Considering Some Upgrades

Today, 10:16 AM

Posted by Dr. J in Hardware
Hi All...

I've been thinking a lot lately that it would be nice to give my Lenovo B590 laptop a bit of an upgrade. Mostly I'd like to get drive caddy and replace the optical drive with a 500GB (ish) SSD to run the OS from, while holding on to the old 1TB HDD for bulk storage of various stuff as long as it still works.

I've also got the urge to upgrade the RAM. I've got 4 gigs in there at the moment, but It's only using one of two slots. I'm tempted to get two 8GB sticks... that'll sure be enough for a while anyway!

Here's some stuff I was looking at already...

Drive Caddy



I was wondering If anyone had any suggestions or advice on the mater.

Apple's Mac Pro has been ignored for so long that even Windows 10 mobile workstations are catching up on features and performance.

Take HP's latest Zbook laptop workstations , which were announced on Friday. These heavy built laptops -- which is why they are called mobile workstations -- have comparable memory and storage capacity technology to the Mac Pro, but excel in other areas.

The laptops feature Thunderbolt 3 ports, DDR4 memory, Intel's latest Kaby Lake-based Core and Xeon processors, and the latest GPUs from Nvidia and AMD.

By comparison the Mac Pro has Thunderbolt 2 ports, an old AMD GPU, DDR3 memory and Intel Xeon processors based on the Ivy Bridge architecture, which were released in 2013.

Microsoft yesterday announced it will target March and September as the launch months for all upcoming Windows 10 feature upgrades, a return to regularity that has been demanded by enterprise customers.

"We've ... heard our customers want more predictability and simplicity from [the Windows 10] update servicing model to help make deployments and updates of Microsoft products easier," said Bernardo Caldas, general manager of Windows marketing, in a Thursday post to a company blog.

To make that happen, Caldas said, Microsoft is committing to a twice-annual release schedule for the operating system's feature upgrades, and will aim for code finalization and launch in March and September -- six-month intervals.
