After watching your video I've compared the three devices and ended purchasing the Aero 15-X9 But I've paid around 2660$ :( in order to get it as I live far from the USA I've chosen the I7 processor as I don't think a unit this thin will be able to cool the I9 pretty well, so no actual gain. For the graphics, I think RTX-2070 is enough since I'm a developer and a casual gamer so no need to pay more for the RTX-2080. For the screen also I think UHD for development is not meaningful :/ Finally for the performance!!!??? I told you I'm far away from the USA so waiting for it to arrive in order to know :)

There is a possibility that there is a software application that provides the same features like the so-called "AI." Just wished I knew the name of such an app.

Its screen and quality is much better than razer blade has. Check out amazon reviews on real customers of razer blade - noise whine + shitty screen and shitty battery, no pros at all comparable to Aero. Also Dell design is garbage, no minimalism. So why you saying its better to buy razer/dell?

Is there a reason why touch pads aren't slightly more to the right? My MSI Gaming Laptop has the touch pad more to the middle of the laptop, which I find really nice since I use it for both gaming and work and I tend to accidentally touch with my palm and quite often randomly pick stuff up or move code in chunks somewhere it certainly shouldn't be with other Laptop, but having it under the left palm is very common..

So, move the webcam to the top, make the battery 99Wh battery, make an AMD version, and tone down the AI drivel?

I love how a current i7 is essentially the power equivalent of what would be a hypothetical two generations ago i9 or even better, and yet both i7's are "more than capable to handle whatever you throw at it." It's not a knock on any one person or reviewer, I just think the culture of it all is funny

you bunch of junk. you are all just pinheads here. a Picasso knows much less than you or slower than you but he is greater than any of you. it is because of what he does. and making a movie is so easy. I like it. I dont like knowing your stuff. I just like playing games on a very good set. just one of the least things that I like.

I hardly ever use a webcam. But there are times when I just need a webcam. It doesn't matter if it sucks, but I just need something. If someone had to use a decent webcam regularly they wouldn't be satisfied with the built-in webcam anyways. Unless they spent a lot of money on the webcam, which simply isn't worth it since hardly anyone will use the webcam regularly anyways. Integrating some kind of webcam for as cheaply as possible is good enough for most people, while not including it would probably cut down on sales. I know I'm not going to buy it if it doesn't include a webcam (unless the thing is far better than any other competition in the same price range).

So AI detects a hotter CPU and revs up the fans. I get it. Very advanced.
a4tech79 Il y a 2 mois
they are so wrong about ppl spending 2-4000USD on a laptop and don't touch the fans. They are also wrong about their build and the hardware selection. a throttled 8950HK and a Max-Q basically running like a 2009 laptop. Waste of time, waste of money. GG no re ... MSI GE75 2080 lightest desktop gpu laptop FTW !

I wonder why they even bother with webcam and mic if the only reason someone would use them is to make fun of the poor quality and placemet. It just makes the laptop feel more bloaded than the pseudo OS it comes preinstalled with. Companies should adopt the do-it-right-or-not-at-all mindset...

Honestly Linus? Most of people who buys a laptop like that only cares about weight, dimensions, screen quality, keyboard, touch pad(if even, most of people have a wireless mouse), battery life, and performance, stop BRAGGING about the fucking WEBCAM. No one cares about it, no one uses it anymore, and even if someone would want to use it, most of the people have a 20+ dollars webcam that is going to be a whole mile better than even the BEST pre-installed laptop webcam. It is there just because it always has been there. And it's placement is there just because if you want to have these slim bezels, that are the same on all 3 sides, is a sacrifice that you have to make, if you don't want to see a notch, or a punch hole in the laptop

GlassWire: get an infinite "Connecting to Local Server." after purchasing a year of subscription. Wish Linus never advertised that shit. If you want to waste money for nothing, you now know how.
