Experiences with non-techies

Any supporting evidence by your friend?

 

I think he then said: "Dude, *insert csgo team name here* play at 120FPS, how come you get more FPS than them?"

Nope .

  Your version means all people think they know everything whereas it is actually a subset of all the people.

The words WHO or THOSE can indicate a subset.

 

So either "The people WHO think..."  or "THOSE(colloquially THEM)  THAT think" would be OK, but certainly not "The people think..."

B) theanks.

 

 

Those people that think no matter the cpu, more cores = better.  lol. 

I still explain its more about the core design and speed of the processor than cores these days.  More cores are better dont get me wrong, but a fast core makes more difference imo.  

personally, im better off with a balance. but thats because of what im going to be doing with my PC.

most people are better off with a quadcore at a slightly above stock clock speed.

Me and my friends were playing cs go. This kid just bought his brand new Alienware. He was like "Its only a gtx 970 guys" with a sarcastic tone, like he is so proud of it even tho he was lagging and having trouble playing the game. I wanted to tell him so bad that its a 970m not a 970 and he overpayed for it and also alienware have bad quality products I think he payed $1500 for it, not hating, speaking from experience, I owned an alienware once.

He continued to argue with me that they did sell a processor upgrade, and said 'No man, I bought one, you just plug it in through one of the ports (i assume he ment usb) and it works!' I tried to explain to him once more... He followed up with 'it was a 1tb processor upgrade that makes the playstation faster'.

 

*Ding Ding* we have the issue... This idiot thought that a new hard drive was a processor, and that a new hard drive would make the playstation play games better... I stopped dead in my tracks, just agreed with him (as to not waste my time) and went back to the conversation I was having with my Father.

Actually using an SSD or SSHD instead of the HDD can help loading times a bit. They might have confused processor speed with loading times. Not gunna do anything about frame rates or graphics tho

Ok, tell him that it really is a 970m, he's not getting performance close to a desktop grade 970.

 

As for the Alienware products, quality is not shabby. Price is. Price is ridiculous as they make a serious premium off of their PCs. I have an X51 R1 myself, and it's not terrible. Build quality is alright, compartment design is pretty good, and upgradability is somewhat reasonable for the itty bitty case that they've chosen. Only thing that sucks are temps and an external 330W PSU. And the price tag

Lol ok ill try to tell him next time. Well ill tell you my experience with Alienware. I had a shitty 14 inch laptop which broke within about 6-8 months, long time ago I cant remember exactly. Then I didn't know that it was broken because everything runs but nothing was working properly, can't use battery, can't use gpu, cant even install geforce driver. I just thought that the batter was dead at the time and didn't think much of it since I wasn't tech savy back then. So one day I finally decided to call Alienware to fix my shitty laptop, the warranty ran out, so I had to pay $400 to get it fixed. I was like f that, I sold the laptop cheap and learn to build a pc from my brother. How much did you pay for ur pc?

Aw man that sucks the big one. I bought mine in the 8th grade, I'm in 11th now, so about 3-4 years this thing's been with me, no real problems besides the bad temps (kinda forgivable for small case), ext PSU (kinda forgivable for small case) and needing to upgrade to an SSD (need to install win 10) and 970 (haven't done yet)

 

It was supposedly 1,200 bucks, but with a student discount it was 1 grand exact

 

I got low 60s CPU and 45 GPU idle, and low 70s CPU and 70-80ish GPU under gaming load

 

Upgrading to a new case is a bitch, because the IO shield is embedded into the case, and I doubt AW sells those by themselves

They're a thing at certain stores. Quite big too. When I was considering buying a MBP I could get a higher speced machine for less money than the Dell XPS.

Well another story about my incompetent father.

It has been going on for a year now, he doesnt know how to use his damn Galaxy S5. He uses me for ridiculous things like sending emails and deleing apps off homescreen. This has been going on ever since August 2014 when he got the phone (he pays £40 a month for unlimited everything + 2GB tethering on Three). 

Well i told him kindly that i will download the manual and paste a link on the homescreen. He laughs it off, tells my mum and i get a shouting. I explain that i have been doing this for a year now. And she is like: "He is your dad!". It amazes me that both tell me to be independent and yet they cant use a damn smarphone and tablet, let alone my custom rig. 

Damn Bloody Asians!

Any of you have a solution to this?

He either has really bad memory or just don't want to remember and expects you to help him everytime. When it comes to the technical stuffs, just do it for them even if you have done it a million times. Write the instructions down on a booklet and have him practice on it.

My experience in a nutshell:

My teachers are ALL non-techies, so when there's a problem, I'm always the one fixing it. I go through this at least TWICE a day, and that's NOT hyperbole.

Should have contacted them right away. Dell sends technicians to your house to fix your computer. Typically next day. All Alienware computers give a one year warranty.

Yes, if you make a big purchase, try to ask for a student discount, there's military too, if you've served in the army
