So I replaced it with a new one, however I never received a restore disk as the operating system was preinstalled and offered no such disk. Where can I get a copy of the operating system (Windows 10 pro) to reinstall onto the new hard drive so I can get back up and running? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSPhillipT admin October 2020 Hello @impulsepaul You can download and install Windows 10 by using a Flashdrive on another computer and going to this link to download the Windows 10 Installer.  Once you run it, you can install it onto your Flashdrive to which you then install onto your Dell computer.   Here is a guide on how to perform that; https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/2288/how-to-perform-a-clean-install-of-windows-10  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 814 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Are you looking for a TV or a Monitor? Typically monitors would not have speakers but may offer better latency or performance. TV's would typically offer better sound and larger options. If you're interested in a monitor, I'd suggest the Dell https://www.microcenter.com/product/620755/dell-se2719hr-27-full-hd-75hz-hdmi-vga-freesync-ips-led-monitor I'd recommend a Westinghouse if you're interested in a TV. https://www.microcenter.com/product/606209/westinghouse-wr40fx2019-40-class-(395-diag)-full-hd-smart-roku-led-tv I hope this helps!

Well... needless to say getting into the store with the whole COVID 19 fiasco was a bit of a pain and i didnt immediately want to rush back to the store the same day to make a return when the processor didnt work out of box after the bios update.  I figured the BIOS update just didnt take so I held onto the processor till I could afford a X470 Gaming pro MAX (The MAX edition supports ryzen 3000 out of the box for clarification) it has now been a little over a month, I installed the processor into the new board and fired it up. To my surprise unlike the last board this one actual showed a CPU error light.  I went through the steps of trying to boot the PC with one stick of ram in the specified DIMM2 Slot. I made sure all the connections were solid and made sure the processor didnt somehow get any compound on the components and make an issue that way.  In conclusion I think the processor is bad but I am outside of the 30 day return policy.  What can I do without spending another $180ish on another new processor? The ryzen 3 1200 I have does not like the RAM I bought for the 3600 and thus has been giving me complications.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin June 2020 Depending on the situation, our managers are able to make exceptions and give extensions on the return period, but you would need to speak to one of them about it directly. If you're not too far from the store I'd just recommend coming in and asking, if you can't make it back in easily, we can get your information to our managers to have them reach out to you about it. If you'd like to go that route, send me a private message with your contact information and the reference number from your receipt (if you still have it). 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Larry49 ✭ June 2020 edited June 2020 I kno9w this is way past return time. Dur to Covid-19, I was waiting until my computer advisor would be able to help me set up.  It is a refurbished Dell purchased on 3/13. Ref # [removed for privacy]. Today (Sunday, June 28) I finally took the computer out of the box. It is a Dell Model # E5440. According to Dell, it is supposed to have a built-in camera, but it does not. Is it still exchangeable? (It would need to have my few downloads scrubbed - I got it up and running in preparation for meeting with said computer advisor.) 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin June 2020 The computer is pretty far outside the 15-day return period, so it would be up to one of the managers at the store. If you're not too far you're always welcome to come in and ask, or we can get a message over to them to have them reach out to you. If you'd like to do that, let us know and we'll send you an email follow-up for that.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 814 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I am afraid. I may break it if maintenance is required on the cooling system. Is this pc liquid cooled? https://www.microcenter.com/product/613824/powerspec-g464-gaming-computer This is another one I was looking at which I believe is liquid cooled. My other option I guess to to have one built. They just don’t have all the components available at the micro center near me. https://www.microcenter.com/product/624234/dell-alienware-aurora-r10-gaming-computer 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSMikeW admin July 2020 The Powerspec system is liquid cooled, but it's an AIO system. AIO water cooling systems are closed loop systems. You'll never do any maintenance or have to refill it at all. Basically you'll just run it until the pump dies and replace it at that point, which should be several years down the road or longer. It's a simple solution even if you're building on your own. You attach the water block just like any after market air cooler and mount the radiator like case fans essentially. We can certainly do a custom build for you and we do custom water cooling loops as well. Custom loops are different, as they are assembled, filled and leak tested. They do have to be drained, cleaned and refilled from time to time. Custom water cooling loops do offer far greater performance, the pumps you'll find, either the D5 or DDC have considerably higher flow rates than what you'll find in AIO's. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook dpt ✭ July 2020 TSMikeW said: The Powerspec system is liquid cooled, but it's an AIO system.

