  1. That'll all be up to silicon lottery and how good your temps and such are.
  2. Neither will be especially good at gaming. Intel integrated graphics are pretty crap tier. The /terrible/ GT1030 from NVidia That was a joke when it came out? is STILL BETTER than the intel XE Integrated graphics.
  3. So, real specs: Intel i5-10500H: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/201905/intel-core-i5-10500h-processor-12m-cache-up-to-4-50-ghz.html Intel i7-1165G7: https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/208921/intel-core-i7-1165g7-processor-12m-cache-up-to-4-70-ghz-with-ipu.html The i5 has 2 more cores, higher TDP, Higher Bus Speed The i7 has: Slightly higher Clock Speeds, Lower TDP, Better Graphics (XE instead of UHD) So, in most cases? The i5 will be a more powerful chip. (Also, as mentioned elsewhere
  4. no, your userbenchmark screenshot had a 10500. Not a 10500H, they're two different chips. The non-H is a desktop chip.
  5. Even a power gimped i7 on a modern laptop should still trump a 3 year old laptop's performance. Unless they went from i7's to i5's or something
  6. assuming your motherboard works with them properly, yes. There are motherboard settings SSDs need to work right.
  7. And on most laptops that's an utterly insane thing to attempt to setup. There is no way to go from inside to outside the laptop case.
  8. Outside of Thunderbolt, there are no external interfaces on a PC or Laptop with enough bandwidth to do this.
  9. So this specific model has 2 RAM Slots, so upgrading to 8GB would be pretty cheap. (But I will say this is an ANNOYING teardown to do. Thanks for the easy maintenance, HP!) Given the difficulty of opening it up? I'd only do it if you're gonna do a full maintenance: Heatsink / Fan Cleaning, RAM Upgrade and HDD to SSD swap. This isn't a laptop to just open on a whim.
  10. what CPU Cooler is it? First checks could include: See if there's a BIOS Update to fix the glitch? Try the fan in a regular fan header instead?
  11. it's not a picture. If you post a link to Youtube, Reddit, or several other destinations, it embeds the media in your post.
  12. use HWInfo or other tool to check temps, if they're not too high, you're probably fine. If they look a bit toast? Add an intake.
  13. That doesn't make sense? User Friendly is a positive. There's absolutely nothing wrong with running Windows. Over the last 5-10 years MS has made dramatic improvements across both the Desktop and Server OSs in order to stay relevant. Got a secondary box you're just using a HyperV CPU and RAM help? Install CLI Server, and have no GUI overhead. Got an embedded system that you need an OS that is easy to remote manage? Win 10 IoT Installs are totally a thing. Are there benefits to Linux or other OSs in certain circumstances? Sure.
