Got myself the dell inspiron 24 5400 all in one from dell recently on the ebay 20% off.
Had it sitting in box for over a week or so and set it up yesterday and when i get the chance hoping to add apps to it etc and accounts of mine email etc.
Im just curious when setting up new pc and Windows for first time are these in s mode?
I know a laptop i got that i still partly set up is in s mode, i think it's to do with Microsoft Windows.
So am i right in saying the dell will be the same?
Why do they give or set things in s mode i mean windows, as your restricted to what Microsoft provides ie can't get Google etc.
Do many actually keep there devices on s mode and why?
I believe the s mode is to stay save but come on your very restricted I believe in that mode.
Anyway once i get a bit of free time no kids or wife to annoy me i assuming the pc is in s mode also and there is no harm in getting out of s mode.
When i partly set up both just to make sure lol they was working and do the adding stuff later.
It did ask if i wanted Windows 10 or 11, i picked 10 for now as 11 is just out and i believe i can update this anytime.
I never selected extras that dell offered like office 365 as there probably similar things out there for free or cheap, also virus software etc again ain't the freebie ones ok?
Or are there some good deals around, i know when getting the laptop from harvey norman guy was not pushy but said he could offer me office 365 at good price.
I said no and probably ir be x10 the price there anyway, in fact not sure what office 365 is for and what use i have with it. Maybe doing my resume that's about it.
But i be interested to know do i need some sort of virus or protection or am i already protected by Windows 10.
If I need something what should i look for be it free or buying one preferably on a good deal.
Regarding the dell inspiron 24 5400 pc the connections at back can anyone explain the uses for each from left to right.
Obviously far left is power and im sure there are usb 2 and 3 what else does this have or what use have they and difference ie usb 2 or 3.
I did put in a doogle type thing into one usb 3 for the wireless mouse and keyboard.
I just hate it when they give minimal set up or info booklets on devices these days and that you need a magnifying glass to read it.
Obviously having got a new laptop and pc and if I need more protection then i will benefit on whatever is recommended, as im sure i can use on both devices.
Also little off subject, but this pc never come with a dvd/ cd internal writer or player so was thinking of the dell external one keeping it same brand as pc.
Im in no rush to get and possibly try and get on a deal but how does it compare to others of same.
It be mostly for copying a cd i might have or even listening or adding music to pc.
I buy a lot of blu rays but i don't watch them on a pc is this not a common thing these days for an external drive to have blu ray playability or are they just pricey.
