Thanks, had a look at the VAVA but the reviews were suspiciously positive (and a reviewer for the same hub on Amazon US talked about...

Hi all, So far I've had 3x Type-C hubs that were supposedly well-reviewed and all of them have failed in under a month :(. Looking for...

Much, much better thermals. The Air doesn't have the fan directly "connected" to the heatsink and as a result, it really starts to throttle...

MacBook Pro imo. Rock solid stability, great resale value, great trackpad and (finally) no butterfly keyboard. Warranty is also easier to...

Only $30 at TGG Midland! Guy said it's showing $49 on the site but they (Midland) were selling them for $30. Had plenty in a box near the...

Can confirm - brother has had one for ~6 months and wishes he kept his Z2. Much, much slower than an Xperia Z2 and has been gradually...

Google doesn't even show up in power usage for me. I've disabled OK Google detection, and others with drain seem to have it enabled. [My...

That's my plan...my monitors, laptop, TV all run at 60Hz, so don't want that all to be ruined by a 90Hz phone!

If you pinch to zoom out, it'll switch to the wide-angle camera.
21/05/2020 - 22:17
Update: can confirm the Google Type-C to 3.5 adapter works (thanks @lookingForCheapDeal), and the Fiio also works (had a dodgy Type-C to...

Has anyone been able to get audio through Type-C (apart from using the horrible included earphones)? Couldn't output to an Apple Type-C...

I upgraded/sidegraded to this from a Mate 20 Pro. Without any pixel peeping, the camera seems better overall. Much faster to take the first...

Have you tried turning off the smart Power saver/disabling it for messenger? Also, have you gone through all of the updates? I haven't had...

I have the 800A, and that has no trouble starting my 2008 Aurion (same engine).
21/05/2020 - 12:16
Yeah (not sure if it happens everywhere?), was quite surprised. Not as cheap as this deal with OW pricematch but you get 14-day returns...

Definitely varies a lot. I got mine for $3,300 after education discount from the Apple Store (physical) vs 3,479 on their online education...
20/05/2020 - 17:06
We're actually getting a better deal after exchange rates/GST with Apple. E.g. the 16" MBP in this configuration is $2799 in the US, which...
19/05/2020 - 12:19
In other words, this is currently cheaper than a much lesser-specced XPS. I can't imagine the higher-resolution i9 model coming down to...
18/05/2020 - 16:42
The new XPS 15 without a touchscreen, a 6-core i7 (vs 8-core i9 in this) and 1920x1200 display comes to the same price ($200 more expensive...

The mAh capacity of the battery in the device it's charging will also be quoted at 3.7V, so the only losses should be due to efficiency...

The Acer in [this](https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/537322) post is *very* good value; light, great battery life, 512GB storage, a...
16/05/2020 - 23:38
Definitely worth considering the 16" MBP if size isn't an issue. Great GPU in the base model (5300m is noticeably faster than the 1650 in...
16/05/2020 - 23:03
Very good so far - not quite as good as the Huawei but that thing was ridiculous. The inbuilt battery saving is quite aggressive though, so...

Oppo Reno 5G all the way IMO. Has a flagship Snapdragon 855 CPU, 2GB extra RAM, double the storage, 5G and no notch. Also a local 2-year...

Switched to this from my Mate 20 Pro. Overall quite happy, but Color OS can be annoying (removing small things from Android - e.g. setting...

The 2014 Air shouldn't be slow at all - even the version with 4GB RAM (though, you might be creeping on the limit with 10 tabs in Chrome)....
20/04/2020 - 17:00
I'd definitely consider the replacement if they're offering it - mine are absolutely silent with NC on.
