Linus you forget not all regions carry the 17 inch model

 

The highest in Asia is only the 15 Inch model and comes with a GTX960M 4GB GDDR5 still OK for light to med gaming

Budget? Uses? Currency? Location? Operating System? Peripherals? Monitor? Use PCPartPicker wherever possible.

I can somewhat tell you that the convertible laptop idea sounds nice and all, but it's kind of useless. Speaking from experience, my TP300LA might be able to fold into a tablet, but I only did that back when it was running 8.1. Now, I mostly use the 2 in 1 part for the touchscreen, which can feel more natural to use than the touchpad. 

We're all weird. Just in our own, unique way.

I've never really gotten the purpose of 17 inch laptops. They're too huge to be portable. The only use case is if you work on the road a lot and want something to use in say, your hotel room to do proper work. But i'm not sure you'd be buying a laptop of this class if that was the case.

I have the 13" version, and even then the tablet made is unwieldy. However, every other aspect is pretty good, especially the temperature. Battery life is good, as well. It could be a good choice for a student needing a bit more power than that Chromebook.

no thanks on the big laptops.. I had a 17" XP Media Center Edition HP back in the day.. and it was beastly at the time with its 540m quadro gpu :) .. never again though... i am now of the mind that properly cooled, thin, and light laptops are best for me (preferably with touch) .. if I need to game or serve up media? desktop is my recommendation ;)

"What else people even do on tablets?"

Well mostly the thing you haven't mentioned, as in browsing, which is really convenient on a good tablet, while you're not at a desk. Mind you, not on a 17'' ones... which happen to be a laptop. 

The ability to google properly is a skill of its own.

Why the hate for USB 2? It is much better in the terms of compatibility, much less driver dependant and the only downside is the speed. When something just refuses to work, the last thing you care about is the speed.

With the lack of optical mechanics and easily removable HDDs, USB 2.0 is gr8. Having to unscrew the bottom of laptop, just to get to the HDD and placing the basic files with OS there stinks and some peripherals hate 3.0 even with drivers. To add to that, peripheral manufacturers often don´t really care about Linux and you could be just stuck.

Sure, most ppl don´t use Linux, but the guy who is trying to fix it will, and this saves a lot of time.

USB 2 and mouses are best combo ;) (USB 3.0 seems to add a tiny bit of input lag or something from my experience...)

Looking at my signature are we now? Well too bad there's nothing here...

17" tablet computer... no thank you. Just watched the video and well it looks like a product that target's a specific audience, little kids that wants to play angry birds on a 17" screen. Damnit, Dell I thought you were better than this. While the idea sounds good on paper, kinda, the execution is piss poor. Also the USB 2.0 thing is funny.
