    I have had it since release. so 6 months?

    I am not a big fan of Partitions on my OS drive, that's just me. If you don't have enough space on the 500 then I would use the external, just shut off sleep mode as it may take several hours to complete.

    Tuck the longer black cable under the white one to make it seat better.

    It depends. With smaller OS drives there is no need to do partition. But if you have a 1 or 2 TB one then it's better to make separate partitions. Keeps the clutter down as well which can mess up the OS drive if you keep everything on the desktop or my documents folder.

    Alright, thanks. Using macrium, does it back up EVERYTHING on the OS drive?

    I use clonezilla and backup my boot partition as a compressed archive. Works like a charm. Being a linux based utility it has tonnes of features that I find really useful i.e., cloning raw drives, moving a drive image to a big partition on another drive and vice versa etc. Boots from a USB so you don't have to do any preparations inside the OS.

    Just took care of the yellowing palm rest problem for good. Looks really clean now!

    AliExpress. Perfect fit. I have to admit the dye they have made for cutting these layers is really precise! I have used just this part of the cover though, haven't covered up the sides, bottom panel and the screen top (The screen is going back in a few days anyway so won't waste it on that).

    Are these laptops turning yellow over time? I never wrest my palms on this laptop so I’m hoping it stays white.

    Nice! I wish DBrand would start producing 51m skins, doesn't look like they will though. May have to try one of these out as the only other vendor has strange colors.

    Been thinking about picking up a screen protector as well.
