If you want to use wireless then yes. I'm using it wired. (USB-C cable)  

 

No. Works on bluetooth. But works better with receiver.

Most modern Xbone or Series X controllers your find on Amazon/FK now work via bluetooth for wireless

iirc there is a button on the top of the controllers that you press for pairing.

Thanks. I was using an xbox 360 controller before this. Feeling like this one is lighter and a little smaller. I like the weight of the 360 controller more but I like the texture of this one.

Got a laptop (Legion 5 Pro), Apple TV 4k, and a charger (Vapcell S4 Plus) for son, wife and myself respectively.

 

 

 

How's the L5P ? I read some models had screen issues. How's the battery ? 

Not looking for gaming (beyond some indies), but more for photo editing, minor work and consumption standpoint. Initially finalized the L5P, but now looking at Zenbook OLED models - probably will get better battery life. 

Recommendations ?

I got it for my son so it will be used mainly as plugged in but i did some checks by adding him to use during the class unplugged and it still had around 50%left after 3-3.5 hours of online class. So looks to be decent enough. Not that i had the balanced mode turned on in their vantage software. You can go up and down this number by changing the mode. You’ll surely not get as much as you would get on a model without the dedicated gpu. Also it’s very heavy if that’sa consideration. One good thing vs most others (including asus zen) is that Lenovo warranty is better. Also for this model, Lenovo gives 3 year premium warranty.
No issues on my model wrt screen etc. There’s a minor problem that the laptop seems to detect the rgb keyboard as normal white one and thus the built in key combos to turn on/off/change pattern don’t work. Apparently lots of ppl are facing this issue but i was able to fix it by using a third party software someone wrote for Lenovo laptops keyboards.

2mm was available for 799 on Amazon I think.

If you want to properly repad a 3080/3090 AIB card then various thickness thermal pads would be required and some of them are not available in India/absurdly priced.

No they aren't. I used a freight forwarding service.

Cool, which one? Do share your details and experience.

In this case I used Buyandship but only because they have a China warehouse. Otherwise Hopshopgo and Shopandship for US/Europe.

 

I really did not want to order from China as it often gets caught up in Indian cutoms and then its a hassle to get it released.

 

Also Aliexpress will take your Photo ID proof alongwith a picture of yourself holding the card and latest bank statement! I was desperate as my 3080 was overheating otherwise I wouldn't have complied with such absurd demands.

 

The goods took 7-10 days to reach the warehouse and then some more days to reach Hong Kong. From Hong Kong it reached me in 5 days I think. 

 

For peace of mind, I reckon you should order from Amazon US as it is so much smoother. Buy pads during sale. Almost equal to Aliexpress price sometimes!

 

Overall cost was 5.5k for 10 pads of various sizes.
