About to buy a Gaming Laptop

Question

DELL I7567-5314 is the laptop i'm about to buy in a couple weeks off a friend for 650$. It's retail price in Canada foes for 1100$ and was wondering if Its a good laptop for school and gaming on the side. Is there anyone in this forum that already has experience with laptop or an opinion? Much appreciated :)

Could you specify some more on the actual components on the laptop? By what I see on the link you provided the laptop is customizable and CPU/GPU can vary quite a bit.

 

Still I think for the money it should be a very good laptop for studying (15.6" and 2.65kg should be more comfortable for carrying around than larger laptops) and decent for side gaming.

The best possible GPU for this Dell laptop is a 1050TI suited for laptops, in other words heavily underclocked and limited in both clocks and heat. For $650 not a bad deal (don't know how much that is for you in Canada, I am from the EU), but not a good either. You could easily get a laptop better suited for gaming. On the other hand, ask yourself the question if you truly need a Laptop. I know some who thought so too, but ended up getting a Desktop PC anyways, simply because of the advantages it offers.

960m vs 750 ti and 1050 ti vs 1050 ti mobile, everything is virtually identical between the desktop and mobile versions.

The chip, clock speed, power consumption *might* be a tad different but I doubt it, the 640 shader units weren't exactly power hogs. Rated 75W but typically only pulled 45W even on a desktop at full load. Even overclocked they don't draw a lot. Really good match for a laptop due to the inherent limitation in cooling.

      Hello,
       
      I have a Dell Inspiron 5555 with BIOS A12 and I am missing some options in the advance menu. The BIOS seems to be shared between the 5455 and the 5755, if it helps. Can anyone help me figure a way to have all the options in the BIOS available?
      I have attached the results archive from the backup tool, if it helps

      Thanks in advance!

      I have been attempting to change my boost clocks values for the longest time, though I've been unsuccessful. I managed to flash my modded BIOS, though no changes seem to have had happened, along with no errors either. Here's all the stuff I used and was able to get. If someone is able to help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated.

      I tried to extract the .bin from the .exe (on Dell's website) using PhoenixTool v.273, and in a way it worked... I want to change the TDP values on my 1060mq but when I tried to open the .bin in Mobile Pascal TDP Tweaker, this is what happened. Can somebody help me? Here's the original .exe and the .bin. Thanks!
       
      (note: I wasn't able to extract the bios using AFUWINGUI64 or any other similar tool as I think Dell has some type of guard or protection against that, suspecting that's also the cause of my current issues...)

      Hello everyone!
       
      So on occasion I host gaming nights over at my house, and usually end up hooking my laptop up to a big TV so me and a couple friends can all play all kinds of multiplayer games (either emulated or off of steam).
       
      But I was recently thinking that it would be fun to get a projector set up, so that we could play on a huge blank wall in my living room.
       
      With that being said: I'm new to purchasing projectors, so I'm not familiar with what kinds of features/specifications I should be looking for (and I'd like to keep the cost down if it's possible).
       
      So I was wondering if anyone has any advice for me on what to look for in features/specifications, affordable places to buy from, or just general info on what I'm trying to do. 
       
      Any help would be super appreciated!
