  1. Yeah, tried looking at the large companies like HPe, Dell, Lenovo, Microsoft etc but couldn't find any good deals. Hopefully it will get cheaper in the summer when everything new from CES has launched
  2. A mini tower is sadly out of the question. I already have a gaming rig, I need something mobile since i live 70km from the university. But thanks anyway
  3. Hi I'm a Swedish student applying for a three year bachelor course in additive manufacturing with a focus on biomedical engineering and sports medicine. I have designed in CAD using Fusion360 and Inventor for about three years and I'm so sick and tired of designing on an old Latitude 5480 so I'm thinking of spending between 2000-3000 euro on a mobile workstation in the fall. I'm looking for something that i can use for Fusion/Inventor, Solidworks and NX. All with local computation. I'd also like to be able to run demanding games so i don't have to lug around my Tower 900 gaming rig if i ever want to go on a LAN-party with friends. I haven't been able to find a good deal for under 3000 euro with my requirements so if anyone would like to share good alternatives within my budget feel free to share them. The requirements I'm adamant about are as follows: 15 to 19" screen, with touch Six or more cores CPU 3840x2160 resolution Thunderbolt 3/4 support TU106-based GPU e.g. RTX2060/Quadro RTX 3000 or better 32GB ram capable Minimum of 2 total drive slots with atleast one being NVMe Not a mac Features that would be interesting but not required: 4G WWAN Sleek and light design e.g. something similar to Surface Laptop or Macbook Pro Additional screen real estate like on the Asus Zenbook Duo USB-C charging option Adobe suite bundling available Long warranty and/or tech support Wide colour gamut Able to be bought directly from manufacturer at a competitive price Finally I'd like to clearify that I'm only able to purchase this from within the EU or the UK. I'd also like to thank everyone who takes the time to help me, I've only ever bought desktops in parts and built my own computers so I'm not that familiar with what alternatives there are on the market for laptops.
  4. How come you're still using Unraid? It's such an awful solution in comparison to thin clients and Citrix Xenserver or VMWare ESXi with GPU-passthrough.
  5. Doing around 231k per day on full 24/7 usage with my 8700K and GTX1050Ti, but, as i have a FreeNas server with a Ryzen 5 1400 for transcoding 4K video to my TV i'd like to double my PPD by virtualizing two of it's cores and then adding a couple of cheap GPU:s to that VM. I have a fixed electricity bill included in my rent every month so power consumption is no issue for running this 24/7, I however don't plan to bankcrupt myself just to fold and that's why I'm here. Any recommendations for GPU's with a good output to price ratio under the 200$ mark would be much appreciated. Posting my work in progress gaming rig for them street credZZZ
  6. Update Before i went home over the holidays i used a recovery tool to find the files, they were all there, but the hex dumps where all f***ed up with encryption, so is there any way of decrypting the files after i have recovered them? Because i won't spend 130$ in licens-fee for the recovery tool if i cant decrypt my files
  7. Do you have any links to a software that will work? Might be a option if nothing else works
  8. After googling i found that if i just restore the MBR to the state it was in before installing the bootloader onto it i should be able to restore my files, but how do i go about restoring my MBR to the exact state it was in before formating?
  9. Well since VMware wouldn't work with Kali and i didn't bother doing the research to fix it i tried installing as second OS that i could boot into via the BIOS boot menu. Regarding the reason to bitlocker that partition, i also have all my nudes from snapchat and a backup of digital evidence regarding a court-case that i don't want stolen so i decided to encrypt the drive so that no one could browse through the drive and see that it contained files they could manipulate/erase for their own personal gain
  10. Hi I recently tried installing Kali Linux on my computer as a secondary OS that i can run instead of W10 when working with Linux. I had 2 identical WD HDD, both with their own 100GB partition, one used for my memes and browser downloads, the other was a clean partition for Kali. Now the fun part begins. When i booted with a live-usb for Kali and ran the setup, I managed to select the wrong partition, long story short now my bitlocker encrypted drive containing all my downloads and memes is formated with ext4 and has Kali installed on it. How do i recover my files?
