    £4200 is obscene for what you're getting.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    You always pay a lot more for that little bit more when it gets to the high end.

    I can't for the life of me figure out which part of the fairly standard hardware pushes the pricing up that high. Maybe it's for the portability? Who knows, but it isn't something I would pay for those specs.

    Make it thicker, for improved fan noise and lower temps. Then it might be worth considering.

    That screen bezel and hinge just looks cheap and nasty, I've got a 10 year old Dell latitude that looks about the same, with less of a gap.

    Re: Gigabyte Aero 15 OLED (GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop)

    £4k for a laptop? Are you kidding me? It doesn't even have an Apple on the front. I mean for that price you could get 75% of the iphone 13... priorities people.

    Why even bother covering stuff like this any more when it's all being gobbled up by miners.

    I expect miners don't want an OLED screen and 4K of laptop for some mining rig.
