    So you got a new panel w/o additional charges? That sounds great!

    They have a 2.5% discount for specific forms of payment and a $20 to $30 dollar NBR forums discount depending on if you spend under $2000 or over $2000, respectively that can be stacked. They do not price match against other retailers, nor do they price match individual components/parts. To be honest, (speaking of panels) their $100 price for picking the best of the bunch (top 20%) of all screens for back light bleed is overpriced for any laptop, but they pride themselves in the value they offer as Phoenix mentioned, so as such they don't offer to negotiate prices or haggle unfortunately.

    Just got off the phone with Donald from HID. Talk about great customer service. He talked me through all the options I should add and which ones would be a waste of money for my uses. Definitely a top notch knowledgable guy.

    I will definitely be purchasing my laptop from HID.

    Awesome, see? it's not always about the money. I'd happily pay a few bucks more for good customer service and transparency.

    Post your question in this thread along with your choice of laptop manufacturers. Set your budget, tasks you'd perform on your PC (Multimedia, gaming etc) and tag Donald using @ symbol.
    You can visit Hidevolution and select your config, thermal paste, screen calibration etc...
    If you want to fix all thermal issues with laptop(s) from factory HIDEVOLUTION is the best. They do sell MSI, AW, Clevos too. I hope @Donald@HIDevolution can help you choosing the right laptop/DTR laptop.
    If you're on the go gamer, then F5 tornado is the best choice. HIDEVOLUTION even added @Mr. Fox 's mod to enhance the cooling of F5 tornado.

    What he said. HIDevolution rocks.

    Please don't buy a Dellienware or other castrated disposable BGA abortion. The 16L-G-1080 is the only 15 inch that is any good and P870KM1 is the only 17 inch that is any good.

    You're welcome.

    You could say BGA is aborted brother of LGA.

    But retarded baby sister would be more accurate. If it was aborted we would no longer have it. It would be dead. Either one is a heartbreaking tragedy. The conception never should have happened. The people designing garbage need to be introduced to birth control, but considering the kind of filth they have produced, abstinence and celibacy would be more appropriate in their case.
