      It's doesn't, but it doesn't need it also. With Active Sync, the system dynamically changes between the iGPU and dGPU outputs

    Just has a sunken rectangle compared to A15 with nice dedicated touchpad buttons.

    I guess the BIOS doesn't allow for the up to -80mv undervolt like the M15 had?? Sad news.. could have saved even more heat/throttling with that.

      Ha, didn't think about it, but I haven't properly checked for undervolting options in BIOS. perhaps someone else can do it, I no longer have this around

    Hi there!

    I'm considering buying this laptop (the 3060 version) but I'm having doubts whether to go for this laptop or an alternative.

    Other options that I'm considering are the Azerty (or Aeon) Luma and the MSI Gaming GF65 10UE-031NL.

    I'll be using the laptop for my studies (a multi-core laptop with dedicated gpu and 16RAM is required) and gaming. Furthermore, because I'll be carrying it a lot and will be using it on location(s), I prefer a lightweight model (max 2kg) and a device with a decent to good battery life. As for gaming, I'm looking to play recent games at medium to high settings.

    I'm on a budget of max. EUR 1100.

    Would you say the Dash F15 is the best option or would you recommend one of the other two, or perhaps an entirely different device?

    Hope you could give your opinion on this.

    Thanks a lot!

      I can't comment on the other two since I haven't reviewed any of them, but I think the 3060 version of this laptop is a fair option, if competitively priced and as long as you don't need a more powerful CPU in multi-threaded workloads, as the Tiger Lake H35 is only 4Core.

      Does it come with the 144 hz screen in that configuration? If yes, look into more details about that panel, it might be the same option from the A15 series, with slower response times and poor colors. That could be a deal-breaker
