I'd say it looks fairly ugly actually

2016-06-09 12:08:41 UTC

But it works better

2016-06-09 12:09:01 UTC

I like that minimalist kind of thing

2016-06-09 12:09:28 UTC

>23 people
>eternally Comfy and cathy

2016-06-09 12:09:54 UTC

You included two bots in that number

2016-06-09 12:10:33 UTC

true, forgot about those

2016-06-09 12:11:20 UTC

Anyway the main thing about vimperator is that all the usual browsing works without a mouse

2016-06-09 12:11:29 UTC

ah I see, pure shortcuts

2016-06-09 12:11:45 UTC

is that because you don't want to use the trackpoint or trackpad?

2016-06-09 12:12:05 UTC

I'd love a trackpoint this laptop doesn't have one

2016-06-09 12:12:16 UTC

what laptop do you have?

2016-06-09 12:12:20 UTC

asus n550

2016-06-09 12:12:49 UTC

looks like a macbook

2016-06-09 12:13:02 UTC

It was the best bang for buck I could get two years ago

2016-06-09 12:13:04 UTC

but slightly ulgier

2016-06-09 12:13:22 UTC

Pros

Powerful day to day performance
Plays games surprisingly well
Blu-Ray Drive included
Excellent Audio

Cons

Slightly iffy buttons on the touchpad
Battery life could be stronger
No solid state drive

2016-06-09 12:13:37 UTC

my gf is in the market for a laptop, I should go look in thinkpad general

2016-06-09 12:13:41 UTC

her x220 mysteriously died

2016-06-09 12:13:50 UTC

wouldn't charge or turn on anymore

2016-06-09 12:13:54 UTC

Touchpad is definitely the worst touchpad I've used

2016-06-09 12:14:25 UTC

750m gpu isn't too bad either

2016-06-09 12:14:44 UTC

solid mobile gpu

2016-06-09 12:14:50 UTC

It has slower gpu memory but I didn't found it to be an issue

2016-06-09 12:14:59 UTC

The most demanding game I play is dota anyway

2016-06-09 12:15:05 UTC

And that works fine

2016-06-09 12:15:19 UTC

she wants one for Β£180, I said just get another x220

2016-06-09 12:15:23 UTC

but now she's wary from this

2016-06-09 12:15:30 UTC

maybe go for a dell

2016-06-09 12:16:02 UTC

check ebay retards with easily fixable computers that are dirt cheap

2016-06-09 12:16:18 UTC

yeah that's usually the best way

2016-06-09 12:16:26 UTC

"LAPTOP. DOESN'T WORK. NO OFFERS PLEASE"

2016-06-09 12:16:28 UTC

Looks like it doesn't let you postpone the update forever

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/189466684938125312/190438968150458369/unknown.png

2016-06-09 12:16:45 UTC

I've postponed it for two weeks already

2016-06-09 12:16:57 UTC

insider preview?

2016-06-09 12:17:04 UTC

Nah

2016-06-09 12:17:35 UTC

it definitely will just stop letting you postpone

2016-06-09 12:17:39 UTC

your freedoms are already gone

2016-06-09 12:17:40 UTC

It actually can't reboot on its own because I disabled that in group policy

2016-06-09 12:18:02 UTC

It just says "We couldn't reboot your computer" if it comes to that

2016-06-09 12:18:11 UTC

inb4 microsoft come to your house and wrestle you to the ground manually rebooting your laptop

2016-06-09 12:18:16 UTC

lol

DON'T YOU WANT STABILITY AND PERFORMANCE

2016-06-09 12:18:47 UTC

It's not like they're not trying to insert Normiebook into my PC

2016-06-09 12:19:06 UTC

I think you can disable suggested apps

2016-06-09 12:19:09 UTC

I don't see them anyway

2016-06-09 12:19:26 UTC

I did all the windows freedoms stuff while blind drunk so I don't remember what I disabled

