Big news! New laptop!

Well although this is not releated to development, I've bought a new PC, finally! I've been working hard this year with kids at soccer team, and with my saves, I've expended them on this nice laptop. The laptop is a Lenovo G510 with this specifications:
  • Processor: Intel Core i7 - 4702 MQ
  • RAM Memory: 4GB DDR3 (One slot free)
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon r7 M265
  • Hard Drive: 500 GB
  • Price: 599 Euros (820 dollar, 490 pounds, 49499 ruppies)


Although you may think that with this laptop everything will be faster, you will have to wait a bit. My old PC with all the files and configurations is disconnected at the moment, and pending of a formatting. I shall restore the backup I made, and that is a huge amount of data... Apart from that I'm asking you if you can DONATE to me, to buy the second slot of RAM to upgrade to 8 GB and then be a perfect PC for Android compiling. I can tell you that all my saves + donation money went to this PC and now I'm on 0, so I can't buy anything.

Apart from that I've to inform myself if upgrading memory RAM and changing it's OS to a Linux distribution will broke Lenovo warranty. If so, I must re-consider that and start working 2-3 months after I'm sure everything is working as expected. Apart from that Windows 8.1 need to be "hacked" to allow the installation of other OS on the machine.


Anyway, if I recieve enough donations, I'll "break" the warranty and improve my laptop a bit more. Alhtough it seems silly to increase the RAM on a PC I've just bought, the offer of this laptop was SO good that I could not pass it, even thouhg buying it with 4 GB of RAM.

As said, there is no progress, as old PC is disconnected, and I'll take this weekend to transfare all the files I need... probably more :( Apart from that, I'm the happiest person of the world! Thanks you all, there is a piece of this laptop that is yours! (Donation people)

    1. I'll write just a copy paste from my entry:

      "As said, there is no progress, as old PC is disconnected"

      As you may guess, I don't know when.

  3. Si la ranura de la RAM es accesible sin abrir la laptop no creo que tengas problemas, también para lo del sistema operativo podrías hacer una imagen del disco duro y restaurarla en un futuro si llegaras a tener problemas (si es que no trae la partición de recuperación y la aplicación para hacer los DVD de restauración). FELICIDADES! Y por favor los que están pregunte y pregunte por avances en cm9 sepan que el desarrollo no es nada fácil, si fuera así todos los teléfonos tendrían kitkat ahorita.

  6. Biel,no te era mejor una pc de torre?
    Digo por la relacion potencia precio,siempre te será,mejor.
    Esta es solo mi opinión personal.
    Tambien depende de los usos que le des aparte del desarrollo.
    Felicidades y muchas gracias por tu trabajo.

    1. Si, una PC de torre es mejor, pero neceistaré una PC potente para el año que viene (Universidad) y para trabajos potentes de bachillerato, como mi tdr, donde desarollaremos una mano biónica i simulacion en 3D, asi que me iba mejor un portátil.

  25. warranty void by OS reinstall? Thats paranoic ;) Anyway u should try to install linux at VMware 10. It seems to u can use whole machine for Virtual OS, but yeah, windows 8 is taking alot of RAM and u will need this badly... Well resize some partition and install linux with grub on boot (to keep windows on a board) should be no problem to You. Cheers and have fun!

    no need to replace the opperating system - just do a dual boot with linux then you can choose to boot windows or linux
    Iv got an i7 4702MQ 8gb ram and a gefore 750M 17inch laptop and it has a windows 8.1 and a osx mavericks 10.9.2 dual boot

    1. Yeah, but resizing partitions could void waratny

      Nope what you do to the hard drive is up to you - warrenty will only cover you if the drive has a manufacture fault - partitioning cant void a warrenty - its your hard drive to do what ever you want with - you will only be covered if the drives fails due to a manufacturing fault - anything else like you drop it smash blow it up or have it ablitterated by a virus you would never be covered for anyway

    Also you will not void your warranty by changing the opperating system - why? because a warranty doesnt cover you for any form of software damage anyway - since the os is software you can change it get a virus or totally screw your os up - no matter what you do software wise your warranty will never cover you anyway
    Warranty will only cover you for hardware damage that has not been caused by accidental damage

  35. Biel, no se si aun traerá esa opción pero una vez instale en mi PC Ubuntu desde Windows como si fuera un programa normal y al reiniciar te pide con cual quieres iniciar, no modifica particiones, para desinstalarlo solo ejecutas el desinstalador desde Windows y ya.

    ReplyDelete
  36. at last there is an option on ubuntu if i remember, that you can install linux as large file on windows partition. IDK what is performance of that way but should be much faster than VM box, cuz this not running windows at all. Personally i preffer method with 2 partitions, ive never tested myself "image mode". Well ive never seen be4 warranty of OS, specially that is preinstalled one and i supose u got some rescue dvd for restore system or there is some hidden partition for service (i always delete it on laptops). Make sure with everything and install linux bro ;)

  50. Biel, puedes dejar un link de donde compraste ese PC? El año que viene yo también entro a la uni y me parece bastante bueno, creo que se adapta perfectamente a las características que busco, supongo que ya sabrás al estar en la misma situación xD
