to an latitude 7390 - i5-8250u @ 1.8ghz, 16gb ddr4, 256gb m.2 ssd
less weight but keyboard sucks and it overheats doing basic stuff (such as an av scan) unless you disable intel turbo boost. dell say thats the fix for their bad cooling design Confused

Overheating isn't problem of Dell, its problem of Intel. Those processors simply sux. Its 5 years old architecture (Skylake core architecture) and even manufacturing process (14nm) is 5 years old. You can't rise number of cores and frequencies without problems with heat and high power consumption. And this is the reason, why Intel processors throttling and overheating in laptops.

About myself. I forgot to post, that I upgraded my custoMac. I needed more computing power so I was looking for 8-core CPU. Finally I decided to buy cheap and powerful setup for multimedia.
My current setup:

  • Gigabyte B450 Aorus Elite
  • AMD Ryzen 7 2700x @ 4GHz
  • 16GB DDR4 3000MHz
  • Sapphire Radeon Rx480 4GB
  • 500GB SSD + 250GB SSD + 3TB HDD + BD-RE
  • Chieftec 650W 80+ Gold
  • Corsair Carbide 300R
  • LMP KB-1243-SG + Logitech M705
