    I will say there are some pretty great older lenses for Nikon such as the sigma super macro 70-300mm f4-5.6.
    Here is one basically brand new: https://www.ebay.com/itm/265317794462?epid=101714126&hash=item3dc62c429e:g:2RQAAOSwaSRhNSo-
    There are numerous examples like this for Nikon, you just have to dig a little (or a lot 😃 )

    I agree but finding somewhat decent lenses in that price range as well as a body is going to be very difficult.

    T7 isn't a bad pick. used X-T200 or X-T30 are decent options as well. A6x000 would work as well

    This is a pretty great kit with room left over for lenses: https://www.ebay.com/itm/234182976077?hash=item368664a24d:g:1PgAAOSwRU5hPHO6
    Bought the NEX 5r for my sister, great little camera. It even has phase detect auto focus!
     
    You could also just get the body and get the lenses you want
     
    Unpopular opinion but, you could also go for something like a Nikon D7200 and find super cheap lenses as Nikon used F mount for over 60 years. The D7200 is a legit really great cropped DSLR.

    That doesn't really solve much, and without knowing the person's mental state can make the bully worse.   Sure, it might make you feel better.   But, then there's the possibility of them coming back with a gun.

    In the video Linus comments on using proper contractors for electrical work.  There's also no evidence in the videos of any LMG staff doing such work.  You're just supposing.

    For that price, getting Ryzen laptop with Vega iGPU and 250gb SSD is better deal. Just Windows license in there is worth $60.
     
    Argument "well this CPU from 7 years ago is better than even older CPU" is not gonna help you sell anything. Don't compare to things you already beat. Compare with things that are beating your offer.

    valdyrgramr got a reaction from panzersharkcat in Fixing The Verge PC Build - feat. Stefan Etienne   
    To be fair, while this is a dead horse, the build wasn't exactly his fault.   Nobody corrected him at the studio.   They just rolled with it, and posted it without checking first.   They also kind of just dumped all the blame on him, and used rather illogical deflection too.   Like, they made it out to be completely all his fault then claimed that people judging the video were racist.

    Well, they might design it, but typically they're built by Foxconn and others.  I think Dell does, actually build their own at times on the server side.

    I don't doubt it for a moment. Bottom-feeders come out any time a non-white person does something poorly in public (or, conversely, too well), and some nut on the internet will be upset enough to send death threats about almost any given subject. That isn't to say that because such deplorable behavior is commonplace that anybody should have to put up with it. At the same time, it shouldn't be used as an excuse to dismiss the substantive criticisms made of the video.

    Pretty much. It's obvious neither he nor anybody else in the decision-making chain had the knowledge to do that video properly, and even if he realized it he obviously didn't feel he could refuse or push back. I also don't doubt that some of the "criticism" he received was racist and beyond the pale, so I will cut him some slack on some of the defensive stuff he said in the aftermath. I put way more blame on The Verge for how they handled the situation. They puked out a bad video, let Stefan be the face of the debacle when he was probably doing little more than following a script, and then attacked the livelihood of their critics and only succeeded in Streisand Effect-ing the whole thing.

    I’m glad that there is some kind of closure with this video. I feel bad for Stefan, even though he screwed up he didn’t deserve all the hate he got. Hopefully he can move on with his career from this.

    This, sure he said some stupid shit in his streams but I'm not going to put the entire fault on him either as I can't imagine the amount of hate he was getting from everyone for the original build you kind of just vent without thinking after a while.
