    yeah, I was losing a keyboard every month or two from splooging Baijiu on it.  There are even some old threads on here where I'm fighting with Pi and all my text turns into garbled crazy ASCII characters.  And still I kept typing and posting, because... baijiu.

    That was my argument against laptops on the other thread, it's tough to replace parts whereas on a desktop it's nothing.

    See, you splooge liquor onto your laptop keyboard and the whole machine is F-ed. I splooge onto my keyboard, and NP, I'm off to the market to buy another one for 30 kuai.

    Well I've since gone wireless with the keyboard and mouse, so more than that. But I've had this system for a year and a half and managed to not once splooge liquor on the keyboard.

    I'm quite proud of myself for that, cuz I used to do it monthly.

    you need BOTH.

    and a tablet or phone.

    i used to watch movies on laptops, then i had a desktop in the apartment connected to a large TV. Much better to watch films on 25 inch screens.

    I've got all that, cuz *my* laptop folds into a tablet Razz

    Does yours???

    I don't have the smartphone. I need one of those.

    your pseudo-laptop impersonator wannabe isn't as portable as mine.

    I'd say it's highly portable. It's a razor thin, so it's like pulling a magazine out of my bag or something.

    Are magazines portable, what do you think?

    The only thing that sucks about it is..... Windows 10.   Soooooooooo fffffkkkkknnn suckkky I can't describe it.

    And now it's saying my version of Office isn't legal.  Rolling Eyes   I guess because I have it registered on this machine.

    So I'm dealing with nag windows and this loading configuration failure bullshit every time I open Word.

    I am *not* giving Microsoft any more money!  I fucking bought my first legal version of Office ever last  year. They ought to be grateful.

    I'll be hitting the pirate sites soon to find a solution when I have time.  Well I have time now, but I'm doing this and a bunch of other fuck-all for the next few days.

    Cuz I'm on vacation. sunny

    Ok, fine.  Let's talk SPECS.  You guys' laptops *might* beat mine, but somehow I highly doubt it.

    Let me just get it out of my luggage....   Oh, *that* was easy.

    It's been sitting in there in sleep mode as cool as a cucumber since I checked into this hotel three days ago, I'm a little concerned.....

    NM.. lol it came out of sleep mode instantly, with the directions to the hotel and my check in information still on display.  Oh, and look at that, still at 3/4 battery!

    That's amazing since I was using it at both hotel lobbies, with the driver, and throughout the entire journey here.

    Ok, let me find the specs.  I don't even know them.  LOL!

    Let me see here....  Pen and Touch, Tablet, Infrared, Cooling, Intel Rapidstore...  yeah yeah those are features but where are the meaty specs?  Hold on... need to click "System."

    Oh... you might have me beat on RAM.  I've only got 6 gigs.  But I mean, come on, it's a very thin machine.  How much could it possibly pack...?

    Intel HD Graphics 520.

    i3-6 processor.  2.30Ghz.

    500 GB solid state HD.  meh.

    It wasn't the most expensive laptop out there, but I don't really use it for much.  I do the bulk of my "work" let's call it, on the NUC.

    I showed you mine, now show me yours.

    It's time to put your cards on the table, laptop boy.

    (You don't even want to know specs on my NUC cuz they would blow your fucking mind...literally.)

    My laptop is refurbished, but by Microsoft so I guess it should hold up.

    Core i5 (beats i3)
    12 gb ram (beats yours)
    graphics card is standard shit, not good enough for gaming

    also depends how much you paid. more specs = more $$

    yours is razor thin? I thought NUC was those fucking miniature desktops that were shaped like boxes.

    but still. you have to hook up the monitor every time you use it?

    sorry, would you mind giving me the amazon link for this piece of shit?

    also, you do know what NUC is actually CUN(t) backwards, right? make sure to fuck it!

    for windows replacement, there's LibreOffice which is free. I've started using the Libre Writer and it seems fine. But I'm worried about compatibility

    No.  Just f-ing use Office.  I learned my lesson last year about fucking around with Linux and Microsuck alternatives.

    And for the single LAST time, I own both a NUC *and* a laptop.  I was pitting laptops only just to be fair.

    The NUC has 32 gigs of RAM, so just STFU about that.

    Your laptop beats mine on RAM and processor, congrats.  Go pat yourself on the head for about a year. Rolling Eyes

    I went cheaper on the laptop, cuz I knew I wouldn't be using it for much.  The NUC is my go to.

    But does your laptop have touchscreen?  Tablet mode?  Coolsense technology that allows it to sleep for days without losing any battery power?

    Probably pretty decent, but I think you're fucking lying.  Before you said it was a refurbished Dell, now you say it's a Surface Pro.  Make up your f-ing mind, LIAR!

    I'll check the graphics again if you want.  Probably got you beat there too.  

    But seriously, congratulations on the RAM and CPU -if anything you say can be believed.  Suspect  

    And you know exactly where you can "ram" your little victory? Straight up your CPU! Shocked

    LOL.  If it's a Surface Pro, you must be running on Windows 8.  

    Hanging out in cafes with a Surface Pro on Windows 8 in 2016.  lol!

    What a retro douchebag hipster asshole!

    Shit, maybe I should get a fucking NUC too then.

    No, Windows 7. No touchscreen. I'm behind the times for sure. But newer tech isn't always better. A lot of people hate Windows 10. And Windows 10 is spyware. And it's still a fucking beta that will be modified drastically because it's the last version of Windows ever.

    So fuck you.

    I've got this! I've got that! No you haven't! Mine's better than yours!

    The faggie geek wars continue.

    I don't even know what I have.

    I know it was a mistake fucking changing the last one.

    And there is no way I am getting the next one.

    So, I guess Pi is right.

    I refused 10, if that is the last one.

    So I must have 8 or 9.

    There is no Windows 9.

    I wonder if there's a conspiracy about that...
