    Instructions Per Clock. Generally speaking, this gets better with updated architectures. So running at the same clock, the newer Kaby Lake Pentium will generally do more work than the older Haswell i3, excluding the AVX2 workloads mentioned.

    There are i5s and i7s for the same socket as i3

    For general workloads the 2nd system is probably better in most ways. The i3 is Haswell, and the Pentium is Kaby Lake, so enjoys a bit more general IPC given both run the same nominal clock. The only exception is if you have any software that intensively uses AVX2 instruction set. The i3 has it, but the Pentium does not. AVX2 code could run over 2x faster on the i3.

    You'll have the benefit of being able to upgrade the CPU on the Pentium machine to something more powerful, should you want to... the first system would be capped to a much lower performance cpu.
    The extra memory would also help, with day to day stuff.

    They are almost the same like 5-10% difference. The Pentium G4560 is just a 2-3 years newer.  If you are stealing, do it properly get them both 😛

    I'd go with the Pentium system. The whole system is on a newer platform so it has a newer motherboard, faster RAM and possibly faster storage. Also the pentium cpu is faster than the old Core-i3.

    G4560 is a better CPU and has better other components.

    I see, well the i3 to the G45 CPU is very much a downgrade my dude, the wordt quality would have to do with your gpu limitations of the Celeron, I recommend you go back to the i3

    As far as I know each wireless dongle and mouse/keyboard set are "matched" to the radio frequency that they've been configured to use, this is set at the factory.
    No two wireless sets have the same frequency to avoid "crossover" when two sets are being used in close proximity

    You need to setup the second one as a repeater or access point. The first one must be DHCP, having both in that role causes issues with dominance on the network.

    yup, you can do this through your bios. mash f keys on boot then set boot drive.
    (realized that might not have been super clear, mashing the f keys gets you into bios, then from there you can navigate to your drives and designate boot priority for the one ya want)

    idh1oi12jkl31jk2bgve3jk12b reacted to SolarNova in is IPS a must for a student that puts more than 8 hours a day looking at the screen? or is it irrelevant?   
    Many use PWM (pulse width modulation) to adjust the brightness of the backlight. Basically it flickers.
    Its not usually perceptible directly , however can cause some people eye strain and/or headaches.
     
    Flicker free uses adjustable DC, thus no flicker.
     
     
    Any 'good' spec sheet should say if its flicker free or not.
    However as mentioned in the Pinned thread in this Display section, you should be looking at review sites if u want to make a truly informed decision, these reviews will check the type of backlight in use.
     
    That said, since this is just for basic office type work, I'd just keep an eye on the spec sheet and look for those with 'flicker free' or 'flicker safe' listed.

    For non gaming, non color accurate office work, any display will do.
     
    the IPS viewing angles can help if ur likely to be viewing the display at off angles or if u frequently have multiple people looking at it at once.
     
    In terms of eye fatigue, most usually worry about flicker, in which case ull want o find a flicker free backlight implementation. A blue light filter or reading mode would also likely help.
     
    But back to ur specific question on panel type. For 'solo' office use its largely irrelevant. TN, IPS or VA will do fine.

    TN is good for high refresh rates and response time for a low cost while sacrificing color quality. It's generally good enough unless you work with photo or video editing and need as good color quality as possible. It's been the preferred choice for gamers for years though lately premium IPS panels have improved their refresh rates and response times, allthough for a cost.
     
    For just reading text and typing words in ...Word.. TN will do just fine. I have two TN panels and they aren't hard on the eyes or anything. It's important to take breaks regardless of what panel you use. IPS 5ms 60Hz will only look more pretty than TN but both will do their job fine if you only are interested in displaying text.

    What tires my eyes is fussy text and small text.
     
    I stared at screens all day working and played games at night for years and there are monitors that I have ditched because of eye strain. The most recent ones have all been VA panels and I would not buy a VA panel now unless it was 4k. I stay away from monitors that at not RGB as well.
     
    I also use large monitors and 4k TVs because they allow my eyes to move around like they would if I was not looking at a screen.  My eyes are not focused in one place for any length of time so less strain.

    Depends on what you are going to use it for. Many people and office workers use TN panels to do basic office task without any issues. IMO for just text it's irrelevant what type of monitor you use. I rather have higher refresh rate than higher contrast for office work.

    VA is just another display technology. I haven't read studies on the effects on the eye, so I can't say which is better. you have health professionals for that, or google.

    ips has better viewing angles and colour reproduction
    va has better constrast.
     
    for just reading stuff, either will work, just don't get a TN panel.

    It points connecting clients as to where to look for the DNS server. Your primary router, by default, uses your ISP's DNS server, so the secondary unit would use that as well. The DNS2 entry is just a backup if DNS1 is not found.

    No, that shouldn't cause the kinds of issues you are seeing. If they are both on auto, they'll just simply attempt to find the least-crowded channel and use that.

    The only other thing I can think of, it the above instructions don't help, would be to disable IPv6 on your 2nd router. It's amazing how bad IPv6 can be, even though it's been around for decades already.

    Are they using the same SSID? If so, then yes, the password should be the same. If they are not using the same SSID, then no, the passwords can also be different.
     
    Btw, you posted your WiFi-password in the screenshot -- better change it.

    Literally no idea, since I don't have the router you have. You'll just have to try and see. That said, WPA-mixed allows devices to use WPA1 or WPA2 for security, but WPA1 is deprecated and vulnerable -- you should always be using WPA2, if possible. Short preamble, 20/40 coexist and beamforming should improve WiFi-performance, even if only a little.
     
    Beamforming may also cause more trouble, so feel free to try with and without, if you see more issues.
