#1. She makes $100,000+ per year so don’t worry, she won’t feel the $1200 she spent for the Dell Inspiron 14 2-in-1.

#2. I will never side with AMD over intel or Nvidia and will actively work to cost them as many sales as I can.

#3. The Core i7 is easily the best and will give her the most longevity.

I thought there were some trolls on OCN, but this takes the cake.

First of all in the initial post you said $899 - now it's $1200? Which is it, or did you get caught up in a lie? Not like you'd ever admit it.

You actively work to cost a company sales? Seriously, what in the world kind of mentality is that? Please, for your own sake, get a hobby or do something useful with your weird hatred towards a company and spend the energy actually helping someone.

The only person I can say that would without a doubt push someone towards a company without ever considering competition is if they have their own interests involved whether it be monetarily, or they are associated with said company.

100k is relative to where someone lives, their family situation, etc. More importantly, just because they may be financially stable shouldn't mean you should push your own selfish agenda on them.

Again, not really a move a friend would make.

I hope Ryzen 3000 wipes the floor with whatever Intel has right now, enjoy all those security issues with their CPU's

The computer itself was $899

EXTENDED WARRANTY + the cost of the Bluetooth headphones she bought + tax in NYC brought it to $1200+ ( I think $1205 or something).

I don't have to lie.

Telling the unvarnished truth is far more fun.

The specific model of the computer - just so you'll know was

Microcenter:


Dell Inspiron 14 5482 14" 2-in-1 Laptop Computer - SilverIntel Core i7-8565U Processor 1.8GHz; NVIDIA GeForce MX130 2GB GDDR5; 16GB DDR4-2666 RAM; 512GB Solid State Drive

She got a discount for having the Microcenter card.


If you think I'm bad now, you should have seen me in my Best Buy days back during college where I would absolutely disparage against specific products and push what I felt was the best.

Intel, Nvidia, Apple...they've had a friend in me for decades.

Welp, back to OCN. I see it's cool to brag about giving poor purchase advice and showing a childish allegiance to companies - but it's not cool to call said user out on it.

Shame really, considering how highly I recommend Steve's benches over there. Not like I hold this against him - just thought the site's moderation wouldn't resort to such an odd favoritism.

^ That's cool though.

This conversation is now concluded

So what do you think its best? iPhone Xs Max? S10+ has better screen, better battery life, no notch although those holes aren't the best of solutions, that phone has a jack socket, you can charge your headphones by your phone and when it comes to P30 Pro it has the best camera on the market. What makes iPhone so good? How old are you? Because you act like an teenager......

PS I own a Sony Xperia XZ Premium :)

1. It's this kind of thinking that lands people in debt. Just because something is more expensive, doesn't make it better. Being more expensive isn't a point for Intel, it's a con regardless of how much money you make.

2. Well at least you've made your personal bias extremely clear here. FYI you don't have to side with a brand.

3. A useless point without the actual products to compare to

The funny part about this is I bought a laptop with similar specs (but only a 256GB HDD), 8th gen i7 CPU as well, for $500 and that includes an Nvidia MX150 which is much better then the 130 you got. 12 hour battery life to boot. Then again I typically buy laptops in the $400 - $500 price range that have better specs then the one you posted.

You'd think you'd at least know about Intel pricing given you are so gung ho Intel. You not only excluded certain products due to personal bias but you also failed to get even decent pricing. You can get that exact laptop config for $650 off sale.

More to the point, if the copyright were to grant Nvidia's request for trademark on a simple series of numbers, I think the FBI should be looking into the bank statements at everyone employed at said office.

Two things I find suspect, is that the supposed Intel CPU exploits, weren't actually "discovered", until AMD had something to offer as alternatives.

And AMD copping Nivdia's numerical sequence branding, leading to the possibility of an uninformed customer buying a Radeon product "by accident".

In the past,when AMD did have a superior product, ("a long time ago in a galaxy far away"), they also branded their product with numbers designed to compare relative performance with Intel's CPUs

And then Intel introduced the Core 2 Duo E-6300, which pretty much ended AMD's fun for a good long time..

The i7 is already obsolete due to the numerous security flaws.

They've already announced it. Next gen cards will be RX 5700 (and probably RX 5200, 5400, 5500, 5600, 5800, 5900).

If by "we" you mean either people who are ignorant of the alternatives, or people brainwashed by Microsoft.

I think he meant "we". in terms of the >75% of personal computers running it:

In the area of desktop and laptop computers, Microsoft Windows is generally above 75% in most markets, Apple's macOS at around 20%, Google's ChromeOS at about 5% and Linux at around 2%.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage_share_of_operating_systems

If you logged in with Linux, I guess that would make you special, (at least in your own mind).

That wasn't very nice was it? What the hell, you are special.

Security flaws which the average user will never notice.

Windows has had security flaws for years.

We still prefer it.
The situation is as follows: nobody cares about these security flaws on a desktop PC. That's not where you can make money. It's all about the servers, it's all about mass attacks or high profile targets.

The biggest problem is that you can get attacked just by visiting a website with injected JS scripts and it is difficult for AV software to detect such attacks.

Most websites you visit are run on an Intel server and all of them are vulnerable (including bank servers). It's also where the patches hit the hardest in terms of performance loss (I/O is very important for servers). That's also where you'll see system admins disable HT just to be sure no problems appear.

With desktops it's mostly very large corporations and governments that need to be careful.

Any chance you worked at Bestbuy in CT? When you worked at Bestbuy in NYC was it from 2004-2007 time frame?

I was at store #483 in Rego Park

They mistreated me. Didn't pay me what I deserved and gave me a hard time despite selling their warranties and aceing my customer service tests/ mystery shoppers.
