    Oldest Macbook pro that can take current release OS?

    I am a Mac newb. I've dabbled with them but never got or cared to use one. My girlfriend told me she wants one for work purposes for christmas. She had an older macbook when I met her, but it died. She has been without a laptop for years, but she is an Apple user.. I cannot wrap my head around...

    garage computer

    I forgot I even had a Dell D620 that actually has OBD II software and a cable on it. It's a little slow but might work for me

    garage computer

    What are some recomendations for a cheap, garage computer? Just built a 20x25 unheated detached garage. Would like a cheap computer capable of playing youtube at ~480P for the purpose of vehicle repairs and such and playing music.. It will be heated while in use. I have a 135k btu salamander...

    Android phone as permenent modem/ hotspot

    Well, this service is great. I'm getting about 6/2 with it.. I live in the middle of nowhere, BUT I get 2 bars of VZW 4G so it's good... The ZTE Blade cellphone is actually a nice phone for $50 too AND it has a prolonged charging feature which keeps it around 50% charged once it notices you have...

    Android phone as permenent modem/ hotspot

    I was running the AT&T Ipad service/ Sim through a Huawei router before they shut it down.. I put my phones sim in it, but it comes up with a webpage saying I have no data. I know it's because it passes different APN's.. I can try it with the Visible sim but I fear it will do the same. I might...

    Android phone as permenent modem/ hotspot

    It automatically tries to connect to an EVDO modem if I plug something in. I'm going to place the phone wherever it's signal is best. I'm hoping that is within a good signal distance to where the router connects to it's wired connection, or at least somewhere I can get a wired connection if not...

    Android phone as permenent modem/ hotspot

    No need for like a weekly/ daily switch timer? I was thinking to turn the charger on/off and allow charging and discharge based on how long it took to charge to 80%

    Android phone as permenent modem/ hotspot

    The only services that I can get for internet here is satellite or 4G... My At&T Ipad plan finally got cracked down on and terminated. Knew it was coming since Febuary.. Looking for a better option, I turned on my cell hotspot, fired up an old Cradlepoint CTR35 I had laying around, and set Wifi...

    Why don't PC cases have 5.25" external drive bays anymore?

    When I built my Ryzen 3600 system that is my current system, it was my first custom build since 2013. I HAD to have a case that had a 5.25" drive bay for a burner.. Now, the burner which was one out of one of my older computers quit working a while ago probably from not being used. I have ~6...

    Mafia vs Mafia DE

    I have never played the first 2 Mafia's but really like the third.. The 2002 version of Mafia is available on Steam as well as the re make.. The Re make has some bad reviews due to missing content. Is the modern version better or worse? I HATE Doom 3 BFG because of it's missing content, but it...

    $200 upgrade from a 1070?

    I see the 5700 XT is neck and neck with the 2070 Super and it's $390 brand new for an MSI Mech

    $200 upgrade from a 1070?

    I'll have to see how things go with the prices. A $285 1080TI would be sweet. BUT, Watchdogs Legion is on my radar and I might want RTX. Since my framerate is limited to 60 FPS it might not be far off
