Most people use their laptops like this and it leads to upper neck pain. That shit can be permanent. Get a desktop monitor thats level with your eyes.
>>
>>51587173
I still get that with monitors because shit setup.
>>
>>51587181
Raise your monitor with books then
>>
>using a laptop in your lap for a long period of time

Lol no.
>>
wtf lol sit Indian style. Best way to use a laptop. But yeah, when I'm out and about I like tablets for general web browsing and what not
>>
Don't forget laptops on laps heat up your balls which can lead to infertility.

The solution at this point would probably be to just move or alternatively kill myself

Pic related is how I use laptops.
>>
I sold my desktop last year and bought a nice 17" notebook to replace my shitty old laptop.

I have it sat up on my desk with a regular keyboard and mouse most of the time but can pick it up and take it with me when travelling which I do fairly often.

Less cables and noise is one nice thing, takes up far less space and I can hdmi out to my tv if I want to watch movies and shit.
>>
>>51590269
>having pieces of wood and a saw lying about
r u a lumberjack?
>>
>>51590227
the 13" may be small but its a high resolution screen? I used to have a 17" laptop and now that seems gargantuan compared to my new 13", but I still use it for everything from movies to coding projects.
>>
>>51589500
Nigger, I use laptops on my lap every fucking day and I STILL got my gf pregnant. Thank god abortions are legal here despite the Republicans best efforts to restrict access to abortion clinics.
>>
>>51587152
This is me literally right now, on my bed bending right over to look at it.
I don't give a shit, i spend enough time sitting straight up with my head back to offset it.
>>
>>51590283
This. If you have a bit of cash lying around you can get a resonably fast laptop. Sure, it won't compete with the latest desktops, but do you really need to? The convienience and mobility is better to have anyway in my opinion.

I can play modern games on medium settings with my laptop, then when I go travelling I just throw it in my bag and away I go. Can even use it on the train or plane.

Compare that to moving around a massive and heavy desktop case and I wot m8. I think for a lot of people it's this irrational desire to just have the fastest of the fastest, even though there really is very little improvement in the experience at the end of the day (aside from some highly specilised tasks which many people don't ever do)

Get a laptop and external mouse and maybe keyboard too. Plug into a monitor and there you go. Best of both worlds

recent research says that it may never go back to full fertility

Just look down instead of tilting your neck, stupid.
>>
>>51590387
Or rather than being a retard, you could buy a cheap laptop with a long battery life and proper desktop, giving the ACTUAL best of both worlds.

>>51590387
Speaking of which, what to do with desktops that you don't really want that are a few years old? I'm talking like sandy bridge era. It still goes pretty well and can run modern stuff. Just that... it's a desktop.

Do people even want that kind of computer if you try to sell it? Sell the parts? I don't know kek.
Could probably get a bit of money for the case, power supply and maybe gpu (6950). Don't know about the rest though
>>
>>51587173
How permanent? Unable to treat with excersise permanent?
>>
>>51590416
I don't think it is the best of both worlds. Then you have all your stuff split between multiple hard drives, have to download shit twice etc. Depends on person to person I suppose. If you travel around a lot it'd be worth spending that extra for a high-end laptop. If you only ever use a computer in your house then desktop would be fine. It's still massive & cumbersome
>>
>>51590445
Or chiropractic treatment for that matter

>I think for a lot of people it's this irrational desire to just have the fastest of the fastest

I fell for the fast of the fastest meme.
My last desktop build was an FX6300 and I never really did shit with it. Now I use an i3-4030u @ 1.9Ghz smooth as silk for my usage and that includes VM work cross compiling some shit for windows.

The only bottleneck is my HDD. I haven't gone for the SSD meme yet but I'm worried since I download videos to watch in my free time when I may not have internet connection and it's about 1GB worth a day. That's a lot of writing going on over time and I don't want to kill the thing even though people say the outlive spinnin diskz.
>>
>>51590461
Or you use syncing and transfer shit you downloaded either through your network or the simpler method of a USB3 portable hard drive.

I to was a fastest of the fastest memer. I eventually got a laptop. Don't know if I'd get an i3 but good to hear that it works well for you, and that's all that really matters anyway.

I did recently get my first memeSSD too.
I wouldn't worry about killing it... It will last for years, and by that point they will be cheaper/better anyway and you can just get a new one
>>
>>51590476
Why bother when you can just have it all on a laptop though?
What does the desktop experience bring to the table that a laptop can't?
>>
>>51590512
Nothing! :)

An average of double the performance for half the cost, with less noise.
>>
>>51590638
We are in an age of performance abundance, in terms of most people's regular day-to-day usage is concerned. Why do you need a faster cpu when the slower one does everything you want it to already?
>>
>>51590696
Because a slower CPU does not do everything i want it to, not to mention GPU.

What's wrong with using a laptop as main computer?
Excuse shitty GIMP skills.
Yes, my ass does get numb.
>>
>>51590772
What do you want to do?

>>51590787
I say absolutely nothing is wrong with it, assuming you don't need to do any ultra-heavy computation, which most people don't.

Oh, That's a second mattress.
Actually I've put two thin foam mattresses and a foam pillow, but still my ass get numb. I need to lose weight.

Why dont you sit in a chair at a desk?

That's godlike core strength if you can maintain that position for more than a few minutes.

13" MBA has 1440*900, if you mean non-retina. The retina 15" MBP wasn't that heavy, but I use a 15.4" T60p as my baseline for laptop weights. Also, before I had the Air, I ran OS X on a T420 with all components working except the SD reader. It's 14" and 16:9, can run 10.9, 10.10, 10.11 all point-releases so far with very little work to set up.
