    Im currently thinking about getting a 15inch HP Spectre x360 laptop. However I'm also tempted by Lenovos X1 Yoga with 14 inch. Can anyone tell me the if its a significant difference when working with a 14inch compared to 15inch?

    I felt like I was in Advanced Calculus during the first 2 minutes. Damn, Professor Gade slow down! Are you any kin to Professor Marsh at USC?

    Hi I really like your reviews! Well done! Please do the comparison for Lenovo Yoga 920 and Leno ThinkPad X1 2Gen yoga. I am confused between these two, which one to buy. Thank you!

    Lisa, I wonder if you agree with this:

    Why is Dell not reverting to providing a dedicated right click (context menu) button on its keyboards, more so in case of the new XPS 15 2-in-1 that has enough width allowing for this key to be provided?

    Dell did the best thing by restoring dedicated keys for Page Up, Page Down, Home and End keys. Perhaps these were withdrawn in trying to mimic an Apple keyboard. But these keys are so often used, that they should have dedicated keys. Thanks to Dell that they withdrew from their silly experiment of clubbing functionality of these keys with the arrow keys. But why not extend the same to the Right click functionality?

    For so long, Dell has been my favourite brand of laptops. In 2016 & 2017, Dell took it away. Here was a chance for Dell to redeem itself.

    Dell, if you are listening, please restore the dedicated key for 'Right click' functionality. It is so often used. Currently, only Samsung Notebook 9 Pro 15" (2017) is the only convertible (2-in-1) laptop to have all of these as dedicated keys. I really fear that Samsung when it comes out with a 2018 Notebook 9 Pro 15" might also club the 'Right click' key into the right-side Ctrl key.

    I simply don't understand why OEMs don't give us the option for 1440p screens. This is the perfect compromise between battery life and resolution, it's not as expensive as UHD screens and not as outdated as FullHD…

    Hey Lisa, great video as always!
    I do have one question though, I noticed Bob now has a barrel plug for charging again, iirc this wasn't the case with previous models. With the new processor with higher TDP, I'm concerned that fast charging might only work via this barrel plug and not USB-C anymore, which would be a deal breaker for me. Also this would probably mean that the included power adapter would not be USB-C anymore as well.
    Any infos on that?
    And keep up the good work 👍

    Man, I just got a 15" Spectre… Looks like the new one has a separate power plug, so no PD over Thunderbolt? The late 2017 Spectre's already hot, wonder how the new one will be.

    Hi Lisa – I just bought a HP Spectre 15t (BOB) based on your recommendations. I am not an artist, but feel in love with the elegant looks of the Spectre. I touched the screen with the HP stylus that came with the laptop and now have a permanent dot on my screen. The screen also is not as bright as my old HP Envy 3D 17.3. I'm not holding you to anything at all, I just value your opinion more than anyone else's. If I'm already having trouble with the screen, should I send this one back and wait on the newest model? Since I am not an artist should I even get a Spectre? I would really appreciate any help you can give me, please?

    I wonder how many people besides me are drooling at the new laptops, when they just bought the previous version
