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.

@iMac

 ∑(O_O;)

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.

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.

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.

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...

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

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.

This.

The definition of DIY is VERY different. It depends on how you look at it... I just simply used a word...... a word ಠ_ಠ ಠ_ಠ ಠ_ಠ ಠ_ಠ ಠ_ಠ 

A ...word!.....a WORD..... 

 

Computer Enthusiat me? Not so? How?

 

Replacing RAM is considered a Do it yourself project to most. And no..getting nutella is not DIY Ծ_Ծ

 

Not one of who? I'm not a regular enthusiast. I am much much more open and don't fall into bias and subjectivity. So while I'm not what most enthusiasts would call an enthusiast in terms of what they envision copies of their fellow enthusiasts are like. I am one per definition and will just use the term as thats what people call us. Otherwise, I'd just use whatever I want. I'd go with Panda ..just plain panda. Done

 

They co made Lightpeak

Thunderbolt was developed by Intel and brought to market with technical collaboration from Apple.

Intel made it and Apple did some stuff. I doubt they did much other than say stuff like "we want this and this and that and that feature" it just sounds fancy. but hey, credit is still given to them.

 

 

Thunderbolt allows for up to 6 as long as they have their own power source. I believe this was each port but then again, it may have limitations from the southbridge or northbridge(lets just say chipset) of the mobo and what it itself can support at max.

 

There are some people that have laptops with external graphics cards through huge adapters already and people with desktops and to look nice, a huge PCIE cable and then dock on the wall somewhere but I feel you. It depends on how it will be implemented or how it will work. Either companies support it, or it will just work on any computer as its not hardware dependent(say, you just need a Thudnerbolt port) I don't know how thunderbolt actually works works and how it interfaces with the Windows OS and so yeah.

Yeah there is worse but we must consider that those components are "made" to run at those temperatures so while they are hot to us and people that are used to Enthust or Gaming PC cooled desktops, they are "normal"

 

 

They have used an aluminum unibody for half a decade and have a state of the art($100 million USD) wirless signal testing lab(they are a phone maker....and they updated it TREMENDOUSLY after the iPhone 4 problem)..... and as far as I can tell. No.  Everything gets sent nice and neatly.

Didn't manage to caught up with some news like the new iMac.

Couple of things I like to comment out. It's interesting where Apple is heading. The pursuit of thinness is always seductive for the consumer even though Apple only thinned the edges out as you guys clearly pointed out. One thing I despise about this is the absence of an optical drive but then that's just nitpicking because I bet people who'll buy this will have enough money to buy an external one.

It does have very seductive specs especially that IPS panel and at a quite aggressive price point (mind you after going through the optional extras which most will do, it will get relatively expensive just like the myriads of optional extras in a Porsche 911) I'm actually tempted to own one if I have the money.

But still, the only iDevices IMO that are worth getting are the iPod Classic and the MacBook Pro.

@bowei

building a computer from ready-made PCBs and modules is not concidered to be "DIY" for me. 

That's like saying making toast is a DIY project.... which isn't. biggrin.gif

 

@vortex

+1 for MBP / iPod

Diy means differently to different people see. The main meaning of diy was building or soing stuff without contracted or professional help from specialized people. And thus diy would apply to anything we specialized folks do


What is worth it differs from person to person
post #37617 of 130117
Kind of a pointless discussion but I'm going to have to go with bowei on the definition of RAM change being DIY or not.
Only because over half the computer literate population does not know how to change RAM themselves. Go on the street, ask around randomly "Do you know how to use a computer?" and follow with in the event of a yes, "Do you know how to change RAMs?". Don't just ask the geeky looking ones.

But no, it definitely does not fit in the definition of DIY where it stands for "acquire parts for and build it yourself from scratch".


@HidamariSketch episode 3
Man putting Yuno in earthquake simulator is brilliant idea lol.

In some Asian countries DIY also stands for cooking (vs. buying precooked/frozen), self-assemble (like IKEA stuff, vs. having a person do it for you), or even self-serve at the cash register (vs. a cashier doing everything for you and telling you the total).

So as bowei said, the definition of DIY varies from people to people.
Put it this way: changing RAMs yourself (doing-it-yourself) is a grey zone of DIY.
What boris is doing is true DIY in any standards.
^referring to stuff like amp building lol. <----*edited in*
