Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

Correct. Mint 20.3 worked nice......but more if it were being used as laptop. The rotation sensors did not work. Touchscreen worked, but not as one would want/expect.

Re: Dummy loads for amplifier fault finding

They pop up now & then. A complete one with all the leads goes for an easy $1500USD. I'm not seeing one on right now, maybe the one you're seeing is a CA seller that won't ship to the US? All I...
