+2. We used kodi for years but it took a helluva lot of tinkering to keep it running. Plex tends to just work. It's got a Wife Friendly UI and that counts for a lot.

excellent, thank you!

DiscoBotty

does it enable accounts you give access to (like my mrs) to do things like download films to their devices, or is that still limited to the main account holder (me)?

I've been a lifetime plex subscriber for years and it has been a very worthwhile investment for me, as you get the full version of the app on any device included, and when used with a Nvidia Shield 2019, you get Dolby Vision playback and the ability to just about play anything. But development has drifted in recent years, with Plex Arcade (additional subscription when it should have been free for plex subscribers and now dead), Plex Free TV (not great, and just confuses everything), connects to other streaming services such as Amazon (badly integrated and again confusing, and just opens the Amazon app). I do hope they return to the core parts of the Plex Media Server and introduce x265 encoding, updated metadata support for Dolby Atmos & Vision, improved TV tuner support.

Opening the body up to add more RAM seems a PITA from the video. Spudging all round, apparently twice, presumably taking care to avoid all the tiny clips, some of which will break.

I just checked, the HP has four cores compared to 6 cores in this. Otherwise they're very similar.

sisqoboy

Yeah, that is a great value as well. We would need to compare the TDP for the GPUs in these laptops. About the CPUs I don't think there would be a huge difference between the two.

Namrofni10

Isn't this a better when factor in price? hotukdeals.com/share-deal/3930632 Specs look similar? Does anyone know how the cpu's compare?

A tenner more gets you an ASUS with the N4xxx series CPU (i.e. Win11 supported) albeit with a slightly smaller screen - also available from Argos (I posted this a few days ago). Still no powerhouse but at least a reputable name.

BeadlesHand

Don't .....just don't.

supermann

The CPU is a bit old but it's not that far of the 4000 series.. For what this needs to be used for it will be fine however, geobooks are generally terrible build wise, the hinge will be a major failure point. Even keeping the thing open half the time won't prevent the hinge from failing within a year or so. I actually think though this is poor value even putting that aside. The screen looks like it may be a TN panel, and low res..the only redeeming factor is 64GB storage which will solve the windows problem but you can a similar refurbished one from XSonly for £67.99 delivered. Maybe okay considering its new but still it's a geobook...

It’s cheap but the combo of eMMC (effectively runs off an SD card) and the basic dual core Celeron, means this will grind to a halt when any sort of updates are needed. Expect it to be unusable for the first couple of days and the same whenever Windows is updating anything. I have a quad core Celeron TV box with an SSD and 8gb ram (only cost £150) and it’s ‘fine’ for basic use, which suggests to me that this won’t be.

Hmm, time to upgrade from my ancient and buggy version of Acronis True Image Pro!

AndyRoyd

Business/technician-biased solution Acronis True Image is provided by Acronis as an unrestricted Windows boot disk ISO download. Been this way since prior to intro of alternative product: Cyber Protect. TI 2021 build 39287 is available as a freebie 690MB ISO download at: http://dl.acronis.com/s/AcronisTrueImage2021_39287.iso and where the last five numerical characters stipulate the build number, so can be amended for future build downloads.

Excellent backup tool. I've been using it personally and professionally and it hasn't let me down in the various emergencies I had.

merlin6r

Just off the top of my head: You can back up folders with very fine control over file types. You get macrium guardian that protects the images from being altered by viruses, ransomware etc. You can make incremental backups. Not just full and differential. I have the full version and I think it's worth every penny.

I don't take orders. Why don't you create the deal instead of bossing people around?

froggitt

So create the HD deal and watch it go red because people don't want to create an account on Amazon France.

RedXI

Yes, here:

froggitt

But are there better deals available today?

RedXI

No, it gets voted cold because people are aware that there have been better deals very recently. At least that's why I voted cold.
