  1. Hello, I'am a student doing my bachelor's in computer science with cybersecurity honors and I need to buy a new laptop for my uni and for my masters as well. I was wondering if macbook pro 14"/16" with the M1 pro and 16gb or 32gb unified memory would be suitable for the cybersecurity domain and I plan to do a little AI as well. Or should I just buy a windows laptop?
  2. HI have an Alienware m17 with a dual boot with parrotsec and windows 10. There were no clear problems before and I just went to turn on my computer just like any other time. For some reason it will not turn on. Anyone have any advice? Edit: My charger seems to be working fine. Also my laptop shows no lights and nothing on screen. It won’t turn on at all. I also looked at some troubleshooting guides online and none have worked so far.

  5. I just got my pineapple yesterday and I managed to update the firmware. It took about two hours because of wifi dropping from laptop.or pineapple. When I connect the wifi to my laptop then connect the tetra pineapple, the wifi disconnects from my laptop. The pineapple is still connected, then I reconnect the wifi and then the pineapple gets disconnected. Am I doing something wrong or is there a glitch with the pineapple? Thank in advance.
  6. Hi, I am a complete noob to everything ever so just please bear with me. I want to buy myself a basic laptop which will allow me to begin learning to hack - I have a strong knowledge of computers and want to learn Internet security and pentesting properly. I have a £450-£500 budget and I maybe can push it if needed. I want to be running Kali Linux on it and I will be partitioning a drive to get to that. I was hoping for a 15.6" screen, i5, 8gb RAM and a 1TB HDD with as much battery life as possible. I have seen normal laptops with this for £400 so I think I can get this. My real question is if there are any things I will NEED to get me started; for example I know certain wireless cards make pentesting much easier but I don't know which models or which laptops contain them (I was hoping not to buy an external one). I guess if need be I can change a wireless card but I would like to stay away from fiddling with internals. Any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, MrJaMilne
  7. Ive been looking for a nice, simple laptop for a mini kali box. Preferably a smallish screen size for portability and compatible NIC (obviously) and non-touchscreen for a lighter laptop, and also it would be useless for me. SSD doesn't matter, i can just add one... I didn't know where else to turn but some Hak5 fans; just some models or even links to the laptops would be beautiful. Preferably ones you guys use already for pentesting and if its a new model, even better! Thanks in advance! glow
  8. So my laptop is about 5 years old and I am looking for a huge upgrade because I'm out of space on my current laptop and It just doesn't have as much power as I wan't! This laptop would be used as a pentes laptop so I wan't as much power as I can get! So I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 which has 2GB of RAM and a Pentium dual core CPU T4300. I am looking for something that has 16GB of RAM and a Quad core CPU. I don't want to get a 2 in 1 were it is a laptop and a tablet because that is the stupidest thing I've ever heard of. Ohhh and I would like it to run Windows 7 but its okay if it runs 8/8.1 because I could always change that. My max budget is around 1600$. If you guys have any suggestions I would love to hear them. Currently I am looking at an Alienware 14 with an i7 and 16GB of RAM I know that this is a gaming laptop but It still is really powerful! -Thanks
  9. I searched and haven't found much on laptops. My laptop is old and showing its age and I'm looking for a new laptop, probably 15", but maybe 14". I see Darren's Hacker box but can't tell what kind or model it is, then saw another episode he had a new Lenovo, but couldn't tell model. Really like to have something I can upgrade the hard drive and memory myself. Any info or suggestions would be appreciated.
  10. I am looking for an ultrabook to be my little portable hackbook. I will most likely run Kali on whatever I get. Does anyone have an opinion on which of these ultrabooks is better or any suggestions that are cheaper? I am currently using a Macbook Pro/15"/mid-2012/i7/16GB RAM/500GB HDD. The only problem is that it is a bit hefty to be a little portable hackbook. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Edit: I would like one with as much RAM as possible becuase I will be running several VMs as well for playing with malware.
  11. Now that I'm doing more and more development in Linux, I want to get un-tethered from my desktop Zotac box. Any recommendations on a light-weight, nice laptop to run Linux Mint on? Usual specs. Want to keep price under $800.. Where do you purchase a laptop without an o/s installed. I want a decent keyboard. So just asking what you use and/or recommend. Thanks.
