  1. At 15" 1440p is overkill, unless you specifically require high PPI for photo editing or any kind of digital creativity. 1080p won't really start to look pixelated until you're going beyond 20". You've also got added battery consumption if you're driving a high res display to consider. I have a 24" 1440p display myself and can tell you that anything smaller would really be pointless, the pixel density is already very crisp at this size. Personally (and this is just my experience), I haven't met many people, even working in IT, that are fully aware of the difference between 1080p and 1440p. If you started handing out 1440p laptops to staff, I'd bet that 99% of them wouldn't even recognise the improvement, especially on a screen that size. Would be a waste of money in my opinion. Use the extra cost on making sure staff have SSDs or something, they'll notice much more improvement with that.
  2. I have a Sennheiser GSP500 headset which has a pretty good mic built into it. I use the headset for both PC and PS4, so unfortunately standalone mics aren't ideal for a sofa environment. It's unfortunate because the open back design works great for talking, it's just that my old 980Ti has a hard time keeping quiet these days. Thinking of building a new PC later this year so maybe it's time to invest in some quiet hardware.
  3. Many years ago in my Xbox 360 days I had a Turtle Beach headset which had a neat feature called mic monitoring. It meant that my own voice was played back to me through the headset in real time with zero latency. I came to love this feature because it meant that I could be aware of the volume of my voice despite the earcups creating an isolated seal around my ears. I know it might be a bit of a niche feature to want, but I've genuinely grown to hate not being able to hear my own voice with noise isolating headsets, especially at night when I need to keep quiet. Whenever I google this, people's responses are to enable 'listen to this device' in your mic settings in W10, however, this has a noticeable latency delay and is incredibly annoying. Then there's the other side of the spectrum, people saying to buy hundreds of dollars worth of audio amps and kits (which I have no idea about) in order to achieve latency free monitoring. Does anyone know if there is a 'cheapish' way to do this? I recently purchased an open back headset which is great for hearing my own voice, but now my PC running like a turbo engine playing games is getting annoying in the background, which is making me want to switch back to a closed back design. Unfortunately most of the top-end headsets don't have any mic monitoring features built in.
