    Just came here to decide over something. Now I have to convert ounces and pounds. C’mon!

  2. Paul Rippcord on December 21, 2019 at 6:25 pm

    I truly disagree with the methodology of how you determined the portability. The Acer is a flimsy mess that feels like like it’s gonna snap at any second. You should’ve done a drop test from 3 feet (1 meter) which is about the height of the average desk. True portability is the ability to put it in a backpack or knock into it. 2 lbs isn’t heavy unless you’re a toddler.

    well include more. DONE

  4. EddTheBob ! on December 21, 2019 at 6:27 pm

    This guy seriously just said the white laptop that people said looked old is the best even though the MacBook won the vote

  5. Google User on December 21, 2019 at 6:33 pm

    646 minutes = 10 hours
    590 minutes = Just about 6 hours
    ……. something’s not adding up

  6. Pure Heart on December 21, 2019 at 6:33 pm

    Mac / sponsor :-👻

  7. physic Fitness5000 on December 21, 2019 at 6:34 pm

    People do bias when it comes to apple

  8. THE LUCKYSURY CHANNEL on December 21, 2019 at 6:34 pm

    1:11 He must’ve chose the MacBook Pro base 2019 (Has quad core processor)

  9. Bleach co. on December 21, 2019 at 6:35 pm

    Bought a MacBook Air last week … I’m returning it tonight 💀

  10. Billy Savage on December 21, 2019 at 6:35 pm

    Horrible review! They didn’t really explain much of anything about these computers. The guy was just there giving out points.

  11. Brayden Law on December 21, 2019 at 6:37 pm

    You sound like linus

  12. Mr Twister on December 21, 2019 at 6:38 pm

    60 Minutes = 1 hr
    smh.

  13. ogochukwu emmanuel on December 21, 2019 at 6:38 pm

    The people have spoken but the people are wrong

  14. Emerson Cabides on December 21, 2019 at 6:39 pm

    This review is a trash, what a waste of time

  15. elin eating on December 21, 2019 at 6:40 pm

    How are you going to give the dell the points for value when none of the testing was done with that base model priced computer? Not to mention the fact you did not even address the different price points of the razer… this was just a 13 minute long ad for the XPS

  16. Arvind Kumar on December 21, 2019 at 6:40 pm

    Sir please review Hp 15s bu0093tu. How is the build quality and looks of it?

  17. Johnathan Roan on December 21, 2019 at 6:41 pm

    For whatever reason anything with the dell logo makes me thing if my old dell computer and I’m automatically turned off by the idea of having a Dell device.

  18. Savage Tube on December 21, 2019 at 6:42 pm

    Wtf is this😳😳😳

  19. Colin on December 21, 2019 at 6:42 pm

    Why does the video look so terrible at 12:42? What kind of camera do you guys use?

  20. Vitalii Kozlovskyi on December 21, 2019 at 6:42 pm

    Dumbest review I’ve ever seen

  21. soheb zaidi on December 21, 2019 at 6:43 pm

    Who forwarded the video to the end to find out which laptop was the best.

  22. Sean Louie Nathaniel Sucayan on December 21, 2019 at 6:43 pm

    4:08… RGB keyboards… Are now called Disco Computers XD

  23. iyaz akhtar on December 21, 2019 at 6:43 pm

  30. Xitas Ameer on December 21, 2019 at 6:57 pm

  31. Will Mills on December 21, 2019 at 6:57 pm

  34. Shane Lynch on December 21, 2019 at 7:01 pm

    This is an amateurish appraisal of these displayed laptops, what a pity !

  35. jm apple on December 21, 2019 at 7:04 pm

    dell xps 13 i5, 8gb ram, 256gb pcie for $799 with 12% cashback via ebates
    find me a better deal on a premium laptop….

  36. Ben Adriance on December 21, 2019 at 7:04 pm

    The Mac looks old, hasn’t changed in a more than a decade. Try something, innovate. Good call on the review.

  37. Kunaii on December 21, 2019 at 7:05 pm

    Yt is getting comfy with these “2 ads”

  38. SaltyDonuts 99 on December 21, 2019 at 7:05 pm

  44. Juan Álvarez on December 21, 2019 at 7:15 pm

    Oh so in this case you can put a 1699 MacBook Pro on performance and then say, but you can get the air. That’s what you done on the dell

  45. Shanice Grande on December 21, 2019 at 7:15 pm
