That's easy on any computer just go to the 'User CP' and look for 'Settings and Options', you'll see 'Edit Avatar' and you can change it there, easy peasy.

That didn't work for me using the Classic Yellow skin.
I had to go to one of the Bad & Ugly skins to make it work.

No,
you just need to understand that "Profile picture" is NOT the "Avatar picture"


your PM told me to make sure your Profile picture was changed, and I looked, and the Indian pix was already uploaded to "Profile".


now you say, 'Avatar', so I changed the Avatar for you.


is it now what you want?

I get teased periodically about my laptop.

I've been a technology professional for 30+ years, and I could probably afford a new laptop if I thought it was a priority, but I still use an old Lenovo W510 that came with Windows 7 on it. I just keep upgrading the internals and it's still plenty fast. But, it weighs a ton, it's a big 16"-ish display, and it's thicker than a Big Mac. And the battery only lasts about an hour and a half.

All the kids with their Macs, sitting on their couches in the communal areas and sipping Starbucks think it's a dinosaur, and me by association.

It should be an awesome machine John - I have been extremely satisfied with mine and bought it primarily for video editing which it does very well with... I use Video Studio Pro X8 and have run it both on the SSD drive and the regular hard drive without issue...

I would buy another machine in a heartbeat and love my ASUS machines...

I used to have an old military laptop that cost megabucks for the military.
Two inches thick, nearly 20 years old now, but the cpu is fast, just as fast as current low end laptops being sold today.


it was limited to 2gB RAM, a shame, and it had Windows ?? something one it, XP ??


I gave it to Trike Lady, she can tell you about it.


Is Tuesday here yet? I want my new playtoy

when it arrives, it will be full day.


Fresh Install of Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon alongside Win10 (so I can run TurboTax)


Then run Aptik gtk which will clone the OS to my current apps and preferences.... nice


Then, copy over all of my /home folders

That was a General Dynamic Itronix GoBookIII, new they were expensive and heavy, it even came with a heated hard drive caddy for those stationed in very cold places, a nicely lighted keyboard and it ran Windows XP. They were waterproof, shockproof and even had a touch screen.
Then we traded and I got in its place an 17" Apple G4 PowerBook in aluminum. In the picture in post #5 its the one that is all by itself on the right.

John, I can appreciate "New Laptop Heaven"!

I just got a new "Toy" from the Company, they upgraded my 5 yr old Dell E6410 laptop to a Dell Precision 7730 "Engineering Laptop". This thing is a monster, 17.5" 1080p screen, Lighted keyboard with number pad, Core i7 2.6 GHz processor (6 cores, 12 threads) 32GB RAM(!!), 500GB m2 SSD, ethernet, Mini DisplayPort, 4x USB-3 and 2x USB-C jacks. Docking adapter connects via USB-C, has ethernet, 4 USB-3 ports, 2 USB-2 ports, Audio in/out, HDMI, Mini DisplayPort, VGA... I can run three monitors on this thing in addition to it's own 17.5" Screen.

Of course, it has the Corporate Windoze 10 image on it, and being a work machine I won't be putting any Linux in it. But what a pleasure to use! TOY!

I bet your new machine just screams when you boot the Linux image! Prolly do very well on the Windoze, too.

Wow!
they are being nice to you, just looked to see if Sandy Claus could afford that, nope:


Buy used: $4,999.77


We had to put a Fan Stand under the Dell laptop that I used to have,
does that one run warm enough to warrant that?
