    If you can run a cable directly, then do it. It's always the cheapest, fastest and most reliable ethernet link possible.
     
    The key to good Wi-Fi is often better placement of your hardware, instead of buying new hardware.
    I see lots of people that have their router burried in a corner or have the antennas pointing the wrong direction.
    And if you are going to upgrade your Wi-Fi, then don't necessarily do it with a new router and instead get a dedicated access point, which you can hang somewhere high up onto the wall or the ceiling for better coverage.
     
    P.S. powerline sucks 😛

    Yeah it is, luckily we have a really long ethernet and just tried this hypothesis and its awesome. It seems the router is a bottleneck so think we will get some of those clips and a new router. Thank You for the help

    i'll vote for iPads too.
    Pure Spec sheets aside, how long you get Updates, the OS optimization (for the Tablet Formfactor), and the amount of Tablet-optimized Apps is a different League.
    Plus a quite consistent Battery Life and Performance. I almost never felt any "strange slowdowns" or "strange battery drains". But i'll have to admit, i did have some app crashes once in a while.
     
    You can find alternatives on Android for drawing, for digital note taking, etc.. But yea. Those above give the iPad a special user experience, since Google doesn't do anything for Tablets. It's basicly just Samsung (and Huawei), who built in their own UI-Software with some Tablet-features.
     
    If you can wait 1-2 Months, there COULD be a new iPad 2020 (Entry model), and a new iPad Air 4 (probably with a Re-design).

    I reckon if the s6 goes down to around the price of the s4 currently it will be okay as I'll get an additional 10 percent off of that price. 
     
    I guess I need to wait and see what happens about tab s7 to see when the tab s6 comes down in price. 
     
    The tab s6 does seem ideal give its amazing specs and s pen that seems to work really well, it's just the price which is off putting.

    Hey everyone 
     
    After doing my first year of uni I'm thinking of getting a tablet with a pen as a way of note taking in lectures. 
     
    I am just wondering which one to pick. I have seen the new tab s6 lite which looks good but I'm unsure on how the chipset will hold up. Then I thought I could purchase the tab s6 when the s7 is released as I'd assume it's price would be decreased, I'm just not sure how we'll supported it will be in the future with software updates. 
     
    I am also unaware of how the palm rejection is with these tablets. 
     
    My main uses would be note taking at uni, browsing on Google, YouTube, Netflix and some occasional gaming, which makes the s6 lites price seem appealing. 
     
    Does anyone have experience or the knowledge of which would be best for me? 
     
    Thanks for the help

    After some research i'm thinking of paying a bit more and getting an all in one laser printer like this one https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing-accessories/printers-scanners-and-ink/printers/brother-dcp1612w-monochrome-all-in-one-wireless-laser-printer-10124890-pdt.html

    Prokart2000 reacted to yolosnail in RSI   
    I too got terrible wrist pain when using the trackpad on one of my old laptops while mine was in for repair. I couldn't even use a door handle. 
    When I got my new laptop, within a day or two the pain had gone and I've been perfectly fine ever since.
     
    I also had issues when I was using a cheap Logitech K270 just after moving, but when I switched back to my Microsoft Wireless Keyboard 1000 it went away.
     
    There's only two mice that I've used that haven't caused wrist pain, my MX Master, and a generic Dell Laser Mouse that I used at college

    Prokart2000 reacted to 17030644 in New GPUs?   
    Yes there are you can read the news but there isn't any official confirmation that outright says "they will arrive this day"
     
    you can wait if you want (I would) but sadly we don't know for sure that they are comming soon. There's just a bunch of rumors and "leaks" that claim augost is when they release new cards but like the guy above said they arrive in augost (or july 30th as latest information suggests) that's just GTX xx80 and xx70, GTX xx60 might land one month later (like the 760 and 1060) or 4 months later (like the 960) or even 5-6 months later (like the 660) it's quite hard to say

    Yeah go for your initial choice its a better value than the 8GB. 60 is kind of steep for an additional 4GB.

    I just checked on newegg, all of the specific game deals or $20 steam cards seem to be for GTX 1070 and up, or Vega 56 and up. The rest seem to be Mail in rebates. Its definitely possible that they're are some deals out there but I wasn't able to locate them when browsing for 3 minutes.

    If you can find a RX580 for a decent price i'd go for it. It seems like AMD isn't going to release anything in the near future and Nvidia is going to release high end cards that will carry a hefty price tag.
