A laptop or notebook is a portable personal computer with a clamshell form factor, suitable for mobile use. Although originally there was a distinction between laptops and notebooks, the former being bigger and heavier than the latter, there is often no longer any difference. Laptops are commonly used in a variety of settings, such as at work, in education, and for personal multimedia. A laptop combines the components, inputs, outputs and capabilities of a desktop computer, including the display screen, speakers, a keyboard, and pointing devices (such as a touchpad or trackpad) into a single unit. The device can be powered either from a rechargeable battery or by mains electricity from an AC adapter.

I'm looking to buy a new laptop. I want it to be light and to use for .Net development. It needs to be light.

On my current laptop, I have:  VS 2013 and VS2015 (community), SQL 2014 and SQL 2016 (developer editions)

1. No Toshiba. I already have one and don't like it. It's not for development.  I got it maybe 4 yrs ago.

2. I have a gaming laptop. It's MSI but it's so heavy and running out of disk space when I installed SQL 2016.

3. At work, we have Dell laptops. Seems like a good laptop but screen is too small. At my previous job, my coworker had Surface but again, the screen was too small. I think 15 inch screen would be good.

4. I know I need SSD and i7 processor
Is this a good one? Any recommendations?

What kind of adapter is needed to connect two external monitors to a Lenovo Yoga 720-131kb laptop?

Is it possible to do this without having to purchase a port replicator? If so what kind of adapter is needed?

We're talking an ASUS net book (tablet  that can detach from small keyboard) Modal T100H Mobile Dock.

Somehow I have managed to turn on the number lock so that instead of a "j" I get a "4 or some such, and so on for the letter set that prints numbers when you set it to. Except that I did not do that intentionally.

There is NO number lock key on the keyboard.

In case you did not get that, let me repeat it....THERE IS NO NUMBER LOCK KEY ON THE KEYBOARD!

I say this only because I did some searches and found that as the answer.

So experts, what's the solution?

Micro pc vr laptop in a case where the difference in design does not make a difference [I understand that a micro is designed to be in a office and a laptop on the go, but in some cases this does not make a difference and there is no need for a monitor and keyboard] is there any pro on a micro pc over a laptop?
(In price thy seem to be about the same)

Is it safe to plug 90 watt power adapter directly into a Lenovo T440 laptop?

Or can this power adapter only be used and plugged into a port replicator?

Is there any real benefit in setting a BIOS password on laptops/desktops to prevent your staff messing around with boot sequence if the disc drive is full disc encrypted (bitlocker)?

I have seen numerous boot discs and USB which can exports/crack or even reset local windows password hashes, and booting from linux type distro's  for unencrypted systems bypasses windows login so you could access any sensitive local information. But I am not sure if there is any benefit in doing so if the drive is encrypted, as a boot CD/USB wont be able to pull hashes/sensitive files until the C drive has booted and the encryption key entered to make the data accessible?

Are there any remaining risks with not BIOS password if the drive is encrypted, or any benefits still in setting a BIOS password?

For years I've used a 2008r2 KMS server....I just added a 2nd 2012r2 as a KMS server....I'm running VAMT and added my VLS keys from our agreement.  My Windows 10 Pro and ENT laptops aren't 'seeing' the KMS server.  When I do a slmgr /ato is says there are no KMS servers available.  I created a DNS entry to the new KMS server manually, but still the clients can't activate.

I am unable to boot into the BIOS on a Lenovo T450 laptop.

The laptop has the fast boot option disabled.

On the laptop I press the Enter key when prompted and instead of taking me to the computer boot menu the laptop boots into Windows.

I have done this both during a complete shutdown and during Windows 10 reboots.

I have also tried using an external keyboard but am still unable to boot into the boot menu or boot into the BIOS.

What are some other ways of booting into the BIOS or choosing an alternate boot device such as a USB thumb drive?

im guessing the battery just needs to be replaced but want to make sure that i am not missing something.

its running windows 10. i changed the power setting from high performance to balanced, then fully charged it before taking it off the power adapter. ran for over 40mins and was at around 90% charge when i maxed the brightness and it nearly immediately died,

If someone has a small computer repair business they do on the side, how does Microsoft Licensing work? If someone has to reinstall Windows on many different clients' computers. Does that person need to buy a special license?

Three laptops are having issues when a second extra monitor (BenQ) is plugged in via HDMI. Testing similar monitors on the ProBook 450 G3 seems to work completely fine (models of laptops having issues listed below).

1.      HP ProBook 450 G2
2.      HP ProBook 450 G0
3.      HP ProBook 450 G0

Won't work with two BenQ monitors plugged in via VGA (GL2450-T) and HDMI (BL2405PT). The VGA monitor works, but the HDMI monitor will say "No cable connected" despite it appearing on the Screen Resolution menu as a "BenQ LCD".

We have updated the BIOS and GPU drivers with no luck. We have successfully plugged the BL2405PT monitor in via VGA and HDMI on its own, which have both worked. (Have yet to test the monitor on its own via HDMI ,to rule whether it's an issue plugging in via HDMI, or an issue with multiple monitors).

We're going on-site now, so will provide more details soon.

I have a Thinkpad t61 laptop and I am trying to locate the drivers for it. It looks like Lenovo remove the download from the website. I tried to search but I am not sure if I could trust the other websites. Thanks

My HP laptop is wonky. I turned it on and all I see is the wallpaper and in the middle of the screen is my name and an icon for a person (I never uploaded my pic).  I tried clicking ctl/alt/delete but nothing happens.  I tried restarting and it just spins and spins.

I rarely use this laptop but need it today because an online form that I need to fill out does not work with macs.  Any idea how to fix?

Hi

We have Exchange Online tenant and would like to know if we can stop users from connecting their own personal desktops and laptops to the corporate email using various versions of outlook (thick client)?
We can restrict users by EAS using rules.  We can block OWA fine.

i spoke to MS and they suggested intune.  But i cant find what im after to confirm wither way.

Also we use a 3rd party MDM tool for managing ios/android devices.  

Thanks

Hello all,

Usually, I do my own research before asking on EE but I've spent so much time looking for a specific type of compact P&S (https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/29038909/Best-compact-P-S-ultra-zoom-camera.html), I haven't had much time for this question. I promise to do some of my own research over the coming weekend and expeditiously finalize this EE question.  :)

In 2015, I purchased a wonderful ASUS Transformer 13.3" Laptop i5 8GB 500GB (Model: TP300LA-UB52T - the model with the Full HD IPS 1920 x 1080 screen). With Windows 10, it is a bit on the slow side but I'm still quite happy with it.

However, my current requirements require a smaller version of this laptop. Believe it or not but the 13.3" screen is just a bit too big for my portability requirements.

Ideally, I am looking for a smaller version of that ASUS laptop, one with a 10-11'' screen. I've done some cursory looking and mostly what I find in this screen size are Chromebooks and severely under powered Windows 10 laptops running on the Atom processor.

My must haves:
  • Screen size of less than 11.4" (apx but less is better).
  • Decent processor to support Windows 10 plus data writing at near full USB 3 speed.
  • USB 3 port (2 preferred).
  • RAM upgradable to at least 8GB.
  • Touch screen.
  • Built-in WiFi.
  • Under $1000 (ideally).

Nice to haves include, pen, better than 1080p screen, minimum of 8 hours battery life, Ethernet port, built in bluetooth.
