I'm pretty sure a T460 can do 4K output. Check for yourself obviously.

Take the meme pill and preorder lmao system76 new line of laptops that come with coreboot.
I bought two t420 a while back figured the first one would last a while. Love this thing. Best laptop I ever owned. Such a travesty that they don't make them like this anymore. Would kill for a square monitor.

>>678 Prices have gone through the roof on these old babies in the last year or two. I picked up a couple T420s with the i7 for less than $50 each, now they’ll run you $250 or more. Pretty amazing because a brand new IntelAviv shittop with a chinklet keyboard is only $150 at Wal-Mart.

OpenBSD general. Anonymous 07/21/2021 (Wed) 00:33:07 No. 1732 [Reply]
OpenBSD is the thinking person’s OS, security and correctness are the primary concerns. No big Jewish or Chinese companies contributing code, NSA has a hate boner for it instead of praise, run by a based white Boer. Unless you go Plan 9 or Haiku, which have less software and are both maybe a bit strange even for the experienced, it’s the best option for a cyber dissident in modern Weimerica.

Used Business Desktop Thread Anonymous 04/01/2020 (Wed) 01:58:46 No. 785 [Reply]
I made a bunch of posts on rikchan about old business desktops that I will copy here. you can get a machine with moderate performance at a very good price-to-performance ratio if you are okay with some of the tradeoffs I will discuss. Perhaps this information will be helpful to my fellow /g/tards.

>>862 I plan on upgrading to an i7 2600 soon and eventually 32GB RAM since that's unofficially supported on this model. Unfortunately this machine came with only 4GB DIMMs so I'll have to buy all new RAM. But they're probably compatible with the Core2 shitbox I use as a server that has 6GB right now so that'll get a nice upgrade most likely.
The USFF offerings are most interesting, like ThinkCentre Tiny. They're usually upgradeable, so you can have a really small desktop with a proper CPU and maxed with RAM and storage. Been thinking about getting one for a home server, that, a Rasbperry Pi, or ideally something custom so I can get rid of my shitty WD NAS.
I got some free computers from a local library since they were "broken"; but after doing some fixes they all worked save for one (which I scrapped for parts). I guess throwing them out is cheaper then paying for a compentant I.T guy. This happens more often than you would think, I got a free laptop through this method... all I did was open it up and reseat the fan and apply fresh thermal paste.
>>785 I can't imagine buying one of these... I get them for free all the time, but I work in I.T. I haven't paid for a computer in 20 years... ETA PRIME is always fucking with these and other low cost tech, good channel. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V1NpJj9rUMM
I just nuked my lappy the day after I refurb'd my old asus eee pc as a gift to a friend. I'm flat broke and after 2 days of imquiries, I found out that all the local biz and city offices use the same 2 guys for IT. Imma cry. You fags got it good. I got iced out be clumbsiness and smalltown mafia.

https://loki.network/ What you think about this? Is it safe and anonymous?
(71.52 KB 541x290 secret.png)
Looks based but haven't looked too much into it. TFW I read it as Loli network
>>1169 >>1404 (((Australian Honeypot)))
Sorry babe. Loki itself shovels out all the right comos off buzzwords and nifty features. It's either bullshit or crazy well funded and outsourced to be anything other than a polyCorp. The conversion to Oxen makes me think that Loki was a publicity push that went well and now a "friendly colaborator" with amazing timing just happened by with capital, management chops and matket share. This whole thing stinks like a special containment unit to lure suspicious normies back onto the corral. It's just to feature rich and perfectly pitched.
^I can't spell. Am sorry. No weenie pinch plz.

