  1. I just recently bought GL502vt-ds71 from Amazon for $999, for the first run it was relatively slow process ... i had the laptop charging while turning on for the first time , it went to the screen saying "Hi There" and some text and a Button saying "Next" but the problem was that there was no cursor or pointer on the screen and moving on touchpad also didn't show any sign of pointer (stood there for like a minute or so)so i force shutdown and restart but then whenever it completes the asus rog logo it displays a screen saying "Your Pc ran into a problem , restarting ...." and after that a line showing "Driver_Power_State_Failure" . Pc restarted , then again same screen, then i force shutdown , took the charger pin out wait for a minute then insert the pin back then again after Asus logo same Your Pc ran into failure but after that line showing "DPC Watchdog Voilation" Please tell me any solution to make this laptop work or setup. Is it the failure of hardware or software ? Any solutions ? Any suggestions? @Dackzy @Pendragon
  2. Currently it is on sale @Amazon , for a price of $1108. Specs looks promising for average gaming (but with 970m , i can play my favorite games like Hitman 2016) and other productive tasks (Android development and C++/Java Programming , and maybe some Graphics Illustrator and Photoshop). I need expert opinion on this , is it the best price/performance ratio ? or should i look for another options. I am going to buy a laptop in this month , and i have been searching for a laptop since 4 months now ... Other options include :- 1. Dell Inspiron 7559 , $760 but was $735 at once point last month i think. 2. Ideapad 510s , ~$550 and then like after 2 or 3 years go for 1060 clevo laptop maybe. My current laptop is 6 years old (Fujitsu Ah-531), core i3 3rd gen .. so i am not an expert and even Ideapad 510s is way better than my current laptop. I am a CS major currently in my last year. P.S Budget is under $1000 , but if the Asus deal is worth it i can increase the budget for that. and i will only game while plugged in and at home but most of the time i will be doing my assingments and projects , so productivity > Gaming for me now. If you guys have other options under this budget then please advice. I could however go for Razer Stealth , but i have seen some experts saying that Razer has poor thermals. Link for Asus : https://www.amazon.com/GL502VT-DS71-Gaming-Laptop-NVIDIA-GTX970M/dp/B01FFRD220?psc=1&SubscriptionId=AKIAJ7T5BOVUVRD2EFYQ&tag=camelalerts-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B01FFRD220
  3. http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/p-series/p50/ Thinkpad p50 is currently on sale at $1071 I know the laptop is a beast and maybe overkill for majority of cases. But it's durable and so many upgradeable options. Currently i am waiting till december to make my final decision , i was looking at Dell Inspiron 7559 and also the release of gtx 1050 laptops. But then i see this laptop with such a great deal , but being a noob i don't know whether it's worth the shot or not ? because i don't know when will this sale end. If there are other great business laptops that might be durable (at least 4 to 5 years) , have good build quality and can be upgraded easily then please list out there names too. Currently i see lenovo laptops on sale, and i haven't tried any lenovo products yet but there business laptops looks promising @Dackzy @Pendragon can you guys comment on this?

    Searching laptop

    It's Best seller on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01DT4A2R4/ref=pd_aw_vtph_147_bs_tr_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=ASZ02Y4PF5HQP943P5WD And there's a guy on Youtube with channel name "TechDeals" , he shows different benchmarks for this laptop and also performance test including gaming. At first i was looking for this laptop but many "experts" told me to stay away from acer because the quality is crap. So what i am looking for now is Dell Inspiron 7559 that's the best laptop under $1000 unless you're looking for refurbished or used models of say like XPS 15 or 13. Here's the link to dell 7559 , https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B015PYYDMQ/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1476432352&sr=8-2&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_FMwebp_QL65&keywords=dell+7559
  5. Dell Inspiron 7559 , I am also looking forward to buying from that same link ! Hope the price would go down a bit next month. i5 +ssd option looks like a great deal and on top of that 960m can at least run modern games on low or medium settings. Also someone on netbook forum adviced me to wait a little and look for the release of gtx 1050 laptops, so I will be making my last decision in december 2016.
