    What are the m1 and m2 keys for? When I click them nothing happens.

    So I ordered the new Y740 15" with i7-9750H, 1660ti, and new 500 nit display. Got a wicked deal on it so I will compare it against my current Y740 (i7-8750H, 2060) and see how it is! I tend to play more CPU intensive games like Division 2, Anthem, Wildlands, etc so the 5% decrease from the 2060 to the 1660ti may be offset by the 10% increase of the i7-9750H over the i7-8750H. We shall see!

    Just do me a favour. Run both in ultra preset in dx12 and let me know the FPS difference both on maximum fan mode. That’s a MUST. Want to gauge how much of an increase the the 9750h can give (somewhat) conclusively.
    Edit: also do a screen side by side comparison of the brightness. Need to see what this 500nits is about. I know the 300 isn’t that bright compared to what I’ve had but never had 400+

    Definitely intend on doing just that. Don't have a shipping date yet but I'll keep you posted on when I get the chance to compare them.

    Does anyone have the issue with their Y740 (my model is the 8750h 2070mq) where the backlight brightness will dim to half or so when the computer boots up from cold on the lockscreen? Once you login if you tap brightness up the slider shows it's at max and you have to tap brightness down, then brightness up for it to raise back to normal levels. Its had the same backlight behavior in all the bios that they have released.

    Hey all you 740ies. Need your expertise here once again. You've been life-savers thus far with all your great advice. My first stop for advice I'll confirm.

    So I have a Samsung Odessey+ VR HMD which has shorter cords than I prefer. Need to extend them a little. So I've done some research and have found and an 8-foot Accell USB-C VR adapter which I will link below. But in order for this to work I need to confirm if the USB-C port on my y740 is connected directly to the rtx 2060 or is it connected directly to intel's integrated GPU. If it's connnected to the intel GPU this won't work for me.

    I've taken this information below directly from Accell's website which mentions that the y520 and y530 are compatable but stops short of mentioning the y740.
