  1. haha thanks cooper, it does sound a bit strange now that you put it that way . In terms of portability and mobility, I was thinking of using this in a car as opposed to carrying a huge PSU plus a heavy battery in a backpack and have everything melt from generating crazy amount of heat. The reason I was sharing this idea is mostly to bring some unconventional variety (although a cumbersome one... but nonetheless). I know that you're thinking "If it isn't broken, don't fix it", but it just seemed to me like everyone has the same solution and it gets somewhat boring. Don't get me wrong, I still very much appreciate you sharing your thoughts on this and I will most likely go that route too. And in case anyone is wondering what adapter I was talking about, it's EXP GDC Beast Laptop External Independent Video Card Dock. Not sure how it is with compatibility on Linux though. http://www.everbuying.net/product1078689.html
  2. Hi guys, I was recently looking to get a cheap laptop to stay portable when having some fun with the pineapple, but then I thought; what if I wanted to do some bruteforcing on the go? Then I would have to use its GPU. But I doubt that a cheap laptop will get the job done fast enough on the graphics side. So I did some looking around and found a few external GPU adapters. As long as your laptop has a PCIe slot, you should be good to go. And although it goes through PCIe x2 interface, I think it shouldn’t even matter when using the card for number crunching …as long as you have enough juice to power the thing (car charger adapter for example or just a large battery). This way if you already have a good graphics card, you can take it with you to do something a little more serious than what you could with a laptop onboard GPU. Anyway, I just wanted to share this with you because I thought that maybe this would be interesting for you guys to check out, discuss and have some fun with. Tell me what you think
