    Power Mac G4 Micro ATX Project

    Nice! I'm so excited to see the finished result!

    How is playing the Switch in sunlight?

    Oh yeah, you'll be more than fine for that.

    Power Mac G4 Micro ATX Project

    This is looking cool! I've seen a few projects like this, and I like to see everyone's different takes on it. Got any idea what PC parts you're gonna load into it?

    How is playing the Switch in sunlight?

    I've got one, and seriously, I haven't noticed it to be dim outside. It's brighter than the 3DS, if you have ever used one of those outside. As for charging, I don't have any figures, but if you have a USB power bank, you'll still be able to keep on going, and anyway, with games like Zelda, you're still going to get like 3 hours of battery life. I can't imagine anyone sitting outside for more than 3 hours xD.

    What should I review next?

    Do a retro reflection/use/attempt of use of dial-up, the pains, the speeds, and using it in the office.

    Headset Problem

    Hmm...they look really cheap. It could be just the result of a cheap purchase. If the AUX cable is detachable, try using another AUX cable, and if that doesn't work, try them on another computer. If that doesn't work, just get a new headset.

    Skiing or Snowboarding?

    I have absolutely no idea xD. I'm going with a few of my close friends, so we'll all end up doing the same thing.

    Skiing or Snowboarding?

    Howdy y'all. I'm going on a ski trip in a couple of months, but I have a big decision to make: do I pick skiing, or do I pick snowboarding? I'm only going to be there for a week, so I want to be able to pick it up relatively quickly. All opinions welcome! -Alpha
  9. Try seeing if there's a BIOS update for your computer from the PC manufacturer's website. Try another thing: go through the BIOS, and make sure that the settings aren't set to boot from the iGPU (if there is one).

    Best cheap reliable 2tb HDD

    Personally, I'd pick the Seagate, as it matches your needs, and it is a very reliable hard drive.

    your opinion on Edge...

    I don't use Edge, simply for the fact that I need bookmark syncing across my desktop, my laptop, my phone and my tablet. When Edge integrates bookmark syncing, and it's on Android, then I'd reconsider. It is a good browser, I might add. Better than Google Chrome, at least PS. I use Opera

    Best cheap reliable 2tb HDD

    If the drive is brand new, it'll be covered under the manufacturer's warranty anyway, as I've found that PC component retailers' warranties never count for anything. They charge you for 'diagnostics' before sending it off, and charging you.

    Best cheap reliable 2tb HDD

    I've just done a search on Amazon UK (I'm assuming that you're happy to buy online, please correct me if I'm wrong), and if you need the 7200rpm speeds, you're limited to Seagate. I found a BarraCuda drive, just here.

    Best cheap reliable 2tb HDD

    I don't think the OP will need the Red series' features. If you don't care about speed, go for Green. If you want a great drive with decent performance, but is also cheap, go for WD Blue. If you badly want a powerful HDD (which, by reading your needs, you'll be fine) there is the Black. WD Blue. I've got no idea about the speed of the drive, but honestly, I believe you'll be limited by the SATA bus on the mobo instead of the drive.

    Which laptop will you choose?

    I bought a new XPS 15 9560 a couple of weeks ago. I can confirm that it is a beautiful laptop, with all-day battery life (if you don't play games lol), great performance for battery life, a damn comfortable keyboard, a beautiful display (with touch too), and a fingerprint sensor (at least on my model). Thunderbolt 3 is beautiful on it as well. I don't have a current use for it yet, but I'm looking forward to using it.
