  1. I have been going through the videos today too, and have noticed it really is in a league of its own. Thank you
  2. What I have been finding in my search. They are mainly just simple fitness trackers at best.
  3. I got my wife an Apple watch 3 for christmas last year and have been thinking about getting one myself. The cost is obviously a bit prohibitive, and I was wondering if there were any good alternatives to an Apple brand smartwatch. I am mainly looking for the ability to keep track of my health a little better as I am getting older. I like the newest one's ability to take an ECG and read blood O2 levels along with the fitness tracking. If anyone has some recommendations I would certainly appreciate them. TIA
  4. I have been looking at these, and it seems I am being pushed to the higher end. Is there anything in particular I should look for in a laptop for classes? Or is it more that skimping will just mean a slower less responsive system?
  5. Thanks for the information, this seems to be the common theme with IT in general I have found. I don't believe this will be a problem for me as I enjoy learning new things. I am on of those people who watches PBS and NOVA rather than sitcoms.
  6. Per the title and my post in Laptop's I am going to start this fall at my local CC on a networking program. I was hoping I could ask anyone who has restarted their lives like this and/or taken these types of courses what I should expect. I am going to try to take as much online as possible, however I am sure I will be in classes quite a bit. Any tips or helpful information will be gladly accepted.
  7. As the title says I am heading back to college this fall to finally pursue a degree. Aviation has unfortunately not worked out too well for me and I believe it is time for a shift. My local CC has some good looking two year CS degrees and the networking is looking particularly interesting. With this in mind I am sure some kind of mobile computing system would be very helpful going forward. Thus I turn to you to help me find a good path forward. I currently have no laptop or tablet that is exclusively mine at this time, and I know the CC uses a program called Blackboard for assignments and other things. My wife has an 8 year old HP that is due for a refurbishment that I am thinking of replacing and taking it over for my use, though its troubles has me worried it may be on its last legs. So if anyone can give me some hints/tips and helpful remarks I would appreciate it. I would especially enjoy any helpful information from anyone who has gone through this before around my age. I am more than a little bit nervous obviously. TIA for all your help. Edit : Houston TX. Have a Micro Center close by and trying to keep it under 1000$
  8. First I hope this is the right section for this, if not let me know and I will fix it. I have been into aviation all my life and even flew R/C aircraft for years when younger. I hold a private pilots license as well and have been eyeing the drone market the last few years. I am thinking of getting into the hobby and would like some advice on a good starter quad-copter that either has a camera already mounted, or that can accept one. I may use this to also apply for my UAV certificate to add to my PPL. I am not interested in racing at all and would like to keep it below 200$ US if at all possible. TIA
  9. Thanks for the input everyone. What kind of features should I look for besides a high refresh? I am also looking at a 27” screen.
  10. I meant Below Zero, its early. I am starting to lean that way as well, BZ is like 60FPS on eye bleed settings so 1440P would actually be downgrading. Plus I just dont have the money to always have the latest and greatest GPU. This was reward for me due to busting my ass this year at two different jobs.
  11. I recently upgraded my GPU to a 5700 XT and am thinking of upgrading my monitor. Currently I mainly play Astroneer, Subnautica Below Zero, Cold Waters, World of Warships, and a few others. My main question is should I bump up to 1440P or stick with high refresh 1080p? I have an older 1080 now and would like to keep it for a second monitor. Thanks for the help!
