Hi Lifehacker, I’m going back to university to start a Masters and will be doing subjects that range from bioinformatics and accounting to marketing and law. So I need a laptop that is under $1000 (ideally under $500), reasonably light with a good battery life and can handle large projects. It also needs to be useful for at least two years. I have a history of breaking computers so I don’t want anything too delicate (and no Macs, we just don’t get on). Any suggestions?
A big weekend if you’re into tech deals! Dick Smith has cut up to 20% off Panasonic and Sony TVs, 10% off Apple MacBook Air computers and 15% off Asus, Toshiba and HP laptops over $500. Check out: The Asus Transformer Book Flip (save $200) and the 11.6-inch HP Pavilion x360 convertible notebook (pictured; save $100). Have at it!
Dear Lifehacker, I’m currently planning to build a desktop to use alongside my laptop. What I’d like to do is to “stream” all audio from my laptop to my desktop — not just music, but the whole system’s sounds, so everything that can be heard directly from the laptop can be heard from my desktop. How can I set that up? Most streaming applications I know only stream sounds or music opened inside of them.
