Re: Best laptops for photo editing

Thank you for your responses. Obviously using a external monitor would be the best, maybe as an option in the future. I've checked the new Zenbook line and they seem to have very good displays at a fair price. The Dell XPS line (with 4K screens) is also very good but expensive. Searching a little de...

Best laptops for photo editing

Hi all,

Currently looking for a laptop specifically to future professional photo editing, Macbooks are the obvious choices for their superb factory calibrated displays, but they are expensive. I wanted to look for other options if possible.

Cheers

Re: BIOS not showing up my SSDs

I don't find any separate RAID page. I remember when I had the RAID setup some years ago on this same machine I had to press CRTL+I a little after boot to show up the RAID config tool. From what I read the fact that the menu for the Intel RAID tool isn't showing up after boot it's because the BIOS i...

Re: BIOS not showing up my SSDs

As just brew it says, I can't see them on the BIOS but they are both working fine under Win 10. So in case 2 happening as Chrispy_ mentions can I assume it would be easier just to wipe out all the drives, and if so, what is the easiest way to do this?

Thank you.

BIOS not showing up my SSDs

Hi all, Needed a bit of an advice about two situations I'm having on my PC, current specs on sig. So my 2 Corsair SSDs work normally under Windows 10 (one has the OS and the other is a Steam library) but I can't seem to find them on the BIOS. Since I wanted to go back to my old Raid-0 setup with bot...

Re: Fighting tendonitis

Bought a new mice for home. It helps.

Exercise seems to make the pain go away faster, which is good. Still trying to be off the computer so I can relax the wrist more.

Gotta buy a new mice for work to and a wrist rest. I just want not to get worse, don't want to have any complications on the future.

Re: New PC?

I like the 6 year warranty on the NZXT one. It's a bit pricey but it think it would fit nice in the case! So I decided to leave my components as they are for now, and focus in my peripherals. Keyboard http://www.corsair.com/pt-pt/gaming-keyboards/vengeance-gaming-keyboards?keyboardmodel=K70|&key...

Hi guys. I might have an option to sell my full system to a co-worker (on my sig). It could be an opportunity to make an upgrade.

Don't know what it's like in the US but in the UK your employer is legally required to meet certain ergonomic standards - we'd ask for DSE desk assessment.