2016-06-09 12:19:26 UTC

Oh, I have most of those things disabled

2016-06-09 12:19:38 UTC

That was just something I plucked from /g/

2016-06-09 12:19:48 UTC

But they're going beyond the call of duty to make sure you get their ads

2016-06-09 12:19:49 UTC

based in UK lad

2016-06-09 12:19:51 UTC

200$ mbpr

2016-06-09 12:20:11 UTC

doesn't look too shabby though

2016-06-09 12:20:17 UTC

she wants a new chink phone and a new laptop

2016-06-09 12:20:20 UTC

so budget is tight

2016-06-09 12:20:29 UTC

it has water damage

2016-06-09 12:20:30 UTC

uses a lenovo k3 note right now

2016-06-09 12:20:51 UTC

but the touch screen keeps phantom pressing to the left of the screen

2016-06-09 12:20:56 UTC

we opened it up but can't see the issue

2016-06-09 12:21:09 UTC

so when you're trying to scroll it keeps clicking shit on the left of the touchscreen

2016-06-09 12:21:11 UTC

thanks chinks

2016-06-09 12:21:33 UTC

redmi meme looks superior tho

2016-06-09 12:23:36 UTC

comfy you could get this for your gf

2016-06-09 12:23:50 UTC

>those stickers

2016-06-09 12:23:58 UTC

heat gun and knife

2016-06-09 12:24:19 UTC

that looks like a really easy fix yeah

2016-06-09 12:24:35 UTC

probably a disconnected monitor cable

2016-06-09 12:25:01 UTC

yeah

2016-06-09 12:25:30 UTC

what are the best bang for buck macbook pros working?

2016-06-09 12:25:32 UTC

2012?

2016-06-09 12:26:02 UTC

fuck how are these still Β£700 used, macfags are retarded

2016-06-09 12:26:31 UTC

mac fags are stupid as fuck

2016-06-09 12:27:22 UTC

you'd think the price would drop

2016-06-09 12:27:32 UTC

probably buying for the apple logo alone

2016-06-09 12:27:51 UTC

love when poorfags buy apple looking laptops and stick an apple logo on them

2016-06-09 12:28:09 UTC

tfw a girl I went to school with got caught walking around with ipod earbuds connected to nothing

2016-06-09 12:28:20 UTC

couldn't afford an ipod or iphone

2016-06-09 12:28:24 UTC

>got caught

2016-06-09 12:28:27 UTC

How?

2016-06-09 12:28:55 UTC

someone asked to see her ipod and then tugged at the bottom of the cable when she got shifty

2016-06-09 12:29:01 UTC

came up connected to nothing

2016-06-09 12:29:18 UTC

I wouldn't even know how to react to that

2016-06-09 12:29:20 UTC

was p common in my school tbh

2016-06-09 12:30:00 UTC

Apple products are a rare sight here

2016-06-09 12:30:19 UTC

where's here

2016-06-09 12:30:22 UTC

Croatia

2016-06-09 12:30:55 UTC

it was more the iPod that was huge

2016-06-09 12:31:09 UTC

entry drug for macfags

2016-06-09 12:31:17 UTC

then iPhone became the entry drug

2016-06-09 12:31:39 UTC

mbpr 2013 is pretty good

2016-06-09 12:31:43 UTC

ive used

2016-06-09 12:31:44 UTC

it

2016-06-09 12:31:55 UTC

trackpad is great and battery life isnt too bad

2016-06-09 12:32:20 UTC

i'll take look

2016-06-09 12:32:23 UTC

a

2016-06-09 12:32:48 UTC

Β£375 for one, not bad

2016-06-09 12:33:03 UTC

Selling as switched to gaming PC


If collecting cash please


Comes with box

2016-06-09 12:33:11 UTC

someone saw the light fam

2016-06-09 12:35:16 UTC

they're such gorgeous machines, definitely pussy magnet laptops

2016-06-09 12:35:22 UTC

shame about the price

2016-06-09 12:39:59 UTC

I honestly like Zenbooks more than Macbooks

2016-06-09 12:40:20 UTC

Mostly for the finish on the top

2016-06-09 12:42:24 UTC

for Β£180 would you be able to build a decent mini-itx PC?

