Recommendation My first Gaming laptop. My wife surprised me for my birthday and I'm still in shock...the lenovo legion 7i with 11th generation intel core i7...32 gb ram and 2tb memory. I never knew my life was missing this beast, battery life is horrible when off charger, but I tend to leave it plugged in anyway.
Recommendation My wife just got me this omen 16.1 i7 11800h 3060. Absolutely love it. The laptop came windows 11 pre installed. My question: do you recommend doing a format to a new laptop and install fresh windows? If so it would be if there is a step by step article or video to do it. Thanks!
Got this computer from Newegg for my bday and it gave me the best summer ever. I bought the The version with 32gb ram, 1tb SSD, Ryzen 5900hx, and Rtx 3070. Upon arrival I unboxed and booted it up to check the internals and specs. Imagine my reaction when I found out they gave me the wrong graphics card...they gave me a 3080 instead!!! I was ecstatic when I found out that I got a 300$ upgrade for free. I splurged on games as this is my first gaming pc. Every game I played reached the buttery smooth 120fps and some reached 165fps. Would definitely recommend.

Some long time users of the site are still trying to see if it can be bought out and preserved, but so far there is no indication that TechTarget, the owners of the site, are willing to sell the forum.

*:Legion 5P doesn’t have warranty, its imported from USA by seller also both same price
First for a little background on my needs, I am planning on buying a custom Laptop from LCP-Digital with a 3080 RTX & 11th Gen Intel Core in it.
& the games I plan on playing on it honestly are probably gonna be 30% 90s Games, 30% 2000s Games, 30% 2010s Games, & 10% New Triple AAA Games, I don’t have much interest in the new broken big budget title games with benchmark pushing hyper reality graphics, & will most likely be playing older games.
(I also plan to eventually get into VR with it)
Will switching to Windows 11 affect my compatibility with older games? As there have already been a bunch of fan-made mods labeled as “Windows 10 Patches” & will Windows 11 render them useless?
I cant find a decent gaming laptop with an i7, 16 GB RAM, 1Tb SSD that costs less or equal to 1200€-1300€, any suggestions?
I have been out of the game for a while and have been eyeing up this gaming laptop;
This has the 130W 3070, the current price is £1598.99, I’m not sure what the original RRP for this was but I have seen it listed as £2199.95. I realise that the 2022 models will be coming soon but £1598.99 is the top of my budget and I am wondering if I wait that the same spec for 2022 will be over £2K.
As this is the place to go for advice on gaming laptops I hope that someone can offer some advice on whether to stick or twist.
I recently got a MSI Crosshair 15 A11UEK-205 (Model with i7, rtx 3060 and 512 gb ssd). From what I can find online there are supposed to be 2 M.2 nvme ssd slots, and the user manual says there is an (optional) ssd slot and outlines where it is with the following description: "This notebook is equipped with a SSD M.2 slot that only supports Intel® SSD device with PCIe interface" Just wondering if anyone has installed a second SSD into an MSI Crosshair 15, and what ssd did you use if so? Thanks
tldr: Have you installed a second ssd onto MSI Crosshair 15, and did it work / what ssd did you use?
So I bought a wireless mouse for my Gaming laptop. Do you guys take the adapter out every time? I travel with the laptop for work as well and I’m afraid I’m going to lose it so I’d prefer to keep it in. It travels in a laptop sleeve, inside of a laptop backpack. So it is protected. I just want to know if leaving the adapter in can do damage or is it a bad idea.
I was changing the battery on my Asus Rog Zephyrus yesterday and I noticed a slot to install a second SSD. Looking online I couldn't really find anything useful for benefits asides from pros of SSD vs Hard Drives. Would it be useful to use this for additional storage? Or would the negatives (like slow down computer, etc.) outweigh any pros? Thanks.
Hi all, I’ve recently came into some money and have decided to buy a new laptop. I’m completely clueless about computers so I was wondering if youse would be so kind as to help me figure out what I’m best buying.
I only really play games like Crusader Kings, Civilisation, and Age of Empires. I’ve got a budget of around £1500, but obviously cheaper is better(without sacrificing too much performance). A larger screen would be nice as well.
Cheers guys J x
Need help deciding for gaming
I got Minecraft on this laptop but I can’t use my controller
So I have around $1K worth of Best Buy gift cards I've been getting from work and I'm thinking of getting a new laptop. Looking for a 30 Series laptop under 2K that can last a good couple of years. I mostly play racing sims and will also be using it for regular work + trading. I've narrowed it down to these ones below but would love to hear from you guys on which one to pick:
With this post I hope to help everyone who reads it to avoid extreme overheating of owning laptops and save some money on repair until buying new one.
I'm a very happy owner of a wonderful laptop from Asus Zephyrus G14.
At some point while playing I noticed laptop got hotter and hotter and I really hate when it happens, so I found a small tweak that allows me to drop my CPU Temps from 95°C to 75°C on full load.
I think this might be helpful for everyone to know and do in case if your laptop often overheats and throttles.
1) Open Advanced power option with "Win + R" and "powercfg.cpl" command
2) Find "Change plan settings" and "Change Advanced Power Settings"
3) In Power Options window find "Processor Power Management"
4) Under it find "Processor performance boost mode"
5) Put setting to "Disabled".
6) Done, gl & hf :)
If option is not there - change registry settings: ac
1) Open Registry "Win + R" and "regedit" command
2) Follow the path: Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power\PowerSettings\54533251-82be-4824-96c1-47b60b740d00\be337238-0d82-4146-a960-4f3749d470c7
3) Change option under name "Attributes" from "1" to "0". 4) Close all windows and reopen Power options once again!
I also have a made a small video-guide how to do that step by step, feel free to check out.
