    Well, in Fiji they mean you pay duty of 3.5% (of the value of the equipment) and then you pay another 30% of the value plus the 3.5% duty. They compound it here.

    Obviously, you should see if Epilo has any advice. However, it sounds only too much like a bad motherboard to me. My mini went through three of them. :-(

    If you get rid of Win 8 (hopefully it actually is 8.1 as 8.0 had MANY problems) you may have fewer problems. (Even Microsoft has said Win 8 was a mistake.)

    I was pretty happy with my Epilog at 45 watts. However, jumping to 80 and then 100+, even with DC tubes, has made many jobs much much faster and easier. I cut and engrave a lot of curved items...

    I have seen that my Chinese lasers are unable to run (fire) as fast as my Epilog. In doing inlays, the Chinese lasers need to run relatively slow to get clean deep "cuts" for the inlays. However, my...