2016-06-09 12:42:54 UTC

just for photoshopping, no gaming really

2016-06-09 12:42:57 UTC

Hrm

2016-06-09 12:43:01 UTC

Lemme see

2016-06-09 12:43:34 UTC

I guess you can skimp on the processor bit and just go heavy on the GPU

2016-06-09 12:43:38 UTC

Usually delivers a better result

2016-06-09 12:44:14 UTC

Or just an APU

2016-06-09 12:44:17 UTC

Yeah I don't know if it's worth it at Β£180

2016-06-09 12:44:23 UTC

decent refurb laptops for that

2016-06-09 12:44:51 UTC

I'll look at refurb PCs, can maybe gut one

2016-06-09 12:44:54 UTC

kek

2016-06-09 12:45:13 UTC

Just the CPU + Mobo lands at you at 90 pounds

2016-06-09 12:45:25 UTC

UK prices are high

2016-06-09 12:46:02 UTC

Yeah, 20% tax

2016-06-09 12:46:17 UTC

people fly to USA and buy up tons of cheap tech

2016-06-09 12:46:22 UTC

as much as can fit in a suitcase

2016-06-09 12:46:51 UTC

American prices are deceptive, though

2016-06-09 12:47:05 UTC

The prices we Europeans see are tax-exempted

2016-06-09 12:47:24 UTC

But you usually have to slap another 6% or so to the total

2016-06-09 12:47:54 UTC

Yeah I hate that

2016-06-09 12:47:59 UTC

And then some surtax

2016-06-09 12:48:02 UTC

when you they ring it through and suddenly tax

2016-06-09 12:48:10 UTC

thanks muricans

2016-06-09 12:49:05 UTC

So

2016-06-09 12:49:11 UTC

This is what I got

2016-06-09 12:49:21 UTC

all these dell optiplexs everywhere

2016-06-09 12:49:25 UTC

That's minus the storage

2016-06-09 12:50:05 UTC

And with a veeeeery dubious PSU

2016-06-09 12:50:19 UTC

I can maybe donate my PSU, it's her birthday soon

2016-06-09 12:50:26 UTC

get myself a better one

2016-06-09 12:51:02 UTC

Are there any good 1440p monitors on gb or Ali? I know there are the Korean ones a lot of people buy

2016-06-09 12:51:07 UTC

Maybe one could be less cheap and upgrade that A6 to an AMD A10-7700K, but eh

2016-06-09 12:51:35 UTC

Monitors are kinda too big for Ali and GB, I think

2016-06-09 12:51:39 UTC

You'd have to go to Ebay

2016-06-09 12:51:53 UTC

Yeah Korean is the way to go

2016-06-09 12:51:55 UTC

And Koreans lead the panel manufacturing business anyway

2016-06-09 12:52:20 UTC

I use a QX2710 and have it overclocked to 120hz

2016-06-09 12:52:27 UTC

Works fine enough

2016-06-09 12:52:47 UTC

Though I do sink down to 96 hz, to get that sweetspot between smoothness and image quality

2016-06-09 12:52:55 UTC

Cause the higher you go, the more worse the image quality

2016-06-09 12:53:23 UTC

Okay that was the one I was looking at, which model do you have? I know there's a difference in the led evolution 2s?

2016-06-09 12:53:46 UTC

The multi-input ones do not have very good overclocking capability, I believe

2016-06-09 12:53:53 UTC

My cousin has one and I could only overclock it to 85hz

2016-06-09 12:53:56 UTC

Which is well...

2016-06-09 12:54:05 UTC

Better than 60 hz, still

2016-06-09 12:54:43 UTC

But it's not a dealbreaker if multiple inputs is what you're looking for

2016-06-09 12:55:04 UTC

Hmm I was planning on just waiting til amd's Vega so I'm guessing I won't need the multi inputs?

2016-06-09 12:55:05 UTC

Most of the smoothness is acquired between 60 and 90hz, anyway

2016-06-09 12:55:16 UTC

I have no idea

2016-06-09 12:55:22 UTC

You might want the HDMI input for consoles etc

2016-06-09 12:55:28 UTC

Since they never use DP or DVI

2016-06-09 12:55:45 UTC

The old QX2710 model only has a DVI input

2016-06-09 12:56:11 UTC

Blerg, keep fucking up the sentence above

2016-06-09 12:56:13 UTC

I need my coffee

2016-06-09 12:56:22 UTC

Oh

2016-06-09 12:56:26 UTC

Yeah my roommates have a big TV for consoles so I think the non-multi would be good

2016-06-09 12:56:36 UTC

And the models differ in panel types

2016-06-09 12:56:51 UTC

The old model sports a PLS panel

2016-06-09 12:57:00 UTC

While the multi-input models sport AH-VA panels

2016-06-09 12:57:10 UTC

What's the difference?

2016-06-09 12:57:42 UTC

Image quality generally the same, but PLS offers slightly(very) wider viewing angles and wider color gamut

2016-06-09 12:57:54 UTC

While AH-VAs are faster

2016-06-09 12:58:03 UTC

Faster in what sense?

