    As of the day of this video's filming (Dec 21st), a Walmart-exclusive OVERPOWERED i7 + GTX 1060 laptop could be had for just $799. But is it actually a good value?

      +Stanley Scalf it WAS a 1400 laptop, but got rolled back to a 799 price. So now, it's got better bang per buck when compared to a similarly priced competition.

    Listen here you numpad hater. I am writing this comment on my 110% mechanical keyboard and it's awesome. It's so much easier to just switch to a num pad whenever you have to type a lot of numbers or a long number and you don't wanna awkwardly do it with the top row numbers because no one can accurately and comfortably touch type those from the home row. Yes, I'm a "gamer." But it's not like gaming is literally all I ever do!

    • PkGam
      PkGam 2 days ago

      As a gamer, I use one for older games as their response time beats out the lag of HD screens have. As an example, you can connect a S/NES to an HDTV (even a CRT one), but the HD image processing takes too long (analog to digital conversion, upscaling, pixel response time, etc...) and throws off your timing. That lag is also why stuff like light gun games (Duck Hunt for instance) won't work on HD sets.

  • Matt Evans
    Matt Evans Month ago

    The reason they, as well as most other cheaper gaming laptops have number pads, is because while they were designed with gaming in mind, that is not their sole purpose. For most people that buy these, it is also their daily use/work computers. The companies know this, which is why they include the novelty features in this price range. Lets face it, if you already have a personal laptop, or an actual home computer and you wanted a gaming laptop you wouldn't be looking at these. You'd be going balls to the wall.
    If you don't have a personal laptop, which a lot of people don't, you are getting the all in one with a purchase like this. It can play games, and do normal computer work. For a reasonable price. When you get into the upper tier of gaming laptops, alot of the normal computer features are removed. But once again this price range is laptops that can game, not necessarily gaming laptops.

      +Rachet an d Clank I actually got it in December when it was on sale. I knew it was going to sell out when I saw people talking online about how they probably wouldn't re-order them once they became out of stock. I don't think they'll restock them since the 1060 is being phased out by the newer RTX cards. You can find these laptops on ebay but they're priced much higher than $799. I think around the $1,000 range.
