He's clearly going to OC it, go with with the CoolerMaster anon, it's a very good cooler
Yea, I'll probably buy it either way.
It'll be nice to have a massive screen.

I've heard it's fairly quiet also.
I have the same 85hz electron gun I've had for 10 years.
I believe it is a joke. Anyone who owns a projector knows it puts out a metric fuck ton of heat. It's like saying you're looking to buy an oven to only cook food and nothing else.
I'm annoyed that best buy is only really doing good deals on shitty laptops and MacBook pro/air. I have access to a $600 limit best buy credit card for purchasing a new laptop for spring semester uni with the stipulation that I pay it off with my Spring grant/loan money.

So, it looks like my options are: MacBook gbbair, or hp elitebook 8560w mobile workstation. I'm leaning more to the elitebook since the specs are way better, but I'm kind of put off by the workstation graphics. I won't be doing any cad shit, but probably some light video editing. No gaming because I'm not a man child.

How do workstation graphics, specifically a dedicated firepro 5950 1GB, handle stuff like video editing, hd video playback, etc?

(Other relevant specs: 2.6GHz Core H815, 12GB DDR3 RAM, 500,GB 7200 rpm HDD and a 32GB/500GB SSD/BED hybrid drive, dual booting win 8.1 and slackware Linux if I buy it)

What does /g/ think of Apple EarPods?
Tek syndikek hates ALL apple products, but still recommends them. I personally think they sound decent, considering the fact that they're $30
37 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Prefer sennheiser hd 25

I fucking hate dome shaped iem tips and love the earpod design even though the sound quality isn't the best.

Bose earphones fit good too, but they're an even worse company than Apple.
I think you can get LSTN Bowery earbuds for the same price.
The right channel completely stopped working on them

I had a back up pair of old ipod earbuds, of course those are shitty and the rubber on the outside of the buds both came off after a few weeks of use

Apple earbuds/earpods are garbage
they sound nice if I push them in and hold them, but they don't fit my ears well and tend to slide out, especially during exercise. I also have to hold the mic up to my mouth at times while talking.

I'd recommend earbuds with removable rubber inserts (assuming custom fit IEMs are out of your budget) to ensure a snug fit unless you're certain these will stay in tight.

They're not bad, but if they don't fit perfectly you can find better elsewhere.

Judge this, I'm a poorfag who doesn't play 2016 4k+ res AAAA games but enjoys his doter and his cs. Is it good for 60fps on medium? Is ppp a good aggregator of lowest prices?
nigga, remove that punk ass bitch GPU and buy some badass 2133mhz RAM instead

that APU is nice for high demanding games too
This, get two RAM modules at the highest speed you can afford. You need two for that sweet dual channel action or your APU is going to suck shit even if you crossfired it with that GPU.
What the fuck you doing, kohai?

disregarded as a typical shill

daily reminder that this faggot does this for free
My university has pc labs full of aged computers that are always being used, a shitty IT department that can't run the network properly, and patchy WiFi. I'm doing an engineering degree so I need to be able to run various simulations.

So the only option was a somewhat powerful laptop. It can get pretty heavy but running simulations remotely over this crappy internet would be a nightmare.

That said I can see the case for a desktop and a book for on the go, and will probably do that once I graduate.
you must go to a shit uni if the computer labs are that terrible

14.04 vs 15.10?

Its 2015 why cant Linux or Windows get high resolution scaling right?

Is it hard to program for? because everything being tiny as fuck seems to be the norm for most programs

Use a less shitty OS, problem solved.

List of less shitty OS:
because everyone is still using 1366x768
osx has the same problems but no where near as bad.

you probably wont notice until you plug your macbook into a different sized monitor or resolution
I only use 2 types of programs, web browsers and programs that run in a terminal. All of them scale fine.

C++ time.
say, guyise, i have a vector of virtual bases(of gui elements, for example) and those bases are actually concrete elements that can have various methods that allow you to interact with them. how would you provide these methods to the end-user who get an element as a base pointer from the object that stores the vector?

now, i can imagine two ways- manually casting pointer class or providing virtual bases for absolutely every setter that throw an error, therefore throwing whenever there's no overload. and both feel shitty.

Not only is it completely not made up, it's also only half the story.

When the SSDs didn't do shit, I presented a paper to management showing them I'd traced the issues, and the fact that even Google bot hitting the site ran this triple nested query bullshit to generate a table.

Management took it to the developer and came back with the solution: I would install Redis, which is great for caching.

So I installed Redis. And they made absolutely no changes to the codebase refused to believe they actually had to do something to make Redis useful.

They subsequently posted on reddit, wherein /r/webdev advised "your sysadmins musn't know what they are doing. If they did, you would purchase a cloudflare business plan". So they did.
