I Summon you Netduma Army! (Laptop recommendations)

A week ago

Hi guys! I'm looking for a new laptop to buy since my current laptop is really old and I thought I'd gather opinions from the Netduma Army experts on laptop experience. I currently have a 15 inch Toshiba satellite C655 (ikr this dinosaur is super old and outdated LOL) running windows 7. Luckily this old bad boy was free for me back in 2012.


I don't really game on laptops, mostly just browse and do things my mobile devices can't do. I honestly think the 15 inch is too big for me. It's kind of difficult to bring to places because of its size. Right now I'm leaning towards buying a Microsoft Surface book 2 with the 13.5 inch screen display, and I've only heard good things about this product.





Surface Book 2


The price & specs I plan to get for $1,349 (which I thought was a pretty good plan at this cost) What do you guys think about the cost? Remember, I'm not a laptop expert!

  • 13.5 inch display
  • i5 Intel core processor
  • 8GB memory
  • 256GB Storage

What do you guys think? If not this, what laptop would you recommend to replace my old free Toshiba? Remember, I'm looking for something not too big, somewhere around 13 inch. and I don't game on laptops, mainly just browse. Also looking for a comfortable premium feel. I honestly can't find better reviews for the feel on the Surface Book 2's keyboard feel, touchpad & display.



Are these results okay? (Pingplotter Graph)

2 weeks ago

Hey guys, I've been monitoring my ping for a while and have been trying new things with the share excess. Just to keep it short, I wanted to know if these results are okay for gaming. When gaming is it normal for the ping graph to go close to the yellow every so and so shown in the picture, or should it look different while gaming? I'm just curious, if there's a problem I'd like to see if I can fix it, but if it's normal all is well. Thanks for reading. :D



When gaming




When doing nothing


R1 Noise?

16 March 2018 - 02:56 PM

I'm not sure if it's just me, but the r1 is making some kind of noise coming from somewhere. I haven't dropped it or damaged it in any way, but the best sound to describe it in my own words is uhhh fishing and reeling something in? Also not sure if this is the right term but coil whine? It's hardly noticeable when gaming and having the tv on, but is anyone else experiencing this? I can only hear it when my room is silent.

Do different kinds of modems matter?

09 March 2018 - 03:42 PM

I was wondering if your type of modem matters when gaming since I'm always looking for ways to improve my connection or ping whatever you want to call it, lets just say gameplay as smooth as possible. What are some type or specific modems you guys recommend? Does your isp matter in this type of situation? I know some people will say if it ain't broke, there's no need to fix or change, but honestly this modem looks like a game boy color and it has to go in the trash (time for a new updated one)

I have Charter Spectrum and live in Minnesota Duluth, I think my parents are using this ugly beatup modem made by Ubee I think it's called?, this thing looks like trash and it's small, so I'm probably going to do some research on modems and thought I'd have your guys' input on this and personal preferences from experience with this type of stuff.

I've seen this topic here, and will also be checking on this ping plotter everyone has been recommending.



Have a few questions in general

15 February 2018 - 12:52 PM

Hey guys, I have some questions in general to ask for you people who are knowledgeable on this topic. Yesterday I was playing some cod games and I believe I was playing on a dedicated server (unsure) and it had the options like temp ban etc., but not the allow & deny. Under the host depricator the id was 7dd11ae56e1cd9de and I had an amazingly good insane connection. I was wondering how do you know where the dedicated server is and is there a way to get the same host or dedicated server for sure all the time?


Usually when changing the profile in the r1 router I select the cod ultimate, but I noticed sometimes your home location is set to the middle of the ocean and sometimes it maybe does not move at all (maybe). I'm not sure if it changed the home location when I selected the profile and the home location didn't move to the middle of the ocean. Is there a difference when you rely on ping assist and your home location is set to the middle of the ocean or where you live in the state?


Is there a list or possible way to know where all dedicated servers are like a local or nearest server? Usually when player to player hosting there are lots of people who mod lobbies and cheat in the game which is why I most of the time prefer dedicated servers since there is less cheating from what I noticed + I love server connections.


Thanks for taking a look at this topic :D
