  1. Normal Grandma things, like email, facebook, and document viewing/editing. She complains about the boot time and it being slow as well as some apps being slow. My younger cousins do use it for some games like minecraft, CIV6, etc. I think she also just wants a new computer.
  2. Title sais it all. My Grandmother wants to replace her 2013 21.5 imac, and she asked me what she should get. The HDD is starting to go out and I am just wondering when the new macs are coming out. Thanks
  3. Like above I would recommend a Chromebook device. I would personally go with the google pixlebook Go, but you can go with cheaper options. Good Cheap (you can check out the education edition for even cheaper) : https://store.hp.com/us/en/pdp/hp-chromebook-14a-g5-p-7yf74ut-aba-1 Pixelbook (recomended): https://store.google.com/us/product/pixelbook_go Black Friday is coming up so expect some good prices soon. Edit: Just found this Samsung Chromebook that is $650 of the original price. It has an i5 processor, a 4k display, and is a 2 in 1. ht
  4. I am think about that, but looking to modernize the system. There is limited compatibility with services and they are hard to program and setup. This is a good solution though. I know, but crestron killed their prodigy line and it will not work with modern services. Also the app is $100 and hasend been updated since 2018.
  5. A couple of days ago my Crestron Prodigy systems brain went out. We can not use our whole house audio system. I was thinking of either getting a Sonos amp for each room, a cheap integrated 2ch amp for each room and hooking them up to a chrome cast. What is the best solution? We have 6 rooms controlled (2 4 zone amps), and each room does not have more than 2 in ceiling Polk audio speakers. Also need a keypad to control input and volume in each room. Would like to keep under 3000, unless there is a excellent option that is over that price. If you are wondering I am replacing the swi
  6. I only know how to print, list, and math. I am very new. I am looking for a program for beginners.
  7. Hello all, I am looking into learning python. I have tried Pycharm's course and Pluralsight, but I have not found one that is very engaging. Does anyone know of a good course?
  8. You can go with Intel, but AMD has innovated lately and you get much more bang for your buck. I upgraded my pc from intel, and I have had no issues with it. I highly recommend switching.
  9. Hey all, I have spectrum mobile on my phone, and am most likely going to get a phone that is 5G capable. From my understanding Verizon is getting "Nationwide 5G" (I'm guessing this is like T-mobile's low/mid range 5G correct me if i'm wrong), and I was wondering if spectrum is going to get this functionality. I know that they ride off of Verizon's network, and it would be awesome to have that. Thanks for your responses.
  10. The cooler should not require any maintenance, and is just as easy as setting up a air cooler. I would recommend it because it saves on space.
  11. Like @zeusthemoose said, it really depends on your needs. If your pc works fine for you, there is no reason to upgrade. If you want to save money, than fix your pc. One reason to upgrade now is bottle necking. The RTX 2060 is extremely powerful, but you are not getting the full potential out of it because of your CPU. I would definitely recommend building a new system. You will get more out of it and wont need to worry about having a fail that may stop you from doing your work. What I would do in your situation is get a new CPU, case, motherboard, PSU, a NVME SSD, and
  12. coolermaster.com/catalog/coolers/rgb-accessories/argb-led-controller/ This should work as it uses a usb 2.0 header.
  13. Like eeeee1 said, this should be fine. We don't know what the power consumption is going to be like on these cards, but if is anything like the 1650 it should be OK. It is not a bad idea to have extra power available, because it leaves room for you to upgrade.
  14. Yes there is. You can get an RGB controller from a company like Corsair, NZXT, or Cooler Master. Can you please specify what Case, fans and strips you have?
  15. On my PC I have some Steelseries Siberia Elite Prisms. Defiantly looking to upgrade in the future. I don't need a mic so I may get a pair of studio grade headphones and a dac/amp. If I do want to listen to some good music I have a pair of Thiel cs 3.5s in my basement that I have hooked up to a apple TV that I use to airplay tidal. I also have some Thiel power plane 2 speakers for my center and back channels. All being pushed by a Rotel amp and a Marantz head unit. In my room I have some Polk Bookshelf speakers and a pair of Infinity run by a Yamaha amp. (You only asked for my PC audio setup bu
