    Same thing, the top Android smartphone share almost the same specs, so saying a Tesla can beat a Ferrari is saying that a Tesla can beat a blue Ferrari, and a White Ferrari, and a Yellow Ferrari... User Interface makes a very, very little difference

    GPU Best Brands

    I went with Gigabyte because was like 50€ cheaper than MSI, and MSI was like 20€ cheaper than ASUS I made my own research and they all performed the same (I didn't look at the Gigabyte 1070 Windforce or whatever it's called, I think G1 is better cooled)
  3. I've come here to remember everyone that thinks 4GB of RAM is crap that it's a mobile processor, so the buyers of this atrocity sure just want to watch Netflix, edit files and surf the marvelous Internet, and nothing else that requires more Also, Samsung can get really cheap memories, so this is just a dick move...

    All alone..

    How about talking to your coworkers? Maybe they are interesting people, go out, having "work" dinners, you know

    All alone..

    And are you happy with it? Is your work the problem? I don't know if you went to college or if you are specialized in something, but if your work makes you want to cry, just find another job, maybe it will pay less but think about this: how much are you willing to pay for being less sad, or even happy

    No way is the matx

    Because not everyone need a lot of expansion slots The number of slots doesn't set the mobo price, if that's what you think, take a look at crypto mining mobos, 80€

    Help! New PC

    Dual boot MacOS on a computer? I don't know, last time I checked you needed specific hardware for it. Doesn't running Hackintosh or MacOS or whatever on a virtual machine cover your needs? Do you really need MacOS? I don't think it will perform that good on a PC

    How long will mac last

    Easy: always store your files on the cloud (dropbox, gitlab, google drive...) and you won't have any issues. I store my files on Dropbox directory, so I have them in all my machines and without problems. If your SSD dies, Apple will replace it so your data will be lost forever, install Dropbox again and ta daaaaaa, there you have your files. You are worried that the SSD is soldered and if something goes wrong... If your SSD breaks, then you sure will lose your data too, no matter which machine you bought.

    Switching from Android to iOS

    It's so easy to cheat on benchmarks, it's all based on hardware and software management. That's why I don't trust them. Wasn't OnePlus cheating like two years ago? You can't compare an iPhone to an Android device, you can get for $200 an Android device that can do the same things as a new iPhone, and that's because of people's usage of their phones. If you wanna game, go for a mobile with better cooling; if you got the money and just don't want to configure your phone, want reliability and so, go for an iPhone. That's how it works, from years now. Android devices can't be compared with iPhones because what really counts is the user experience, and that's personal.

    OnePlus 5 RMA- Extremely Disappointing

    That's your lesson: never buy OnePlus again, I learnt the same about Sony Xperia. It's hilarious that the warranty, supposed to be needed by law, doesn't work.

    repairing a broken motherboard/PSU

    Ehhhhrrrrrr so they told you that your PSU has enough issues to be replaced, but they also told you that the component that provides with electricity and that has enough issues to be replaced is fine for regular use? I don't know if they are idiots or if they are trying to sell you a piece of hardware you don't need. Your PSU is responsible of the electricity provided to the rig, so I would say... Just change that PSU and see if the problems stop. Maybe it's just a connector of the motherboard or the PSU, or maybe some chip is displaced.
