Standard T420 kits are rare or gone by now. I think it had issues with flickering. The T420s kit may have worked properly, I don't remember. My previous machine was the T420. I would often use my IPS X61T for specific stuff, because the T420 is poor at color-sensitive work.

Hi /g/

Yesterday I cracked open my y510p to add more RAM and saw a SSD 'slot' I guess? Weird since it has none and the available slot already has a second GPU (that doesn't work but that's another story...) It does have a 1tb HDD opposite this supposed 'slot'.
I thought I knew the components but now I feel stupid, help.

The hardware you bought isn't part of the whitelist of allowed hardware that will work with your laptop. did this come direct from lenovo? if so I would contact them about it. if not well, good luck getting any internal wifi or video card to work without getting it direct from lenovo. I think that policy sucks but I doubt it will ever change any time soon.

>>58526341
Don't do that that might kill you MB, PCI Ex isn't hot swappable. Also, are you sure your model is a 750M GPU and not the 755M GPU? Both must be the same or it will not work.

>mfw you are too intelligent to use gnome

So after a long and painful goodby period, I finally realised that KDE is dead for good.

The logical thing to do, seems to switch over to its big antagonist, gnome.

Now I do understand that gnome works different from KDE and has less customization options, but there are just some things that are so wrong on so many levels that I can't ignore them.

But how the hell do I set anything in this bugger?

Settings is essentially worthless. The most obvious things I need to change, but can't figure out how are:
>have some kind of taskbar, panel or dock that shows my running programs. I know what activities is, but this is tied to some expose-like stuff, which, while sometimes useful and nice, totally breaks my focus. I just wanna keep my eyes on say firefox, throw my mouse to the left, look there for a split second and click on e.g. file manager
>where are the settings in file mananger? The stuff available in the burger menu is a joke. Alternatively: What FM can emulate dolphin? (Have a terminal available in the FM, have a preview panel or preview on hover)
>How do I get a proper task switcher? I dont want icons for the running "apps", I want a list of the windows and their titles on my current virtual desktop.

comparing the amiga 500 to every other computer from the era, everything just comes short in comparison and they are massively more expensive

while even the macintosh se was still monochrome, the amiga could do up to 32 colours and had the same specs.

the macintosh was around $3000 while the amiga was only $600

plus the games on the amiga where as good if not better than its arcade counterparts

how did commodore make such a capable machine this cheap?

I actually beat t1 without cheats, it was an incredible and fun game. T2 was something much different. It had the wonderful guns and even improved on the attacks and animations, making a rather perfect playing game (minus framerate stutters from n64 not keeping up, this was a HUGE minus in some situations), but the level design was so incredibly harsh I just couldn't finish the game, even trying to play through it with invulnerability. It was simply too hard.

Look at retro computing, specifically at this short video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESaTREAAzww

It gives a certain feel of purpose, access to all information in a way more open, but more importantly, more structured.

I bet some of the anons lurking this thread are thinking in gopher, usenet, and BBS, as things of the past, but what if that kind of networking can be brought back to do as the internet originally was meant for and share information we really want to?

Forums like 4chan can give a top of things, but for longer conversations in a more focused way, exchanging large files, or even text files, are harder to do anonymously.

Maybe this imply a sort of serving all in boilerplates and spoonfeeding the newbie and the casual, but also implies if such services were as easy as to post in 4chan they'll get as many people back into this as 4chan itself does.

Just consider, sites like facebook actually corrupted modern communications with their cluttered interface and only make easier to the much toxic personalities to succeed. Anonymous filesharing with a spartan interface is in my opinion the cure.
