Here's my situation. I'm self employed and I renovate homes. I generate a ton of receipts and paperwork and I'm tired of seeing it piled everywhere. I looked into building a NAS RAID 5 (or Z1) and it was quite expensive. I suppose I don't really need a NAS right now, but the option to upgrade to that in the future would be great. Mainly what I want to do is a bunch of scanning and throwing stuff out. What's my best option? The fact that I want to throw the stuff out should suggest that data security and longevity is paramount.
maybe look into ZFS and freeNAS as a secure storage solution? You'd still want to have a backup solution too and ideally back up everything offsite. Depends on how much data it ends up being. Tarsnap is one option for secure backups, it uses client side encryption which u might want if the documents contain any sensitive data about your customers or your business. The encrypted backups are then stored on AWS S3.
If you want cheap you can get an HP g7/g8 microserver and get 16 gigs of ecc ram on either and slam it with FreeNAS or XPEnology depending on your time/tecnical knowledge.
If you have money to spend and don't want any hassle at all you can go with a synology box which are easy to use and to setup the downside is the excessive price.
As for the drives and data longevity you should go WD Red but if you really want data longevity you can always use Tape drives those things last forever.
Should i get this?
On a budget, dont want to spend too much more than I need to.
Just want something for music, internet browsing, and kik/messaging apps, nothing heavy, but I want it to run very smooth, in contrast to my current Alcatel One Touch Evolve, which has a non-functioning display and severe lag.
Should I pull the trigger?
Why do chinks just copy & steal from American companies? Why can't they innovate?
Hey /g/, I'm trying to install an OS on an old netbook of mine, a Dell Vostro A90, running a corrupt Windows XP. Here's the thing. I can't get past this screen. What do?
Is there a way I can export SMS messages from an android phone plugged in to a pic?
>an android phone plugged in to a pic

post your rigs
except the rig isn't your's
I got a 2001 Dell pc that belonged to my dad and was surprised it has two old ATA IDE Seagate hard drives in it that sell for around $35 each. What good, free programs would you guys recommend that will erase everything and make them safe to sell?
>bought a Galaxy S6
What do I do with it?
Use it as the brain for a water balloon turret you will build that you will you attach to your window and allow connected internet users to your site to control, aim, and fire once per hour.
What is the best laptop size? 10.1"? 11.6"? 12.1"? 12.5" 13.3"? 14"? 15"? 15.6"? 17"?
I just bought a "used' Asus 980 ti from Amazon Warehouse for $580. Comments said it had "minor cosmetic damage". How fucked am I?
so whats /g/'s opinion on mactype? It seems like a legit solution to default shitty pixel bound ( 800x600 anyone? ) microsoft font rendering. Do you use it? If not why?
What does /g/ think about emby?
>Not having a mechanical mouse
>Not having a fun ball to play with at your desk
>Not wanting to clean lint off the rollers
>Not wanting to have a built in anti theft device, mouse is useless without a ball
Enjoy your shitty pleb tier 'optical' mouse faggots.
Is a 13 inch screen big enough for general use? Lately, I haven't seen as many 15 inch laptops in the wild as I used to.
I think 15in is hitting the wayside because people are preferring portability over screen sizes, not to mention the guts in smaller laptops have improved drastically over the last 10 years, hell, even 5.
Affordability, portability, and power in 13 in laptops or smaller.
Thank god that "netbook" shit is gone. Those were awful.
How much would you pay for an arm laptop?
I'm thinking of manufacturing one, specs would be.
32gb ssd for os and programs (possibly 64gb)
MTK6752 or another decent budget cpu.
8gb ram (if the processor supports it)
That's just the basic specs, since arm processors tend to be cheap and use barely any power, I can put my budget more towards better components, build quality, and battery life.
According to geekbench the mt6752 should perform about the same as a g3240 in multithread.
Would anyone be...
Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I wouldn't be interested at all. You're basically going to be selling crippled laptops. Good fucking luck competing against the OEMs who sell x86 laptops with 1tb hdds, 6gb of ram, and quad-core APUs for around $400.

The architectures are vastly different. You cannot compare them with a synthetic benchmark. You're obviously trolling.
