  1. So a laptop or all-in-one?
  2. So I'm looking to buy a cheap Mac mini to familiarize myself with mac and play around with the apps. I'm confused about the different versions of Mac OS X, so I just have a few questions I think would clear some things up for me. Thanks in advance! Are they kinda like the different updates of Windows 10? (17.03, 17.09, 18.03, 18.09) Would it make sense to think of them like that? Updates optional or forced? Will things not work correctly if you are not running the latest version? Will a computer running snow leopard do the same thing as one running high sierra or mojave? Are there features or apps available on the latest version that won't work on previous versions?
  3. I got my A+ certification in June 2018, and I'll be ready to take network+ in about a month or so. I've been working at Fry's Electronics as a computer technician since March 2018. I know a bit from LPI Linux Essentials 1, and I think either that or CCENT could be the fastest certs I could get after Network+. Server+ also looks like one that wouldn't take as much time as the others. I know these certs are a bit varied, but I'm just interested in a lot of different aspects of computers. I'm especially interested in Linux and networking. However, which one or two do you think I should focus on next in order to land a better job(hopefully with a salary)? These are the certs/areas I'm interested in learning: LPI Linux Essentials LPIC 1 or 2 Linux+ MCSA Study Active Directory Security+ Server+ CCNA CCENT

    Hardware or Software, Raid 1 or 5.

    3 TB Windows budget not important not sure about speed Because I'm a nerd
  5. My data mostly includes movies, tv shows, music, pdf e-books, documents, personal photos and recordings. I'm going to be reading from the drive the vast majority of the time, and occasionally adding new e-books, movies, etc. Will that make a difference in which type of raid to choose? (hardware raid vs software, raid 1 vs raid 5)

    How to connect my two windows 10 computers

    Is there a way to share an entire drive instead of folders within the drive? I was able to right-click on a folder inside my D drive, share it with everyone, then mapped the network drive on my laptop. Just want to know if I can share the entire drive in the same way.
  7. I have a laptop running windows 10 Home and a desktop running windows 10 Pro. Is there a way to connect them together with a workgroup to share files, folders, and printers? (as I understand it, microsoft did away with homegroups, right?) I just want my laptop to have access to the printer and hard drives connected to my desktop. Thanks

    Problem turning External HDD into Internal

    I actually already tossed the enclosure. Oh well. Good thing I backed up.
  9. I had an external hard drive that I wanted to get off my desk. I took it out of the enclosure and made it internal. But now when I go into disk management, it asks me to initialize the disk every time and the entire HDD shows up as unallocated. Is there any way to fix this problem? It's not a huge problem since I have the data backed up elsewhere, but I'd like to get the data back if possible.
  10. If I understand Linux distros correctly, they are nothing more than the programs, features, and packages that are chosen to be included with the linux kernal. But if you know how to install and uninstall programs, change desktop environments, etc, then it doesn't matter which distro you start with, right? You can start with linux ubuntu, change things around, and end up with something like linux mint?

    Ubuntu Server versus Desktop

    Are there any stripped down versions of ubuntu desktop that just give you a command line?
  12. Is ubuntu server the same as ubuntu desktop just without the GUI? I thought I might download the server version as a way of forcing myself to learn commands.
