    SenKa got a reaction from hishnash in Peel off the new top - Apple refreshes macbook pro 13-inch   
    The 2 TB3 model is stupid, and has no reason to exist. Just kill it already, please.
     
    Other than that, a great though incremental upgrade. Would have liked to see a price cut, as $1700 is a lot to swallow for a base model. 512GB of base storage and 16GB of base RAM for the 4 TB3 model is great though, and likely part of the reason.

    SenKa got a reaction from Gromped in Upgrading to Super High End Build $6,000 Budget   
    Thats a LOT of dough to play with... I'd go AMD for sure. The build I am posting should be able to game fairly well due to the 4.5GHz boost clock of the CPU (before overclocking). Dual GPU's is included because you can actually use them. I went to the higher end of your budget. Could of course dial it back a bit.

    SenKa reacted to dizmo in WHY do I pay Adobe $10K a YEAR!?   
    I think the 14" would be a little too...small. When unsure, go big or go home right? 😂 I was thinking the 16" with the i9, 5500M, and 1TB SSD seemed like the smartest option in terms of price and componentry. If the 14" compares in pricing with the 13" currently, the 16" is a considerably better deal; the 13" now is $29 more, but doesn't come with a dedicated GPU.
    I don't think a Mac Mini is going to have anywhere near the power of a Macbook Pro. Probably, but Final Cut runs insanely efficiently on a Mac. Beating most programs for render times etc. She already has one of my old cameras, and she doesn't really need lights as she does mostly car stuff.

    I assume the apple route wasnt mentioned because LMG doesn't use Apple workstations for editing, but atleast in my experience as a "one man band" editor, FCPX + Affinity Photo does everything I need to do for my professional and personal editing. Though admittedly, I do switch from FCPX to Resolve and back quite a bit. My productivity between the two is roughly equal, and I cant say i have a preference.

    MBP is MUCH easier to use IMO. The majority of what I do could be uploaded on YT, though it is more prerecorded newscasting type stuff. I would 100% reccomend something like a 14" MBP (if its any good when it comes out), or a 16" if you have dough to spend. The current 13" isnt worth much salt, especially with a refresh any week now and the 14" in a couple months.
     
    FCPX is much more newbie friendly than DaVinci or Premier in my opinion, coming from a certification in FCPX and Premier and lots of years of using DaVinci,

    SenKa got a reaction from Kaloob in Flash a new BIOS on a Lenovo ThinkPad T430 with a Raspberry Pi 2B   
    Ivyrain runs on the default BIOS, no need to do anything else if all you aim to do is add a nicer Wifi card and use your own batteries. I *believe* it allows overclocking as well? But my T430 doesn't have an unlocked chip so I couldnt tell you.

    SenKa got a reaction from kokakolia in Is there iPhone SE 2020 review coming on LTT?   
    Almost certainly, seeing how they've reviewed every other iPhone since the 4s.
     
    Canada tends to get these things a bit late, and then of course the review itself takes a while. Be patient. Though, my prediction as to the summary of the review is:
     
    "Battery life is its weakest point, power users probably can't make it through a full day of use. Everything else is great other than the dated looking bezels and no headphone jack, but this price bracket is so thinly spread between phones in 2020 that there wouldn't be much else to reccomend even if it sucked. Word is there is some competition coming soon from OnePlus, so maybe some android fans on the fence should like and subscribe for that video."

    This is not entirely true, it depends if your seller updated his BIOS or not. I find most havent been. As for the Wifi whitelist, you can use ivyrain. If you want Bluetooth, however, you may need to tape off a pin on your Wifi card if your laptop didnt originally come with BT.

    SenKa got a reaction from kelvinhall05 in I need a programming laptop Windows VS Macbook   
    As for your choice in laptop, thinkpads are great. I used them for many, many years. My father used and ABUSED them for many many years before giving them to me. Elitebooks are great, when my father started breaking thinkpads he switched to elitebooks. I used his hand-me-down elitebooks for many, many years. A macbook won't put up to thinkpad levels of abuse, no, but it's not made to at all.
     
    All 3 laptops in question are the top of the top premium laptops in their markets, and you can't go wrong with any of them. As with Apple, Lenovo and HP have both made design blunders in the past. As an android user, you won't be getting the absolute most out of macOS. You'll be missing things such as iMessage integration. the ability to easily answer calls from your laptop, ect... I used a macbook air when I had my note 8, and even without all the fancy integration got a FANTASTIC experience.
     
    Buy what works best is the best advice anybody can give.

    I feel like apple aimed to sell macs with their own CPU's in 2018, 2019, and 2020 as well.
     
    But, if 2021 is actually the year its happening, I am very excited to see where it goes. 8 cores is also an interesting number, as thats the same number of CPU cores as their phones ATM. Given how powerful the A13 series is right now... doubly excited.

    Strictly speaking, with enough time, money, talent, and skill, anything *can* be done.
     
    But, as only one brand actually sells chroma-compliant fans, it likely wouldn't be easy and would probably require more time and effort than it's worth if you aim to do anything other than have fun.

    (Sorry for the weird screen name my initials are RIP and I was 15 when I made this account haha) I never posted before and literally signed in maybe once or twice into this account but something really sucky has happened and I just wanted to let you know how you have changed my life. Unfortunately I lost my job and after a few weeks of unemployment I am starting to look into selling all of my gaming stuff which unfortunately includes my PC to save up for college. I started watching your videos back in 2013 and still remember the first video I watched it was the "Ultimate Christmas Special & Guide". I came across it because I just started to get into computers and was hoping to build a computer that Christmas. Unlucky for me I had to wait until my freshman year of high school to eventually build one as my mom finally gave me the go ahead and it was the happiest day of my life. Your videos have taught me so much and has brought so much joy and color into the tech world. So this is just a big thank you for all the years of smiles, knowledge, and making socks and sandals look so good. You are truly inspiring and wish you the best. Also this community is stellar you guys rock.