I need help narrowing my search. I'm interested in buying a laptop to use for school only. I'm not a gamer and I don't watch movies on a laptop. I don't want the most expensive model, just something reliable. It'll primarily be used for papers, powerpoints, excel, internet searches. I don't want some Flintstones device but I'm not a gamer and won't be making videos/movies and doing elaborate things on this laptop. I want it to have good "speed." When I turn it on, I want it to fire up quickly. When I get on the internet, I need it to do its thing quickly. I'll be in school for 5 years so it needs to last 5 full years. Any recommendations? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answers TSTonyV admin July 2020 Accepted Answer If you just need it for basics like this, honestly you have quite a lot of options available. If speed is your primary concern, I'd look for something with an SSD, at least 8GB of RAM and an i5 or Ryzen 5 processor.   Do you have a price range in mind? That would help us get a better recommendation for you.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin July 2020 Accepted Answer Papers and powerpoints don't take up much data, it's usually photos, videos or music that take up the most space, so even if you only went with a 256GB SSD you'd probably have enough space. Of course, it's always nice to have more, and there are a lot of laptops with 512GB SSD's that are in that price range. Here's a couple I would look at: https://www.microcenter.com/product/621349/lenovo-ideapad-5-156-laptop-computer---grey https://www.microcenter.com/product/622881/acer-aspire-5-a515-44-r2hp-156-laptop-computer---black Between these two, I'd personally be partial to the Acer because the Ryzen 5 CPU in it has six cores as opposed to the Intel i5 in the Lenovo with four cores, however Lenovo is probably a little better/more consistent than Acer when it comes to quality assurance on their products. That said, I think you would be happy either way.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin July 2020 Accepted Answer For HP and Dell, here are similar models to what was sent to you above: https://www.microcenter.com/product/613087/hp-15-dy1037nr-156-laptop-computer---silver https://www.microcenter.com/product/625255/dell-inspiron-15-3593-156-laptop-computer---black 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers mtroup85 ✭ July 2020 Around $500 or less would be ideal. $1,000 max. The other thing is I’d want it to have enough storage so I could easily store 5 years of papers, PowerPoints, etc. I don’t think that should be an issue in 2020 but it’s important.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook mtroup85 ✭ July 2020 Sounds good.

This article will help you in identifying both. Because there are so many varieties of laptops and nearly as many batteries for them, makers of replacement batteries (such as Inland) do not always have every single battery part number or laptop model number in their compatibility database. Some batteries even have multiple part numbers! Therefore, it is sometimes necessary to try a few searches before finding your compatible replacement. Below are individual guides for the different laptop manufacturers: Apple Laptop Model Number Searching by laptop model with Apple is easy. Apple will change the model of the battery without changing the model of the unit. To guarantee you find the correct battery, you will need the battery model number from the battery itself. Alternatively, our service centers are always available to help and can identify exactly what you need given your unit’s serial number. Apple model numbers can be found in small text on the bottom of the laptop. They are formatted as “A####”. Resulting Search Term: A1369 Replacement Laptop Battery Battery Part/Model Number Apple battery model numbers follow the same formatting and are found on the battery inside of the unit.

There is also occasionally a DPN (Dell Part Number) for the entire unit, which can be searched as a backup. Resulting Search Term: Inspiron 5520 Replacement Laptop Battery Backup Search Term: 95N6J Replacement Laptop Battery Battery Part/Model Number Dell batteries always have a ‘type’ number which is what you'll need to search for when looking for a replacement. There is also a DPN found within the serial number on a small white sticker. DPNs are 5 characters long, so leading ‘0’s can be discarded. Resulting Search Term: 8858X Replacement Laptop Battery Resulting Search Term: 04NW9 Replacement Laptop Battery HP Laptop Model Number HP model numbers can be found on the bottom of the laptop, or underneath the battery if it is equipped with an external removable battery. They commonly have ‘product’ numbers and ‘model’ numbers, either are good to try. The generic model is generally not specific enough. Resulting Search Term: E8A11UA Replacement Laptop Battery Resulting Search Term: m7-j120dx Replacement Laptop Battery Backup Search Term: ENVY TouchSmart 17 Replacement Laptop Battery Battery Part/Model Number HP batteries always have a model type, typically found in a box near the top of the battery label. They are generally 4 characters long, with two letters followed by two numbers (e.g. MU06). Internal batteries are often 6 characters long, adding ‘XL’ at the end (e.g. CM03XL). This is the best number to use in your search. There are also part numbers and spare numbers, always with 6 digits-hyphen-3 digits. Both are good search terms. Finally, there are often many compatibilities listed. You should not need to worry about these, but they are there in case you would like to cross-reference.

