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!

Chess engine: CorChess 05.12.2016

CorChess is a clone of Stockfish maintained for better performance on long time controls, trying at least partially to fill the gap between regular tests and demands of correspondence players.

These builds are currently around 8.5% faster than compiles.

Official releases of CorChess will be published once a year.
CorChess 1.0 is expected to be published in October 2017.

My main idea is to improve the following scalability of Stockfish 8.
I hope that CorChess will be:

 bad in blitz (5+0.05);
 solid in rapid (1500+15);
 monster in correspondence play.
