No I didn't charge it like that — I use it always plugged in and I went to turn it off for the night and that's when I noticed the lid didn't shut and then immediately noticed it bulging and unplugged and removed it out of the laptop that same hour. Damage was already done though — it broke a few of the screw mount points off as well.

So you're extra lucky!


@ZizzyDizzyMC
One question: how long was the battery in that state? Did you ever charge it looking like that?


Biggest gripe is no cd drive and no 2.5" bay internally.

That is a problem I have with these newer machines; no optical media. There is some instances where I want that still and I think they shouldn't be entirely phased out (same for headphone jacks, etc) Then again I still use floppy disks so perhaps I am just old fashioned.

My issue wasn't with the maintenance
Epic prank and then asking for cash
Probably does more harm than good, even if people know it'll be used for the site directly

I had doubts anyone would throw me cash, so I decided to go the meme route. Who doesn't like batteries that look like flat bread? I figured all of the posts about how FUCKED this thing was would just get some laughs if anything. I only made a passing mention of the cash, it's already been covered by two friends that are way too nice to me. If I actually got anything it'd be divided between the two. Understandable how some folks might take that the wrong way though.

You sure got me panicked for a second there.

>Laptops.
Dude, you deserve a new laptop. That thing looks more wrecked then my worst laptop that can't even hold its monitor up anymore without me resting it on a box. This seems like me. LOL. I use stuff until it breaks, and then use it some more every laptop I've ever owned still boots somehow…

>Settled on a Dell G15 Ryzen with a 3060, it's $1450 after taxes and applying a 2 year warranty selection.
I am still behind the world it seems. My family recently forced me to get a new laptop well a gift and I am still freaked out that you couldn't find a real laptop for under $300, just chromebooks. I know, gaming requirements and all that, but that number just seems so big. That's the price for performance I suppose.

Yeah anything below that steps into 1050 ti territory or 1660 and both things are already really aged and there's no reason to pay 600-800 for something with a very limited lifespan because all of the parts except ram and HDD is soldered directly to the board. The G15 — all of the ports are on daughter boards so if something gets broken it can be fixed unlike the MSI GS63 Stealth 8re I got now. To be very fair, the GS63 was given to me (I paid shipping) and it was already in this condition. I've kept repairing it but it's just too far gone now.

G15 does have the cpu and gpu soldered to the board — but it's at least a newer part that'll have a long service life ahead of it and it's got that super high TDP (comes with a 240w power brick) that'll ensure it's got enough power to keep going for many years. Ram is replaceable and it has 2 nvme slots for drives.

Biggest gripe is no cd drive and no 2.5" bay internally.

I am also curious. Did it still work anyway? I guess I could see him leaving it be if he used it primarily as a desktop but I would just take it out if that was the case.

Also, your post was 44444, congrats on the… not GET since this ain't a chan, but I thought would note it.

The long maintenance is only because the current server is ass regarding backend file transfers. Works great on the front end, but transferring "the last 24 hours" is the slowest thing I've ever seen from this kind of server.

@ZizzyDizzyMC

Also you've been jebaited and we'll just be doing maintenance soon but the maintenance will probably be on a period of a day or so for our final migration


This does not make people want to donate
I will at some point in the future though

Well shit, after reading that quickly, I thought that the site was gonna die and didn't even get into 1 full year of it's creation.
But then I read it closely and it's just a maintenance and we all got smeckledorfed.

Hopefully you'll get a new efficent and convenient laptop to run things smoothly.

It's the cheapest thing I can get that'll last respectably and be fairly well built. The other PC is an MSI and overlooking the abuse it's had — it's got issues that should have never been a problem to begin with.

I have a uhh few friends that's able to get me some info about the units before purchase. G15 has a 125W G_TDP , which is about 50W higher than most other laptops with a 3060, meaning it is about 33% faster on average compared to any other unit. It will even out perform many 3070 laptops in cuda compute among other things. It's also equipped with the ryzen 5000 series CPU, 8 cores 16 threads. Plenty of high speed single thread for some of my workloads, and lots of cores for multitasking.

My only beef is that I'll eventually need to get 32GB of ram in it, so I can have more stuff open at the same time. It also doesn't have a 2.5" bay — but this isn't a problem anymore as I have a USB 3.0 to external SATA adaptor that I can use with an SSD I have for extra storage beyond the built in NVMe.

I did a lot of research into this, and I'm saving money through Dell. Ebay is a no go — most of the laptops just $100 lower have a 40-50w lower TDP and slower Intel CPU's.