  6. I am looking for a smartphone for my dad under $200. Phone should be unlocked. Till now i have seen Huawei p8 lite and Honor 4c and between these two p8 lite looks good.But i am not sure, as i haven't tried any of them. So, any suggestions ?
  7. Thanks a lot , i have my eyes on the link you just posted earlier and am looking forward to it. Hopefully the price will go down near christmas. I have few queries for now , if i have more later i will Pm if you don't mind. 1. There is another Amazon link of Dell Inspiron 7559 i7 model @ $799 https://www.amazon.com/Dell-Inspiron-i7559-2512BLK-Generation-GeForce/dp/B015PYZ0J6. What is your say on that? 2. How is the heating on your model? 3. Somewhere i read the weight of the laptop is 5.6lbs while on the other side the weight is written 6 lbs. What is the weight of your model? 4. Battery life ? 5. Any issues you have ran into since you bought this model?
  8. Yeah you did, see your Inbox. Here's a Screenshot But at that time i was asking for a laptop under $600 So out of these 4 choices , 7559 wins ? and how much is the difference between i5 and i7 version of this laptop in terms of performance ? and also 950m vs 960m if Ideapad 700 is going to be compared against inspiron 7559? Thanks in advance
  9. 1. Ideapad 510s 14inch @549.99 + will buy a Samsung 850 EVO SSD (Recommended by @Dackzy ) http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/ideapad/500-series/510s-14-inch/?menu-id=510s_14_inch 2. Ideapd 700 15 inch @749.99 or @799.99 ( Quadcore + Gtx950, one is i5 other is i7) , will also upgrade SSD but after like 5 or 6 months. http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/ideapad/700-series/700-15-inch/?menu-id=700-15-inch#tab-customize 3. Ideapad 500 15 inch @649.99 http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/ideapad/500-series/500-15-inch/?redir=y&redirsrc=4#tab-customize 4. Inspiron 7559 @799.99 ( i5 version or if the i7 version drops down in christmas) http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/productdetails/inspiron-15-7559-laptop I have already told my aunt (she lives in US) to buy me a Ideapad 510s 14 inch , but i still have some time before she buys it and i want to make sure i am buying the right laptop out of the above mentioned. I want a laptop that could easily survive at least 4 years , then i will see whether to switch to those "Clevo" laptops or a Desktop rig. Right now i just need to buy a laptop that is easy to carry and can handle my work (Programming /Android Development , maybe graphics and video editing *not a professional* just as an hobby) , not planning to play video games on a laptop but if the laptop is capable to handle games like Dota , Hitman , Gta 5 even at low settings then that would be a plus point but it's not the most important point. Please give your expert Opinions , and as you can already see from the above list my budget looks like $800 give or take.
  10. I am sorry , i forgot to update this post. I posted the same question on StackOverFlow and got my answer over there. There is a logical error in my code if you look closely , In this part :- for (int x = 0,i=0; x < Images_list.size(); x++) { if (Images_list.get(x).IsSelected()) { Images_list.remove(x); } } I am Iterating the list as well as well as removing from it , solution to this problem is that either i use an Iterator or store the Indexes of Selected Images and later on remove those Indexes from Array.
  11. And I don't want to implement Contexual Menu, If it can detect Multiple Selection Successfully then it should also be able to delete Multiple Images Successfully.
