oh noes, that means it is forever doomed to have 4gb ram until the day it dies!

if only these laptops had some way of increasing the ammount of ram! they are just as bad as Apple!!!

>Go outside for 10 minutes before posting about the real world please.
Going outside isn't enough. You actually have to interact with people.

When you interact with people then you will start to get questions about things, like what phone it is you have.

You would know this if you spent 10 minutes with someone.

Life's good
How cheap ?
>normies not impressed by the S8
Not true, just like with the 7.0 update on the S7 and Note5, the default rendering mode is 1080p after the update because it saves battery, and most people can't see the difference.

If you need/want the extra resolution go to your display settings and there is an option to switch up to 1440p. Then restart your phone and the youtube app should do 1440p video fine.

Before open source (90s): high quality software, decisions made by smart engineers, bug-free minimalist freewares, engineering degrees.

After open source: buggy/ad-infested software, decisions made by "the community" (who doesn't know anything about how computers work), bloated monsters constantly downloading updates, gender-studies degrees.

Very disinformative text. Thanks, /pol/ troll.
Are you retarded? Open source software and FOSS software is software made by people who care about writing it, so they generally make it good, and ad free. The shitware you're talking about is mostly made by companies with engineers that just want to shit out a final product that does what their shitty bosses say it needs to do.

Normies will buy IoT regardless
It requires to build every package from source and while it provides all the tools for it, that 'security' philosophy really holds it back. inb4 pkg install: nope, it's very basic and many things are not presented there.
Second thing is, packages aren't maintained as good as in Linux, post-install scripts are very basic to the point of non-existence. That leads us to a config mess, when it's your business to create 'included' config files and folders, the system will not provide them to you.
In the end, it will work, but if you're a novice, it will become an unmaintainable mess pretty fast.
>Why aren't you using it anon?
Too complicated to install. Is there a way to dualboot OpenBSD in an encrypted partition with Windows in the other, and OpenBSD's bootloader on a USB stick?

Had no competition
Why did you purposely choose the 7400? Shouldn't you compare it to the 7600?
My other pc is a small Asrock Deskmini 110 based thing with a Celeron G3900 and for basic Internet it's super fast. I only turn on this master when I need to get shit done. But then it's just so comfy. I can throw a lot at it before I even hit 50% load on the cpu. In rendering it's 3,2x faster than the I7-4770K@4.4GHz that I had before.

Scaling algorithms:
Chroma: NGU Anti Alias (medium).
Image downscaling: SSIM 2D strength 100% + tick scale in linear light and activate anti-ringing filter.
Image upscaling: Doubling: NGU Anti Alias. Algorithm quality: medium (luma doubling); Jinc AR (upscaling algo); use image downscaling settings (downscaling algo). Leave everything else as Let madVR decide.

Go to Rendering -> dithering. Chose Error Diffusion 2.

TADAM. Play some videos and monitor your OSD (ctrl+J) for dropped frames. If you get little bit of them at the start of playback then everything is fine. If they accumulate ALOT during playback than your madVR settings are overkill for your video card. Also if you have nvidia card then set your power profile to adaptive in nvidia settings.

Best intel cpu for a primarily gaming computer but also for someone with interests in animating and game making. Not necessarily fussed with cost but would like to be enlightened to what is good and what is better.

The 1800X cores are stronger than the 6950X.
Intel can scale their cores up when there are less of them, but AMD keeps full power no matter the core count, which is interesting.

The i7 7700K is the fastest single core CPU ever made, which means it pulls ahead in pretty much all games and poorly multi threaded workloads. If you're gaming and the tools you're going to be using are single threaded, get that.

If you're doing anything else (i.e. compiling large C++ projects for use in games, working/playing with the new graphics APIs, using properly multithreaded tools, etc.) get the R7 1700 or the R5 1600. They're cheaper (compared to Intel chips of similar core counts), The power draw is lower for more cores and threads, the motherboard lasts longer, they ship with an excellent stock cooler and have, at least compared to the 7700K, more PCIe lanes and cache.

pick one
got a Braun 5040 yesterday for 99 bucks
My first electric shaver (only wet the last 15 years before) and I am positively surprised.
Has trimmer and styler included.

If you read German, the "test magazin" did a test of all new shavers a few days ago:

TL;DR: Top 3 are:
Braun Series 9 9290cc

Braun Series 3 ProSkin 3040s

Philips Series 9000
