Re: New computer selection help??

I must be real lucky, or simply not taxing my computing products very hard.

I have Droid and Galaxy phones and have never had software or instability problems with them. My old Galaxy 4 still...

Re: New computer selection help??

For what it's worth, I buy the Acer sub $300 laptops by the bushel for my college age kids and they are a bit slow but very capable and come with a solid state hard drive and long battery life. Damn...

Re: New computer selection help??

I'd second the chrome book. Or go apple (I like the air, or an iPad air with a lifeproof case and a Bluetooth keyboard). Windows just way too buggy for me. I really hate rebooting.
Lifeproof makes a...

Re: New computer selection help??

Lenono [sic] and HP both come to mind. I refuse to have anything to do with Dell because they've dropped so many balls over the years. Both of the first two make "more rugged" lines under different...

Re: New computer selection help??

Laptops are pretty much appliances anymore. All brands are pretty much the same stuff, and it is not good, with the exception of apple. They are all pretty much junk, but on the flip side they are...

Re: New computer selection help??

I like the old Panasonic "Toughbook" computers for the boat..

water resistant, shock resistant and cheap enough to replace if they glitch out.

Re: Lets Talk Radar Mounts.

Looks like this is the way to go. Great idea of adding a hoist mount also, we need one. I do have access to scrap aluminum and a good fab shop. Time to go take some measurements.

Re: Third / starting battery?

Depends on how you have them connected. With three identical (same model and same date of manufacture), you could wire all three in parallel with no selector. This could prolong their life by...
