    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Vortex Series Laptop and she's a beauty

    I received my laptop (details below) a couple of weeks ago but have been too busy playing with it to get around to this review but here we are now. 1. The laptop selection and specification. After several months researching on YouTube and online generally, I stumbled upon PCS and then started...

    Thanks Pokkai, when I first decided it was time for an upgrade on my 11yr old Toshibal sattelite I sold the idea to my wife that it would cost around £1000 max and here I am at £1634. I did look at the RTX 2070 but it pushed the price up to over £1800 so I'm hoping the 2060 will be good enough...

    Thanks for that..I would mainly be storing music, videos and photos on that drive with a few spreadsheet and completed drawing projects but I think the only 2TB option is the 4500rpm drives but it is really an archive drive. I guess with my OS and programmes on the 250GB Samsung EVO and my...

    PCSPECIALIST, PCSPECIALIST Video Editing laptop conundrum...

    Hi Mark, I know very little about PC's but I've spent months researching exactly the same thing after buying the DJI Osmo Action and I am almost there with my selection thanks to some great advive from Oussebon but one of the main factors for me was rear connectivity so no leads were sticking...

    If you have time Oussebon, could you please give your opinion on the 2 options shown below....way below!! Surprisingly, there's only £56 difference from the three SSD option to the two SSD & HDD option but I think both follow your guidance and I assumed the Barracuda drive would be much faster...

    Cheers that makes sense but I realised today that the optane memory uses up an M.2 slot it seems because when I add it I'm advised that I cannot have 3 x M.2 slots when the laptop only supports 2. I'm just going through some configurations now to try and follow what you suggested and check...

    Excellent ill go back and look at my storage configuration and I'll probably go with a smaller ssd boot drive as a starter and then see what I can best afford to run with your option 2 but I definitely don't want to be 2 months down the line staring at the screen loading wishing I'd spent...

    Thanks for your response...my thoughts were that this drive (intel 660p) would be a "one size fits all" . I have thousands of videos and photos on my external hard drive but I would like to keep that as a back-up drive for everything so I can have all videos and photos on my laptop (660p drive)...

    Hi all, As a complete novice, I've almost completed my months of researching and configuring a laptop for general use, light gaming and some 4k video editing but I have hit a last stumbling block which is my drive set up. I had initially thought that 2 ssd's were the answer (I have a 2TB...

    Thanks so much Oussebon that's exactly what I needed to know so, based on that information, if I keep the spec the same but change my storage option to - 1st storage drive - 2TB Seagate ATA 2.5" drive 128MB CACHE (5400rpm) 1st M.2 drive - 500GB Samsung NVMe SSD This gives me far more storage...

    Hi I've read my original post and thought the answer why 2 ssds was here in my post.... "I do realise I'm tying up both Nvme ssd slots which only leaves me the 2.5" bay for possible upgrade but I thought that having 2 storage areas worked more efficiently. I did consider one smaller nvme ssd and...

    Thanks again.....hope this makes sense but I really have no idea why 2ssd's to be honest....everyone online raves that ssd is the way to go and thats been my only reason so I thought...yeh 2 ssd without any reasoning behind that decision (a little knowledge is a dangerous thing seems to apply to...

    Sorry Oussebon, I checked the Optimus quote I had and for around £40 less than the Vortex I can get this spec but, as i said, its a 60Hz screen and the Vortex is 144Hz...just wanted to also note that there are 2 M.2 drives in the Optimus also so it appears that the screen is the main difference...
