  • The m.2 form factors just seem to be a waste of money right now. While the promise of kick-butt speeds seems alluring, in practice it just seems to be an empty promise of wasted potential. Plus, they're really expensive for a top-notch one right n…
  • Here's an old thread that I get to resurrect! The memory should probably be saved on. Unless you're planning on doing a lot of compiling, or overclocking, go with the far cheaper DDR4 2400 speeds. I've not seen a benchmark that can justify the ad…
  • So this is a bit late to the party, but I can say that for Case 1: My tablet will do MP3 songs + browsing internet at the same time. That implies that those two tasks are nearly too simple to stress anything. Similarly, showing HD video playback+…
  • Cliff: So you're not telling me anything I don't already know. Whether it's PhysX, or a clever implementation of OpenCL that just so happens to do physics like rendering isn't really that important, at least not in my thought. What I see is tha…
  • I don't have the Envy 14 (mine is a 15), but the Envy 14 has switchable Intel/AMD graphics...
  • So is the killer app for this the display, or the display plus Fermi-sourced GPU? I know you can get the Dreamcolor display on a far cheaper GPU.
  • I wonder if that means that the HP Envy 14 users are SOL with this update.

  • Ideal phone: * iPhone size/weight/resolution but with SAMOLED (or whatever the Galaxy S uses) screen that's not Pentile. * Less glass to shatter/break - metal/carbon fiber exterior rather than glass * made by and backed by a company that provi…

  • The reality is that you could count the number of games that actually use the physics accelerated stuff to a more than just a quick "Gee whiz wow ... meh" gimmicky degree on about 2 fingers... That having been said, any NVidia card from the "8800…

  • Interestingly enough, many of these issues are side-skirted by getting a business class notebook. Also, if you recommend installing Avira or Avast, then also suggest anything you have to do to disable the built in antivirus software Windows 7 com…
  • I was thinking about the situation Gate28 described. Back even 15 years ago, that sort of thing would have happened "all the time". Unless you left a forwarding number, there was no way to get back in touch with the people around you 24/7. I st…
  • Meh, either way, there's BSD in that thar OSX. So what does that say? That the religious wars of RedHat vs. Debian vs. Slackware applies with Linux vs. OSX? Oh, and btw, those top 5 reasons to buy a fit with any . Each of the 5 things menti…
  • I am here for the achievement. And to introduce myself. As me. Honest! Oh, and is there something wrong with the "change my avatar" page? I get it as solid black...
