they might have, idk but the Pavilion G6 i had was pretty ehh aswell tbh. it worked way better then this thing though and is way nicer to deal with, solid build, keyboard and screen. has an AMD APU with 8GB of RAM that played basically everything i threw at it at 1080p medium, which is way more then this laptop will do...(wont even play CS:GO at low 1080p 60fps -_-) the problems with that laptop was that the battery died pretty quick and it got hot, like so hot you didnt want to touch it at all. probably 60C around the keyboard O.o

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

Zbook 15 G1 had:

- Up-gradable CPU

- Matte screen for most models out of the box, up-gradable down the track

- 32GB RAM

- Essentially 750M GPU on MXM, so you can put in a new GPU if you can get your hands on one

And potentially do other stuff, including but not limited to:

Video editing in final cut pro.

Software development (this is a big one)

It's funny how people in my class try to organize information in tables but not knowing how to get tables

 

so it looks something along the lines of

 

--------------

| 1 | hi         |

| 2 | Boop   |

| 3 |bye       |

--------------

We always have the people who skips a few columns in order to see the whole text... Like there is no way one can resize a column. So there was this guy, who didn't want to learn this "trick", so every time he called for me I was like: You bloody idiot, if you're gonna have empty columns in your sheet, I swear to god I'll make you stand in between those columns.

This got hilarious after a bit.

Well if you want software development, just get a cheaper windows laptop that can run stuff like Unix and other software dev stuff well. It'll cost a lot less than a mac

Well if apple wasn't anti consumer and didn't lock away their dev programs behind their OS, that wouldn't be a problem. Although don't get me wrong, Windows has its fair share of BS, but at least you have a bit more freedom in terms of compatibility and being able to develop for other platforms.

Yeah ik but you can't deal with it, making macs a better buy for devs. There's a reason most devs use a mac.

Yeah ik but you can't deal with it, making macs a better buy for devs. There's a reason most devs use a mac.

I'm aware, but windows would certainly be the platform of choice if apple didn't do stuff like this

Na, probably Linux since you can run stuff more easily on a UNIX based OS.

 

Google actually uses a custom Linux OS for their developers (mostly).

Interested in computer architecture? Still in middle or high school? P.M. me!

 

I love computer hardware and feel free to ask me anything about that (or phones). I especially like SSDs. But please do not ask me anything about Networking, programming, command line stuff, or any relatively hard software stuff. I know next to nothing about that.

Hmm most likely now that I think about it. Plus Linux is light on the system, so that'd help. Being Unix based would be a huge appeal. Ah, linux, the advantages you present. It's unfortunate Linux is so underrated. It's a great OS, and it's amazing for stuff like software development and servers.

 

And how interesting. I wonder what OS microsoft programmers use :P

It's actually a Core i3. 

A PD got ~20fps with 2 chunks

Ryzen 5 3600 stock | 2x16GB C13 3200MHz (AFR) | GTX 760 (Sold the VII)| ASUS Prime X570-P | 6TB WD Gold (128MB Cache, 2017)

Samsung 850 EVO 240 GB 

138 is a good number.

i remember my old P4+6600 that got me about 5fps on lowest setting back in beta 1.6...

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
