That's why I don't understand it's worth allocating money towards a more powerful GPU. If you're an art student I would assume this is basically your main machine on the go and the iPad Pro 9.7" as your companion device (and drawing tablet; there's a mirroring app I can't remember that lets you use the iPad Pros as a Cintiq-esque device) and if you're going to be lugging this thing around all the time then you should be highly prioritizing form factor. If it's a sit at...
If you have no self control it doesn't make a difference if it's League/Overwatch or Skyrim or Dark Souls. Playing games with rather constant set game times is choosing between another game or not; League is a little better because average game time if you play on Summoner's Rift is 40-60 minutes. Overwatch matches are relatively short in comparison.   The issue with games without set times per session is that you always think "just a couple more minutes" where as for...
If GPU isn't a big priority and the screen is then you should be getting a 1080p 100%sRGB IPS laptop display with an Iris 550 or some stronger iGPU since gaming isn't a priority. You're trying to balance your career with your free time. As a student I don't know why you would be spending your time playing heavier, time consuming games versus something light like say Overwatch or League.
I don't see how a 1050 is a compromise. It performs better than the 960M while using the same power draw.   And none of the budget options are remotely close to workstation laptops. They all offer worse build quality, worse panels, worse inputs.   Also I have 0 idea where your sources are but high chance is that if it isn't Notebookcheck it's pretty trash. I haven't seen other reviewers with such large coverage and such in depth reviews.
http://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-Ideapad-Y700-17ISK-80Q0-Notebook-Review.156808.0.html   You also realize that the model you chose isn't 99% sRGB either right? Also that backlight bleed so piss poor QC.   If you're really serious about going professional you probably would be spending $2000+ on a laptop for professional work as your main machine. Even at the current price bracket I'm not sure why you're trying to look for gaming laptops as an arts person. Apps like...
Last years was 70% sRGB. Nobody has the new model 1080p panel for review yet.
Aren't you in Canada?   http://www.dell.com/ca/p/inspiron-15-7567-laptop/pd?ref=PD_OC   ???   And the Inspiron 7000 gaming screens are fine from what I've seen.
I don't see why it's worth considering 960M laptops when the 1050 Ti crushes it. Pretty sure the new Inspiron 7000 is already up for order.   And at $1400 may as well get the new XPS 15 w/ the 1050.   For reference the 1050 is about a 965M and the 1050 Ti is about a 970M.   http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/productdetails/inspiron-15-7567-laptop   http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/productdetails/xps-15-9560-laptop   IMO the inspiron 15 7000 looks better than most (I...
Last time I checked pricing worked out that way w/in the same panel technologies. I wouldn't be surprised if one was like $20-$40 more expensive than the other though; if the ultrawide is more expensive that's even worse value; if the 16:9 is more expensive that's accurate value since you're paying for more pixels.
Slipstreams are pretty godly fans and the stock case fans are usually trash. Mice wanted a relatively quiet rig so we're taking those and undervolting them to run at 1200-1300 rpm. Vortez has the numbers. The dBa to CFM both free air and restricted on these fans are quite amazing. Also the 1900 rpm ones cost less than the lower speed ones for some reason. It's going to be run as 2 front intake, 1 top intake in front of the CPU cooler and 1 push fan for CPU cooler. Push...
