Q: T480 reviews and comments

Hi guys, I am planning to purchase the T480. I am a Linux user, therefore, I will be installing Ubuntu 18.04. I will use VirtualBox to run a windows system which will be used to do word, excel, visio stuff. This will run through out my work day. Apart from that, I will also be spinning up other ubuntu VMs to run / test software and apps occassionally. The config I have in mind for the T480 is as below:- Intel Core i7-8650U Processor (8MB Cache, up to 4.2GHz)14.0" FHD (1920 x 1080), IPS,Anti-Glare,250nit32GB(16+16) DDR4 2400MHz SODIMMIntegrated Graphics (Intel UHD Graphics 620)1TB Solid State Drive PCIe-NVMe M.2 2280 OPAL 2.0 So I am opting for the integrated graphics as I will not be playing any games or doing any graphics / video editing related stuff. Also so that I can save on battery consumption. However, I also notice that if I opt for the MX150 graphic card instead, there will be 2 heatpipes resulting in better cooling system. So, I would appreaciate some advise on this. Is it ok to go with the intergrated graphics with the work I do? Will the system heat up if running multiple VMs ?Should I invest on the MX150 for better cooling ? And will there be significant usage of battery with this ?Overall, what is the advise. Also, if I should be patient and wait for the T490 assuming it will be launched in Jan / Feb 2019. I've used the x240 before and I did experience massive heat on the bottom of the laptop. The X1 carbon 6th gen is very tempting as well, but you can only get a max of 16GB RAM. So, I'm dropping that. Appreciate all your inputs. Thanks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all,
I'm using Acronis True image v11 home, and it's VERY good at it's disk image backing up; helped me numerous times while setting up a dual boot on my laptop.

When i create the backups, it asks for an optional comment, so you can identify the backups later on. I always made good comments, but now i have numerous backups, i've just realised I don't actually know how to view those comments?!

If anybody knows how to, please give instructions!

Hi, just come across this File Metadata (free) which I think will interest you- seems very competent in tagging files.
At the bottom I've added a note about StyleFolder (free), which adds comments to folders.

If you want to add comments, tags, metadata to files, this is for you.
In some places it refers to XP and Vista, but is maintained and current for '10.

File Metadata - Download File Meta 1.3

1. Explorer with normal view of details pane for txt

2. Configuration screen for program
3. Result with several added editable fields and added comment
"It is pretty clear that Microsoft originally intended to ship a broader capability. What this package does is wire together pieces that were built into Windows in readiness, but never joined up: it connects Explorer's ability to see and edit metadata with NTFS's support for storing property data in an annex to any file, and so allowing metadata to be added to files of any type. And because Windows Search uses the same property system hooks as Explorer, you can also search using this metadata, both in Explorer and from the Start Menu (or Search charm). That all this takes just a 19K DLL (64-bit, release build) and some registry settings tells you how close Microsoft got.

One reason why Microsoft never shipped the complete solution is that all works well when the file is moved around between NTFS drives, but the metadata is lost when a file is, say, emailed, or moved to a FAT file system. Also, if your fil... Read more

Hi All,

I created this thread as an FAQ for the release of the new AVG 8. I thought we could use this for any discussions or issues about the new release. Here is what is known so far:

1.) It is unknown as to whether or not AVG 7.5 users will be automatically updated to AVG 8, although a comment on the board said they didn't think an auto update pushed will be forced.

2.) It has been known to be buggy and slow according to some of the C-Net reviews. This could be the sign of a new release or hopefully not a bad omen of what is to come from a once-great company.

3.) There are 3 versions of AVG 8.0:

a.) AVG Anti-Virus 8.0 Commercial Version: This is a paid version that includes Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Resident Shield, Root Kit Remover Real Time Protection with a Link Scanner that scans sights before you go to them and a Link Search, that indicates the safety of a sight before you go to them similar to McAfee Sight Adviser.

b.) AVG Internet Security 8.0: A paid version with all the features of (a) plus a software firewall

c.) AVG Anti-Virus Free 8.0: The free version that includes Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware scanning and the Link Search (Site Adviser clone)

Please indicate in this thread: (Discuss each that applies to you.)

1.) The version of AVG 8 you have installed.

2.) Any problems with the download or installation

3.) Any slowdown of your system.

4.) How different is the Free AVG 8 interface compared to the paid versions?

Hi,

As AOL subscriber.....and never arbitrarily joining the subculture whose whole MO is dissing them......now retainiing (in my opinion) good 9.0SE optimized for free while still enjoying my current broadband.....I recently got mail re their new browser....including little video tour.

