For Sale – hp envy 17-r107na laptop

I’m selling this beast of a laptop. Have finally seen the sense and purchased something smaller.

Laptop is in good working order but has taken a bit of a beating on the lid, see photos.

When I purchased this laptop, I extended the warranty to 3 years, 1 year and 2 months is still left on this. It should be transferable to the new owner as the warranty is electronically tracked by the laptop itself (again see very poor photo)

Specs are:

  • Intel Core i7 (6th Gen) 6700HQ / 2.6 GHz Max Turbo Speed 3.5 GHz Quad Core Processor
  • 16GB RAM, 512GB SSD
  • 17.3″ Full HD Display (1920 x 1080) Resolution
  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M 4GB Dedicated Graphics
  • Windows 10 Home 64-bit

Any questions let me know.

For Sale – Macbook Pro Retina 13, 2015, i5, 8GB, 128GB

I’m possibly looking to switch to a Surface Pro for work, but just weighing up boot camp versus a Windows 10 device.

I can post full pictures once I’m home tonight.

It’s the 2015 model, Core i5, 8GB RAM and 128GB SSD. It’s running High Sierra and had 72 battery cycles (around 97% of full design capacity on last check).

It’s all boxed, in excellent condition. It was bought from John Lewis as a Xmas present in 2015, I’m not sure on warranty status.

Possibly open for trades (either Surface Pro or Surface Book), but really just testing the water.

Price and currency: 750
Delivery: Delivery cost is included within my country
Payment method: BT or Paypal
Location: Swindon

Prefer goods collected?: I have no preference

Enabling economic opportunity for Washington’s students – Microsoft on the Issues

As we close the year, I’m delighted to share some encouraging momentum from the Washington State Opportunity Scholarship (WSOS), a unique public-private partnership that helps low- and middle-income students earn their bachelor’s degrees in the state’s high-demand science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and health care fields. Based on their annual report to the legislature released this month, we’re seeing emerging evidence of the program’s long-term success.

In the last six years, more than 8,400 unique scholars have received financial and programmatic support from the program. Of the most recently awarded class of scholars, 72 percent are first-generation college students, 73 percent are students of color, and 60 percent of new scholars are female.

The impact on our region is far-reaching. Year-over-year growth means increasing steps forward in a tech-fueled workforce economy that reflects the diversity of our state. But beyond the numbers, the impact is a deeply personal one for the thousands of WSOS scholarship recipients. One scholar, Malachi, explains the benefits in his own words in this short video:

Local hiring managers are also waiting to recruit WSOS graduates, with more than nine out of 10 recent graduates finding employment within nine months of graduation. In all, 88 percent of WSOS graduates employed in their field of study remained in Washington state, which is critically important as we look to increase and diversify the pipeline of talent in the region.

A recent TechAlliance study shows that at current rates, our state’s colleges and universities will only be able to supply 27 percent of skilled STEM workers needed around the state by 2025. Simply put, our local talent pool must expand to keep up with our fast-growing digital economy. This is why we need more programs and partnerships like WSOS.

At the same time, our state continues to grapple with reliable, high-quality education solutions for all students, including those from low- and middle-income backgrounds. Without proven and consistent onramps to STEM training, we risk leaving behind bright, capable scholars who are surrounded by home-grown innovation, but lack the opportunity to be a part of that success.

What makes WSOS unique is the way it was founded: driven by visionary government leadership out of Olympia, combined with a commitment from local companies, including Microsoft, and private contributions to provide financial support. Under the program, the state matches private donations dollar-for-dollar. This force multiplier effect means that by the end of the 2017-2018 school year, students will have received more than $50 million in scholarships.

Recently, the WSOS board voted to extend the program and its commitment to students with a goal of funding 16,000 scholars by 2025. The program extension also includes a new commitment to double-down on support services for scholars, including expansion of WSOS program officers, industry mentorship and a new peer-mentorship program that helps younger students learn in a small group setting.

As a founding partner of WSOS, Microsoft is a big believer in the power of collaborative support. We’ve invested $35 million to WSOS to date, and we feel that it’s worth highlighting significant benchmarks from a partnership operating at a scale that is unusual across the country. It’s a great example of how smart policy and a willingness to invest in innovation can produce tangible results, and we feel that the WSOS model could be a great fit potentially in other states as well.

We believe it’s up to all of us to craft forward-looking partnerships so that we can meaningfully begin to address shared community challenges. By joining forces, we can help our next generation of students connect to the education and career opportunities they deserve.

Wanted – PCI e graphics card with hdmi (cheap as possible)

Hi, I’m doing a low cost build for a family member and need to add in a graphics card with a hdmi output as the motherboard only has vga.

Anything will do as long as it works, isn’t noisy and doesn’t require a separate power connection.

Let me know what you and how much please.
