    ty :P

  2. Hi, does anybody know of a good prebuilt PC with tons of HDD expansion? preferably something modern so AMD APU or Intel core i3 4th gen would be great. Thanks .
  3. Plot Twitst: Elon Musk is somehow a descendant of Pablo Escobar. /joke
  4. How else was Tesla gonna be able to buy back stock and take their company private? /joke

      like i said it wasn't worth posting. A disgruntle employee flat out lies... 

  5. Tesla, the electric car company behind the Model S, has been accused of covering up "substantial narco trafficking" in their Nevada Gigafactory. The complaint was filed by a former Tesla employee with the SEC this summer. The complaint alleges that several Tesla employees participated in trafficking illegal narcotics such as cocaine and crystal methamphetamine on behalf of a Mexican drug cartel. This is what Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, had to say: that emoji is supposed to be a peanut emoji in case it doesn't load on your device. Musk's recent surprise announcement of wanting to take Tesla private have caused the SEC to launch an investigation into Tesla. Hopefully if any Tesla employees are guilty of the alleged narco trafficking they are brought to justice and Tesla punished for covering it up. Spying on employees is also a really bad thing imho.

  6. 2200GE is basically 2200G Ryzen APU but 35w instead.
  7. I love how nobody is talking about the base model's 4GB LPDDR4 soldered RAM

      the first one isn't really news. a guy said the dea told them there was drug trafficking and the DEA said "no we didn't". Then he said there were thefts and elon musk said, don't tell the police. Except the police have reports of theft. So it's already just a flat out lie. Some guy got fired and tried to make up an extreme story to make tesla look bad, end of story

  8. Higher clocks do mean higher performance in many cases. Whether that it noticable in everyday life is a different story. It's literally the only 10nm chip they could make without tons of defects. I wouldn't call that tuned. I would rather them make a 8250U quad core NUC for the same price. Honestly though, I wouldn't recommend people buy a PC of that size to begin with. The performance is terrible no matter which brand you buy and in a slightly larger package you could get so much better components. I honestly don't see how it could have been a lot worse but I'll take your word for it. Even for non gaming use, I wouldn't buy a dual core machine brand new in 2018. If somebody's buying used then fair enough but this is new and people will pay full retail price for it.
  9. Actually, you'd get less performance since this has worse turbo boost than 14nm products. I would argue that heat output would stay the same if not be worse since Intel has confirmed that their current 10nm node is worse than 14++ NUCs traditionally cost $500+ and this for $500 is super overpriced.
  10. It's a ridiculously underpowered PC and is basically Intel beta testing their Cannon Lake 10nm process.
  11. Google rebrands Google Drive to Google One

  12. @ARikozuM They should have called it Cringe Canyon so at least we'd know to be dissapointed.
