    Exactly. A huge leaps above Turing:vbbiggrin: Nvidia... Yoo failed!! And the OEMS is damn happy. This means it will be easier promoting next gen (Nvidia) gaming laptops.

    Yeah what makes it worse that the laptop itself costs $2500 which the average cost of a RTX 3080 laptop and customers are getting ripped off because they thought they're buying the best but instead they're getting lesser performance at a higher cost. You would expect it to beat a RTX 2080 Super Max-Q but it doesnt come close to it even at 90W... I think OEMs are trying to get customers on QHD/Thin and light hype train.

    That's the Apple mentality where buyers are more interested in how the computer looks rather than performs. The Apple formula also suggests that more expensive somehow implies better performance. Visit the Legion 5 thread where performance is balanced with cost without any Nvidia smoke and mirrors.

    Is that what it is? I figured it was more of a social standing like how phones are these days.

    Maybe amongst kids; in my age group a condo in Lahina, GT3, etc, that says money. A phone doesn't say anything at all. Then again in my age group phone complaints largely consist of them making them too thin to comfortably hold. I think I would have traded thinner for more battery ten years ago but they just kept getting even thinner. Sounds familiar, doesn't it... o_O

    Hmm.... not sure about that analogy.

    https://www.buyacar.co.uk/cars/4x4-cars/407/four-wheel-drive-cars-explained

    "The extra mechanical parts needed for a four-wheel drive car increases its weight, which means that you need a little more power - and fuel - when driving."

    LOL yeah I'd say thin and light more like 2wd, you mostly don't need 4wd in normal usage but the higher abilities of 4wd is worth it depending on what your desired usage or needs are. City all weather driving with some light camping summer mostly flat road and hard dirt: 2wd fine.

    I dont think anyone here is advocating otherwise....

    ...we are just complaining about the lack of tires.
