Interestingly, their design will be the basis of the next JEDEC standard to replace SODIMM memory.Some Dell's have Dell memory:
So I guess same procedure as with windows is called for? 😜 any major update, wait at least half a year and read a bunch of experiences from other people to see what’s still broken?I "upgraded" my XPS13 from the previous Ubuntu LTS version to the current one. I shouldn't have done that
I'm not exactly a die hard Windows user, but it offers everything I need despite problems (everyone say what you want, I experience few problems with Windows these days). Despite this I would still be looking at a MacBook if I needed a new personal laptop. Apple sent me an email about the new MacBook Pro 14" and 16" this morning, they look great and I'm sure they perform well too. However, unless I wanted to edit my photos (or videos, which I rarely record) while I'm out it would be a total waste.Now I want to try an Apple Silicon MacBook. I don't have the money, not even for a used, base-model MacBook Air M1 (which would be a bit insufficient anyway), but I am saving some cash at the moment. As I wrote on the previous page, my Dell Inspiron is starting to really show its age, and it doesn't suit my needs anymore. An extra bonus is that my father needs a new laptop as well, so I could easily sell him my old laptop for peanuts.
A relatively good one.Custom backgrounds on company machines? What kind of slack house is IT running there?
They are, and they work fine. Better than with older Dell models, actually. Those cannot handle the Thunderbolt connection to the monitors, so the trick is to plug them into the USB-C port instead. And reverse that once you're finished, unless you want the next user of the desk complain to IT that his newer Dell or MacBook doesn't work properly with the monitors.Looks like WD19 docks (yeah I can tell just from the edge I can see on the right and the one in the background), how well do they work with the MacBooks? Or are those connected differently?
Samsung 990 Pro SSDs are apparently failing fast, and nobody knows why
This is something that surprises me, building computers has been getting easier but they've never really reduced the number of sharp edges on components. Coolers are a good example as you mentioned and RAM modules can have very sharp edges on the PCBs..some blood (I cut a finger on the cooler fins)
Yeah but thinking about it... with thin metal sheets, you're bound to have sharp edges, can't really do anything about that other than bend said edges, which isn't really all that practical if you have like 100 of them right next to each other. same with rounding off edges of PCBs... with RAM in particular I'm not certain there's actually enough room to do it without introducing other problems.Coolers are a good example as you mentioned and RAM modules can have very sharp edges on the PCBs.
