just 5 TB? exactly, go big or go home!
Given you own a "thin and light" laptop and continuously stress it what do you think about the battery concerns mentioned in this thread?
So not what the asus zephyrus did?
Haha. It looks like their trying an any cost not to have a vent open directly on anywhere someone's legs might be
Thought the point of that was to direct most of the airflow over that bottom cover. Making vents in a location that won't be blocked by a user's legs is likely a side effect.
I don't worry about battery inflation as much as I worry about battery capacity degradation.
Which is why I cap the maximum battery charge to 70-80% so the battery degrades slower. Besides, a partially charged battery also degrades slower compared to a fully charged one at higher temperatures.
Excellent. Makes sense

Looks like this laptop is aching for modification...
Heat isnt great for a battery, but not the main reason why batteries can go bad and swell.
In general it a bad battery design where they are holding a too high charge (to boost capacity) and cheap battery chemistry. The battery temps in the Zephyrus G series look pretty okay based on the ultrabookreview site. I have seen m much higher in machines where the batteries did last for years. Razer had the same issue for years, even in their Ultrabook lineup which dont run that hot.
I am spending pretty much all my off time on gaming, music production etc. Pretty serious about gaming I would say. But still doing it on a 15inch thin n light. Why? I want my laptop always with me when I go to work and or to other countries. I want all data with me without constantly lugging around 3KG of laptop weight. The bit lower framerate (but still around 80~90fps on 1440P in 80% of the games that I play) is fine for me).
Yeah that's a pretty good reason to go for a thin and light. What music do you make BTW
