Re: What kind of computer are you using?

I mainly use my Macbook Pro(2012)

2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor (Turbo Boost up to 3.3GHz) with 6MB L3 cache
4GB of 1600MHz DDR3 memory
500GB 5400-rpm hard drive
15.4-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen display
Intel HD Graphics 4000
NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 512MB of GDDR5 memory
Latest OSX High Sierra update installed

Although I need to double the RAM and replaced the HDD with a Solid State drive ASAP.

I also use a Samsung Galaxy TAB S2 10.1" Android Tablet.

Re: What kind of computer are you using?

I also have a black obelisk.

Behind the door on the front there is:

Core i7 6700 @ 3.4GHz
32GB RAM
MSi GTX1080
2x500GB SSD
Single display: Asus PG279Q

or

2014 Macbook Pro: 16GB, 500GB SSD, GT750M still running Yosemite since us folks using these things as mobile music workstations are generally scared of upgrading.

Re: What kind of computer are you using?

Personally I think we would be much better off without some computers (ie smart phones).

Have you looked to see how many scripts are running on the sites that you visit and what they're all doing? Mostly they are targetted advertising trackers but there are some really nasty ones out there.

I run a scriptblocker and only allow the ones that are absolutely necessary for a site to function and they're on a whitelist. These being mainly common Google API libraries and video helpers/cdns
