I have.

What are you intending to play though, dedicated GPU or not, it's underpowered from actual GPUs.

I'm gonna hard disagree there. Customer support is whack, stock levels are a lie, they've let me down 3 times last year out of the 4 orders I did with them and I won't be using them again.

I haven't bought a laptop from Scan but I've done several desktop builds with components bought from them and their service has been good.

i don`t play games .. the functionality is required for my mappin software .. which is graphics intense .. particular on high resolution when scrolling... the added cpu processing is most usefully welcome for its quickness..

OC were good about 15+ years ago. Used to visit them a lot.

With regards to my post above, I may have made a cheeky ebay offer and won an Alienware x17 R2.

Is it actually using the GPU as a processing affinity?

I just feel if it's 'power' you need, a desktop cpu is going to outclass a laptop one.

At best find the best Ryzen chip on a laptop you can find.

It's not premium brand

But that sort of processor is the lowest I'd take these days.

We don't know the spec of the current laptop. We don't know much about the requirements. It could be that the current one was cheap 7 years ago, and something upper mid range would do the job nicely for the next while.
