    The differences between HD 620 and 1050 it’s huge.
    http://www.game-debate.com/gpu/inde...raphics 620 Mobile-vs-Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050
    Even 965 vs 1050 the second is 25-30% faster performance.
    https://www.futuremark.com/hardware/gpu

    And you get with i7 quad core 8th generation CPU compared to dual core i5 U series 7th generation intel CPU.

    And don’t forget the less temperature development of Nvidia Pascal architecture + more battery friendly.

    Also 1060 it’s only available at 15” Book version.

    Oh, in that case, I change my mind. Definite buy! (followed by definite divorce)

    Why is there so much disdain for the GTX 1050? Dell has been using it in the XPS 15 for a couple of years and gets high marks with pros and gamers.

    Adding a note to my anti-MS rant about the SB2 - when you price out the new HP Spectre 13 8th gen it costs you a whopping $100 to go from 128gb to 512gb...take that Panos...(and that is for a PCIe NVM drive from Samsung)!

    Hmmmmm - the water just keeps getting hotter - witness the HP ZBook x2 (detachable) with Surface Book 2 chops (or even better on graphic cards) WITH WACOM EMR! Not svelte beauty but power and ports out the @$$:

    [​IMG]

    1. Power connector with LED
    2. (2) Thunderbolt™ 3 ports
    3. HDMI 1.4 port
    4. USB 3.0 (charging) port
    5. SD card slot
    6. Fingerprint reader
    7. Combo headset port
    8. Power
    9. Volume up/volume down

    Kind of "beefy" but my oh my the pecs - I mean specs:

    Damn.. i just bought a BNOB SB1 PB (highest spec) for USD1850.
    I thought MS will release SB2 on 31 october event in Shanghai.

    Btw, regarding 965m vs 1050, real life gaming performance doesn't differ much, only 3-5 FPS.
    I'm curious with the 1060 on SB2 15" though, is it a real 1060 or 1060 Max-Q version.
