thats all very well mate but when your car requires a garage to change the bulb because the silly bialys in france couldn't even design a bloody croissant let alone a light cluster and u don't have the money for the labour charge, sometime u have to drive around with just the one in till pay dy...
Well if my french P.O.S didn't need a garage and an hours labour to change the bulbs, nor had an appetite for a bulb a month, then i wouldn't have to drive round for one week plus on one bulb cause I'm waiting for pay day.......
deoends on what you want
i love a proper camera I.E dSLR because of the handling and i just generally like the format, however i can actually see why people like the NEX, which is essentially a wolf in sheeps clothing. My alpha a580 and this new c3 share the same sensor, so format aside there basically the same tool, just packaged differently. and in that respect, i suppose this is as much a " proper " camera as my dSLR.....
vista isnt ready
i must admit that there a definate fair few problems with vista. Im running Vista on my acer - its home premium and came as a free upgrade. i like its look and feel, and for use as a media center its very good, certainly looks good when my friends come round. Ive got vista ultimate on my dell laptop, and i tend to use that for more enthusisast tasks. one of the things that really makes vista a no go for me is that its useless at manageing files and folders on another machine, if i copy, paste, or delete from my vista rigs to my file server, everything seems to take an age, all it seems to do is say its calculating the time remaining. scandelouse.
i hate to say it, but the best m$ operating system that i have used is server 2k3x64 - solid as a rock, no real idiosyncrases, just relyable and gets the job done!
its not just apples
Ive got a DELL inspiron 9300 through a staff benefits program ( which the UK government cruley stopped them doing in the future - damn them! ).
The machine comes with a 3 year warrenty as part of the program. 18 months in and i get a pink line running down the screen panel - needless to say i wasent to impressed. Turns out this is VERY common with this dell line. damn glad i had the 3 year cover.
Moral of the story:
1) extra cover = good idea
2) every manufacture has issues - not just apple.
and before anyone says anything, im not an apple fanboi, i love to build my own PC's and a apple really did nothing for me, but now there x86 boxes and can have windows on them, im really rather tempted, as theye are very nice looking machines.....
@ By E
Im all for people expressing the opinions on forums - after all, thats what it is all about.
But your just damn rude matey,
why cant you justsay that you wouldent personally buy a warrenty. or that you wouldent personally re purchase from the same company.
But NO: you have to insult the man by calling him an idiot.
Well i wouldent personally behave in such away, beacuse i would consider my self a discrace if i did.
