Let me guess...
I like being able to play video games anon
Ah yes I loved waiting 3 minutes for my spreadsheets to load on that little guy
>>83822186Is it worth buying one if I'm planning to use it as a home server?
>>83822190Install a minimalist Gentoo on it and play games that run natively on GNU/Linux.I can play Total War on my 2016 middle class Thinkpad this way.
>>83822192What sort of spreadsheets are you running?
>>83822251jesus why do electronics costs so much less in 1st world? this piece is worth costs more in dollars after converting it from my 4th world currency and that translates to almost 3 full months of median wage labour
>>83822186Oh yeah, I was about to buy one. Tell me anon, is it good for hosting a shitty server?
really they are great for a personal desktop, server or as an emulation machine but not much else. IMO a better value is a gaming laptop since you can disconnect it from your monitor and take it with you when you travel, and when you get home you can plug your laptop back in. If you wanted to do esports gaming for cheap for under 400$, you'd get a optiplex sff for 80$ and then buy a 1050ti for 300$.
>>83822251Holy shit if i'd be willing to pay that price I would buy an M1 Mac Mini and install Linux into it, nowadays Linux on M1 is running fine without wi-fi and GPU acceleation which is fine for running it as a server.
>>83822351It's even cheaper in the US
>>83822398You M1 shills are the most annoying fags on this board, no one cares about your aluminium foil laptop with a phone CPU.
>>83822451Seething x86let. I hate Apple, but you have to admit the M1 is amazing
>>83822509i'll admit no such thing it's a 40 watt laptop apu like any other, the only performance advantage it has is from being on 5nm before anyone else
>>83822509It's not "amazing", it's good in some use cases but still not competitive in most. The circlejerking fags who praise it as the most powerful cpu in the world right now are mentally disabled.
>>83822509not fooling anyone sanjay
>>83822398M1 Mac as a server?What is this zoomer shit dog.
>>83822186Yes, I don't use Chink CCP sponsored trash.
>>83822186I just bought one for the office, its pretty great.
>>83822186I have one of these as an always on machine and then have had a regular desktop for gaymes. But with work and life shit I didn't even turn on my regular pc for the entire summer, so no, I don't really need any more
>>83823476>superfishboo hoo some preinstalled adwaredon't tell me you use the OS that comes with the computer you buy.just install loonix or do a clean install retard
>>83823655>t. CCP Government shill>do a clean install retardDoesn't make a difference, it's baked into the BIOS.>boo hoo some preinstalled adwareYou really don't think the Chink CCP Government haven't injected other malware and spyware hidden in the BIOS?
>>83823688>it's baked into the BIOSSource(s):Dude trust me>You really don't think the Chink CCP Government haven't injected other malware and spywareyes I think they did and not only on lenovo laptops but probably on every piece of hardware that is manufactured there that's why you do a clean install first thing after getting the computer>hidden in the BIOS?again no source but even if that was the case do you think chinese spyware could be worse than intel ME that every computer comes with?if you care about spyware and privacy that much you still have options flash your laptop with libre/coreboot that way even if there is malware in the BIOS it's overwritten with a libre BIOS
>>83823774>Source(s):>Dude trust meEven Jewnovo admitted it was baked into the BIOS, it's on their website.https://support.lenovo.com/gb/en/product_security/lse_bios_notebookhttps://firmwaresecurity.com/2015/08/13/us-cert-lenovo-service-engine-lse-bios-vulnerability/
>>83823800>>superfish>>Doesn't make a difference, it's baked into the BIOS.>posts links to LSE not superfishgg retard>may run on certain Lenovo notebook systems that do not have a Lenovo preloaded operating system installed>Lenovo has released a BIOS update to disable Lenovo Service Engine and a utility to remove services and files left on the systemAnd even after reading the articles you posted, LSE seems to just be a BIOS feature that had a vulnerability and not malware like superfish.I looked at wikipedia and kaspersky blog articles about superfish and not once the word BIOS or firmware is mentioned in them.It's not great as it supposedly sends data "once at first start-up" of the computer to lenovo but it's not as bad as superfish and you're yet to prove that superfish was embedded in the BIOS.