Jose_Guijarro_01 ✭ May 2020 edited June 7 in General Discussion Yesterday I went to the Microcenter store to have them install a NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 2GB graphics card on my computer that I bought right there, this graphics card was recommended to me in the Microcenter forum but in the store the customer service technician told me that it doesn't fit in the computer case and then they installed me a GeForce GT 710; When I got home I started to investigate and I could verify that in the Microcenter store they sell a Dell OptiPlex 9020 SFF Desktop Computer (Refurbished) Intel Core i7 4770 3.4GHz Processor; 32GB DDR3-1600 RAM; 512GB SSD; NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 2GB; SKU 993048 is the product identification code, and as you can see, it has the graphics card installed that I wanted it to put on my computer; I would like to know if this can be solved for me in Microcenter, that is to say that if finally you can put the graphic card that I want NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 2GB.

A dock is more meant to add functionality to a laptop. And unless you have USB C with DP Alt mode, you would be required to install software for the dock, which would be a problem. KVM is meant to switch your peripherals between the two systems with the press of a button. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 814 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I put in a GEFORCE GTX 1050 Ti Low Profile and after a while my power supply seems to have died. I'm trying to replace it, but every time I look up PSU upgrade for the 790, the 790 I have doesn't come up. The 1050 requires at least 300w itself and I just had a H250AD-00 PSU which is only 250w. Which PSUs, the size of the H250AD-00, are able to run my setup? Any help would be greatly appreciated. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTonyV admin May 2020 Hello @cane_63106! Welcome to the Community.  I believe the power supply in these units are a proprietary form factor used by Dell. You may be able to replace it with a TFX form factor power supply, like this one: https://www.microcenter.com/product/457439/solid-gear-350-watt-mtfx-non-modular-power-supply However, I'm not 100% sure if it will work. Alternatively, you could bring the system to our repair desk at the store and see if our service technicians could order a replacement part.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 814 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

The idea of a sleeper PC is always something I've played around with in my head, since I love the concept of sleeper cars as well.  People thinking the 2700k is a high end part is pretty funny though.

There is not an official Microsoft software / process for transferring programs between two different computers between operating systems - typically you will need to install the programs again from the manufacturer's website / disks etc. for the programs to your new PC. You can try using third party software such as EaseUS: https://www.easeus.com/pc-transfer/copy-installed-software.html but it is not something we would provide troubleshooting on as it is not a software we provide support for / sell at Micro Center.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin April 2020 Kelvin said: I purchased an Inland Premium 1TB m.2 pcie SSD back in October of 2019 from you guys.

But if you can help me out with this, I'd appreciate it.  Be well, Jimbe'  Hello Jimbe, your personal files and documents can certainly be easily transfered using multiple methods such as Flash drives, external hard drives, or even using the file sharing permissions. The issue with programs is that they modify multiple areas of windows making transferring them difficult, in the case of upgrading to windows 10 some older programs are not compatible and have newer version that work in windows 10. This is why a fresh install or download is recommended on newer computers. Unfortunately, we do not have any software or product that would make transferring a program between versions of windows possible. Kelvin said: I purchased an Inland Premium 1TB m.2 pcie SSD back in October of 2019 from you guys. After specifically asking an employee which one is necessary for my Macbook Air it seems I was recommended the wrong item, Now it was not until recently that I got a chance to try and insert the ssd to find out that it was an incorrect fit. Being that I still have the receipt and the ssd is in mint condition, what will be the best case scenario as for the possibilities of an exchange for the correct edition that is suitable for my MacBook Air? Kelvin, we offer a one year warranty with many of our inland drives, however this doesn't normally cover incompatibility.

