  1. Sorry i wasn't aware of that,is there a way i can remove this?
  2. Hi, i can someone help me with installing mac OS Mojave on my HP ENVY - 15-as102na? I have an imac to use for setting up my usb & installing MacOS Mojave.There are various kext files etc that i'm not sure about and need some help as some are hardware specific. I tried previously but got stuck on an apple logo and couldn't get past that, and tried today and had problems with Clover. Specs: Cpu: i5 7200u GPU: HD 620 8GB ram Wifi card- Intel Wireless 7265 ( Intel® 802.11ac (2x2) ) Motherboard - HP 81D2 & BIOS version is f.56
  3. The thing is i like the case, i'm fine with keeping the motherboard was just curious. i have a Zotac Geforce RTX 2060 TWIN FAN 6G and wanted to use that hp case but the 180w is nowhere near good sufficient enough
  4. Was looking at adding a gpu but the 180w psu isn't the best
  5. Hi, looking for a new power supply for a ' HP Pavilion 570-p030na ' It comes with a 180w psu, i was wondering what type of psu's i can fit in there? Also is it possible to replace the motherboard easily? As most pre built use custom dimensions. Specs: Intel Core i3 I3-7100 Processor 8 GB RAM 1TB Hard Drive Windows 10 Home 64-bit Edition Operating System Link to PC: https://support.hp.com/gb-en/document/c05437129 https://www.debenhamsplus.com/p/1191483/hp-pavilion-570-p030na-core-i3-7100-8gb-1tb-dvd-rw-windows-10-desktop

  7. After looking around i see the Acer Aspire being the best option, ths specs are much better than naything compared to it in that price range 128gb m.2 ssd would be good + the 1tb hdd If you do a fresh install of windows on the ssd there won't be much bloatware you can use the 1tb hdd until you see a good m.2 for sale

I feel like that laptop is the best for around $300, much better than others.

    M.2 question

    Yes it'll be fine, there will be no issues
  10. Have you set your power plan to high performance in windows settings? Do you have any programs running in the background? I'm not sure a ssd would improve fps that much much having csgo installed on a ssd would improve loading times In my bios I have an option for turbo cpu performance you might too, it's worth a check! OC your a bit wont hurt either i have ram that is 2400 speed and runs at 3000 Your friends 1080 is much better & the i7 will be better in a game that is cpu intensive
  11. What resolution are you and your friend playing games at? Is v sync turned on for you? According to UserBenchmark your CPU 5% better for gaming compared to the i7 7700, you also have 2 more cores but the i7 7700 has 2 more threads What speed is your ram? Your friend may have overclocked* using the intel tuning utility I think the resolution might be why your fps varies, it is unusual. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=199958323
  12. Would you consider any other laptops or are you all set on that one? Is the 2 in 1 design important to you? there are laptops around the $1,700 price range that will have better specs than a 1050ti For example a Razer Blade 15 has a i7 8750H , 16gb ram , 1060 max q , 256 ssd + 2 tb hdd Judging from the laptop you suggested it seems like you'd like a thin laptop rather than a massive gaming laptop etc I have listed a asus zenbook with similar specs for cheaper than the hp, but only has a 1050 Good number of ports and has a good webcam location, which is important judging from you not wanting a dell xps II'm not sure about shipping though. https://www.amazon.com/ZenBook-Ultra-Slim-Compact-i7-8565U-Windows/dp/B07HRWKN9R/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=gigabyte+laptops&qid=1552825387&s=gateway&sr=8-6
  13. Use https://www.mrmemory.co.uk/ Download the system scanner, run the software and you'll see what memory upgrades are available. Some older laptops don't support more than 12gb ram Mr Memory will display the maxium ram supported and other information.
  14. A video of linus using Mac os in 2019, like a follow up episode/series to the ' iMac 5K Retina 27" Display Overview - iSwitched Part 1 ' It would be interesting to see how far Mac os has improved since 2014 when he filmed the original series. Some new features for example Dark mode , desktop stacks , new quick actions , metal 2.0 ,advanced screenshots , new file system APFS , changed gallery view , optimization of storage ( helpful on smaller ssd's ) Would be interesting to see how far Mac os is progressing
