  1. You never stated what refinements...so how is the design clever?
  2. 1. Apple for a while has been on a trend of thinner phones and smaller batteries. Them not making their phones any thinner doesn't increase the thickness and weight of the phone. 2. Even if the battery went all the way to the top, it'd still look ridiculous 3.You'll find third party battery banks that offer the same feature 4. How is the design clever in any way?
  3. Even my ancient PCX 5750 is good enough for that under Windows 10...let alone my spare 650ti and HD7970
  4. No, they are simply disabling the iGPU as its faulty. Hence the same price, because Intel thinks that's a thing that goes down well (hint for them: it doesn't). Imagine if an RTX 2070 had the same RRP as a 2080, and you get the idea.

    New iPod Touch might be in the works for 2019

    Hint. Even my aunt's BT headphones, which cost (and are worth far more) than mine sound like shit compared to them. And that's comparing on an iPad pro (with audio dongle) and iPhone XR. BTW, my headphones were only $80 second hand.

    New iPod Touch might be in the works for 2019

    Name any set of wireless headphones that could come even close to matching my AKG K702 headphones.
  7. Because the cases themselves kind of negate all that effort put into trying to create the thinnest phone possible. Plus it looks extremely ridiculous compared to non Apple versions.

    New gen Celeron or old gen i3

    The second hand system is better by far. Even 10 year old core 2 quad systems are better than that new celeron based option.

    Overclocking GTX 970

    Possibly, depending on the game and program itself. My GTX 970 G1 Gaming's overclock (1329MHz stock boost, +90MHz core/490MHz memory) was noticeable when the card was pegged at 100%. However that really does depend on what your 970 can achieve, and whether or not you're hitting vRAM limits first.
  10. Even though I only have 1 game that can stress my 1070 at 1080p (Space Engineers...and it actually does need as much RAM+vRAM as possible to display things with high settings at distances past the default 15KM), I'm still seeing a shitload of benefits.
    Primarily in the form of HVEC and VP9 decoding, which actually means that my entire rig now consumes under 50W while watching Youtube (especially at 720p 60fps) and in the sheer fact that it has double the performance for half the power consumption in games. My now donated 970 kind of looks like a pig in comparison, since it was able to hit 200W with its small overclock (1379MHz over boost to 1401MHz).

    Windows 10 May Reserve Another 7GB For Updates.

    To an extent. Some problems that I've come across (or created) I've ended up solving purely by chance.

    Windows 10 May Reserve Another 7GB For Updates.

    Its actually stunning to see how long DirectX 9 has hung around for.

    Windows 10 May Reserve Another 7GB For Updates.

    The main issue for me has been that it simply takes longer to tweak Windows 10 in any way, regardless of how simple the tweak is. My other problems with it I've for the most part found work-arounds for (eg. a script that disables than re-enables ICS each time my desktop is booted up, since that feature was broken after 1607). I grew up with DOS and Windows 3.1, so Microsoft's decisions with Windows 10 while frustrating, don't stump me.
  14. When you're working on a laptop which has a very primitive version of UEFI. One that was more intended for developers it was that early.

    Edit: Its primitive to the point where you have to manually find the efi boot file on any install media.

    Radeon RX 580 stuttering/lag spikes in games

    Thing is, a Ryzen 3 1200 is only a good combination with an RX580 in some games. In most newer titles, which can easily make use of more than 4 threads (and even a fair few older ones) there will be times where the CPU simply can't handle the game, as it is a low clocked quad core. I myself found that in some games my old i5 4440 (almost identical in performance and clock speeds to your R3 1200) would actually bottleneck my GTX 970, which is a fair bit slower than your RX580.
