What devices and apps you use for school / College?
How can you not use 64-bit programs? Windows has no problems with that, your laptop must have issues.
It’s a snapdragon arm64 laptop. It’s has no intel or amd processors. google Samsung galaxy book go 5G. You’ll find your answers.
Also I’m using windows 10 arm. If I switch to Windows 11 that I can use 64 bit programs but not much and it’s still gonna be emulated
You should've specified you couldn't run x86-64 programs 🤦
I wanted a laptop that I can work with arm64 Applications
Well to answer your question, I used to use 2 low end Lenovo laptops, and currently using a lower mid range Acer gaming laptop. Of course now in 2022 it's considered low end, but back in 2019 when I bought this it wasn't. My Lenovo laptops were Flex 3-1480 ultrabook and IdeaPad 310 15ABR notebook, while the Acer model is Nitro 5 AN15-54 Intel.
Specs for the Lenovo Flex 3-1480 was Intel Core i5 6200U @ 2.3GHZ 2C/4T 15W 14nm, Intel HD Graphics 520 128MB LP-DDR3 @ 300MHZ (1GHZ Turbo), 8GB LP-DDR3 SODIMM RAM @ 1600MHZ (1x8GB), 2TB WD Blue 2.5" SATA III HDD @ 5400RPM, Windows 10 Home Edition x64 Version 17XX, DirectX11.1 + OpenGL V4.6 API, USB 3.0 + USB 2.0 + HDMI 1.4 + SD-HC + 3.5mm Audio, DolbyHD Audio Stereo, RealTek Wi-Fi Network Adapter, 1920x1080 FHD 14.7" LED 60HZ SDR 360° Multi-Touch
Specs for the Lenovo IdeaPad 310 15ABR are AMD A10 9600P APU @ 2.4GHZ 4C/4T 30W 14nm, AMD Radeon R5 Graphics 512MB DDR4 @ 720MHZ, 12GB DDR4 SODIMM RAM @ 2133MHZ (8GB + 4GB), 1TB WD Blue 2.5" SATA III HDD @ 7200RPM, Windows 10 Home Edition x64-Bit Version 19XX, DirectX12.1 + Vulkan V1.1 + OpenGL V4.6 API, USB 3.0 + USB 2.0 + HDMI 1.4 + SD-HC + 3.5mm Audio + VGA, CD-ROM/DVDR+ Optical Disk Drive, DolbyHD Audio Surround, RealTek Wi-Fi Network Adapter, 1366x768 HD 15.6" LED 60HZ SDR 180° (VSR @ 1920x1080 FHD)
I don't know why writing B with a right bracket shows that emoji. Also the IdeaPad wasn't really much of an upgrade and only got it cause of complications with Lenovo customer service. I used the Flex from September 2016 to March 2017 while IdeaPad used from March 2017 to December 2019. I should've just stuck with the Flex but I can't go back in the past and fix my mistakes.
And of course, finally my most recent and fastest laptop I used, has these specs: Intel Core i5 9300H @ 2.4GHZ 4C/8T (4.1GHZ Turbo 45W) 14nm+, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 3GB GDDR5 @ 1366MHZ (1750MHZ Boost), Intel UHD Graphics 630 1GB DDR4 @ 350MHZ (1GHZ Turbo), 16GB DDR4 SODIMM RAM [2x8GB] @ 2666MHZ, 250GB Crucial MX500 M.2 2280 SATA III SSD @ 600MBPS + 250GB 2.5" SATA III SSD @ 600MBPS, Windows 10 Home Edition x64-Bit Version 21H2, DirectX12.2 + Vulkan V1.2 + OpenGL V4.6 API, MaxxWave Audio Surround, Intel Gaming Wi-Fi Adapter, USB 3.1 + USB C + USB 2 + HDMI 2 + 3.5mm Audio, 1920x1080 FHD 15.6" LED IPS 60HZ SDR 180°
I replaced the 1TB HDD with a 128GB 2.5" SSD from some no name brand later on for the IdeaPad. I also used to have a 1TB HDD for my Acer laptop until I broke it lol. As you may or may not tell, the Acer laptop was a huge upgrade over my previous laptops and I had to pay more money for it ofc. The Flex was 800 CAD at MSRP but it was on discount at the time for 600 CAD. The IdeaPad was 750 CAD at MSRP though on sale at 600 CAD. My current Acer was 1000 CAD full price but reduced to 800 CAD. They were all more expensive at online stores however I bought them in stores so they were cheaper.
@scott04sa22 if u want a arm laptop the m1 macs are currently the best on the market that can also run x86-64 apps too
@TuxTheAstronaut MacBooks are overpriced and their ecosystem sucks.
Yeah even though the M1 chips have far better specs and performance than previous Intel chips they used, MacBooks are still costing thousands of dollars (except for Air model which is bad anyways). If I have to fork out like 2-5K USD for a flagship laptop that doesn't even include dedicated graphics and can't have it's RAM and SSD replaced, I might as well go for a custom built HEDT PC with way better specs and performance than any Mac. And yes, that even includes the M1 Ultra where Apple claimed it's iGPU destroys the RTX 3090 but third party benchmarks showed the opposite.
ye i dont like the apple ecosystem
i would really like to see a competitor to the m1 macs though cuz m1 hardware is pretty good
ideally id would like to see a powerful arm laptop that runs linux
Well the Core i9 12900HK almost destroys the M1 Max in performance (but not in efficiency) Ryzen 9 6900HX come close to M1 Pro in performance
Nope. I have a laptop and a desktop but for some reason I just like grabbing my pen & paper for literally anything. I'm currently working on my first book which I'm writing on paper. I don't know if there's something wrong with me but typing is just not for me lol
It's to make sure everyone has a computer at home and it's basically for surfing the web for information and writing essays and other schools tasks. I never had a school computer and if I got one I probably wouldn't have used it much because I had better stuff myself and would have used those.
I'm 31 now; but yes I used my laptop in undergrad and I use my laptop now in graduate school. I think a laptop is just an essential way of life in 1st world countries.
I graduated college just as computers were becoming popular. We did not use laptops though. The college had a computer lab where you could use a word processor or access the internet.
Graduated well before the laptop handout thing, I don't even know how that can be productive for kids to be honest.
Heck yeah that's practically an eighth of our study material
yes its essential nowadays
I used to use my laptop.
