I would rather use a 96 Gateway with IE5 than use Edge.

I use Microsoft Edge because no other browser gets 1080p from Netflix. Chrome and Firefox get 720 at best.

That's as far as I use Edge.

Any recommendations on all-in-one's? I was looking at the HP 27-n110 Pavilion w/8 GB RAM & 1 TB HDD ($900 @ newegg or best buy) or the HP Envy 27-p014 Touch Screen 12 GB RAM & 1 TB SSHD ($900 on clearance @ best buy).

I was real tempted to go Apple, the salesman almost sold me the wireless keyboard that recharges itself just from house lighting.

Note: You can get the mini and keep your old monitor for just under $500. Also it can be partitioned to run 2 operating systems and you choose which one you desire to fire up.

Its little and would take up no space.

Need help, with windows 10 when I go to cbssports.com and look at the draft prospects I cant get the forty yard dash to display unless I right click on it and open a new page then there is no scroll bar. It limits how many players you can see unless you reduce the magification until you cant read it anymore.

How do you fix this crap?

Just got myself a nice upgrade, went from a ASUS ROG laptop that was five years old to a custom CyberPower, with a curved monitor to boot. I'm in nerd heaven.

Bought a Dell 18 months ago or ever how long the warranty was. No sound for my old Boston Acoustic analog speakers, Dell did a remote connection with me and fixed the issue, I guess adding drivers or some patch they put on my computer.

Guess what? Soon as the warranty ended ----------------- so did the sound. Really?
