Dealmaster: Get an Acer laptop with a Core i7 and 1080p display for $459

Ars Technica - 9 min 46 sec ago

Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today the Dealmaster has scrounged up another decent-looking deal for those in need of a cheap laptop, as Acer's Aspire 5 notebook is down to $459 at Walmart.

This configuration comes with a 7th-gen Core i7-7500 processor, a 15.6-inch 1080p display, 8GB of RAM, and a 1TB hard drive. The familiar caveats with budget laptops still apply: it's meant for casual use more than gaming or graphics-intensive work, the build quality and display won't blow you away, and the keyboard isn't backlit. But last year's Core i7 isn't exactly a slouch for $459, and neither is a fully 1080p display. If you just can't pay for something better, you could do worse.

If your laptop situation is all set, there's also a smorgasbord of PC accessory deals going on at Amazon today, including the lowest price we've seen on the high-end AMD Threadripper 1950X CPU we praised last year. There are deals on wireless headphones, iPads, and Amazon's Fire HD 10 tablet beyond that. Check it all out for yourself below.

With new Windows update still AWOL, Fall Creators Update reaches 92% penetration

Ars Technica - 47 min 2 sec ago

We're still waiting for the next Windows 10 update, probably to be named the April 2018 Update, even though April is rapidly nearing its end. This means that the Fall Creators Update, Windows 10 version 1709, is still the latest update, and hence, it's still creeping upward in usage.

This month, according to the numbers collected by AdDuplex, the Fall Creators Update was found on 92.8 percent of Windows 10 installations, adding another two percent over last month. That makes it the most widely used update yet: the Anniversary Update (version 1607) peaked at 92.1 percent after eight months of availability.

The numbers also suggest that Windows Insiders may be a little more diverse than expected. Most months, the number of people on the next version of Windows is about 0.4 percent. But in the months immediately prior to a new update—during which the putative release is pushed out not just to the usual Fast and Slow distribution channels but also the Release Preview channel—that number hits about 0.8 or 0.9 percent. This doubling of the apparent size of the Insider program suggests that there's a surprisingly large number of Insiders that are using Release Preview builds, not just wanting to use the previews unless they're close to production ready.

A California bill that would impose the nation's strictest net neutrality law has been approved by another state Senate committee, bringing it closer to passage.

The California Senate Judiciary committee approved the bill Tuesday in a 5-2 vote, with Democrats supporting the net neutrality rules and Republicans opposing them.

“California can—and must—step up to re-establish the Obama-era net neutrality rules to protect consumers and our democracy," bill sponsor Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) said in an announcement.
