Upgrade Yoga 2 13 to SSD

BestBuy sells a nice Yoga 2 13 laptop at a significant discount under the traditional Yoga 2 Pro 13 laptop. However, one of the sacrifices on the lowest end Yoga 2 is that it lacks a SSD. Instead it makes due only with a 500GB HDD Thankfully, you CAN add a SSD to the Yoga 2 Pro AND keep the HDD installed as well! All you need for the upgrade is some patience and the correct SSD: M.2 2280 form

Fix Chrome blurry fonts on Lenovo Yoga 2 13

Disable display scaling on high DPI settings (check this box and apply!)

One of the first things I do on a new laptop is install Google Chrome. Sadly, Chrome and Windows 8 do not play well on even moderately high-resolution laptop screens Case in point, my new Lenovo Yoga 2 13 (not the pro model) has a 1920×1080 13.3″ display which is fairly pedestrian by today’s pixel density standards. Regardless, Chrome fonts look very blurry when compared to IE or most other Win8 applications. Solution: adjust Chrome properties Go to Desktop mode

Windows 8 disable left swipe (Yoga 2 Pro etc.)

Uncheck the box, the edge swipes will be disabled!

Recently I setup a new PCIt is a nice Dell 660s small form factor (SFF) PC which came Windows 8.

Thankfully, I was able to find a compatabile driver that has been working perfectly. Here is the download link: Dell

Dell 660s Ethernet driver for Windows 7 (Realtek RTL8111F network controller)

Driver success!

Recently I setup a new PC for Branson’s Nantucket’s architectural department. It is a nice Dell 660s small form factor (SFF) PC which came Windows 8. However, some of their architectural software is only compatible with Windows 7. That meant it was time to install one of my spare Windows 7 Professional SP1 licenses and everything went smoothly. However, Windows 7 did not have a driver for the 660s’ ethernet controller. Thankfully, I was able to find a compatabile driver

5 monitor setup

(3) Apple Cinema Displays and (2) Flat screen LCD TVs

My good friend John Odom recently sent me a photo of his current office setup: John absolutely loves his three 23″ Apple Cinema Displays.
