  • $500 for a memory upgrade - seriously - you cannot be serious. Anyone with that sort of spending power/freedom - who, at the same time, is seemingly unable to judge/decide for themselves whether or ...
  • It appears so... https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/buy/compare-all-microsoft-365-products Note: Sometimes you may be able to purchase initially from somewhere like Amazon at a lower ...
  • You really don't know that. You say they "...aren't retail" - but someone is publicly selling them. A licence key is either legitimate (valid) - or it isn't - there really is no 'grey' area s such. ...
  • Replied in 'Free' etc...
    Nope - absolutely not - not at all. I am very happy that Microsoft are making money - from somewhere/someone else. And that, in turn, is what enables Microsoft to provide all the things that I and ...
  • That's interesting - that's more than a -90% discount (at least for Office 2019). Why would you think that they might not "still work fine" - any particular reason? Why should anyone need to "...ch ...
  • The way I look it - over a ten year period, that is £800 - fifteen years, £1,200 - twenty years, £1,600 - and on, and on - and on. Ouch! No doubt why Microsoft et al. absolutely love this business ...
  • Myself - I'm still using Office 2000. I use Excel pretty much every day - Word very occasionally/rarely - but otherwise, nothing else (I really ought to get around to learning to use Access). Offic ...
  • Both are recyclable to some degree or other. I suspect SSDs might even be 'easier' to recycle, having fewer, and more easily separable, mixed materials. The 'bulk' of an HDD is typically aluminium. ...
  • Created discussion thread Norton & Avast 'merger'
    It appears that Norton are buying Avast. https://www.theverge.com/2021/8/11/22619667/nortonlifelock-avast-merger-deal-anti-virus-cyber-security-software And, since AVG has been a part of Avast for ...
  • Sean - really!? :-O Indeed - as Obi-Wan Kenobi would undoubtably say; "These are not the folders you want to move".
  • That is more important to you - despite the potential 80% energy saving. Isn't that just exactly "...a symptom of much of modern society" (as you put it later, below). I think you are just ...
  • It's going to happen where you are - sooner or later. I have to disagree. I haven't used incandescent bulbs for probably some 15-20 years now - it seems incredulous to me that anyone still does. La ...
  • Added 1 photo to their gallery

  • 'Real MPG' more like 45 'ish miles per UK/Imperial gallon (roughly 35+ 'ish per US gallon)... https://www.fuelly.com/car/bmw/320d In no small part due to the realisation that diesels are actually ...
  • Sounds like a good idea - and perhaps somewhat overdue. bbc.co.uk: Sales of inefficient vacuum cleaners banned bbc.co.uk: Halogen lightbulb sales to be banned in UK European Commission: Off mode, ...
  • Firstly - 10x multilpier (of a 100 MHz source/base clock) 997.56 MHz is not overclocking in any sense. That is just 1 GHz - which is way below the nominal CPU base speed - so essentially it was ...
  • Not necessarily. In my experience, CPU-Z's "CPU" tab reports some details/specification which are really only the product 'name' - not really the operating values - for example "Intel® Core™ ...
  • The CPU design features 'Configurable TDP'. So Dell have most likely designed the laptop to run at the higher base clock speed. It is essentially a form of Intel sanctioned over-clocking (and/or ...
  • That is actually a quote of what you (Vernon) had just previously written (in your reply to me ). It appears that Eduardo hadn't quite mastered the DPReview 'Reply with quote' facility - so in his ...
  • Yes. I use Macrium Reflect Free Edition running from their bootable Rescue Disc CD. https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree Using the 'Rescue Disc' avoids any possible complications of trying to back ...
