Thanks. Not too fussed about graphics settings as long as it's reasonable, but the Sims seems to need more grunt than you'd expect,...

Thinking of getting a new laptop for my wife. Main uses would be streaming Netflix etc. and a bit of light gaming (i.e. the Sims 4). Any...

Is the RAM dual channel or single channel? Also how does the IdeaPad Slim compare to OzBargain's favourite laptop, the Thinkpad E595?

> Not really a bargin [sic] Then why'd you post it on OzBarg**a**in?

OK $5 is a bit of an exaggeration, but they're available pretty much everywhere for around $10, e.g....

I bought the 960GB as a boot drive... it was a mistake. I wasn't expecting blazing fast speeds, but it was so slow I ended up going back to...

How is this better than a $5 V60?

> 6 months… That's half a year Thanks Captain obvious ;)

What's the advantage in that? Intel still holds the advantage in gaming (albeit at a price premium) and if they're ready to go with Zen 3...

I wouldn't say the 4th gen launch is imminent - most sources seem to think it'll be launched late September. Then you'll have to wait for...

I tried to buy one and I don't even have a motherboard with an M.2 slot... (for an upcoming upgrade/new build)

Damn, I added to cart then went to checkout and couldn't - cart is empty. Can't add to cart now :( Edit: yeah definitely out of stock for...

Amazon is $341.95 now :(
27/05/2020 - 12:31
Wow, right now that price would be a bargain for 2x8GB :(

I'm no expert, and I'm sure someone more qualified will correct me, but as I understand it no new copper is required. The DPU in the pit on...

> generic template that says $2000 I think you missed a zero there, if the Whirlpool spreadsheet is anything to go by: https://goo.gl/YfbdSv

Yep. There's some good stuff on Prime Video too.
25/05/2020 - 16:12
Why? It's no worse than a credit card, and far better than rent-to-own. Sure people can get into trouble with it, but you could say the...

3.423 months if you pay annually ;)

Same price at PLE as well, which may be more convenient. Also $1,211.95 delivered at Amazon, but on pre-order.

How many times will this be re-posted over the next week?

If you're buying a $200 PC, you can put up with the restrictions on the non-activated Windows ;)

I'm embarrassed to admit I actually have an emotional attachment to my 2500K. Currently running @4.5 GHz, has been an absolute workhorse...

I'm still rocking an i5 2500K! Impatiently waiting for Zen 3, but may not last that long.

Which, for those playing along at home, is "shallothead".

Better single-threaded performance, but loses some ground in multi-threaded workloads. It's also a lower TDP part, so less heat and...
