I'm in the market for a laptop, but I'm not sure if I can get away with meeting all my criteria.

- It'll be purely for business, the most demanding thing it will be opening is numerous Chrome tabs.
- It needs to run Windows software, with MS Office.
- I want it to be lightweight and no bigger than an A4 pad.

Is there any chance of me getting this for around £200?

I've been seeing refurbished X series Thinkpads from as little as £100, but maybe this is dodgy?

Do you lads know of something better?

Hey lads, I'm in a similar position to OP but have procrastinated on a decision for about a year now. It's just so bloody difficult to make a choice on what you want when it comes to a new best friend. I was looking at a V-series the other-day but upon closer inspection I suspect the build-quality is absolute toffee:

My criteria has shifted around but generally:
>Budget is £500-£1000 depending on what it can do
>Weight isn't a problem, this is going to be an effective desktop/tv due to lack of space in the flat
>Something sturdy that will last me years and years if anything
>My benchmark was finally getting to play GTA V but a laptop able to play it in decent quality appears still out of reach

I really should make a choice now as my current laptop is starting to BSD more and more.

Not any more. At the low end of your budget, a machine with a Ryzen 5 2500U will run GTA V on medium settings at 720p at about 50fps, while still being reasonably portable. At the high end of your price range, you could have something with an i5 and a GTX 1650, which will give you decent frame rates at 1080p on very high settings.

Your budget will definitely stretch to something GTAV-capable, my laptop runs that and it's only worth ~£500. I picked an Inspiron 15 7577, which doesn't look like the usual "gamer laptop" with rainbow LED and go-faster plastic tacky embarrassment. By all accounts it has a quiet cooling system by gaming laptop standards, but it's still too loud for me when it gets going. When a game like GTAV is running you'd better have headphones or some way of moving the thing into an adjacent room.

Can you really not squeeze in a decent desktop? And then grab a second-hand chromebook or something dirt cheap for when you're out and about? Gaming laptops are inherently a significant compromise, don't go there unless you really have to.

I recently watched that Ray Charles biopic with Jamie Fox, and I enjoyed it so much that I got inspired to compose some music the next day and obtain his entire discography. Much to my chagrin, I realised that 90% of his songs are about meeting women, relationships with women, women leaving him, him leaving women, anything along those lines, etc.

Do people in regular society genuinely enjoy listening to songs about these topics? When they hear something like "baaaaaaabbbby yooouuuu leffffft meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" does it really send shivers down their spines? I personally can't think of anything more boring than writing a song about love, romance, or relationships.

I'm not entirely convinced by this argument. My music collection includes plenty of pop music from all eras and the lyrical content is largely irrelevant to my enjoyment of it. It just sounds good.

I think the tendency of songwriters to write about love is kind of a crutch to meet the aim of making the music widely accessible, easy to remember and easy to sing along to. Bear in mind that a lot of it is written by someone other than the person singing it, with the goal of making money rather than conveying a meaningful idea in an artistic format.

I've got an idea one of the parties can suggest to buy votes.

How about instead of giving NHS and police etc a pay rise, how about just stop taxing them. I mean if you work in the public sector your money comes out of the government's pocket anyway, so isn't it a waste of time and effort to tax them?

I'm sure with the way our modern economic monopoly money and government debt etc works, the government could get away with doing that essentially for free.

/boo/4831 Aliens
The Area 51 thing was a massive wet fart, but it got me nostalgic for the old days where it wasn't all about chemtrails, Jews being behind 9/11, and flat-earth nonsense. Back then it was believable, grounded stuff like flying saucers and men in black. So let's talk about aliens.

Do you believe in aliens? Do you believe we are visited by aliens? Have you ever seen or encountered any aliens? Does the government know about aliens but cover it up? Did aliens visit and influence our ancestors in the past? Are aliens friendly, benign, or threatening?

Aliens are a very compelling subject. Why is the classic description of a grey so fundamentally creepy? Why have aliens and the things that surround them, UFOs, men in black, become such an ingrained part of modern folklore? Why have they fallen into the background in modern times, to be replaced with anti-intellectual/anti-science conspiracy theories for home schooling bible-bashing wierdos? Is this paradigm shift representative of the cultural era we have moved into?

>and they wouldn't be some sinister uniform civilisation but lots of divergent personalities with mundane objectives.

I don't know about that. I know it's a very Sci-Fi thing to say, but they could all share a consciousness or be the last surviving community on a planet that worships a cult like figure obsessed with blue planets or anything really. You're probably right that they need to be curious and social, but even then, I don't think it's impossible to end up with some sort of intelligent fungus with legs that just wants to eat every tree they can find.