Now, I have few issues with IE6.....as long as its fully patched. Am afraid to download this new, unknown AOL thing should it kill my IE6 and if I hate it, require reinstallation of IE...and all my custom settings.

Only review I found is here: http://www.lastpodcast.net/2006/10/0...ride-a-review/

A:New AOL Browser Reviews??

I loaded AOL Freeride on a computer for a customer two days ago. It did not mess with IE settings or cause any problems with the computer.

The only thing I did not like, was it added the the AOL security software back to this computer. This is the same package that let it get trashed by viruses to start with. I was able to replace the AV software with Avast and loaded some other antispyware software.

Hello all,

I need help to understand who reviews Windows 8 app games ? My app titled "10-Up" has so far been featured by the Video Game Island from Australia and as a developer from Australia many of my contacts are from here. Much of the information from Microsoft is good but only gets you so far.

Any Windows 8 Developers out there have tips to reaching out to other markets?
Or if you're a user, does an app like mine appeal to you?

10-Up app for Windows in the Windows Store

I don't intend to spam my app but more so interested in other peoples experiences in a currently under developed market (but surely growing)

For interest sake, my app is based on a popular game played on trains where you combine 4 numbers to become 10. Now you can play it in an app environment against a timer and with combo's etc.

Thanks in advance !

A:Windows 8 App Reviews

Hi wany

welcome to sevenforums

I have been running win 7 since december and I personally feel it substantially better than vista. Bugs in the early builds were video, raid, and some bios. by the time build 7100 came out most were resolved. If you gave us your computer specs we could tell you more.

I am buying a computer system for gaming... but here's the problem. I went to two sites that were recommended to me (Cyberpower and Ibuypower) but before ordering, I checked out their customer reviews... seems they were really bad.

Now my question is where can I find out which site has the fewest problems? I know that mostly only people who have had problems will bother to post, so I'm trying to take that into account.

Is Cyberpower really as awful as the reviews would indicate? I had configured a great system there but the reviews said that MANY of their systems were dead on arrival. At least one review said they had replaced the chosen parts with cheap subsitutes. (specifically the mother board and chip)

Short of googling every site out there that sells systems...what can I do to be sure I am dealing with someone I can trust?

or must i get a graphics card and if so, which other motherboard should I get that does not have built in graphics?

I have also looked at the MSI 865PE-Neo2 LISR2 but this combo is expensive and starts to put the system outside my budget
 

A:MSI K7N2G reviews

You can get an MSI or ASUS motherboard for about $80~100 without onboard video. Then spend $75 for a Ti4200-64mb if you want to do some serious gaming.

The onboard 3D video on the NForce2 will play 2001 games and older pretty good. The Ti4200 will allow your kids to play UT2003, Unreal2 and Half Life 2 fairly good... without a lot of money.

I'm using Ad-Aware 2007 Plus for spyware, and NOD32 as anti-virus.

I just had viruses removed from my hard drive and Windows XP. The technician who helped me installed NOD32, instead of Avast which was installed before the successful virus attacks. My browser was also changed from IE 6 to Mozilla Foxfire, which the tech thinks is less susceptible to virus attacks.

This may be a controversial topic!

I am seeking advice on where the best product reviews for hardware can be found in print and on the web.

For print, to date I have been relying mostly on PC Magazine. I don't always agree with the fine points of their assessments, but I do trust their overall testing and reporting. Moreover, in all the years they have been publishing, I'm not aware of them being sued, at least successfully, over a biased product review. And since they give both the parameters as to how the test was done, and the means for one to repeat the test themselves, I consider that pretty solid. PC Week and InfoWorld come in as close seconds.

Are there better or more up-to-date print sources?

How about on the Web?

What I mean is, for those of us who work in small shops, it would be nice to have the code review process like larger shops do. Also, I like to work on some independent development projects at home (as most of us do I think) when the inspiration hits me (rare).

The only problem I can see with this is the theft of intellectual property by unscrupulous developers.

As expected the HD 7970 puts up a good showing. Earlier estimates of improvement of ~30% in gaming and ~50+% in compute tasks (over the HD 6970) seem pretty much spot on.
All in all a nice card - great power consumption, a little loud, and a nice bump in performance over the GTX 580 and HD 6970. Looks like a good overclocker with worthwhile gains over stock clocks. Very welcome after the HD 6950/6970's good OC potential / lacklustre OC performance.
