    Just to mention the hdmi port may be a 2.0 version, the intel Xe only permits 60hz all resolution . I tried with 3 different 48gbps hdmi cables on a dell 32 in 165hz 1440p DP and HDMI 144hz 1440p capable. HDMI wouldn't go above 60hz even at 1080p.

    Just thought this wasn't this best review. Too much focus on very ittle things instead of who is the product is for and why you should buy it in my opinion. Love the channel, just think at time reviewers review so much stuff that you get their "reviewer" opinion instead of a more realistic one.

    Real question, why would anyone use these tiny 12-13 inch laptops though? Because since I've been using the 2019 ROG Zephyrus, weight and thickness is definitely not an argument against gaming laptops anymore. Aside from that, why would anyone wants a tiny screen, especially for productivity purpose? Like you've got to bend over zooming in on the screen to read and adjust anything. And their tiny size usually makes for terrible upgrade path and/or have terrible cooling systems.

    So it's like a M1 MacBook Air, just with a worse keyboard, worse trackpad, dramatically worse battery life and speakers and worse performance (CPU and GPU) -- all at $400 more in price.

    I can't believe Alex is praising the cowardice of the 16:10 display. Especially after using the Surface Laptop for so long. Huawei, Microsoft, Google, Acer and a few others have seen the light. 16:10 is heresy. A cowards compromise between the Gamer's/Media Consumer's 16:9 and the Productivity centered 3:2. All praise be unto 3:2, our lord and saviour.

  • Alex Desilets

    Okay, first off. Stop playing with aspect ratios... 16:9 is a good standard and every one of us regular consumers are basically sick of having screens that have bands on the picture. Second off, 16:10 is not a screen ratio, 8:5 is. Ratios are always reduced the same way you reduce fractions.

    I have no clue why these undepowered and around 1700-2000 dollars even exist. If you want to just watch stuff and music you get a 300 dollar laptop. And if you want power, you get a gaming one. These things shouldn't exist.

    Bro u know nothing, first u compare 15 inch laptop speakers with 13 inch, second why u didn't recommend i5 processor? It is the same as i7 just 500mhz lower frequency nothing more, same graphics, same number of cores and that i7 model cost about 50% more with more ram and that's it everything is the same. Also it is not the final product they will probably fix everything on the chassis, just stupid review.

    The 14 inch HP Elitebook 845 G7 w/ AMD Ryzen destroys this machine, from core count, integrated graphics (can still do DOOM Eternal at 60 FPS/720p), upgradability, durability (Elitebooks are built like tanks), keyboard and trackpad, B&O speakers....need I go on? Continuing to be very disappointed with Razer products. Even the System 76 14'' Lemur is $800 cheaper than this Razer and has the same specs, plus nerdy plusses like open source firmware.
