  1. Thanks for the recommendation, I will keep a look!
  2. Price: £700 e.g., Shippable to UK Usage: Gaming nothing high end, productivity e.g., Word processing, spreadsheet. Requirements: Long battery life while working e.g., Running VMs + several other productivity software. 8gb as you normally can't get 16gb within £700 Laptops. Needs to be fairly silent for a laptop if possible, and dedicated GPU is always nice, definitely if I want to play some games on it. I just want to stay clear from Lenovo, I have had problems with them definitely with linux, as well as their bloatware, Lenovo Vantage what gives yo limited options.
  3. Thanks for this information, will wait for the fix and see if it fixes my problem!
  4. Hi, I plugged in my USB stick into my computer and it restarted it. Once it loaded it wasn't showing up even if I took it out and back in. I then put it in my laptop and I could then see it and I then could open stuff inside, thinking it was all good I put it back in my main pc but got nothing, not even the light showed on the USB stick, I went back to the laptop and then got nothing again. I have tried other USB sticks and they still work. When I touch the USB when I plug it in it gets warm still but there is still no light or sign of it on my computer (disk manager, device manager etc).
  5. Hi, I got a Lenovo laptop last year for college and have been using windows 10 on it, but recently I have been interested in Linux, specifically Pop OS!. At first I was going to download Ubuntu, I got it ready on the usb stick and as soon as I started installing I noticed that my touchpad wasn't working, I plugged in a external USB mouse thinking it might just be a missing driver etc, but when I loaded in it wasn't even listed in xinput/ xinput list. At this stage I was quite busy and didn't have time to look into it. Few months later I recently started up my lapt
  6. Thank you, I will have a better look next time on amazon and ebay!
  7. I am looking into the keyboard, but I am struggling to find any key caps as they are all out of stock or they look, well, awful. Do you have any ideas? If not I have found a few that might work. As for the switches I have looked into the Kailh Pro switches, but, I have no experience with them, should I just stick to brown like I original planned for?
  8. So, I was looking at the amazon page and unfortunately the keyboard would be coming from a unreliable seller and has a track record having taking ages to deliver (Months sometimes), I am also unable to find the keyboard anywhere I trust. If you have any more recommendations much will be appreciated! At this point I have come to the realisation that I don't need tkl and that I would be good for a 60% keyboard as well (if that helps).
  9. Thank you very much, I will have a proper look in a bit.
  10. Honestly I don't really know, I am new to the keyboard world and I am still learning. I am interested in the Brown switches but I am open to any really, not really looking for red or blue tho'. Any recommendations will be helpful
  11. Hello, I am looking for a new keyboard and I am not sure what to go for. I do game, nothing competitive, I also do a lot of typing daily. I am looking for something around £100, with brown switches, don't really care if they are cherry switches e.g. Kailh is good. As for the size of the keyboard, I don't really care as long as I have independent arrow keys, stuff like a number pad doesn't matter that much. (isn't it like 80% keyboard or like tkl) I have found a few keyboards but not sure at all. Any input is welcome!
  12. System Specs: 3700x (stock) + MSI x570 MPG GAMING EDGE WIFI + 2070 Super +16gb Ram 3200mhz + 750w PSU I have just update my Chipset driver and nothing has changed! BIOS: 06/11/2019 - Updates are available (should I do them - I have heard that you should really only do it if the new features etc will benefit you). Hello, when I turned my pc on this morning I noticed it being louder than usual - I thought it would go after about 10 minutes letting all programs fully settle down after start up, however, instead I noticed the fans on my pc kept fluctuating in noise every 5 seconds w
  13. Thanks for your response - looks like a decent laptop and will definitely look into it more - browsing about doesn't seem like a lot of places sell them - got some digging ahead of me xd. IPS is fine with me - most of my main monitors are IPS - should of stated above and will do a edit rn, but storage isn't a problem as I will be swapping them out for prob a bigger ssd along with a fresh install of windows to get rid of all the crap companies sometimes put in the laptop.
  14. Hello, I am looking for a new laptop I can use for college - my budget is £600. The laptop needs to be able to handle some basic Office programs along with coding and just browsing the internet - I am not looking for something gaming! I have done some digging and I have found the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 AMD, if I was to go with this I can configure it to have 8gb + 4500u along with back-lit keyboard etc for about £600 (£599.99) (I might able to get a 10% discount through work). I am also open to Intel, however, I tend to gravitate towards AMD as you generally get better price to
  15. Okay, thanks for your help - I will do some further research!
