I've been on the go a lot recently and haven't been able to shitpost as much, so I was wondering what would be a good device to shitpost from on the go that wouldn't weigh a lot or take up much space yet still be comfy to use.
>>
Any phone made recently?
Or like a weird device? I always wanted one of these. pic gets me everytime
>>
>>52692519
Phones really aren't comfy for shitposting though, as it takes a long time to type out a post and god help you if you try to quote multiple people. There's also the problem of it regularly refreshing pages when you go between tabs so you have to find the last post you read.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you’re referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I’ve recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project. There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use.
Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine’s resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

i bought a viliv s7 a few months ago from south korea complete with korean kb for $200+40 shipping. i have xp on it atm but it came with win8 which ran awfully fucking slowly.
bought it to have a dinky little computer (guess i got what i paid for eh?) read ebooks and comics on it and play some 90s games on it but even those games run awfully sluggishly and the screen looks pretty bad when turned 90 degrees.
thinking about installing linux on it and see how well it runs then.
all i really wanted was a decent running small laptop form factor computer like all those umpcs but nobody makes them anymore, its all just tablets and i want a unit i can prop up with a keyboard

I have one of the (older) versions of that that ran windows CE, looks identical to that though. People got debian onto it, although with 128mb ram and a 300mhz processor it isn't useful for much besides irssi and links2 in framebuffer mode.

Did a bit more research. You can put Linux on the newer ones that use the dual core WM8880 SOC, you just don't get any support for sound, wifi, or the SD card reader. The older ones that use the single core WM8850 or even older WM8650 apparently will work halfway decent.

I'd just go for used netbooks really, if tablets aren't your thing. eee pc:s, lenovo and so on should be decent choices.

they can be found for cheap and they're easy to set up to be usable since they're x86 and not something less standard for desktop OS

RAM is always upgradeable and so are HDD:s, batteries also replaceable, though some may have relatively bad battery lives

I've come to the conclusion that the best option for portability and functionality is one of those x86 full Windows tablets. I'm just disappointed that most of them only have 1gb of RAM, it's just not enough for my uses. Ideally I'd like 4gb, but 2gb would work. Paired with a bluetooth keyboard it combines the portability and functionality I want.

I've tried Android tablets, but they're just too limited. Only really good for reading or videos.

They're a little heavier than I want, but I'm probably going to settle for a used Surface Pro 2 with the extended battery keyboard.

Exactly how usable nowdays are the older netbooks with processors worse than the Atom N270 such as the Celeron Ms and VIAs? Can you watch videos on Youtube on them? Can you even do normal browsing without it lagging like hell? Looking at benchmarks, the processors seem to be significantly weaker than a single core from my smartphone from 2012 with the Atom N270 being comparable to one core.

Atoms seems to be right at the border of usefulness. 480p youtube videos are without slowdowns.

I like the Dell 910 better than those.

http://www.ebay.com/sch/Laptops-Netbooks-/175672/i.html?_from=R40&_sop=15&_nkw=dell+910

Same processor, same resolution, smaller screen so better DPI. Doesn't look like a 4-year old's play toy, but at 9" the keyboard is a little cramped. I still like the 9" because I already have several "real" laptops and the whole point of this is to be small. I'd love it if I could find cheap, usable computers at the 7" or 5" size but they don't seem to exist.

The 910 takes rare half-size, PATA-over-mPCI drives so if that ugly HP thing takes full size drives that's a point in it's favor. If you're looking for a 10.1" netbook I'd recommend one of the later asus eee pc's like the 1015 series.

>>52712527
If all you want is a strict shitposting machine, you can get by with 128 MB if you want. I regularly post from an NT4 box with 128 MB and a Powerbook with 192 MB, 4chan with JS off eats next to nothing and I can handle around 5-10 tabs. Of course I wouldn't recommend that, I'm just saying it's perfectly doable.

With JS on, 512 MB will get you by, I usually like to have 1 GB though, my P4 boxes can handle 30+ tabs of 4chan and other primarily textual sites just fine.

With shitty web players? Don't know, I'd trust them about as far as I can throw them, I don't really watch videos enough to have good experience on the subject though.
>>
>>52712527

I've used dell 910's with 512, 1gb, and 2gb. 2gb DDR2 is cheap as hell at this point so there's no real reason to go with less.

