Well, then taking a shower now is DIY and so is turning on your computer.
I'm just saying. I'm not saying it's something that kills it. Should be of good quality RAM and you can always adjust timings and such if necessary through the BIOS, unless it's at a good speed or the BIOS won't let you.
Hm...well, I never really noticed. I don't really look into ultrabooks since I don't need one, same with a laptop in most cases. The only times is during travel which is only once or twice a year though.
Hm...I feel like their quality control on the first production models just started dropping a bit recently. They just fix it shortly after though which is nice. I wish other companies could listen to their consumers like that sometimes when it comes to complaints, unlike Sandforce and they several month delay with new firmware for Sandforce drives. Intel is excused though because their Sandforce drives are perfectly find and are BSOD free (in most cases. Maybe a few errors from time to time but that's it).
The fact that they include 8GB base would make me a happy customer, so I don't have too much of a reason to complain. I'm just pointing it out.
I'm not really sure what the heck they throw in, so it's nice just for a safety precaution just in case they throw in a horrible drive, which in most cases they don't.
Reminds me, smart move (easily predictable though) on Intel to go with Apple first for Thunderbolt, but I wish Thunderbolt and minidisplayport adoption would happen faster though.
Eh, we have to take quizzes.
...you know what i mean. In computer terms. DIY means components. Where you can rely on yourlself to do something useully done by company employees
Apple was the first major PC (Personal Computer) maker to use EFI...they don't use BIOS and their EFI is largely not user configurable. Apple relys on uniformity, no tweaking for you. its not an overclocking lovers computer. Its the average man and professionals
...nowadays. Many regular comptuers still do but a good portion of companies if not close to all have a computer right now with no removable battery switch.
It didn't. Take for example that a company X has a 5%(its huge, just for example) failure rate. They make 100 units, and thus 5 will have problems. Out of those 5 that they replace, say 4 of them complain or make it known online. Now you have 5 borken units with 4 reports online.
That company then expands and now they have a 4% failure rate but with 1000 units. They now have 40 failed units and 30 make it known online that their units failed.....what happened? Company X now has a lower failure rate than before(usually the failure rate is very low, so an even lower number is awesome) but you now read online that there are quite some posts of people with these "problems". Did something change? No. For example the purple tint in the new iPhone 5. People thought there was one as some people just noticed it, and knowing that there was a saphire glass now(some did) blamed that the iPhone 5 has a purple tint issue when pointed at the sun. Consumer reports did a test...there was no problem, every phone produces the same effect and the iPhone 5 has no problem with it. What happened? With a tremendous more people, many dumb, people noticce and nit pick the small stuff and as there are so many, they will post it online so when the next person looks, there will be stuff online. This is what happens usually, now you are educated on what happens. This deals into user error. This also applies to THINKING that more units are breaking when that is just not true. More are adopting and using it and thus more info and amount of posts will be generated on it, even if the process has improved two fold.
It isn't happening fast but as this is Apple and Intel that developed it, they could care less(they do but you get me), nothing is based or holding onto this standard, and whether they like it or not, Intel with its ultrabooks program and Apple is pushing for it. Big players, even if someone comes up with something else, with Intel supporting Thunderbolt and the new largest ocmpany in the world co making it(made) and using it on all their devices and a new cable called thunderbolt. It would be hard for it to not be popular....
