I would say this rather undermines your objection to the statement "competition is good". If competition is nearly a necessary precondition of a good outcome then the absence of competition nearly precludes a good outcome. The addition of competition therefore moves us from a situation where a good outcome is nearly impossible to a situation where it is possible. The good outcome does not need to actually materialise for this change to be a good change, and therefore it...
There are very few things that make me want to throw my iPhone at the wall, but the AppleInsider iPhone site manages it... 1) It seems to be very buggy with respect to redirecting from the main site, particularly with # anchors in the URL. From Google Reader I frequently get sent to the wrong article, or no article at all (just the front page). 2) The top and bottom bars that disappear when you scroll are a dreadful, dreadful idea. I scroll down to get the next...
I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks Apple's obsession with thinness is bordering on the pathological. Thinness in a phone is essential. Thinness in a laptop is nice. Thinness in an all-in-one desktop is... not really that important. Being able to run decent CPUs and graphics cards is very, very important. Anorexia is the right term - killing sales in pursuit of losing inches when they are already too thin. I'd like an all-in-one. I'd like to run OS/X. I like...
But ASUS are just releasing this laptop:http://www.trustedreviews.com/home-c...Gx-Notebook/p1A quad core QX9300, with a 260M GTX GPU. That's way ahead of any all-in-one I'm hearing about.There's a whole genre of "Gaming Laptops", Alienware and others specialise in them. So why not an all-in-one?
\ Did you read my post at all? It was about putting parts from a gaming notebook into an all-in-one. I even gave a link to an example gaming notebook, significantly more powerful than any all-in-one on the market.
Hi all, Here's something that's confusing me. I was hoping to get a new iMac, partly with a view to playing top level new 3D games under boot camp, because I really like OS/X for non-gaming purposes and I really, really like the idea of a good looking all-in-one computer (hate clutter and cables...). So I was disappointed with the new iMacs - and went looking for a windows gaming PC all-in-one. And found.... nothing. What's confusing me is that there are laptops...
I was a little disappointed with this update, I must say. The things I value in an iMac are the operating system, iLife and the compact design (just one cable...). However, I also like playing games, and am particularly keen on Empire: Total War and Rise of Flight, the latter of which in particular is apparently hugely helped by a quad core processor (to the tune of 30-40% increase in speed, according to the devs). I'd hoped that the new iMac would sort out my dilemma,...
