    Out of curiosity, how does the 2019 version compare to the 2018 and what was the price of the tester in the video?

      For starters they put the camera on top, so that’s a huge improvement.

    Should I get the Huawei Matebook X Pro, Dell XPS 15, or Asus Zenbook 15? I think they are all about 1,300 USD, but they have some spec differences. Dell has best CPU and GPU, but only 8gb of ram. Asus has the 2nd best CPU and GPU with 16gb of ram. Huawei has the worst CPU and GPU but 16gb ram, best speakers, and my favorite design.

      Daniel Wang it definitely happened to us, but it might because he bought it in China

      +Nathan Chiang are u sure? How come no reviewers have mentioned this?

    • Nathan Chiang
      Nathan Chiang Month ago

      Daniel Wang because Huawei tends to bring in some software that China makes and isn’t allowed in some places like North America. And also China blocks a bunch of stuff too, it will still be blocked in other places. Things like google, TVclip, etc might not work. My friend had one and we tried to work with it but we had to use Bing to search up stuff

    When I click the very top/tip of the screen with my finger it does a little clicky sound, like it is not 100 percent stable. It is very subtle and not that noticeable but is that normal? I was guessing it is from constantly closing the laptop. It only does it when I click/ put pressure on the top of the screen, and not any other sides

    How about Dell XPS or Precision 5530 with Ubuntu? XPS seems to be trapped with the Killer wifi card soldered on, wonder if anyone here tested the 9370 or 9380 model, or how about the 5530 with Linux preinstalled, how is the trackpad, battery lift (with 97wh battery), thx in advance!

    it's slow, it's windows, it's plastic and it's £1299 with a 4K display, not worth the price, I could buy a faster macbook with MacOS for this price and its would run Windows bootcamp too

  • Oliversfilmsdotcom Films

    £899 for 27 watts, just buy a £700 PC and an equivalent spec £199 laptop.

    I'm currently in the market for a new laptop, and I'm down to the XPS 13 9370 and the LG Gram 13Z980-U.AAW5U1. You've done a video on both of these or a slightly different model, so if you have a recommendation, it would be greatly appreciated. I don't need too much power so just the i5 will be perfectly fine, I'm mainly looking at the other aspects of the laptops such as weight, build quality, etc. Since you've used both these devices, I'd thought you might have a good recommendation. Thanks!

    I'm struggling so much with deciding which laptop I should get for myself...I'm a student so often using word and powerpoint, other than that of course Netflix and - that is the important part - photoshop. Editing photos and therefor having a good display performance is really important to me. Currently the ones I tend to are the Dell XPS 13, the new Macbook Air and the microsoft surface laptop 2. Does anyone have a recommendation for me?
