  1. Hey everyone! Loving all the feedback so far! Please tell us what you liked (and what you didn't) about this episode. We want to make the best show for you. What products would you like us to review next? Thanks!

  2. Inconsistent methodology on the last test. Would the entry level Dell at 899 have the same test results as the Apple if used in the entire comparison? Seems like you blew your review on the last item. Still informative and thank you for the review.

  3. U asked for peoples feedback and u say they are wrong! Aren't you jus wasting their time?! What's the point of asking peoples opinion then?!

  4. The people are wrong because you got yourself a group of muggles, however you yourselves are a group of muggles since you obviously do not know how to make a laptop review 🙂

  5. I enjoyed this! You know, Dan Ackerman has been with CNET for almost 14 years…which is almost 6 months, but not quite.

  6. If the performance "doesn't really matter", then why did you choose a laptop made by a gaming-dedicated company?? Maybe we want to play light games on our laptops, and that blanket assumption was most likely incorrect.

  7. I think the Razer is better because it have a discrete graphics card, RGB keyboard which I absolutely love, big trackpad, and the very bright screen. I dont know if it supports Windows Hello…

  8. not fair to razor, it isn't a normal everyday laptop, its an effing gaming laptop plus "disco laptop' SERIOUSLY.

  9. Woke generation reviews….. CNET guy is a joke – 50% of reviews downgrade this video … 2,500 thumbs down – says it all. CNEt should hire from Russia or India where fanatics are just that – fanatics. Here, I have never seen such a superficial review. Time to put this CNET reviewer out to pasture…. lazy bum

  10. The pro guy brought in from cnet is an idiot…14 years with cnet and his battery test was stream a movie….. sophisticated lot at CNET – or very simolistic. Measures battery with no consideration to screen resolution (mac is 1/2 that of the Dell) – did he use a Dell with a 2K screen and throttle back the Dell CPU that is running twice as fast and is twice as effective?

  11. If you were going to use the cheaper one for the price then why not test the cheaper one instead of the expensive one its not fair.

  12. Great Content again by CNET. We have also created a video for 7 best laptops for gaming and programming. You can check that too !!👈

  13. I bought a hp envy 360 and 800 dollars and I have so many many regrets, it broke right after my warranty wore off

  14. So. This is a CNET review, is it? Is this what it has come to? This is possibly the worst, most useless, superficial review in a good, long time! Little more than a superficial beauty contest for laptops. They seem to have missed out one slightly important category, here – USEABILITY! Pathetic!

  15. Not an Apple fan but hands down, in this comparison its the best. Why constantly downscore it and give dell higher points. Is the video sponsored by dell? Not impressed at all.
