Why are laptops so shit nowadays? The good ones are overpriced as hell for what they give in return

Laptops were always shit. Take off your nostalgia goggles.

Nope. You are used to paying almost nothing for underperforming crap that breaks just out of warranty.
Would you eat McDonalds if you could afford prime steak? Would you eat ramen?

I'd much rather eat delicious McD's and ramen than a shitty raw undercooked bleeding slab of flavorless flesh that needs a gallon of sauce on it just to make it edible.

turth hurts?

matte is just blurry blobs and gloss is mirror like. any issues you have viewing your display outside is purely a brightness issue; the added benefit of gloss is it doesn't look like someone smeared petroleum jelly all over your shit.

>>45320146
Right, and every matte screen in my house looks crystal clear because my eyes don't work.

>>45320153
probably.

matte looks like shit; hell most panels aren't even full blown matte anymore because it looks like complete shit.

This is the silly thing. I got the Nexus 5 and compared the 1080p screen to the 720p screen for detail. My eyes just couldn't tell which was which, and the Nexus 5 suffers in performance for being 1080p.

Retina is just about pixel density, but there's a limit to where that makes practical sense.
>>
>>45320241
Hi Ray Charles.
>>
>>45320258
This isn't retards comparing DVD to Bluray and saying they couldn't see the difference. When I owned the Nexus 4, I was already blown away by the pixel density. The Nexus 5 doesn't look any more impressive in that regard.

Guys, recommend me a laptop. I'm thinking of jumping into a thinkpad but then I'd have to customize it, right? I'm interested in gaymen but not at optimal settings and using FL studio because I'm a tool, but also just general fuckers like YouTube.

Tldr: best general laptop for price?
>>
>>45320501
Y40 for $600.

Y50 for $1000. Though, almost any brand at $1000 will have an i7-4700MQ model, except Apple which will give you a shit tier ULV i5-4200U.

They used to offer DVD drives, more ports, the option to easily replace stuff etc. but the hard drive sizes were really small and their graphical and processing capabilities weren't that solid.

I need to install Gentoo, but getting a newer system would be nice. I'm cheap though.

Yoga 2 13" i5
Zenbook 13" i5
Vaio Fit 13" i5

Same price range, same specs and I'm still undecided. I really think MBA is not an option as it fails in either price, processor or resolution depending on mode

Normally I'd agree with you, seeing as HP's consumer range is absolute garbage, but Pro/EliteBooks before Ultrabook designs are built to that same standard testing ThinkPads go through.

Well at least this model was anyway.
