This video will talk about the Windows 8.1 and 10 links on the 123myIT website, why Microsoft has removed them and some info on Windows 10 release.
So its been a pretty exciting week on the Microsoft front, with the Windows 10 Release. On Wednesday 29th of July, Microsoft started preparing for the full version of Windows 10 to be released.
And I have had to scramble to remove the old Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 preview version links for the Downloads section of the 123myIT.com website. Which thanks to Microsoft no longer work.
To all those 123myIT subscribers out there that were lucky to get the preview copy. Maybe make a back up of it to USB so that you always have that copy in the future. Link below for video on how to do that. How to create a bootable Windows 8.1 USB
Its the same process for Windows 10 Release as well.
For those that did miss out on the preview versions there is other options for you.
The first option and probably easiest way to get your hands on Windows is to buy and you can buy it through the links in the 123myIT.com Store. Once you have your product key, you can use the Media Creation Tools to download Windows as an ISO file or directly to a USB key.
Download the Media Creation Tools from the Downloads part of the 123myIT.com website.
Create installation media for Windows 8.1 link here. Create Media
Windows 10 Media Creator Tool 32 bit link here. Create Media Tool 32 Bit
Windows 10 Media Creator Tool 64 bit link here. Create Media Tool 64 Bit
The picture below shows you what you can expect from the Media Creation Tools.
The second option is to upgrade the versions that you already have, so if you have a Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 computer you can simply upgrade that computer. And I go into more detail about that in this video. Windows 10 FREE Upgrade
So if you have an older computer boot it up and make sure you are getting your Free Windows upgrade. Windows 10 Release seems to have gone pretty smoothly so far some people seem to be having issues getting drivers to work. But that will come along once manufactures have time to create suitable drivers.
This video will show you the Asus G751JT-CH71 Unboxing & Benchmark.
I am pretty excited as I sit down to write out this 123myIT update. The video above was the first video I have recorded in 4K resolution. It marks a new era for 123myIT and a higher video quality for 123myIT users.
Now that that’s over with, let start talking about the Asus G751JT-CH71 Unboxing. I have been a fanboy of the Asus Republic of Gamers laptops for the past 4 years. As much as I hate to say the word, its probably true.
Why do I upgrade to a new laptop every year I here you ask? Well I use the laptop for gaming and for work on the 123myIT.com website. So I like to keep the technology up to date. So after one year I buy the newest laptop and I sell the old one on websites like Gumtree.com. This allows me to keep up to date with the latest hardware without costing an arm or leg. I also never buy the very top of the line hardware as I don’t see it as value for money. And while you might think this laptop is the top of the range, its actually not and I will explain why. This model comes with the Geforce GTX 970m and not the Geforce GTX 980m which is the faster GPU. This model also doesn’t include the faster SSD drive rather it has the slower 1TB 7200 RPM Sata drive. Which I will actually do a video on how to upgrade hard drive later. So as you can see, I have gone purely for bang for my buck type of laptop.
What I like about the Asus laptops is that they are powerful with nice design don’t have ugly flashing lights on them, they run at a cool temperature due to the massive big fan cooling system on the back of the laptops.
So on first look at the latest Asus G751JT-CH71 model, the first things I noticed is that the grills at the back of the laptop have been panted red. I am not sure If I like this colour change I see it a kind of “try hard”. But maybe that’s just my taste and others will probably disagree with me.
The next thing you will notice is the keyboard has changed from white background keys to red, and the keyboard now includes a few extra keys such as the ROG key, Shadow Play, Stream and Macro keys. Also the WASD keys have been highlighted with a awesome red colour which make hem stand out. The only draw back here I seem to press Shadow Play key by mistake rather then the Escape key which I find very annoying as it boot me out of any game I might be playing and back to the desktop.
The other upgrades are the newer 17.3″ 16:9 IPS FHD (1920×1080) anti-glare display which makes the colours look deeper as well as a CPU upgrade.
Asus has tied it all together very nicely with a well designed chassis.
While this laptop wont be for everyone, if you are looking for a desktop replacement gaming laptop then you should definitely take a look at the Asus G751JT-CH71.
