comment Which protocol does my Asus EeePC T101MT Wi-Fi support?
@Ilan The way you tell what protocols a device supports is by checking the specifications. It really is the most reliable way.

comment Which protocol does my Asus EeePC T101MT Wi-Fi support?
@Ilan It sounds like there are two questions here, one that you asked and one that you want answered. Your question doesn't say anything about authorities or experiments.

Without a clock, when you asked a question, how would you know when you had an answer?

Can you maybe take a picture of the effect? It's hard to understand what it looks like.

comment RAID 5, Read Speed and Caching
It depends on the controller. Some of them have good RAID 5 performance and some don't.

comment RAID 5, Read Speed and Caching
They're both software RAID and neither of them is going to perform well in a RAID 5 configuration.

What hardware or software would you use for the cache partition? For the RAID 5? What operating system?

comment How can I maximize laptop battery service life
@RockPaperLizard That's why I said, "Check if the laptop gives you options in its power manager to prioritize battery life. That will give you the maximum possible life."

comment How can I maximize laptop battery service life
@RockPaperLizard If neither charging nor discharging the battery is the best thing to do, then that's what the laptop's charge controller will do. The charge controller is designed by experts who know what is best for the particular setup he has. If keeping it at 70%-80% is what's best, then that's what the controller will do. The controller's job is to keep the battery healthy and the more choices it has, the better choices it can make.

comment .bat that calls AFUDOS to flash BIOS
@user35915 I doubt it for two reasons. One, the q parameter wasn't specified, so it's interactive and will give you a chance to refuse. Two, there are still basic compatibility checks done, and I believe those are sufficient.

comment What will happen powerwise if you plug a USB-C device to another USB-C device?
@Jack You can theoretically do almost anything. The question is what such devices will actually allow you to do, and there's no way to know yet since the devices do not exist.

Is this a laptop or a desktop? Are you using an internal display?
