    Pretty sure this is the same panel and based on the reviews mentioned in the video below, the color accuracy is pretty poor and not much better even if calibrated. Really want this screen/ laptop for content creation/ graphic design and it seems super promising, however unless I see otherwise as more reviews come out, the color accuracy thing is a deal breaker.

    Check laptopmag’s review of the 15” Spectre x360 OLED. If factory calibrated it seems you can have great color accuracy with this panel.

    So over at bestware, I can get the 8th gen version for £150 less than the 9tb gen version. Is it worth it? Cause of all these new exploits, I was wondering if the 9th gen was protected from them and wouldn't have to disable hyper threading to protect against it.

    Fundamentally the base silicon of 8th and 9th gen is extremely similar.

    I just left Microcenter and had a good look at their new inventory.

    Having reviewed this laptop from HID I was quite surprised just how much cheaper the look and feel of the Powerspec 1520 and 1720 were.

    Not that their current $1399/1499 price tag isn’t solid.

    It’s all plastic, grey, with an orange trim.

    If you want to a hit a price point there is always some compromise.

    I do kind of like the orange trim though. And im usually against the 'gamer' look.

    I had no idea there was that big of difference between the HID and Powerspec’s in terms of build quality.

    Just left Best Buy after looking at the 4K OLED panel on the HP and am pretty disappointed. Saturation on colors was disgusting! I was hoping for an accurate display out of the box but the colors are way too much.

    Due to the expense usually factory calibration is kept to specific devices.

    Hey @Meaker@Sager, are you guys not stocking the PB51RF-G? I can find it on some resellers’ storefronts but not on my usual stores who source through Sager. The 17-inch Gsync ones are there though, and I’m pretty sure some European stores have the -G listed. Coming soon? Maybe the demand isn’t there?
