>the state of applel
I used to work in one of those phone repair places in the malls.
We had a cardboard box filled to the brim with dead iphone batteries, I was just waiting for the day it caught fire
first time posting in /g/, so if i sound like a newfag then there you go.
I have this older latop, lenovo g570, and since i'm going to college soon I need a laptop to bring with me, so I figured why not this one. it currently runs an older version of linux. my question is, if I replaced the hard drive with a small, cheap ssd, would this thing run like a chromebook? it's currently got 4 gigs of dr3 ram, and oddly enough an actual cpu socket, so I can upgrade that if I need to as well.
I just need to to be as fast as it can be for taking notes and browsing inter net, that kind of stuff. What would be a good ssd for me to get sub ~$60
make sure you check what your specific model has, cnet reviews a review model but you may have a different configuration
download speccy, read specs
anyway, processor upgrades for sandy bridge pga
Core i7-2640M is your best option, its still 35w like your i5 so it wont get any hotter or anything
Core i7-2860QM is your highest possible reasonable upgrade, its a 45w quadcore so it will give great performance but its going to be toasty
Core i7-2960XM is 55w and will be too much for your laptops cooler unless youre running it at 100% speed 24/7
C was designed in the 1960s, when colonialism was still rampant, and that is reflected in the language design. C ignores array bounds just as the imperial powers ignored the boundaries of tribal societies. Rust can free us from syntactic oppression, and provides "safe spaces" for everyone's data regardless of their culture or previous gender.

Exactly, this is why it's garbage and shouldn't even be considered.
What's your point?
What's a good distro to use for i3 DE?
Thoughts on my new thinkpad.....
Post /g/ memes here
So I have understood from our community that our content is troubling some of you.
Please do ask me anything /g/
Please help. All I have is a number...
What's the oldest component you currently have in your current PC build?
Is there any technology that can make me taller? OR at least look taller?
>its news when there is a vulnerability for linux
You realize this is a good thing right? There are so many dozens of gaping holes in windows security that nobody even reports on it anymore.
it doesn't get comfier than this
How accurate is this meme? Is it really that much of a joke? I know people who have said it, is it even possible?
All of what I am about to post will seem like a lie but I can assure you it is not.
>Have h100i v2
>it makes a lot of noise and I fear it will leak
>hear hard drive dying as well
>order a new cpu cooler and new ssd and hdd
This is when the fun starts
>Take gpu out of the pc
>unscrew all of the bolts holding the h100i in place
>last bolt falls away and its stuck in place
>try and wiggle it around
Its not happening
>have to pull quite hard
>I cant see the cpu
>took in horror as I see the cpu stuck to the fucking h100i
pic coming as well
>look at the cpu with all of these bent bins and think about ending it
>instead I decide to unbend the pins
>so I get this thing I bought a while back
see pic related
>I go pin by pin and realign all of the bent ones
>Line up the golden corners
>wont sit right
>push it a little and theres a click and it sits perfectly
>I spend ages cutting myself on the new heatsink and install everything else except the new ssd and hard drive because I want to make sure my pc still works.
>I press the power button and it works
>I am so happy I check some boards on 4 chan and everything seems okay
>I then reboot
>it wont post
>the ez debug on my motherboard is saying there is a problem with the gpu
>unplug the gpu and take it out its pcie lane
>theres some thermal paste on it connector I scrape that off even though its a tiny smidge but that does nothing
>must be something else
>check everything else until I come to the realisation it must be the cpu that is having problems
>I take the cpu out and see thermal paste in the holes the pins go into and on the pins themselves
>I get some toilet paper and clear out the socket and use the end of a flat head to clean the pins

Let's settle this once and for all.
In the year 2017 (2018 soon, don't forget that, tick tock), is the T420 a dinosaur laptop?
