  • With a 2-4 core modern CPU it is not the core count beyond 2 that matters but the clock speed. Hence the faster processor is the better choice and you may perceive the difference in speed. Sadly ...
  • The correct answer is: either GPU should support a resolution such as you describe indistinguishably. If they only have 2gb of VRAM pushing a 4k display would be dicey. The CPU is nearly irrelevant ...
  • I find it difficult to believe the association between your Excel macro problem and Adobe CC is anything other than coincidental. If this is a ten year old macro and you have not revised it all ...
  • What is it you can not do or think you are missing with your current GPU bolted to that now very old and by current standards very slow CPU? Whether or not it is worth investing more $ into is ...
  • I believe the best bang for the Apple buck, if there is such a thing, is the 13 inch Macbook Pro used with an external monitor of up to retina resolution. That would be my preference over the ...
  • I think you would be best off avoiding 4k entirely. You do not have the CPU or GPU horsepower to process let alone view 4k. The least expensive path is currently a Kaby Lake CPU and a 27 inch 4k ...
  • It would help if you describe the problem.
  • Current MBPs by using Skylake instead of Kaby lake miss out on marginally useful  enhancements to battery driven 4k processing which is irrelevant to 99% of MBP buyers--Apple's big error was ...
  • Perhaps Sony has cheated by not explaining more about XAVC in the camera manual (I have no idea). If you research more about the format you may find that editing requires conversion or a higher end ...
  • I assume you know that 43 lenses require an adapter to be used with m43. If you have not handled these cameras you need to so as to compare bulkitude, viewfinders (EVF vs Pentamirror) and speed of ...
  • Without samples it is impossible to know what you mean by "noisy" as lenses do not cause what most would interpret as noise. If you are upping the ISO too far and shooting jpegs that is a dicey ...
  • The simple but snarky sounding answer is that inconsistent recognition of attached storage regardless of interface is a perennial problem in OSX. I use both OSX and Windows and there are reasons ...
  • I presume this is a personal trip. My point of view while traveling, particularly if to once in a lifetime destinations: Enjoy the moment more than worry about taking pictures. A professional has ...
  • A sort of different opinion: Those who vote no should turn off graphics acceleration and see if they feel it makes any difference in overall throughput. It actually might, depending on what you do, ...
  • The head could have clogged. Unplug the power cord count to 30 and try again. I have the same printer that I wish I used more frequently but it still works well enough. With infrequent use even ...
  • You have to be aware of power supply issues as that venerable system was built to do what Apple wanted to let you do and not necessarily what you want to do. Apple is now promising a new "modular" ...
  • Apple drives its 5k panels with an AMD notebook part that has less horsepower than your 960. I currently drive my 4k panel with an nVidia 970 but I do not recall issues using an older 670 either. ...
  • When you say five year old laptop you could either have a core 2 duo or Sandy Bridge class CPU and with either probably have Intel Graphics. Before you do anything make sure you are backing up your ...
  • The cameras from Oly and Panasonic stratify about the same. Sensors are 16 or 20mp. Rangefinder or dSLR style. 1080 or 4k video. The 4k oriented ones, particularly the Panasonics have high end ...
  • As you are aware wider angle lenses are less flattering to people. As such I would consider a focal length in the 35-50 mm range for that size sensor (you can experiment a bit for what you like ...
