  1. Need help finding a new laptop for computer science. I currently have a MSI Ghost Pro, but at most I can get about an hour of battery life with it and terrible heat issues. I'm looking for a ultrabook laptop for around $1000USD that has good battery life and enough performance. So far I am interested in the new Dell XPS 13, Surface Pro 2 (will probably wait for a refresh), or an HP Envy. OS: No preference. Most likely will end up using Linux anyways (vm or dual boot). CPU: i5/i7 --- Which ever is affordable RAM: 8GB or 16GB? I believe 8GB might be fine for computer science, but I'm not sure about running VMs with 8GB (I'm also a huge multitasker) Screen: 13.3" or 15". 1080p resolution is fine GPU: Fine with integrated GPU, no gaming. Weight: Preferably an ultrabook style laptop Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Just looking for the best value for my money.
  2. Because Final Cut Pro is made by Apple and macOS is also made by apple. I'm sure Apple doesn't appreciate running their software on third-party hardware, however, it is possible.
  3. In Chrome, navigate to Settings > Advanced > Under Privacy and Security, click Clear Browsing Data Make sure Cookies and other site data along with Cached images and files are selected. Click Clear Data.
  4. I'm not highly experienced with VBox, but try to reinstall virtual box with the latest version. It seems like build 5.1.7 and below had this problem.
  5. My guess is just a faulty drive. Get a Linux bootable drive, and pull any data you can access of that drive. Check the SMART disk status also to see if the drive has reading errors. It could also be things such as an MBR configuration problem or something like that, but my guess is a faulty drive due to symptoms prior to the error message.
  6. Well, first you will need one of those raspberry pi's to be setup as the client for the cluster. Then the rest of those raspberry pi's will be used as servers. The client and server setup should be straightforward. All you need to do is install all the necessary dependencies and download the necessary Octapi files for the server and client.
  7. I was actually doing some research myself on this topic earlier today. What I ran into was a project called OctaPi. You can do things like develop a Python3 applications and deploy them to the cluster.
  8. I've been experiencing a similar problem since the "October" (November) update. Does the new folder show up when you restart explorer.exe?
  9. Quick question. Does a motherboard at least attempt to post if the cpu is completely shot? (Fans, leds, etc) 

  10. Tried everything and got a new PSU. My microphone light doesnt flash anymore, but the computer still wont turn on. Whenever the psu is turned on the green led on the mobo flashes and then fades away. I also noticed the board getting warm and smelling kind of funny so I'm going to just RMA the board and hope I didn't lose anything else.
  11. Believe it has a gray label. I also dont have another psu to test it. So when I press the power button literally nothing happens. Only LED I notice is my microphone which is flashing which it's never suppose to do. I checked my 24 pin and CPU pin. Aren't those the only 2 connectors I need that at minimum should make it post? I'm also thinking maybe my start button pin is loose by the actual button. But another thing I noticed is my PC shutoff when I bumped into my desk. But I did in fact check my 6 pin CPU and 24 pin connector and still nothing
  12. I was using my computer (built 3 years ago) and all of a sudden it just turned off. I tried turning it back on, but nothing would happen. No fans or anything. The only thing I noticed is the LED on my microphone started flashing. Usually the mic light stays solid while the PC is off, but now it was pulsing every 2 seconds. I checked my CPU and 24 pin connector, but nothing. I removed my PSU and jumped it using the green and ground pin and it fired up and the fan kept running. I'm really hoping it's not my motherboard. I swapped my thermal compound a couple of weeks ago, and I took it to a friends house 4 days ago. Any ideas? Specs: 6600k Corsair Cx750m PSU Asus Z170-a mobo 16 GB DDR4 g.skill memory Gtx 1070
  13. I'm interested in building a computer for a friend and his budget is $850. He is interested in playing games like GTA V, Watch Dogs 2, COD, CSGO, Fortnite, etc. I was thinking about pairing a RX 580 with something like a Ryzen 5 2600. Any recommended builds?
  14. Well Cyber Monday is here and I am looking for a new 65" inch smart tv. My budget is $2000 USD. Any ideas?
