In this week’s The Full Nerd, Gordon Mah UngBrad ChacosAlaina Yee, and Adam Patrick Murray talk about Microsoft’s Surface Laptop: a $1,000-plus notebook with 4GB of memory, a nerfed version of Windows 10, and no way to upgrade the storage. You can guess how that goes.

After that we get geeky, talking about outrage over Radeon drivers dropping Quake Champions links onto people’s desktops without permission, then we move on to the difference between reference and custom graphics card coolers. And finally, as always, the gang wraps things up by answering questions sent in by readers or asked in the moment by the live audience.