Fermi's paradox ensures that there are others out there but first the distances could be too big, especially if there is no warp drive and everyone is limited to lightspeed.

Second, the universe is not Sid Meier's Civilization, not everyone spawned at the same time. Human civilization started 20.000 years ago, but we started acting as civilized, technological people only in the last 150 years. There is a good chance that if we met the Aliens they would be as incomprehensible to us as a network engineer with a bionic hand would be incomprehensible to an ancient Egyptian farmer.

If we were visited by intelligent life, I think they would harvest the resources of our planet and subjugate us. Much like in the past when humans with superior technology met those who were primitive (see the new world).

I've never really spoken about this to anyone before, I'm not 100% saying it was an alien or anything but I think this is the right place to tell this story.

In 2013 I fucked up a quite important exam and needed to get away for a few days. A mate of mine was going down to Cornwall camping with some hippie friends of his and I agreed to tag along. There was a big permanent Ghegnis Khan style tent at the campsite with a stove in it etc and we basically would just sit up all night in there drinking and chatting or (when it wasn't raining) we would do like a fire outside.

On the last night before we went home we ran out of firewood and so I went over to the next campsite over to borrow some wood. We'd spoken to the people who were staying there quite a bit and knew they wouldn't mind. There were these long holes in the ground between the campsites and it was really dark so I can't really say for sure but Worf was there.

>Drag queens banned from performing at Free Pride Glasgow event over fears acts will offend trans people


>The organisation said in a statement that it hopes to create a safe space for all members of the LGBTQIA+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, asexual) community, and that while the decision may "disappoint" some people "the needs of the most marginalised groups within our community come first."


>Free Pride Glasgow said: “It was felt that it [drag performance] would make some of those who were transgender or questioning their gender uncomfortable. It was felt by the group within the Trans/Non Binary Caucus that some drag performance, particularly cis drag, hinges on the social view of gender and making it into a joke, however transgender individuals do not feel as though their gender identity is a joke.”

Life rarely takes the piss out of itself like this. It almost sounds like the plot of a South Park episode.

You're not wrong, in that people should still have the right to disagree with conventional wisdom. On the one hand, with sex and gender in particular, there really is more than one way of looking at it, not in the least because transsexuality itself is still not fully understood even by the world's most renowned experts.

But on the other hand also because as you implied, what's "right" and what's "wrong" can change with society's swinging pendulum. And also, if we say that simply having a disagreeing opinion hurts people like transsexuals, then that just isn't worthy of a democratic society. At the very least, a difference in magnitude should still be observed between someone simply stating opinion that transwomen aren't women, and somebody maybe actively harrassing a transperson in the street and calling them names and beating them up. Without that kind of scope, one side's opinion and its proponents can easily become totalitarian.

Whites can be black if they wish, says lecturers' union

People should be allowed to identify as black no matter what colour they are born, a lecturers' union has said.

The University and College Union (UCU), which represents more than 100,000 university lecturers and staff, set out its position on whether people should be able to self-identify as different races or genders. In the paper "UCU Position on Trans Inclusion", it stated: "The UCU has a long history of enabling members to self-identify, whether that is being black, disabled, LGBT or women."

A spokesman for the UCU said: "Self-identification is a standard practice in many organisations and the Office for National Statistics says 'there is no consensus on what constitutes an ethnic group and membership is something that is selfdefined'."

I'll really miss it. It kind of felt like an international version of this place. Just cosy discussions without any boring shitposts and memes.

Kohlchan has now emerged as the successor but it's just KC 2.0 with all of the same problems.

I guess I should find better things to do than waste time on imageboards.

I know I'm replying to fucking old posts, but I think this really presents just what a plague 4chan and /pol/ are. People have been going to Krautchan for years, but in the last few years or so it's become truly unbearable, like so many other places.

/101/28571 Minor Rants and Piss-Offs, Mark VIII
It appears largethreadmodlad has also locked the previous iteration of this thread; Mark VIII it is, then.

I take perfect care of my nails. I don't bite them, I cut in the standard flat formation every 3-5 days, and scrub under them in the shower. So why the actual fuck are my cuticles bleeding? Putting the plaster over to catch the blood means I can't play my bass properly, and that pisses me off.

I too was set on buying a second hand one from eBay, but then convinced myself I need freesync. Then Amazon worked their magic and a voucher popped up so I went with a new one.