anons need a new OS any tbh just needs to be secure Anonymous 09/20/2019 (Fri) 18:39:36 No. 88 [Reply]
need a new OS
tails OS or cube OS
16 posts and 3 images omitted.
Arch, Gentoo, anything not Ubuntu. Really it's mostly user preference, if you're new to Linux I would recommend Arch over Gentoo. But that's about all. "Secure" is vague, securing your system is mostly up to you and not being stupid. Just avoid shit like Windows or Mac OS which have more security holes than a block of Swiss cheese fucked by a pack of starving sex crazed Nambian children.
>>88 If security is your only consideration, you can’t beat OpenBSD.
I use devuan personally and would recommend, very happy with it >>247 >ME - "Management Engine (ME), also known as the Intel Manageability Engine,[1][2] is an autonomous subsystem that has been incorporated in virtually all of Intel's processor chipsets since 2008" ... so libreboot supports only older Intel platforms like Napa, Montevina, Eagle Lake, Lakeport (2004-2006) >AMD PSP - "Libreboot has support for AMD hardware of Family 15h (Bulldozer or Piledriver, ~2012 gen)" This means AMD is the best shot for say libreboot, but there are some other problems with hardware security i believe, ethernet port being one IIRC, this is eliminated by using USB ethernet adapter. More reading https://libreboot.org/faq.html
>>88 I wanna use a different OS than windows 10 but I need it to be able to run RUST (steam game) multiplayer.
uh.... CloverOS. Install Gentoo(tm). https://cloveros.org

>>648 SearX is bad on public instances. Also unironically to use it as it is meant to is to make a private instance to yourself which is contradicting to what it advertises. Also Yacy is an aggregator so it bad for privacy as well.
>>417 You're a faggot. Ubuntu is open sores and you look into it if you wanted to. Might as well consider Linux as a whole to be compromise since companies use it.
>>329 Wintards? Anon, really? the preferred nomenclature is "winnigger". Keep up with the times. Winnigger "computer guys" are my favourite. Can't use a command line. Have no idea how to admin any server that isn't a Windows Server. They can essentially install drivers and fix grandma's computer and in their minds that makes them "Hackerman". If you're not using a Unix-like operating system I have no respect for you. I can understand being forced to use win shit at work, but when you go home you better be using a Unix-like operating system or you're basically a retard.

The inconvienient truth about linux Anonymous 10/25/2020 (Sun) 22:57:00 No. 1256 [Reply]
Why the Linux such a bad OS? The 4chan banned me off of the /qa/ board and range banned my town from image posting so we will discuss the bad parts about linux here instead There is a good part about it. However, If you have a job or a life it is worthless. The two major software suites that everyone needs is not availibe >doesnt have any adobe software >dont have office When it comes to resource usage, it plain just isn't better in any meaningful capacity compared to windows >the windoes OS lowers memory usage the less ram you have >person was able to trim windows 10 down to only using 450 mb of memory at idle >unused memory is wasted memory anyways Customization is something linux may have over windows, but ricing is a waste of time

Retards complain about this exact same shit muh office muh fisher price low effort brainlet bullshit If this thread can turn at least one person away from globalist spyware and start getting them a bit inspired instead of braindead retard like 99% of people that are addressed only as 'consumers' by their corporate kike masters then it's worth it.

>>1272 You do not belong here, you nigger. Now begone back to plebbit!
i hate adobe software, there is always a foss alternative to it like gimp or kdenlive. and don't worry about office, libreoffice has you covered. sorry for the late response but its the honest to god truth

>>1701 Why do you think Palemoon is any good? I used it for a while, did some research on it and was not impressed. It's just an esoteric Firefox mod with weirdo developers that make questionable choices. I stopped using it after they blocked the uMatrix add-on without giving any good reason. I wouldn't touch chromium with a ten foot pole, googled or ungoogled. Tor is interesting but I wouldn't be surprised if the whole thing was zogged. So many nodes are in Germany, which is total zog lackey. I read about 40% of nodes are in Germany which would fit what I've seen. Sometimes I check nodes and every single one is German.
>>1698 >neocities Into the trash it goes
you have 4 choices ungoogled chromium librewolf pale moon tor
>>1693 using tor on brave is completely the opposite of private. A large part of the anonymity of tor is the fact all the browsers are the same. if you use brave, a completely different browser with an entirely different fingerprint look and even webengine you will stand out like a sore thumb and compromise all anonymity on the tor network. retard
>>1723 There is some website (maybe multiple) that tells you how unique your setup appears to be by saying it's as similar as 1 in however many other devices (coming as close to 1 being the best for anonymity). I forget the name, but it seems like a good tool for others to gauge how anonymous their software enables them to be.
