    Re: Anti virus

    The price for 5 devices for 1 year looks good $39 but for 2 years it really goes up to $138.

    Re: Windows 11 leaked

    I wonder how they will roll this out, Like the original Win 10 preview releases via an ISO file or will you just get it as a preview build on top of Win 10 preview??

    Agree HPs are good. Had a few paper jams over the years but not too frequent, maybe one every 6 months or so. Bought a HP IP to parallel printer server to go with it.
