The gum contains no fat and protein and features a refreshing and invigorating mint flavor.

AMD are going to need it with their CCX/IO latency issues. Provided they can get the IMC to support above 3600Mhz reliably.

Probably all made in the same factory as the others then put in different packaging. Thats the thing with foods and supplements designed for the sports industry. The packaging has all this B.S about vitamins and minerals, a load of science jargon to make it sound like youre receiving the holy grail of sport snacks/drinks but no regular joe is going to break out their science kit they got given for christmas and boil/melt everything down and analyse all of the compounds & other elements that exist inside whatever it is to find out if what the packaging says is in it is actually in it.

You will still get a boost from the sugar and caffeine though but the rest is just a placebo effect.

Gaming is the big buzz word. Like Gunnar "Gaming Glasses" You can buy any cheap glasses from the dollar store but these are "Gaming Glasses" -- all marketing speak.

I'm not fond of large laptops that have small keyboards. It looks wrong to me, seems like wasted space, wasted opportunity, and using them feels weird because the whole keyboard just seems pushed to the right when I use one.

Even if you don't use a numpad, the fact that it fills up the chassis helps shift the QWERTY keys to the left which also compensates for the mouse hand off to the right.

At the very least, if you're gonna have gaps either side of the keyboard, move the speakers to there so that you can move the whole keyboard closer to the screen making room for a bigger trackpad! There's nothing premium about a cramped layout that forces a smaller trackpad to be used....

Looks great, definitely would buy this over the vast majority of bulky, ugly trash out there now. To anyone who really insists on a number pad, just start putting a bunch of numbers in your passwords, you'll learn to touch type them using the normal number keys like God intended in no time.
