  1. Yall ever heard about 720p ? this laptop kills it at 1280x720p and with the screen size youre getting the same level of picture quality as if you were playing on a 24" 1080p screen, you know… switch to 720p, max out those settings, enjoy better fps, better graphical fidelity and sometimes even much better temps 🙂

  2. At 9:06 he says that if you need performance + portability, this notebook is a good call. If you can sacrifice one, there are other cheaper alternatives. I do not need the performance (dedicated GPU), but wanted something like this:
    – 16gb RAM
    – i5 / i7 preferably 8th gen or newer
    – great display w/ display ratio 16:10 or 3:2, but 16:9 is still ok
    – full hd at a minimum, more would be better but not necessary
    – integrated intel uhd 620 or MX250 maximum
    – 3 pounds maximum weight
    – 14" would be great
    I don't care for touchscreen, 2-in-1 notebooks, etc.
    If anybody has a suggestion, please send them my way!

  3. In this case, I'd get the 15 inch. I would want a dedicated gpu, but the all day battery is hard to loose. If a gpu in this version lowers the battery to the other systems, it's just better to have the 15 inch.

  4. Need some quick help if possible. Just got a stealth 13 late 2019. when I shut down the laptop both usb ports stay "hot". When I shut down and there's something still plugged into the usb a port or ports they continue to either charge (if it's a phone) or recieve power if it's a flash or usb drive. This happens only after the unit has been powered on already then shut down. If I plug a device in while it's been shut down already no power is going to the usb ports. This was alarming when I first discovered this after waking up in the morning after it was shut down all night (yes it was fully shut down) and the flash drive (san disk Extreme 500) was extremely hot. After noticing this I realized the other issues with phone charging etc. I don't know if this is faulty hardware or just software glitch but I've gone through all the power settings and usb settings and nothing fixes this. Anybody know anything about this? I'm about to exchange for another one, but if this is the normal behavior I'm going to return it for refund. Thanks! Sorry for the long explanation, but think it's important to note.

  5. The right shift key wouldn't be an issue for me, I've always been a left shifter, the only aspect Mavis Beacon failed me in. Otherwise I'd totally get this laptop. If I didn't already own a blade 17 pro. Though I would like something more portable for on the go so I don't have to undock my blade 17.

  6. I swear to god that stupid shift key is the only reason I'm apprehensive about getting this laptop. I'm afraid they'll never change their arrow key placement, and that I'll never get a Razer Blade because of it…

  7. What a wimp. I use a 40% keyboard that doesn't even have a right shift button, nor a fn row, number row, numpad or some symbol keys, you need to use the FN modifiers to get to them. Custom built mechanical keyboard by MiniVan keyboards. If you can't learn to type with a single shift button you are the bad typist. I can hit upwards of 100 wpm no errors (yes I practice in typing apps too) and I don't chicken peck at the keys. The full size arrows are probably the main reason I want this device. They didn't come up with a dumb idea, it's very common in the compact mechanical keyboard market so it makes sense they would borrow it. There is a learning curve, yes, but I would rather a full size set of navigation arrows than a duplicate of a key with so little room. It's practically a waste of space to have two of the same buttons on a compact keyboard. Also, the smaller enter and backspace are very common in the 40% keyboard community. Ya'll should check them out if your into tech which you all are. Even some of the 60% sized keyboards are doing away with the right shift in place of full size arrows or to accommodate a function button where this right shift is. This ignorant rant by Linus is the exact reason I stopped watching this channel, I just so happened to watch most of the other Blade reviews so I thought why not check this one out, 'he couldn't have been as dumb as I remember him right?", well wrong, same ignorant complaints about something he doesn't even know about. His reviews are way to opinionated and acts like his small gripes make a product horrible. There are other people in the world with their own preferences, you know that right… Don't ignorantly say you must be a bad typist if you don't need the right shift key when you don't even know the first thing about custom keyboards and their layouts that often lack a right shift key….. Can ya'll tell that Linus gets me gassed up. Do some research for once man.

  8. I usually lock my fps to what ever my displays refresh rate is maybe even lower so like for 60hz I lock it to 60fps, 144hz I lock it at 140fps. IDK why, and I don't know if it is right but I just do.
