    Been wanting to get a new work laptop for a while......nothing to fancy, just something to use in the field. Ordered a dell inspiron 15 5000 with a 3700u ($662.00 minimally equipped). Then ordered an Evo 970 plus 1TB and 32 gigs of ram for it another $450. Can't wait to get it all, gonna be a pretty bad little lappy for not much money. Should be plenty fast for slutty slave field computer.

    Just because really. I suppose I can max out frame buffer for igpu. I have been know to fool around with ram drives, VM's, and fancy caching setups. At $200 bucks for 32 gigs of ram, it couldn't hurt. I would love to give a real reason, but just because really. Because my plain AMD laptop will be just a little more awesome than that plain Intel laptop.

    I have to ask: that SSD you ordered, it's plain SATA or NVMe?
    Because if it's NVMe, that's an insane deal and an badass notebook.
    Not that the former is a bad deal, don't get me wrong.

    Its coming tomorrow!!!!! Got a clients new laptop at the house too, can't wait to see how they stack up against each other. His is an 8750h i7 with 16 gigs of ram and a 512 nvme ssd and 1050ti. Should be a good showdown. Obviously the apu won't keep up with 1050ti, but should at least being in swatting range. More interested in how the cpu's stack up against each other.
