    SenKa got a reaction from Mad153 in WHY do I pay Adobe $10K a YEAR!?   
    I assume the apple route wasnt mentioned because LMG doesn't use Apple workstations for editing, but atleast in my experience as a "one man band" editor, FCPX + Affinity Photo does everything I need to do for my professional and personal editing. Though admittedly, I do switch from FCPX to Resolve and back quite a bit. My productivity between the two is roughly equal, and I cant say i have a preference.

    SenKa got a reaction from kirashi in WHY do I pay Adobe $10K a YEAR!?   
    MBP is MUCH easier to use IMO. The majority of what I do could be uploaded on YT, though it is more prerecorded newscasting type stuff. I would 100% reccomend something like a 14" MBP (if its any good when it comes out), or a 16" if you have dough to spend. The current 13" isnt worth much salt, especially with a refresh any week now and the 14" in a couple months.
     
    FCPX is much more newbie friendly than DaVinci or Premier in my opinion, coming from a certification in FCPX and Premier and lots of years of using DaVinci,

    This topic has long since run its course. Everything that's going to be said looks to have been said, and now it seems to have come to bickering and flame warring. Topic locked.

    SenKa got a reaction from kokakolia in Is there iPhone SE 2020 review coming on LTT?   
    Almost certainly, seeing how they've reviewed every other iPhone since the 4s.
     
    Canada tends to get these things a bit late, and then of course the review itself takes a while. Be patient. Though, my prediction as to the summary of the review is:
     
    "Battery life is its weakest point, power users probably can't make it through a full day of use. Everything else is great other than the dated looking bezels and no headphone jack, but this price bracket is so thinly spread between phones in 2020 that there wouldn't be much else to reccomend even if it sucked. Word is there is some competition coming soon from OnePlus, so maybe some android fans on the fence should like and subscribe for that video."

    SenKa got a reaction from kelvinhall05 in I need a programming laptop Windows VS Macbook   
    As for your choice in laptop, thinkpads are great. I used them for many, many years. My father used and ABUSED them for many many years before giving them to me. Elitebooks are great, when my father started breaking thinkpads he switched to elitebooks. I used his hand-me-down elitebooks for many, many years. A macbook won't put up to thinkpad levels of abuse, no, but it's not made to at all.
     
    All 3 laptops in question are the top of the top premium laptops in their markets, and you can't go wrong with any of them. As with Apple, Lenovo and HP have both made design blunders in the past. As an android user, you won't be getting the absolute most out of macOS. You'll be missing things such as iMessage integration. the ability to easily answer calls from your laptop, ect... I used a macbook air when I had my note 8, and even without all the fancy integration got a FANTASTIC experience.
     
    Buy what works best is the best advice anybody can give.

    I feel like apple aimed to sell macs with their own CPU's in 2018, 2019, and 2020 as well.
     
    But, if 2021 is actually the year its happening, I am very excited to see where it goes. 8 cores is also an interesting number, as thats the same number of CPU cores as their phones ATM. Given how powerful the A13 series is right now... doubly excited.

    SenKa got a reaction from thrasher_565 in Replace RGB fan connectors?   
    Strictly speaking, with enough time, money, talent, and skill, anything *can* be done.
     
    But, as only one brand actually sells chroma-compliant fans, it likely wouldn't be easy and would probably require more time and effort than it's worth if you aim to do anything other than have fun.

    SenKa reacted to rip123451200 in Thank You Linus   
    (Sorry for the weird screen name my initials are RIP and I was 15 when I made this account haha) I never posted before and literally signed in maybe once or twice into this account but something really sucky has happened and I just wanted to let you know how you have changed my life. Unfortunately I lost my job and after a few weeks of unemployment I am starting to look into selling all of my gaming stuff which unfortunately includes my PC to save up for college. I started watching your videos back in 2013 and still remember the first video I watched it was the "Ultimate Christmas Special & Guide". I came across it because I just started to get into computers and was hoping to build a computer that Christmas. Unlucky for me I had to wait until my freshman year of high school to eventually build one as my mom finally gave me the go ahead and it was the happiest day of my life. Your videos have taught me so much and has brought so much joy and color into the tech world. So this is just a big thank you for all the years of smiles, knowledge, and making socks and sandals look so good. You are truly inspiring and wish you the best. Also this community is stellar you guys rock.

    Linus' daily earbuds are airpods pro Linus' daily smartwatch is an AWS5 Alex was INCREDIBLY close to swapping his daily to a Macbook Air, and Linus didnt almost strictly because of the butterfly switch. Atleast 2 of their editors are macOS users, though i dont recall who by name. I also recall quite a few iOS users. LMG has at minimum 2 Mac Mini's deployed at their office  
    The only truly critical reviews of Apple devices i can recall in the recent past are... the 6 core MBP 15" (justified), and uhh... thats actually about it. That and i guess some people can take the iPad Pro 2019 and 2020 videos as critical? I dont, they critique apples utterly confusing stance on what the iPad Pro is, make a couple "whats a computer?" memes, and end off saying android tablets still suck.
     
    EVERY flagship android smartphone video since the 11 Pro/Pro Max's launch has drawn a comparison to it and many have fallen short per LMG's own admission. If you scroll down through the new video feed to your right on the forum, the latest SC video is titled "Why cant anyone compete with apple?" You're really, REALLY grasping at straws here by making some claim that LTT is presenting any sort of bias against or for apple...
     
    EDIT: I have used macOS and Windows interchangeably throughout my life, starting with OSX 10.1 and Windows XP and up to macOS Catalina and Windows 10. They both do what they are good at VERY well and anybody who says they hate one with 0 objectivity are genuinely part of the problem.
     
    You can dislike macOS, iOS, Windows, Android, whatever it is; you can dislike the company because their morals dont line up with yours, you can dislike the products because you have experience with them and its missing this or that feature, or whatever. Some people hate iOS with a vehement passion because of apps snapping to a grid so you cant have empty space. Thats totally valid. What ISNT is never laying hands on a product in your life and saying you hate it. I cant go around saying "Windows phone was the worst thing ever!". Why? Because ive never used one in my life.
     
    For your sake, and everybody elses, speak to what you know people. Having an opinion on something you have 0 experience with is incredibly short sighted and just undermines your own point.

    Looks like the iPad Pro is VERY near the perfect college kid device for anybody other than engineering majors (or any other compute-heavy field)
     
    The apple pencil is STILL hailed as the best of its breed, so taking notes hand written for things such as law or math classes where there are lots of special symbols and notations will be a treat in tablet mode, and for that 8AM lit class you got fucked taking the keyboard (which i pray is the same magic keyboard on the new air/16" pro) should prove great for writing that research paper due to the much improved maturity of Office 365 on iOS and multi-app support
     
    Honestly, if the trackpad doesnt suck and the gestures include 3 finger swipe to swap between apps... i might buy one.

    Uhh, most toxic...
     
    Probably some kid in For Honor using an open mic (keep in mind, on my team). Claimed he was rich and one of the best players in the game, and that i was trash, getting carried, ect... Then out of nowhere pulled out a race card and said "you're probably a n**** the way you play". Im mixed, and told him that. He responded with "I hate n***" and continued calling me that word and telling me how much he hated them. Just kept my cool and replied to him in text chat whenever i could without affecting my team.
     
    He was playing like trash as well... think he managed to go 1-10 or something stupid. The mode i was playing has games that normally last under 10 minutes and has a 20-ish second respawn delay. You can do the math as to how incompetent he was. I played a flawless game, and ended up with the best score on my team 😛
