  1. So its about that time where I get kicked out of the house and into college. I'm going to be majoring in robotics engineering, so that entails a lot of CAD and MATLAB, plus I do like to game occasionally. I've been doing some perusing through Newegg trying to find a laptop in the $1500 range. I'd like to try and get a 1070 for that price, as there are a few options. I'm not entirely sure how important thickness is to me, as I've never been a laptop person, so some advice in that realm would be welcomed. I don't want to be the type of person who just stays in their dorm all the time working or gaming, so i'm going to at least try to make it to the library to get work done. My primary candidates so far are the Eluktronics P650HS-G and Mech-15HS barebones , the MSI GX63VR-NE1070, and the ASUS ROG Strix GL702VS-AH73. The main concern with the Eluktronics is that there are almost no reviews of them on the internet, but I do like that they aren't friggin red, I hate how nearly all of the affordable gaming laptops are red. They also allow for flexibility in drive size and type. The MECH version is quite thick, but that might mean there is better thermal performance, which is always a good thing. I do intend on this laptop lasting me all the way through college. 120/144hz would be nice but isn't necessary. Any input is appreciated, thanks.

  2. Hi, I have very limited knowledge in the field of general electronics. I want to build a solar boat with a pool net attached. I plan on just getting a 5Ah 12v Sealed Lead Acid from amazon (because Lipos are a pain in the ass) and one of those cheap 12v 5watt solar panels to charge it while not in use. Would I need some sort of charge controller or is that sort of thing not necessary? Thanks and byebye! http://www.ebay.com/itm/12V-5W-Portable-Solar-Panel-Power-Battery-Charger-Backup-for-Car-Boat-Automobile-/201450281105?hash=item2ee75f5891:g:50oAAOSwXeJXc25C https://www.amazon.com/ExpertPower-EXP1250-Alarm-Battery-Terminals/dp/B0010Z4MDK/ref=cm_cd_al_qh_dp_i

    Is it legal for a teacher to do this? [UK]

    My french teacher takes kid's phones who are using it in class and tries to guess the password like 50 times and gets them locked out of their phones for a few hours. She has guessed it right on a few occasions and changed the language to Norwegian. Good fun.
  5. Hey guys, will buying 4 of these ( http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005T63BJM?gwSec=1&redirect=true&ref_=s9_simh_gw_p147_d0_i6 ) work the same as buying one of these? ( http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengeance-Desktop-Memory-CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10/dp/B0068ZWZY0/ref=sr_1_4?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1450105233&sr=1-4&keywords=32gb+ram )? For some reason it is cheaper to get 4 individual ones. Thanks, bye bye!

    30$ In-Ears

    Hands down I'd have to say the Soundmagic e10. I own both the soundmagic e10 and the Meelectronic M6 pros and i'd take the e10s over them any day. The m6 pros have a slightly muddy sound and the left one was a bit louder than the right.
  7. If you aren't going to be working in a place where there is a lot of background noise, I'd recommend an open-back pair of headphones such as the Audio-Technica ATH-AD500x/700x or the Beyerdynamic DT990 Pros. I currently own the 500x and my only gripe with it is that it has a very very long cable, but that could be viewed as a positive depending on who you are!

    Best ssd for laptop?

    I'm no expert, but i'm almost certain that you wouldn't be able to fit one in a laptop. EDIT: like I said, not an expert :V

    What happens when you pour bleach on your toes?

    Audio Setup under $150

    I would either get black rubber bands or black zip/twist ties and attach it to your headphone cable so that it doesn't get in the way any more than a normal headphone cable does.

    Audio Setup under $150

    I've never owned any of these, but they got good reviews and should be compatible: http://www.amazon.com/Samson-Meteor-Studio-Microphone-Chrome/dp/B004MF39YS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1444885268&sr=8-1&keywords=samsung+meteor http://www.amazon.com/CAD-U37-Condenser-Recording-Microphone/dp/B001AIQGUO/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1444885298&sr=8-6&keywords=microphone

    Audio Setup under $150

    The iCE is just a stripped down version with less flexibility ( unless you are on a super tight budget and can't budge a few dollars) , and no you wouldn't need a soundcard.

    Audio Setup under $150

    I would say the Audio-Technica AD700x and a Blue Snowball ( not ice ) or a Antlion modmic ( depending on what you are into ), but i might just be a little bit biased EDIT: I suggest watching this video

    Electric self transport

    I just wouldn't know where to put it, I probably wouldn't be comfortable leaving it out locked to a pole. The kids at my school are pretty much all douchebags

    Electric self transport

    it is definitely the coolest looking option!
