    Maybe it's just me and maybe I'm cynical, but I think that those who purchase Apple products get precisely what they deserve.

    Hey, I just noticed you are running hyperx impact 2666mhz ram. Could you do me a favor and screenshot all the ram timings in either CPU -z or aida64 please? i'm going to try to push my hyperx impact 2400mhz ram to 2666mhz but I need the general timings to enter into my bios. Would be a great help!

    Navigate to Motherboard > Memory and you'll see the timings.

    I need all the timings. I have the timings for 2400mhz, I need the timings for 2666mhz. They can be found in aida64/cpu-z. Here is an example.

    The report only shows the primary timings for all the speeds. I need the primary and secondary timings to have a general baseline to work with. If you have Aida64, please screenshot them and post it. I will forever send good vibes your way :)

    My apologies.

    I'll attach them as soon as the Q6 is up and running.

    Sometimes, I'm amazed at how far we've come in terms of hardware and performance. And at the same time, baffled at the number of steps backwards that laptop OEMs and ODMs take to cripple and overprice their hardware.

    This is truly a battle for excellence, fought in inches.

    A few highlights:

    (a). Webcams: To what deity must we sacrifice virgins to to get anything slightly above mediocre when it comes to webcams (and webcam placements)?

    (b). On upgradeability: BGA isn't a viable upgrade path. BGA makes no sense whatsoever. It's wasteful, environmentally and financially. The same applies to GPUs. We have MXM, a standard that every vendor SHOULD have implemented BY NOW. Why solder **** to motherboards? What does that save you, as an OEM/ODM? Processor and GPU sockets? Solder? Manufacturing costs?

    (c). On cooling: Few, if at all, any Coffeelake-based mobile SKUs can maintain their rated performance on most systems available now. At this rate, you have to wonder: What quantifies as an upgrade, selling new hardware or a constant, noteworthy improvement to both build quality and performance? Taking one as a trade-off for the other is moronic.

    **** this.
