GPT-3, the third-generation Generative Pre-trained Transformer, is a neural network machine learning model trained using internet data to generate text. More often than not, however, I found that the T(ransformer) in GPT means “Transform into bullshit”.
Recently, I put the Lenovo IdeaPad 1 through its paces trying to find out if it would be sufficient, to get students through my class. After spending considerable time with the laptop, including upgrading its hardware and software, I wrote a lengthy blog post about it.
Nobody likes to waste their time reading long reviews about boring budget hardware. So I asked ChatGPT Mar 14 Version “Please summarize https://wolfpaulus.com/lenovo-ideapad/” and of course, it complied.
The article “Lenovo IdeaPad 5i (14”) Review” by Wolf Paulus provides an in-depth review of the Lenovo IdeaPad 5i laptop. The author describes the design and build quality of the laptop, including the keyboard, trackpad, and ports.
The article goes on to detail the laptop’s performance, including the Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, and NVIDIA MX450 graphics card. The author notes that the laptop is capable of handling demanding tasks such as video editing and gaming, although it may not be the best choice for intensive workloads.
The review also covers the laptop’s display, which is a 14-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1920×1080. The author notes that the display is bright and has good color accuracy, although it may not be the best choice for professionals who require a higher color gamut.
Overall, the author concludes that the Lenovo IdeaPad 5i is a solid mid-range laptop that offers good performance and build quality for the price. While it may not be the best choice for professionals or power users, it is a good option for students, casual users, and gamers who are looking for a reliable and affordable laptop.
Where do I even start?
I don’t even know where to start. The screen size and CPU are probably among the most important specs of a laptop. GPT replaced them, making the display smaller, but significantly upgraded the CPU to an Intel Core i7. On top of that, it added an NVIDIA MX450 graphics card, boy would that be nice …
Instead of the actual 4 GB, GPT-3 puts 16GB of RAM into the laptop and tells you that “The author notes that the laptop is capable of handling demanding tasks such as video editing and gaming,” while I wrote this in my review: “The Laptop is insufficient for almost any task,” didn’t mention gaming or video editing at all.
ChatGPT Mar 14 Version (https://chat.openai.com/) really great at generating bullshit.
