Macs, are they really THAT bad?

I've been noticing a whole bunch of FUD being spread around about Macs, as I see with Linux. For the record, I DO NOT own a mac, so don't be callin' me a mac fanboy.     So is your HP, Dell, Whatever you own, cause' guess what... they're ALL made in China , shocked much?   Are we talking Macbook Pro? Mac pro? iMac? You might have a point there.   If you mean the Macbook Air, okay, Enlighten me, Find me an ultrabook ( Keyword: ULTRABOOK ) that has the exact same specs as the base M

Turn your laptop into an ultrabook-like machine!

Please note: this is NOT a tutorial on how to make your computer flatter, only faster.   Buy a 90GB+ SSD - Buy a 2.5" external hard drive enclosure if that laptop is your only computer.   Replace the hdd in your laptop with the new SSD. - Throw the hdd into the 2.5" external hard drive enclosure.   Transfer your current install from the hdd to the SSD   and Voilla, you converted your laptop to an ultrabook-like machine!

Why I hate win8/8.1

Thought I'd break up the chain!   Before Fanbois/FanGoils be all like: The hell you talking about!? Win8/8.1 is best OS EVAR!!11!1!1!one!!!!!   Let me just say this right now I don't exactly hate it, even though I say I do and have the title stating I do, I realize that even Windows 8/8.1 has a place as well, I'm just not their target audience.   The UI - This is a common dislike of the OS, and don't get me wrong, I can use it.. I just choose not to. So counter-intuitive to me, and I don'

Overclocking... is it Really worth it?

If you ask me, not really.   It's more of an epeen boost than anything imo.   Now, don't get me wrong, There are some benefits of Overclocking, but the increases vary quite a bit, and often times not enough to be worth it.   Before I jump in, I have 2 overclocked machines. an Intel core i5 2500k @ 4.6 GHz and an AMD 960T @ 4 Ghz. Do I need them overclocked? no I do not, I just choose to give them an overclock.   To start, These overclocks might be impressive... but they were not at all e

Why I like SSDs

I've noticed that many members here aren't really for SSDs for various reasons. While I'm probably not going to change opinions, thought I'd state why I like them.   The most obvious one is they do actually increase boot speed greatly. My Desktops and laptops boot up at around 15 seconds. Yes that's under linux with TRIM enabled, but even under Windows 7, boot speeds were better on an SSD than an hdd.   Along with the faster boot times, it makes the system feel overall snappy. Most of the

What z77 did during the power outage

-Attempted to fix a 1280x1024 monitor by replacing some capacitors on the monitor's PSU. it failed though. -unlocked all 6-cores in slackstation, overclocked it to 4Ghz, and installed slackware on it (hence the name Slackstation). -Drove around town in a car. -Installed Arch w/ i3 WM in my thinkpad. -used my mechanical keyboard during the whole time.   and that about concludes it...   btw... Mechanical keyboards or BUST!
