My new laptop - Y530


Recommended Posts

Well...with my laptop not appearing to want to come back to life, and the fact I was already watching the laptop market, I decided to bit the bullet and get something new. I was trying to stay <$1k before tax, so some sacrifices had to be made. So far I am very happy with my choice and will update once I get some more playing in.

Lenovo Legion Y530i7 8750h16gb ramGtx 1050Ti 4gb128gb nvme1tb hdd 7200rpmBacklit keyboardIPS screen

Grabbed it at Costco for $999. Obviously I would have liked a bigger nvme drive, the hdd to be another ssd, or maybe a gtx1060, but overall I think its a solid setup and an amazing upgrade from what I had. Fingers crossed it treats me well

I will still try and fix the old one when time permits.

How about some videos of laptop upgrades.  I've been to afraid to take apart my old Sony to see if anything can be done with it.  It sucks but it still works....hence my apprehension...

On our YouTube channel I made some many years back. Tonight I hope to get time to finish 3 videos then I have a laptop upgrade and cooling video for next week for you 🙂

 

 

I know they are older videos of mine but I reay like doing the repair videos and upgrade ones, will get you videos of the following,

    • Hello everyone, now I am choosing between several laptops, but maybe you can advise me something better my priorities: mostly just for home, for watching movies and YouTube, for some light games (a couple of times a month), and sometimes for work (mostly google drive, various marketing resources, nothing heavy) around 600 USD 15.6" or more Acer, Asus? Order on Amazon? Windows prefarable 256 SSD or more. I will leave links of those notebooks that I am thinking about now https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-44-R41B-Hexa-Core-Processor-Graphics/dp/B087N4ZRXV?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_simh_hd_bw_b2N0e&pf_rd_r=61THRATEMWAKYQZB6J7M&pf_rd_p=121acd9e-769b-5530-ae68-5a92ebd704d6&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=565108 https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-55-56VK-i5-1035G1-Fingerprint-Keyboard/dp/B087RTV311/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&qid=1613042065&rnid=13896617011&s=computers-intl-ship&sr=1-10 THANKS!   Cali employee monitoring software
    • Hopefully, everyone can get this card before the bots do. Full unboxing of the new Nvidia 3060 Ti Gaming X Trio from MSI below:  
    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/
