Okay Now I'm Annoyed Edition
Top Story
  • I haven't had time to even look at my twin HP Spectres recently. Just did. I shouldn't have.

    Both of them have suffered severe battery bloat and are now little more than e-waste. And I've hardly had the time to use them.

    I do have a new notebook arriving any day, but it would have been nice to still have the old notebooks. I don't know why these suffered from battery bloat in particular; my old Dell has been running for years and while its battery is wearing out it still works fine.

  • Minisforum has announced a couple of NUCs. (AnandTech)

    There's an Intel model which is maybe interesting for some specific tasks, and a rather nice AMD model. Ryzen 9 5900HZ, up to 64GB RAM, one M.2 and two 2.5" drives, 2.5Gb Ethernet, two DisplayPort and two HDMI outputs. It's 7.5x7" so rather larger than a typical NUC, but a typical NUC fits at most one 2.5" drive.

    On the other hand, it has a 120W power supply, which seems like a lot.
