i'm a poor college student looking for a laptop so I have something to do on the weekends when I come home
I'd like to be able to play some new-ish games (low settings is good with me)
Do either of these look good? Do you know one that I could get for similar price that's better? I don't want to spend more than like ~350

Since its black Friday and I think would be a good time for me to invest in a new CPU and motherboard. However I am debating whether to get a Intel i5 or a i7.
I heard alot of back and forth on articles and videos, but I was hoping you guys can give me your input. The machine will be used for gaming, obviously.
Thanks in advance!
I know jack shit about this stuff but just from browsing Steam the last few days I can already see a lot of games recommending i7s. I imagine there will only be more in the future, so if the price jump isn't too bad I'd say go with that. I have an i5 I don't regret getting, but that was a couple years ago and on specs it's already starting to fall more on the 'minimum' side more than the 'recommended'.
I assume you're talking about Skylake or Haswell.
Comparing a quad i5 with a quad i7 in the same series, i7s are hyperthreaded and have more cache. i7s also run a bit faster.
Is it worth it? Depends on you and what games you want to play. Go look at some benchmarks.
Personally speaking I prefer HEDT line of i7s which now start from 6-core up.
Ive looked up some benchmarks and I seen that they show little difference in FPS all in the highest settings. What Id ont want is I dont want to buy a i5 and then it gets slow 2-3 years later ya know?
Seems to be no guts thread

Why does /g/ hate selfie sticks?
They're annoying, and the people who use them are even more so.
Many theme parks explicitly banned them from their parks because people kept sneaking them into roller coasters and taking selfies mid-ride.
Hi ! I got a nephew and she has a low-end laptop.I actually wanna install a Linux distro since she plays a lot of browser-based games and most of the time streaming My Little Pony.
Which OS should i install to her pc.It should be 64 bit
Core 2 Duo 2.10 ghz
6GB DDR3 RAM
(sorry bor bad english)
Well since an actual person is asking an actual question, let me answer this for you.
I think that you should install Linux for your nephew, I think that people of all ages should be learning about it.
I would probably install Ubuntu Minimal for your nephew and then you can configure everything, if not I recommend something like Ubuntu Gnome or Ubuntu Mint for starters.
If not, just install Windows.
I am building my first rig and would like to know why one would want a AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor vs a Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor. What does number of cores and data width have to do with performance? (Yes I know im a complete noob, some help would be much appreciated)
Get the 4790K
AMD basically has a different architecture where 2 cores make up a "unit" which shares a certain amount of cache (fast memory for the CPU to work with). An Intel quad-core is better than a comparable octa-core AMD in terms of absolute perfromance.

I'll start with a few obvious ones that people miss:
1. Use ethernet instead of wifi to avoid your laptop overheating (plus its always faster and more power efficient)
2. Never have auto-sync switched on on your smartphone (I don't even know why the fucking companies have this set by default)
3. If sites have free-to-read in HTML form but a paid-for PDF or EPUB, then hold your middle finger up and then print the page to PDF which usually makes it print-friendly and just as easy to read. (Don't...

Supporting Free Software is an integral part of building a good future for us and generations to come. Why? The reason is simple. Proprietary ideologies are the enemies of human progress. If we, as a species, cannot contribute to the world, then we will never advance. Transparency is paramount. How can we ensure that the biological augmentations we receive in the future function as they are supposed to without reviewing and auditing the code? Let's say you needed a pacemaker to live. It is sold by a company that has made the source code proprietary and closed. The unit you have is known to have a bug that causes it to give out at random intervals, but this was discovered after your doctor prescribed you this unit. There are no other units available. The company responsible for the production of your unit has simply stated: "We're working on it."
How is this in any way acceptable? Your life is in constant mortal danger because of the company's unwillingness to patch the bug. This would never happen if the code and hardware were released under the GPL.
Build a better future. There is no reason to support the opponents of Freedom.
Ah yes, that's right. /g/ is nothing but /v/-migrants and Winkeks now.
I want my tablet to become the ultimate ereading device. What apps or roms would you suggest to get? (Also where to get books maybe)
I want it to last long and accept any file type. The tablet will only be used to browse the web once in a while and read whatever content.
Any help would be appreciated.
