    Re: QOTW: Which laptop do you currently use?

    HP Zbook 15 Quad core Haswell, Quadro K6100 I think and 8GB ram. Got it for cheap, mainly as the seller didn't quite know that it was not the base model, but second from top.
    Its big, its heavy, but its super easy to work on and upgrade. Runs Manjaro KDE and Windows 7 Pro.

    Re: QOTW: Which laptop do you currently use?

    A cosmos II from PCSpecialist. It's 3 years old now but its still a powerful machine in everything but the GPU department. The quad core i7 can sustain over 3GHz boost, has 16GB, SSD and 2 hard drives and a GTX 850m which is more than sufficient for gaming on the go. Only problem I have is that it's a little too heavy but taking out one of the drives would probably make it better if I want to.

    I have an 11" Lenovo Yoga 700 which I picked up cheaply in a black Friday sale. I only really use it for backing up my photo's when traveling. Perfect for my needs.

    Dell XPS 9560, 32gb RAM, 4k touch panel, 1tb NVMe drive. Microsoft word is surprisingly fast

    Zenbook UX305 for Windows, and a slightly older Sony Vaio for Linux. I want to move my Linux to a Thinkpad. I've also got an MSI Wind U100 netbook still alive and doing torrenting duties..

    Re: QOTW: Which laptop do you currently use?

    I have a 15" HP Omen, but think I only use it about 2 times a year.
    I don't think I will buy another one as I just don't like laptops myself

    Gigabyte P35x v3. Gets used daily for gaming and browsing. The 3k screen looks nice but the 980m is not quite up to the job, so it sounds like a jet engine when gaming.

    Re: QOTW: Which laptop do you currently use?

    The family laptop (on which I'm posting now) is a Lenovo Y70-70 with 16GB of RAM. Not really happy with it, but it serves its purpose.

    My personal laptop is a Dell XPS 13, Core i5-6200, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD. If AMD's Raven Ridge APU's turn out well, I hope that Dell releases a version with that, and I might upgrade to it.

    Re: QOTW: Which laptop do you currently use?

    Asus x555 for now. I have a couple of desktops to choose from when I need more screen real estate or power, but I'm really sick of the poor durability of consumer laptops so I'll be getting something more business class next. I don't really care if its heavier or ugly, either.

    Had a few laptops and hated them all.

    Desktop all the way here, I would never buy another laptop.

    Re: QOTW: Which laptop do you currently use?

    family laptop is some little 13.3" ultrabook Core M3 machine from PC specialist.
    main machine is my desktop, but that's getting replaced by a iPad Pro 10.5 next year, because of changing circumstances (getting a job which involves extreme amounts of moving around, and because i want to be able to download Netflix movies legally)

    I have 2 work laptops. One hp and one dell and both are slow due to the corporate firewalls and red tape. My kindle paper white is faster.
