  1. Don't really need Pen support, touchscreen would be a nice.. touch. Yes SGD or GBP is fine too. Don't mind if its not upgradeable, I do most of the heavy workloads on my desktop, don't care about color accuracy.
  2. I have windows installed on bootcamp, I usually do office and programming on mac os since I'm doing robotics engineering. I always bring a mouse with me but macs have a good enough touchpad to at least view and showcase a 3d model.
  3. That sounds like a good idea, I didn't know the batteries were so cheap.
  4. Hello, I currently have a MBP 13' mid 2012, as much as I like this laptop (especially the keyboard, touchpad and mac os), the hard drive failed on me twice in the past year and the battery has started deteriorating to the point which I can't rely on this laptop anymore while I'm travelling and at college. I mostly do a lot of writing (word, programming, emails) and I also need to do CAD design on it with programs like Solidworks and Fusion 360. I'm looking for a lightweight laptop, that has many i/o ports (2-3 USB + HDMI) and a good keyboard and touchpad that can do cad, programming and mails/office. Preferably would like a touchscreen but the quality of the panel doesn't really matter to me. My budget can go up to 2000 dollars. I'm not going to play games on this laptop. Many thanks.
  5. 1. Budget & Location I'm still looking to buy a CPU and a motherboard to fit with my other components that I bought from different websites. I'm based in the UK and spending in pounds. I'm looking to buy most things on Amazon UK. 2. Aim My aim is to make a mini-itx/micro-atx build that I can easily move around to lan parties or when move accommodation yearly. I'm looking for a PC that can run the latest games such as AC Odyssey at High settings at 1080p, I will use the computer to do some 3D modelling as well. 3. Monitors I'm currently running a 1080p 60Hz HDMI monitor, I'm planning to upgrade in the future maybe a year from now to two monitors. 4. Peripherals I already have all of the components except CPU and Motherboard. These are my specs for now CPU: N/A Cooler: Noctua NH-L9x65 (Still haven't bought this though) MOBO: N/A Ram: 16 GB HyperX GPU: EVGA 1060 6GB SC PSU: EVGA G2 550 Storage: 250 Samsung EVO M.2 SSD, 1TB WD Green Case: small, cheap case that I had lying around I'm looking to spend around 300-350 pounds on CPU+motherboard combo, it would be preferable if the motherboard already had wifi in it. I'm not sure if a R7 1700X + ASRock Mini-ITX AB350 Gaming-ITX/AC will cut it. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B06X3W9NGG/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_2?smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&psc=1 https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASRock-Mini-ITX-Motherboard-AB350-GAMING-ITX/dp/B073BFTJQK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1540475847&sr=8-1&keywords=asrock+mini+itx+motherboard+ac#
  6. Lol it was simpler that I thought, I just reset the router again, changed the wifi password, connected it to the main router and it worked! This meant that DHCP was enabled but there weren't any problems for some reason, I could connect to other devices on the network and there were no ip conflicts
  7. So I have a setup where there is a main router which serves as a primary DHCP server and connected to it through lan there is a secondary router (TL-WDR 3600) which is supposed to be a wifi repeater. This is a picture of the setup. However, since the secondary router's firmware does not support wifi repeater mode, the IT guy that did the setup told that he just "disabled DHCP" to make it work. However, after a sudden power shortage during the night, the devices can't connect anymore to the wireless of the secondary router: the wireless SSID is there but when told to connect it won't, it will just show a buffering icon. The wifi of the main router works properly and has another SSID. I tried resetting the router and disabling DHCP but it still has the same problem.
  8. Cool Cool, I think I will buy an i5 then, just to be sure and then wait until I have the budget for a r9 380
  9. Nono, there will be some spare money + wages etc, the budget for the GPU will be around 250$
  10. Wait but the APU is still a dual core but with 4 thread, which I guess is better for also video editing (video editing is more of a priority for my sister). What it comes down to is to use a good cpu for now and then maybe next year add a good gpu whose cost is not included in this year's budget.
  11. Thank you for your answers Would something like this be good as well? Maybe buy a GPU later?

  12. So, my sister wants a pc! She's ready to join the pcmasterrace The things that my sister wants to do is some light gaming eg. 2D games and minecraft, but also occasionally stream and post videos for youtube. She also would prefer a mini-itx build. We already found the case so there is no need to include it in the 400 dollars ahaha. I figured that for games like minecraft you don't really need a gpu but can use the onboard graphics. Here's my question, I'm torn between choosing: a FX-8350 because of its higher number of cores, and probably better video editing or an i5-6400 because of its newer architecture and shit If I get AMD i will need to spend on a custom cooler and most likely on a discrete graphics card (But moar cores!!); If I get a non k i5 I won't need to buy a cooler and HD 530 graphics seem good (but less cores!) What do you suggest, pcpartpicker builds are welcome
  13. sorry I didn't say what I was going to buy, I'll wait till february of next year to buy something like a gtx 980 ti before Pascal comes out so the prices should drop. Lol I can't wait two and a half years to play a game!
