  1. Past hour
  2. I’d get the MSI, but I’ve stopped caring about screen resolution a while back, that’s hardly a demerit at all in my book. I’ve also owned MSI before, and would do so again.
  3. Today
  4. Given your use cases, either machine would work well. BUT....I'd add a docking station to allow you to have an external monitor, keyboard, and mouse for that 99% home use. The GPU on the Dell is indeed lower than the MSI, but if you're not using that power for gaming and heavier video editing, you would still likely be fine; and, the external monitor @ 4K should be well achievable for both machines (the MSI resolution is a limitation of the screen, not the video card; so I'm assuming an external monitor can be driven at 4K and for home use you could ignore the laptop screen). For th
  5. 2070 super max-q is about twice as powerful as a 1650ti. The 1650ti is a fairly low end gpu.
  6. A NPR 2013 quick interview with Blue Coast’s Cookie Marenco about the future of high quality audio in a MP3 world. Ends mentioning the promising release of Neil Young’s Pono on the horizon. https://www.npr.org/sections/therecord/2013/09/11/219727031/what-does-a-song-that-costs-5-sound-like
  7. 4K on a 15.6" monitor is not really going to offer much more than 1080p - 4K only really makes sense on large screens e.g. 32" or more Are you using the gpu for anything e.g. rendering? first person games? - there is not a huge performance difference between the 2070 super and 1650TI. if you are doing colour work you need to know the technology of the screen IPS vs TN IPS is generally more colour accurate AND wider gamult. You need to know the colour gamalt and accuracy. if you are doing lots of cpu intensive work the 8 core will give some advantage. my fear with the Dell i
  8. Necro-bumping this thread since I am looking to choose between two laptops thru my local Costco. Use cases include office apps, light photo editing (no video), Internet browsing, generally not movie watching. Stationary, plugged-in use (ie. 99% not portable). Both with 15.6" displays, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD 1. MSI GS66 - Intel Core i9-10980HK (8 core) processor - Max-Q GPU - 8GB NVIDIA GeForce® RTX 2070 SUPER Max-Q Graphics (1920x1080 resolution) - Legacy ports (RJ45 Ethernet, USB A both of which I would use) 2.

  9. It’s very colourful, like an ad for film. Pretty.
  10. Pretty sure @cetoolefound one of those in stock today.
  11. Another reverse seared Ribeye, this time with homemade creamed spinach. Pulled out the steak at 110 degrees and did a quick sear. Plus I feel like I'm at a steakhouse with the bucket of creamed spinach I made. Fantastic.

  14. The last place I want blisters is on my... Well, I'm sure you get the point.
  15. I'm not sure if any kind of head from flaming lips is ever a good thing.
  16. Yesterday
  17. Thanks. Who made them - Mueller-r.. something?

  19. Nice power supply. I can’t read the labels on trafos. What are their specifications?
  20. Condolences Jose. Hang on to those great memories!
