if you want a gaming laptop there aren't many other choices, and they are all priced around the same
I don't watch Top Gear. I don't understand the purpose of faked reviews. People do take it seriously.
well that's the problem, you can't understand what top gear does if you don't watch it. It's a comic show where they destroy cars, make stupid challenges to decide what's the best car and give their very own opinion on the car they test on the track, and everyone that watches top gear knows that they absolutely hate electric cars
blizzard uses case insensitive passwords, it's fun since their games are probably the most targeted by hackers, I know they have authenticators and they lock the account as soon as they detect a suspicious login but I still don't see any reason on why they don't use case sensitive passwords
I never heard of a crysis 3 leak, I think you are confusing it with crysis 2, there was an almost open multiplayer alpha(nvidia would give away key to pretty much everyone) at the beginning of november, but the performance was quite awful on my system(3930k @4.4ghz and GTX580), I think it was around 18fps with everything maxed out but I guess it was probably a debug build so it's hard to say how it will run when it gets released
Win7 gets better battery life with composition because it offloads to the GPU instead of using the CPU. Vista had a lot of issues with RTM, not sure how SP3 is doing, but most people I know skipped Vista anyway.
that's not true, the dwm in both vista and 7 uses gpu acceleration, that's why you couldn't enable it on older version of vmware
it is a good thing valve has a steam client for linux
steam was the easy part, now we need to wait till they port all games to linux but I don't think that's gonna happen anytime soon
Hey, we're giving our OS away for free, no license or hack needed!
this is not true, they check if your windows 8 is activated they just don't check if a valid serial was used, that's why you need to activate your windows 8 with a fake kms server before doing this
And no dual boot, and they can continue with the plan to make OSX into desktop iOS, complete with walled garden.
With such impressive "features" they might as well name it Alcatraz.
then they could claim that it's rock solid
Known for QuickTime
if only he destroyed that as well
So far, there have only been a couple 'proof of concept' viri for Linux. Nobody's figured out a way to pry any money away from us yet.
but linux antivirus aren't used to protect linux, they are useful if you run a mail server or a proxy so you can clean mails and webpage before they infect a windows user, or to clean an infected windows installation, for example the kaspersky live cd is based on linux
you clearly don't know what you are talking about if you are comparing virtualbox with vmware, especially since we are talking about vmware vsphere and not workstation, virtualbox is fine if you need a vm on your pc but it's absolutely terrible on a server
vsphere is an OS that acts as an hypervisor not just a software that you can install on an existing os that let's your run a vm
for the console I was talking about the fact that 90% of pc games are console ports right now so with a new generation of consoles the pc version should also be better optimized otherwise we will have a lot games that runs at 20 fps
I had a dualcore(E6600) for 5 years and pretty much every new game in the past 3 years can use two or more cores, even if it's just two you have to consider the other programs running in the background, for example on bad company 2 punkbuster had a bug that after a few minutes it would use 20-30% of cpu, the game itself uses ~90% of cpu and because of punkbuster there was a lot of stuttering, now I have a sixcore(3930k) and yeah maybe six cores are too much for games but some of them like bf3 can already use them and I think pretty soon most games will use at least 4 cores, we'll just have to wait for the playstation and xbox to go "next gen" once again
on the desktop both windows and osx have an integrated h264 decoder, on linux is probably just a matter of installing ffmpeg or something like that
I don't really want to pay more for a product, no one does, but I'd be one of those people who'd pay more for BF4. Why?
I wont be. Why?
Because Battlefield 3 was shit. Because they made the unlocables too lopsided, because after they charge you the US$70 which translates into no less then A$150 they still want $20 odd a month for premium which like unlockables, will be so lopsided as to make the game unplayable if you don't pony up the monthly danegeld, sorry, subscription fee.
BF 1942 and BF2 were works of art, BF Bad Company 2 was good, BF3 was just a huge steaming pile of unbalanced crap that I stopped playing after 3 days.
I think you are full of bullshit, how can you judge an online game if you played it for only 3 days, also pretty much all battlefields had dlc(they were called expansion/booster pack at the time) 1942 had road to rome, bf2 had special forces, euro forces and armored fury, 2142 had northern strike and bc2 had vietnam, if you don't want to buy them it's fine you can still play the game, there are tons of bf3 servers with just the vanilla bf3, the new unlocks included in the dlc don't give any advantages over the vanilla weapons, they don't give you nukes just another weapon with slightly different stats, also it was exactly the same in bf2 and 2142, you could unlock new weapons or gadgets for each kit if you had the expansion pack
Last but not least there isn't a monthly fee, there are 5 dlcs you can either buy them at 15€ each or buy premium which is 50€ and you get all of them plus some extra goodies(nothing special to be honest, just some skins and some game guide), I was a bit skeptical at the beginning because close quarter didn't seem very good, but it's actually quite fun if you want to play something different from time to time, again you are not forced to buy anything just like you weren't forced on previous battlefield
