Since you’re here...

... we have a small favour to ask. More people, like you, are reading and supporting our blog: "Chess Engines Diary". And unlike many other sites and blogs, we made the choice to keep our articles open for all, regardless of where they live or what they can afford to pay.

We hope you will consider supporting us today. We need your support to continue to exist, because good entries are more and more work time. Every reader contribution, however big or small, is so valuable. Support "Chess Engines Diary" even a small amount– and it only takes a minute. Thank you.

needs a new laptop for chess engine tests

♔ We use for testing only 2 old laptops:
1.  Acer - Intel Core i3-3217U 3,9 GB Memory , Windows 10 x64 ( 5 years old)
2. Lenovo - Intel Core i7-4710MQ with 7,9 GB Memory, Windows 10 64-bit is over 3 years old (He works 24 hours a day)
MSI - i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50GHz z 7,9 GB RAM  - broken, unsuitable for repair.

♕♞ 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 users daily. If only everyone paid 1 dollar - we will pay the required amount in one day!
