  1. Thank you. Ideally, I would be modding a PS Vita instead, as they are a lot more useful, but I can't exactly afford to get one with how pricey they can be. And buying one used doesn't guarantee full functionality. I get the feeling that my PSP is on its last legs. I bought it used a few years ago, but my careless treatment of it has rendered its screen scratched up (nothing major, just a whole bunch of small scratches) and the paint on the back is starting to fall off. I was a 3DS boy. That console has a lot of quality titles, like SMT4, Bravely Default and Kid Icarus, but modding it hasn't really lead to a whole lot. The utilities are definitely good, but emulators past the SNES/Genesis era are a bit spotty in performance. I'm tempted to ask if someone reading this has a Vita they would be willing to give away for (relatively) cheap.
  2. I was thinking about modding my PSP, but I've come across a bit of a problem. My PSP cannot connect to the internet, meaning that the only way to get anything from my computer to the console is via its Memory Stick. But, I don't have anything that will allow me to do that. The memory stick I'm using with my PSP (version 3000, btw) is what I think is a 8GB M2 Duo in an adapter compatible with the PSP 3000. My plan is to get an adapter to connect the stick to my computer with, dump it's contents, replace it with a micro SD Card in a Memory Stick adapter and use that for all of my CFW-related needs. So my question is: Does anyone have an appropriate PSP 3000 compatible memory stick-to-desktop adapter that they can recommend? I've been looking at this one (1st link below), but I'm unsure if i will work. The 2nd link is the Micro SD-to-Mem Stick adapter that I'm planning on getting. https://www.amazon.com/Sandisk-MicroMate-Memory-Reader-SDDR-108-E12M/dp/B004XUNW26/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&keywords=m2+duo+to+usb+adapter&qid=1593539304&sr=8-10 https://www.amazon.com/Funturbo-MagicGate-Playstation-Portable-Handycam/dp/B07F68FCHD/ref=sr_1_18?dchild=1&keywords=m2+duo&qid=1593539551&sr=8-18 Oh, and my PSP can't connect to the internet because it doesn't like any of the available connections.
  3. I remember recently hearing in an LMG Clips video a mention of keeping hard drives from spinning to increase their longevity. If I am remembering correctly, how does one do this? I have a 4TB storage drive that I leave unplugged when not in use to increase its lifetime, but it's a pain to open my case and plug it in every time I want to retrieve something, then unplug it after. I would rather cut out the middle man and just keep it completely idle when not reading/writing. I think the video was the one when Linus and Yvonne were talking about hard drives and there was something about how Linus has a drive set up to not spin when not in use (it's late where I am and I'm too tired and lazy to look for the video and check). I could just be having a massive brain fart (because I'm tired) if hard drives already to this. If that is the case, then I'm sorry for wasting your time. If hard drives do not already do this, then I would like to know how to achieve the spin-less idle state.
  4. I've read that noise is a problem on the G14, with it getting loud even when idling. Is that a problem on the Blade 15 Adv, and how much of a problem is it on the G14? I think I've narrowed down my choice to these two, and noise can bother me if it's too much.
  5. Alright, so I've narrowed it down to a Dell XPS 15, a Razer Blade Stealth 13 and a Razer Blade 15 (link below to a comparison txt file). I'm willing to spend about $100-$300 of my own money on top of the voucher to pay for this. My question now becomes, which one of these 3 is better/the better value for their price. Or is there another one that's better and around the same price as these? In case you are wondering why I am even considering a GTX 2060 in a laptop for school use, I'm not sure if I'll need to use something like CAD for some of my classes. That, and because some amount of future-proofing would be nice. Thank you. Laptops.txt
  6. I recently got a $1,500 voucher from my parents for my high school graduation. This voucher is to be used to buy a new laptop to take to college. So, I'm looking for the best laptop that both meets my needs and is $1,500 or less. Note that this money cannot be used for anything else. In case it helps inform your suggestions, I am planning on majoring in Computer or Electrical Engineering and possibly minoring in something software related. I may be willing to pay a bit more than the $1,500 if a good one is slightly over the limit. My Needs: High reliability. Longevity. (I plan on using this for the next 4 years.) Nice keyboard. Some amount of durability. Very good CPU and RAM for a high amount of responsiveness and speed (if there is one thing I hate, it simple web browsing and program loading feeling sluggish and unresponsive). Good amount of storage. Not an Apple Computer. I want some amount of versatility. My Wants (Not required, but would be nice to have): Capable of light gaming. Nothing too powerful, but enough to get by with older games and a few new ones. Capable of light emulation. Nothing more than PS1/PSP emulation. Good trackpad, for when I'm not using a mouse. Any suggestions are much appreciated. Thank you ahead of time.
  7. I'm from Kansas while my friend lives in Utah, near Salt Lake City. He doesn't really care where he gets it from, as long as the seller is reputable. As for specific stores, whichever gets the best deal. He wants it new. He says a 15.6" display is fine, so bigger would be preferred, but optional. No preference on weight. Longer battery life is preferred, but he says he'll carry the cord everywhere. His parents have not yet set a deadline for his decision, so I'm not sure if he can wait a month or two.
  8. My friend's parents are offering him $1000 towards a laptop as a graduation present. He would like it to be able to use it for gaming, but nothing too modern or intensive; he's fine with Low to Medium graphics on anything modern. Examples of what he plays are MW2, Warframe, Deceit, Portals 1 & 2, as well as Sven Co-op and Dead by Daylight. He's also played some GTA 5. I have some knowledge about good desktop stuff, but I know little about good laptop stuff. So, I'd like some guidance, pointers, or recommendations as to what to recommend to him. Requirements: Less than $1000 US. More than 15 inch screen. Good for casual gaming (like I said, he's most likely fine with playing on Low to Medium on any modern games). Audio In and Audio Out (His headset uses two different wires, one for input and one for output. I dunno if that's normal). At least 2-3 USB 3A ports Good build quality preferred, but optional. Good keyboard/touchpad greatly preferred. Upgradability optional, but he says he'd like this to last a while. 16 GB of RAM (I'm pretty sure that's a given for gaming). At least 512 GB SSD. Additional storage welcome, but not necessary. Windows 10 Pro. Any help would be much appreciated as I'm on the more unfamiliar side with laptops. Thank you ahead of time.
