Best gaming laptop <$600?

No.63431229 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
I have been trying to find the best preforming laptop that fits my budget and wanted your expert opinion.
I do want something that can run modern games but don't care if I have to use low settings for playable frame rates.

In my research the Acer Aspire E 15 E5-575G-57D4 (Intel Core i5-7200U, GeForce 940MX, 8GB DDR4 SDRAM, 256GB SSD) seems like it may be the best option in my price range but I only have limited knowledge of the current laptop market so I am not sure if something is better out there for under $600 USD.


Thank you in advance for your assistance.

>get rid of router & modem

>turn off tethering whenever you're not using it
>only pay like $60/mo for your internet
>cheat the system
why doesn't this work?

I'm looking for a service or some kind of an algorithm that would allow me to get a random string/password at a given time, see it once and then not being able to see the string/password until a certian time period passes.
It would look like this:
>generate a password/string
>access it once
>don't be able to access it until a specific time period passes

So, does /g/ know of any such service?

Basically, what I would like to do with it is make a script that would change my SSID password and my router's admin password randomly and then unlock itself when a specificed time period passes, using the said service so the keys don't ever get lost, yet can't be accessed in the specified time period.

Pcbg/ get in here and bant edt.

If you want help:
>State the budget & CURRENCY for your build
>List your uses, e.g. Gaming, Video Editing, VM Work
>For monitors, include purpose (e.g., photoediting, gaming) and graphics card pairing (if applicable)

CPUs:
>NO i5 7500/7600K or i7 7700/K. THEY ARE DEFUNCT AND SUPERSEDED BY COFFEE LAKE
>G4560/G4600 for non-gaming (light tasks) or bare minimum gaming builds with a dedicated graphics card
>R3 1200 - Budget builds (best with OC + fast RAM)
>R5 1600 / i5 8400 - Great gaming or multithreaded use CPUs i5 8600k if your CHAD
>R7 / Used Xeon / Threadripper / i7 - Heavy Multi-Tasking / VM Work / Mixed use

RAM:
>Current CPUs benefit from high speed RAM; 3000-3200 MHz is ideal
>Before buying RAM for Ryzen, check your Mobo's QVL or look for user reports

GPUs:
>Consider Vega if you have a Freesync monitor
>Crypto-Currency miners have driven GPU prices up (particularly Radeon)
1080p
>GTX 1050Ti and 3GB 1060 are the only reasonably priced cards; 6GB 1060 or 4GB 580 if you want to overpay a little
>GTX 1070 if you're looking for very high (100+) framerates and you have a CPU and monitor to match
1440p
>GTX 1070/Ti and 1080 are standard choices; currently overpriced
>GTX 1080Ti if you're looking for very high (100+) framerates and you have a CPU and monitor to match
2160p (4K)
>GTX 1080Ti

General:
>PLAN YOUR BUILD AROUND YOUR MONITOR IF GAMING
>A 240GB or larger SSD is almost mandatory; consider m.2 form factor

Fucking why? Are they really too lazy to tweak their GUI to support ultra high resolution?

Why do developers hate project managers?

Is it just because we make more money than you do?

My job is to make your lives EASIER by taking care of all the administrative bullshit so you can focus all your efforts and creativity on your project.
By butting heads with me you only make shit HARDER.

I'm not the enemy, I'm your ally.
