  1. I have used 3:2 and 16:10 and got so used to it, that when I look at a 16:9 laptop, I find it doesn't look great.
  2. Hi all, I am looking for either a replacement, or something I will be using alongside my MacBook Air 2019. I like my laptops thin, so, I'm looking for an Ultrabook, really. Here is my list of requirements: Thin and light; Good trackpad and keyboard (essential for me); Preferably 13 inch size; Upgradeable NVME SSD; (would be REALLY nice to have); Upgradeable memory; (Would be really nice to have, and I wouldn't mind giving up my "thin and light" requirement slightly for upgradeable RAM, for "futureproofing") At least a 16:10 screen; (3:2 is better for me, however); Quad-core 8th gen core i5; (minimum) Great battery life; (Very important) Up to £1000; I'm not even sure what I want exists, and I have been looking. So far, I find the Surface Laptop 3 most appealing, however, I would like to know if you guys know any laptops that would better fit my needs. Many thanks, Bruno
  3. Not quite. The motherboard tray is not where I need more standoffs, if that makes sense
  4. I am okay with that, unless it gets too janky. And it would be nice to still have 3.5 inch hard drive mounting.
  5. Hello all, I have purchased this EE-ATX motherboard, which is bigger than anything I've handled, apart from server boards in rack-mount chassis. I tried to fit this in my Corsair 450D and, with a lot of jankyness, I managed to fit it, however, it's being held by litterally 3 screws, on the lower left part of the motherboard, anI do not feel comfortable running it like this, even though I technically could. I'd like to spend the extra money, and go for something that supports EE-ATX, and to be quite honest, given that it is for a lab server, I do not mind if it's not pretty and that it doesn't have a glass panel. Also, again, given that it's something that won't be touched a lot, the cheaper, the better. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot.
  6. Thanks a lot, I think I fixed it. I'm not sure if this is the right way of doing it, but it does work. Here's what I did: in the Router, I marked LAN 4 as untagged in VLAN ID 10, and left the same port as Tagged in VLAN ID 11. Then, in the Switch, I removed all ports from VLAN ID 1, which can't be deleted, and where as both VLAN ID 10 and 11 had Port 1 Tagged (as it is the one connected to the switch), I marked it Untagged in VLAN ID 10. Is this the correct way of doing it? Router: Switch: Port 4, in the Router, is connected to Port 1, in the Switch.
  7. Does port 1 not have to be marked as Tagged, as it's the one connected to the Router?
  8. I'm sorry, but I'm pretty much new to the subject, so, I'm sorry if I seem useless. This is what I have now, after updating the VLANS: As you can see, the tagged port is 1, the one connected to the Router, then, each VLAN has its own untaged ports. All ports in VLAN ID 1 are untagged. Would I need to mark every untagged port as tagged, except for VLAN ID 1?
  9. I did it all over again, replaced the VLANS 1 and 3 with 10 and 11, and got rid of 4, as it wasn't used. I then, reset the Switch and configured the VLANS again. I left VLAN ID 1 as default (all 8 ports untagged), and created the VLANS 10 and 11. All ports working as expected, however, I still can't access the switch after configuring it. The only way I can access it, is by plugging it to the LAN 2 port of the Router, which is an untagged port member of now VLAN ID 10.
  10. Hello all, I have acquired a Netgear GS108Ev3 Managed Switch, and after researching about VLANS, I was able to configure the Switch to use two VLANS that I use on my network, which, in my OpenWRT Router, are VLAN ID 1 and VLAN ID 3. Here's how they are configured in the OpennWRT Router: Ports 1, 2 and 3 are Untagged for VLAN ID 1, which is for the main LAN, which uses 10.230.0.x, and Port 4 is Tagged for VLAN ID 1, 3 and 4. Port 4 is the one connected to the Switch, so, I tagged it in all VLANS. VLAN 1 and VLAN 3 are the only ones used, but I still added a VLAN ID 4, in case I wanted to configure another one. Now, in the Switch, here's how I configured the ports: Port 1, in the Switch, is the one conected to the router, so, I tagged it in all VLANS, also. I used the same VLAN IDs in the switch, because as far as my understanding goes, it's how the Router knows which traffic is from which VLAN? Please correct me if I'm saying something wrong. My problem is, the way the Switch and Router are currently configured, it all works as intended. For example, if I plug a computer to port 2 to 4, on the Switch, I'm connected to VLAN ID 1, and get a 10.230.0.x address, and if I'm connected to port 5 to 7, I'm connected to VLAN ID 3, and therefore, I get a 10.230.2.x address, however, I cannot access the Switch web interface anymore. OpenWRT DHCP always gives the same IP to all the devices, and the IP of the switch has never changed even after resetting it multiple times when I was learning how to set it up, so I know it wouldn't change, but why can't I access it?
  11. I'd go for the 3600, as I don't find the 3600X to be worth the price. If I were looking at a 3600X, I'd rather spend a bit more, and get the 3700X, but if it's just gaming, the 3600 is perfectly fine. If you upgrade the CPU to a 3600 and the GPU to an RTX 2070, you'll see a massive difference in games. Also, just to make sure you are aware, you'll need a new motherboard for the new(er) Ryzen chips, as they are a different socket. Ryzen chips, from generation 1 to 3, whith is the latest, as of now, use socket AM4. I would get something like a good B450 motherboard. B450 motherboards were meant for 2nd gen Ryzen, and will need a BIOS upgrade to work with 3rd gen Ryzen. You can try and find a shop that will update the BIOS for you, or, if the motherboard features some kind of BIOS Flashback feature, you can probably upgrade the BIOS yourself, without a compatible CPU. I did the same to get my X370 ASUS motherboard, which is meant for 1st gen Ryzen, to work with my Ryzen 7 3700X. Also, you will need new DDR4 RAM.
  12. Yes, you definitely need a new CPU. Bulldozer is just obsolete, now. I would definitely upgrade to something like a Ryzen 3600, for example. The Graphics Card is still decent enough, but could also use an upgrade. If you can't upgrade both, I would upgrade the CPU first.
  13. Because there is good things to say aboug Apple products. Did Apple screw Linus over with the iMac? Yes. Is the iPhone 11 Pro an awesome phone? Also yes. Simple.
  14. I decided to gain courage and use the wbadmin commands. I'll go ahead and "study" the commands.
