Davinci Resolve runs great on Mac. If you’re not keen to learn a new OS though, that’s understandable - you could stick with Windows in...

Seeing as you’re not gaming, the new M1 Mac Mini would be a really good pick for graphic design and video editing. AFAIK nothing comes...

How do these compare to Samsung B-die with similar speed/timings?
19/12/2020 - 19:56
Tried these in store today - the build quality and feel is ridiculously good. Makes the Sony and Bose stuff feel positively dinky in...

Comes out to ~$305 shipped, the 970 Evo Plus is worth the extra ~$75 for TLC flash and faster controller IMO.

You'd probably be right 5 years ago, but not any more.

Paid ~$600 for a ML350 Gen9, threw in 8x8TB drives, and I now run Proxmox on it. Glorious Edit: I also have a couple of leftover HP...

NR200P has better airflow and is easier to build in, but takes up more space on your desk. It's also cheaper. Up to you.

Can't speak for this case in particular, but the SF750's cables are too short for most tower cases.

Where's the $1,000,000+ option? I think all university students should aspire to this standard.
31/10/2020 - 22:08
hahahahahaha, this sounds pretty accurate

You've gone from a child to a grandfather in 26 years? Congratulations, I think?

Can just take a picture with phone and upload. E.g.
28/10/2020 - 13:45
Hm, okay. Any chance you could post photos of what the fuzziness looks like? I picked up a Dell 27” 4K panel recently and I think there...

125% scaling on a 4K monitor is pretty small - 150% is equivalent space to 1440p at 100%. I’d definitely use 150% on 4K 32” for the...

Large corporations aren't your friends. They'd without a doubt screw you over if it made them money, so I see no issues with doing the same...

Right now I've got two monitors, one LG 27GL850 (1440p, IPS, 144Hz) for games + general use, and a Dell U2720Q (4K, IPS, 60Hz) for photo...

I used to have a 24" 1440p - set Windows display scaling to 125% and it looks pretty nice. Currently use 27" 1440p with 125% scaling. I'm a...

Depends on the OS... Display scaling on macOS is pretty much flawless. Recent versions of Windows 10 are pretty good - most applications...

You're not gonna get low latency, high quality, wireless audio for $60. Get a decent pair of wired cans instead
27/09/2020 - 18:46
If you're not gaming, refresh rate shouldn't really matter. 60Hz is fine. At 27" size, I definitely wouldn't get a 1080p monitor, it's too...

Daily controversial comment: 1080Ti had more VRAM for the same price 3.5 years ago
18/09/2020 - 18:02
Yep, am aware of this. Not too much of a problem if you plan your big purchase a month or two in advance. Failing that, just buy another...
18/09/2020 - 02:10
Do you mean running macOS inside a VM, or hosting VMs on macOS? Apple Silicon won’t support x86 virtualisation, so you’ll be left out...
17/09/2020 - 12:22
Yup, this is exactly the way to go - I signed up for a Suncorp bank account a while back pretty much solely for this reason, haha
16/09/2020 - 21:46
Yup, recently used 4x $500 gift cards on an order. IIRC there's a maximum of 5 gift cards per order, but you can get around this by buying...

JB does 10% off Macs somewhat regularly, and it's nice being able to price match at Apple - their 14 days no questions asked returns are...
