  1. It can work fine with programming, but you can't expect doing 3D designing on this laptop. You need a solid build for that. While looking at the price point, it's okay to buy it at this price. However, If you can spend a little more, I think Acer Aspire E 15 would fit in your needs better. Here's the config and product link: https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Aspire-i5-8250U-GeForce-E5-576G-5762/dp/B075FLBJV7/ 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8250U Processor (Up to 3.4GHz) 15.6" Full HD (1920 x 1080) widescreen LED-lit IPS Display 8GB Dual Channel Memory & 256GB SSD Up to 15-hours of battery life.Adapter: 65 W Windows 10 Home It has got GeForce MX150 which performs quite better than the 940MX (of your laptop), here are the benchmark for reference: https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-MX150-0-vs-Nvidia-940MX/m332822vsm88506 There are lot other laptops that you can buy from $400 to $600 price range, for instance I found this post: https://laptopdiscovery.com/best-laptops-under-600/ My final question to you - how much are you willing to spend? Based upon that I would be able to suggest you more laptops
  2. Hi there, As you might know, DIY systems would cost you less amount of money compared to pre-built models. Regardless, I totally understand your preference of getting a pre-built laptop, and you have a really decent budget for the same, so my suggestion would be: SkyTech Chronos 2700x/RTX 2070 super gaming PC. Here are the specs of this model: AMD Ryzen 7 8-core 2700X processor RTX 2070 super 8GB video card 1 TB SSD 16GB RAM The RGB lighting and Wi-Fi connectivity are the highlights of this PC. Hope this suggestion helps!
  3. Hello, For the requirements that you have mentioned, your mom wouldn't need a high performance laptop or something with high specs; an everyday laptop will help her carry out all her desired tasks. Since you are looking to spend only around £400, I'm afraid you wouldn't be get any latest version. But, you don't necessarily have to go for a used or refurbished model too. I'd strongly recommend you to check out some of these laptops: Honor Magicbook 14 - £550 Lenovo Yoga 530 - £499 Avita Liber 14 - £500 Hope your mom gets the best laptop for her needs!
  4. I would say that the 4600H with GTX 1650 Ti is the better option for gaming and 3D animation. With respect to RAM, the 16 GB version should suit your needs best. Of course, you have the option of extending it to 32 GB DDR4 RAM as well, if you want more performance in the future. Are you specific about playing any particular game? Because, the performance varies based on the games you play as well. Please do share your thoughts for more information.
  5. Hello, The information you have shared is very minimal to arrive at a conclusive list of suggestions. But, for your budget of $700, here are a few suggestions: Lenovo IdeaPad 720s - great for both gaming and general multitasking, full HD screen, portable, and over 10 hours battery life. Dell Inspiron 15 7570 - great processing speed, good battery life, and full HD IPS display; but a bit overpriced for your budget. Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54 - falls within your budget, great battery life, good keyboard, full HD IPS display. Hope you find this useful!
  6. So, you are looking for a gaming laptop under this price range! If that is your sole preference, you should certainly go for the Asus, because the GPU performance is really good compared to the one Acer has. Yes, I agree GTX 1050 delivers a strong gaming and computing performance than RX560. The clock speed delivered by the Asus laptop is also slightly better than the Asus. The CPU cache is also 8MB in the case of Asus compared to just 2MB in Acer. This relates to a solid CPU and GPU performance on the whole! If you have any other specific requirement other than gaming, do share it, I’d be happy to recommend few laptops in this price range.
  7. As the configuration you have mentioned, I don’t think it is worth that much. The pricing is exorbitant and I cannot think of even owning a super computer for this price. That is the level of apprehension I am feeling right now seeing the price of a gaming performance laptop. As mentioned above, the price breakup for such a specification is almost half and even that is not worth the performance you are expecting from it. As far as I am concerned, it is a scam, knowing what the breakup of all those individual parts are worth now! Definitely a no no!
  8. According to your specifications, I would suggest the following models for you: Dell G5 15-inch Acer Predator Helios 300 Lenovo IdeaPad L340 HP Pavilion Power 15 HP Omen 15 MSI GF63 9SC-066 I'd also like you to check out these two that run on AMD Ryzen: MSI Bravo 17 ASUS TUF A15 I accept that Intel i7 would be a great choice in terms of high performance; however, as far as value for money goes, you should consider AMD Ryzen. Hope these suggestions help!
  9. I have not mentioned anything about quality. You've quoted the wrong guy! ROFL
  10. No. It is always better to stay with an older operating system, because upgrading to the latest version is more likely to slow down the performance of your system. High Sierra OS should be more than adequate. So, I don't think you should do anything else. Happy to help!
  11. Your question sounds interesting and the reason for it is because, I never thought RAM speed and performance metrics made a huge difference in me being able to enjoy my favorite games. My focus was mainly on mobo, GPU, processor, storage, and battery pack of the laptop or PC. Even for video editing, to my knowledge I don’t think the RAM speed has a major role to play (I don’t mean to offend you in anyway). Even for 4K performance and other intense video editing, gaming, and other high performance computing tasks, the RAM speed has a very insignificant role. The difference you are referring to is very minute and I’d highly recommend you to check out other specifications than this. This is just my opinion and I am pretty happy to help you!
  12. I think this is one amazing question! I really appreciate that you have brought this query on this forum. I never imagined such a scenario, especially with the battery pack of my laptop. Wouldn’t that be nice!? Yeah, really! But as far as I am concerned, I think there are certain technical and physical integration drawbacks when trying to incorporate such an unplug-gable battery unit or switch of some sort. Whenever I use my laptop, I keep it charged until the juice is full and when it is completely drained, it just shuts off, that’s all simple. We might face firing issues in the case of a switchable battery pack. That’s be my guess! Happy to share my thoughts and opinions!
  13. This is the same question I had in my mind a couple of months back and the solution to this doubt or problem, if you’d like to put it that way, is quite simple. I have just 400W power supply and I did not face any problem whatsoever, so I’d strongly recommend you to stop thinking about this issue and focus on other things. You have 500W, which is more than adequate as far as I am concerned. It is a pleasure to share my thoughts with you! Hope you like it and I’d be happy to help you with any other doubts!
  14. If you are not able to be present in the room physically for some reason or the other, the best solution for your issue would be using an ethernet cable, as suggested by most of us here. As far as I am concerned, I don’t think the connectivity range or network strength will have any issue, but try to stick with a shorter ethernet cable, as that should eliminate connectivity disruptions. I have kids at home and I don’t like the thought of putting cables lying around, so if you have such issue, it is better to stay away from that thought.
  15. I have not tried it out, but have definitely heard a lot from one of my friends who happens to own it. He was predominantly using Linux for his work, so I suppose even you are going to be doing the same. From what I have heard, it is quite user-friendly and a perfect companion especially for official purposes. The ability to configure it for a wide range of specifications is one of its strong features. I have heard that the build quality and touchpad performance are the only two weak links. I am pretty happy to share this information with you.
