I can read reviews at work. I can't watch videos there, and I can't multitask while listening to something.

Hopefully by the time it's mandatory I'll be able to watch videos at home, but for now the kids are monopolizing the PC.

The PCWorld video summary was an amusing addition to the written review.

They tested one of my main games (Wildlands) at my current gaming resolution (2560x1440) using a similar GPU to my own (GTX 1080):

Doh, apparently adding a question negates all previous responses; how embarassing. :oops:

I voted for Nbr. 2, but I'm also waiting for TR's review because while quantity is nice, I want the quality TR always delivers.
