First time using Linux as an installed OS on hardware instead of a demo. Ubuntu 17.something on an old Samsung netbook I had lying around. Not sure if its this shitty HDD or the fact its got an Intel Shatom CPU but this shit is really slow. I'll probably try out Lubuntu on this next. After many, many years I'm finally trying Linux, I feel there's a lot more to it than the things I've seen in the first few hours on this non-ideal machine. I think a lot of people get put off too quick then never go back to it. I'll maybe try a flavor of Linux on one of my ThinkPads soon. It'll take a lot of time though because I won't be able to pull away once I get started.

Share stories of your first ever times using LInux.

My first time using Linux was a knoppix live CD that I used in class for a system recovery lab. This was back in 2006. It didn't really click then, but I tried out a couple distros last year, and made the full time switch to Linux around March.

I'll probably be doing something similar. I just need to build up experience in Linux because Windows is obviously going to shit and I should ween myself off Windows 7, so I better get used to Linux sooner or later. Learn how to make it mine and mold it how I want. Does anyone know if Lenovo's utilities and shit are available on Linux and if they work as well as they do on Windows 7?

C2D is still relevant if you are in it for business, ie no games or high def video. Just get a chink SSD.

There are no Thinkpads that are pieces of shit. Even the worst ones are still a cut above the true pieces of shit you'd find in wal-mart electronics aisle.

>I picked one up for £20

Well you got pretty lucky. Put a $20 SSD in there and shitpost away.

How to assemble a PC, select components & more (outdated)
https://wiki.installgentoo.com/index.php?title=Build_a_PC

CPUs:
No i5 unless discounted
>A10 9700 - poverty-tier builds (no dGPU)
>R3 1200 - Budget builds (<$500)
>R3 1300x - Good stop-gap between the 1500x and the 1200, only get a 1400 if you absolutely need multithreading
>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
>R7/Used Xeon/Threadripper - Compute/Multitask/VM/mixed use; Not for just gaming

GPUs:
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 or Vega 56 - [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
>Good fucking luck even getting a VEGA right now

RAM:
>Check your Mobo QVL before buying any RAM
>Ryzen CPUs benefits a lot from high speed RAM

General:
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

Art students and technology don't mix

This isn't something you need to draw. Just switch over to inkscape, it works fine with a mouse and has the huge bonus of being able to scale your art to any resolution.

However if you want to pursue drawing professionally then I would get a wacom tablet.

>>62207616
Look into the Lenovo Yoga book. It has a Wacom digitizer you can even draw on top of it using real paper and it will digitize whatever you are drawing.
