Not that much more than an RTX 2070 GPU in today's market. Good deal!
12/06/2021 - 14:55
Yep. That machine is for portable productivity with decent battery life and a better screen than many budget machines with 300nits. For...

Haven't checked specifically, but I would guess half the performance of a GTX1650 (which is near half that of GTX1660ti if IIRC), but twice...

For a cheap powerful-ish 14" this looks like great value. Have one silver and one 'eden' on the site. Inspiron 14 5402 - Intel i7-1165G7,...

Thanks @doweyy, and you are correct! 1.5% still a decent perk. Love your work!

Argh. You're right. 1.5% using CR when I purchased 3 minutes ago. Maybe OP can update the post to suggest the best option? EDIT: "New Xbox"...

Thanks. I might give this a try and will post if I find a good solution

Sign up controversy aside, I read the linked deal on data security fears. It appears this just needs internet access. Anyone tried running...

Good to hear! Well worth it

I don't know specs on current models, but paid a lot for the 2ch 650 with the 2nd camera internally a few years ago. I got the battery...

There's a link in the post for code requests. Same issue for most of us it seems

Good advice. In my case I did read through T&C's rather than my usual BS tickbox answer (our biggest lie on the internet is that we read...

Thanks for the tip. Lead me to find the M8 Gen 2 WWAN which works out to around $217 after Cashrewards. As it looks like M8 wifi is on...

I'm certain it's onboard. Have rewired the damn thing many times trying to solve the issue. Linked...

AX 200 is soldered onboard, but yes an M.2 nic might also work. Concerned I can't earth that like it could a standalone card and riser in...

I have not tried that, but I'm running a 1tb Gen 4 M.2 Nvme drive as my primary SSD so that might halve the drive throughput (3500mbps is...
