  1. A Huawei tablet I ordered right before the lockdowns started finally arrived earlier this week. Perhaps unsurprisingly USA is not an available region to register, is there a best option to choose? Canada seems like the logical choice, but is there any reason to choose the UK, Australia or any other country?
  2. If you want just an audio player, my choice would be the Walkman A50. Only 16 GB of on board storage, but has micro SD. But like everyone else pointed out, your best bet is probably picking up a refurbed first generation iPhone SE. https://www.crutchfield.com/p_158NWA55B/Sony-NW-A55-Walkman-Black.html?mfr=NW-A50+SERIES&fromlanding=1
  3. None of what you said is true. There are dozens of models of NUC style computers with Thunderbolt, unfortunately most of them are using dual-core 7th gen processors. My house is perfect for a backup data center. The only 2 requirements are broadband internet and geographic separation. The only meaningful difference between NUC boards and "server grade hardware" is ECC memory support - Intel NUC boards are actually designed for 100% uptime embedded uses, then thrown in a plastic case. You're implication of "real" business is bogus. Even if the only employees
  4. Is anyone making a mini-pc board with an 8+ core processor, preferably with thunderbolt. I've checked Intel, Zotac, Gigabyte, and Newegg and haven't been able to find anything with more than 4 cores. I'm trying to build a small business server with an identical copy at home for redundancy. The idea is the NUC with 2 external drive boxes sitting on top of it. The demands on it won't be too great, just office files, web server, and e-mail server. However, I want as many cores as I can get because I effectively want it to run 2 VMs, one for personal stuff and one for business stuf
  5. Pretty much what the title says. So far the only laptop I've been able to verify has the 25W version of the 1065G7 is the Razer Stealth.
  6. I'd like to thank everyone for their time, it seems I am looking for something more unique than I was expecting. While still unimpressed by the Thinkpad keyboard, I am getting accustomed to it. So I'll be keeping the P1.
  7. Interesting. I thought the MX250 was just a rebadged 150, I'll have to look more at it. I've repasted a laptop before, but I have a problem in principle with doing it on something brand new, still under warranty.
  8. It's not necessarily that I won't accept a 1080p display, but only if everything else is perfect. I would not accept a Lenovo notebook with a 1080p display; resolution aside, everything else about them is sub-par. Hell, I'm running my current 4K display at 1080p to reduce system thermals and fan noise (if only by 5C). I also don't necessarily need eGPU, but I'm already invested in it. Besides, I'm already invested in Thunderbolt storage and dock so Thunderbolt is a necessity even without using an eGPU. So if there is a notebook with a GPU better than the P2000 (equivalent to a
  9. That notebook looks great, but it wasn't just because of the the brand that I dismissed it. The MX 150 only has 2GB of VRAM, which gives me issues with some models. Also, IMO, super low end GPUs like that take more in battery life and price than they add in capability - not that battery life matters to me personally - this notebook uses the 10W version of the MX 150, not the 25W version, quite misleading on Huawei's part. The same hardware is also available in the ThinkPad T480, but with the full 25W SKU. Dig deeper into the ownership of Huawei. The largest shareholder is Shenz
  10. I don't really care about weight, dimensions are more important to me: 15" x 10" x 1" is plenty small for me. Frankly, there isn't a notebook on the market today that I consider to not be sufficiently portable due to the weight, it's all about the dimensions to me. Minimum battery life is also not important to me - if I can get 4 hours, I'm happy. I won't be away from an outlet long using it, but I need to use it in multiple locations frequently.
  11. Use cases for this computer: Part time Engineering student Part time software developer Amateur writer E-sports games on the go, have an eGPU for single player games at home Hardware I think I need: At least 4 cores, 8 threads - peak single core performance is more important than all core load for CAD and compilation, but I need the threads for VMs and games that refuse to work with low thread counts. Better than integrated graphics with at least 4 GB of VRAM - an RX 460/560 or GTX 1050 is enough, Intel Iris graphics is probably good enough. At l
  12. I know that, it just bothers me that they're exactly the same silicon, just with different power delivery. Jurrino got it right though, Kaby Lake R is still on 14nm+, not ++. I was asking precisely because your answer was not satisfactory because they've never used different names for mobile cores.
  13. Ok, so these are both based on the 14++ nm process, both are architecturally identical to Skylake and regular Kaby Lake. Both include identical designs to previous generations (Coffee Lake i3 is the same spec as Skylake i5, Kaby Lake R is the same as Skylake-H i7). So why do they have different names, I'm struggling to figure this out and it's triggering my autism. Is it just Intel's marketing intentionally trying to be confusing as usual? Edit: I know the products are targeted at different TDP ranges, but they've never segmented like this before.
  14. I used to have a 13.3" convertible Ultrabook - an Acer Aspire R13 - I notice no difference carrying it compared to my current 15.6" notebook - a Precision 3510. I guess if you want to carry it in a satchel or purse 15.6" might be too big, but in a backpack it's just fine.
