  1. Hey guys, I'm looking to replace my MacBook pro. Thing is about 4 years old almost and it is starting to age really poorly, so I need help/recommendations. I only use this laptop for browsing and video/netflix watching but it can play SC2 fairly well. I don't need a gaming laptop necessarily, just want something that can be compatible, speed and resolution wise. So an SSD is a must with a quick CPU. This thing's resolution is 2880 x 1800, I can't seem to find anything comparable though expect 4k laptops which I was told has very little added benefit. Appreciate your help fellas (and ladies!).
  2. Last laptop I had is now confirmed irreparable, allowed to have a replacement. Think it was an ASUS X750JA or maybe something similar. Now I've used ASUS twice and they both are rather easy to break or have something went bad, looking for something more durable for a laptop at least. Last one had its IC short circuited when it fell off a short table I used in case you're wondering what happens to it. So what I wanted from the laptop would be : 1. Durable enough (an ACER notebook a friend had ever fell off his grip, had its HDD popping out, slight application of force to reinsert and all is good so there's that for measures), at least for a laptop 2. Can be used for some degree of gaming, cause, reasons, last one can run WoT at med-high or Payday 2 in med-high smoothly enough 3. Budget I have is around 900$ 4. Doesn't have to be new, so I'm up for recommendations on what kind of second-hand stuff I can get :3 On a side note, is having Linux and Windows installed as the OS causes any issues? Be it apparent or not. I ever had my IT teacher install em back in high school and they works just fine but I can't really tell if there's an underlying issue having 2 OS, also how to do it? And which Linux version should I look for?
  3. Hi all, looking to buy a laptop soon-ish and kind of need to update myself on trends etc. Use will be very minimal so I'm probably looking at something without GPU, I'm not sure yet what kind of things it'll be used for but nothing serious. So I'm thinking I just need to get an idea about the best bang for buck (and preferably rather long term - like 5ish years) concerning CPU, HDD/SSD options and maybe memory? 4G should be sufficient I think. Will post more details later TLDR: Got links or opinions on current laptops being sold in yurop? Post here It should fulfill following requirements (which may change) Durable (quite a bit of travelling, but in soft hands - should last at least 6years hopefully)Low price, duh.Probably not too big, will verify.
  4. As some of you may know, I'll be heading to the US in about a month for higher studies, and I'd like to have a new laptop handy. I'm not particularly familiar with the field, so I'm looking to every here for some advice. A few things on my mind right now: Which brands are good for reliability and performance? I don't need something like the bricks I carried during my army days but I'd rather not have something break on the slightest knock eitherDoes it matter if I purchase the laptop in the US or Singapore? This is a concern for both price (which I think should be about the same) and warranty (is global coverage the norm?)Performance. I'm looking for a smooth user experience. Preferably something that will not stutter on me on regular use (though that can mean 10 excel sheets, 20 browser tabs and go knows what else in the background) and can potentially be used for light photoshopping and some gaming (looking at i7/i5 Quad core, 8gb of ram, maybe more, and a graphics card that is more than just a nominal feature). This is primarily for school use, though that can still mean some pretty heavy loading given my habits. I don't need 4k or touchscreen.Profile. In terms of size the standard 15.6 would be pretty nice. I don't care if it's heavy if the package is compact enough to carry.Budget. I will need a second opinion on this, but something around USD 1.5k seems reasonable at this point. I'll probably be using this for a while, so I'm willing to spend more if necessary.Thanks to anyone willing to help me out here.
