    Lenovo P71 getting tired - P73 or other options?

    I have a weird use case where I am doing heavy desktop work at clients as a consultant. Currently have a P71 I bought when they came out that has a few issues (warranty is over). Total budget (in local currency) and country of purchase. Please do not use USD unless purchasing in the US: $2-4k...

    31.5" 2560x1440 165 Hz VA G-Sync - LG 32GK850G

    The extreme anti-Windows 10 stuff reminds me of dealing with countless old people and the Windows XP -> 7 transition in the IT world.

    What If Zen 2 Actually Sucks?

    I realistically expect the improvements to be almost identically in line as those seen with Intel chips from Sandy -> Ivy -> Haswell ->etc 2-3% when measured clock-for-clock. Power will drop, just as it did with the intels, when die shrinking. Enthusiasts don't really care about power.

    Replacing my 50" Samsung Plasma with a 65-75" TV. I'm lost.

    If it is a true 45 it should be fine, but for example our family room tv is more like 60-70 degrees viewing from our kitchen table (not its intended purpose) and it's a strain to watch. Sitting at a 30-45 degree I once again prefer the 8000 over the 6 and 7s I believe because it is brighter, or...

    Replacing my 50" Samsung Plasma with a 65-75" TV. I'm lost.

    I currently own in different rooms in my house Samsung 6000 7000 and 8000s The color of the 8000 is better in all ways and the OS loads and runs faster. Quality control is also better. I spent about a month researching this in January before buying yet another Samsung and wound up with the 55"...

    First-Ever 2020 Toyota Supra Sells for a Whopping $2.1 Million

    They do not weigh the same. The Camaro has higher advertised power. All this is addressed in the link up there and the motortrend head to head video. They have nearly identical power to weight ratio is based on advertised numbers. 8.1 is 97.5% of 8.3:1. They have splitting hairs identical...

    First-Ever 2020 Toyota Supra Sells for a Whopping $2.1 Million

    First-Ever 2020 Toyota Supra Sells for a Whopping $2.1 Million

    Not correct The SS 1LE is manual transmission only. Not a true comparison to the 8 speed auto car. The Supra is 3300 lbs. The Camaro is 3700 lbs. We will have to wait for trap speed...

    First-Ever 2020 Toyota Supra Sells for a Whopping $2.1 Million

    Exaggeration is cool and all but 2jz getrag Supras cannot reliably make 1280 crank horsepower on the stock drivetrain. Dyno pulls and roll racing are great but the only 2jz powered cars to finish Drag Week (drive site to site with no support crew) have GM TH400 transmissions and Ford 9" IRS rear...

    why do people state whether video card were used for mining?

    I have been running many, many 1080tis in a mining farm for the past year. Almost all of them are Founder's cards. I run 60-100% power limit. No undervolting but also no overvolting or overclocking. I have not had a single card failure or issue. My racks are enclosed with excellent, direct to...

    PCMag: Apple Is Ready to Ditch the Mac

    I've been saying this for a while. Computers represent 3-4% of their gross revenue based on the shareholder report my brother and I read over on Thanksgiving break. I would expect that the basic college student 13" MacBook is a Lion's share of that. The hardware and ongoing macos development...

    Razer Phone

    The camera really doesn't seem that bad to me, or maybe my bar is just very low. The screen is worse than say a Galaxy S6 or even a Galaxy S4, both of which I have on hand for comparison. The camera is not worse than either of those. I do hope this phone sets a precedent for 120hz, and the...

    Razer Phone

    I don't know to what degree he is "sponsored" by review item providers, because I don't see how you could go without mentioning the dim and reflective display I'll say again that max brightness on the Razer is.comparable to 50-60% on the $140 Galaxy Alpha

    Razer Phone

    I am going to order one when available. Everything looks pretty good to me assuming the screen doesn't have a stupid blue tint like the Pixel 2 XL. $699 is much more in-line with what I am willing to pay... $950 or a $1000 is a lot to swallow. A price that high basically necessitates insurance...

    Why so excited for the iPhone X ? It's the same old thing running boring iOS

    So you'd rather have two extremely douchey status symbol cars of vastly lower performance, from the same status-conscious vein as the iphone, while regurgitating internet nonsense about the z06. Way to be. The current m5 tied the rental car Mustang GT around VIR in Car & Driver's Lightning Lap...

    AMD vs. Intel HEDT Platform Showdown Editorial

    This is a great article guys. Threadripper just seems like a much more exciting product to me than x299...hard to sum up exactly why but Dan did a good job.

    Google Pixel and Pixel XL 2

    The screen on this phone is absolute garbage. Already packed mine up to send back. Far worse than my $140 Galaxy Alpha. If you think a severe blue tint from even the slightest off angle is acceptable then you must be blind. I have no idea how a $1000 phone could ship with a display like this...

    muh eye strain - 17"+ IPS laptop recommendations?
