  1. Looking to see if there are any of the new laptops that are budget friendly for those who don't need the extra graphics horsepower of an nVIDIA GPU. I want nice battery life with the 4 cores for multitasking and some Minecraft, Rocket League or Stardew Valley on the side. Acer: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA24G6HB3050&cm_re=i5_8250u-_-34-316-245-_-Product This thing seems nice. Has one of those IPS displays everyone keeps telling me I need. Although people have told me to avoid Acer budget laptops a lot. Has an SSD. ~665 USD. 10H Battery life? Seems too good to be true even for idle. Dell: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIADYY6GM9405&cm_re=i5_8250u-_-9SIADYY6GM9405-_-Product Great price on this one for a new laptop at 599.99 USD. Also claims to have IPS. Unfortunately only an HDD which I find unacceptable for any laptop in 2017. Less descriptive specs on Newegg page. Lenovo: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA3FA6E71782&cm_re=i5_8250u-_-9SIA3FA6E71782-_-Product Description is ~ same as others above. 589 USD. Are any of these good? IDK if all of them are upgradeable in the RAM department which is ideal to add an extra 8GB in the future.
  2. What are YOU made out of?

    50% Loyalty 50% Unity
  3. I tried the beta. I don't see any reason I'd want to leave Planetside 2 for it though. Does a lot better job of a sci-fi shooter despite the bugs and piss-poor optimization.
  4. I try not to make the idea of "cancer" something funny, but when you make games P2W like that it's one of the only things I can think of saying. I miss the days of just buying a video game for keeps. Hell even subscription based titles I can learn to love as long as it puts everyone on the same damn level.
  5. It doesn't appear so. I'm wondering if that is worth giving up at such a good price point. That W650KK1 you suggested in the other thread is also a compelling option although it's more expensive. It appears more modular using a modular desktop CPU though. Is the GPU also one of the modular MXM type? Also how does that desktop CPU 7400 affect battery life? Other thought is that it seems to lack keyboard backlight which is a bummer, but not the end of the world I suppose. Maybe that helps battery life not to use anyway?

Used like this seems to be the ideal way to not spend nearly a grand. Do you see anything wrong with this deal?
  7. High End Gaming in your PALM - ASRock DeskMini GTX

    So cooling and price are the issues? Cooling could probably be solved by both improving cpu cooler compatibility and somehow working a better GPU heatsink. Cost. Well that's Intel/nVIDIA's fault most likely. I'd opt for something like an i5 7400 for the CPU, but IDK if it would bottleneck a GTX 1080. If so maybe just downgrade to a GTX 1070?
  8. Finding ways to be entertained. I absolutely HATE being bored.
  9. How are Sager Laptops?

    Why are they bad? What are good laptops to play games on? Also being thin isn't a priority. (Within reason)
  10. Considering a gaming laptop for couch gaming. My favorite YouTube game streamer uses a Sager laptop: "XOTIC Sager NP8173-S2 (Clevo P670RS) - 17.3" G-Sync Gaming Laptop with Intel i7 6700HQ, Nvida GTX 1070, 8GB Ram, 256GB SSD, Windows 10" Thing is though I don't need a GTX 1070. An MX150/ GTX 1050 are more than enough for my games. Also I don't want larger than ~15". Considering I watch this guy regularly I feel like it's a good endorsement of their laptops that he uses it, but I have never seen any reviews of their laptops. I would probably be using it for a very similar setup because I hate gaming at my desk.
  11. Not necessarily. The cold war the way I see it was a war of ideology, Capitalism vs socialism, Collectivism vs individualism as well as a cultural difference. Nowadays I see it's been replaced with pure nationalism, militarism, imperialism, exceptionalism whatever you want to call it. It's pure cancer IMO and possibly the artificial means of the destruction of our species by ourselves.
  12. I haven't needed antivirus protection in ages, but I genuinely trust Kaspersky. I think this whole thing is US-Israeli attacking anything Russia just because it's Russia. It just feels like War is business and unless our species evolves or eradicates itself nothing's going to change that.
