>Macbooks are overpriced
>Ok, show me a similarly priced laptop with the same specs or better. Reminder that $1300 rMBPs are light, have a 2560x1600 retina display, the best keyboards and trackpads in existence, 8GB RAM, outstanding battery life, NVMe SSDs, and the best build quality and support in the business
Can we finally put an end to this meme?

Is Waterfox really better than FF /g/?
INSTALL CALCULATE LINUX
>100% compatible with Gentoo repo so you can always compile your kernel instead of downloading binary
literally Gentoo - autism, why don't you use it, then?
>50% on average
I only have firefox open with a shitload of tabs. Is my computer a zombie for the botnet or are browser just that bloated at this point.

"Hey anon did you get that pdf I sent you? Make your annotations and copy everyone on it."
"Can you send it in plaintext? I'm not near a computer and my phone doesn't work like that, command line only"
Yeah, great idea man. Great idea.
Hi anon, my laptop with AMD A12 just made hist last breath, and I'm dead broke.
I can get a E8500+4Gb RAM configuration for like $80, will it be enough for web?
After latest updates my Windows 7 perfomance went to shit
Is this a Jewi-jewi tactic to push me into the W10 direction?
Do the upgrade. WIndows 10 has more security and support than any OS right now.
THANK YOU BASED AIRCONDITIONER COMPANIES
AYYMAD IS FINISHED AND BANKRUPT
I have photoshop downloaded, but have no desire to install it.
anyone knows the feeling GIMP is literally better at this point simply because it's not bloated as hell?
Select a circle using the ellipse selection tool. Shift constrains it to a circle selection.
Select - Border
Swipe a brush across it.
What's so difficult about this?
Five years ago, every machine in my household was running Windows, today, none of them are. When I was in HS, I installed Linux and have been using it since. Then my mom discovered an ipad and she stopped using PCs altogether. My brothers and sisters use either Linux or Macs. My father was the last holdout and he kept on using his Dell Latitude and wouldn't get rid of it. After that WannaCry bullshit and the second wave of ransomware shit, he decided to ditch Windows too. He told me that today he got a new laptop.
Oh, it feels so damn great now because I won't have to do any Winshit tech support anymore when I'm back from university!
What about your household /g/? Have you ditched Windows yet? What are you doing to move your family away from that cancerous OS?
Anon. Make a blog. Update it with every tech support issue you've had in your home. It'd both be a good resource and some anecdotal evidence for others to do the same.
It'll probably be empty. So it's not much work either.
That's even worse. Kill yourself for being a failure of a son.

FYI: Stallman claims that image is of him having sex with a bird. He said he didn't know until after when someone told him that it's a mating behavior of the bird. He says he enjoyed the feel of it's incredibly soft feathers against his skin.
If you want help:

>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?

>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

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

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.
Trying to build a fairly inexpensive rig that can play some of my favorite older games. Not looking to run anything at 8k 6000fps, just wanna be able to play like borderlands and civilization at a pretty good resolution. I’d also like it to be fairly small, I’ve seen some of these cases at Fry’s that are the size of a nightstand and I really don’t need that either. I don’t know a lot about this stuff please halp me /g/
Is there any reason why my location isn't showing??
Is this lady insane?
