Recently got a new laptop, wondering what other people's specs are.
Here is the exact laptop: MSI GT72S Dominator Pro G-219 G-Sync Gaming Laptop 6th Generation Intel Core i7 6820HK (2.70 GHz) 16 GB Memory 1 TB HDD 128 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M 8 GB GDDR5 17.3" IPS Windows 10 Home - Newegg.com
It has a 6820hk with a default clock of 2.7 ghz, and, like most Intel processors, the clock speed increases based on the load. It is a sky lake and has lots of overclocking potential, I have over 250 steam games and it plays all games I've tried with no sweat. The GPU is a 980m (8gb vram) runs everything I throw at it maxed.
It has 16 gb of ddr4, and a 1 tb hdd w/ a 256 gb ssd. It has a easy to remove back panel with room for more hard drives as well. It is very heavy though..

It's not how fast you mow, it's how well you mow fast.

Sorry couldn't help myself. ;)

Plus one of the few things I don't have is a laptop.

Sounds like it.

My little brother spends many a dollar on gaming PCs. I got burned out on video games back in the 70s.

That exact PSU in #2 has this reputation for, well, ****ing starting on fire.

Replace it.

Maybe I should swap its case with #3 to help things out lol!

Thanks for the heads up. I had read about them having issues but I believe I have the model prior to the firestarter edition.

No it is the most virus vulnerable setup ever, it is just so old no one wants to upload viruses for them anymore.
