Spent an hour tinkering around instead of doing homework again..

 

side-by-side comparisons; mostly for myself lol

Okay side by side I'm in love with the burn-tooled hair in the 3rd one :x.

post #37593 of 166908

Well I don't really mind the thunderbolts, but it's just that nothing uses the thunderbolt and tonnes of stuff uses the USB...

 


Ill be heading to Jaben hk to see if I can demo the UE900, Fitear MH334, MH335, TO GO! 111 and JVC HA-FXT90.

The JVC HA-S500 is STILL only selling in japan.... frown.gif I wanna try dem carbon nanotubes....

The hair is good in #3 but the body coloring is good in #2. Combine them. #3's hair and #2 everything else

I would appreciate it if Psycho pass didn't use that high ptiched noise as she walked into the office.....

 

the house is so futuristic but the building looks like crap at the CID and not to mention.....tablet keyboards? You simulate floating panels and windows and AI that can interface with solid goods but you have a bulky tablet?

I would think anyone doing heavy typing would need a real keyboard. Not some keyboard without any feedback, unless future virtual mechnical keyboard on a tablet.

If the virtual AI could interface with solid objects and holographs. They could also simulate force feedback as well

 

But then again...guess what? You get used to things. If you type on a flat surface all your life, you get used to it

@Vocab

Yeah, reading and writing (and knowing a bit of Greek and Latin roots for English) is how you really expand. Also, if you want to know what a word really means, don't just look up the definition. Learn its etymology. Infinitely more elucidating.

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....

Swapping RAM isn't considered DIY, bowei, not that I expect you to know because you aren't much of a computephile/computer enthusiast. That's considered the basics, and isn't very DIY at all. We consider DIY building your own computer. Swapping your own parts isn't even considered DIY. It's considered maintenance (even though you "Do it Yourself").

 

I'm aware. You do know that right? There's a reason I'm a so called "enthusiast" and you consider yourself not one of "us" (to be honest, I don't like the term. I'm fine with the term "geek" but commoners don't know the difference between "geek" and "nerd" so I refrain from using it, even though it's a proud name but they just think lowly of us yet we're of superior intelligence in the field of computers).

 

It's mainly ultrabooks and the more portable laptops. Laptops considered "Office Laptops" or ones with mainly CPU power for office tasks and not much GPU power, desktop replacements, and gaming laptops usually have removable batteries.

 

No, I mean quality control upon release. I know Apple fixes it shortly, which I do applaud them for doing so. Unlike some companies (stares at Sandforce).

 

Stop throwing in Apple. Apple didn't develop it. Intel did. Intel licensed it to Apple so they could implement it first, so Intel could make more money and then after awhile it would start being adopted more, but I see that unlikely sometimes because USB 3.0 is more dominant and seems to be taking more of the market than Thunderbolt just because it's backwards compatible with USB 2.0 so we don't need to all get new devices or adapters or anything to use Thunderbolt.

So I should just skip nvidia then

 

Almost tried but I need COMPATIBLE hardware for it to run properly

I would get the 2GB. 2GB is a good amount.

 

Sort of. It's your choice. I would look at benchmarks and make a choice.

 

IIRC Hackintosh works with any x86 or x64 processor and such just like Windows. Hackintosh isn't Mac OS X which needs Apple approved stuff.

What text? You mean "Designed by b1o2r3i4s5"?

The Obj2 has mounting holes..... silly me.

Haha. Yeah, that was mixed. I made a sandwich of "YAY"s and "NEIGH"s.

 

No, I mean thank you for not putting any project name down, and please don't because we all can't decide on anything (well, it's just me who doesn't like project H because of some connotations that pervs or other Japanese fan community members might have). Designed by b1o2r3i4s5 is fine. That I don't mind. We need to give you credit.

This.

 

You should be able to find it at the Radioshack inside the mall. I don't really know any other stores nearby that carry the adapters. Maybe Walmart or Best Buy? Probably not.

Should be able to find something at Radioshack...

but the retina is still going with the same port config?

Have they not realized how stupid it is to have 2x thunderbolt + 1x HDMI? Your average consumer won't even touch the thunderbolts....

I'm still wondering if it means I can plug 3 external monitors to the retina to give 4 screens total rolleyes.gif

Maybe because they have no idea what Mini DisplayPort is and how vastly superior it is to HDMI.

Thunderbolt is vastly superior to HDMI. But yes, as a consumer descision, it is ...weird but this is Apple. They have ideas. They want to change the industry.

 

Their thunderbolt allows for daisy chaining MANY displays or storage together granted that they have their own power.

 

Yes you can, AND still have Thunderbolt Storage External drives AS WELL. Its 10Gb/s BOTH UPSTREAM AND DOWN. 

 

iMac:

 

 

Price? Same price of $1299 starting at complete with Apple touchpad Magic Mouse and wireless keyboard.

Didn't HTML5 kill flash?

 

Thunderbolt = Mini DisplayPort but with data transfer capabilities, AND IT'S INTEL'S INVENTION. THEY JUST LICENSED IT TO APPLE FIRST. GET IT RIGHT. YOU SPEAK LIKE APPLE OWNS IT.

 

I think Thunderbolt can only daisychain two 1920x1080 or 1920x1200 display or a single 2560x1440 or 2560x1600 display...I don't remember...I think it should be able to do more, but I think 2 was the limit for monitors.

 

YUS. Well, props to Intel for making Thunderbolt.

 

Looks very nice, as usual.

2nd everything + 3rd hair is awesome. 1st one is way too washed out on my monitor. Needs more saturation.

The entire computer enthusiast community is dying for Thunderbolt to be adopted and used in external graphics card enclosures due to the high bandwidth which is pretty close to PCIe x16 I believe, or it is PCIe x16 (I'm implying the 2.0 revision, not 3.0. I think that was it...) in a connector but whatever, you get the point; high bandwidth. Allows for external graphics cards for notebooks and ultrabooks to work better.

 

I thought the JVC HA-S400 and HA-S200 were coming to America first and then the HA-S500...but yeah, I want to listen to them too.

Good job. Maybe the dress should be a bit more saturated too? I don't know. Unless you want to the top part of the CIEM be the focal point, I guess that would be fine.

Its partly a view trick

 

It is THAT thin at the very side but the back is still rounded. Not fully flat. Think of an Egg shape. The back isn't very thick but here:

 its a LOT thinner despite so

 

Keep in mind that at the very best config this will sport:

3.2GHz Desktop version Quad Core intel i5 with turbo up to 3.6GHz

32GB DDR3 RAM

3TB HDD

768GB SSD

Nvidia Gefore FTX 680MX with 2GB GDDR5

4 USB 3.0

SDXC Card

Gigabit

2 Thunderbolt

Wireless N Dual Band

BlueTooth 4.0

 

New Retina IPS screen with 2560 by 1440 resolution

 

Weights 21 lbs


 

And how thin is it?

This. They're only viewing the thickness of the edge which is, I believe, 5mm. You can check the Anandtech live stream where they have the things listed out in a single post. The thickness of the entire unit at its greatest wasn't posted. It should run pretty warm with the best specs...well, probably scorching hot like every single iMac I've touched (even when idle. Ventilation is rather poor, but there is worse).

 

Wondering if the aluminum body will pose some issues with wireless and such just like the 3G issue with the Asus Transformer Prime (was it the TF3XX or something?) and act like a somewhat effective Faraday cage.

Haha it's going to be a hot product.

 

The antenna is around the screen so it's not really inside the aluminum unibody.
