I was going to buy one of those microservers at some point

2017-09-05 15:57:08 UTC  

arent xeons usually without integrated graphics?

2017-09-05 15:57:08 UTC  

to back up my files

2017-09-05 15:57:23 UTC  

oh right

2017-09-05 15:58:19 UTC  

i don't think this one has an igpu

2017-09-05 15:58:38 UTC  

i wonder if there is reason about the 6x2 instead of 2x8

2017-09-05 15:59:05 UTC  

cheaper that way, i presume

2017-09-05 15:59:45 UTC  

had my eye on this

2017-09-05 15:59:46 UTC  

that or some hi-tech -groupping thing for virtual machines

2017-09-05 16:00:04 UTC  

not great specs but upgradeable with a chink xeon

2017-09-05 16:00:13 UTC  

yeah

2017-09-05 16:00:16 UTC  

plus it's tiny

2017-09-05 16:00:32 UTC  

i'm just really feeling the speed of my a6-5400k

2017-09-05 16:00:46 UTC  

that's a cute pc

2017-09-05 16:01:09 UTC  

gen10 is 60dosh more~

2017-09-05 16:01:25 UTC  

not upgradeable

2017-09-05 16:01:32 UTC  

people seem to avoid the gen10

2017-09-05 16:02:26 UTC  

I'd just want something cheap to run back-ups to and maybe use as a media server

2017-09-05 16:04:09 UTC  

so what do you reckon, comfy

2017-09-05 16:04:11 UTC  

should i go for it

2017-09-05 16:07:38 UTC  

@Deleted User that xeon you mentioned isnt really better than your current one

2017-09-05 16:07:41 UTC  

so why go for it?

2017-09-05 16:08:22 UTC  

i just need a computer that isn't shit

2017-09-05 16:08:31 UTC  

and i have like, nothing to spend

2017-09-05 16:08:59 UTC  

saving up isn't really an option either because i gotta get a new phone as well

2017-09-05 16:09:48 UTC  

why is yours shit?

2017-09-05 16:09:56 UTC  

just get a partial replacement of the parts that are shit

2017-09-05 16:10:04 UTC  

well...

2017-09-05 16:10:05 UTC  

instead of buying a cheapo refurbished one

2017-09-05 16:10:09 UTC  

socket fm2

2017-09-05 16:11:49 UTC  

the socket in the one you linked isnt really supported today either

2017-09-05 16:12:05 UTC  

it isn't, you're right

2017-09-05 16:12:05 UTC  

just saying you arent doing yourself any favours with buying 7 year old cpus

2017-09-05 16:12:24 UTC  

alright

2017-09-05 16:12:25 UTC  

I'd rather get a used thinkpad for that price

2017-09-05 16:12:32 UTC  

i was thinking about that

2017-09-05 16:12:43 UTC  

my dad said i could get a laptop instead

2017-09-05 16:12:44 UTC  

you wont be doing any high demand things with either of those anyway

2017-09-05 16:12:53 UTC  

nah, you're right

2017-09-05 16:13:00 UTC  

maybe i should just get a thinkpad instead
