ATTN Fur of Fur, PORNO STAR & OTHERS - NEW LAPTOP
« on: September 13, 2015, 03:16:54 PM »

The MSI laptop (that I loved, thx again) that Furry suggested in ~2012 has died :(

The aforementioned laptop: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152270

Let's start with under $1000 for now.

I hate laptops for gaming. If you are up for it here is a decent PC build you can make for $748 without including monitor. Hell, you might even be able to bump up graphics quality with a slightly more expensive card and still be under 1k.

I don't want a laptop for gaming. But I do want a laptop, not a desktop.

How does your laptop die?

Pretty sure my mobo fried. I had a warranty thingy with Directv where they would fix or replace for free but they sent it back saying it was either water damage or it was dropped and they don't replace for those reasons but I'm pretty sure neither of those things happened to it. Time for a new laptop anyway. Find me a laptop.

Lenovo ThinkPad T450s

Is that one of those small, business ultrabook things? If so, I don't want one of those. Consult the link I posted earlier. Want something like that but updated for 2015.

I prefer not to get a refurbished laptop, I know some people swear by them but I have read a lot of reviews.

I got the Lenovo Y50 with an SSD about a year ago.  I've really liked it.  I think it's around 1000$ but hopefully there's a newer model.

does urs have the i7 4710 processor? i don't know much about laptops but i always check benchmarks before buying parts for my pc. it seems that the processor that comes with that refurbished laptop has decent results.

i7-4700HQ

most reviews claim that there is very little difference between that and the 4710, but I think the 4710 is much pricier (could be wrong nowadays).

If you're not gaming or doing anything fancy on the computer why not just buy a stock one somewhere? Or at least lower your budget. $1000 is a lot to spend on a computer that you probably will never take full advantage of. Some people on these forums are going 2 be trying to find u great value deals on bad ass processors etc but I am guessing with your computer habits you will never take advantage of a bad ass processor etc so you will be overpaying.

Yeah not really much difference between the two.

That's true Wir.  Although I'm not trying to find you a great deal, I just chose something that worked for me.  I think the y50 is geared towards gaming and might be more than you'll need.  It is an idea though.

Thrill/Cubs yea, here was my post from 2011 asking for people to find me a laptop:

I heard laptops r mad cheap these days. Am looking for a cheap name brand liptip (like dell or some shit). What's the cheap decent laptop every one is buying these days? That's what I want.

So ya I want it to be cheap but up to date. All I do on the puter is email, browse the web and listen / watch music / videos so outside of whatever hardware / software is required to be able to do that, I don't need any other kinda super high tech upgraded shit else where. I'm not a gamer but I would like the liptip to be able to run Starcraft 2 or some thing like that in case I ever get board enough to get a game like that.

Your link suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Then eventually furry linked me to a bunch of laptops with a bunch of different price points. Then in game I had long talk with furry and pornstar and we decided on the MSI laptop for $700 (there was a rebate though). And I was happy for 4 years.

I want that to happen again!

Edit: I did end up getting Starcraft 2 and it ran fine on the MSI laptop. 

Thrill, isn't the MSI laptop I ended up going with 4 years ago a stock laptop?
