orbit20 was Re: [TechTalk] intro and buying new computer

Josh Kennedy <joshknnd1982@...>

yes I'm only on SSI and saving for me is difficult. In any case I'm glad blair technology group said they will fix the laptop for free or replace it due to the warranty. Then I can save up for the next two months to buy the orbit reader20 $499 braille display when it comes out. Does anyone on here plan to buy the orbit20? I am a beta/prototype tester and I have to say I am very impressed with the prototype orbit20 I am testing out.

If I got to settle for junk I would rather save. It makes it so I
don't have to purchase something new so soon.

If you have to buy a new computer I would suggest you get one with a
faster processor at least 3GHz and at least 500GB hard drive and 8 MB RAM.

my only concern is with storeage on the stream. 4gigs of ram is enough
for what I do. the only real reason I'd need 8gigs ram is if I did tons of
audio editing or ran memory hungry virtual machines, which I don't do. I'm
just wondering if I could somehow save my favorite audio games, and jaws for
windows microsoft office, NVDA and a few other apps would they all fit on
the 32gigs of space? I guess I could make sure windows10 is compacted with
the command line

compact /compactos:always

running it in an admin command line will compact the OS and compress it
as small as possible. Blair gave me a free shipping label so they said I can
send it back and they will repair the laptop or replace it since its under
the 1 year warranty. if only windows10 would let me change the default write
disk to the sd card and migrate the entire users folder and all subfolders
and also the program files folders and program data folders over to the
micro sd card then storeage on the hp stream latest model with 4gigs ram
would not be an issue.

My pick would be the Stream for sure... SSD over standard HD any day.

I am new to the list. I recently bought a computer from blair
group. when it came in the mail and i tried setting it up with
home this laptop was a special order with a 120gb solid state
anyway narrator would not come on. i plugged in a external
finnished setting it up and got it onto the desktop. through
experimenting i found the laptop's built-in keyboard has some keys
do not work. so i called and asked for a return shipping label to
it back and have it repaired. they are sending me one in the mail.
my question sis this. if for some reason they cannot repair it and
return my $220 I am then planning to get a new computer. my two
are these.
1. for $199, hp stream 11.6 inch screen windows10 home and latest
laptop with AMD e2 processor, 4gigs ram and 32gb EMMC storeage with
micro sd card slot. main issue is windows10 does not let you yet,
the sd card as permanent storeage to store apps and all user data
including your %appdata% folder on the sd card. in other words you
cannot yet set the sd card as the default write disk for everything
you can with some android devices like with my blu energy x phone.
or my second choice
2. for $289, hp f222wm 15 inch touch screen windows10 home latest
with pentium n quad core, 500gb traditional spinning hard drive
4gigs ram.
but I hope blair technology group can repair or replace the computer
give me a good refurbished working one. what do you all think?
