Why do people in STEM careers use thinkpads?
Im on a mechanical/electrical engineering career and pretty much everyone has thinkpads, im the only one with a macbook.
Not only that but pretty much everyone on social science has macbooks and people on medicine/biology/chemistry stuff use only tablets or netbooks.
Hey /g/ I built this: thehivemind.online
What do you think?
Ultrabooks general thread for purposes of using the sleek designs, light weight, and durable design (hopefully).
Relatively new to making these general threads, so be nice.
Interested in getting the XPS15, although Dell's quality control is shit.
Should I buy refurbished, or should I buy directly from Dell? I've checked online, and there is opposing opinions on the topic because apparently the quality control of the refurbished are better because they receive a better "inspection" (?)
Buy a refurbished Latitude 7470. They're already on Dell's outlet site. It got an 89% from NotebookCheck. Don't even fuck with the XPS's issues. From subpar battery life, warm temps, and uncontrollable screen brightness, it's just not worth it.
Hell the fuck nah we don't need yet another general on this fucking board eat shit and die kill yourself pls kthxbai
How should I do this? Where should the hot and cold air go?
The CPU fan blows upward, and the GPU fans blow toward the side, over the motherboard.
If OP was a method in C, which would he be?
Get it, because fgets sounds like faggot
If Richard Stallman is about being free why did he want to make an operating system when its purpose is to stop programs from stepping out of line?
If they're making fun of the judge, I get it
If they're making fun of the lawyer for not being the person who came up with the acronym himself, they're fucking retarded and deserve all the cia/fbi/etc surveillance up their asses
Surely we are screwed
I honestly think that Gnome is far way better than kde, the scaling, the design, the human guidelines, it's perfect, and a lot of people have told me in the past that i'm wrong, so, why is kde superior?
Who here /forciblystoppedwindows10/ after it tried installing itself with no permission after months of clicking the X every time it came up?
I didn't know :(
Had to get a program called Never10 to stop it because I couldn't figure out how and it was 10 minutes from forcing itself upon me, apparently there was a fuck load of win10 files all over
How do I know if my GPU is fried? I've been using my card only for 6 months, brand new, and suddenly my pc restarted while playing a game and there are blue pixel lines on the screen and can't start any game now. PC recognizes the card but says it stopped working, reinstalled drivers several times and still the same. Is it ded?
Probably, some GPUs just come from the fav with hardware issues, I have a HD7950 that suddenly stopped working without showing any artifact nor any anomaly, yet I have a 9600GT that still works to this day without issues.
Just fill for a RMA.
Nvidia using the exact same fucking graph.
How is Nvidia in anyway better than AMD?
>inb4 I know this graph doesn't proof it
What are the top android phones that aren't fucking gigantic? I've been using an original Moto X for the past couple years, but it's shitting out and I'm looking for the next best thing. Why is every new phone over 5 inches?
The Nexus 5x looks promising but it's still considerably larger than the phone I have now.
Why do you want a phone under five inches? There are options out there for you, but before I go into that I'm curious what the problem is.
Even if you have manlet hands there are great usability (read: disability) tweaks that will let you, for instance, scrunch the display or keyboard into a reachable position.
why are u still not using this?

Holy shit, I have a fan that looks exactly like that one but it has different branding on it. I had the exact same experience. It got loud as fuck, so I tore it apart and found a bunch of hair and shit in it. Then I put it back together and it got even louder.
