    I recently bought a Lenovo Ideapad with 11th gen i5 processor for £550 - speed/power is very impressive (noticeably faster than my work laptop). Built in screen is quite rubbish though, I imagine if you wanted to be working on visual stuff you'd probably want it plugging into a monitor.

    You still happy with the beast? We're going to order a shed this weekend (though not the super thick walled security version like that)..

    So they do - must have missed that one, they have so many variations out at the moment!

    Yes mine's the Vintera, fancied the JMJ as I (controversially for on here) do like a relic finish but couldn't justify the price difference for something that's not going to be my number one bass. Vintera has very similar specs (lollypop tuners, 41mm nut, alder body) for a chunk less. Pick-up sounds decent enough for me, though maybe one day I'll replace it for something else.

    Thanks - they're pretty fun to play! I'll probably use it as is for now but when the strings go off, swap them for flats for a bit more thump. The PJ's look good, I just think it's a bit of a shame they couldn't get a mustang style bridge onto them (even one of the smaller ones), not that the bridges are any better, I think they're just part of the look.

    Kind of custom; I'm not sure if they're still going but at the time when you ordered you just picked your covering & grill cloth then they made it for you, it wasn't a special order or anything. If you wanted plain black with standard grill it would have been the same process. They're awesome cabs though; they do the mellow/vintage sound really well but then I've also gigged them in metal/hardcore bands too & they sound really aggressive when driven.

    Got a new little friend, it's taken me a while to get used to how tiny it is compared to my re-issue 57P bass which is an absolute beast!

    Sounds good though, great for a bit of desk noodling! Yes there was budget creep.

    I also have the Deco M5 (though only 2 of them) - the connection is solid through a 3 bed house.
    The one furthest away from the router is about 30% slower than the main one but substantially better than the repeater/extender we were using before.

    It's generally not a slow fade; my experience is they sound fine then when the battery is about to go you've got about 20 seconds of slightly fuzzy notes, then nothing. So could easily happen when you're not playing.

    Has anyone got rid of an old shed before? If so, how did you do it please?

    I have a shed that's half-mush, half-wood - it's a liability & needs to go. I'm in SE London with no car so taking it to the dump is out. I looked at those skip bags but they're horrendously expensive - any lower cost option would be appreciated please!

    Nice - just need to get some rugs down!
