Time warner/spectrum customer. Paying $39.99 for 25 down and get around 22-23 normally. they raised my price to $44.99 with no real notice. called and complained and found that they are not handling customer issues like time warner would. they wouldnt give me a damn thing aside from "enjoy paying more". worst part is people paying $44.99 on new subscribes get the normal 60 down. So basically i can pay $45 for 22-23 or 65 for 60. no competitor in the area is any better. fucking fuck

mpv's UI is pretty much fine. If you really want to be a sloth enabler someone should make an "mpv config tool" that will write config and keybinds with a GUI that explains the various settings or a bunch of presets to choose from.

Oversample is the best scaler for removing judder without adding additional artifacts. I think oversample should be in the "default hq" profile you'd be putting in an OP, just mention that especially that scaler is highly subjective and to try out different ones. Same could be said for scale and cscale anyway.

I'm surprised there aren't more 3rd party ui scripts like mpv-progressbar.lua. progbar is great, love the customization options and minimalist look and i only find the mouse useful in seeking anyway.
I think most of the UI complaints are to do with the lack of menu and having to use a config file. I don't see how the current ui is lacking, you can do change volume or subtitles and seek, or do anything the average user would want to with it.

I got an Asus B350M-A that's pretty good, but yeah I wish we had a decent X370 option because when I bought it I was told the only differences would be SLI functionality but turns out the X370 boards get quicker updates and more overclocking options too.

Hi guys, what do you think about the Lenovo Y520 for 820€?
I am looking for a laptop that's pretty fast and durable, I won't use too much for gaming but I like the GPU with 4gb ram.
I study computer science so I will need to run some virtual machines, compile C,C++, OCaml etc

Here is the spec list:
> Intel® Core™ I5-7300HQ (2,5 GHz - 6 MB L3)
>8GB RAM DDR4 (16 GB max)
>1 TB 7mm 5400rpm HDD
>Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB
> 15,6 '' Full HD IPS display
Price: 820€

One of the thing that I am not too sure about is the 5200rpm HDD and no SSD, do you think that it will be a bottleneck?
Also I am looking to spend 900 max, so suggest other options too if you have better alternatives

May I suggest the P50? The gaming laptop you listed will offer shit battery and once it reaches a certain temperature, you won't benefit from the GPU.

Integrated Graphics are pretty good these days, and the P50 has discrete graphics that are actually meant for mobile. You can also plug in an external GPU through thunderbolt so you can hook up that extra render performance at home and still have a decent laptop on the go.


Honestly, I'd just save up and get two separate computers, gaming laptops are more expensive long term and are the worst of both worlds.
>>
>>61509711
The P50 looks pretty good but I am finding it for at least 1500 which is too much for me, my budget is 900, and I know I can't get much with it but I'm trying to find the best deal
>>
>>61509759
>Italy
Forgot about this. Depends on how much performance you need I guess. Still, with a gaming PC, battery will always be an issue so I can't recommend it. You'll have to ask another anon.

Maybe you can forward it by mail? Hell, even the X1 is 500 on ebay in the states and the specs are quite nice.
>>
>>61509804
Yeah man and consider that I pay it 820 only because there is a special offer where they remove taxes, otherwise it would cost 900.
But I think I will look for another one, I can't accept that it doesn't have at least an SSD

Running a 4 year old laptop that only cost like $350 new, it came with Win8 but I hated it so I downgraded it to Win7. It's got an Intel B960 CPU and 8gb of RAM, along with a 720p screen. Would installing Win10 speed my laptop up a bit (I've heard it's less resource intensive) or have no effect? Just FYI I don't play games or anything on this laptop, also buying a new one is not an option at the moment because I'm in the middle of moving a couple of states away.

I don't think any version of Windows required less resources than the one before it.

>>61506496
For starters W10 is not an upgrade. For two, you should rejoice and appreciate that W7 works on your W8 laptop and call it a sign from the gods. And finally W10, especially the most recent build, will significantly slow down your laptop.

OP here, I don't have an SSD (it's a $350 Gateway from 2013 after all) so it's sounding like sticking with 7 would be best after all. Thanks though.

>>61506496
It's not worth the upgrade. Just stick with 7.
