Re: The 2020 Operating System Thread

Re: best cheap/free scores 1.1

I haven't had good luck with anything HP of that era. There's a reason all of my HP laptops are parted out. Seems that they didn't transition to ROHS very well... so many BGA issues.

You do know that years ago (10 years or more), we at BCN found out that Taicon was behind the Nichion HM/HN fiasco of the early 2000's. They are garbage.