If it makes you feel any better, I've only just realised I'll probably need to buy a new graphics card if I actually want to play games at 1440p ultrawide, and that will definitely be a battered, probably ex-miner 1080/1080ti.

Speaking of monitors, is it normal for the edges of a white background to have the appearance of having a slightly darker shadowing, with the shadowing disappearing if you move your head so you're directly in front of it? I bought the cheapest 27" IPS 1440p monitor I could find and I'm not sure if I'm only noticing it because of the size of the screen. My old 24" 1080p does the same thing but I guess I eventually got used to it and didn't find it as noticeable because of its smaller size.

I think that sounds normal, that just sounds like you reaching the limits of the viewing angle of the screen. Although IPS monitors have far better viewing angles than most other panel types, you'll still see minor shifts if you're not more or less looking at it head on.

I think that's what you mean, anyway.

Me again, if it makes you feel any better I've had a change of heart and cancelled the huge 49 inch ultrawide because I really don't have that much space, or need to spend that much, and also I accidentally won a curved 34" samsung on ebay for £260. No freesync but I'm not even sure I'll notice.

So am I the only one who is getting a bit annoyed by this whole Greta Thunberg cult, or am I just too much of a cold hearted cynic that the world would be better off without?

I don't doubt the legitimate concern of her generation over climate change, after all it will fall to them to sort out the utter fucking mess that we have left the planet in, but all the awards that she is now being showered with are IMO just middle aged and old people's guilt over their own failure to save the planet's climate despite having had decades of prior warning, and who lost their way and succumbed to high carbon footprint consumerism somewhere between 1990s road protest villages and today's school runs in a 4x4. None of it feels sincere or genuine, it's more like, yeah, just take all these awards and shut the hell up already.

And parents whose children now protest every Friday or so are now engaging in pissing matches on twitter and Instagram to show off which one of their kids gets the most involved. As one commenter said, nothing good has ever come of a youth protest movement that was applauded by parents.

Nuclear has the lowest death rate per TWh of any energy source, including renewables.

Also coal is a bit radioactive, so a coal power plant emits more radiation than a nuclear power plant.

>A homeless man who stole a purse and a phone from victims of the Manchester Arena attack has admitted theft.

>Chris Parker, 33, was initially dubbed a hero after claiming he comforted a seriously injured girl. CCTV footage played to Manchester Crown Court showed him wandering between stricken victims. He kept returning to injured Pauline Healey, whose granddaughter lay dying nearby, before leaning over her and taking her handbag to steal her purse.

I don't get why bleeding heart do-gooders bleat on about the homeless. They're all scratters who are on the streets through choice, usually because they choose not to stay in a hostel as they know they wouldn't be allowed to do drugs there.

That's all well and good, but the overwhelming majority of homeless people placed in temporary accommodation are the 'hidden homeless' who have been priced out of where they live.

Oh, well. At least we're not Americans.

/emo/23560 Minor angst and existential dread, Mk. I
We tend to have a lot of repeated threads here, but I also get the feeling people don't tend to post in /emo/ unless it's a big issue.

With this in mind I suggest that we have a thread for stuff that's got you down a bit and you need to get off your chest, without it being major enough to make an entire thread devoted to it. We can also use it as a go-to for minor relationship advice, work problems, social drama, and things like that.

Everyone gets down from time to time, let's put some Sisters of Mercy on and wallow together for a while.

Against 'God', or whatever those feelings are in your heart - guilt, doubt and disapointment mingled with pleasure, freedom and indulgence. Essentially doing what you know (or at least suspect) to be wrong. Continuing to eat dispite a full stomach, staying up way past the time you realised you're tired. I know these are'nt 'evil' in the sense of the term, but it's a dis-service to yourself. Maybe sin is a better word - i don't know.

I fancy that my problem has something to do with a lack of dicipline.

It's just videogames, you know? I've found something that can help me enjoy spending more time alone in my room, just at the time i'm coming to realise staying alone is actually soul destroying and not producing what i want in life.

I need to cut out all the shit in my life that's wasting time - actually build some character and develop a personality. Then anything that happens to come by will be genuine whether it's a cock in the arse or not.

I've been stuck inside for too long - i need to get out for some fresh air. It doesn't address the issue but it definitely cuts back the feedback loop.

That would definitely be appriciated.

There's nothing evil or sinful about sex itself in that context then. Wasting your time pursuing it at the cost of other things that make you feel fulfilled maybe but from the sound of it computer games are far more "evil" by your meaning of the word than your pursuit of sex is.
