    Anyone else not crazy about RGB?

    Yup, I know what you mean, my MB has the worlds brightest single white LED that is only on when the system is powered off, but still plugged in, unless I remember to disable it everytime I'm messing about and reset the CMOS for something or other and it shines directly at my bed from the angle of where the PC is. There is absolutely no reason for that LED to exist.

    haha, fair enough, when you said you'd painted them, thought you meant literally blacking them out.

    Could you not just unplug the power led & hdd led cables from the front panel connectors, or am I misunderstanding what you are meaning here?

    Pair of AMD Navi GPU's to be shown at Computex

    You would include it if you were talking about final consumer pricing though and not what you are supplying them at to the importer. While I could be wrong, I just can't see them starting at USD498.75 & USD623.75 + sales taxes in the US - even if the retailer eats a lot of their margin starts pricing on them at something like USD450-600. If they weren't including a tarriff on those quoted prices (and of course, assuming they are correct prices anyway) then it will essentially be asking everyone around them to put a gun to their own head and asking them to all pull the trigger. If they are going up against anything lower than 2080 performance they'd be horrible value for money, especially when those and the Radeon VII are both available from USD680.00 on newegg (albeit likely @ the 10% tarriff still, I would imagine).

    I had a skim of the thread and couldn't see anyone mention this, unless I'm mistaken, but those prices would almost certainly have to include the new US 25% tarriffs, as I would suspect they are quoting US consumer pricing in USD. A USD400.00 GPU would have been USD320.00 without any tarriff, and a USD500.00 GPU would have been USD400.00 which makes them a bit more sensibly priced if this is the case.

    How long do you use your pcs?

    Until I get bored one day and buy the parts for a new one, even then, I will usually carry over a PSU/GPU/Storage unless they are super old/dying.
  7. I don't get a laptop as I don't need one, but those that do, have a variety of normal HPs, HP spectres & Macbooks depending on who they are. The desktop I have at work is an HP Pro 3300 SFF with an i3-2120 (HT dual core... awesome 4 threads), 6gb of RAM & a mighty 455gb of spinning rust on Windows 10 Enterprise. I am due a new PC when the IT guy gets around to it or I decided to sabotage this one enough. The new ones are just essentially some newer version of what I already have, with some 7/8th gen intel i3, probably with 8gb of RAM instead and probably still spinning rust. Also have super quality dual 17" 4:3 monitors...(/s if you need that...) I bought my own mouse as the one I had was a stock HP shitty thing, so my MX Master 2S is probably the most expensive part of the whole setup. To be honest, apart from opening outlook, it actually isn't the worst thing for speed unless I have a specific Excel workbook open, which will take 5-10 seconds to recalculate everything if I change 1 single figure in the data pickup part, where the rest of the tabs pick up their information from.
  8. As nobody else has chimed in yet, I'd just look at the below two links and pick the one that seems to suit me best. Money Supermarket https://www.4g.co.uk/coverage/ Essentially they're all going to be using one of the main companies networks anyway, so personally I'd just find the one on a network that has the best signal around where I live/work, with a sensible amount of date/mins/texts for what I normally use. If you're just going pay as you go, you shouldn't really have much of a need to contact any customer support to be honest. For my personal use, looking at a few of them, I'd probably go with the Smarty unlimited one for £25 if I was in the UK (Unlimited everything pretty much & allegedly reasonable coverage by 3, albeit not as fast as EEs or Vodaphones general avg. data speed, but not super awful either), as I do use quite a bit of data and could quite easily use more than the 20gb I can get where I am, or the VOXI one with 45gb of data for £20.00 if Vodaphone had better coverage than 3.
  9. I've never broken my screen... 2 other people have broken my screens in the last 3/4 years, including my sister absolutely annihilating the screen on a phone I had lent her (it was an old one, so I didn't actually care, just pretty spectacular considering the amount of times i had dropped that on concrete & the road with no damage to the screen). On another, a friend cracked the touchscreen when I was on holiday, but he got some decent pictures of stuff before he managed to do this and it was probably partially my own fault for dicking about on the dune buggy enough that it got knocked against the metal roll cage. I also on another holiday later over a year later (same phone once I got the screen replaced) took it in the sea & pool too much & too deep and it died, but was wanting a replacement anyway. I can't be arsed using a case ever, and don't use screen protectors, but normally manage to drop a new phone in the first week I have it, if I am going to drop it at all. Only damage has ever been minor scratches.

    Are internet cafes still a thing?

    We used to have two back in the day in my small home town. 1 hasn't existed for probably 15 or so years, if not more and the other probably at least 10+ years.
  11. Literally the first link that shows in Google after pasting your subject line. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/12384/windows-10-upgrading-home-to-pro To upgrade from Windows 10 Home if you have a Windows 10 product key: Select the Start button, then select Settings > Update & Security > Activation.

    Apple May Not Have 5G Phone Until 2021

    To be perfectly honest, I wouldn't buy an iPhone ever as I really don't like iOS, but I don't see the problem with this at all. Like others have said 5G while available this year in certain places, it is going to be 2020 at the earliest it starts to become properly ubituitous and should be decent coverage in many places by 2021. In the meantime, anyone starting to use 5G should take a little bit of pressure off 4G and might boost average speeds because of this anyway.
  13. If they wanted to save some of their Epic dollars, they should not be advertising it to me on youtube, as I would never have bought it anyway. 3/4 of the youtube videos I watched yesterday had adverts for Borderlands 3.

    What MY School HAS!!

    BBC Micros for the win... Although I think my primary school had 3 or 4 of them when I was there... and a single Mac Colour Classic in every classroom. Then when I went to high school, 90% of the computers were Mac Classics (non-colour), with a smaller room that had some P1/P2 (if i remember correctly) machines that nobody except those doing GSCE or A-Levels were allowed to use. The Macs got binned off about halfway through my time there for PIIIs that were around 450mhz. Quality stuff (to be honest, the PIIIs were just about top of the range when they did buy them).
  15. In all the times I've been in and out of the US, I've only had one guy who was an absolute asshat (at LAX), quite literally the 2nd most rude person I've had the displeasure of talking to in the US. I got taken to a lovely little waiting room at McCarran in Vegas last time I was there, but everyone was super chill, while they decided to do some more checks on me (pretty sure someone with a similar name was wanted judging by the two CBP guys typing in to a single computer painfully slowly and discussing the fact I had a middle name and the guy they wanted didn't), and I got to listen to them asking a South American dude about the reasons he was carrying a large amount of cash (something like $30-40k) that he didn't declare, which was amusing. Honolulu, SF, NY, Orlando, Peach Arch & Mexico border crossings, everyone has been fine and the Honolulu guy and one of the Orlando ones was actually really quite funny.
