Opinions? Seen a few people with issues installing Kali but I'm sure hat will be resolved.

Should be good for gaming too

Is this normal?

Seems good on the shell. But a few questions must be asked.

Is it an Optimus device? If so, does it have a MUX?
If it doesn't have a MUX, do *NOT* buy.

What brand is it? How good is its construction quality?

Is it known for heating up too much?

>memelake
idk desu senpai, but I'm 100% certain that this is THE CPU to have NSA backdoors.
but eh, take that with a grain of salt.

>>51386801
Seriously don't get a non-MUX'd Optimus system, I regret it evry dey.

No really, this is one of the most important rule when shopping for laptops with a dGPU

This is the product, seen some good reviews but can't find anything recent. Have purchased and can always send it back if it doesn't meet my criteria

I see. Well, just call them and ask if you can disable the integrated graphics/if the laptop's display can be directly connected to the Nvidia card.

If you can't, then I really would recommend against buying it, Nvidia Optimus is a poop technology, and it never works right.

Buyer's remorse 24/7 since I bought a laptop without a MUX
>>
>>51386341
What OS?
>>
>>51387505
Windows 8.1 but I have my own key

Will be putting Kali 2.0 on there too, seen some teething issues with the CPU registering on live boot
>>
>>51387356

I have made the enquiry, thanks dude

May I ask, why you're using Kali on a laptop?
>>
>>51388327
Also, since you're interested in Linux, if you decide to buy a laptop without a MUX and ignore my advice, just know there's no Optimus support for Linux (It hardly even works right on Winblows) and the only way you can get it to work is by Xorg hackery, which eats a nice chunk out of performance (20~%) and is also messy, and buggy.

Really, OP, get a MUX or just use integrated graphics.

Also, by any chance, are you going to use the dGPU to crack passwords? Since you mention Kali? If so, then I'd really suggest getting a non-gaymer laptop (Gaming laptops are inferior to laptops designed to be, you know, laptops, especially thermally.) and just cracking your passwords on cloud computing, like those from Amazon or Jewgle.

Your experience will be better.

Dont know why people still buy 960m laptops. Literally an 860m(2013) rebrand with and extra 2gb memory to distract from that fact.

There is a very large gap between a 960m and 970m.

A 960m is going to struggle to get 60fps on most new releases at 1080p.

The 965m is what the 960m should have been.
