    But I'm looking to spend less than $1000, and hoping for 17". That really limits my options right now. I probably won't buy until April or so (my understanding is that prices drop in April).

    I kinda wish laptop pricing just for specific parts wasn't that ridiculous. Desktop variations of the 1050 and 1050ti have a $20-30 difference. This is what makes gaming laptops have such a bad rep in the PC Gaming community, so sad. I'm not hating on gaming laptops, but that's a bit too much to ask for on a laptop. I seriously don't want to see gaming laptops get worse with this, I hope it does grow despite me getting into building a desktop soon.

    I like it when sites bench the different vRAM version of cards. These days though 2GB is simply too small. 1050 is by no means a major performer, but it's still decent and 2GB will only cripple its performance even more. With the low cost of vRAM these day, slower and less capacity especially, I don't understand why any manufacturer would go with 2GB over 4GB. I'd even venture to say 6GB is minimum these days.

    Yeah, the 2gb is really borderline. 4gb should be standard by now.

    Btw. here is also a video of a laptop 1050 4gb vs 4gb Ti. It's almost always 10 fps slower than the Ti (or the exact 20% due to 640 cores vs 768 cores).


    Unfortunately we have no test showing all 3 cards (2gb, 4gb, 4gb Ti) side by side. One can only guess based on the polish website that the 2gb is an additional 3-8 frames less than the 4gb non-Ti.