Yes you can change the hard drive in this. A 2.5" 7200rpm drive is a tough find.

Liquid cooling requires a lot of extra maintenance if you're building a custom open-loop. For a pre-built with a closed-loop AIO like this, there isn't really any extra maintenance you'd have to do.  If we want to be technical, yes, if the water cooler starts leaking you run the risk of damaging your other components, and since you're dealing with both a pump and fans there's technically more points of failure. However, failures like that are pretty rare and I don't think your overall risk on the system is much higher than it would be with an air cooler.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook dpt ✭ July 2020 TSTonyV said: dpt said: well it will be my first gaming pc and I’ve heard liquid cooled PCs require a lot of maintenance and was advised against it since it could damage my components if it broke.

You can also check in device manager under display adapters.  You won't be able to install anything that's really powerful because the kinds of power supplies that Dell provides with those systems are pretty weak. You could do something like a low-profile GT710 or GT1030, but that's about the top end of what you could install in those models.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 814 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

That said: Windows 10 lightweight support internet gaming - specifically, tabletop simulator on Steam; my current laptop has a lot of lag despite a good internet connection in the house. (HP Envy M6) I will probably also want to cast from this machine good camera and mic - the camera on my work machine is blurry (Dell Vostro) backlit keyboard, ports to support wireless keyboard and mouse. i probably wont use a headset, as I hate having things on my ears. Dell offered me an Inspiron 15 5000 at $600 based on these "specs" I am not a super user, I no longer need to use my personal machine for work, and I really just want the few things I do to work well. i would prefer to be frugal, but my last laptop lasted 7 years, so I'd like to get something that will keep me going for awhile again. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments LandShark admin February 16 edited February 16 Hello @kgfPatsfan I'd recommend a few different things, but your store's selection may vary. I'd recommend checking these out. Be sure to make sure that your store is selected at the top of the page. https://www.microcenter.com/search/search_results.aspx?Ntk=all&sortby=pricelow&N=4294967288+4294817517+4294817438+4294819898+4294820736+4294820632+4294808474+4294808800&myStore=false As for my recommendations, I'd suggest a couple of different things, depending on your budget and your store's stock. ASUS Zenbook 14 Q407IQ-BR5N4 14" Laptop Computer - Grey; AMD Ryzen 5 4500U 2.3GHz Processor; NVIDIA GeForce MX350 Graphics; 8GB RAM; 256GB Solid State Drive HP Pavilion 15-ec0003ca 15.6" Gaming Laptop Computer Factory Refurbished - Black; AMD Ryzen 7 3750H 2.3GHz Processor; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB GDDR5; 8GB DDR4-2400 RAM; 512GB Solid State Drive Acer Nitro 5 AN515-54-52QW 15.6" Gaming Laptop Computer - Black; Intel Core i5-9300H Processor 2.4GHz; NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR6; 16GB DDR4-2666 RAM; 1TB Solid State Drive I hope this helps, but please let me know if you have any questions. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook kgfPatsfan ✭ February 16 Thank you. I would say the ASUS is just a little more than i wanted to spend and is beautifully lightweight Doesn't seem to have a way to cable in to my modem to diagnose or overcome connection issues. The HP Pavilion seems to have almost everything I want - maybe a little on the heavy side, but I have better computer luggage than I used to and it might not be as important as I think it is. I could stretch to afford this too. The Acer Nitro is out; I'm just not willing to spend this much money on myself. My local store (Cambridge) appears to have all of these. Although you offered choices (thank you!) you did not enlarge on why these choices match my terribly vague specs. I'd like to hear why you chose these, but I'm happy enough with choice 2 that I probably don't need reinforcement. If I go with the HP, can you recommend a mouse and keyboard? Any reason I should not go with a simple and cheap option? