I just see no reason from a technical standpoint, that's what i've tried to explain. using 8 stacks is a bit more expensive? Who the fuck cares, its an enthusiast card anyways, and when it performs like expectet people will be willing to pay an additionall 100 or so bucks for 8GB VRAM.

What i tried to explain above was that you don't even need to increase slice density nor need to build more complicated logic layers. Slices that only use 1 channel are needed for 8Hi Stacks anyways, so are logic layers. And a different interposer for the 8GB models shouldn't be a problem either.

I had a Clevo back in the day. I think it weighed between 15 and 20 pounds, but it had a 17" display years ago. I ended up killing the battery and it lasted less than 5 minutes unplugged and it was a nice lap heater in the winter.
Despite all of it's flaws, I still liked it. I haven't had a gaming laptop since, though. I don't really need one if I have a decent desktop.

I want to, but I don't know why I can't. Spec wise it's not that far from my pc (955 BE, sapphire 7770, 4gb ram compared to i7-720qm, 5850, 8gb ram)

>two (2) inches bigger than most laptops makes it hard to carry around
You carry a 15" laptop exactly the same way as a 13" laptop. Weight is much more important, and considering how thin & light laptops are getting, the difference in portability between 13" and 15" laptops is becoming more and more negligible... I will say that using my 15" in lectures/classes that have those small desks that rotate up is less convenient than with a 13".
>>
>>48103707
>I've heard mbp suffers from this a lot since it doesn't have a vent.
No, my late 2013 15" rMBP definitely has vents & fans. It's hard to not notice them, especially in Windows because Apple decided to disable the Intel graphics if you're not in OS X, so Windows can only use the Nvidia GPU and it causes it to heat up faster. At least I think that's why mine gets hotter when using Windows.
>>
>>48104143
I'd say the ZenBook NX500 is the MacBook of Windows Laptops because the design is almost the exactly the same as one and it has a better GPU and 4K screen than the XPS 15.
>>
>>48103946
You can probably get the older model with an Nvidia GPU cheaper now. I got that one as a gift, I like it, but the most intensive thing I do is play Starcraft 2, which it handles fine.
>>
>>48103602
Don't buy the recently updated rmbp, wait for skylake

Do you have a strong password?

Check if it passes these requirements:

RULES FOR THE SELECTION OF PASSWORDS:

1. A password must be at least six characters long, and must not contain two occurrences of a character in a row, or a sequence of two or more characters from the alphabet in forward or reverse order. Example: HGQQXP is an invalid password. GFEDCB is an invalid password.

2. A password may not contain two or more letters in the same position as any previous password. Example: If a previous password was GKPWTZ, then NRPWHS would be invalid because PW occurs in the same position in both passwords.

3. A password may not contain the name of a month or an abbreviation for a month. Example: MARCHBC is an invalid password. VWMARBC is an invalid password.

4. A password may not contain the numeric representation of a month. Therefore, a password containing any number except zero is invalid. Example: WKBH3LG is invalid because it contains the numeric representation for the month of March.

5. A password may not contain any words from any language. Thus, a password may not contain the letters A, or I, or sequences such as AT, ME, or TO because these are all words.

>>48104904
The fact that you KNOW that he's using a password like that with the exact amount of words and numbers and the fact that it's camelcased.
That alone reduces entropy. But even then it's secure as fuck.
>>
>>48105354
You can make a dict with only the 500 most used words and still be able to crack a ton of bad passwords such as this one.
>>
>>48105390
I'm not sure about that. There's a pattern that can be expressed with a simple rule. If it had a special char anywhere in the middle of a word this would greatly increase its complexity.
>>
>>48104463
I don't give a fuck about your policy but the time it takes to brute force my password is so long it would take a theoretical computer consisting of the mass of the solar system longer than until the heat death of the universe happens.
>>
>>48105413

It would take you 542,534,722,222 (worst case scenario) hours to crack that password (without numbers and capitalization) assuming your super fast PC can crack 1 billion (1x10^9) hash per second and somehow your 500 word list contained all the words of his password.

So, no, it's not feasible.
