Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: The Dell XPS 15 After 2 Weeks

This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the latest Dell XPS 15 2 in 1 laptop/tablet/convertible device.

It comes packed with a lot of features like the Intel Core i7-8705G processor and 16 gb ram, along with 256 GB of SSD storage.

It is fast, looks great, has a fantastic display and does most everything well. However it has a few downsides such as battery life and the web cam placement, watch the video to learn the details on those.

It will do a very respectable job of playing games and can obviously do well at any business application you throw at it.

So let us get right to that video!

That is all for now, except please subscribe to our channel or click those big donation buttons on the website here!

Today’s First Video Worth Sharing: The Xiaomi Mi Gaming Laptop

Today we have a video from Chris over at TechTablets on the Xiaomi Mi Gaming laptop. This is a solid gaming laptop, but has a serious flaw when it comes to the keyboard. It also happens to be quite expensive at roughly  $1280 currently for the config tested in the review.

It is available with an Nvdia GTX 1050 or GTX 1060 GPU. Thermals are not an isse at all, but fan noise is rather high and the choice by Xiaomi to add some macro buttons in a poor area of the keyboard  makes for some issues.

Those issues aside, as far as game performance goes, this is a very solid performer.

So all that being said, make sure to visit the TechTablets YouTube channel and subscribe if you want to see a wide variety of tech items tested and reviewed. Now let us proceed to show you that promised video!

As usual make sure to check out our new YouTube channel for the occasional video worth watching!

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: My Top Nit Picks About Tech Reviews!

I watch a ton of videos and if you visit my new channel on YouTube you will see the reviewers I watch all the time, because they are honest and nit-picky, however, they still tend to push a few items  that I consider irrelevant to the consumer, until all the other info has been discussed.

I am not picking on any of these folks in particular, because they all do this stuff and that includes several hundred other channels on YouTube.

I simply think that looks, feel and thinness of a device are irrelevant unless the specs meet the buyer’s needs in the first place. So in my case it is all about price, battery life, functionality and then perhaps weight/looks.

So let us get right to that video and please make sure to like and share it and maybe even subscribe!

That is all for today except for the usual request to donate to this site to keep it going!

Does Your Track Pad Suck? A Little Common Sense Such As Using A Cheap Wireless Mouse Is The Answer!

Whether you are using a Cheap Tech Notebook/Laptop or even a few of the High End devices available these days a crap track pad might be a royal pain in the butt.

However, for most of us a simple dirt cheap mouse might be the answer! The track pad itself was mostly designed for situations where you simply didn’t have access to a mouse or other pointing device. A mouse is also a superior pointing device on any larger tablet!

Personally I detest a track pad, unless I am somewhere where that is all I have at hand. But you can find a mouse that will solve most of your issues with a bad track pad for a few bucks. So do not let a reviewer turn you off to a laptop/notebook because the track pad sucks. Take it in context and imagine how rarely you might use this part of the device, especially if you have a handy wireless mouse  around.

All the above being said it is time for the video!

That is all I have for this evening,

Tim

First Video Worth Sharing Today! The Dell XPS 15 2 in 1 Convertible!

This one comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and is the unboxing and initial impressions. I have watched one other video on this device and it seems to have 1 minor flaw and that is battery life (but let us wait for confirmation).

However, it has a great display, touch screen panel and the usual Dell quality.  It is plenty powerful enough for your daily workload and has a lot of ports!

No it is not inexpensive, but it certainly isn’t overpriced as some other notebooks, with far fewer ports.

So let us get right to the video after I remind you to check out Andrew’s channel on YouTube and remember to like it and subscribe!

That is all for now,

Tim