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin February 16 I based my recommendation on the specifications you needed and the availability I could see. The HP is refurbished, however, it's a great option with a dedicated GPU. (GTX 1650) which will offer great performance for the games you're interested in. I wanted to give you options at multiple price points that would offer you good, better, best for the price you mentioned. I'd recommend a decent keyboard, but it would be mostly dependant on your budget and your needs. I spend my time working from a keyboard so I spend more than most. If I were looking for cheap yet quality, I'd buy something like the Redragon K530 Draconic 61 and the ASUS TUF 3 I'm a fan of Mechanical Brown Switches, and I like the wrist wrest on the Cooler Master CK530 and I like the shape and light weight performance from the Glorious Model D. I'd be happy to recommend others if you're unhappy with these. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook kgfPatsfan ✭ February 16 Thank you! Did you have any thoughts on the Inspiron Dell wants to sell me? I am not afraid of refurbished, and the specs of this machine address several of the things I know I want - thank you! My computer needs have atrophied extremely over the past few years, as I have moved more firmly to separate work and home. My home machine only needs to be able to game, and I am absolutely not a power gamer. I have extensive access to Office products and storage at work; I do not anticipate typing more than chat comments on this machine. Also, i will be typing and mousing from the depths of my comfy chair. I have been perfectly happy with a $14.99 logitech mouse/keyboard combo that ran off the same USB for a year, but like all cheap thinks, it eventually broke. Tempted by anything named redragon - I'm Welsh. The discussion I found on brown switch online takes me back - clicky keys! pressure resistance! I used to care so much about these things! I am definitely thinking hard about these options. Both of these mice seem subtly right-handed - I am left-handed. I do mouse with right hand buttons - I started my professional life in tech support and needed to be able to use other people's mice - but I use my left hand. Thank you for your time. I will definitely go with the HP. I will think about the redragon keyboard. I will keep looking at mice. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook LandShark admin February 17 Hmm, the Dell Inspiron that they have recommended for you doesn't have dedicated graphics. It does have Intel's new Xe integrated graphics which will perform better than the previous generations by a fair amount. It may still struggle to offer you decent framerates for tables with multiple assets or games that have a slightly higher graphics fidelity. That being said, it is a thin and light laptop which would be great for travel. It's an extremely portable laptop. Especially for a 15.6" inch. I prefer the brown switches for their tactile feedback! The blue switches are great too, however, they are quite a bit louder than reasonable. Especially since you mentioned you'll be using your laptop microphone. If you're planning on hosting meetings or other things, I might suggest a more quiet keyboard, like the Logitech you mentioned. Membrane keyboards are typically more quiet than mechanical. Red switches are very fast and typically a bit quieter, however, they are a bit too sensitive for my liking. (I have heavy hands that depress the key when I rest it on the keyboard.) Check out our recent article on Mechanical or Membrane. If noise is an issue for you, one can always purchase O-rings to dampen the noise that the key makes when bottoming out. Sorry, I didn't think to offer you an ambidextrous mouse. I'm a righty, so I recommend what I use/know. I don't have much experience with ambidextrous mice, however, the Logitech G G203 is great for an inexpensive yet high-quality option. Another mouse that I have experience with would be the Logitech G PRO It does have mouse buttons that can be switched for left-handed use.

If you just need to add an HDMI port to your system, something like a low profile NVIDIA GT710 or GT1030 would work just fine.  If you're trying to do an upgrade for gaming, those cards aren't really designed with gaming in mind and you'd want to look for something like a GTX 1650, but the power supply in that Dell system may not support a card like that.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook atlfan ✭ June 2020 Thanks for the reply, defiantly not for gaming, something for normal use.

The USB-C docking stations won't be usable if your laptop doesn't have a USB-C port.  For monitors, again provided you have the right port, any of them will work. Just make sure the monitor has the right cable/port to match up with the docking station.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Gerri ✭ June 2020 I would like to know if you have the Logitech G29 in stock for pick up tomorrow? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook marcia1 ✭ June 2020 I am buying these for 2 different folks that I work with and am not able to check with their laptops look like. when I bot my docking station and monitors, someone just found what I needed and away we went.

