Creating Recovery Drives by Boris[_7_]
I have an Inspiron 5559 laptop, that I got in June 2017, shipped with Windows 10 Home Premium (1709 at the time?). I used the on board "Create a recovery drive" program then to make a USB recovery drive. All went fine. About a year and a half later, as I'm organizing all my USB drives, I...

The minimal HD memory Latitude 3180 at the outlet store is pretty cheap ($250, less on coupon days) and offers win10 pro. I got one to be able to play modern youtube videos, which XP can't deal with. Use Edge to download Firefox and you're good to go. Turn off all the awful win10 malware...

Scratch'n'dent by Ron Hardin
I've been buying Factory Outlet Dells for a while. I notice I have much better luck with scratch'n'dent laptops than refurbished ones (though they eventually get fixed owing to keeping sending them back until it happens, but it's a hassle.). Refurbished ones tend to have the original problem,...
