Use RAM from Crucial.com. You'll get a good price and stellar quality. For the price max out your RAM. It is worth it! As far as the OS goes, it sounds like you are already doing great. Normally I tell people to look at it as an adventure and a chance to actually enjoy turning your computer on rather than approach it was an expectation of frustration and that is enough to change the whole experience. And this from a seasoned Windows technician: when you are trying...
I had pretty bad luck with my first one, too. The static was consistent and I couldn't have a clear conversation with the iPhone in my pocket. I exchanged it later and the new one I got performs much better, though I still occasionally have to deal with static. If someone is having too much trouble with one of these guys they should take it back for exchange under the warranty. That said, I wouldn't call this a stellar product.
These programs have always supported the installation of basic versions of Vista. It was the support teams for these programs that did not answer questions or help people with the associated installations, and that was only because it was against the Microsoft end user license agreement. I imagine they've reversed themselves since then as Microsoft has changed their stance.
You have got to be kidding me... Mac Air is a mistake before we have even had a chance to see how successful it is with the niche market it was designed for? And nevermind that it is pioneering new technology in that we will enjoy in Macbooks and Macbook Pros. It also seems like this guy didn't do his homework regarding the Macbook Air. Apple TV 1st Edition was not successful. I think it was a necessary stepping stone, though, for Apple TV 2, and Apple made good on...
We're a fair distance off from people wanting to manage and collect 30 GB movie downloads. Good luck enjoying Planet Earth as downloaded content.
The value of storage vs. speed will be different for all of us. If the storage is not needed now, and, say, 160 GBs gives us plenty of free space, sometimes it is nicer to get the speed and worry about storage sometime down the road when it matters (and 300 GBs is common place for laptop hard drives). The OP has to make that choice for themselves. Back to your mention of $20, that is about the difference in price I was encountering when I was shopping around for the right...
Obviously programs which depend on page files will benefit the most, but don't forget -- the OS depends on cache files too. When I upgraded my laptop's hard drive from 5400 RPM to 7200 RPM the speed difference was noticeable. It was not an extremely large upgrade, of course, but the price difference between 5400 RPM and 7200 RPM is not that great assuming you are looking at quality hard drives. If the greater storage is the priority then all is settled, but if the storage...
Sell it.No phone has been holding resale value like the iPhone. People are selling iPhones with cracked screens for nearly $300. I sold my 8 GB iPhone for the price I paid to buy my new 16 GB iPhone. Even when the new model comes out the current generation will still hold value among buyers who aren't comfortable spending the highest price. I suspect they will continue to update the current models with new features as possible and that the only thing left behind will be in...
5400 RPM? Sure... good storage... but why? If you're going to upgrade, upgrade to a carefully chosen 7200 RPM drive.
PS3 was a success for the company even before it turned profitable. Without PS3 the HD war would have been very different, and it could have been Sony that was hemorrhaging money like Toshiba is right now. Sales of the PS3 are picking up more and more and manufacturing cost is going to keep going down (especially with the natural cost drops of progressive technology and the widespread implementation of Blu-ray). PS3 also now has some real heavy-hitters coming in the near...
