Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Speed Up Your Old Laptop Get an SSD!

If you have one of the newer notebooks from China, or perhaps an older laptop or notebook with a 2.5 inch Hard Disk, you might be looking for a way to make it faster and more power efficient. The answer of course is an SSD or an M.2 2242 SSD depending on the device.

Below are the links to the NewEgg pages I used as a reference in the video and the video I mentioned.
2.5 inch SSD: https://goo.gl/iddz24
M.2. 2242: https://goo.gl/o4s5Xa
My previous video on inexpensive notebooks.

So I just thought I would let folks know that you don’t need an expensive SSD to speed up your PC, or build that barebones mini PC.

That is all I have to say, since the video pretty much covers it all.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: The Full Review of The Lenovo X1 Carbon Laptop (6th Gen)

This video comes to us from Andrew over at AMDTech and covers the 14 inch Lenovo X1 Carbon 6th Gen , 14 inch laptop/notebook. This is a high end business class device that is perfect for large business and productivity.

The display is simply stellar, the available options are great and the price, while skyhigh will not scare off a major corporate IT department because the payback in productivity and the quality of the machine itself is excellent.

The battery life is good, the keyboard is beyond good, simply put, it is great! Certainly this is not a gaming laptop/notebook, but this is for getting work done!

I am not going to bore you with the specs, Andrew covers all of that in the video, so watch the video and subscribe to his channel to see great tech reviews that pull no punches!

This is primarily a heads-up post to let folks know that the Chuwi Lapbook Air noteBook is finally down to a price most reviewers said it was worth!

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: What To Do With An LT 2016u Netbook?

Gateway LT2016u

This video comes to us from none other than….US! I am sorry, the video is rather long and a bit rambling, but it does show that even some old equipment may be useful for something.

I actually got up very early this morning and brought along my trusty flash drive and got a newer version of Firefox to work on this ancient dinosaur! So we now have a functional Windows XP, (32 bit) spare PC for use as, uh, well, perhaps a web browsing device.

However with the 1024 x 600 display, we are not talking a great experience. The speakers also stink but if you plug in some external one the sound is excellent.

But hopefully folks will leave some comments on the YouTube channel suggesting to us what this thing might be good for. After all, a functional 10.1 inch notebook (yeah, I know, netbook), with WiFi, 3 full size USB 2.0 ports and reasonable battery life, along with a surprisingly huge hard drive (160 GB), is simply not something to toss in the trash.

So below you will find the video, sorry I sound tired but it was about 1 AM when I finally had reached my conclusions on what to do with this thing…

Tonight’s Video Worth Sharing: Replace Your Workshop Laptop With Something Better!

Much Better Than a Laptop/Notebook

I have been posting a series of videos on where I work/updating an ancient Gateway Mx6453 laptop/notebook and making it useful again.

So I have achieved success with that, but in truth, in our work environment we need something a bit better than a notebook PC.

It gets hot in the shop here and to be honest the main PC the boss uses is so out of date that we worry they may declare it a PC Historical monument! It is a Dell M6300 (Precision Line I believe).

It has absolutely the worst viewing angles of any laptop/notebook I have ever seen and is well on it’s way to dying, due to the heat/cold at work. It was created as a business class laptop and not one for a workshop, non-air-conditioned office type device.

This not so short video will cover my recommendations for a replacement of the aforementioned dinosaur.

Below are links to a few devices I mention in the video. But I always suggest shopping about for the best prices!

Zotac Ci327 Mini- PC : https://amzn.to/2MNM9L0
Viewsonic 22 inch IPS Monitor: https://amzn.to/2tibjsL
Silicon Power SSD: https://amzn.to/2ttmRsp
HyperX 8 GB DDR3L 1866 MHZ Ram : https://amzn.to/2KauD1F

So as usual, watch the video, Like the video, share the video on every piece of social media you have access to.

Here we go….
