  1. Hi, So I'm in the UK looking for a thin and light 13" laptop with some graphics capability for light gaming. These 2 HP laptops seem perfect, but I don't know which one to get, so to people who already have a 360° hinge, How useful really is that flexibility? Use cases that I can see are that the X360 would be good for watching films, and casual sofa use as a tablet. I am a student so I might also take advantage of the pen capability, but I'm not sure whether I'd like it or not. The other factors I'm considering in regards to these 2: X360 advantages: 2x the storage (512 vs. 256), HDMI port, Displayport 1.4 compatible. Normal 13" advantages: Fingerprint sensor, better battery life, £50 cheaper Also, is the Ryzen R7 2700u with Vega 10 better than an i5-8250u with an MX150? The X360 has the ryzen. Thanks for any help!
  2. Hi, I'm looking to build a cheap office PC, in as small a form factor as possible. For the AM4 socket, Mini-ITX boards are well over twice the price of Micro-ATX boards, so I'm forced to go with the latter. Does anyone have any recommendations of slim mico-ATX cases? I do NOT need space for a gpu at all. The Inwin BK series looks good, however it is not available in the UK. Please give me any suggestions, but ideally a price under £50 would be nice. Thanks!

  5. Hi, I’m looking for a laptop. My budget is £1000 (in UK). I would like; - At least an MX150 GPU, or anything better - An IPS screen with good colour accuracy - I do a lot of photo editing - Something relatively thin/not bulky, without a flashy design (ie. not a gaming-style laptop) - 8GB RAM, i5 7/8000U, 256GB SSD (so far all laptops at that price point I have found have all of these) I have done some research, but haven’t found anything that ticks all those boxes yet. Help would be nice. Thanks
  6. I'm not stupid, if that's what you're asking. What benefits would,say, avast have over windows defender?
  7. Title, I hate how much bloat and speed reduction Avast etc introduce to my PC.
  8. Hi, I've got a 128gb SSD and a 1TB HDD. I would like to know how i set it up so files etc go in my HDD while windows and just a few programs/steam games go in my ssd. What do I do to achieve this? Thanks

    Can I have some advice on how to listen to music?

    Obviously, but currently I only have access to a single MP3 because I just reinstalled Windows, and cannot tell the difference between them - I want to make sure I have it set up right for when I get my FLAC songs back downloaded off of pledge music when my internet speeds up, as I will likely forget then. Should have made it clearer sorry.
  10. I bought my PC parts in Black Friday sales 2015, and as part of a discount because I spent so much I got £30 Corsair VOID RGB Wireless Headphones. They are wonderful, but I am not sure what settings to use for listening to music. In the Corsair software, there are a bunch of audio prefigurations (Pure Direct, Bass Boost, Movie Theater, Clear Chat, FPS Competition), as well as the option of Dolby Surround. Obviously I want my music to sound as good as possible. 2 questions: 1. Should I keep the audio setting on Pure Direct, which I have it on at the moment? 2. Should I turn on/off Dolby Surround for best music quality? Thanks for any help.
  11. I built my first PC ~14 months ago. The PSU I am using is the Corsair RM650x. At night, I turn the power to the PC off at the wall switch (after it has shut down of course). When I turn the power back on in the morning - NOT the computer, just the wall switch - I have been noticing for a while I hear a little pop/crack, but nothing else is wrong and the pc works fine. Just 2 days ago though, I happened to be looking in the direction of my PSU when I turned it on, and the pop was accompanied by a spark emanating from the power supply. The computer still turns on and works fine. The spark happens every time I turn it on at the wall, but only if it has been off at the wall for an extended period of time. Does anyone have any idea of what could be wrong/how serious this is? Thanks for any help.

    I will take photos/video about.... never. Lol. Would 16GB be enough for a decent sized itunes library, apps like news, weather, evernote, etc, and 1 or 2 games/films on itunes?
