P1 Gen 3 - wow this IR Webcam quality is sad!

2020-10-23, 13:11 PM

After having to RMA my original P1 Gen 3 for the camera/lid close sensor assembly not working at all, i'm shocked on my new replacement unit how bad the IR Webcam 720p photo quality is!  It's like i'm taking pictures with my 2004 Nokia phone even in decent light!  Sure, this is a business class machine, etc, but come on, there has to be something better to put in a $3000 top end workstation!  Heads up to anyone thinking a new laptop will make their remote work Zoom meetings better, you probably still will want an external 1080p webcam...
