    Large Monitor upgrade from LG 43UN700-B (latest IPS version) for strictly office work and 4k movies, please help.

    I have a 43UN700-B that I thinking of replacing. I do not game at all, and the monitor is used for only desktop office work, music production and 4k movies. I sit 3-1/2 feet from my monitor for 6-8 hours a day and I really need crisp text, so I would like to find a large SRGB IPS 4K panel...

    Intel laptops now under attack

    HP G56 laptop won't boot with SSD in

    most older hp machines in which they have NOT updated the bios, are locked per say to only allow sata2 ssd drives. look into a older intel x25m 80, 120 or 160GBP. those should work, and are pretty cheap. certainly not as fast at the current ssd drives, but still significantly snappier than...
