    I've had my Unicomp Classic 101 for about 4 years now and it's served my perfectly well so far. key switches feel just as the day I bought it.

    Big boye.

    20180502_193458.jpg

    Early 2011 MacBook Pro 15in. It's the 1440x900 glossy, 2.2GHz i7-2720QM, 8GB RAM and HD 6750M.

    Was free, can't complain. If I had to complain then the enter key is a little small for my liking and it isn't the fastest thing ever, but it runs much faster than the old one.

    Also fans. They get loud.

    Well, you can, but you have to backup all of your personal data, wipe your drive, and start fresh. Highly annoying, but it’s not so bad.

    Seeing that Graphic cards got cheaper again do you guys think that they are going to get even cheaper or that will they become more expensive again?

    Depends on whether mining dies or has a resurgence. I'd say it's too early to tell.

    RIP in firey pieces, little 19 year old MOSFET. No longer shall you have to regulate voltage for a 700MHz Athlon, your brothers have that covered for you.

    One of my old graphics cards caught fire a couple days ago, it was an older amd radeon 7770 and I am wondering if it caught fire because I didn't put the power connector in.

    Nah, I'd focus on getting a more powerful video card first. That 6400 is good enough for gaming, for now.

    I had Vista on an old PC, it sucked. WiFi went out, but then I installed Linux and everything worked again.
