I prefer no built in webcam. There is a rather serious & intelligent conversation ongoing about privacy that involves cameras coming pre-installed on devices. But it's more than that even. It's a quality & cost factor too. And a user experience factor.
If I'm paying $1200 for a long term device I don't want a poor quality webcam preinstalled that will only add weight and additional cost. I will add a standalone camera and upgrade it as time progresses to take advantage of ongoing tech improvements. Better experience and less weight. Also, one less preinstalled utility to dislike having. Some of these preinstalled cameras are only addressable using the OEM's crappy software.
As expected, Zen 2 is a monster on mobile due to its power efficiency. The laptop reviewed in Linus's video is pretty spectacular, especially @ $1500. The fact that AMD is now competing in performance and killing Intel in performance-per-watt is great news for the mobile market.
I almost wanted to buy that laptop (I have an alienware 15r2 with i7-6700hq/gtx970m and my wife an 2012 Macbook Air) as our laptops (especially hers) are outdated but in the current climate and under my situation, I have to refrain from buying a laptop. The upgrade budget had to be cut and only the 3080TI/big Navi are on it at this point. That and I don't see us travelling for the next year to two so its just going to be an utter waste of cash that i will need to do the upgrade from the 3950x to Intel 7nm desktop in 2022.
I mean, did you even read/watch any of the reviews? You're getting a lot for your $1500...
Not to mention those stock webcams you get on almost all laptops are utter garbage anyway, you're much better off spending $60 on a Logitech one if you really need it.(which also happen to include a better mic)
And if you don't need one, its money, space and weight saved. Win/win if you ask me.
