    Aimed at 'professionals' yet comes with gaming graphics card... while I'm not saying they can't do the job, and I'll happily use one myself on my desktop due to budget reasons, it just means this is little more than a new paint job on the existing gaming machine.

    I agree, but I think they're referring to the software bundle.

    We all know that true "creatives" prefer Mac Books. I mean, who wants a slight thicker design to facilitate adequate cooling, or decent I/O options (without the use of "cool" and "convention" dongles)? Hell, who even cares about a functional keyboard? Don't worry about the dust, as long as it looks good haha

    Hope you don't mind a 1700 Euro price tag for the GTX 1050 Ti 4GB model. Was looking quite interesting as a nice college laptop/desktop substitute till i found the price on notebookcheck.

    It's not unreasonable to have a discrete GPU for creatives. There's a lot of GPGPU / CUDA stuff out there.

    The issue isn't having a discrete GPU, it's the fact it's a gaming card when the device is aimed at 'professionals' where the usual choice of card would be a quadro or radeon pro (is that the name now, I've lost track, it used to be fire pro).

    Can you get those kinds of cards for laptops? I thought they were all desktop cards?

    Well apple are using the radeon pro in their macbook pro's, amongst other brands I'm sure, and nvidia has their quadro's all over the place, there is or atleast was a 'dell xps 15' (precision 5530) which uses a Quadro P2000 w/4GB GDDDR5 (mobile version) instead of a GTX 1050Ti with 4GB GDDR5 (mobile version).

    Would a 'professional' not be looking for a screen with a higher resolution than 1080p?

    1080P @ 15.6" is a 0.180mm dot pitch equivalent to 4K on a 31"+ monitor.
    That's plenty for my eyes, whereas 4K would require using scaling which still doesn't work 100% and possible never will for legacy Windows Forms applications.
    For laptops a far more important consideration is battery life. Mainly that driving a higher resolution requires a brighter display. Was going to link two reviews at NBC (as they review just about every laptop), but this Cnet.com article which has already done the work:
    https://www.cnet.com/news/five-reaso...-to-stay-away/
    The give the example of the Dell XPS 13: whereas with the 1080P screen it gets 10.5hrs, with QHD it only gets 8hrs.
    Meanwhile, the HP Spectre x360 gets 16hrs battery live with 1080P, but only 8hrs for the 4K version.
    That's far too high a price for me.

    Fair enough, I've never really looked at those kinds of machines so I suppose that's why I've never come across the mobile pro cards.
