  1. My brother is a freshman in college and produces music for a hobby. I built him a really nice desktop for his music production. He needs a new laptop for schoolwork on the go and he wants to get a macbook. The only macbook for 999 has a 7th gen processor and 4 year old graphics. I tried to talk him into the XPS 15 base model but he wants the macbook. His reasoning is that most DJ-ing software is desigened to work better on a mac. Is there any truth to this? What should I recommend my parents buy him? I considered getting a macbook pro 13 inch base model that is only 300 dollars more and I can upgrade the storage if he needs it. BTW the serato system requirements are really basic at 4 gigs of ram 1.07ghz processor and 1 gigabyte of Vram

    What should I upgrade to?

    never mind I just overclocked my gpu for the first time and increased my core clock 990 mhz! Am I doing something wrong, how is this possible?

    What should I upgrade to?

    @Tz000 I do have a 144hz monitor and I get really inconsistent frames from 60-144 usually closer to 60. I want to upgrade because any time I get in a fight when you would want more frames my frames drop down to 60. should I just get a better chair or something like that? Im thinking about getting a rx 580 or 590 and then reselling my 570
  4. I currently have a rx570, ryzen 5 1600x, and 450 watt psu. My grandmother feels obligated to get me a birthday gift and I want to run 1080p 144 hz low settings in games like fortnight and apex. What graphics card should I ask for? She has not given me a price range so I want to keep it relatively cheap.

    How far should I be from my monitor?

    @Slottr I realize that but i'm asking if there is a specific distance at which I can sit and not be bothered by the low resolution
  6. I'm looking to buy a 27in 1080p monitor. How close do I need to be to my monitor to see pixels?
  7. I have updated since it started if that changes anything but if I have to reinstall IOS and lose all my stuff I might as well just upgrade anyway.
  8. two days ago my I phone 7 lightning port (the headphone jack part) stopped working and the day after that the wifi started acting weird. I can't open youtube, google, or netflix but prime video, duck duck go, reddit, and imessage work fine. on duck duck go I can do a wifi speed test and im getting 30mb download and 15mb upload. does anyone know how I can fix this or should I just upgrade to the xs because I think this just might be planned obsolescence. I dont know if this should be on this fourum page or the phone one so I posted it in both

    HTPC build

    I am looking to cut cable and trying to build an HTPC to replace it. I plan on using it to stream video and occasionally 4k content and I want it to be as cheap as possible while still doing the job for a long time. I also want it to be small, no RGB, and not stick out. Also if you know of a good keyboard mouse combo that you can use on the couch please tell me. This is the build I plan right now please give suggestions.

  14. I am building a PC for my brother to use with FL studio/Ableton Live and light video editing. I know I posted on this build already but I have upgraded It and now want to see If anyone can cut the cost on some parts. The priority is music software (FL studio/Abelton Live) and the video editing will be light and 1080P. 16GB of ram is needed and a large core count processor. graphics card is not a huge concern because only light video editing will be done.
