"They let you do it" does not say consent? Trump said they give consent with that sentence. Might not be straight "They gave me consent" but close. Both cases consent is given but Trump is bashed. Thats the hypocrisy.
Believe it or not, just because someone doesn't explicitly say "no" or resist does not mean consent has been granted. This is why libbies talk about "rape culture" and shit, because people don't understand simple concepts like this.

I don't see all to many comments here, or from the Right calling for the killing, permanent maiming, or similar scarring and marking of CIS, Whites, Males, And any combination of said categories.
The worst I've seen is Deus Vult memes. Let me run that by you.
making jokes of the Crusades and how we need another one is the worst I've seen, because they call for the killing and removal of Muslims ( Remove Kebab if you will) from Europe and North America.
There's tons of hate comments yes, but of those that I can tell, they don't actually say anything near SJW level of hate.
Let me specify, I'm talking about hate comments from the Alt Right, not all of the right. There are many actual nazis and racists etc. But I'm talking about the Alt Right, as opposed to the Left and SJWs.

- So currently I'm looking for a laptop I don't really know …
I've had a pretty decent laptop for a while now - my advise if you're looking for a gaming laptop would be don't get your hopes up about running game well.
The main problem with laptops for gaming is unless you spend more than £1k you'll generally be limited to M series GPU/CPU so you won't get the best performance.
That being said:
This looks like it'll meet your needs. But again, the CPU is the most limiting factor (2.8GHz at best)
Thanks but the price for that is like a grand and a half more than I was aiming to spend
You said your price limit was £1000 and if you only change the i5 to the i7 and the ram to 16gb the price is £1070
My apologies, yesterday the price was 2300 for some reason.
I have the 1070£ price now. With the ram is it worth getting one of the more powerful ones on offer? Same with the graphics card? (All of this knowledge escapes me)
Is this the computer you have? What's the battery lol on it?
I bought an older version and didn't realise the importance of graphics (GPU) and CPU at the time.
Generally speaking 8GB of ram and a CPU of 3.0ghz with a decent video card is enough to run most games. But since laptops are, by design, less powerful they tend to use weaker CPU and GPU/
I'd also suggest this one (
) with 8GB of RAM instead if you're willing to spend an extra £200 because the graphics card is a desktop one (and a bloody good one at that) so it's guaranteed to run almost every game at good graphics. It's also got what looks to be the best laptop CPU out right now.
With gaming laptops battery is always an issue because gaming will take a lot of power regardless of the laptop/battery. Best advice I got for that is try and game near a plug so you can take the battery out and run through the socket's power and use the battery when you're not gaming
Is it worth paying more for extra ram?
And I notice there's no SSD drive with this model. Is it worth paying for that as well?
Thanks for your patience
Depends how much you wanna do. Unless your running multiple applications at once, or hosting a server, 8GB will do you fine.
SSDs aren't necessary either but they increase the boot time of your pc/laptop a noticeable amount.
If you go with the first laptop I suggested, drop to 8GB, add the Samsung Evo 250GB SSD (under the Memory - Hard Disk drop down list) you keep the same price and gain some general speed (startup, program loading etc,) but lose some storage.
It's all about balance, if you go make your own build idea (using the site I gave or another) I can tell you roughly how it'd run. But other than that it's down to you at the end of the day on what you find most important
a few questions
1) what is the intended purpose of the laptop? (school, gaming, art)
2) what size screen do you want? (not resolution like 1920x1080, but physical screen size)
3) do you have a weight preference? (light to heavy)
4) do you want a laptop with special features like a webcam, touchscreen, numpad?
with your budget, you could easily get a pretty decent desktop rig, but if you're set on a laptop we kinda need some details on what you're looking for...
Gaming/work- I'm a law student so it's really only typing and spreadsheets and shit
Screen size roughly 15".6 because that was what my last one was
Light obviously preferable but it's not my main concern
Touch screen could be something I'm interested in but not sure whether its worth the extra cost
decent option as well
but the GPU is the most pathetic of the bunch (still runs a lot of games though)
this fits preferences fairly well and the price is fairly low (good for if you plan on saving for a high-end desktop in the next 1-2 years)
basically short-term pain but long-term gain
badhatharry's option is very, very good albeit on the more expensive side (good if you want a laptop that you'll use for the next 10 years or so)
I would choose this one
if you're still on the fence in choosing laptops, list the kinds of games you play (it'll help in picking a GPU thereby lowering the amount of options)
to be a laptop? You get so much more for your money with a desktop that unless there's no way around it I wouldn't recommend a laptop at all.
I spend so much time on the go that a desktop wouldn't be practical. For example; I work at a pretty quiet pub and like to play games there when there aren't many customers about
