first_img Origin PC Eon-17X 60.22 Price as reviewed (USD) 30,271 We’ve seen a handful of these ambitious experiments over the years, and right now two of the latest models have just been tested in the CNET Labs. The Alienware Area-51m and Origin PC Eon-17X both feature the desktop-class Intel Core i9-9900K and the new Nvidia RTX 2080 GPU. This combination made these our two top-performing laptops so far from all of 2018-2019. What’s the difference between these two? Here’s where they diverge. Cost The Alienware is a hefty $4,499 as configured, which is pretty far up the laptop scale. The very similar Origin we tested (note it has 16GB of RAM versus 32GB in the Alienware) rings up at about $3,800. Component prices can shift quickly, so build-to-order systems like this may cost more or less depending on exactly when you order. Design Both of these are huge, desk-hogging monsters. For the Area-51m, Alienware says it spent years working on a top-to-bottom redesign. In my opinion, it doesn’t go far enough, but it’s still a carefully designed, aesthetically pleasing laptop that makes the most of its bulk. The Eon-17X, as in the case of most boutique gaming laptops, is built into a generic-looking off-the-shelf chassis that has hardly changed over the past few years. Many custom lid color and illustration options are available, but let’s just say that you’re really going for inner beauty here. Upgradability User-accessible parts have really been a major selling point of the Area-51m. Its desktop CPU can be replaced, and so can its semicustom GPU. But, it’s not easy to get to those parts without doing some midlevel surgery on your system, and the GPU can only be replaced by hypothetical future compatible parts, which don’t yet exist. Origin PC doesn’t promise CPU or GPU upgrades, but the company does offer free labor on RAM and storage upgrades if you send the system to them. Origin PC, in addition to its stellar reputation for hands-on support, offers a much wider array of configuration options in its system-building tool, so you should be able to hit your dream specs pretty closely from the start.  01-gaming-comparison-laptops Sarah Tew/CNET These are both great gaming laptops, aimed at slightly different slices of the same high-end market. If you’re looking for a laptop with the beating heart of a desktop, here’s our head-to-head guide to these two leading choices.

Back then, you often paid a significant premium for much slower performance, and your laptop graphics hardware wouldn’t age well at all. Over time, however, the difference has narrowed significantly. So much so that starting with the GeForce GTX 10 series in 2016 and continuing with the new RTX 20 series, GPU leader Nvidia no longer splits mobile graphics off into a separate product line. The desktop and laptop versions share the same names and very close to the same capabilities. But while gaming laptops are better than ever, thanks in part to those Nvidia’s GTX and RTX GPUs, there’s yet another level serious laptop gamers can aspire to. A very few laptops go that extra mile and include actual desktop components inside oversize laptop frames. 17.3-inch, 1,920×1,080 display 1:53 Alienware Area-51m See the Area-51m at AlienwareSee the Eon-17X at Origin PC Note: Longer bars indicate better performance.

first_imgPresident Pranab Mukherjee signed two key ordinances Friday, clearing the way for the auction of coal blocks that were ordered cancelled by the Supreme Court, and for a hike in foreign equity cap in the insurance industry from 26 percent to 49 percent.The legislations for the two measures could not be taken up in the Rajya Sabha as the opposition did not allow the upper house, where the government is in minority, to conduct business during the last few days of the winter session that ended Tuesday.A cabinet meeting Wednesday, presided over by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, decided to issue the two ordinances so as to send a strong signal that the government will pursue reforms and would not allow disruptions in parliament to come in the way, an official said.The ordinance on coal is necessary for the government to hold auctions for the blocks that were ordered cancelled by the Supreme Court, while that on insurance will operationalise the reforms in the sector, the bill for which was okayed by the Select Committee of the Rajya Sabha.”With the repromulgation of the ordinance on coal, the unfinished process of allocations can begin again,” Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said after the cabinet decision, adding that reforms will not be halted if the opposition does not cooperate.The government has, in fact, moved quickly on the coal auctions.A day after the cabinet approval for the allocation of coal blocks, a web portal was formally launched for e-auction of 24 coal mines which will be held in February. Soon after, the tender documents were also released.”Twenty-four blocks are being put up for auction in the first stage. The process will benifit the common man. Power tariff will not go up, I assure you, because in this case it will be reverse bidding, and tariffs will come down,” Coal and Power Minister Piyush Goel said.On insurance, the industry expects the upward revision in the foreign equity limits to result in an additional capital infusion of around Rs.50,000 crore ($8 billion) by 2020. This apart, it is also expected to help in increasing insurance penetration that is abysmally low now.The Indian insurance sector has 52 players — 28 in non-life business and 24 in life.last_img

first_imgTwitter/Cricket World CupThe Indian cricket team were spotted enjoying at a beach in North Sound taking a much-needed break from their hectic schedule.A picture was posted by Virat Kohli on Instagram which featured vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma, Ishant Sharma, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Jasprit Bumrah and Mayank Agarwal along with the captain. The caption of the picture read,  “Stunning day at the beach with the boys.”It was the first time after a long gap that Kohli and Rohit featured in the same picture which aroused many questions about their current relationship. It seems that both the experienced campaigners have put aside all supposed bitterness between them for the benefit of the team.The 32-year-old Indian opener can be seen showing a victory sign while the Indian captain is smiling in the picture. This will be great news for Indian cricket fans as the speculations of the rift were getting stronger day by day. But is everything fine between the Kohli and Rohit?In the picture, if we look closely, then we can see that the 30-year-old Indian skipper and Rohit are far away from each other. Kohli is at the centre of the image whereas Rohit is at the right end of the picture posted by the former. Moreover, in the photograph, Rohit can be seen with Ajinkya Rahane who was not selected in the Indian team for the World Cup. Was it because Rahane is close to Rohit?There may be nothing between them but still, it creates certain questions about the rift.Earlier, after India were knocked out of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, there were speculations of a rift between Kohli and Sharma. Rumours regarding the formation of two groups within the side , one led by Kohli and another by Sharma started making waves in the media.  Getty Images/ICCThe Indian captain himself stated that there are no problems between them in the pre-departure press conference of the West Indies tour. But their activities on social media helped the speculations gain ground.In recent times, Rohit was seen chilling with some players where Kohli was missing and the Indian skipper posted a photo of the squad from which the 32-year-old opener was missing. But the latest post by the Indian skipper on Instagram can be a good sign for Indian cricket as it seems that everything is getting better.Team India will take on West Indies in the first Test match of the two-match series at Antigua on August 22. After winning the ODI series and the T20 series 2-0 and 3-0 respectively, the Men in Blue will go into the fixture riding high on confidence.last_img
