Me want that laptop.

It is a bit unfortunate, however, that the screen is 1366x768 TN panel. I was pretty sure that we were done with those cheap 768p panels. But I guess I was wrong.

I own one. Its a reaaaaaly bad screen. Luckily, for $75 you can get a replacement aftermarket 4k that's decent, supposedly. I'll upgrade mine once my warranty expires.

4k screen with a 960m...That clashes my frind. I suppose if you made all games 1080p it wouldn't look bad.

I haven't had any hands on experience with any of the Killer Network devices. From what I read, they've been adding some improvements to the Network eco-system.

Since you rarely have control over the type of Ethernet port/chipset that will be in your devices, will a KNS router improve your network experience?

If so, which router would you recommend and how should you set it up.

Scenario: WAN 5.0/0.5MBps Bandwidth. YouTube performance on SmartTV-Wireless is low/stalls. Performance worsen while Gaming on both clients.

Netflix appears to be better optimized than YouTube, but performance seem to decrease the most when a client is gaming.

1366x768... why, just why? end the suffering!

Looks like my last hour on the clock Monday will be occupied with something other than work..

This ole' man will be watching. Thanks for the "heads-up"!

How can you call this a gaming laptop with 768 screen, that's so last century?
I doubt it even needs a graphic card in it for that...

December 4, 2015 | 06:52 PM - Posted by funandjam

I think the main thing people are missing about this laptop is that it is compatible with their external GPU box(graphics amplifier).

Even the iPad has better resolution when on the go. The laptop is really useless for any useful use. That is why they are trying to dump it. The company is trying to tell the world they make sucky products.

Sweet... that laptop is everything I wanted. Ever since I got a job away from home, im away from my gaming desktop and always wanted to buy a new gaming laptop... but budget issue always stopped me from getting 1. Hope to win this :)

In a world where mobile devices become ever so common, are there any plans to bring Killer networks technology into phones or tablets?

December 7, 2015 | 02:02 PM - Posted by Jim Bryant (not verified)

People, give me a break. Free is free. They don't have to do these. I'd be grateful to win one to replace my aging Core2 Duo laptop.

December 7, 2015 | 02:32 PM - Posted by mohamedkamel

Think I'll be there :)

Any chance you could add "live in x hours" to your notifications instead of "at x PST" etc. that means nothing to us foreigners.
I know my smartwatch could tell me if I asked "what time x PST is in local time", but god dangit, I don't like technology.
No wait...

How is Linux support looking for Ethernet as well as this new Wi-Fi mu-mimo from Killer Networking

December 9, 2015 | 02:01 PM - Posted by Jann5s

same question here

December 7, 2015 | 03:08 PM - Posted by BerbaBog

this could be informative me needing new router and possibly new network card ,i think mine is like 100mb old realtek from 2008

December 7, 2015 | 05:09 PM - Posted by xRageMachine

Nos a bad laptop at all, still i think that for the price dell shold have gone for a bit better panel (defenitelly not TN) and the 4GB of ram isnt too nice either. STIll, my laptop is dying from watching the livestream in 720p... Keeps crashing. Another thing i hate about my laptop is that altho i get 200Mbps internet (ik for sure that that is coming to my house, tried with my sisters laptop that has an intel card, i only get 150Mbps :c)

What I want to know is why KIller has not made a Router Or a modem? Why is the 1st thing to get Gaming packets not made by... Killer? I have a Asus Ac66r And Gaming wise its great updated. But What can Killer offer to Make me want to Upgrade to a better router?
Also I absolutely hate your UI on the Application. It feels quite dated and in my experience with it the application has hung and froze for long times.. It feels very flashish. This is Still a concern to me and I wish to go back to Killer one day.

Who won?

December 8, 2015 | 07:29 PM - Posted by NamelessTed

Thought this stream was going to be lame, but that was one impressive demo showing bandwidth prioritization with the torrents, youtube, and game latency.

If they released a PCI-E wireless AC + gigabit NIC I might actually be tempted to buy one. If I were in the market for a whole new system a mobo with killer might finally be a selling point, but I can't justify buying a whole motherboard just for those features.

Again, really surprised by the demo you guys recorded. Much more impressive than I ever would have guessed. Would love to see more tests.
