  1. Yeah I was actually thinking of quite a few lenovos, but ill look into that one. Thanks guys!
  2. HI all, Here comes another annoyingly vague question, so sorry about that first off. Basically, my friend has just started Uni and he needs a laptop for his studies.The only criteria he gave me was that it should be no more than £400 ($530 - $550). However, if you could find something in that price range with an SSD that would be greatly appreciated as he has a laptop just now but it's unusably slow because of it's old ass HDD. The course he's doing requires him to use sound production software on his laptop, so no less than 4GB RAM is pretty necessary here (obviously the more the merrier, but I am aware we're working with a budget). So yeah, if you guys could recommend me a laptop with (preferably, but not necessarily) an SSD and a decent amount of RAM for £400 or less you would be helping me out a whole bunch. He won't be using this for any kind of gaming so don't worry about graphics at all really, and there's also no preference on the whole AMD/Intel thing. Thank you, P!

    Cherry MX Blue "ping" spring noise?

    It's most prominent with my Up Arrow Key, but I can barely make it out if i don't bottom it out but keep in mind this is my first ever mechanical keyboard and I'm only a couple days in using it so I still bottom out but I'll try and work on that How long did it take you before you stopped bottoming out?

    Cherry MX Blue "ping" spring noise?

    Yeah the blues obviously have the (sensational) click but I thought that it might also be to do with the fact that the top of our keyboards have that metal backplate that the keys hit if you bottom them out and i tapped a pen against the metal and it kind of produced the same noise. So i think it's a combination of the switches and properties of metal, but if the switches sort themselves out then I don't really mind the noise from the metal

    Cherry MX Blue "ping" spring noise?

    I have the Corsair K70, I was just saying apparently it's quite common for Filco boards. I will contact Corsair if necessary though
  9. Hi, so I got my first mechanical keyboard over the weekend (glad to finally be apart of this prestigious club) and I'm loving it but I noticed on some of the keys there is a "ping" noise coming form the spring inside the switch. It isn't particularly loud but when I do notice it it is rather annoying. I turned to Google for help and turns out it's a pretty common problem, mainly with Filco boards, and I saw a few people mention that it's only a problem the first couple of days of use because it's a new keyboard/switches and you just need to give them time to "break in"? If anyone else with this issue tell me if this is true and if it will go away, because like I said it's not an urgent issue it's just a bit annoying. Oh and my keyboard is the Corsair K70 (non RGB) Cherry MX Blue version. Thanks, Paul

    Anyone here bought from PCNation?

    I know but that's why I aksed here as well because a lot of the reviews there are negative and was wondering if that was just because the people who were having good experiences weren't reviewing so decided to ask here for some first hand feedback

    Anyone here bought from PCNation?

    I'm an avid scan buyer actually, it's just that they don't have what I'm looking for or else I would definitely be buying from them :'(
  12. Hey y'all, I was wondering if anyone here has bought anything from PCNation before? I'm specifically looking at a keyboard but a lot of the reviews of this place seem to be mainly negative. However, people are a lot more likely to review if they had a bad experience and I've bought off quite a few badly rated sites in my time all without a problem. So has anyone bought from PCNation and is it all good. Thanks!
