  1. Move Desktop to Laptop

    Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 530 desktop with a 500MB hard drive. I have installed W10 and my Office 2007 license (from years ago) was worth it and I continue using it without any problem. I need to change that machine for a laptop, more than anything to be able to move with it. I was thinking of buying an SSD, cloning the 500 HD in the desktop and installing the cloned SSD in the second-hand laptop that I'll buy. I can do this?.
    Then I format the 500MB HD of the desktop and try to sell or I donate it to the library in my neighborhood. I can do this?. Thanks for your time.

    Move Desktop to Laptop

    Laptop or Desktop for Music production?

    My brother's BIL is into music composition and audition etc. He is looking to buy a new system (or build one). He was asking me if a Laptop will suffice for recording his compositions with good quality audio and video. He was looking to buy a i5 or i7 based Quad core + dedicated graphics powered laptop (with 8GB ram + 500GB Hdd). I suggested to build a Desktop powered with i5/i7 + dedicated grarphics and buy a real good $100 sound card and good headset. May be go little cheaper and build a AMD Quad/Hex based desktop.

    Is a Laptop good enough or desktop is better?

    If laptop suggest me few good ones. Looking for a mid-range priced ones (about $800).