2016-06-09 12:58:17 UTC

Less input lag

2016-06-09 12:58:32 UTC

4ms GtG vs 8 ms GtG of the PLS

2016-06-09 12:59:00 UTC

I don't think that's too much a difference as I rarely play cs:go

2016-06-09 12:59:01 UTC

Which I believe amounts to about 25% less input lag or something, depending on what you're doing

2016-06-09 12:59:06 UTC

Nah, it's not

2016-06-09 12:59:28 UTC

Both sit at around the comfortable 20s in terms of response time

2016-06-09 12:59:42 UTC

So, it's a matter of preference, really

2016-06-09 12:59:46 UTC

And whatever you can find for what price

2016-06-09 13:00:52 UTC

Hmm wouldn't it be better than to go with pls? As I am more of a "pretty graphics" guy and would it be cheaper I'm guessing as it is a older panel?

2016-06-09 13:01:05 UTC

I think those are more expensive, honestly

2016-06-09 13:01:16 UTC

Cause fewer in number and more attractive to overclockers

2016-06-09 13:02:57 UTC

Do you think a matte display is worth it as well? Just looking at the different options on eBay right now

2016-06-09 13:03:14 UTC

That's also a matter of preference

2016-06-09 13:03:29 UTC

But really, I don't know alot of people who like glossy

2016-06-09 13:05:09 UTC

I mean, glossy is cool and all, until it gets a little light and starts reflecting all over

2016-06-09 13:06:00 UTC

Do you know if true10 means AH-VA? I don't know if that means all monitors but I assume that's what it means

2016-06-09 13:06:51 UTC

If it's got "multi" in the name

2016-06-09 13:06:55 UTC

It's the AH-VA panel

2016-06-09 13:07:33 UTC

This is the PLS one, directly from the official reseller

2016-06-09 13:07:47 UTC

fuck that's sexy

2016-06-09 13:11:36 UTC

Yeah I was looking at that one! Do you think it's worth it to get the pixel perfect for 50$ more or is the exchange process gonna be painless?

2016-06-09 13:13:00 UTC

I have no idea

2016-06-09 13:13:03 UTC

Mine was perfect

2016-06-09 13:13:13 UTC

It's a matter of trusting them or not

2016-06-09 13:13:29 UTC

But you can ask around and gauge the failure rates

2016-06-09 13:13:34 UTC

Now I'm dying to get one of these

2016-06-09 13:13:52 UTC

so cheap too

2016-06-09 13:13:59 UTC

Well

2016-06-09 13:14:13 UTC

You're gonna get slapped with the import tax once it arrives @Deleted User

2016-06-09 13:14:20 UTC

o-oh

2016-06-09 13:14:22 UTC

maybe not then

2016-06-09 13:14:25 UTC

Cause it's from Korea

2016-06-09 13:14:31 UTC

forgot Koreans aren't crazy like the Chinks

2016-06-09 13:14:33 UTC

And the value is way too high for you to dodge

2016-06-09 13:14:35 UTC

$5 TV

2016-06-09 13:14:40 UTC

Oh yeah

2016-06-09 13:14:46 UTC

2016-06-09 13:15:31 UTC

all mine have had creative lies on them

2016-06-09 13:15:37 UTC

I should save the packaging

2016-06-09 13:16:41 UTC

thanks for the pc part picker

2016-06-09 13:16:47 UTC

I might be able to do this

2016-06-09 13:17:07 UTC

Well, a better PSU and CPU wouldn't hurt

2016-06-09 13:17:22 UTC

Would still be within the margin

2016-06-09 13:18:04 UTC

yeah I have a bunch of old monitors and parts I can possibly use

2016-06-09 13:18:07 UTC

mostly from laptops though

2016-06-09 13:18:09 UTC

scheming now

2016-06-09 13:18:44 UTC

the classic 750ti + dual core intel meme would be perfect in an ideal world

2016-06-09 13:19:22 UTC

she only plays Civ 5

2016-06-09 13:23:17 UTC

Thanks for the info! It'll be awhile till I buy it so maybe there will be a new monitor by then! If not will be buying these

2016-06-09 13:26:49 UTC

Chink shit arrived!

2016-06-09 13:27:34 UTC

I'm going to have to speak to customer support right

2016-06-09 13:31:17 UTC

The chink seller said 5-7 days

2016-06-09 13:41:58 UTC

do that
