Why does /g/ hate on gaming laptops so much? I'm talking about midrange, not the power hog 980 SLI systems.
I admit that some are absolute shit (Dell/Alienware), but there are a lot of budget systems that are pretty awesome.
Thermal Throttling is not near as bad as it has been in the past. There are many systems that run the CPU and GPU at the base clock without throttling.
The specs are closer to desktops now. Pretty much every laptop will have a 4710HQ or higher, which is more than enough to run any games. GPUs are a bit weaker, but still a mid range laptop GPU will run all modern games at 1080P with medium settings. 16Gb isn't hard to come by either.
They are really thin now as well. All of them are less than an inch thick now. Less than an inch for a laptop that has a full 4C8T Haswell i7 that keeps it's base clock. Pretty impressive.
Battery life isn't an issue either. Most people force their dedicated GPU to run and leave Turbo boost on. If you Throttle your CPU down and use the intel GPU, you can get 5 hours of battery life easily.
Is a huge desktop really worth $1000 more to play games at ultra than the sub $1000 laptop range to have something completely portable? Also, since people love to shit on AMD for power consumption, try comparing a 135w max laptop vs your 700W+ desktop system, excluding monitor.
It just makes no sense why people bash them so hard now. 3 Years ago they sucked, but now they are great.

Who even plays games anymore, grow up
The only one that's even passable is Razer blade, and that's just a MacBook clone
Why doesnt your phone have a 4k display?

Has anyone tried PCI passthrough on a Linux host to a Windows guest?
I want to run Windows in a VM and give it ownership of the discrete graphics card.
How are the framerates? Is Windows crashy in a VM? Is Arch the only suitable distro? Because while Arch is nice, I like the stability that Debian offers.
I currently do this, and it works great.
The framerate appears to be more or less the same as bare metal.
Pretty much every guide I've seen suggests using rolling-release or bleeding-edge distros. I use Fedora 23 (with virtualisation packages from rawhide) and haven't had any problems yet.
Also, what graphics card are you getting?
I think there's only a handful of K Intel processors that support VT-d.
Where are the homescreen threads?
I can't see one in the catalogue...