Just get a model that's not soldered on (most of them) and swap it out for like $10-$15.

With linux, ublock, ublock origin chan posting works just fine. Just don't try to browse some cuckscript, web 2.0 shitfest like the verge with a stock browser
>>

1gb is enough for shitposting but ram is so cheap that right answer here is 'as much as possible'. With EEEs you want to upgrade storage, as original ssd is abyssmal.

The form factor is dead. Which is a shame, because right now the technology advanced enough for it to be viable.

Like this quadcore Atom SoC has the performance of a C2D laptop using 2-4W of power.

My Fujitsu Lifebook P1630 was pretty good. Had a pretty weak processor (C2D SU9300) and 2GB of RAM but was pretty snappy with an SSD.

It was pretty decent overall with an 8.9" resistive touchscreen at 1280x800, stylus and trackpoint. Battery usually lasted 2-3 hours with the 3-cell and 4-5 with the 6-cell.

ALRIGHT IDIOTS

LISTEN UP

YOU WANT INTEL ATOM X5 HARDWARE

ITS A 2-WATT CPU WITH AMAZING POWER FOR ITS SIZE

VIRTUALLY ALL INTEL ATOM X5 SYSTEMS RUN OFF 5V USB POWER (2A)

THIS MEANS THEY ARE COMPATIBLE WITH ALL THE BATTERY POWER BANKS AND SOLAR CHARGING SYSTEMS DESIGNED FOR MOBILE PHONES AND TABLETS. ANKER MAKES SOME GREAT SHIT

THE INTEL ATOM X5 CAN ALSO FUCKING PLAY GAMES.
TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF ITS POWER, IT CAN RUN SKYRIM AT ABOVE 30FPS WITH MINIMUM SETTINGS. THIS IS AMAZING FOR A 2 WATT CPU. MANY MODERN GAMES ARE PLAYABLE AND ALL THE OLDER GAMES ARE FULLY PLAYABLE.

THE ATOM X5 CHERRY TRAIL COMES WITH INTEL HD GRAPHICS
AND THE ENTIRE ARCHITECTURE IS 14nm BROADWELL

SO FAR I AM WAITING FOR A CHINA 2in1 TABLET TO BE DELIVERED IN THE MAIL. THE MODEL IS CHUWEI Hi10

ITS A SHAME BRAND NAME COMPANIES DONT MAKE THESE
YOUR ONLY MAINSTREAM OPTIONS ARE ASUS AND TOSHIBA AND THEY ARE OVERPRICED SHIT (ESPECIALLY THE ASUS)

THIS IS ALL BECAUSE MICROSOFT CONTROLS THE HARDWARE INDUSTRY AND THEY WANT THE CHERRY TRAIL ATOM TO BE SOME EXCLUSIVE SHIT TO THE SURFACE
THERE IS NO OTHER REASON WHY THE INTEL X5 ATOM IS NOWHERE ELSE ON THE MARKET

ITS AN AMAZING PROCESSOR

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called “Linux”, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called “Linux” distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

Got Puppy linux on it and it still runs like shit, probably because Firefox was trying to use about 500 MB of RAM and the laptop only has 256 MB. Had minimal page file usage on Windows XP though (less than 60 MB).

i shitpost with a slatebook x2 and clover. pretty small almost netbook size till has extra usb and hdmi port...trackpad and touchscreen around 200 on ebay right now. 1080p in case anyone gives a shit.

storage is shit unless you slap a micro sd and standard sd in that bitch. but that shits cheap.

Can you install Android apps from Google Play on Fire OS?
>>
>>52725906
Two gigs of ram plus non ssd version swapped with real ssd makes them fast enough for windows 7 and many, many open tabs in any browser of choice. Applies to other netbooks from that time based on intel platform. As a plus, I think Acer came with ridicusly long battery run times, somewhere around eleven hours? They are still awesome devices.

Yeah, basically every highschool gave them away to students, it was some gov plan. I think they still do.
They were basically the same as >>52696416

Jesus Christ.

You guys are all up your own asses with your ridiculous legacy mini-PCs, and nobody thinks to get a god damn iPad with a keyboard. It's the easiest to find, it's the best supported, and it's got good battery life so you can shitpost all day.

You fags astound me sometimes.

Asus C201 with libreboot, TL-WN722N and debian8+gnu-libre+xfce is *very* comfy.

