I love ThinkPads and IdeaPads but hear me out, laptops with numpads are the worst and I can’t imagine why anyone outside of accounting would want a numpad 🙃22
I am looking at replacing my Dell XPS 15 from 2019, but because I work 100% remote I am considering building a desktop developer rig instead of getting a new laptop. I have only had laptops since early 2000s, but thought it would be fun building something from scratch again. The problem is I have fallen tragically behind on everything hardware, and therefore looking for some pointers.
I don't want an RGB rainbow unit with 6 loud fans requiring a noise cancelling headset to work on. I want a top spec, stealthy thing that has all the goodies but also runs quiet. A decent graphics card that can run the latest games at a decent frame rate, but not the top of the line either.
Any tips on cases, motherboards, RAM, drives, fans and grahpics cards appreciated. The budget is roomy, comparable to a top spec Dell XPS 15 or ThinkPad X1 Extreme.12
Hello everyone I have taken a Thinkpad recently and it has ubuntu on it when I was going through it there was multiple accounts and I deleted them and came to a single account during this process I am facing a crash on my lappy when ever I set it out for sometime without using it or letting myself some rest as I know Ubuntu is an open source and I don’t want to install other OS or Windows on it. Can I fix this error crash in ubuntu.9
So I love what Apple is doing with the new Macs, great hardware, streamlined optimization, blistering performance.....great stuff.
But here's the thing. I think I'm gonna get a ThinkPad and just install fedora on it. It's far cheaper and outside of only going up to 16GB of ram it meets all my needs.
But between you and I a big factor in why I'm finding it hard to go Mac is the system settings. Like why is it like that? Why when I click something a separate window opens.....odd.6
