    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..

    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

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).

    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 ...

    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

    Aint it something any fw upfate from MS could implement.. afteral it would not be that big a hurdle for an OS to sense when your doing what, browsing on known browsers, gaming , encoding etc and simply some algorithmes that sense for triggers.... or has Microsoft simply outsource that AI-feature as a cash cow.

    Okay I realize he didn't want to speculate (and also probably enjoyed ragging on them a bit)
    But does he really expect us to believe it took him testing and documentation to figure out what their "A.I." does?
    I figured it out watching their CES video.
    You can literally find my comments on that video explaining EXACTLY what that Ai does and why there was no difference between two laptops on chargers, which btw is because the power performance settings usually max out if its not on battery power.
    I refuse to believe that Linus is actually dumb enough to have not figured out on his own AT THE SHOW what the Ai is supposed to do.

    I just got an Eluktronics Mech17 for $1599. 8750H, full RTX 2070, only 8GB ram and 128GB ssd but easily upgradable to 16GB and 1.1TB for about $150. Also has mechanical keyboard. Would love to hear what Linus thinks of these. All the negative points he mentions about the Aero seem to be much better on the Mech17. It is loud though...
