Are gaming laptops any good or just a meme?
I see them around more often nowadays, I thought cooling was already a big issue for these, now they make them with 1080gtx.

If the gpu or any other integrated deviced broke, how would you replace it? since these models have no spare parts and aren't modular.

>69885492
>>Are 1080 only worth if you are planning on maxing your setting at 4K and nothing else?
Yea. You'll get much more frames per second at 1080p res though (higher than the 60fps offered from the GTX 1060). Personally, higher resolution and better frame rates ultimately matter in PC gayming rather than laptop gayming. 1080p @ 60fps is good enough for laptops imo, I'd go for 1440p @ 120(+)fps for PCs though.

4k gaming is overrated, it's great for huge screen movie TVs but for gaming monitors it'll sacrifice lots of frames per second. So I'd rather stick with 2k resolution until we get better technology.

Great, because I really don't give af about 4k and maxing out every game, I'm really casual about it, just want to play on PC.

OP here,

Please guys, if the only drawback is the batter life then theres really nothing.
I already said I'm not autistic enough to use these devices without pluging them first, I'm not playing video games at starbucks or taking it to vacations with me.
Mainly when I need to pass time while traveling for work or at friends.

And I'm really casual about it as I said, I just enjoy playing on PC.
I don't really pay much attention to 4K or maxing out the latest game, and futureproof(biggest meme around, people thinking they can be set for years ahead or that some rigs are obsolete after only 2 years...).


My question is simple: Are gaming laptops prompt to fail more often than desktops? Because I know that if I need repairs I'd have to buy a whole new rig.

Alright I'm sure this has been asked before and I apologize but here goes:

Best and safest and most anonymous possible VPN provider?
Preferably one that's logless (obviously), not HQ'd/located in the States, and one that can be paid for anonymously. I think I've narrowed down to Cyberghost, ExpressVPN and NordVPN...

thoughts? thanks.
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>>
I don't trust Nord or Express considering how much they spend advertising, but if you believe them then Express is the best for speed and Nord is the best for price
Don't know much about CyberGhost
Mullvad is the go-to recommended VPN here though

>>69885751
that's quite discouraging...they mention relying on HTTPS so if u use https within a vpn the provider might still be able to decipher your traffic?
They also talk about setting up a VPS...I would think that too isn't secure or private as those providers like DigitalOcean most likely can see the data in your VPS instance??

Ubuntu is replacing apt with snap. What do you think of this?

thank gnu I use debian
>>
>>69884444
>>69885336
It's ok, but it's easy to just check a system with what is there and install what is needed, as apt already does. Not sure why they consider it so difficult.
The only problem with bundled shit is the way winshit does it, randomly installing random shit into random locations. If it's all kept within it's same fucking .fuckoff folder then it's good. If you bundle your crap, you should NOT relocate anything. Including config files.
>>
Its pretty clear we're going to see a schism in the community soon. There is going to be a sharp divide between "Consumer" Linux and "Developer" Linux. The Consumer Linux will be using shit like Snap and AppImage and consist of a community of brainlets and the Developer Linux will be the traditional package managers packing their shit into easy to use boxes for the brainlets in the Consumer community. The Consumer side may even start excising the GNU out of it, why bother with the GCC when you won't be compiling at all? Think Android and Mac but for the desktop that uses Linux programs.

I'm not entirely sure if this is a good thing, the consumer side would certainly grow the financial side but this would probably kill the FOSS zealotry the GNU/Linux community fosters as corporations would take the lead even more.

Been rewatching some vids about the OUYA. It was obviously fucked from its inception and created with an unsustainable premise in mind (a console for phone games). But it did make me realize, could anyone jump into making consoles 4 generations after the last competitor (SEGA) dropped out?

Well yea, making full computers is a Chinese business. Europe and the USA mainly design parts. Doesn't matter if it's the omnipresent European ARM chips or Applel's IOS phones.

>>69885594
This is either the Nintendo Switch or Chinese tablets.
>>
>>69885466
I had a friend who swore up and down the Ouya was the greatest thing to ever happen to the game industry. I snagged one from a black friday sale and turned it into an emulation box. It worked OK but the controllers were utter garbage that would eat inputs like mad. For the most part there was fuck all in the store for good games. Towerfall was the only decent one.

You're asking the wrong question. Why do consoles exist? The do serve a market:
>normies who want plug and play games
>normies who are "used to consoles"
>children who need resilient toys (think the Nintendo 2DS)
Now ask, are these markets being serviced?
>the normies who want plug and play have three choices to choose from
>the normies who are "used to consoles" are probably used to a specific brand and have loyalty to it
>children have nintendo handhelds, as well as their parents' old phones
Someone could jump into the console market, yes, but the market itself is saturated. Not super-saturated; that was what caused Sega to drop. There wasn't enough demand to support that many companies. Right now there's enough demand for what is there. The only way a new console could succeed would be to either attract new players, or kick out an existing console. There really aren't that many new people in the console market; the Wii to Wii U and phone games jump showed this. The casuals who bought a Wii didn't move on to the Wii U, they moved on to smart phones. The only people buying consoles are dedicated console players, so expanding the market won't work. This means the only option left would be to displace an existing force in the market (Sony, MS, or Nintendo). Without a tremendous amount of loss leading, I don't think that's possible. MS basically did this with the Xbox to grab part of Sony and Nintendo's shares and it took them a decade just to break even. Considering the costs have only risen since then, it would take <Amazon, Google, Apple, etc.> even more money and more time. As these companies have better things to do and better ways to get a return on their investment it just wouldn't be worth it. Any company with the money to muscle their way in, has better things to do, so this means no chance of someone muscling in.

So to answer your question, no, no one could jump into the console market as it stands now.

What was that Plex/Kodi offshoot they had for this thing? I actually thought it was quite clever how it managed shit. You would plug in your Youtube, Hulu and various other credentials and when you searched for a show or movie it would poll everything starting with locally served files and then the other streaming shit.

They all seem to be from the same place, why speak English ?

"boys" vs "girls", is this kindergarten ?

I am all for bottom up progressive moves where necessary instead of forcing institution at the top level to do things in name of diversity or equality.

I think a much bigger related issue is non-race or gender related discrimination. Hiring based on who you know, friends family or whoever interviewer personally likes, making it known they are hiring in certain circles and not other etc. But the solution would be complicated and I don't expect to see any positive change in my lifetime.
