a bare die viscosity is everything on a laptop. The thicker it is the longer it lasts pretty much. Also with most manufacturers they consider replacing the Tim self damage and void the warranty. Lastly 60c is pretty average. Alot of laptops will not ramp the fans up until 55-60 to keep audible noise to a minimum. If it bothers you use Asus cooling over boost to change the fan curve before making any changes.
  6. I pretty much needed the same thing. My budget was about half of what you have. I ended up with an Acer nitro 5, but given a higher budget definitely would have gone with something out of the thinkpad line. Just a word of advice from experience. Do not go "thin and light". I tried using my msi gs63 and it was so loud the majority of my teachers would not allow it in the classroom, and this was with basic note taking and browsing. Under load most thin and lights sound like a jet engine taking off.
  7. Kryonaut and nt-h1 dont do well in low mounting pressure. They pump out very quickly. How do you like the master gel? It's in my list but haven't tried it yet. Ic diamond is very good for longevity and ceramique is as well. Ceramique often gets looked over, but it performs well and lasts forever.
  8. Stick to older (2012 and older) titles and indie games.
  9. Why support a company that uses anti consumer policies when there are other options?
  10. As for the indebted thing if it is not for school or work, basically any purpose where it will be an investment, then yeah very dumb. As for the laptop wait for reviews. My personal opinion is not to support Huawei. Also thin and light laptops are great for web browsing, notes, and office tasks, but they cannot dissipate heat. A high spec thin and light is a waste of time and money unless you like sitting in xtu and seeing it say thermal limit.
  11. Don't expect a huge price drop on a desirable model. Manufacturers have time to sell their current stock before releasing new models. Don't expect a huge performance jump with the new mobile GPU's. The mobile market has pretty much hit a brick wall with thermals. The new rtx cards are even performing vastly different between models. Get what you need when you need it. No matter how long you wait the second you take it home it is out of date.
  12. Selling used items really comes down to the market around you. That being said netbooks in my area dont sell. You can recycle them or pawn them off on a younger family member. Every time someone posts one is sits for months until they give up.
  13. It would be more likely to sell if it was complete. If you do part it Ebay is usually easiest for weird parts. Ram and screen will sell quick for next to nothing. The motherboard will sit until someone needs that exact model.
  14. The thunderbolt technology website has a list of tb3 laptops.
