  • HP definitely has set their sights on Apple with this set of releases. Hopefully they didn't cut costs on things like the trackpad. Posted from Windows Central for Windows 10
  • Nice to see a high end laptop support AMD as well for a change, we the consumers need Intel to be constantly challenged. Otherwise where would the innovation come from? lol. As well as to keep prices from skyrocketing.  
  • I know what your saying but AMD is still very much behind Intel. They really need to do more research and development if they want to have better products.
  • Personally I feel that selling off ATI's mobility division was the sign of things to come. They could have incorporated the power savings from the mobile chipsets into the other classes.
  • That's just for the graphics, right? In that case, isn't the fight for discrete graphics really between AMD and nVidia?
  • Yes and No, tech can adapted.
  • Does the USB-C port support Thunderbolt 3?
  • So HP
  • 4K displayis great but the bezels ar ehuge they should try to achieve something like Dell have with the infinity display.
  • Nice windows, I have been using this for 5 month. It's features are really awesome..   Regares Admin of  Best fire starter
