              Someone gave me an Lenovo Ideapad Z510 Laptop. After I press the power button, the cooler speens very fast for 2-3 seconds and after that it's shutting down. It's not showing anything on the screen, doesn't make any sound/beep.. All I know is that the guy tried to change the CPU (from i3 ti i5 - compatible one).. But one screw from the cpu got broken and he bend a little bit the heat sink enough to take the cpu out. Can you please tell me if that could be the cause? Or the Mother board(capacitors maybe?)?. Thank you.

                              I had a laptop for over ten years and took it overseas that never died on me, just got outdated. Since your last model bottomed out does that reflect the overall quality of that brand?

                              I will say you have great knowledge and I look forward to your next video but do you have a video out yet about very dependable laptops? It's great to know and understand specs but totally useless if they simply stop working. I'm trying to find a non-gaming laptop for my wife that will give her browsing speed and maybe even come with software for standard office and minor photo editing tools. It's so difficult to rely on brand names now-a-days because they all claim to be the best.

                                          Normal people would RMA the laptop and wait using their older ones until RMA finished.
                                          Linus, sees an opportunity to make a video and just gets a new laptop, cuz fuck RMA's. xD

                                              Imagine having your razer laptop die on you in two years and saying "Hmm yes I think I'll buy another laptop from this same company" of course it doesnt help that razer had had quality control issues for almost 2 years now as well

                                                  You said yourself that razer laptops never last more than 2 years, then you picked razer again. That doesn't make any sense, you say build quality is good when clearly that's not the case if your own laptop broke after 1 year...
