  3. Re: New laptop for school and gaming - advice please

    The specs are very nice and it should game very well. More than I'd spend on a nephew but that's your call.
    Can't comment on the brand, haven't had much to do with it.

  4. Re: Storage Spaces or disk management to mirror drives.

    It's kinda how I feel too, the mirror thing though - it's just me trying to mitigate the reality which is that I'll use one drive, do a backup or two, then never bother to backup again rendering the...

    Re: Power inverter

    If you were to use an inverter you want a pure sine wave model not a modified sine wave one like you listed. They are not good for electronics and may damage your pc.

    But if you hook up a charger...

    Re: New Washing Macine (warning, boring to some)

    What puts me off front loaders is bending down to load and empty them. I'd want to lift it up a foot or two if I owned one. But then I'm quite tall and the world mostly caters to short people (not a...

    Re: Should I defrag SSD?

    Defragging doesn't even make much sense on a modern hard drive, unless it's very full and is your boot drive and maybe not even then.
    The OS does a pretty good job of managing the drive in the...
