My faptop finally crashed and I purchased a new 14 inch HP notebook with 16GB of Ram, Intel i5, and a solid state 128gbHD. It was what they had at the store I went to - I didn’t bother specing a computer out online because of how soon I needed it.

I paid 800$ for it - Did I get memed? i havent opened it yet so I can still return it.
Why cant I get QubesOS to boot on my x200?
also should i get an autismpad

i really just need to be able to run multiple powerpoints/word docs and a browser. Sometimes i play old school runescape but thats about it
looking at this from a local ad:
x230, 16gb, 240 samsung ssd, i7 3520, battery lasts for 3 hours. condition looks to be very good

The thing is that when I connect my phone to any laptop it does not give me the option to transfer files. I have tried everything off the internet, even restore the phone to factory setting but nothing seems to fix that shit which is also the main motivator for a new phone. The cracked screen is a catalyst.
Use gsmarena's phone finder to search for phones with the specs important to you. Then read reviews.
Yeah, I really think it's a hardware issue. The fact that it's lasted this long just makes a stronger case for that. I've had that problem before. There's only so much you can turn up the volume before you just end up blowing out peoples voices.

It's a shame too, because otherwise it's pretty good hardware. But there's no way I'm dealing with that again, or busting out my blutooths every time I want to have a conversation. If you're one of those people who just texts it's probably a better deal.
How do you filter by verizon only?
Your phone is not a USB drive. You have to enable USB stuff (I forget what off hand or I'd tell you) in developer options (which you enable by clicking the OS version or something a bunch of time in the about section of settings) to do that. I set up a SMB server on my desktop and use ASTRO to move files over WiFi to avoid that. You could also send files via Bluetooth.

It should be the second one, but because the language is retarded it's the first one.
The second one, spaces in type names should be avoid where possible.
a: the integer that pointer points to is read-only, the pointer itself can be changed
b: the pointer is a constant, has to be initialized and won't be changed (ignoring C/C++ aliasing clusterfucks) thus will always point to the same space in memory, the underlying memory does not need to be constant

Why don't computers have a silent mode? Most of the fans on my pc (GPU, PSU) are turned off a lot of the time any way. Why not, what with the frequency/voltage scaling of modern cpus, have a mode which turns off all the fans for when you watch a film? I would've thought that since passively cooled things like phones and tablets being able to output 1080p a modern cpu could do the same?

What am I missing?
1 reply omitted. Click here to view.
yer missing that it's not a big+obvious enough market
if it were, manufacturers would've been all over that shit, cuz technologically it's quite achievable
the question is one of "will the benefits outweigh the costs" for each individual manufacturer
reason why I'm running 100% no-moving-parts hardware

not the same feature. Compare:
- "shut off fans if the temps fall low enough"
- vs "shut off fans and throttle if temps get too high"
the latter guarantees silent operation, the first gives you performance on demand and does not guarantee silent operation
>the question is one of "will the benefits outweigh the costs" for each individual manufacturer
also, this is why we need the *option* of open-source firmware to allows us to DIY this shit up
The components are not of the same architecture.

Phones can be passively cool when watching stuff only because ARM is essentially based on being a low power consumption architecture. Thus receiving less power it also heats less.

But such architecture needs really small circuits and a lot of optimized parallelism to work. Also RISC architectures use a technique called pipelining (read more on that yourself)

x86 cpus cannot do 1080p video, or even virtually anything, without adequate voltage, thus also more heat.
>- vs "shut off fans and throttle if temps get too high"

And you think that works by magic and rainbows? It's the exact same thing, you set the fans starting temp above the components throttling point, or set it to 0 at all times. Done.
It'll start throttling at around 90C.

The best search engine

Why do you still use cuckcuckgo instead of a searx instance?
It works, I just wish it didn't load so slowly.
because idk what it does better than cuckcuckgo
use another instance that just searx.me

you can define the search engines it uses, it isnt hosted on amazon, there are multiple instances you can use it with rather than just using the duckduckgo.com homepage, and you can even make it incorporate the ddg !bangs
>still using search engines that push net neutrality onto you
how do searx instances deal with google's captchas and bot blocking bullshit?

if i google "something index of" like 2 or 3 times i get a captcha. so how instances deal with this?

Why does /g/ hate Samsung?
It's been proven that Samsung does this by reserving extra capacity in their batteries, so when you charge up to 100% on your Note 8, it's not actually charging up to 100% capacity of the battery

8900K isn't going to happen. 8700K is already at the thermal limit of six-core 14nm silicon at stock can do without resorting to exotic cooling.

Intel already blew its load with rushed Coffee Lake chips and desktop-tier Skylake-XE (7920X-7980XE) and has wait until post-10nm process pan out. FYI, their 10nm process is a complete disaster.

AMD is already building momentum in server market with EPYC and is about to put the pain on Intel in mainstream desktop/mobile market with its Zen-based APUs.

Intel's own saving grace is literally its next-generation semi-integrated GPU (uses AMD tech) and CPU solutions.

It is painfully obvious that customer-tier Skylake was originally made to be a six-core design, but Intel didn't want to cannibalize its HEDT market. They figured that "four-core chips" are good enough for the masses. Ryzen upset prove them wrong so they hastely pull their six-core Skylake designs out of the closet and did a mild update (mainly upgrading APU and adding in SGX) and called it "Coffee Lake".

It is how Intel was able to Coffee Lake was able to get into the market so bloody quickly and the layout of the chip look like a Skylake chip with two extra cores as if originally had them.
Memory latency.
>Price drops on the 8700K to make room for the 8900K on the Z390 chipset. Z370 will be the equivalent to the B350, except not as shit.
>Boom, AMD aborted before it was even fertilized

Best Intel can hope for are some incremental upgrades to their process that will allow 8700k tier chip to clock higher. Their process can't be optimized further, this the best they can do is to follow some sort of very aggresive binning to get hypothetical 8900 to be released.

Unless they go for 8/16 mainstream with such chip, but that would have terrible thermals.

In actuality, it speaks well of Intel's fabs that their chips can clock so high without melting, but there is very little headroom to expand from it.

On the other side AMD will get their core to Inte's territory, clock wise, and that is going to be a murderfest.
Sounds correct. A the edge clocking capabilities power consumption tends to skyrocket. Hence 1kW I7 7900k.
