      The look is hard to get used to, but come on, it's not that bad. They need to put the keyboard at the botom in order to have some more space.

    Am I the only one that really likes the keyboard and trackpads placement?, I absolutely hated the track pad on conventional laptops, I always miss fired or something cause it's in the way of my left hand when using WASD

    I love how they subliminally put space invader warnings into the video to tell people that the 2070 and 2080 cards are failing and are pretty much shit without saying it.

    They could have easily just made a slide-out webcam I don't want an optional accessory I do like the screen would love to see razer come out with a competitor to this no Thunderbolt I disapprove. How could they? I kind of wish the trackpad lit up kind of like alienware's not crazy about the placement.

    Good(ish) review, terrible video. I had to listen at half volume, either Linus is still shouting because he's used to CES or the editor applied a voice amplification filter on which screwed with the audio and made the quality of the audio just terrible. The camera person is also incredibly shakey. I usually like these reviews but this deemed a thumbs down

    I might just be transitioning into one of those crotchety old men that doesn't understand new technology but I don't understand the infatuation with thin and light laptops. I don't mind having a laptop with a little more meat to it if it means I can have more battery, or better performance. Of course this is coming from a guy that prefers a textured plastic finish on my laptops (like the old dell laptops and some of the cheaper ones now have) over metal construction as well. So take that with a grain of salt.

    That keyboard placement is just going to cause more carpal tunnel injuries while gaming.
