My PC and other Tech

As of April 2019, my main computer is a home-built Windows PC in an older Dell minitower case.  Windows 10 Pro 64-bit edition and I jumped in early with the 1809 Update.  This update has a recently introduced bug that can delete user files if the default folders (Think: Docs, Music, Pics, etc) have been changed but files remained or were added to the original c:\users\username\... folders.  While I set up those default folders on a 2nd HDD, I did not lose any files, as I didn't leave any stuff in the original locations.

 

I upgraded the RAM with an additional 8 GB and am still on the lookout for a used Core i7 CPU to help content load faster.  The i3 still runs decently.

 

Specifications include:

   Gigabyte motherboard

   Intel Core i3 CPU

   16 GB of DDR3 RAM

   Windows 10 & programs are installed

   on a Samsung 850 Pro SSD

   (2) 1 TB Western Digital HDDs

   MSI 1 GB GDDR5 graphics card

   500 W Antec PSU

   APC 650 UPS

   Samsung HD 22" monitor

   Logitech K800 wireless, backlit keyboard

   and M510 mouse

 

I back up my data to an external HDD and disconnect it after backing up.

 

For mobile computing, I rely on a rebuilt Lenovo Thinkpad.  At some point, I'd like to ugrade to a Surface Pro.

 

My smartphone at present is the Google Pixel 2. 

 

I have an original iPad & a Mini 2.  Both still work fine but I can't add most any app or even update old apps.

 

I now have an older MacBook Pro, which the WiFi drops, but the Ethernet port works fine.
