    Thunderbolt Laptop for Corel

    https://www.coreldraw.com/en/product/coreldraw/?topNav=en#sys-reqs GPU isn't a requirement, though there is an option to allow for hardware acceleration from Intel or Nvidia GPU. http://help.corel.com/videostudio/en/official-help/index.html#page/videostudio/h2-hardware-acceleration.html (Intel being the integrated graphics in your CPU)

    Recommended Antivirus.

    Best antivirus out there!
  3. Like @Mnky313 said, I would go for the Ryzen 5 2600 since it should be available at a good price at the moment. Just remember to do a BIOS update before installing a new CPU from the 2nd generation.

    Tech job - what do you do for living?

    I work in a "mom&pop" computer store offering custom solutions, repairs and on-site consultation. I also work for a university as IT support for online classes.

    BENQ xl2070z - out of range

    Make sure Windows screen resolution is set to 2560 x 1440
  8. They're all the same really... https://www.amazon.ca/UniLink-Drive-MacBook-Unibody-SuperDrive/dp/B015AFUTVY/ref=asc_df_B015AFUTVY/?tag=googleshopc0c-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=292982079026&hvpos=1o3&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4840680429202299055&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1002604&hvtargid=pla-570334342269&psc=1
  9. There's a small screw hole (the one that isn't identified in the picture), once that screw is out the optical drive should slide out. Under which you may find a hidden screw. Slots for upgrades, the hard drive 2.5'' bay, you can replace the optical drive with a hard drive using a caddy adapter. And the ram should be upgradable.
  10. It couldn't be easier to get inside. I've opened these before... Bottom cover screws, then gently pry it open from one of the sides... Even using a thick business card or an old credit card, or even a guitar pick (instead of the plastic prying tools) can help.

    Dell Latitude E6420 - E6430 SSD Migration

    Everything will work fine. You shouldn't have any issues.

    Fan not spinning properly after maintenance

    Fan bearings are busted, send for an RMA if still under warranty, or get a new fan...

    Will this ram work?

    Yeah those are RDIMM's with ECC. Will be supported by your board. Perform a BIOS update to ensure compatibility with the most parts (CPU, RAM, etc)
  14. Might've been returned to Amazon and repackaged as brand new, despite being used for an installation prior.
