Need help between laptops

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi I'm looking for a nice school laptop thinking about Dell xps 13 and the razer blade stealth. Which one do you guys think is better and why? If you guys have a recommendation preferably a 13 inch laptop. 

(For the configuration with Dell and razer I wanted the 4k with touchscreen with 256 ssd)

Thanks!

XPS 13 of course, Razer quality control is a joke.


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a mobile workstation/gaming laptop double WITH CRAPPY THERMAL PASTE THAT 1/2 THE CINEBENCH SCORE

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1700MHz 0.812V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 CL19 (timings are so loose, might as well have lower frequency). Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 2 exhausts Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 770 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

The Dell is cheaper no?


Don't forget to enable XMP!

Here is why you should stay away from cheap SSDs.

Somewhat the same price with 4k display touchscreen config

So the Blade goes to QHD+ 3200x1800 whereas the Dell is 4k 3840x2160 but the Dell comes to be about 500 dolla' more for the extra pixels because the rest of the specs are the same.

 

 

Personally, I don't mind the QHD or 4k missing from my smaller displays. 1080p is enough for a 13inch laptop in my opinion.

Might just a actually go with a 1080 display. I just wish that Dell have a 1080p with touchscreen config.

"The Dell XPS 13. Got some extra cash, get a surface laptop."

So yeah get the Dell. If you get a surface laptop note you may need a cheap dongle. Asus also makes good laptops. It also depends, do you care how it looks?


They say no images so here:

Don't really care how it looks as long as it's pretty slim and 13inch screen preferably touchscreen too.

If you want a decent yet cheap 13 inch device with touchscreen, Yoga 730 13 or Spin 5 13
