  1. If this is still relevant, I cannot recommend enough the Dell Inspiron (I know, I'm still waiting for Dell to release a Vostro counterpart) 5585 (2-in-1 if possible) (try to get it at a discount, though). CPU (technically APU): Ryzen 3rd gen (Ryzen 5 3500U recommended (almost as good as an i7-10510U, with better graphics performance), however the Ryzen 3 3200U is also good, since it is almost as good as an i5-7200U (with better graphics performance) after taking into account AMD's lower cooling requirements and Intel's major performance drop due to the security issues) GPU: iG
  2. Sorry I had disappeared for so long, I wasn't at home until slightly before my country's government initiated it's lockdown, and haven't really had the time to log in. I have to admit, I could not find anything that could help you, except for the options you had outlined.
  3. This is weird. Perhaps the RAM is to blame (not necessarily bad)? Ryzen 3000 is the first Ryzen generation where you can throw just any random RAM stick without worry, after all.
  4. I'm sorry for not being online for so long, I haven't had the time to log in. There is a guide on MyDigitalLife, thought it basically boils down to this: 1. Manually download the .appxbundle files via AdGuard's Store downloader website (here) (it simulates accessing it from the Microsoft Store, so the links created are the same) using the FamilyID (0e639757-dc24-4e5b-9b33-226f71dcd952). Note: You may need to rename the file to include a .appx or .appxbundle extension (either will do), since the file is supposed to be streamed to the Store, where it knows what to do without car
  5. That looks pretty good, except for the Realtek NIC, which is not surprising, given that 99% of the motherboards utilize Realtek NICs, since that is the cheapest option. I'm pretty confident that you could leave things be on the computer, since you cannot replace the NIC (you could buy a Gigabit PCIe NIC, however those are prohibitively expensive for no reason, unless it is Realtek, in which case you get pretty much the same quality whether it is a ~5$ PCIe NIC or a ~90$ PCIe NIC, and it will be the same as the onboard NIC). One more word about Realtek networking driver flaws:
  6. Thanks. In that case, I really need to read up more, since so far I have benefited from jumbo frames (admittedly, only up to ~4.5KB), however I only use it locally, and I don't utilize Windows for this either, however it could be placebo.
  7. That certainly makes sense, and also explains how I saw the opposite in my usage. It depends on what kind of usage it is.
  8. I will need to read upon the matter before I can say yay or nay to your comment, however from my experience, I have yet to see fragmentation as a result of jumbo frames, rather than because lack of jumbo frames.
  9. From personal experience, that is not true. Windows wont recognize the partition, however it will certainly recognize the physical device, and as such should appear inside Disk Management (with an "unknown" or "unformatted" partition or partitions).
  10. Yeah, that's a valid point. Realtek's networking products are pretty bad due to incompetent drivers (this I have heard from people working on the Linux Realtek drivers, I was a beta tester for a short period of the drivers for the RTL8211AE (WiFi-AC)). Other than that, while jumbo frames do make more efficient usage of the network, and as such improve networking speed, it won't help speed up the Internet speed, since to my knowledge, no ISP makes use of jumbo frames for non-corporate clients, and even then, only a small percentage actually use it, such as universities, some me
  11. That may be the case, but lets first make sure. To bring an example, I know that our distance from the CO limits our maximum speed (had we payed for 100Mbt/s) to ~60-65Mbt/s, however we've had issues in the past year, that were not shared by our neighbors, sometimes limiting our speed to ~800Kbt/s (that's ~100KB/s), which after checking things (literally checking every single point on the line, except for the networking box itself), I think is due to something going haywire in our networking box (I was supposed to call someone today, but was unable to do so on time, so hopefully tomorrow)
  12. In the Store's settings you have an option to enable auto-updates, an option that is enabled by default. And I find it hard to believe that you only have 2 store apps installed, that only possible on the LTSC edition, since it doesn't come with any store apps at all (you install the store along with the most basic dependencies, unofficially).
  13. Ah. Well both are flagships, just one is a newer generation than the other.
  14. Hmm... Perhaps Windows Update in the background? Or perhaps the Microsoft Store is updating apps in the background?
  15. Did you check with another PC? Perhaps something else was limiting it?
