Comment 8-core owner (Score 1) 526

As an owner of an 8-core CPU, he's right.... for now. There's a pitiful number of uses for me to have anything more than 4 cores (some games I've seen dip into a 5th core for asset loading, and that's it). Hopefully when the PS4/XB1 come out developers will start writing games to use more than 3 cores for game logic. Unless browsers start loading pages outside of a single thread, I'm unlikely to need anything beyond a 2-core system for non-gaming.

I went from a T410s to a T430s and the keyboard is killing me. They removed the F key spacing and the 3x2 layout, and now there's a printscreen key instead of a right-click key. It seems they saw the iMac keyboard and just pasted it onto their laptop. The rest of the hardware is still good but I can't use the keyboard for coding without getting frustrated.
