I was fed up with the stock speakers on the Thinkpad x230, so I installed some 12" Macbook ones instead. XD

It's a bit ghetto but the results speak for themselves, the rolloff point changing from 400Hz to around 230Hz makes a huge difference. Significantly louder as well so I have more headroom to EQ and still have acceptable levels.

Sure I may have mixed up the left and right channels, and I think it needs more foam tape to stop the rattles but those are just minor details (might be some phase shenanigans too, hey it's a work in progress!). I may have the best sounding thinkpad on the planet, I'll take that. =P

It only cost 20 dollarydoos, you can find them even cheaper on aliexpress but I bought locally because I'm impatient.

Now see if you can fit an amplifier that hooks up directly to system power

Sort of reminds me of Daily Lives of Highschool Boys.

Ughhh I ordered a used Meiji EMT microscope, any used microscope in Australia is wicked expensive. I probably should have spent a bit more and got a new Chinese microscope like an Amscope but ehhhh I'm a sucker for used quality equipment (and I'm cheap).

I've just hit that stage where my eyes struggle to do any close up work, SMD soldering is a no-go for me, too much eye strain. I wonder if I'll get used to soldering under magnification or if I'm going to transfer eye strain into neck strain. XD

:frowning2:

Hope your eyes get better.

Eye fatigue has been something I've been fighting with due to my constant computer use. It really sucks... ToT

-----------------

SIGGRAPH has been amazing this year. Super excited to try out all the things that have been announced! @_@

Also considering finally upgrading my GPU in a few months. Looking at the 2070 Super.

I know gamers tend to look own on RTX but for pro viz, dedicated raytracing hardware is offering crazy performance for renders.

Still want to wait a bit for improvements in CPU and monitor tech before considering any upgrades for those though. Good thing they are moving fast.

The 5700XT looks like decent-ish value too if you don't need RTX.

Hmmmm I think shipping from Australia will kill the deal, and you probably don't want to deal with taxes and all that too.

I'm not allowed to say where I get them from but uhhh I can sometimes get normal crappy blower fan GTX 1080's for say.....about the cost of a new AAA game. Shipping might be about 60 dollarydoos (EUR37) to Germany.....wait why do I think you're from Germany again? I've been playing too much Azur Lane and seeing "U" in a name makes me think of a U-boat. XD
