You're best getting a Macbook Pro then. Slim, light, good build quality, prestige, good support (get Apple Care+), etc. The main thing is...

IMHO spending $4k on a laptop for "90% of the time on bed browsing web/ watching youtube / movies and facebook etc" is really not worth it....

I have a 4k monitor and 1080p monitor. Win10 scaling is very good - each monitor gets its own DPI scaling so it doesn't look "blown up" on...

It means install the official application from the Synology store and not run it in a container (which is what Docker is). Don't worry -...

I've never had to redo shared folder permissions after updating Plex, just as a personal anecdote and can't imagine why it's different
25/07/2019 - 13:43
Just be aware that for hardware acceleration you need to run Plex natively (i.e no Docker) and you need an active Plex Pass subscription. I...

At least the Tesla's Sentry mode will catch anyone keying the car. There's been a few cases in the States of cops finding the key-ers from...

No, Nintendo hasn't added support for Bluetooth audio in the previous Switch and I doubt they will now. Which is a real bummer because...

We've been having fun with [Crawl](https://www.nintendo.com/games/detail/crawl-switch/) lately. Thought it would get repetitive but it's...

Yep, definitely. They fixed the BIOS issues in the A485 but refuse to do anything about the E485. I managed to stop the random crashes...

Wait until you get the resume-from-suspend crashes. My GRUB boot parameters look like a dog's breakfast because I've had one of these from...

I was about to pull the trigger on this laptop and then it disappeared from the site. Asked support about where it's gone (no mention in...

Surely they can't imprison you if you tell them you "forgot" the password right? People do that in court all the time! "I can't recall...

I've had two 300ZXs and well... I replaced the timing belt on the last one over a day, said "(profanity) this is way too difficult", and...

About two weeks ago, I was trying to find one but it was really difficult to find stock. Big W was showing none in like a 300km radius and...

You are a champion! I'll order the panel and upgrade the laptop

Have you done this yourself and is it a straight swap? Contemplating doing it because the screens on these things are pretty rubbish
12/03/2019 - 08:29
If anyone is considering one of these to run Linux on I would not do it. You need between 2-5 different GRUB config options to get the...

You wouldn't hit CPU bottleneck at all. This is a 6C/12T processor at 3.9GHz. If games bottleneck on this then there's no hope for most...

It was incredibly flaky last night but I managed to snag one for $304 with delivery. We'll see how it goes. I went into a JB store at...

Back down. Made it to payment with Paypal before it just shit the bed and wouldn't process it? Tried several more times as it was in my...

No, and replacing the keyboard with a backlit one doesn't work either
07/11/2018 - 10:12
IMHO, it's a little bit bulky / not great battery life if you're just using it for university. A similar priced ultrabook might be a better...
07/11/2018 - 10:11
If you're are a university student, you can get it for free from there. If you're not, it's possible to purchase grey market keys for...

I can't get it to do multi-device. Have to disconnect my phone to hook it up to the laptop and vice-versa.

They price matched $399. Wouldn't do $349. I had a lot of JB HiFi gift cards which is why I went

Just picked one of these up from JB Hi-Fi price match. Really good headphones but I don't recommend hooking up Google Assistant. It is so...

I was in charge of IT at one time and the head boss asked me to look into one of the (about-to-be-fired) Sales guy's work email. Found out...

There's some missing table in the BIOS so getting things to boot was awful. That and kernel 4.15 was really the only thing that worked with...
