I thought /g/ would support and promote this. Are you afraid that you'll be a liberal and get disapproval from your chinese cartoon forums full of high school dropouts?
Hi guys, since in /tpg/ recommendations are often about suggesting cheap laptops that value the build quality more than power, which is great in most cases but I guess many of you still need power at a cheap price, I thought I could make a slightly different thread.
Thinkpads/Elitebooks/Latitude etc... Are fine for general programming, note taking in uni and all of that.
But if you need a graphics card or a better CPU cause you want to do some modeling or game development, but you're poor as fuck, I guess you can trade off some of those laptops' great build quality and take a look at these:
At least here in Germany, this is the best price/power deal I've found. HP generally is the best in this lower tier with it's cheap laptops. For those who don't know the AMD A12-9700p, it's CPU is almost an i5, and it's GPU is on the range of a GTX 860m or something like that, basically an entry level to actually manage some graphics power on your laptop.
Feel free to suggest other cheap laptops with decent specs!
I want to buy a new laptop. Problem is all comes with windows 10 and even though I want to switch to windows 7, there are no drivers for windows 7 for new laptops.
don't buy a new laptop pretty simple as most windows 7 OS's are not supported on kabylake or Zen based CPU's
Ether accept used or accept the botnet windows 10.
For better saftey its better to go windows 10 IMO
How do I erase my internet presence? I need to disappear for a bit, and don't want to leave any traces.
is there anything more fun to program than your own game engine?
programming your own DAW
programming your own 2D CAD
programming your own programming language
programming your own paint software
programming your own GIS
programming your own in-house software that drives other devs mad
>Any benchmarks tested in DX11 are apparently null
>IN DX12 IT WILL BE BETTER THAN A 1080TI
>you have to use this very specific ayysync DX12 benchmark otherwise you're a greedy nvidia jew
>Already wait for Navi
Seriously? Can AMADs just accept popular benchmarks? It's always gotta be catered specifically or it's false. Watch Day 1 benchmarks be cast to the side and wait for drivers.
that would be the case if drivers where made and tested the same way as Nvidia but lets be real AMD is not even half the size of the big Nvidia corp.
Its really down to drivers the hard ware is over engineered but the gaming profromace and real world benchmarking isn;t there because the driver is not using the GPU correctly
If a GOU is sitiing 100% load in agame or Professional app
then its driver is using 100% of the gpu which is good.
But look at the first launch of the 480 that useage was very bad and it shows in FPS numbers.
that is bad driver utilisation.
ITs happening with Vega because its still using the old and outdated Modded FuryX driver which doesn't use all the functions of the GPU
this is why utillizeations take alot of time On AMD
If they where smart thye would of hired more people and not less.
anytime a bissiness cutts back its less money and more debts this is why job cutts only work in the short term and not the long term.
Ex R9 380 and Current GTX 1070 owner.
I watched both Adored TV and PC perspective and both made some sence on the matter of AMD.
the driver frount needs to be taken more seriously than it is right now
I mean the 300 series is still having the down clock issue in fallout 4 where in places with less gpu power is needed the gpu would down clock but it would do it so low that it would crash the fallout game making it almost unplayable with out the program "ClockBlocker" that stops then downclock in game.
I hear the 400 and 500 series is uneffected by this bug but it lets amd's credibly down.
No this is real talk.
should i be worried about the hyperthreading bug in skylake/kabylake processors?
i tried to update my bios but the latest version is dated march, i`m using the h110-mk motherboard and an i3-6100
mind you i only use my pc for gaming and shitposting
How do I stop wanting to buy a new monitor? I have LG Flatron W2243T right now.
Please list all the websites you can think of that shouldn't be given your hard earned tendie tokens/ goodboy points.
My suggestion is namecheap.
1. To transfer a domain costs as much as they they charge per year, which is already inflated.
2. Domains not pointed at an IP are pointed to an sleazy ad network.
3. 'Coupons' for 2 cents off a domain renewal.
4. Renewal costs for domains change seemingly at random.

jesus christ just kill me now I don't want to deal with that shit and now I'm certain I will have to
it's like a fucking grown ass baby wanting to touch a hot stove despite you telling them not to because it will burn them
old people + technology.. what a nightmare
They gotta learn the hard way. I remember when I was a kid and got virused up from limewire, never backed up etc
>This cool basketball american will make old thinkpads cooler than macbooks and turn 2017 into the year of the linux desktop
How does that make you feel?
Will you still use your old Thinkpads with GNU/Linux when all the normies start using it? Or will you switch to windows and say hurr durr i'm such a geek i can use windows without getting viruses lol
Daily reminder that KDE is the pinnacle of desktop PC environments, and that using any ricing distribution like Arch or Gentoo means that you lack creativity and replace interesting work with never-ending useless configuration.
Daily reminder KDE is not a distro and can be installed on any "ricing distribution" and there is nothing wrong with Ubuntu or its flavors

Has anyone else heard of this phone before?
What are peoples thoughts on it and does anyone know where I can buy one online?
I figure technology board most fits this question.
I've been looking into this more and more because i'll be moving to a super crowded city where my apartment will be a 20 minute walk from where I live but it's a very hot environment so i'd like to avoid walking that long or pedaling a bike in 34+ heat.
I'm not really fond of the $1500 price tag of the boosted board; seems really pricey considering it's not water proof.
Anyone here own something like this or a product idea I could look into? Thanks.
If it's a 20 minute walk, it'll be a 10 minute bike ride if you pedal slowly, which could keep you from getting too sweaty. I live in Texas and the only reason that I am considering an e-bike is because I have a 20 mile commute. Otherwise, you'll probably enjoy the e-bike to get around to other places in your city and to haul shopping home.
Yeah doing more research on it the bike seemed more efficient even if the cost is a bit higher up front.
While i'm inclined to save that money honestly speaking anything to reduce commute times is worth it for me.
34 today with 80% humidity is a no go for my work wear. Luckily it's usually not quite that humid but i'd like to avoid it.
Would a 144hz screen for a phone be a meme?
and when are companies going to start releasing them?
