    "Generally speaking, I7 is better than i5" — No, generally not. That only holds within one generation, and there will be overlap between high-end models from one generation and low-end models of the next generation.
    Also good to know: there was a major boost from 7th generation to 8th generation, and another boost from 10th to 11th generation. I don’t see too much difference between 8th and 10th generation.
    If you really want to know how fast a CPU is, you’ll have to google "benchmark <cpu I> vs >cpu II>", and then decide whether single-core or multi-core operation is more important for your usage.

    Yo, the wallpaper on that laptop is so nice, would anyone mind telling me where i can find that wallpaper? (The one on the laptop on the right 0:02)

  6. Reet ਪੰਧੇਰ on April 8, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    Amongst windows laptops which one has given you the best battery life?

  7. Vusi Mashaba on April 8, 2021 at 9:21 pm

  8. Justin Leonor on April 8, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    great video….I am an iPhone user, always have been. Apple Tv, Apple watch but I am quite impartial when it comes to my laptop of choice. I am starting my own business and therefore will be using a lot of Microsoft office (excel, word) as well as PDF usage i would imagine. would you suggest going for the surface laptop 3 over the macbook air? again, i am a huge apple fan but i want to make the right decision for my business

  9. Enock Daisi on April 8, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    recommend for me good laptop under 1000$ for video editing

  10. jonathon hasselbeck on April 8, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    What’s the laptop at 1:51?

  11. Norazah Mat Sarif on April 8, 2021 at 9:27 pm

    The only reason im here is to tell my parent which laptop to get in about 2 months so it can run minecraft unlike the 4gb ram family pc :)))

  12. Fawaz Hakim on April 8, 2021 at 9:29 pm

    I need a laptop that is powerful enough to run Adobe premiere pro and have good 7-8 hour battery. What do you think will be suitable for me? (Budget is around 1000$)

  13. Dom C on April 8, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Respect for putting that clip of you getting drunked on in the gulag into the vid

  14. Sullivan Vega on April 8, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    I’m looking for a laptop that can hold my adobe software, such as Cinema4D, Premier Pro, After Effects & etc. I have a ASUS 19 inch laptop that is on it’s last leg, can you help? Thanks

  15. Bow to the King on April 8, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    What about for sims 4 all packs and mods that will last good amount of years

  16. Angela Summerfield on April 8, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    I’ve been doing all of my "stuff" on my android phone and have toyed with the idea of getting a larger screen, but perhaps a laptop. I’ve recently exhumed my old desktop, sat gathering dust at the back of a cupboard for 3+years, so imagine my delight when it sprang back to life, with even the correct date and time (how does it know????) Clearly I need to get up to speed with what’s the go with portable devices…. looking forward to your updates 🙂

  17. Vanitore on April 8, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    XPS 17 is a stunner cant stand the diabolical fan control

  18. darkmanx2g on April 8, 2021 at 9:36 pm

    I just bought the MSI Prestige Evo 14 on clearance on Best Buy and has been great so far. Love the backlit keys that illuminate so bright.

  19. Captain Chats on April 8, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    im not sure if i should go macbook air or windows. i have an ipad and iphone. I would like to be able to hook it up to my 27 inch monitor aswell so maybe a mac mini. Im so confused

  20. Ehsan Hussain on April 8, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    I’m looking for a laptop which can handle photo and video editing and then the basic office apps, would an i7 Intel Chip be enough with 8GB ram?

  21. Kennedy Anku on April 8, 2021 at 9:39 pm

    Great comparison and am I say that is impressive coming up with all this information. Why wasn’t Huawei notebook or Microsoft surface laptops mentioned, are they not very good?

  22. The Tech Chap on April 8, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    Hey Chaps! What laptop are you most excited for in 2021? (I can’t wait for updated MacBook Pro 16 with M1Z/M2 chip)!

  23. Konrad Migraso on April 8, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    it would be highly appreciated of you recommend the best budget laptop with price below 300pounds.

  24. George Michael on April 8, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    Great video, but I am missing the dvd drives in the laptops.

  26. Jorge Serrano on April 8, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    Does it make sense for me to get an MacBook despite having a pixel phone?

  27. Mobile Communications Network on April 8, 2021 at 9:44 pm

    Google pixel projections? Standard in Chromebooks?
    What do you think its going to be the next gen? AMD based?

  28. Aljaž Bežan on April 8, 2021 at 9:47 pm

  29. shady vinc on April 8, 2021 at 9:47 pm

  36. Sushim Shah on April 8, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    12:01-I like how you showed the Macs when they actually limited to just 16 gigs & have only 2 ports

  37. Arrwmkr on April 8, 2021 at 9:57 pm

  40. chairman67 on April 8, 2021 at 10:04 pm
