  1. Apple is genuinely just shitting on anti apple bois now.

    Apple: Announces out of this world performance claims with insane power consumption and more IO.

    Apple Hater: I am not buying cause of the HUGE NOTCH that covers 90% of the screen.

      You're literally complaining over nothing. The notch is functional. Incase you weren't paying attention, the menu bar goes up there and since the display is taller than standard. You actually are getting more display while being able to have a webcam.

      Its not a complaint. It actually does sound like one, I should edit it a bit. Also yeah the display is 16:10 i think perhaps a bit taller and the notch is in the center so most things wont be cut off. This is genuinely the best macbook design apple has done in the last few years.

      Ok updated it a bit to make it no longer sound like a complain.

  2. Literally Everyone: APPLE GET RID OF THE NOTCH.

    Apple: More notch you say

     

    MacBook Pro notch could actually be good news; here's why - 9to5Mac

      Just wait until they put a notch on the Airpods lineup.

      How would that even work?
      I mean I would totally be down for a mini display on the airpods case so you can skip tracks and play a random song without having to yell at siri or reorganise the upcoming tracks in shuffle even if it had a notch.

  3. I should have addressed this in my first post my bad. My best guess is that some Acer software or driver update occurred over night which cause the beep to begin. It is an Acer specific thing although I am not sure why they would do it with a beep as opposed to having a prompt display on screen but I assume that is so that the user knows it works when the display is off or the laptop is in sleep.
  4. It is a windows 10 feature. It is intended to occur to ensure the charger is properly connected. <removed by staff> https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/604675/beep-when-laptop-is-plugged-in-or-when-charger-is-removed
  5. So I went on the internet and found this:

  6. When you have 2 sticks one 8GB and the other 16GB with all the other specs being the same you still run in dual channel mode. Its only that the after the first 8GB of the 16 GB module is used you would run in single channel. For your use case I would suggest going with the 24GB of ram since it also gives some overhead for more applications/intensive tasks that you might later use.
  7. Ok so this is kinda like a last resort solution. If nothing else works get him an absolute nugget of a computer. I am talking like single core atom processor from 2007 or something. Make the computer/laptop so terrible that they wouldnt want to reset it. Just make sure it works for only what he needs to do for school. If that seems too extreme just get him an ipad with a keyboard and setup a child iCloud account for him and restrict alot of settings in screen time. Its practically impossible to break apple's child lock and screen time restrictions on an iPad or iPhone without access to a com

  9. Ok so I just found the stupidest solution to a problem which is the best kind of solution.

    Basically, in that core 2 duo system I put a 256GB SSD in it which is what I have spare, but the thing is that every restart that system tried to poll the SSD for the current spin rate for the drive. Now since its not a hard drive and did not send a signal the system thought it was dead. But if you hit f1 it skipped that check and booted up just fine.

    This wont be good since I want to have that box just sitting without any peripherals or monitor so having to plug in a keyboard every time it restarts or I restart it through SSH is annoying.

     

    The solution to this is telling the system that there is no drive in the sata port. This is an option in the ancient 2007 dell bios for some reason and toggling that stops the system from polling the SSD asking for the spin rate in the start because there is not supposed to be a drive in that sata port. But when it sees that there is a drive there it just skips the initial checks and boots straight into Ubuntu.

  10. Yes I have but nothing quite as new as yours. My quadro P4000 sounds like that and so does my CPU fan for that matter.
  11. There are a million different reasons. Maybe they use a different internal fan layout or they use a different bearing structure. From what I can tell there is no reason to worry about your GPU fan it is performing as expected.
  12. Yes even when spinning normally though it should be a volume difference during idle and while under load or during startup.
  13. Yes that's perfectly normal. That's how fans sound.
