Video not working? GO OLDSKOOL! Or just give up. N* is bound to post a better vid.



Pentium 166 laptop, $8,000 in today's money

It's a nice reminder of how lucky we are today with computers orders of magnitude faster, and also at a fraction of the price.

And also how completely bogus the mainstream economics conventional wisdom is about deflation being a disaster and how people will defer purchases indefinitely in a deflationary market. This lie is still printed in textbooks despite there being no empirical evidence for it in practice, and a wealth of evidence debunking it.

Except that your example *is* covered by economics when you consider purchasing power - if the rate at which your purchasing power is decreasing is less than the rate at which what you get for a given amount is increasing, then the deferred purchase argument clearly doesnt add up.

Its another straw man from you.
- you've taken an argument no credible economist would make and used to to explain why economics is bunk.

My laptop is occasionally freezing and requiring a hard reset, I'm going to assume this is a hardware fault as Windows for all its flaws doesn't do this post the 9x era. It isn't overheating.

I'm wondering if it could be my hard drive (SSD) on the way out, which would actually be better than it being the laptop itself as it would be a lot easier to replace. There's no indication of any problem with the SSD in its health stats though.

How good are HP laptops in this price range, quality wise. (The specs are fine. I want the lower res screen as it's easier to read etc.)

Dunno about the laptop but have windows still not sorted out scaling properly yet? On a Mac, it's easier to read the higher the resolution regardless because you just get smoother fonts and graphics, rather than a change in size of anything.

That's right, they still haven't unfortunately. If I was getting a Mac I know it wouldn't be an issue.

Since I reinstalled Windows I haven't had a single freeze in 2 weeks so it seems to be fixed
