I am at this very moment waiting for UPS to deliver a new HP PC. Definitely low-end - Ryzen 3 1200 with Radeon RX550 - but a step up from the Core i3 with integrated 515 graphics I'm using now. Almost afraid to connect it to the interwebs when I set it up.
I must say, however, that I didn't experience any issues with the October update on my Lenovo.
I didn't experience any problems, knock on wood, but the new, huge (and unresizable) Favorites panel in Edge so annoyed me that I switched to Opera. Couldn't be happier (even though Favorites are even more cumbersome). Funny thing is that I had finally started using Edge for everything, instead of IE11.
Must be nice to work in a place like that. While every place has its share of shirkers and slackers, the hotels I've worked all seem to have a policy of 'if it takes 4 people to do the work, only hire three' and, between call-outs (pretty common with the youngsters) and/or high turnover (due to the high workload), you frequently have to make do with 2.
"Is it just me being old, that I feel that streaming video just for the audio is a waste of perfectly good bandwidth?"
YouTube is a god-send for classical music lovers and well worth the waste of a little bandwidth. From live performance to recorded music from both the labels themselves and user-uploaded, we're given the opportunity to hear things we'd likely never otherwise have. Our favorite chestnuts by household names to the once-famous who've fallen out of favor to composers I've never heard of, it's truly an embarrassment of riches, like dying and going to heaven.
