Mainly going to use it for Excel, Outlook, Adobe, PPT, Word.

          This is where Microsoft was always on point:
          The rule of computing is the fact if you are not using your cpu 100% every day it is wasted resource.
          MS is kindly taking care of this.

      I'm using Microsoft products, why would I use a MacBook? I know all the shortcuts.

      you did great friend, you're gonna make it.

      Thanks kind anon!

      Should have bought an XPS.

      Should have gotten a 16" M3 Ultra MBP

      What's good about your laptops vs the one I got?
      I can return it, can you send me a link?
      Will it be the same price?

        bc for what youre doing microsoft vs apple doesnt really matter and apple has the best build quality and battery life period
        but even if you prefer microsoft you probably wouldve still been better off with something lighter, more portable, more durable, and with longer battery life

    depends on what your previous pc / laptop is, but since you aren't a gamer you are fine.
    this is what I would consider a league of legends budget gaming PC, the best way of using this laptop is by treating it like a desktop and plugging it into a proper monitor, disable the laptop display using windows display settings, and plug a mouse.
    I probably would have suggested you to buy a mini-pc but if you get infrequent power outages, the battery is nice.

      My previous laptop was a Lenovo 230T from 2013, i7, 16gb ram, 256gb SSD x 2.

      he's 100% going to need that power when running microbloat software

      I'm going to delete all the unnecessary apps.

      Pretty good specs for $800, you did fine. That being said it IS way overkill for office shit so you probably could've gotten something cheaper too.

      What alternatives can you suggest?

        >What alternatives can you suggest?
        I'm not up to date on the laptop market to suggest specific models, but if your only use case is office work then you definitely don't need 32GB RAM and could've done fine with 16 and you don't need a dedicated graphics card at all either. 1TB storage is also quite a lot for office documents, but you're the one who knows how much shit you're going to store on it, or not.

        Still that 16GB RAM / 256GB SSD model is only $100 cheaper so for the $100 difference I would've bought the faster one too, but I imagine you could find an even cheaper laptop with somewhat worse specs somewhere else.

      The shortcuts that I know like the back of my hand are different on MacBook.

      Any suggestions?

      That's exactly why I just said screw it and bought the 32gb and 1tb version.
      I read online that 16gb might be too little for what I was doing so that's why I went with the 32gb.
      I agree that the graphics card makes no sense, but I figured I got a good enough deal that I still came out well.
      What do you think?

      Also forgot to post my last laptop.
      Lenovo X230T.

        Yeah, it's overpowered but a pretty damn solid deal, no reason to fret about it much.

    I have a similar model (older GF65-Thin, same chassis, i5 9300H, RTX2060)
    good overall but has some weak points: poor cooling, awful battery life (expect an hour when gayming, 3 to 4 hours of web browsing on wifi with minimum brightness), wifi issues, horrible trackpad
    good screen (mine's a 1080p 120Hz), good keyboard, good performance, mine shipped without an OS (yes, that's a plus, I use Arch on it now so frick paying extra for shitblows 10), lots of IO (ethernet AND full size HDMI? frick yeah)

    Cheaper for you to upgrade the ram and storage yourself and you would get much more out of that upgrade if you went with the max amount you can fit. Once you do that though you can have that computer last 10 years or more if that is the only thing you are using it for.
