  1. I bought an old used xeon and it works great (see my signature). A 3700x is definitely overkill though.
  2. I'm planning to reinstall windows immediately so any proprietary software will be gone. Building a system is out of the question, I've already got a good build and this PC will be for college.
  3. Fair point, but I'm specifically interested in Huawei devices having issues because of bans regarding that company.
  4. So you're saying don't buy any laptop at all?
  5. I'm considering buying the matebook x pro for it's glorious 3:2 display if I can get a good deal on black friday. What I'm worried about are potential issues as a result of bans regarding Huawei products. Is it at all likely that I could lose support from Microsoft, or are updates hardware agnostic to the point that the manufacturer is irrelevant? The hardware is still intel/nvidia, regardless of whether Huawei made it. Otherwise, I could try to get a surface laptop for the 3:2 display (to my knowledge the only 3:2 laptops on the market are huawei's and the surface laptops).
  6. Yes, that's a great monitor. I have a much cheaper dell version that is a TN panel and it has some issues with banding as you described, though I don't notice it during gameplay, just in menu screens sometimes.
  7. If price isn't an issue, have you considered 1440p 144hz? Asus has some good IPS models.
  8. He also wants to play games and windows is generally better for that.
  9. Zen 2 is better than zen 1 at this point for the money. OP, what resolution and refresh rate are you looking to game at?
  10. Why do you prefer intel over amd? amd has intel completely beat if you want to stream and game.
  11. Update: Some people I've talked to have called the security of using a Chinese device into question, but this seems like paranoia to me. Any thoughts on this? I'm open to a different brand or even 16:9 if I can get a 2160p screen (but I doubt I can get one for this price).
  12. Right now the i5 model of the Huawei Matebook X Pro looks promising. I'm not sure how I feel about the 14 inch screen, though.
  13. I'll be starting college next fall and am considering buying a laptop in the meantime for use then (though I will use it some now alongside my desktop). With black friday approaching, I'm hoping to get a good deal on a laptop. I'm primarily looking for one with a 3:2 aspect ratio but would be fine with one that has a 1440p or 2160p display. I am not worried about performance aside from that. My most intense workloads will involve computer science classes so I don't need anything fancy. My budget would be between $1000-1500, hopefully on the lower end of that. Something like the surface laptop 3 would work well but there are probably better options. Any thoughts? Edit: I should have mentioned that I'm less interested in something with a screen that is below 15 inches.
  14. Just don't do what I did and lose one of your case screws my meshify c only has 3 out of 4 now...
