Hey, so I'm gonna pick up an Elitebook 2170p and I had two questions if anybody has ever had one
>How good is the battery life? (6 cell version)
>Will I notice a difference between the i5 3427u and the i7 3667u?

Why do mods, especially Troid (he is yournamehere on IRC), encourage threads, especially generals, that is not related to technology or /g/'s board culture to be spammed day and night here?
Please explain to me how garbage shit like
>Ny*aa Pantsu shill thread, a general dedicated to advertising a tracker website that nobody ever uses
>Chink merchandises general
mods are so lazy they cant even put a filter on obvious bait words like "jew", "poo", etc. they cant force a sticky for big event that will draw hundreds of shitty bait threads like the iphone release or the vega.
dont expect anything and just use your own filters.
>Why do mods, especially Troid (he is yournamehere on IRC), encourage threads
Explain how they are encouraging the threads. Allowing their existence isn't the same as encouraging them, it's just not active discouragement.
>to be spammed day and night here?
Explain how the examples you mentioned get "spammed day and night" on /g/ when they typically have a single active thread at a time. Desktop threads sometimes get spammed but more often than not those are deleted. There aren't people "spamming" private tracker threads.
It amazes me what people choose to complain about. Open the catalog view and look at the 35+ obvious shitposting iphone troll threads or pepe image threads, yet a single threads that are absurdly easy to filter and auto ignore are whined about.
I hate Chink companies so much. I fell for the EVGA meme because of their 10 year warranty and the power cables to my hard drives is literally too big for a full tower's backplate. I had to bend the cable to make it fit in the back for the back plate and it almost broke my hard drive's power connector.
My last PSU (Corsair) had normal, flexible and decent power cables to SATA but you can't use a different brand's cables on a different PSU.

Meanwhile there's still R7 2700U with Vega 11 iGPU out there.

Is Lenovo going to fuck this up?
I just got it working now so this isn't tech support. So my computer was acting funny when I was doing some gaming earlier, I figure "ehh let's just reboot", and while I was rebooting I wanted to go into BIOS for a second.
So I tried that a few times, and it didn't work. Eventually, after like 5 resets, it DID work. But then Windows wouldn't boot. Uh oh.
So I grab my [spoiler]Windows 10[/spoiler] recovery disk. After trying automatic repair, it locks up on me. Every time I try to do something with it it tells me that there's no BCD and I need install/repair media. Hmm. Grab a Linux distro live CD. That works, but when I double back to actually wipe my hard drive, my hard drive is gone from the device list...
At this point I was frustrated as hell. Grabbed the flashlight and re-affirmed every connection between my motherboard, PSU and hard drive.
And then it suddenly started to work. Does anyone have any idea what happened here? I went from having entire USBs not recognized along with my hard drive to having no issues. I don't want my PC to shit out on me like this when I have a deadline to meet.
>Can get to BIOS
>restart with windows 10 usb stick
>Install 64 bit windows
>Fails on install with 0xc000021a
Tried restarting in safe mode, resetting bios, etc.
I think the usb stick with windows is fucked. Any recommendations on how to fix/asses?
