  • YES i feel like screaming at them make a 1440p laptop screen.. like.. you remember back when EVERY SINGLE LAPTOP was coming out with a 1366x768 screen and if i saw it in a review it was INSTANTLY CLOSED because it was SHIT. it's exactly like that.

  • Had the same epiphany. Returned it to Bestbuy the same day.

  • MVMT watches are shit!

  • i mean for a laptop, do you even need more than 1080p? sure, i wouldnt say no to 1440p but id settle for a laptop with a snappy enough cpu of the latest gen and a cpu that can handle max 1080p gaming. maybe at around 900 dollars depending on the build quality. and i believe that would cover quite a bit part of the market

  • why not switch to apple macbook pro 16

  • It’s a shame that the blade sacrifices performance for style when it comes to the GPU. Using MaxQ cards in a gaming laptop is bound to drive buyers away. It sure did for me. I paid 40% less than this for the same specs but a 2080 non maxQ and a 144hz 1080p screen. I still get the great thermals but I have a full keyboard and more performance for far, far less money. MSI Raider 85G

  • Clevo? When i bought mine there was an option to go 1440p but went for the 144hz 1080 instead. It is there!

  • Razerblade best gaming laptop period.

  • Why does Linus complain about the arrow keys so much. Ive never used the right shift key once

  • But you need to charge the watch

  • I'd like to play games on 2160p at 120hz

  • THE THE?? Shuddup!!!! Luv yah!

  • I just use external batteries now when I need it, so I have rather good cooling to.


  • The comment about 1440p is right on target. If they made a 15 inch 1440p 120hz laptop, I would be all over that in a heartbeat. Alienware? Razer? Asus? You listening ?

  • Oh shit Linus not my pocket

  • MVMT watches are cheaply made Chinese watches plz dont buy without doing REAL research

  • The lack of a TPM on this thing is the worst thing in the world. They cost about $20 and have the potential to massively increase the security of the device

  • i would buy a 1440p one, the one i have now is giving me issues its a alienware

  • Razer doesn't seem to understand basic longevity or practicality

  • Yeah, I knew this w as s not gonna work

  • 1440p solution: call 1440p super HD.

  • Not only laptops... I mean, 1440p is great resolution ever for desktop monitors :)

  • This dude is never happy with ANYTHING!!!!!

  • Knowing Better did a good video on 4K, and while it's definitely possible to see the difference between 1080 and 4K, you definitely can't perceive the full difference, like you can between 720 and 1080 - somewhere between 1080 and 4K is a point where the screen has more pixels than your eyes have light receptors. Even under absolutely ideal conditions, once you go above that level of resolution, your eyes can no longer tell any difference.

  • Can you run it in a single-cable clean build through Thunderbolt?

  • But... Lenovo D:

  • 16:10 with perfect glossy 120hz 10bit oled without crappy touchscreen... not the crappy oled like the one on thinkpad p1

  • Nice movie at the beginning 5 out of 5 would see again

  • I hate the number pad, so much so that I refuse to own a laptop that has them. I can't think of a single usage for creators or gamers. If I was working with Excel, imputing in numbers all day, sure, it's a valuable accessory, even than though, I would rather plug in a full size mechanical keyboard.
