Same with the MBP. I'm not 100% on the first gen cores but AFAIK all Sandy Bridge CPUs have a GPU built right into them so really anything with a Sandy Bridge and a dedicated GPU will have dual videoVaries, but it's usually between 3 to 7 hours depending on what I'm doing with it.
I had no choice in the matter. It has a NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M but it also has the integrated video built into the Intel i7-640M CPU which it'll use when I want to conserve battery power. Dual video chips.
where did you get that. I'd like to get one for my Dell XPS
I'm also interested, but can you also fit a 2.5" HDD in it?
I don't see one for my particular notebook but I guess one of the generic ones should fit it. Also, that's the first site where I've ever seen such a variety of caddys, I hardly found any before.
Two pairs of headphones to try out, one Bluetooth and one USB.
Logitech ClearChat PC Wireless:
A few years ago I went through the same process and just sort of settled on a pair of Bluetooth headphones from Motorola. Those stopped accepting a charge about a month ago, after which I went out and for who knows why bought a RF model from Sony to try. I say this because I should have known to stay away from RF - I don't know why the really expensive "home audio" wireless headphones are all RF because RF sucks ass... unless you're putting your head in a vice five inches from the base then there is going to be anywhere from a little to a lot of static noise.
So far I really like the Logitechs because they are comfortable and sound the best of any wireless headphone I've tried, and seeing as how headphones (that don't cost a ton) seem to have a failure rate as bad as routers then who better to buy it from than Logitech who replace anything no questions asked within the warranty period.
The only thing to like about the Seinnheisers is that they are Bluetooth. I know Bluetooth for headphones never really took off, but I don't know why; it works with a ton of different devices without needing an adapter, gives you playback buttons, and best of all there is never any static or interference - you either have a signal or you don't. It sucks that Bluetooth headphones are such a rarity because this pair has no other redeeming qualities.
I'll probably stick with the Logitechs... I like Bluetooth but it seems dead, and Logitech's warranty is definitely a good idea on headphones me thinks.
so i can properly use my neighbors inetwebz until my own connection finally gets done
Can they also fine someone for not locking their car or their back door? What about having a phone on the back porch?
That just seems silly.
Just picked up another 8GB (2x4GB) of G.Skill Ripjaw DDR3-1333 from my friend who was having RAM compatability issues with his AM2+ mobo.
My plan now is to wait for April, when i will have to RMA my UD7 due to the sandy bridge chipset issue. At that time, after I deconstruct, I will order the following to finish my build:
2nd Sapphire HD6970 2GB
2nd Seagate 1.5TB 7200rpm HDD.
Putting together the money now.
