With all this computer talk on the forums I frequent, I decided to finally update what I'm working with. I have been running the same desk top unit for at least 15 years, I know, I'm living in the stone age. What really has driven the update is the need for video editing speed. It was time. It was past time.
I purchased a Dell G3 gaming laptop, and I'll reuse my monitor, wireless keyboard and mouse. Here are the specs.
9th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-9750H
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1650 4GB GDDR5
16GB, 2x8GB, DDR4, 2666MHz
256GB M.2 PCIe NVMe Solid State Drive (Boot) + 1TB 5400 rpm 2.5" SATA Hard Drive (Storage)
I also added a WD Elements 3TB Portable External Hard Drive along with an Anker USB C Hub 4 port.
I must say the video editing takes less time and the upload process is much faster. The editing software hasn't crashed and I can actually run the latest version I paid for now that my system can handle it. I know this will sound crazy but I miss my old Windows version.
With the social distancing and shelter in place warnings, I am giving some thought to purchasing the latest and greatest Flight Sim. I have no clue where my yoke and rudder pedals are, maybe stored in a box in the hangar. If it stops raining I'll head over to the hangar and look for the controls.
Any recommendations on Flight Sim software??
