    The Touch Cover works surprisingly well when you think about it. It's pretty nice, pretty colourful, and best of all, acts as a "lid".

    Ah, Firefox.

    I've noticed that Internet Explorer's memory usage is highly dependent on the amount of installed system memory - if there's lot of them, expect it to use them well, but if you're memory-constrained, seeing the memory usage below 160 MB with 5 desktop tabs is not impossible - in fact, it's feasible. I think other browsers may or may not be like that.

    Usually you only need the 32-bit and 64-bit, if applicable, versions of the latest Java platform (The "7" in Java 7 blahblahblah).

    A 64-bit browser does not help, though, especially with regard to add-ons and extensions, and sometimes, scripting performance. What browser are you using?

    Turns out waiting works - this broken laptop? It's getting fixed. Let's hope it gets to survive to its 24th month of its existence.

    I'm actually thinking of getting a gaming laptop of the 14" variety. Still portable and not too heavy

    I'm beginning to wonder whether I need a dedicated graphics processor in my next laptop at this point as I've noticed that the 4th-gen Intel Core processors seem to have a good enough GPU to play pretty much everything but Company of Heroes 2 at 30 FPS+ at 720p. Hmm...
  25. Twiggy
    September 5, 2013 08:42:21 AM
    It's a bit funny and also unsettling how Surface RT is just one C++ IDE away from me not needing a laptop at all. I can execute Python code just fine with the tablet thanks to a Python 3 port ��

    Enjoy your high-speed connection, then.

    *goes back to HSPA+ (42 Mbps)*

    Too bad mine's capped. Although, not being a fixed line helps a lot.

    June 18, 2013 09:48:57 AM
    Makes me wish that I could have had a fixed line connection.

    Oh well, maybe in a year, after my contract with the landlord ends. I'm considering renting an entire apartment unit or house outright so that I can do pretty much everything. Unlimited fixed Internet, home-cooked meals, TV and home entertainment options, setting own rules...

    Expensive, though, without someone else also living together and doing it at the same time.

  62. Twiggy
    February 28, 2013 08:23:31 PM
    The internal connectors are quite fickle in my opinion. If it's a desktop (it probably is), check and see whether anything is loose or disconnected right behind the front panel.

    Hmm, Shade...

    The new pair of ear buds I have remind me of the Sony buds a lot
  66. Twiggy
    February 16, 2013 12:14:51 AM
    Funny how neither of my main cameras have a 4:3 sensor. My NEX-5R is 3:2 (APS-C), while my Lumia 900 is 10:7.

    The fact that the 900 uses a 10:7 sensor means that you can actually end up with a wider FOV when using 16:9 instead of 4:3 (the default).

    1080p videos at 60 FPS strangely feels like a video game

    I don't think it'll be 9.9 and the WEI scale seems to be exponential.
  72. Twiggy
    February 5, 2013 05:05:22 AM
    Speaking of WEI...

    *wonders what's the monster gaming rig that's required to get a score of 9.9/9.9/9.9/9.9/whatever, and what kind of disk setup is required to 9.9 the disk*

    (Windows 8 raised the cap by 2 points)
  73. Twiggy
    February 5, 2013 12:01:49 AM
    Actually, as long as you're satisfied by the computer's boot times, a 5.9 is pretty much perfect.
  74. Twiggy
    February 4, 2013 08:12:46 PM
    My bottleneck is the hard disk and the desktop mode graphics (the 630M) won't run under normal circumstances.

    *updates his phone to 7.8*

    Something's odd with the roll-out. It's like carriers and OEMs have minimal influence. Then again, I'm using a Nokia, and they "FIRST"'d.

    Aaaand Intel excels at...

    nothing. Anything is better than Intel to be honest - even a low end dedicated will do wonders with the CPU's power consumption, and the entire system, too.

    I guess you could say that I dodged a bullet there with the 630M instead of the 7670M - I don't want stuttering, and I don't get any of that
  83. Twiggy

    January 21, 2013 09:42:25 AM
    *hears fan noise on his laptop even with headphone on*

    Still better than a proper gaming rig, though. Now that's NOISY!

    That said, I hate FXAA. It's like... a blurry mess.

    Funny thing, my 9800 GTX+ was a non-standard design - it's a single-slot configuration.
  85. Twiggy
    January 21, 2013 09:01:12 AM
    I guess we all think alike xD

    One thing I know is that going from Intel graphics to a 630M sure made the difference between "unplayable at low settings" to "30FPS+ at high".

    Also, I just tested Darksiders on my laptop. No settings beside V-Sync? No problem, I can play it fine at native resolution @ 30 FPS+ anyway. Goes to show how you can pick any mainstream laptop and get away with it if it has dedicated...

    Let's hope I can run Metro 2033 at low, at the very least.

    Go with it - it surely can push much, much more than the 630M I have (that's good for 720p gaming) - yours should be able to handle almost everything at 1080p, so 1600x900 should be easy.
  86. Twiggy
    January 21, 2013 06:34:02 AM
    So what brand, then? The last dedicated card I had was a Gigabyte. GeForce 9800 GTX+ and that lasted very long. I think the GPU is still working, and it only needs a new motherboard to live within. Then again, I have only three PCs with a discrete, add-on GPU...

    Are you planning to spend around $300? I like NVIDIA because of their drivers. That's what made me chose the 630M instead of 7670M, because, oh god, I don't want to bother with the mess that is Catalyst. Catalyst is still much, much better than Intel CP, though.
  87. Twiggy
    January 21, 2013 02:06:47 AM

    Wow, sixteen tiers higher! That would be an insane performance increase.

    Fun fact: the 520 is slower than the latest Intel integrated in DirectX. So... Yeah.
  88. Twiggy
    January 20, 2013 11:10:45 AM
    Speaking of the GTX 660, target resolution?
  89. Twiggy
    January 18, 2013 07:04:44 AM
    Then again, AM2 is dead-ended, so he's going to pretty much need a new CPU, motherboard, and RAM anyway. The Fusion's GPU solution is freaking nice.

    Right now, if he wants to get real gaming on a comfy couch, it's going to be the A10 and a good motherboard for $200 or wait.

    You know, it's hard to suggest things when you know that your budget's very limited and the upgrader's video encoding tasks are on the CPU.

    "Facebook" problems with Cat, huh? I know some people don't like it, but the fact is everyone else likes it, so I guess I will have to make do with the fact that it exists. Truth to be told, I didn't really have the intention to use it anyway.

    The link below is a roundabout way :3

    It's a bit annoying when you can't get around to certain stuff. But we do have to live with it, huh?

    When you think about it, novie tickets seem to be real expensive these days.
