    Lathlaer got a reaction from lexusgamer05 in The Most Powerful Laptop EVER!!!   
    There are high end gaming laptops with socketed CPU's even now. Alienware Area 51M comes to mind. I think MSI Titan GT76 also has one.
     
    But the prices are a bit different.
     
    I think the most impressive part of the laptop is how low the markup there is on the components.

    It's gonna suck really bad if after all those months of testing and thousands of dollars of new equippment the conclusion will be "Noctua coolers are the best"

    The video was quite informative and somewhat interesting and now I wonder how their methodology will affect the end results.
     
    In particular, I'm interested to know whether it will validate what everyone knows about coolers from flawed tests ("this is top tier/this one sucks") or whether we will see some upsets ?

    Lathlaer got a reaction from Sakkura in Ultimate boomer law - "joke" bill bans phones for people under 21   
    Won't pass but if it did, I sure hope that no one under 21 is in a state of emergency requiring them to call 911.
     
    I know that he wants to raise an issue but what he isn't saying is how many lives are saved daily by usage of cellphones.

    Lathlaer got a reaction from dalekphalm in *SPOILERS* Star Wars - The Rise of Skywalker Discussion *SPOILERS*   
    Can't really deny that 86% out of 28 thousand verified people gave it a positive opinion (about 4/5) and 77% out of 70 thousand total gave it at least a 3/5.
     
    So your "almost everyone" is anecdotal at best.

    Better than I expected, some scenes still left me wanting. Some were unnecessary (looking at you, last Lando Carlissian dialogue)
     
    If someone hated The Last Jedi, they will most likely enjoy this one as it tries very hard to repair the damage that has been done. The quality suffers sometimes because of it, but still a solid experience.
     
    Just look at Audience Score at RT to see what people think about it  (compared to Last Jedi).
     
    I think people will enjoy Luke in this movie more and that is what most wanted ?
     
    The visuals were top notch. Very fast paced since the beginning. 
     
    Fans of video games in Star Wars universe will finally have the classic Force Powers introduced (I was like "OK, Force Heal, here is Force Drain...").
     
    I have only one main gripe with the new trilogy and that is making the original and the victory in Return of the Jedi hollow and pointless. Since the new trilogy starts with basically the same as the original (suddenly there is a First Order which looks like Empire and they are the dominant power in the galaxy) it doesn't feel like anything at all was won in Return of the Jedi.

    I just saw it. Quite enjoyed myself. It was a blast. 
     
    Maybe not for everyone, but I thought it was an excellent conclusion given that Rian Johnson probably did indeed toss away what JJ had initially setup. 
     
    Plus with how there are these two battling sub-fandoms, it was impossible to please everyone. One side thought TFA was too close to the originals and didn’t try new things. The other side didn’t like when TLJ did try new things. 
     
    It’s okay if you don’t like those or this movie - but I thoroughly enjoyed it, and will see again.

    Lathlaer got a reaction from SnazzyLabs in Missing VOD on FP?   
    So I saw Paul's vlog from LTX and there I've seen a panel that is yet to be uploaded to FP.
     
    Here you see a panel with Linus, Steve from GN and SnazzyLabs - the only panel I've been able to confirm with similar setup is the PC vs. Mac but Linus isn't supposed to be there (Luke was) - which leads me to one of three conclusions:
     
    1. It's a whole different panel
    2. It's the PC vs. Mac panel but for some reason Luke couldn't make it so Linus took over
    3. It's the PC vs. Mac panel with Luke but Linus hijacked a small part of it.
     
    Either way, is it coming to FP? It's the only one I haven't seen ?

    Why would they make a dev kit look like a coccyx cushion... The PS3 dev kit made sense, it was basically a rectangle box.

    Well yeah, there is a reason why classic retrogaming esport players are still using CRT's and it's not because they don't know how to plug in LCDs.

    Lathlaer got a reaction from GDRRiley in What do you think of rewind this year   
    Plain, safe, a bit boring. Better than last year but I agree that most people probably downvoted because it's the hip thing to do.
     
    In YT's place I would skip next years rewind because honestly, there is no way they are going to win people back even if they create a masterpiece.

    Analyzing and reaction videos is how you get traction as a small time youtuber.
     
    I can't count all the small 5-15k sub channels that flooded my recommended YT tab with reactions to the Verge build.

    This actually touches a subject I'm extremely salty about.
     
    I don't like precious metals or gems inflating the price of something.
     
    It's fine for gear that required some intense engineering and was made in limited quantity to have high price that corresponds to the prestige, skills involved and exclusivity. 
     
    But to just slap gold or diamonds and call it a day? It's like getting a regular Rolex watch and changing the bracelet to pure platinum and then encrusting the bezel with diamonds and then claim "look what an expensive watch we made!" - how does that compare to regular watches from Patek Philippe or Vacheron Constantin? It's a whole different level.
     
    In culinary world edible gold and white truffles are those price inflation ingredients. Want to boast that you have the most expensive burger or pizza in the world? Slap white truffles on it and maybe some beluga caviar and voila, you've got it. Want the most expensive ice cream? Decorate with edible gold!

    Let's not pretend that the choice of the song didn't make a difference ?
     
    That being said, I fully acknowledge that the 1266 are excellent pair of headphones, ones that I regrettably did not get to hear when I was deciding on my Utopias but honestly - they would have to be night and day better for me to get past that ergonomics.

    Oh yeah, the audio industry excels in verbose grand descriptions of common techniques that has to justify four or five digit price tag.
