  1. Budget (including currency): £700 Country: United Kingdom Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Nothing too intensive, maybe the occasional older AAA game, esports games, casual games on Xbox Game pass. If not gaming it'll be word processing and chrome/browsing for university work. Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): £700 is a hard cap Hi guys, I'm currently looking at this laptop for my friend to pur
  2. Just to clear up, the Lenovo is the one with the GPU, and the Acer is with the Ryzen 4700U So would you recommend sticking with the Acer 4700U laptop for streaming non-game stuff?
  3. Hi guys, currently looking at 2 options for laptops. It will primarily be used to stream webcam/display captures, not gaming at the same time. I'm wondering if the £100 difference would really make much of a difference in terms of performance? Obviously this https://www.box.co.uk/82B50042UK-Lenovo-Legion-5-15_2938438.html#DetailTop , Lenovo Legion 5 would be better than the other (£650) option https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/acer-aspire-5-a515-44-15-6-laptop-amd-ryzen-7-512-gb-ssd-black-10208150-pdt.html , however, would the change in thread
  4. I'm afraid it's not possible, I'm in need of portability
  5. Thank you for the suggestions, a quick question about 1, do you think the thermals would be okay for streaming? Or would it be safer to go with option 2 for better cooling? Like I said I don't have a need for a GPU so spending the extra money when I don't need to seems like a waste for option 3
  6. Budget (including currency): £750 Max, preferably under or around £650 if it can handle the tasks. Country: United Kingdom Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Streaming, no gaming. Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): Laptop Hi guys I'm in need of some help with laptops, I don't usually browse the market for them but I have to right now. I've been looking around for a good budget laptop capable of streamin
  7. I was not aware that the MX500 has 2 variants, thanks for this information
  8. ye, I'm mostly getting the m.2 because it allows her to keep her old hard drive
  9. aha, im actually reading that right now, thanks for the link What I'm actually most concerned with right now is how the longevity of the drive compares given that I've read around and found out that without dram, the random accesses made by the OS during boot can decrease the lifespan of the drive over time, got any input on that? I assume it'd be > 5 years given they have a 5 year warranty, so maybe this isn't as much of an issue as people make it out to be.
  10. To clarify, my mistake, i wasn't meaning between the 500gb/1TB model, but between the WD Blue nvme drive Warin was talking about, and the Sx8200 pro*
  11. The 1tb model is slightly out of price, I can go for the 500GB variant no problem, if you were suggesting the 1tb model, is there any argument to be made for noticing any real-life performance difference?
  12. How does the WD Blue's performance compare given the DRAM-less cache?
  13. Hi, good day fellas, I was wondering if anyone's got recommendations for a 500GB/1TB NVMe SSD, my budget is around £100~, that's a fairly strict limit of maybe being able to push £10. It'd be used primarily for games/Windows/etc, as the secondary storage is a 5400rpm hdd. I was originally going to gift my gf an upgrade from her hdd to a 2.5" ssd but recently found out she has a M.2 port as well, so I thought I should get one of those to allow for more storage capability. Many thanks, vK
  14. Yeah alright, thanks for the info
