    The_Prycer got a reaction from Ukasa in Could This Be My New Laptop? - ThinkPad X390 Review   
    So there I was, installing Debian 10 on to a laptop when I couldn't use the trackpad. GUESS WHAT SAVED ME?
     
    That's right, the nipple of justice.

    I actually appreciate having the option for a 720p monitor. All I do on a laptop at this point is watch 480p anime streams,browse forums, and check email so the lower resolution is just a price saving point for me. Also I despise touch screens about as much as I hate Windows 8 (which is ironic because I hated Windows 8 since I didn't have a touchscreen laptop at the time).
     
    I realize Alex needs a higher end Laptop due to CAD work, but I rock a 1 core, 1GB RAM, 5400 RPM HDD iBook G4 as my daily driver so I guess I'm just a dinosaur.

    The_Prycer got a reaction from kirashi in Apple should be EMBARRASSED - Pixel 4 Review   
    If I may pontificate for a bit, for your edification, what you got called out on was disparaging Apple in your title+thumbnail over an objectively worse product. The clickbait is just part and parcel of being as successful a YouTuber as possible and I can't hold that against you since it's sort of how you employ people and feed your family. I'm a musician, I understand needing to get people through the door so they can spend money at the bar or on your merch just as much as you understand needing to get those clicks and holding our attention for at least the first 10 minutes of a video.
     
    Look, I get that LMG maybe isn't the most Apple friendly place on the net, but when you proclaim that "Apple should be EMBARRASSED" and then proceed to show me a device that really only competes with the iPhone in terms of price, then you aren't just click baiting me (We spent HOW MUCH on this mystery box?!) you are being dishonest with us as viewers and damaging your journalistic ethos.

    We believe tree planting is important, but a process that could use some modernization.  That's why we built a tree planting cannon - it plants trees in under 15s, and shoots projectiles at almost 500ft/s!

    The_Prycer got a reaction from Retro_R in MacBook Pro 16 Inch Leak in MacOS Catalina beta?   
    Honestly I'm just hyped for the keyboard being reverted. I've been holding out getting a new MBP because of that (well that and the T2 chip)
     
    I remember when you could buy a 17 inch MacBook back in ye day, but apparently Apple doesn't think people who do editing on the go want a larger screen. Hopefully the popularity of larger screen sizes on other laptops gets us back to larger MacBook options which should theoretically lead to slightly better thermals due to increased thermal mass and space for fans/pipes.

    The_Prycer got a reaction from Teddy07 in What do people buy that's seriously overpriced?   
    As a devotee of the church of the iSlave I have to disagree.
     
    so shiny new 6 core MBP is $2,400. For the sake of argument I'll put it up against a similarly spec'd Windows laptop like the $1249 Dell G7.
     
    Because I am a professional I want Logic Pro X and Final Cut, so we're at a cool $2,900 (rounded up) for the Mac (assuming I haven't bought the software before) and now we go shopping for our Windows machine. Lets just say you go with FL Studio since it's a pretty good DAW with lots of instruments and functionality, so you drop close to $1,000 on just that. Before you even buy a video editor or subscribe to Adobe, you're only $500 removed from the MBP. If I'm fine working in GarageBand and iMovie (which aren't all that bad) the price difference vanishes.
     
    Now, if all you're doing is checking Facebook and watching YouTube videos, then yes. Apple products are vastly overpriced, but for people who actually do stuff, I like my Mac.

    Generally speaking, all server RAM is ECC. If you were to have non-ECC RAM though, it would work just fine.

    the i5 does not support ECC RAM, so even if your mobo did, it probably wouldn't work.

    The_Prycer got a reaction from OppositeCube in Who thinks Linux is better??   
    Oh ho, you're approaching me?
     
    First of all, Linux is the BEST OS ever thanks to being open source and completely open to customization. If you're a giganerd and want to change something, you are absolutely free to do so and make it your own as many other nerds have done to create their own distros.
     
    EVERYTHING IS FREE. There are certain paid services, but if I want to run a program on Linux, I can find a comparable piece of open source software that works just as well if not better than a paid version for Windows or Mac.
     
    THE UTILITIES. I use drive cloning on Puppy more than almost any other utility and it is far more convenient than trying to do a Windows or Mac variation of this. As an actual IT person in an office, Linux is my default OS on my laptop so when I don't need Active Directory for something, I can just use Linux.
     
    I can run Linux on basically anything and revive old hardware with it. No longer do I need to toss out old tech when I can just run Linux on it and keep using my machines while not contributing to e-waste. 
     
    Gaming on Linux has come a long way in the past few years. While not all of my favorite titles are compatible yet, developers are making Linux versions of games and developers are patching things so I can play all my games without needing Windows spying on me.
     
    The community surrounding it. Windows is just what the masses use, Mac still carries a yuppie air of superiority about it, but Linux? You see another distro user and you're both instantly friends as you bond over your love of the kernel.
     
     
    It reminds me of Anthony and anything involving Anthony is a good thing.

    The_Prycer got a reaction from kirashi in What do you think Apple should do to be better and still set itself apart from competitors?   
    PORTS.
     
    Having the single port on the MacBook Air is fine and dandy, but if I buy a PRO model MacBook that thing better come equipped with an RJ-45, USB 3.2, SDXC, Thunderbolt 3, and USB C ports.
     
    Better Thermal solutions
     
    Its no secret that Macs thermal throttle like its going out of style and instead resort to some impressive software trickery to keep their performance in Final Cut or Logic faster. If Apple decided to make a slightly bulkier unit that could better handle the thermals of the processors they used and applied better thermal paste, Macs would be a much better product.
     
    Which is weird because iPhones have crazy good thermals so Apple obviously understands how to cool a product down.
     
    Better keyboards
     
    Just, better keyboards. I love my 2012 MacBook Pro's keyboard, but the newer models and even the stand alone keyboard are just disappointing to use.
     
    Modularity
     
    I don't want to be swapping CPUs out, but maybe don't solder the SoDIMMs and M.2 to the logic board with no option for replacement parts thanks to that T2 chip.
     
    iMac as a standalone monitor
     
    iMac's have beautiful displays, but once their internal tech becomes obsolete, you can't just use the beautiful display as a standalone monitor. Which is honestly a shame because they are such nice units.
     
    There's probably other stuff, but my lunch break is ending.
