    GUYS I NEED HELP…To be honest i won't really use the graphic cards true potential. Need a laptop for the next 4 years. Plus this stealth is now $1400.

    What do you think of the Yoga C930 (2019) & Xps 13 (2019)… 16GB RAM, 512SSD, 4K Touch as other options?

  • Reply [The] White Rabbit August 30, 2019 at 7:23 pm

    I would use autohotkey to swap the up and shift, and then additionally I would physically remove the keys and swap them.

  • Reply [The] White Rabbit August 30, 2019 at 7:24 pm

    People complain so hard about him switching when he says he isn't. But fail to realize he probably got it for free, so why not. But also, these videos are for us. He says it's not worth it for us, those who are might spend almost 2 grand for a laptop.

  • Reply André Gouveia September 8, 2019 at 2:58 am

    Totally agree, Razer products are very expensive and not worth it, I regretted the day I bought a razer mouse, much more expensive than a Logitech and after 1 year stopped working, then started a game with the support of razer, that so far has not come to ANYTHING! Pay dearly for it? Not worth it.

  • Reply d.ronzo17 September 9, 2019 at 11:43 am

    Sorry Razer, I'm not switching as well, primarily because I don't have money.

    Linus, I want to buy a Razer and have for many years. Top 2 things for me portability and power. Primary use Game Development in less than idea environments,13in or 15in max does Razer have a device for me? Or should I just go surface book/ surface pro and take my mom out for lunch?

    RAZER REVIEWS

    Do not buy from Razer, you are better off getting alienware Area 51m.
    Same portability, better power, better quality than razer. I have bought
    two laptops from this company now, and they were absolute garbage. The
    first one had to be replaced due to it suddenly going dead at 2 days
    old. The pc shut down when I was playing a game, and then it would not
    turn back on. Luckily they actually replaced it, but now this is my
    second laptop I buy from the store, because I didn't learn my lesson the
    first time, 2019, about a month old and on day two I get a blue screen
    of death crash the system needs to restart and the screen keeps
    glitching. I contacted support (luckily I bought a 340$ warranty for
    this mind you on my 2,000 laptop) and they first wanted to make sure
    "the drivers are updated). after following all their instructions I
    updated everything, and then the laptop now overheats to the point that I
    worry the stuff inside is getting damaged. Both of these products were
    TRASH. And they take FOREVER to respond. I am really upset because I
    liked the logo of the company, but it is just not worth being a faithful
    customer, since their products are just trash, at least where gaming
    pcs are concerned…

Linus just gave to the special magic sauce to making THE BEST LAPTOP FOR FREEE!!! he should have to charged you a million. Seriously his advice here is worth every penny.
