New Laptop For Me :D

10 November 2013 - 12:58 AM

  Hey guys I know I don't post a lot on here anymore but I would still like some advice from a community. I'm looking for a new laptop, mostly for multimedia and gaming, and one that doesn't look half bad either. Games that I would like to run at fairly decent settings include, Minecraft, Guild Wars 2, Skyrim, and for the more demanding games, BF3/4, Crysis 3, and possibly Metro. My price range is a bit tight for what I'm looking for, I would like something under $1000. I've looked at lots of laptops from Hp, Asus, Acer, and Toshiba but nothing stuck with me. Until I looked at Lenovo. The Lenovo Y510p for $949 (after online discounts from their website) comes with a 1920x1080 hd screen, 4th gen intel core i7 4700mq, Nvidia Gt750m, 1TB 5400rpm hard drive, and a 24gb ssd cache. Now I really fell in love with it when I heard that it has the ultrabay which I can add a second gt750m, or other accessories later. I've heard lots of mixed reports about Lenovo ranging from Customer Service, Marketing Products incorrectly, and a few other things. 

  So basically I'm asking you guys if there is anything out there that I can get for better at that price point that has more stability in reports from the company and their procucts while providing the same level of performance that the Lenovo has.  I was planning on buying a second Gt750m soon after to improve gaming performance on games that really demand it like BF3 and Crysis 3. I was also wondering if it was worth an extra $50 for the 24gb ssd cache. Oh and the backlit keyboard is another big plus on the Lenovo.

 

Thanks guys!

My Return, Paintball Lesson, and Lots of Text

08 August 2013 - 12:18 PM

 Hello everyone, maybe some of you have noticed but I took a hiatus from this forum and from paintball (hardly anybody plays where I live). But I am hopefully back around for awhile and I wanted to come back with a bit of advice. It doesn't matter if you are a veteran or a newbie, this rule applies to anyone.

 

  Back about a year ago I stumbled across a red Dye DM7 with an Empire Prophecy v1 loader. The ad said that he wanted to trade instead of sell for cash. I emailed him about a cash offer and he said $150. Immediately I had to pounce on this amazing deal when I had the chance. I talked to my dad about it but he said I didn't need a new gun because I already had one (98 custom) and that I would just be wasting my money. Persuading him that paintball was the only sport that I played and that I could resell the dm7 for double that if I wanted to, I found myself setting up a time to meet him. My dad was nervous that I would get burned because he didn't think that I was "equipped" enough to fix it if it had any problems. The time came to meet the seller and he was all the way across town. Bringing my own paint to test shoot it, he got a C02 tank from the mechanic shop where they had just got back from a day of paintball. I told him that I felt more comfortable with an Hpa tank instead of C02 because it's not good for the DM. He got an Hpa with about 1,000 psi left in it and aired it up. I turned on the Dm and I should have picked this up right away but the led light was very dim and it was on a cloudy day. I started shooting it and noticed how much kick it had, I thought that he must not have the lpr set up right which is bonus for me because I can talk him down a bit maybe. When I began to walk the trigger there was some serious drop off to the point where it wouldn't shoot and then it sounded like it was airing up a few seconds later. I tried it again and it did the same thing so he got an allen key out of the shop to adjust the regulators. I told him which regulator was which because it didn't look like he knew. He started to adjust the lpr but it didn't make a difference. I told him that I would have to pass on the offer and to email me when he got it working right. 

 

  About an hour later I was kicking myself because I was literally touching the best deal of a lifetime. I emailed him when I got home and told him how to adjust the regulators. He said that he went back into the shop after I left and noticed that the lights were dim, he replaced the battery in it and shot it. He said it shot just like it did a few days ago. He also said that he sent it to a guy to get the regulators readjusted. Weeks passed by and I kept emailing him but I never got a response back. Where I live there are only a select few electronic guns and most of them are ions, let alone an underpriced DM7 with an Empire Prophecy. So kids, adults, (seniors perhaps lol?) always check the battery first because you could miss out on a deal of a lifetime like I did. 

 

 

 

 

TLDR: I'm back and check your battery before you fix something on your gun, it could be the cause of your problems. 


Laptop For My Dad

30 May 2013 - 12:18 PM

I'm looking for a laptop for my dad. All he uses it for is light Internet browsing (kijiji, real estate etc.) and watching tv show online. The computer he uses now is an hp running XP, 504 mb of ram and, a pentium 4 processor (outdated I know lol). Basically he wants to be able to lay back on the couch and watch his shows while having a good screen ( the monitor we have now is really dark and not very good quality) and he wants some light Internet browsing. I was thinking in the the $200-$300 range but I haven't found anything yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated as its for his birthday/father's day.

Your favourite song right now.
