    SenKa got a reaction from EarthWormJM2 in iMore's reply to Linus on why macs are slower than PCs   
    How about the Gigabyte Aero 15? Linus used it as a comparative benchmarking "thin i9 laptop" in the very video in question.

    SenKa reacted to Princess Luna in G4560 reaches 95+ degree when gaming   
    Cooler is more than likely faulty, but if you give us a photo of the system it could be easier to determine it... if you're using Stock Intel cooler on a fully closed box with terrible airflow with that open air GPU cooling solution this could greatly affect your thermals negatively... if to the point of this awful result though is a mystery.

    These threads aren't exactly allowed as far as I am concerned as they serve no purpose.

    SenKa reacted to Herman Mcpootis in A (potentially) faulty GPU   
    that's a GPU issue. remove drivers using DDU and reinstall just to be sure, but the GPU is probably dying.

    I don’t like a surprise prostate exam, although I appreciate their efforts for their prostate cancer screening program.

    SenKa reacted to mariushm in Do 'ALL' motherboards disable SATA sockets when M.2 sockets used?   
    Some boards have extra sata controllers.
    The 2 sata ports disabled thing i believe it's a limitation due to the small number of pci-e lanes chipset creates (i think 8 for x470, 5 or 6 for b450)
     
    An option would be Threadripper... 64 pci-e (4 to chipset, 60 pci-e lanes to slots and m.2)
     
    ex.
     
    300$ for 1900x : https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113457
    (cheaper in other places)
    250$ ASRock X399 Phantom Gaming 6 sTR4 AMD X399 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX AMD Motherboard
    8 sata + 3 x m.2 nvme + pci-e x8/x16 to plug 4 x m.2 adapter cards in
     
    + cooler
     
    Alternatively, there are sata controller cards/ hba cards to add more ports

    I don't hate Dennis or anything.... But out of the entire LMG staff, he wouldn't be my first choice to replace Linus.

    SenKa got a reaction from Fatih19 in Anyone remember Linus Tech Tips?   
    I don't mind different faces on LTT. These guys write the shows, and from my experience as a script writer there is nothing more infuriating than having somebody else not do justice to my work.
     
    If I write a joke that requires a character based delivery, but the guy who ends up reading my script doesn't have that character, the joke is gonna fall flat.
     
    If I were a betting man, I would say the writers are very happy with being in more videos for this very reason. There is nothing more painful than watching somebody else mince your work.

    SenKa got a reaction from Saksham in Need Help Deciding (apple laptops)   
    If OP were an engineering student, he would be foolish for looking at anything less than a portable workstation like the Thinkpad P52.
     
    If I had to guess, he is around the age/schooling of a college freshman. In which case he will need nothing more than Office 365 and Google Chrome.

    SenKa got a reaction from dalekphalm in An Open Letter to Linus Tech Tips from The Passthrough Post   
    Your video literally did the opposite, unless something went way over my head.
     
    After reading this article I think it is either a big clout chasing scheme or very easily triggered nerds writing their hearts out.
     
    The reason I say that is because 99% of the issues they poised are what I, (a linux noob, but otherwise well-informed PC and Mac enthusiast), would consider common sense. Or even worse, these are things you mentioned in the video!
     
    Below (in a spoiler tag, since it is long) is a copy paste of their main points of issue and a measure of their validity
     
    If you read through all that, feel free to correct me as (as I said) I am not the best at this stuff. Especially Linux.

    SenKa reacted to Luscious in The First OLED Monitor! - ASUS PG22U   
    My OLED display on my Galaxy was showing signs of burn in after just two years. For that to happen with a $4000 monitor is simply inexcusable. And you are correct - by the time the price does come down it will be replaced with newer technology for sure.
     
    It's far too expensive for a portable monitor, far too fragile to last beyond 2-3 years without burn-in issues and far too big to carry comfortably. This reminds me of the HP HDX9000 monster 20 inch laptop from 2007 - those things became tech dinosaurs pretty quickly.
     
    Show me a laptop with a 20 inch 4K IPS display, however, and my opinion changes.

    SenKa reacted to Prariedog13 in Elon Musk fails to have defamation case thrown out after calling Thai cave rescuer a "pedo guy"   
    Does anybody care about what the Unsworth said BEFORE Elon tweeted? he said "can stick his submarine somewhere where it hurts" and I would think that most of us would imply you know what, so really it was Unsworth who instigated, and Elon responded with what was still kind of unnecessary, but his response was only because of what Unsworth said in the first place.

    SenKa got a reaction from myselfolli in Clickbait titles and thumbnails   
    Which is his first objective, if he's running his business properly. Not only can you not make everyone happy, if he tried LMG would go under in a week.
     
    The issue with the term "clickbait" is that it's subjective to the content of the video.
     
    Being a long time viewer and somebody who keeps up with technology news regularly, I can't find a piece of click bait posted in the last 2 weeks. Some video titles are more informative than others, but "clickbait" is incredibly subjective and a term I disagree with. The general rule of content creation is that your target audience (For LTT, the mildly well informed techie) should know what they're getting in to before clicking play. The only videos I personally cannot match to that rule are (in the last 2 weeks):
     
    "This Changes RGB Forever"
    "Sorry Apple... 'The Notch' is DEAD!"
    "The Most Sensible Way To Kill The Notch"
     
    So, if I were at LMG's LTT decision validating all titles and thumbnails for validity under common wisdom I would have flunked 3 that have been posted in the past 2 weeks. Considering how many editors LMG employs a 3/39 rato (or 7%) failure rating is better than I could say for most of my subscription box.
     
    But as with this entire thread, it's all opinion.

    Macbook Air, IMO
     
    The Macbook has display cable issues, and a VERY fragile logic board
     
    The Macbook Pro is the cheapest, last gen model and lacks usable storage amounts (and storage is unchangeable on the 2017 model as well as the 2018 iirc)
     
    Macbook Air is lower specs than the MBP, but the best device by far given its higher storage. It is even fine for video editing due to Intel Quicksync acceleration if that's what you do. It is what I do, so I had to mention it.
     
    If you could afford a modern 4 TB3 port Macbook Pro 13, I would advise that. But the one you mentioned simply doesn't deserve to exist.

    Quick testing of the scenarios of which it failed prior, and could not. No amount of large, small, or compressed files could tank the drive to 0 Mb/s.
     
    I believe it was a Windows bug, as I was on 1803 the last time I had the issue.
