I think the early Atoms might have been poor and that's how they got the bad rep but the one in my netbook seems to be pretty good to me and I really like the battery life.
I would almost be certain they are bothering someone else with their windows problems now. Not a bad strategy actually.
I think it's obvious this isn't even about design it's about not wanting competition on a level playing field.
I got out the door and luckily checked what I'd bought they had given me and obviously used copy and charged me the full retail price, the UMD case was even cracked the manual was a mess after a second argument and a massive waste of my time I eventually got new shrinkwrapped copy.
I don't know how they can possibly believe stunts like this benefit them I haven't bought anything from them since.
Battery life playing games on the Ipod is terrible and you are lucky to get an hour and a half on a full charge while my PSP still gets about the 5 hour mark and then has the lucury of switching batterys.
I've been going back to my PSP more and more lately and despite not even liking the 3DS I'm tempted to buy it as a stopgap until Vita although mainly just for the Streetfighter IV 3D.
I can also say that after apples court shennagins with Samsung and some other companys I don't intend to ever replace my iPod for a new one so they have lost at least one customer because of it.
My desktop is probably only slightly slower and that one is still on vista and needs replaced maybe I've just lucky in this respect.
It does seem strange to me I'd love to see how fast I could boot them with a fast SSD.
Wouldn't suprise me if they forced this through anyway though for a short term profit.
I just go for pure durability with my watches but the thought of it setting the time itself appealed to me. It corrects the time itself a few times a day and the Solar powered aspect seems to works well I've never seen the power indicator drop. Nice thing about the G-Shock line is there are so many models you can always find something to your taste and their all very hard to damage accidently.
Bit early to think he is guilty but I fear they may need a scapegoat anyway.
