Anyone ready for this sexy beast! Asus zenbook 550 bitches. Yeah a 1050ti with 12 hours battery life!!! Will it be the ultimate laptop?
>Falling for the iX Core meme
OP, that shit looks like it'll heat like a motherfucker and throttle hard.
You can get high battery life when your CPU is stuck at 0.8 GHz :<)
How do we stop them ? In literally every thread about smartphones an autistic basement dweller completely out of reality shows up and ruin everything spouting buzzwords like
>muh overpriced !!!!
>muh pajeet custom roms
When will you put in your fucking tiny brain that the OS is ready to go without any interference from the end-user.
There is also the malware problem. Call me when you'll find viruses and adwares in the Apple play store.
Android is NOT technology. Google collects and sells your data. Android is filled with security breachs. Can the same be said with Apple ? So get out shills
>android is not technology
by that logic, apple isn't technology either
Have you heard of forth anon? It's like this micro lisp that only hackers can use. It's pretty neat!
With all this BSD talk happening on /g/ the past few days, I'm curious, what companies use *BSD? I see this on the openbsd donations page, but no one ever seems to mention they use *BSD.
Is it really a viable alternative to linux?
hardware support lags by at least a year on average, less eyeballs means less secure in reality regardless of theoretical advantages like as touted in openbsd
that said, im still a mac/bsdfag and think the future is pretty bright, linux has a lot of problems in the long term im not sure it will be able to deal with

ALWAYS LOOK AT PRODUCT REVIEWS!
Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor.
The Ryzen lineup comes with surprisingly good stock coolers. consider using them over any <$30 cooler.
Stupid Questions Thread
I am in the same boat, python keeps kicking my ass and somehow during lessons things appear with no reason or explanation. My plan is to focus on creating something that I can find fun, so I am going into pygame. Plus I need to step back from codefights cause I already broke enough things yesterday.
Doc said I should not spend more than 2 hours on tech. Send some facts my way that prove this is bs
These are hard to find now in use-able condition.

Hi guys. I need to replace my t420's battery. Can somebody please recommend good sellers/chink batteries on ebay/aliexpress/etc. ? I am afraid that I'll end up with some soykaf-tier one if I'll pick battery on my own.

I'm not hyped
Help a brainlet out here.
How did this guy create a programming language out of nowhere that's still being widely used today? What tools did he use? How did he make the computer understand all those letters and not ones and zeroes?
