  1. Happy Birthday!
  2. Thank you everyone! My audiophile headphones have been gathering dust lately thanks to my 2 (noisy) young kids. Hopefully, I'll be able to listen to some music tonight.
  3. ECP Torpedo III with 12au7 tubes and the low impedance output setting has -6dB gain: http://www.diyforums.org/Torpedo-III/TorpedoIII-tubes.php You can do the same thing with the Torpedo 4, but I'm not sure what the gain would be exactly: http://beezar.com/pho-bzr/catalog/pub/docs/Amplifiers/T4/T4-FINAL.pdf
  4. You said that the chassis is plastic, but this review of an older variant of the Yoga 720-13IKB says that the chassis is "mostly aluminum": https://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-Yoga-720-13IKB-7200U-FHD-Laptop-Review.219798.0.html Unless she likes bigger screens, I think it should be a good choice.
  5. Do you have the model number of the Yoga? There are many different versions. I think MSI mainly (only?) makes gaming laptops.
  6. Out of your 3 initial candidates, the Dell seems like the nicest to me. However, if she won't be playing games or editing video, I think the discreet graphics card is just going to add unnecessary weight and cost to the laptop. The i7s are also not worth the additional cost in my opinion. A quad-core i5 (i5-8???U) should be good enough. Other features I'd want in a laptop: SSD at least 8GB of memory FHD (1080p) screen (IPS and touch are also nice to have) good port selection (both USB-A ports and USB-C) good build quality Lenovo Yogas usually get decent reviews, so I'd consider those as well. I have a Dell Latitude 7390 2-in-1, which uses a Yoga-style hinge, and it's sometimes useful for watching video, etc.
