Seriously, no matter where I look, I can't seem to find a more suitable windows laptop than the dell xps 15" 7590 32gb ram, i9 9880hk, gtx 1650 and 1tb ssd and awesome oled screen. Well, actually, I'm currently thinking about which to get. Seems the IPS 4k suffers from less issues than the oled but the oled is just so damn gorgeous... Sigh. I wish I could get at least a 2060 gtx as well but sadly that's but a dream in this chassis, the parts are already pushing the limit and only through undervolting will I be able to achieve decent temps.

Video idea: Show. how to fix the touch screen disappearing driver issue in hp all in one pc's. After it does a system up date the driver disappears and it appears to be impossible to fix with out purchasing the reinstall disc according to HP(But in my case even after re installing windows and restoring to factory condition, still did not fix the driver issue). Would be a good video to show a fix for since its HP's fault and they make you pay to fix it.

Why on Earth didn't he go with either of the 13in MacBook Pros? They're both less expensive than the Razer and fix one of the two problems he had with the Air and include a better screen, speakers, and gaming quality.

all bad computers and overpriced but im not an american so i dont live my life being extorted, you should buy LENOVO for a third the price, same quality. Also all those computers are very thind, meaning they are very fragile, so if you are expecting to carry your laptop in a backpack, dont.

Seriously the channel is called Linus tec tips you have 30 - 35 year old virgins running around Linus media group and none of you can open a razor and fix a power adapter? At least look at it. Could be as easy as a cold solder joint or broken board trace you. Come on ppl get ur shit together!
