I'm going into college and I'm in need of a laptop that is as close to 1:1 with my corsair k70 or even just something that is close to have cherry keyswitches such as the reds I'm used to.
if worse comes to worst, I wouldn't mind getting a top of the line ThinkPad.
gaming is not going to be a major priority but my load will probably consist of photoshop, multiple chrome/Firefox tab browsing, skype most of the time.
(building would cost more)

Thanks, i'd appreciate your opinions.
I've had the same mouse for 8 years. Its time to buy a new one. What specs should I aim for with a gaming mouse? is 2000 dpi a base line? 2800?
I am looking at Steam Machines. I know they are overpriced.
Is it possible to build something similar? I have a very small desk in my new apartment, and my huge gaming rig is outdated. So time to upgrade.
But I want it in the smallest tower possible to preserve room. This wil be for gaming only as my laptop is my work laptop. What term are these mini-towers found on newegg, tigerdirect, etc?
Second idea I had was to buy a laptop workstation and switch out the graphics card and use that for work and gaming.
Build a small formfactor pc. Forget the "steam machine" shit, use it as a normal media center, with "big picture" as a normal media option.
What does building a living room streaming/gaming machine have to do with Steam anyway? Just use Steam on it and be happy.
Is this a normal thing? My first smartphone an Samsung Galaxy S2 worked so perfect, there was no bugs or any annoying things at all but my Samsung Galaxy S4 and Sony Xperia would always find some way to complain when I wanted to download shit, either there is no space when there is tons of space or it's other annoying shit, My PS4 works like shit, and this isn't just my stuff, most of my friends PS4 would always also work like shit, stuff that won't download, Sometimes it won't start and many other stupid stuff, and don't dream of even asking people...

Technology has regressed drastically, mate.
We are living in a fancy Stone Age, only instead of using rocks, dumbasses (me included) shitpost on smartphones about the slightest of things.
Something as simple as a program refusing to install is a big fucking problem, like downloading programs have been a thing it what? a decade? It should fucking work by know, at least installing stuff.
Trying to create cross platform apps whitout cor Android and iOS, but Cocoa is shit.
Best tool for the trade?
Xamarin is okay, and being a .NET developer I admin the libraries are pretty robust
But consider going native. Is cross-platform really necessary? Xamarin is cool but native will always win
So I bought this computer and it's coming in a few weeks, what are your guy's opinion on it? This computer is going to be mainly used for casual gaming.

What do you guys think of this "Programmer's Competency Matrix"?
Where do you lie on the matrix?
Is it sensible?
What are your criticisms and/or suggestions for improvement?
Seriously, as somebody who considers himself to be relatively liberal, at least compared to the majority of 4chan I guess, I'd like to say:
Reddit is cancer.
Given my, admittedly limited, experience posting to popular reddit boards I have concluded that Reddit's content is controlled by industrial and political lobbyists who do not for a second believe in freedom of speech and will censor even the most low-profile, neutral content that could potentially threaten their interests.
Fuck Reddit, Reddit is cancer.
I know this may sound retarded to some of you, but are there any risks in using a USB wall plug with 5V/0.85A to charge a 5V/0.5A device? what about a 5.1V/2.3?
I'm afraid this might damage the battery in the long run, but what's the point of the USB if that can happen?
Redbull me on Goy-Sync/Freesync. I'm probably just blind but I've never paid attention to tearing in my life and I imagine it's already less prevalent with 144Hz monitors. Or is it one of those things you don't really care about until you experience it in person and then not be able to go back once you do?
actually best smartphone
Does anyone here habe any experience on using water cooling that is chilled bellow ambient bellow 0c?
Reason I ask, there's plenty of info and guides on gutting old AC units and creating evaporators dies to mount right on the cpu. What I want to do is purchase i.e 3 sli'd cards with standard water cooling blocks and put them on a chilled loop.
But there isn't much info on using liquid coolant chilled with a phasechange/single stage.
Forgot to mention, what kinda of materials would we be best for insulting a chilled water loop? I was thinking your typical nylon tubing would just be a condensation magnet. I cove give a shit if it wasn't clear and had to be wrapped wth with neoprene or whatever.
