why do you keep posting pics of this uggo? she's disgusting.
What, if anything is wrong with the current Lenovo E series? I want to get the one with the 950m in it. I have the e550 version from a few years ago and it was fine.
Is there any reason to stay away from the current models? It would be a laptop to use at work. The current one is a bit old. I want the 950m for some light gaming during downtime
We are starting a hub for anons interested in VR. All text is a WIP.
>What is VR? Why should I care?
Virtual reality seeks to fool your perceptual systems into believing that you're in a different world. It's been a sci-fi meme for decades that once was even attempted and failed, but consumer technology has advanced to the point where it's now possible.

This thread isn't for you. Go shitpost somewhere else. If you're genuinely curious about VR, keep reading to learn more, and post if you have questions.
>I'm not sure I believe the hype.
The only way to truly understand VR is to experience it. If you're skeptical, try a live demo and make up your own mind. Or keep reading for a comprehensive intro.

why aren't you using gnome?
Because I don't use linux on a desktop, only a laptop and using a dock like that to launch programs is horrible because touchpads that aren't on macbooks suck.
So I use xfce with a launcher program that lets me hit a keybind and type in letters until the program pops up then hit enter to launch.
I would use gnome on a desktop.
Cute maki pape

You know pretty much every modern DE including gnome does the exact same thing right?

how FUCKING bad are these intel cpus? what in the FUCK is this trash? don't tell me they still don't solder those things in 2017?
first of all, there are people who manage to do that.
second of all, over 90% of streamers are intel faggots. that is why 1080 60fps is so rare there. only the top end i7 owners who know how to utilized their settings can stream at that level.
They don't solder them. He's playing at 1080p but streaming at 720p60 because Twitch is still garbage with bitrates and a quad core Intel can't push 1080p60 with software encdoing on it's own.
Do you people even like technology at all?
Why you haven't installed Elementary OS yet?
When they transferred my data from my opd iphone to my new one, only SOME of it got transferred. And now that im trying to get into my old fone to send the rest of my data to my new phone, it says, "iphone disabled" and apparrently the only way i can unlock it will erase all my data on that phone. Am i within my rights to kill everybody at apple? Because it sure seems like they deserve it. My data is worth more than their lives. So if they think my data can die...

What are you working on, /g/?
This is most retarded developing environment i ever seen.
thing were different when it was new. my little sister got special commendations at her postgrad for using SAP to gather data in her field. I was sad she used SAP but proud she was getting recognition. It'd be cooler if she used Spark
So let's say I want to drop x86 by principle, because every company involved in that closed architecture is basically a big mafia.
Of course there's ARM, but it's not any better. NDAs forcing vendors to not release drivers. So ARM machines (I can only think of the pinebook) are not an option.
There was a new lemote announced, but I never heard of it again.
What architecture could I use? Doesn't have to be enough as a daily driver (although I'm mostly using my Raspberry Pi 3 for everyday stuff, so my performance requests are rather low). I just need a new toy to play around with and I don't have much place for something like an old SparcStation.
PowerPC is funny, but old PowerPC thinkpads are sold >800$ here.
A small SBC would be the best, a laptop would be fine, too. It should be able to boot Linux and show me a console.
