It's a solid piece of metal on the bottom, it would take a fair bit of pressure to dent it. If you look at the insides, the outward dent could have been caused by one of the screws down the bottom left corner above the battery and below the fan: but someone would have had to have put pressure on the back like sat on it accidentally. It might not have been you that did it, maybe it was left in a bag and someone stood on it or kicked it and didn't tell you. A new base...
The base 11" there has been bought recently on eBay for about $600-700 so offering $391 is 55-65% of what it's worth. You'd lose about 15% in fees selling via eBay so you lose about 20-30% of the value selling to Gazelle. This is obvious really because Gazelle isn't a charity, they're buying to make a profit in resale and make $100m revenue per year. They said they'd paid out $170m since 2006. I assume they're making a profit now but it will be a fraction of the $100m per...
Whatever it is they're working on, one thing's for absolute certain - it better look nothing like a Fiat.http://www.fiat.co.uk/fiat-500/galleryhttp://www.fiat.co.uk/uk/showroomIt ought to be like the Aston Martin:http://www.astonmartin.com/cars/the-new-vanquishFisker even designed another version:http://www.autoblog.com/2015/03/14/fisker-thunderbolt-aston-martin-vanquish-amelia-island-official/They can price it like a Fiat if they want. It wouldn't hurt to put a TV with...
It can, it can be built with 4 lanes with 10Gbps each and some protocols can use all of them. The actual USB protocol doesn't seem to be able to use them all at once per device but Displayport is able to. It gets about 32Gbps after allowing for overhead, which is enough for 5K 30bit at 60Hz.http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20150106006266/en/DisplayLink-Shows-5K-Display-Connectivity-Single-USBIt turns out that Apple isn't using version 3.1 gen 2 ports...
The same people who made Thunderbolt contributed to USB C so these are not competing with each other. Other Macbooks can't have the same form factor as the 12" Macbook because they need fans inside.Thunderbolt 3 will be 40Gbps, USB C is 10Gbps. The following site has details about how USB C's bandwidth can be used:http://www.vesa.org/news/vesa-brings-displayport-to-new-usb-type-c-connector/It looks like it can have 4 lanes, each with 10Gbps but it doesn't look like all...
Manufacturers resisted Firewire just because it was Apple, which eventually got into cameras. They resisted mini-displayport until Apple got VESA to adopt it. They resisted Thunderbolt before Intel started pushing it. Even HTML5 Canvas:http://www.blixtsystems.com/2010/04/html5-canvas-proprietary-apple-technology/"First of all, “flash” is not proprietary. The SDK, compiler and Flex framework is FOSS. Swf and RTMP formats are open, and the VM is open.Why don’t they open...
Some people here say their newer 2013/2014 Airs are very quiet while streaming: http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=1248799 Either the new Air or new Macbook should be ok. It will depend on if it's Flash streaming, Netflix etc. The Macbook adaptor setup to hookup to the TV might not be as straightforward due to the single port, assuming you aren't streaming via an Apple TV. However, the display quality on the Macbook will be a lot better and no fan means it...
There's a report out saying Apple had a significant input in the development of USB C: http://www.cultofmac.com/315671/it-turns-out-apple-invented-usb-c/ That doesn't come as a surprise. The rest of the industry is very reluctant to move to new ports. Apple pushed mini-displayport and was met with resistance. That doesn't necessarily mean they'll ditch Lightning because those ports help keep iOS hardware Apple exclusives and also certified but if they switched, it means...
I think the clasp on the watch looks nicer than the main part: Just turn it all upside down, put the OLED panel in there and leave the battery and sensors in the other part. Half the thickness on each side. That way when the battery runs out, you just switch bands.
Some of the other manufacturers have fans in them, the ones like the Dell with the i5/i7 have fans. The Asus in that video is listed here as being fanless:http://www.asus.com/Notebooks_Ultrabooks/ASUS_ZENBOOK_UX305/The new Mac Pro stays quiet under load ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tdFzmmrldoQ ). This helps in audio production environments.The size doesn't constrain them vs performance for the spec they offer, the old model was bigger than necessary for the parts they...
