Re: Nice i guess but
It also means I can go sit next to the Med for a few more weeks a year than if I just downed tools for a fortnight.
Gosh its a real problem keeping the blazing sun away from the screen. Where's the smug icon?
20% is within building tolerance
If performance translates to productivity, price premiums lose their sting.
The ability to play Portal with all bells & whistles is a total fringe benefit.
Stuff the battery life - fingers crossed for a decent screen size
From the photos, they look like 16:10 format. Anything less than 17"@1900X1200 is not good enough on it's own for pro use. The extra 20% vertical pixels make a world of difference. Plugging in a secondary monitor as a minimum requirement just defeats the purpose.
And might I say, it's about time too!
I wish Lenovo were still in this market. I'd love to update my 3yr old W700. Still, 3Ghz+8gb ram+raid 0 remains quite useful on the move, and nothing looks better to walk into a meeting with it, if only for the 'gosh thats a big one' double-entendre opportunities.

God bless you for that. I knew I couldn't be the only one.
Where will it end?
And what are they going to call Copper Nanotubes?

It looks like a certain sexual act.
Down with this sort of thing!

I listened to a bit of it the other day - it hasn't aged well. It's like the film Madagascar - it's all about that one song!
RE: Shatner version of 'Common People' is superb
It's not bad, but still messes up the timing on the line "..but she didn't..........understand" just like every other cover of that song. The forrins just always seem to miss the humour in that line, shame.
That said, Sir Shat woz aces on HIGNFY!
Rocketry isn't science
C'mon, c'mon....it's working!
My biggest gripe about XP & Win 7 x64 is no more podracing for me. Could not get it to work, NMWID.
There's a big hole in my life
Where my 22" CRT monitors used to sit.
I like the space, but I do miss the resolution. And they used to keep the room warm.
Saw it on the iPlayer a few weeks ago. It's gratest achievement was to give me an overriding desire to see the BBC version and i didn't rest until I had done so.
The film rushes through the whole story. The TV show lets it breathe and is hilarious as a result.
You'll need beer....
Re: Apples, Oranges, Pears & Lemons
"I suppose you buy your cables at BestBuy or something, right ? "
um....no they are generally supplied with the device. Especially when the device touts such a premium price tag.
Active cable? Sounds like a marketing decision more than a practical or useful one.
Do you enjoy being gouged? I guess so. As a Mac user you must be used to it. If this was a windows accessory it would be laughed out of the forum. 75%? GTFO
You're either a troll...
...or you have no soul.
Either way it rhymes.
To loosely quote the man himself:

Watch Delirious - there's a man trying to make a living. Funniest show 14yo me had ever seen
Watch Raw - there's a man who has made it - Meh
who would have thought it?
Thats why you buy two sets
LOL that's my birthday
is that you, darling?
Does it come with a Potato accessory, or do we have to use our own?

"not expensive enough" ????
Thanks for that. No, really. Thanks a lot.
Can i get a smaller one, say A0, that can pivot to horizontal?
I've been waiting 15 years for one of these.

"A loud clatter of gunk music flooded through the Heart of Gold cabin as Zaphod searched the sub-etha radio wave bands for news of himself. The machine was rather difficult to operate. For years radios had been operated by means of pressing buttons and turning dials; then as the technology became more sophisticated the controls were made touch-sensitive--you merely had to brush the panels with your fingers; now all you had to do was wave your hand in the general direction of the components and hope. It saved a lot of muscular expenditure, of course, but meant that you had to sit infuriatingly still if you wanted to keep listening to the same program.
Zaphod waved a hand and the channel switched again."
sucks less balls than itunes
I've paid the $20 or whatever years and years ago and, apart from a few video codecs that it only pretends it knows what to do with, it has stood the test of time for me at least. Excellent media library, converts files, rips to FLAC & mp3, ipod support, etc. not to mention the most consistantly trippy plug-ins.
Cold boot windows, right click a folder in explorer, play in Winamp: >7k tunes load and play in seconds. Try that with itunes or WMP. It can even make a half-decent go at randomising a playlist instead of just the lame 'shuffle' play option. (all are lame IMO if you have 'too many' tunes)
PS: Anyone that installs anything by fast-clicking next next next deserves everything they get.
...just wrong and wrong, then?
"...a huge post-production house with a 65,000-square-foot HQ in Mumbai, India. "They have thousands of people there, mapping out objects and projecting them onto models converting 2D to 3D."
<sarcasm> And I'm sure they have licensed copies of every piece of software in use.
Plenty of CAD warehouses in Asia have 'hundreds' of CADmonkeys on tap. "need more? no problem!" At only £3000-£5000 a seat. Where did all my work go?

Ah - the paper free office,,,,
When an ipad can display an A0 (16 x A4) page at 1:1, and survive 6 months at the sharp end of a building site, I'll buy one. Probably 2, as the first one would get nicked as soon as your back was turned. Until then, paper and blu-tac get the job done.
Paper isn't broken, and has yet to completely replace vellum.
will it make my autocads faster?

"...do me the courtesy of providing it to me in a form in which I can make use of it."
Also, one file showing the entire country with enough detail to be useful is likely to be unreasonably large and not play nice on something like an iPad.
Re: "...were it say Microsoft, users ....would scream blue murder."
That's b/c Windows and the work produced on that platform is more important and relevant to more businesses & users

What BBC were you watching?
I was up till the wee small hours last night listening to a constant stream of harrowing live reports from Clapham, Ealing, Croydon, etc. on the BBC.
I'm out of the country, reliant on a crappy 3G dongle for my access. Sky is not an option b/c of all the bandwidth-hogging ads.
BTW, where the fuck were you? It's not as if there's no IT angle on this (Blackberry, google maps etc.) but all you seem able to do is suck up to News Corp's agenda......from a VERY safe distance, I might add.
And I agree with the critisism of Mark Stone - getting beaten up for the sake of a news story is not original (Cook Report) , but it is doubtless lucrative.
This item has proved one thing beyond a shadow of a doubt:
