Blog "Chess Engines Diary" - needs a new laptop for chess engine tests

♔ We use for testing only 2 old laptops:
1. Acer - Intel Core i3-3217U ( 5 years old)
2. Lenovo - Intel Core i7-4710MQ is over 3 years old (He works 24 hours a day)

♕♞ A modern laptop that will be designed only for chess engine tests costs (with software) about $ 1000-1200 (4200-4500 PLN). We will no longer invest private money, and chess engine testing costs are big. That is why we are starting the collection for the purchase of a laptop for testing.

♕ Our blog "Chess Engines Diary" is visited by around 2,000-3.000 users daily. If only everyone paid 1 dollar - we will pay the required amount in one day!

Penguin 13 - PGN viewer. New version

Penguin - game

Penguin is a PGN viewer, reader, editor and desktop board for the review and analysis of games of Chess. 

Game analysis
It can interface with UCI chess engines to analyse game positions. It uses a database of opening positions from the world's premier tournaments to display the most popular lines of opening play.
Penguin is a freeware program for Windows, and is available from this web page. Use Penguin to Store and replay your games and the games of the professionals. Launch a quick chess board from your desktop. Analyse game positions with the help of a UCI game engine and identify the most promising sequences of moves. Study the lines of opening play favoured by the top professionals of today. Penguin is the effort of one single programmer. My objective was to create a compact, non-commercial product that could stand alongside the existing editors and offer some original functionality. I hope that you will find it an enjoyable and useful product and that it will help you improve your skill at Chess.
