Context is important. I was talking about the Expresscard, in the context of laptops, on the topic of adding USB 3 to an older laptop. On the exact bandwidth, I only took it from the Wikipedia page on Expresscard. Maybe they're wrong, maybe it's a difference between signal rate vs. data payload. I don't understand the discrepancy. They do rate 2.5GT/s. Might be part of the problem.I wasn't talking about the external graphics, though that was in the discussion in places. I...
I think batteries are a concern. I have a mid-2007 MBP which I'm on my third battery, not counting one that was replaced (I think) due to the Sony defective battery recall. The dead batteries started pillowing pretty quickly, so you really want to get it replaced within a few days of dying, if you can't pre-empt it by getting it before it goes. On at least one, I didn't have a notice that it was dying, it just quit charging.
I agree. Most parts and materials are very cheap. The big thing that often makes smaller electronics cheaper is higher integration (fewer parts, easier assembly) and using less silicon circuit area. It's really very complicated as you suggest, and this only goes into the cost to make it.To add to that, the price of the finished product doesn't have to reflect the cost to make it, you charge what you can. Smaller electronics might have a higher price just because it's more...
I don't know what your problem is, N8TERSWORLD (banned 3 times), but I don't see where you have a grasp of the realities of business and manufacturing, and a passive-aggressive stance isn't going to help you. Clue, you need some.
It looks like it won't give the speed. The bandwidth on PCIe 1.0 machines is is 2.5Gbps, PCIe 2.0 is 5.0Gbps.
There are USB 3 Express Cards.
This is an Apple-centric site. Do you think it's escaped anyone's attention that similar is allowed against Apple users on Android-centric sites? Why are we supposed to play nice against Android fans that troll this forum?Rule zero violation.
Which is a tangential issue, and I honestly don't think this is a big deal. It was only an issue in regards to reported hard drive capacity vs. what was said on the box, and that issue seems to have died down with better reporting in the computer dialogue.
That's a bit of a downer. The main programs aren't included with iPads either.
Weather is available on the notification pull-down menu, same with stocks.
