Why do macfags like these flat abominations?
Macfags don't have opinions of their own. They are provided opinions by their local Apple store. They like them because it's what's infront of them, not because of any empirical or fuck even subjective qualities. This is what Apple gives them so they like it. The rabbit hole goes no deeper than the fucking key travel on those things.
If you want help:
>Assemble your parts list
>State the budget for your build (and country if not the USA)
>List games/software you use often, as well as your monitor resolution + refresh rate
>Clarify your goal for build improvements: lower price or improved specs?
How to assemble a PC, select components & more (kind of outdated)
No i5 unless discounted
>G4560/G4600 - Budget builds (<$500)
>R5 1400 - Cheapest quad core you can get (Ryzen 3 soon)
>R5 1500x - Good but up to 1600 if you can
>R5 1600 - Best value for higher fps gaming / mixed usage; 1600x if you want higher stock clocks
>i7 7700k - Only for 144hz
>R7/Used Xeon/Threadripper - Compute/Multitask/VM/mixed use; Not for just gaming
Coin miners have driven price up and stock down, waiting to buy a GPU might be wiser
>Integrated CPU Graphics - Desktop stuff and very light games
>GTX 1050(Ti) - Lower end budget cards, drop settings on newer games, RX560 beaten by both
>RX570 - [email protected]~hz maxed, running most maxed older games at 100~Hz
>RX580 and GTX1060 6GB - [email protected] maxed, [email protected] at lower settings; RX580 better in newer games
>GTX 1070 - [email protected] /[email protected] at high
>GTX 1080 - [email protected] / [email protected] maxed, [email protected] in a few games; Probably the highest end card you need for 1080p/1440p
>GTX 1080Ti - [email protected] and [email protected] maxed/high in many games
>Check your Mobo QVL before buying any RAM
>Ryzen CPUs benefits a lot from high speed RAM
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.
is that assface the ATI mascot or something?
AMD really has gotten better at everything over the years, even waifus.

Anyone try this out with xp?
Let's be real, an home server/NAS will most likely not survive something like an earthquake, a fire, a flood, people breaking into your house, etc., so if you truly care about some piece of data the most practical solution is to use a cloud service, possibly one that has been around for some years without major problems.
What interests me is how to prepare your data for (((the cloud))).
Using compressed archives is convenient because it may reduce the size of the upload and it lets you divide your data in smaller chunks, making it easier to upload/dowload, especially if you are using an unstable connection or a web client. Though I have read many times people saying that the encryption of 7z, rar, or other formats is "not enough", nobody has ever provided a proof. Is there truth to that?
If you go with archives, what are the optimal formats and compression parameters? Does it make sense to add redundancy in the compression?
Other often mentioned options are VeraCrypt volumes or GPG, but they don't seem as practical.
A third option would be to use some tool that automatically encrypts the files before they get synchronized (EncFS, CryptSync, Boxcryptor...), anybody ever used them? Are they reliable?
I need a really cheap tablet just to play videos as my phone screen is too small to enjoy when I lay it on the floor and watch porn while toying my boipussy doggystyle. What would /g/ recommend?

I'm due for an upgrade
What's the best gaming notebook(I know) for under $1000? Basically best performance the money can get. I'd get a desktop but I move around a lot so it's inconvenient for me.

it's ugly but for the price you cant beat it

Can't really do that because it's open source, someone would do it for them. Generally I support the idea though. Maybe just make it harder by not supporting windows as much as possible.
