I really need your help seriously. I need to buy a new laptop but I havent decided yet.
Im going to use it for:
A lot of stuff from Adobe (ilustrator, photoshop)
I still havent decided yet between these two because i quite dont understand the specifications. Im mentioning the Lenovo because Im quite a gamer and having a laptop that perfoms games like these one is cool, though I dont know how is going to perform for the stuff that i mention. And the Macbook pro is here because I know its good for the stuff i want, but sadly there arent many games for Mac.
If someone can help me to choose with a good argument any of these two, Ill be grateful. This is serious please!
Are you clumsy and like to stare at the computer instead of using it? Mac by far. Do you like actually getting things done with above average hardware? y50. Keep in mind the y50's dedicated gpu is more powerful than the xbone.
Don't forget to calculate the home owner's insurance and life insurance if you buy a mac.
This is the one i'm using: $940 for i7 and $875 for i5
with 10% off coupon code: EUROCOM-GLJ-M410-150228
It has the same specs as the y50 except with a smaller, much better screen.
Forget the videos. Just need to use it for Ilustrator, Photoshop and that.
Still, if I dont choose a mac without hesitation its because the possibility of having a gaming laptop its tempting me a lot. Tell me your opinion.
apple are throttling the cpus in macbooks so they don't overheat
putting muh design over performance
but honestly most mac faggots don't do more than browse facebook and write their shitty novellas so they wouldn't notice
I would agree about the mac part, but with the PC part I'd recommend looking around more. The Asus Zenbook, Dell XPS 15 and Samsung Ativ Book 9 could also be good choices over a Mac.
Y50 series has a shit keyboard.
Trackpad is also clickpad dogshit.
Just don't, It will play the lastest games at decent settings at high framerates but the build quality is just just horrible and the battery life will suck ass.
Is a Chromebook running loonix a good choice for a CS class at a community college? I just want an associates in CS just so I can get a job repairing computers at shitty shops and not have to struggle to get employed and beg them to take my word for it that I know what I am doing, I need something cheap to get me through it. I only fear them wanting me to have Windows for some god damn reason.
>Buy lelnovo-branded laptop (thinkpads do not count here as they never had Superfish)
>Backup OEM certificate(xrm-ms) and key.
>Install clean Windows 7/8 edition (unless if the laptop came with 8 single language)
>Restore certificate+key to preserve activation
Don't get a Chromebook to run linux. Been there, done that. Way more trouble than its worth to have an laptop with bad build quality and a retarded keyboard. If you specifically need a very cheap laptop with very good battery life, it is worth it. Otherwise, old thinkpad.
I really don't want to carry around something heavy, but I might just have to use an old as shit and heavy laptop where I am going. I am so going to mugged on the way to or from the campus.
K I'm going now but I have a Y510p and I can say for a fact that the Y series has shit build shit keyboards shit trackpads shit cooling and shit battery life, buy only if you want to play games and are on a budget.
The one with the 30 year old filesystem duct taped to the kernel just like every other sloppily implemented and slow features it offers.
But keep crying yourself to sleep and telling you aren't a retard for buying a piece of shit $500 computer with a $1500 fruit logo on the lid.
Not OP but I don't want to create another "help me choose a laptop" thread. Please excuse me, OP.
So I've got about 1300 bucks to spend on a new laptop. I was planning on getting a Macbook Air. I heard that they were nicer than the Pros anyway but apparently that's compared to the non-retina Pros. Everyone seems to cum when you mention rMBP so I was considering one of them since the base model is 1300 dollars though it only has a 128GB SSD. If I go for the Air I can get 8 gigs of RAM and a 256 GB SSD for the same price.
What would you recommend, denizens of /g/? The Air or the Pro? Honestly I won't be doing a whole hell of a lot with it that's really taxing so the Air should be just fine. I'm only wondering about the Pro since the base model is so close in price to the Air I plan to get anyway. 128GB SSD just seems a bit small though, and I can't stretch an extra 100 dollars to upgrade the rMBP SSD at the moment; I'd have to wait a bit longer and my current laptop is literally falling apart now, I'm not sure how much longer it'll hold out.
Also, how long does it usually take for them to build custom orders?
>not getting an actual premium laptop that isn't made from tin cans
Like I said, not too much. Browsing, video viewing on occasion, emulate games that would run on an old toaster (and occasionally a PSX game or something).
What's this about new ones? Do we actually know when they're coming now? I've been hearing rumors for awhile now but nothing concrete. If the rumors are true, I've no interest in the 12 inch Air.
That's what I was thinking; I was worried about them entirely replacing them when the 12 inches came out. Not like I couldn't get one from Amazon or something but I wouldn't be able to upgrade it. Think I will just go for an Air, it's all I really need.
>I used to bash Apple mindlessly too.
>mindlessly bashing anything with no reason
Good to know you were a moron then and are a bigger moron now.
Apple is a literal cancer upon the industry and so are their products. All bashing here has been justified. Where do you think you are, a technology enthusiast board or MacRumors?
>coming from the retard that admits to mindlessly bashing things to be cool
Nice cop out retard. Bashing things mindlessly and turning around and mindlessly supporting it doesn't make you anything other than a tool.
>tfw got edu address but they hide the OSes behind a "college" wall where you have to prove you are enrolled in a computer science related course to get them
>the server OSes are available to all EDU email holders
>download legit Sever 2012
>convert to workstation
More assuring than using DAZ. A bit cumbersome, but knowing it's legit and clean is a good feeling.
I have a lenovo y50 and it is superior to a rMBP in pretty much every way with two major exceptions.
Incredibly shit battery life. Like 90 minutes with optimus disabled. Even if you switch off the nvidia you wont be going untethered for more than 4 hours at a time.
Disgusting pig shit terrible aspect ratio of 16:9. Seriously, this pencil shaped display will want to make you vomit every time you look at it. The macbook will have a glorious 16:10 screen that you will actually have room to work on. Holy shit is it hard to work with. You can't hardly fit ANYTHING on the screen.
I would personally reccommend getting the UHD touchscreen option since the 1080p version is apparently relatively low quality according to reviews and touchscreens are hard to switch away from once you get used to them, even on a non-tablet. Do not that you will not be able to game at 4k with hardly anything at 4k and you will be locked at 48hz even with lower resolutions. If you you think 4k is overkill, get the HP omen instead. If you have any other questions I'll stick around for a few minutes.
Who said he mindlessly supports Apple? There are completely valid reasons to own a Mac, you'd know this if you ever left your mom's basement and stopped watching your vietnamese cartoons.
>Calling him an idiot for being stupid as a teenager.
Teenagers do stupid things? Stop the fucking presses. Not even that guy but no one here ever mentioned mindlessly supporting them. Just because you like certain things about a company or its products doesn't mean you support them, or support them completely. As an example I quite enjoy quite a slew of Nintendo games, even more than ever now since they still make actual video games (something that's becoming more and more scarce) but hate the company itself. Yes I know, it seems complicated and weird that a person doesn't completely hate or completely love something but hey it happens. Someday you may even experience it yourself.
>There are completely valid reasons to own a Mac
None of which matter to the OP who wants an all-purpose machine for school, video editing, and games. So why don't you fuck off 4chan and shill elsewhere.
Could always get the 256 GB SSD model from the education store for 1400 dollars, apparently they never check if you're a really a student or not online. Not sure what'd happen if they caught you in a lie while you were asking for tech support. You might need to pay the difference before you get help or you may get none at all.
