  1. At least <15", preferably 14". Weight doesn't really matter. I'll probably bite the bullet on the Acer Swift 3. Is the screen really as dim as people make it out to be?
  2. My school hands out crappy $80 chromebooks, and they're starting to get on my nerves. I'm also a member of my school's robotics team (we do FRC) and the laptop we use is a garbo $100 laptop as well (2 gb ram AFAIK). I'm looking for something to replace both, preferably around $700-800. I won't be doing any heavy gaming on this; mostly just programming in Java. I might also do some light CAD work if we need to mill out any parts. I'll also be doing schoolwork (mostly just Google Docs) for around 6-7 hrs a day, so good battery life would be nice. I'm looking at the Acer Swift 3 and the Thinkpad E/T480. My main concern is build quality - I've heard that Acer's laptops are poorly built. I'm used to badly built laptops, but considering how infrequently I use them, I'm not sure how they'd hold up to daily use. Bumping up the E480 to an i7 + rx550 seemed enticing but the thermals drove me away from using a dGPU. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you
  3. I'm planning to buy a 500 GB SSD (upgrade from 256 GB because I'm running out of space), preferably under or close to $200. Any recommendations? I'm thinking about this one. Also, do M.2 SSDs provide a noticeable benefit over SATA SSDs? It's been a while, sorry
  4. EDIT: friend joked about Microsoft Word he might be using something like Blender at the very most
  5. His budget (I assume) is $500. The most he'll probably do is run programs like Blender/etc CGI stuffs on it. Is a generic, run-of-the-mill laptop fine? Or are there any specific models that are best? Sorry, I'm used to making desktops >_<
  6. Just anything for novelty. No headphones, mice, etc. I'm already satisfied with my build Sorry for not listing what I have, I assumed that anything under $75 that went towards PC building wouldn't be that useful except for mice and keyboards and SSDs Here's my build (roughly, I'm sure I cut corners in some areas) https://pcpartpicker.com/list/BNX3nn
  7. I got an amazon gift card as a gift, what cool tech should I get? Like, for novelty? Something useless but cool to have on my desk?
  8. Did it, these things are awesome I expected it to sound thin, but not at all. I tested it with a song I specifically knew was bass heavy and it blew me away. Some songs do sound a bit odd though. Most songs transferred fine but songs by Billain sound a little muffled. I'm probably just not used to the sound signature, the effect goes away if you listen to it for a minute or two like usual. It is a bit annoying though Otherwise, no regrets
  9. Sennheiser HD 558s are going for $100 nearby me should I just bite the bullet
  10. I looked at the sound demos for the ATH-M40X and the Sennheiser HD 558. The Sennheiser seemed more rich while the ATH-M40X sounded a bit more tinny. Is this because of the way he recorded the audio?