  12. I am building an app for practice purpose , so it goes like this that Images will be shown on screen in a gridView and :- Below is the Screenshot of the app (done till now):- -if user clicks on an image another activity opens which shows the image that was clicked in fullscreen. (done this part) -if user long presses an image , the Image is selected and user can select multiple Images. (done this part) -There is a menu on the Screen containing Delete icon/item and Set as Wallpaper icon/item. (done this part) If User clicks on the delete icon of menu ,all the selected images should be deleted (NOT DONE , I am stuck in this part ). ^ As you can see in this Image , i have selected two Images now if i click on the RecycleBin icon on menu , it only deletes ONE Image the starting one (pink color) i.e I am trying to delete the Images in Main Activity (In this case it's name is ImagesShow) and then calling notifyDataSetChanged within the loop or outside the loop but it only runs one time and deletes one image altough in for loop it detects that at the moment Number of Images Selected = 2. Below is a snippet of code for this part specifically , if someone need more detailed code in order to answer then i can also provide it. //In MainActivity @Override public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item) { switch (item.getItemId()) { case R.id.deleteImages: //Inside RecycleBin Click //CountSelectedImages simply counts the Number of Images currently Selected if (CountSelectedImages() > 0) { //Images_List is an ArrayList of type Images where Images is an class containing ImagePath as well as boolean condition of IsSelected for (int x = 0,i=0; x < Images_list.size(); x++) { if (Images_list.get(x).IsSelected()) { //In our above example , we should arive in this location 2 times. Images_list.remove(x); //I even tried to write NotifyDataSetChanged here in this if condition just after Removing the Images_List. //But it still runs one time only , only deleting the first Image that is Selected and never coming back inside this if condition. ab.setSubtitle(CountSelectedImages() + "/" + Images_list.size() + " items Selected"); } } //So i read somewhere that we need to call notifyDataSetChanged once we have done all the changes in the array, so here is my final attempt but still it only runs for one time deleting only single image. ((CustomImageAdapter) gridView.getAdapter()).notifyDataSetChanged(); //Can also write BaseAdapter instead of CustomImageAdapter ClearWholeSelection(); //This functions clears the Selection of all Images , just as it happens in normal gallery }//end of if }//end of switch } However There is one glitch in this , i think if i try to catch it i might solve the problem. Take this example:- GridView Currently contains following Views:- 0 1 2 3 4 5 , Now if i select ImageView 0 and 1 and press delete , it deletes only 0. BUT if i press 0 , 2 and 4 , IT DELETES 0 , 2 and 4 ( Magic ? ) i.e IT WORKS FINE IN THIS CASE and also if i try to delete 1 , 3 , 5 It 's somehow able to multiple delete images in a column but when it comes to row wise deletion it only deletes one image. Other Method i tried was to make a function of Remove(Image) in CustomImageAdapter, and in the above for loop just call , Remove (Images_List.get(x)). and in Remove(Image) i try to remove the Image in CustomImageAdapter List (same as Images_List) and then call NotifyDataSetChanged from the CustomImageAdapter. Annnnnnd it also didn't worked. If someone can solve this problem or explain the working of NotifyDataSetChanged in baseAdapter then please write your answer , need to clear my concept. And there is also one interesting thing , i read in stackoverflow that getview() is called in a loop depending upon the getCount () function that you override , But then it totally blows my mind when i write in my Main Activity Images_List.get(x).ToggleSelection(); ((BaseAdapter)gridView.getAdapter()).notifyDataSetChanged(); Annd it somehow runs the getView successfully and shows the "Selected" text on an image as you can see in the Screenshot Above , but the thing is that the count i.e Images_list.size() remains the same so why did the notifyDataSetChanged runs Successfully here?? P.S Sorry for Long Post
  13. ASUS UX501vw , more specs than XPS 15, but with less price. https://www.amazon.com/ZenBook-UX501VW-Touchscreen-i7-6700HQ-Thunderbolt/dp/B01CQRNBJG ($1311) https://www.amazon.com/Asus-UX501VW-DS71T-ASUS-15-6-Laptop/dp/B018AX3OHO ($1478 , i think it has windows pro that's why it's more expensive). I am also going to buy a laptop soon , either XPS 15 ($1399 model) or this $1311 ASUS model , but i am more inclined towards ASUS model because of it's Price-Performance Ratio as well as 96 Whr Battery which i think is great !!
  14. True that , but what about that 4k problem ? I think it's called scaling ( i don't have much knowledge). I think it goes like this , that menu bar and text becomes so little to see. 4k is the only problem which i am seeing in ASUS as i will be using a lot of softwares from Programming/development to graphics and i don't want to end up in a situation where i am unable to use those softwares just because the product(software) is not compatible with 4k resolution and i don't think i can switch between 4k or 1080p in ASUS , just as we can switch between Integrated and Dedicated Graphics. Asus is looking so promising to me , but the only thing that is holding me back is compatibility of software's that i would be running (e.g Visual Studio/Android Studio, Adobe Suite , MS Office etc).
