  1. Most current laptops have the "brick" portion of the charger stop once the laptop is at full battery. I wonder if @NotABigGamer had it in the sun if overheating was the issue. But as for practical use, I don't believe most modern laptop chargers can overheat if at all. They get hot for sure, but not enough to kill itself (I think). May have been a factory defect as stated or perhaps an aging issue depending on how old it is.
  2. You are correct, I should have specified the lack of physical buttons rather
  3. For some, maybe the lack of customization of macros on the side of the mouse. I know a lot of people prefer to have macros programmed to their mice and this one doesn't have that available. So perhaps if you're not into that anyway, than it won't be such a deal breaker. It's light weight, great sensor, wireless (response is as good as wired), and it looks sleek. Edit: Editing due to the post above mine. As a claw gripper I cannot say too much, claw grip feels more universal in terms of mouse usage, aside from the smaller mice on the market. Palm grip will greatly change opinions from a claw grip. The shape of the mouse is a bit odd now that I think of it.
  4. Literally just look up his name...it's why he argues with anyone who posts something that doesn't support nor agree with his post 100% "unwilling or refusing to change one's views or to agree about something."
  5. This is actually pretty freakin solid for $1100. @OP, you should go just a little over budget for something like this. Great parts, great case, awesome keyboard, mid-high mouse, definitely future proof. This is great.
  6. I didn't like the lesser CPU and DIY case. DIY cases, while cheap as hell, also feel cheap and most are heat traps. NO bueno. I do think OP should buy his GPU on Prime Day or something, the 570 does seem like a solid option if low budget is his thing.
  7. Welp, silly question. I know the new gen Ryzen chips just came out, but does anyone expect the massive retailer Amazon to have some on sale? I know they are cheap enough as it is, but saving money is always great. I don't care if it's even 10 dollars, but does anyone speculate a price drop? Even if it's only slightly marginal? Perhaps a bundle even, hmm... Welp, any help or speculation would be great, thanks
  8. You know, I'll see what's going on for Amazon day! Surely they'll have some great deals, even on a last year model!
  9. OP's build is actually better despite the $50 increase. I'd stick with his to be honest. @NewBuilder01 The only thing I would suggest is spending an extra 30 bucks for a total of 16 gigs rather than 8. It goes a long way in terms of multi-tasking. Even minuscule things such as surfing the web, trust me.
  10. Hey guys! So I recently made a topic about my brother's PC and he pulled the trigger on a Ryzen 3600 chip to be paired with the ASUS B-450 board I gave him. The only issue now is we need to make sure he can get a BIOS update. He is currently on intel and so am i, so we can't do it ourselves. Do you guys know of any retailers or ships that can do it? I don't mind paying for it.
  11. Thanks guys! Seems like a pretty open and shut case. I was thinking exactly that, the 3600. I just didn't want to add any bias but it seems that it's the obvious choice here! Thanks fellas!
  12. Hey guys! So my brother has finally decided to upgrade his rig and I need some suggestions since the new Ryzen chips came out. His budget isn't the hugest, maybe being at $400 to upgrade I gave him an ASUS STRIX B450-F mobo. He currently has a 1060 for his gpu and will upgrade to a 2070 come December. So with the new Ryzen chips out, which one would be paired pretty well with the eventual 2070? I believe the RAM he will be getting is from the Trident series at 3000Mhz. So that's a hundred from the budget. Which leaves us with $300 for the CPU. He likes to play tons of games such as Battlefield, Rocket League, MK, and a ton of indie games. Any help would be seriously appreciated! He's hoping to upgrade sometime within the next month.
  13. The wifi model actually seems to be a great value! The cellular model however, $380 is above my budget for now. I thank you very much for your suggestion!
  14. Is that off of Amazon? And which model? Sorry, when I google or Amazon it, it just says "newest model", not like iPad air 2 for example
  15. all hail @DrMacintosh May I have a suggestion or two within my budget all mighty Apple-user
