  1. Laptop for Education and overall Work

    Yeah, Thinkpads are known for having really good keyboards. Sometimes there can be a few issues just like with Windows on a desktop. You might have to play around a bit with power plans to get the optimal battery life. But Windows on laptops is reliable.
  2. Laptop for Education and overall Work

    Better keyboard? I take it you're not familiar with Thinkpads . Thinkpads have the best laptop keyboard . Plus many old macs are getting the boot with macOS 10.14
  3. Yup. Contact Dell and tell them you want it to be replaced under warranty.
  4. Laptop for Education and overall Work

    Actually, the T480s has 4 lanes for the TB3 port and only 2 lanes are assigned to the dGPU. I've heard of many cases of coil whine issues regarding XPS 13 and XPS 15. Also, with the XPS 13 the RAM is soldered on (whereas the T480s has 1 RAM slot and 4GB/8GB soldered on) and the value for money isn't nearly as good. The T480s Campus Edition is substantially better value for money imho. The MX 150 is good for GPU accelerated tasks but not necessarily for gaming.

    I'm guessing you live in germany since I haven't been able to find any reference of this programme outside of german websites. Honestly, it should be a good laptop. It's effectively a 14" X280 despite being part of the T series. I've heard that the T480s' MX 150 has only 2 lanes given to it and I've also heard that it has the MaxQ DDR4 MX150.
  6. Laptop for Education and overall Work

    At this point, there's no reason to go for the 9360 unless it's a lot cheaper than the 9370. Also, I wouldn't recommend Dell XPS laptops in general.
  7. RAM Support for Ryzen

    It should be fine so long as your motherboard handles OCed RAM well. But honestly, anything faster than 2933MHz is basically overkill for Ryzen.
  8. K GG Google. 

     

    Of course Google has no idea what the concept of a fair price is. 

     

    I'm calling it. YouTube Premium is gonna not do well and die. That price point is wayyyyyy too high.

      The thing is they should've implemented a similar system years ago, everyone uses adblock and has youtube to mp3 downloaders now. Even if the price was lower, I don't see it doing well.

  9. Wait wtf, why is the price for YouTube Premium $11.99 per month? That's wayy overpriced and not worth it at all. $9.99 would be okay but $11.99 per month is price gauging considering not everybody will want YouTube Music and the Premium YouTube features. That price is such a rip off. IMO they should have kept them as separate subscriptions.
  10. Let's be real though, are you actually using Prime Music full time instead of Spotify or YouTube? Prime Music is so limited that it's just a free +1 for prime members and not worth getting Prime over.
  11. It basically replaces YouTube Red. That exchange rate isn't too awful considering the UK price includes VAT. So it's 10% more expensive for us after VAT. Cos the american price doesn't have Tax included.
  12. I'm going to hazard a guess that this only applies to Skylake-X and anything using Intel's Mesh Core Communication Architecture. Yeah, which leads me to believe it's a Skylake-X issue.
  13. So many updates O.o. Please Microsoft, calm down :P.

  14. AMD tells 8086K Winners to trade in CPU for TR 1950X

    You can't cos they're limited production run only.
  15. AMD tells 8086K Winners to trade in CPU for TR 1950X

    Wow. I'm liking this more aggressive marketing side of AMD . If anybody has a 8086K then this is what they should do with it.