Nice and light, gets slightly warm, no-where near enough to roast your nuts, and has 8 to 10 hours on battery.

Except the iPad will cost a few times as much and your portable keyboard options will be limited to shitty keyboard cases that isn't suitable for use on anything that isn't a table.

>>52714720
Have one of these and I'm wondering if anyone knows of any good keyboards in a form factor that would match it.

>keyboard cases suck shit; have separate batteries, charger cables and you can't use them in your lap
>fuckhuge form factor that's no better than just using an X200 in the first place
>piece of shit toy mobile operating systems
>shit battery life if you actually use your device

Did it this way for a full year, even running a full desktop operating system on them via RDPing into a Windows server was lackluster and a shitty replacement for an actual subnotebook/UMPC, plus tablets in general are for gigantic faggots. Not that you'd expect the average /g/ consumertard to actually know the shit they're sperging on about. It's new and invented by Apple, so it must be great, right???

the keyboard sucks compared to any thinkpad but the battery life is incredible and it just werks

anything lower than X5 is fucking garbage

If you don't, you're an idiot. Even if you dislike it, you could resell it for 3x the amount.

X60 and Xperia play. Hopefully the Pocket C.H.I.P. will be able to replace the X60 when it shows up.

If you use CFW you can use a homebrew browser that isn't total shit.
>>52700620
Yes, but it only supports WPA-TKIP, not AES, and only 802.11b.
>>52730173
Honestly I've never tried browsing on it for too long, I have the extended battery door with the original psp battery so that extends the usage time also.
>>52738062
I have the 1001, but I use this one more because it fits my hands better.

The X60 is cute as shit. Picked it up a while back for $40 bucks, Havent regretted it for a second. And the Pocket C.H.I.P. just looks like a nice machine to have, couldn't help but buy it. Way better than spending $200 on a legacy palmtop.

>>52747484
I'll have to start looking around for a battery then, thanks anon.

X60 what? Is that a ThinkPad model?

http://boards.dingoonity.org/gpd-devices/preliminary-concept-design-of-windows-10-handheld-device/

Some Chinese group is making a Windows 10 gaming handheld. It will probably be an amazing portable PC.
>>
>>52747745

yeah man,
im getting tired of shilling the intel atom X series, i sound like a broken record

maybe is /g/ wasnt full of chinese nigger anime shills with bullshit generic threads with shitty retarded anime all over it, then you idiots would actually know this shit

atom X5 is some exclusive shit that was never really adopted by the mainstream comps, because the surface3 uses that shit and basically microsoft controlls the market.

you dont need a retarded handheld gimmick for gaming though.
you can just buy an 8inch tablet like a normal person if size really matters and buy the keyboard to slap it on. because nobody seriously games in public with a handheld, thats just fucking dumb.

the atom X plays all the good PC games, tons of shit. its not just for emulating shitty nostalgic sony ps1 crap
>>
>>52736600
Throw jlime on that biatch!

sony's products are pretty nice, they're just expensive when they're new and the innovative qualities don't always justify the extra overhead for everyone
>>
>>52692456
>Australian detected
>>
>>52747850

correction -
i mentioned the X5 being exclusive shit
i meant to say just the atomX

because the surface uses the atom X7, not the X5
but they are all the same family
>>
>>52709231
>Surface Pro 2 with the extended battery keyboard
Jest be aware that the SP2 with the battery cover is fucking heavy. It's also thick. I have one and I don't like carrying it around, I'm probably going to grab a SP3 or 4 and use that instead.
>>
>>52722864
Well that's awesome. :D What is that?
>>
>>52747687
Yes, it's a thinkpad model. The X60 was released in 2006, it's got a 12.1" display, 4:3 aspect ratio, yadda yadda. It's a decent machine for carrying around and shit posting. Gets a little toasty if you stream video though.
>>
>>52748517
It's a word processor. It's not really a "laptop", in that it doesn't run any applications beyond what it comes with, but it is pretty cool.
>>
>>52747745
this looks like a toy pyra (which looks like a toy umid mbook (which looks like a toy nec mobile pro)). But I want one because muh x86. Just hope they select a wifi chip supported by loonix.

thinkpad x is perfect. I would like a UMPC too but they're kind of dead. at this point if you buy one you're overpaying for old specs and the novelty. looking forwards to x260 and like 15 hours battery life
