don't buy into pre-built gamer shit which costs overpriced for a 8th gen intel with cucked gpu. even a power supply or a gaming monitor costs about 1/3 of your budget.

notebookcheck.net is a good place to look for laptops with a good GPU, also they'd probably have fps benchmarks of the titles you play.

this is meant to say it'd cost around 600 to get a 1030 or similar laptop at 1080p while it'd cost around 800 to get the same thing minus the mouse/keyboard. laptops recently have become cheap. check the gpu first. the only difference is airflow, and meme gaming logo/keyboard.

My suggestion, if such exists, is to find cameras that need no more power than can be provided by Power Over Ethernet via the Catergory 5 cables.

Thus, your cameras will be powered by the very cable that brings back the video and sound data to you. For longer runs, you may want to use Category 6 cable, but do some research yourself. You can bring several cameras to a good router and use that to power and signal-boost them, then send the resultant back to your computer on a single cable, but it will require power separate from the Category Five cable.

Depending on how much time and money you have, you may want to bury it in plastic pipe underground to minimize interference with it by moles or whatever.

Hide those cameras very well. The wires going up the trees can be black, also, to minimize their visual impact, or you can go to the trouble of camouflaging them to match the bark of the trees in general or each individually.

If you are putting them close to the ground, you can just drill downward at an angle to make the wires able to go directly from surface of bark on one side to near ground level on the other side. Remember, the inside of the tree is fairly static, but the tree gets thicker from the bark outward, so remember that when placing cables so the tree doesn't behead the camera over time.

Welcome to 8chan. It's not technically correct, but if you've spent only an hour here, you should know that gook is now used for any Asian the poster doesn't like.

Just a lazy google for the term shows:

> social media scholars, our attention was drawn to the hate speech that started appearing online in the early stages of the pandemic. Reports from March 2020 indicated that anti-Chinese hate speech on Twitter has skyrocketed, estimating a staggering 900% increase. Over 80,000 tweets containing phrases like "Chink Virus," "Gook Flu," and "#KungFlu" reflect how easily racial slurs can be posted and disseminated via social media. President Trump's use of the term "Chinese Virus" to describe the coronavirus-a naming tactic that is explicitly discouraged by the World Health Organization-indicates how such rhetoric is becoming normalized as a way for Americans to deal with their mounting pandemic fear by blaming a foreign enemy.

Lenovo's naming is a bit retarded though. On their site, if you select "thin and light," you'll be met with Yogas, X1s, and Ts. Their workstation lineup is even more confusing. You'll see: P53, P1 Gen 2, P1 Gen 3, P15s, P15v. With some small effort can figure out what they're doing, but it's bad on their part.

Look for companies that provide linux as an option at purchase. Not only will you save on paying the Microsoft tax for a system you're going to wipe anyways, but you can expect to find less compatibility problems with drivers. I'm not sure if this is still true, but Dell provided linux with their XPS line.