  5. I've been gaming since forever with a $10 Logitech keyboard + mouse combo on an hp dv-7 laptop... I think it's time to upgrade. No case, monitor, or power supply to reuse; I'd like to actually get my hands on some decent peripherals for a change as well. Don't need an OS or optical drive, will be running off wired connection so Wifi is unnecessary. Budget is variable: ideally I'd like to keep it below one grand USD, but I can stretch that to get some better parts if there will be a significant boost. Goal is to run modern games at a stable 60+fps on high/ultra at 1920X1080. Since I play WGLNA, it'd probably be nice to boost my tanks performance as well. I'm looking at two different tower builds. The cheaper, non-overclock-capable one is: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel Core i5-4590 3.3GHz Quad-Core Processor ($159.99 @ Micro Center) Motherboard: ASRock H81 Pro BTC ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($41.99 @ Newegg) Memory: Patriot Viper 3 Low Profile Blue 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($67.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($53.95 @ Amazon) Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 970 4GB Twin Frozr V Video Card ($349.99 @ NCIX US) Case: Zalman Z11 Plus ATX Mid Tower Case ($44.99 @ Micro Center) Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($49.99 @ Newegg) Total: $768.89 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2014-10-28 14:37 EDT-0400 The more expensive wallet screaming bloody murder one is: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($199.99 @ Micro Center) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($28.98 @ OutletPC) Motherboard: ASRock Z97 EXTREME4 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($104.99) Memory: Patriot Viper 3 Low Profile Blue 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($67.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($53.95 @ Amazon) Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 970 4GB Twin Frozr V Video Card ($349.99 @ NCIX US) Case: Zalman Z11 Plus ATX Mid Tower Case ($44.99 @ Micro Center) Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($49.99 @ Newegg) Total: $900.87 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2014-10-28 14:38 EDT-0400 Either build is a significant upgrade from what I'm currently rocking. Remember, I need peripherals too, so I need to set aside ~$250-$400 for those, depending on what I go for. Obviously I understand the more money I put in, the better performance I get, but my main question is... how much better? Questions: 1. For anyone that's overclocked their processor, what sort of boost to WOT framerates did you see? I'd rather save the money if I'm just going to jump from 60 to 80 or something like that, but if you can break 100 or even closer to 120, then I'm willing to break open the piggy bank. 2. Wait for Broadwell, yay or nay? I'm not too sure what the performance increase will be... and honestly, with Skylake apparently coming out soon after, I'm tempted to just snag the H81 + 4590 combo and upgrade the mobo and processor when the new architecture is released. If I pay for the more expensive stuff upfront, I need it to last longer. 3. Is wattage sufficient or do I need to spring for a 750W PSU? 4. Go for a 144hz monitor or a standard, cheaper 60hz IPS? Again, this comes down to framerates; if tanks is too demanding for my framerates to benefit I'd rather just save cash now and upgrade later. I don't really care about 144hz for other games- when I'm playing single player I can live without pixel-perfect smoothness. 5. Just out of curiosity, is either i5 strong enough for Twitch streaming at say, 720p/60fps? I'm not willing to spring for the i7 just to stream, but it'd be interesting to know. Answer any or all of the questions you can, or just review the builds, it's fine by me. Thanks in advance for assistance.
  6. I'm not quite sure what happened, but right after the 4th of July, I came back on a Saturday to the game, and although I don't recall a "9.1.1" mini-patch or anything, I suddenly went from a playable 17-20 fps range to 10-14, and I've been having trouble even loading into games. I've already tried uninstalling several old programs and emptying my Recycle Bin, but that didn't appear to have any effect. I have a 2009 Toshiba laptop with Intel "Integrated HD Graphics", and I know that I can't replace it or anything, so I tried using compressed textures; however, the installer freezes up every time at 1%, so if someone could output it to an empty folder and upload it to Mediafire, or offer me an alternative solution to make the game playable, I would greatly appreciate it. Edit: I should probably mention that I'm trying to install 12.5% textures, since that seems to be the lowest number without a significant change in game appearance.
  7. As you may have guessed from the title, I am going to be buying a new laptop soon. It will be for general use, but preferably will be able to run WoT on decent settings with good fps (realistically, anything would be an improvement, as with my current laptop I run absolute low at ~30 fps, going as low as ~10 if I'm behind a bush D:). However, I know woefully little about hardware (and I won't pretend to) so I am in need of some assistance. Although I am rather ignorant of hardware, I knew that there were a few things that I wanted: At least half a terabyte of hard drive 8gb of memory 15.6" display An intel i7 After some quick searching, I came to two laptops that generally fit the bill: the Lenovo Y510P and the Asus Q550LF. They both have 1TB hard drive, have at least 8 gigs of memory, are not too expensive, but they differ in processor and gpu. So my questions these are my questions: The Lenovo has a 4th gen i7-4700MQ and the Asus has a 4th gen i7-4500U. Is there any appreciable difference in the performance of these cards? The Lenovo has a NVIDIA GeForce GT750M (SLI) GDDR5 2GB graphics card. Is this any good? How does it compare to other graphics cards. Etc, just explain graphics cards to me. The Asus has a NVIDIA GT 745M graphics card. Is this better / worse than the Lenovo? Some other laptops I've been looking at have a dual gpu. What is a dual gpu? How does Asus stack up against Lenovo? Are my choices terrible? Do you have any suggestions for me? (nothing over ~1.5k) Thanks in advance for your advice!
