  1. It probably has 2x4GB DIMMs. I'd be surprised if it was a single 8GB stick.
  2. They can still be pretty useful for certain applications. There are plenty of very nice PCI only sound cards available, and they'd be useful to add an IDE controller for someone who needs to access old drives regularly, or perhaps something like a Zip drive. Or they were just being cheap and wanted something easy to fill the space.
  3. Do you have updates disabled somehow? They should automatically install unless your Chromebook is ancient.
  4. As far as I'm aware they will not do that. They'll have to do a full display replacement, even if the display isn't broken. If you want Touch ID that's what you'll have to do.
  5. You'd have to replace the entire home button itself, not the glass. If you want Touch ID then don't try to repair it yourself - take it to Apple for a screen replacement.
  6. The button itself is made of glass, so a simple drop could have broken it. You can get it replaced, but you'll lose Touch ID functionality unless Apple replaces it. I think they would replace the entire display assembly in that case.
  7. It all depends on use case. It sounds like Chrome OS is fine for what you need.
  8. You'll have to replace the screen itself. There's no way around it - it's physically cracked. You can open up the lid assembly and just replace the display panel, or you can choose to replace the entire lid with screen depending on how readily available parts are.
  9. Do you have a need for any advanced features that wouldn't be found on a consumer router?
  10. I've been plotting on my main machine for a few days very casually. I'm currently at 23 plots completed, so not too bad. I've got 3 SSDs in use for plotting (1x M.2 NVMe, 1x M.2 SATA, and 1x 2.5" SATA), and a bunch of random HDDs for farming.
  11. The M1 MacBook Air is also a great machine. The advantages of the Pro vs. the Air are as follows: Slightly brighter display Touch Bar Fan for cooling (useful for longer usage) Larger battery (hence excellent battery life)
  12. The Apple Premium for the M1 MBP is basically nothing. You aren't going to find something else that can match the M1 levels of battery life, performance, and especially cooling. You just aren't. As for having only used Windows - macOS isn't hard to learn. I've helped plenty of people get used to macOS from Windows, and it's not that hard to do once you figure out how the OS works.
  13. It seems that I'm having extremely bad luck with DDR2 RAM or this OptiPlex 755 is just being extremely picky. It won't work with 3 of the 4 sticks I've tried so far (2GB each, 800MHz). Of course it likes the fancy OCZ SLI certified stick, though. 

     

    @Den-Fi - I think one of these modules that isn't working is from you. I'd like to request a refund.

      For sure. Sticks can go bad, board slots can go bad.... anything can happen! 

      Only way you'll know on the current board is to keep throwing sticks in it till it posts with all the slots filled 🙂 

      Yep. I'm about out of 2GB DDR2 sticks. I've basically moved to all DDR3 or DDR4 systems over the past couple years, so I haven't kept track of my DDR2. My NAS is the only DDR2 system left that's actively used.

      I have a couple in boxes. Server and Gaming set ups. A few sets of memory. DDR through DDR4 nothing older. I will eventually kill most of it from overclocking adventures though. I've gone through a lot of hardware through the years lol.

      A few years ago my budget was a lot smaller than it is now, so almost everything I used had DDR2. Nowadays I have DDR3 systems with 16GB of RAM sitting completely unused. It's thanks to a job change that I have access to some of this stuff. 

  14. 1) It looks like it might support a GPU upgrade as it isn't soldered, but I don't know that you'd be able to find anything compatible that would be worth putting any money into. 2) Yes, but only with other Core 2 Duos. I wouldn't personally bother. 3) That's a hard no. You need a SATA SSD. 4) From what I can tell 4GB is the max. 5) Not sure what you'd be able to do for cooling. Cleaning it and replacing the thermal paste can help. 6) It should run Windows 10 alright with an SSD. And no, it does not support a Core i3 (or any i-series chip for that matter).
