Wow. So you guy understand why this post is happening. After about 10 years of service my Toshiba laptop finally failed at the monitor hinges. I can no longer close the screen and pack my laptop on the road. I've been in the process of research and purchasing a new laptop. It like WOW all the new stuff out there. Like SSD drives are now apart of the laptop scene as a M.2 board now. Basically a smaller card plugged in a socket.

So while I was hunting for a new laptop I was finding many laptops already have a 256 GB M.2 SSD drive already installed and upgradeable to 512 GB. Being I'm an Ubuntu Linux fan this becomes a huge bonus. I can split out the OS system to the SSD drive since its mostly read operation which reduces the write cycles on the SSD drive giving it a longer lifespan. Then place all my "home" folder on the mechanical 1 TB drive. 

 

Then finding out USB took another huge jump for performance. USB 3.1. Like OMG! Most laptops were already set up for both sockets of the Type C USB 3.1. This rang a bell in my head being I'll no longer require two radios (Cell and WiFi) on my cell phone to work in the field. I could now use a USB tether and no have any loss also reduce the battery usage on both the laptop and the cellphone. Being both my cell phone (Android) and laptop (Ubuntu Linux) are Linux this is another huge bonus.

Then I notice most of the thin and light laptops stripped the CD-ROM out. In my world I've got little need for a CD-ROM or DVD player any longer. Most all software is from the Linux Distro network. The only time I use a CD-ROM is possibly backup data which I could just pump back to the main computer and burn on a DVD or use a flash drive. Which was another piece I did order as well was 256 GB USB 3.1 flash drive for that purpose. This will also be used to install my Ubuntu Linux to the new PC. Nope I'm not going to run Windows 10 (Yuk!)

 

Really is amazing how far technology has come. I started reviewing desktop PC parts and looking at what I've got and what is available. Surprising my old tower standing beside me does a fair job yet for web surfing. I'm really anxious to see the new laptop show up on Tuesday.  It might come down to upgrading the tower next being its an Asus A78M-A motherboard with a AMD A8 processor (released in 2012).

 

This what is going to replace the old Toshiba.

It here and I'm posting on the website with Ubuntu 18.04 LTS on the new laptop. I didn't even fire up the Windows 10. It was deleted and set up just the way I said. I loaded the Ubuntu (root) on the SSD drive and my personal data on the (home). This thing is smoking fast. Being there is no CD-ROM I installed Linux off a 256 GB thumb drive. It took a few passes to figure out I needed an EFI partition and then build the root partition. After that it was installed in about 10 minutes. I was now loading my software and updates. Took me a total of one hour to get it up and running. This ASUS is super thin and super light. No CD-ROM, NO network jack. No biggy...

Happy for you. But for me that post might as well be in Latin.

 

:lol2:

 

What can I say I've sent my $50,000 back in the 80's to go to ITT Tech of Van Nuys, CA. Computers and electronics no problem. 

 

I finally got the battery charged up last night and moved to my bedroom. The WiFi is a bit stronger and does really well with weak signals where my old Toshiba would drop it quite a bit. I sure love the light keyboard. That sweet I can dimly light the keyboard and dim the screen back and it shows about 4.5 to 5 hours of battery. I tested out the USB tether for the cellphone it going work out awesome. No longer need to use a WiFI radio on both the cellphone and laptop it will be USB cable ran and faster both the cell phone battery and my laptop battery will last longer being the cellphone is on the USB they share the power now. Not having a CD-ROM that nice too. I can very easily live off a USB thumb drive which is even quicker than a CD-ROM or DVD. If I need to back up something I can transfer to that 256 GB USB thumb drive and load it up on the big machine to burn. The case of the laptop is aluminum, not plastic. All the ports for devices are on the left and right sides. The hinge side is the vent for the fans so with the screen open the hinge directs the heat upwards not downwards. I'm really excited to try the WiFi at the coffee shop in a large city and see what kind of speeds I can get. My network at home is old as well I've got a b/g/n WiFi so the laptop gladly hops on and works up to about 4 to 6 Mbits per second transferring files. If I upgraded my WiFi router to something that handles 1 Gbit cable I'd be set. All my desktop machine have 1 Gbit connections.

 

After last night I was glad I've never fired up the Windows 10 and nuked it before anything. Go through all the preloaded bloatware, driver issues, etc. Ubuntu 18.04 LTS loaded up just fine. No problems, no error or bugs to report. The only one like I said before was me being dumb and not understanding the UEFI boot setup. "Stupid Windows!" so make Ubuntu work you have to create a small 50 MB partition so Ubuntu can make the same secure boot lock. Lame but oh well. After getting all fired up and the Ubuntu up to date. I start stuff my common programs like my password book (KeepassX) and FileZilla. The first place I went after unlocking the WiFi password (64 characters long) hop on the website. Being I'm using Google Chrome all my bookmarks and saved stuff was imported back into my browser in a mere few seconds. Looked just like my desktop machine ready for work.

 

The only thing I found so far that I found that was unusual was I figure I'd fire up the lm-sensors and calibrate the temp sensors and see what hardware monitor data I had. When I ask the first time it was all in centigrade temperatures but the one that stuck out was the nVidia card at 451*C. So I called the sensors again specified the -f  switch and 843*F... Ah no, I doubt the video chip is that hot. :lmao: I think the detect program ported to something data-wise it wasn't supposed to. The rest of the temperatures for the process and hard drive were all reasonable. 

 

  • No driver has been installed.
  • No antivirus installed.
  • No malware software installed. 
  • No activation of Windows junk.
  • No bloatware to deal with.

 

  • Already have Libre Office (just like MS Office)

Another thing found. I found out this machine allows VirtualBox to function normally. Previously my Toshiba won't allow the virtual machine to be ran because the BIOS chip was locked to disallow such task. Kwel this means I'll have a VirtualBox that I can load Windows on and load up some things like Garmin update software and other things that require windows but I can run an older series of Windows and not have the monstrous bloat of Windows 10.

 

Next down the road is loading up Steam and toss a game at this beast and see how the video stacks up.

 

I've already done Hulu and plays really well smooth frame rate and audio is very rich for a laptop with speakers facing downwards toward the desktop.
