    Want to Buy Touchscreen + lightweight

    Thanks, but the idea here is hopefully to find something used that's a bit less laptop-like in terms of weight and size. My budget is half of what I'd need for a brand-new, current-gen device, and I know it. So ya.. used and fingers remaining crossed.

    Want to Buy Touchscreen + lightweight

    Ya. Gotta love extremely expensive paperweights. Thx for the finger crossing.

    Want to Buy Touchscreen + lightweight

    Ah yes. Forgot to mention: Dell will never get my business ever again. They put me through a farce and hell with their disgusting levels of "support". I encourage you to throw away that laptop, because if it ever has an issue, you'll be less frustrated with it as a paperweight than a laptop...

    No 10nm for intel desktop CPUs. Sticking with 14nm until 2022

    Intel is so screwed, karma is sweet. I've hated them a nice they literally tried to bury AMD with a monopoly. Now they're scrambling. AMD has the consoles, a far far more intelligent design and are continuing to Innovate. Intel just keeps falling further behind. "Concentrating on Mobile" to me...

    Want to Buy Touchscreen + lightweight

    So after a lot of research, I've decided to just post a WTB thread and see what's out there. Minimum/must-have: - Dell = automatic no. Never again.. - Touchscreen device (tablet or 2-in-1 or convertible or small laptop) - lightweight (under 4 lbs) - 4 threads (let's face it, duals are dead. If...

    The in-between: windows tablet suggestions?

    The miix, every surface go and every surface 4 or newer are all $500 used or more. This is seeming as hopeless as trying to fix my broken laptop. Really discouraged by the lack of choice and the (obvious to be anyway) lack of competition in this area. I'm certain people would pay 700-900 for a...

    The in-between: windows tablet suggestions?

    Probably stupid to ask, but is there any AMD at all out there in this area? Jaguar? Puma? I'd rather have a dual core 1.6 AMD APU than a quad core Intel Atom at the same frequency.

    The in-between: windows tablet suggestions?

    Fair points, all around. Pretty much for sure going for a surface style. But there is some choice even amongst those. I'm seeing things about tegra compatibility issues as well, so I guess it's got to be an Intel surface or clone with an AMD.

    The in-between: windows tablet suggestions?

    Already sent him a pm. It's a damn nice laptop at a fair price. But I'll have to weigh it against more portable options . The laptop is a 14'' + 3lbs, but I was ideally looking for something at 2lbs or less. My hands and arms cannot hold anything up for long periods, so as light as possible...

    The in-between: windows tablet suggestions?

    Sounds like a decent idea. I'll keep my eyes open. Danke I disagree about win 10 though. My Alienware has touchscreen and I have a 23 touch monitor as well, also running win 10, and I find it not bad at all. Just gotta use the text/etc slider to up the scale to 125/150% and I've had no issues...

    The in-between: windows tablet suggestions?

    Even used $300 is too low? Eek. I'm not exactly rolling in cash nowadays. Might be difficult to push that budget higher. What I'm looking to do? I want laptop functionality with even more portability. Yes, I have an Alienware 13, but it's still 6-7+ pounds, and too expensive to bring around...

    Looking for cheap 10" tablet

    Maybe try the used market? An old Nvidia Shield won't have everything super up-to-date, but it's still plenty fast for everything you're looking for. Otherwise, I'd say a good Galaxy Tab 2/3 is your best bet.

    The in-between: windows tablet suggestions?

    Even if my laptop is repaired and becomes stable, I'm still looking for a new tablet. Why? I realized I have two android tablets yet rarely use either, because for me Android just is for a phone, Facebook, phone-esque games, etc. I want a windows based PC that go out with me, still be used for...

    MSI GE62VR 7RF Apache Pro CPU reaches 100 C

    Which processor? More than one manufacturer seems to be dropping the ball big time in terms of laptop cooling. My Alienware 13 R3 hit 102c from the factory, still hits 98c after they "fixed" it. And the Alienware m15 - which was supposed to have advanced cooling features - was even worse. I...

    Unreasonable request?

    Some of you may remember my... Altercations with Dell and their awful support. In the end I was forced to give up, got super stressed out by the whole situation and set everything aside. Now, however, I do want to get my very expensive out of warranty Alienware fixed and functioning normally...

    Need help to explain this: APU vs old chipset

    I had an FM2 (A6-7600k) build with windows 10 installed, used the built-in APU to watch YouTube videos on my secondary screen beside my main one. Unfortunately the guy that sold me that board didn't tell me how flaky it was, so it completely died on me. I didn't want lose the open tabs because I...

    Team cup 2019 coming !

    Ha. Old is good? I'm game. Is there a list somewhere of what categories we need entrants for? I've got lots of old stuff and some great air coolers, but my health means I won't be swapping big ass heatsinks every other day :/ Or would it be better if I did a quick inventory of my old crap...

    Team cup 2019 coming !

    Welcome back DT. I haven't done any OCing or anything of the sort in ages, but maybe I'll give it a shot for old times sake. Don't exactly have anything modern or even great to OC though. Ha.

    Elite Dangerous?

    Hey all. I'm just getting back into ED and would like to find some people to play with. I use discord and am currently in the bubble, in imperial space, slowly relearning everything. I'm going to be up front though: my health is bad and I can't always play for very long, so this would be a...
