    Acer Aspire E 15 - General Use?

    I got the SSD on prime day so it was a great deal Thanks for the confidence!
  2. Hey everyone, I'm shopping around for laptops right now and I need a general-use machine for my mom. She goes on trips sometimes and takes my brother with her, so at the very least I would like it to be able to play minecraft and portal. I have a 1TB SSD I picked up earlier to throw into whatever computer I get her. Do you think the Acer Aspire E 15 is a good choice for web browsing, entertainment, low-demand games, and portability? If there is something better out there, please let me know what you think. I'll be buying around this weekend because her current laptop is on its deathbed

    Bending Skylake CPU's #BendGate

    They used a power drill to install thier cooler. That's what happens when you over tighten this stuff

    BF4, aimbots and cheaters.

    I've run into few hackers in BF4. Quick headshots are common, especially if you turn a corner while already aiming at head height.

    Ultra wide or 4K?

    Ah, I have shader and shadow quality maxed out. In GTA:O I drop to about 45 fps in some rural areas but mostly I get an average 63 FPS (and it is very stable there) The difference in settings helps me understand the discrepancy.

    Ultra wide or 4K?

    What are your exact settings in GTA V? I have turned post processing/AA down along with grass to get stable 60 fps and I have the same exact card you have. Of course, I am not running dual xeons, but I doubt that's the issue Edit: I am running the game at 3290 x 1920.

    minecraft server specs

    Yeah, that's why I said it's fine. I would add a 15$ GPU, but I have some friends with many emergency GPUs for cheap so I always throw them in anyways. Personal choice.

    minecraft server specs

    It's fine. I'd add a 15$ GPU to take care of the OS display, but that's just me. Give it a try!

    Extended Mouse mats

    I use the glorious extended mouse mat (white edition) linked by another poster above me. I would recommend you go for a black mouse mat because the white ones get dirty easily. I wash mine regularly to keep it looking nice. Steelseries also makes excellent mouse pads

    Extended Mouse mats

    Extended mouse mats leave ample room for the mouse (at least for me) How far do you move you mouse around? What keyboard are you using? What extended mouse mat are you looking at in particular? I'd imagine an XL mouse mat would give you more space to move the mouse. If you want maximum room to move your mouse, that may be the direction you want to go.
  11. That looks really awesome. I'm going to have to put this game on my watch list now...

    What's with all the dislikes on Linus vids.

    I didn't bother to watch the hot dog video after my housemate commented on how disgusting it was... The sound effects do get annoying after a while.