I have a Logitech docking station which is universal, I need a monitor - $129.00 or so and any cords that may be needed to go along with those items. can you point me in the right direction? In that case, I'd go with a standard USB docking station. something like one of these:  https://www.microcenter.com/product/502135/j5create-usb30-mini-dock https://www.microcenter.com/product/431489/iogear-usb-30-universal-docking-station As for the monitor, this Dell fits your price range and comes with an HDMI cable in the box, so you wouldn't need to purchase an extra cable for it. Dell is known for making good monitors so this is probably the one I'd go with:  https://www.microcenter.com/product/611226/dell-se2417hgx-236-full-hd-75hz-hdmi-vga-freesync-led-monitor Gerri said: I would like to know if you have the Logitech G29 in stock for pick up tomorrow? Hi there! On the product page there you can actually see the current availability of the item, right under the name of the product where it lists "5 in stock at Brooklyn store." That reflects what we have available in the store, and our online stock listings are usually very accurate. If you'd like, you can always place a reservation request on an item by adding it to your cart and selecting the "reserve now" option and we'll have somebody in the store go to locate the item and put it off to the side for you.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook marcia1 ✭ June 2020 ok the docking station looks good as does the monitor. I have 2 folks who need these items and they had hoped to be able to pick them up at the store in Fairfax va. how do I accomplish that and what will they need for the pickup?  seems like I was advised to buy an additional cord -usb cord for that? thanks. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin June 2020 It looks like the Fairfax store is out of the monitor as well as the J5create docking station right now. An additional USB cord would not be required for the docking station, it comes with USB plug to attach to a computer.  I'd suggest this monitor as an alternative: https://www.microcenter.com/product/483999/asus-vp247qg-236-full-hd-75hz-vga-hdmi-dp-freesync-led-monitor  As for the pickup, you can add items to your cart and place a reservation request to have them put off to the side for you, just keep in mind that whoever picks it up has to provide their own form of payment at the time of pickup. When the reservation is confirmed a confirmation email with a reservation number would be sent, whoever picks it up would need to reservation number/order information when they come in.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 814 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

I have tentatively selected the Gigabyte Z490 AORUS PRO AX Intel LGA 1200 ATX. I'm looking for rock solid longevity. My last build was a Disignaire and it has worked well. I saw some mixed results and am second guessing myself. I mostly don't game but do some graphics manipulation/video. I have to support this to my wife, and it can't be unstable in any way. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSTDavey admin March 3 Hello @gkiteguy and thanks for posting on the Microcenter Community Forum. Just sharing some thoughts first based on my experience. What I have seen is that there is always a risk with custom built systems not having good longevity in general, no matter the board or cpu. Just because all the PC components to build a system are manufactured by different manufacture's to work and be compatible with each other, but they're still produced and designed by different companies. Pre-built systems like a Dell or HP use components that are Dell/HP approved for their systems. They're not using a collection of different component manufacturer's for their systems. A pre-built has a higher probability of lasting longer than a custom system; even though pre-built pc's can have issues too. Just sharing my experiences. I'd go with a pre-built system for video editing if the longevity of the PC staying up and running over a long term, is a concern, over building a system. Just my opinion based of my experiences. As far as the Gigabyte z490, its a good board. Look at the Asus Maximus XII Hero. There's are more reliability reviews out there for the Maximus board than the Z490. The Z490 may be a better board, but check out some of the reliability reviews on the Maximus. Decide then if want to go with the Z490 or trying out the Maximus board. 1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 6.7K All Categories 1K The Blog 33 What's Trending 164 How to & Technical Guides 10 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 15 3D Printers 9 Maker 15 PC Build Guides 81 Reviews & Buying Guides 27 Build Showcase 13 Contests 35 Past Contests 814 The Community 1.7K General Discussion 105 New Members 85 Consumer Tech 26 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 75 Software 2 Audio/Visual 12 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 2 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 21 Hobby Boards & Projects 23 3D Printing 49 Retro Arcade/Gaming 79 All Other Tech 1.2K Store Information and Policy 49 Off Topic 5 Community Ideas & Feedback 111 Your Completed Builds 2.6K Build-Your-Own PC 1.7K Help Choosing Parts 220 Graphics Cards 161 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 61 Cases and Power Supplies 19 Air and Liquid Cooling 13 Monitors and Displays 28 Peripherals 9 All Other Parts 21 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?
