    Noob in PC need help purchasing gaming laptop 800~1000€

    If your budget is 800-1000 Euros, I would also be considering used laptops. You might be able to get a more powerful used laptop at that price point, compared to something that is new. For 1000 Euros, I'm sure you can find a laptop that will play those games you listed, with ease. Look for...

    Your CPU progression

    The only trade off so far that is noticeable is the increased fan noise, but i've kinda gotten used to it over time. I'm using a very good, but loud laptop cooler.

    Would upgrading from a Xeon 1620 v2 to a 1650 v2 or 2667 v2 help with gaming?

    I remember going from an i7 950(4C8T) to a W3690(6C12T) and it was a substantial upgrade which i'll never forget. But that was back in 2014.

    Are all 3.5mm AUX cables the same?

    LOL <3 I remember back in the day...Using built-in, cheap motherboard soundcards I could hear interference from the CPU, and PSU. Never heard interference from the mouse scroll though, nor have I seen anyone mention that before. That's a new one ;)

    If you're resetting windows, then the product key should automatically be applied because it's a laptop IIRC.

    Linux + Asus Laptop + Steam, a little Help please!

    I've never used Linux, but, i'm pretty good at learning how to use software pretty fast. The reason why I made a separate thread for my question, was because I have a newly released laptop, and I didn't want to go on the Asus forums as i'm locked out or something. Anyways. I have a G733ZX(Asus...

    So, Linux is also problematic, with backdoor access and the same shitty problems Windows has?

    Asus Armory Crate, what I believe & Feel to be the Truth!

    Windows installed updates magically, even though I set them to pause and turned off auto updates. It actually did this while offline without any notifications. Everything else is also trying to update itself as soon as I connect to the internet and run the program. Like Steam. Man O Man.

    Asus Armory Crate, what I believe & Feel to be the Truth!

    I really wish it was in my mind, as a matter of fact the thing that happened to my MSI GT75, I eventually became completely in denial of the truth. I did believe that it was in my head, and I thought that if I kept it that way things would be alright this time around. It's been 3 years of me not...

    Asus Armory Crate, what I believe & Feel to be the Truth!

    I actually got some responses, wow wasn't expecting that! I respect you both for coming out of the dark and admitting what you guys know and feel. So, the problem I see with this laptop is basically the following: •The serial number/hardware ID is basically flagged by Microsoft and Asus, I'm...

    Asus Armory Crate, what I believe & Feel to be the Truth!

    Okay, so Armoury Crate is an application that is preinstalled by default on Asus laptops. This software has the ability to directly monitor and control hardware components in your laptop, because it is connected to them on a deep & direct level, also it is connected to the BIOS because it has...
