Month: July 2015

I never bought a mSATA SSD for hackintosh

That would be cheaper then a laptop. Got to get a real Apple computer, so I can upgrade OS X until it isn’t supported anymore.

Good idea, buy an Intel laptop and try to install OS X on it. I’ll go to the Apple store and have a genius do it for me.

The AMD laptop at Office Depot might be to much of a pain to change the hard drive

The Intel laptop for the same price at Best Buy would be easier. Assuming the manual isn’t lying and it’s the right manual. Skip Office Depot and go to Best Buy instead. When they try to sell me a better one, I’ll say “Ok I’ll come back in a month or two.”. Wait a month or two and buy a Mac. A MacBook will come with a SSD. No opening it required.

Why did Microsoft said me an email telling me I reserved Windows 10?

I got Windows 10 a whooping two hours early. Would of been sooner, if I knew what to do. I didn’t read the email, I don’t need to know what’s next. What’s next is it works. And my SSD might be slower or something, some programs take longer to open. That’s what I can buy, a 1 TB SSD for Windows.

960 GB is plenty, I like SanDisk, I read they have good support, so if the drive dies, it should be easy to get a replacement.

Mom didn’t want all fifty dollars

She thought I could buy something if I go somewhere with my neighbor. But you can use a card almost anywhere. No idea when I’ll take the bus with him. Probably after he gets a new bus pass. His wallet found a new home, at least that’s what he said.

I might give him a day pass if he needs it. I have five, if I can handle the bus, I’ll just get a bus pass. If you get social security, the bus pass is $22.50.

Should of kept the MacBook Pro I had

It was from 2011, but it was a nice laptop. I paid over a grand for it. That’s probably what I should do, just wait and buy a new MacBook of some sort.

I don’t really care what OS is on a laptop. I switched to Windows on my desktop for games, and to stream games to the SHIELD. To lazy to reboot all the time. So linux lives in a virtual machine now.

The LG G3 is nice when it’s fast

Apparently changing the CPU governor made it fast. It’s a good phone, but the interactive CPU governor is broken. Is the default CPU governor on the G4 broken too? Not much new on the G4, not worth upgrading to.

T-Mobile isn’t fast on the south hill at my grandma’s.

My AMD 6300 is faster then the AMD A10-8700P

At least the 1.6 GHz one. You can get a 1.8 GHz A10-8700P laptop for 399.99 at Office Depot. But only one memory slot kills the deal. No dual channel memory with only one stick.

Maybe I’ll go to Office Depot and see if they have one on display. Then I can see how slow it is.

Might buy the HP laptop anyways. Doesn’t need to be faster then my desktop, the single core score is almost the same on Geekbench. I need a laptop to put in my camera backpack, it can hold a 15″ laptop. Crap just looked my backpack up, 15.4″ only, not 15.6″. It might fit.

Yes I make rational decisions, buy a laptop because my new camera backpack can hold one. There’s nothing irrational about that. I’ll have over 200 bucks left if I buy it, after all my bills. And that’s with tax. Not sure how much after I buy more toilet paper.

The i3-5010U might score slightly better. Same price. Probably has two memory slots, it has 6 GB of RAM, same price as the AMD laptop at Office Depot. The i3-5010U laptop is at Best Buy.

There’s a Ubuntu user guide, where can I buy the Ubuntu version? And it might not be the same laptop, doesn’t list a 6 GB RAM module in the service guide. It would be two sticks, 4 GB + 2 GB.

The Intel laptop would be better for linux. The AMD video driver isn’t very good for new hardware. It might work, but don’t expect to play any games. I might try booting linux and see if most of the hardware is supported. Don’t need the touch screen to be supported on the Intel laptop. But I’m not an Intel fan boy. Probably buy the AMD one. No sales people bother me at Office Depot. Best Buy sucks for buying stuff. They will try to sell me one I can’t afford. Maybe go there and say “Ok I’ll come back in a month or two.”.

Didn’t think it was over a hundred degrees outside

Took Tonka around the back of the building, when we got back to the door, she was lifting her feet up like the pavement is to hot. No wonder people were warning me sometime ago. Next time she’s going in the yard.

Is an i5 faster then my AMD 6300?

Should be. Can’t afford an i7, that’s $340 for just one part. Maybe I should get an i3, and then replace it in a couple months with an i7. Almost 500 bucks for case, memory, motherboard, and CPU. I’d have to use the power supply I have. Already plan on using all my hard drives, and my video card. And the blu-ray drive.

Ahh crap, I might need to buy Windows too. I’m not calling them. I forgot the water cooler. But that could wait for the i7.

Intel Celeron is even cheaper, games will probably run pretty shitty though.

Think I’ll buy absolutely nothing.
