  1. Thanks for the recommendation! I couldn't find any place that sell Chromebooks here but there are a few cheap Windows laptop that goes around at my local store for much less than 300 with respectable specs. Might consider getting one of them and throw Chrome OS on it
  2. So basically, I will be attending a high school pretty far away from home, and I need a sub-550 USD machine. A few available option for me is: -Get a laptop with the Ryzen 5 3500U, 8GB of RAM, 512GB SSD and use it as it is -Buy a cheaper model with the Ryzen 3 3200U or 10th gen i3 and swap out the current RAM ( Mostly 4GB ) for 16 GB of RAM, slap in more storage I'd be using this laptop for at least 5 years, until half way in my university courses so this is a pretty big choice to make lol. Gaming is also one of my priority, but I really don't play any graphics intense game anymore than League of Legends or CSGO. Also, these are the devices I'm currently looking at. I'd appreciate a lot if anyone who uses them can share their experience about it: -Asus Vivobook A412DA (Ryzen 5 3500U, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD) / (Ryzen 3 3200U, 4GB, 512 GB SSD) -HP 14s (Ryzen 3 3200U, 4GB RAM, 1TB HDD) / (Ryzen 3 3250U, 4GB RAM, 256GB SSD) -Asus Vivobook D409DA (Ryzen 3 3200U, 4GB RAM, 256GB SSD) / (Ryzen 5 3500U, 4GB RAM, 512GB SSD) -Dell Vostro 3490 (i3 10110U, 4GB RAM, 256 GB SSD) There might be more, but these are the one that attracts me. ( By the way the ASUS laptops mention above all have 4GB of RAM on board, and to make it 8gb they put in another 4gb stick. Price efficient, but upgrades are hard) Anyways, thanks for all your help! p/s found a laptop with Ryzen 5 and GTX 1050 on sale for $550 but they don't ship to my place because of the pandemic :'l big F

  8. I installed Ubuntu on my old laptop to give my cousin. The GPU is a GT 105m. Ive been facing overheating problem, and i use Afterburner to underclock it in windows. But I couldn't find any software that can do that in Ubuntu. Also my cousin doesn't know a lot about tech, he's just using this to watch youtube and playing minecraft so underclocking wouldnt effect the performace a lot. What program should I use? Thanks
  9. I'm going to build my first PC, and I'm considering the i5 8400 and Ryzen 5 2600, since my I'd have to share the computer with my dad and he do a lot of intensive CPU workload. Is it worth it to trade a bit of gaming performance for raw CPU performance. Thanks in advanced
  10. Saw a 212 EVO on sale at my local PC store for $5 off.Should I go for it or the stock cooler would do fine. BTW im planning to use it on a 8400 so if anyone who used both, can someone give me temps? thanks
