Dell XPS 15.  Keyboard, build quality and temps are a whole lot better.  The biggest reason I can't recommend the Zenbook pro are the touch temps, there is no point in a portable laptop if you can't use it on your lap.

I don’t know about dells honestly, both me and my dad had dells (I had the Inspiron and he had the xps), used them extensively, not for super heavy stuff, and we both had issues after about a year... 

the system would just crash, and need to reboot. 

I think the thermals get very bad on dells after a while. 


Nonetheless, I’d still go for it if someone tells me his Dell had no issues after more than two years of use. Maybe I should just learn how to do the maintenance properly. 


Thanks for your help :-)

I personally would bring a mouse to a laptop ._. the screenpad apps taking up 90-100% of the trackpad wouldn't totally kill it for me since I have a mouse

(although I can imagine the accidental touching while typing ._.)

Kindof looks like the same censor ASUS used for my Vivobook 15. Like where are these manufacturers getting these parts? Along with those stupid 1366x768 displays, you'll probably have to dig deep into warehouses in Shenzhen to even find parts of this low spec anymore.  


Isn't it funny how Chinese manufacturers seem to be pushing the boundaries when it comes to displays for the masses while your well known ASUSs, Lenovos, HPs, Dells, are still pushing out the same crap that would've been revolutionary... in 2006.

yeah those 768 displays got me pissed more than any webcam, xD seems like a pest... like throw 20 tvs at 200-400$ and a few of them are 768 xD and they call HD , hd my ass a 42inch 720p display has the high definition on the plastic that shows its brand, nothing else xD 

And when a 768 laptop stutters when you connect any 1080p monitor to play xD ? thats the best

The video barely touches on the touchbar feature of the MacBook Pro. Am I missing something?

Maybe because it isn't about the macbook pro?

This is pretty garbage compared to the TouchBar. You shouldn't need to toggle between a touchpad or an application, you should have the luxury of both.


To add, as shown if you read the news article Linus, instead of skimming, the Core i9 problem was not exclusive to the MacBook. 

MacBook Pro Retina 15" 2016 / i7 6700HQ / AMD 450 2GB / 16GB RAM / Touché Bar / Mojave 10.14

iPhone 7 / 256GB / iOS 12

Apple Watch / WatchOS 4.3.1

Pioneer AVH-2150bt

I've heard there are delays when using the touchpad-screen in some situations. It's a very cool idea but it may not ready for prime time yet even with open software. The thermal throttling, sheesh what were they thinking. This, the XPS 97570 and the Macbook Pro... were the engineers told to shut the hell up when they kept telling their bosses the cooling system couldn't keep up with the i9, nor the high end i7s?