>>83822186>CentreOI U GOT A LOISCENCE FOR THAT SHITEBOX?
>>83822186I like being able to compile programs in less than a day anon.
>>83822251>500 Aussie Dollarydoos>Thats 320€Holy fuck, I could build something that knocks this fucker out 5 days from friday.
>>83824876Are you German? Where do you buy your pc parts? Just moved here from nz and want to build a new pc but not sure where is the best place with my limited german
>>83822351taxes, dumbassyour shithole is probably one of these that go full retard on protectionism without even having anything to protect
>>83824902geizhals.de lets you compare prices of many stores in Germany
>>83824902check out https://www.mindfactory.de/.they offer zero shipping cost at night.
>>83822190I use one as a batocera box and it works great.
>>83822190The best games typically run on iGPUs anyways. I say this as someone with a 2070S even (mostly gets used for encoding and CUDA workloads).
>>83825021At least he doesn't have to run away from the ambulance.
>>83827664>assuming I'm american>assuming america is first world at all
>>83822245>wanna play games>linux
>>83822192you're supposed to use a proper dbms if you deal with 1m+ records anon
>>83824902>>83825387>geizhals.de lets you compare prices of many stores in Germanythis>>83826732>check out https://www.mindfactory.de/.also good but can be a bit pricysame goes foralternatecasekingfortknoxavoid the physical stores like saturn and mediamarkt at all costbest option by far is to buy used on ebay or ebay-kleinanzeigen
>>83823412what do you use yours for?
>>83824876>>Thats 320€500€ after VAT plus import tax for buying something from outside the EU.I wish I was joking.
Let me guess... you need more.
>>83822186At least a superior SFF Optiplex from Dell that pisses on your Lenovo shit.
>>83829440>a superior SFF Optiplexlike what
>>83829037What should be said is that private sellers on ebay and especially ebay kleinanzeigen can do pretty much anything to scam you. It's not too common but happens a lot with GPUs and modern PC parts in general
>>83829874Yeah I wouldn't order anything sight unseen off there, but I picked up a nice 1440p monitor off kleinanzeigen last night, the guy was happy to bring me up to his apartment and plug it in to show it worked etc. My Rewe German was surprisingly useful
>>83830648I also got a bike off there a few weeks ago and the seller drones on for ages about any tiny thing he'd noticed was wrong with it and then drew up a contract which we both signed lol. I like germans you cunts are kind of weird and nerdy but actually very friendly
>>83829874They added a secure payment system like on ebay. so in case of scam you can get your money back.Had it happen to me as well, naively payed 150€ and package wasn't "arriving" even though i gave him the right adress. So i got ghosted and no chance of getting my money back. These days are over now.
>>83822186I have this as a server and it's great
>>83822186Looks enticing but a docked laptop replaces these devices for my personal use cases
>>83829318Software development, several VM's and a shitload of browser tabs.
>>83822186>core i7you need less
>>83824902I'm the original guy you replied to.I use Hardwareschotte.de to compare prices, they have a more robust filter system and show more products / data per page than Geizhals. Literally like the difference between powerusers (HS) and consoomers/normies (GH).I also use Mindfactory often as they have free shipping if you order between 0:00 and 6:00 (Midnight shopping) and their "DAMN" deals where they dish out great hardware deals and it's not even bad stuff. But I don't shy away from using other vendors as well if it makes sense. ALWAYS CALCULATE SHIPPING COSTS AS WELL, otherwise you might pay more than if you just bought it from one store outright if you're not careful.If you're talking used hardware, see ebay and "ebay kleinanzeigen", the latter of which is a more local search centered around your Zip code and distances.Another great tip for used parts and PCs are "junk" handlers or Recycling-Places (Wertstoffhöfe) where they might even give you the things for free (if you know the people).Willkommen in Deutschland Brü, welche Stadt? Und warum 'Schland? Nur aus reiner Neugierde.>>83829410I know. The sole reason I don't buy cheap chink stuff. If I could get things cheap from outside the EU I'd push >>>/g/csg/ into the bump limit every hour all by myself.
I like USFF desktopsTook my thinkcentre with me in my backpack when i was living in a dorm on weekdays, i could actually play gw2 on lowest settings on this small fucker too i shit you not
