I actually have one - one of the first V2 editions with USB as well.
Runs a treat, though not as fast as a dedicated RAID solution. But for domestic, maintenance free almost-redundant storage it's fine. Never crashed or missed a beat.
Though mine has decided to start running its fan on maximum for some reason after years of hassle-free running. And one of the drives can vibrate a bit - nothing a paper wedge couldnt fix.
Fantastic. Don't call us...we'll call you.
Re: Can Anna Leach
A thought occurs...can you QED your own posts?
Lucky you - most modern Ferraris just catch fire.
100,000 units pm?
Unless this is a '90%+-el-reg-scoring' stunner of a laptop, I foresee more inventory problems for Acer in the near future.

Not even the cleavage shots could save this one.
Enough with the pet projects - get back to coding HL3!
Never mind the corners...
...check out the letterbox aspect ratio for supposedly better movie viewing.
(Idle daydream after a 3 pint lunch: Is it just me, or so the movie makers seem to insist on shooting in formats which require black bars top and bottom, regardless of the prevalent technology? As the TV's catch up, the format changes again. Soon, we will be watching movies that require displays that have aspect ratios of 50:1)
Money for nothing...
..especially since these 'products' appear to have done little to elevate either team above 'back marker' status...
Caveat: I secretly want Caterham to actually do ok.
...so what 4G networks *can* the damned thing hook up to ??? Doesn't work here, doesn't work down under, doesn't work in most of the EU...
I know it's not a big issue given there is no price premium and 3G still works ok, but wouldnt you want to use 4G if your device was capable of it?
Holy crap, that makes me a veritable mercury-based shrapnel grenade. In Space.
Wasn't quite expecting to be able to say this phrase as early as 2012...and by a tablet of all things.
I cycle to my IT desk job 3x a week.
So as well as spending 40 hours a week at a desk, I spend an additional 9 hours perched on the most uncomfortable seat on Earth, while my HR sits at 170+ bpm for at least a quarter of those.
Am I doomed?
"We're pleased that Ofcom saw less than half as many complaints about our broadband service than this time last year."
We hid half the complaints through ignorance, recatagorisation and outright deletion of call logs.
Bear in mind, the whole reason the iPad 3 is the resolution it is, was to make application compatibility possible without significant re-write.
A new screen would mean a new resolution, so for this reason I vote this "rumour" as:
What some people forget
...is that this is stress test warm. 90% of usage will be browsing, video etc and temps will barely register. An hour of video games should see it run 'warm', but hardly scolding.
Ad you want hot? Try an hour 3G browsing on an iPhone 3G. I used it as a pocket warmer back in January...
Re: Just another example of Apple's amazing attention to detail
You are, of course, correct. But your extremities regularly run at much lower temps than the standard 37'c, which may make the heat perceptible. You're not a uniform temperature (though warm-blooded biology tries to beat physicals where it can here).
Re: iPad 2.5 or 3
So...a new screen, a new processor, a new battery, a new telecoms chip and a new case only constitute a dot release to you?
Re: I love the new ipad!
You can bet they already have - I suspect they're holding off until windows runs on ARM; while LINUX probably works fine, they know their target audience want windows.
Re: It's just an Ipad true
Apples version cycle is no better or worse than the android manufacturers.
Personally, I'm waiting to hear whether the rumors are true - that the a5x is faster than T3.
Don't worry - A trip down the docks will help you "complete the beef curtain level". For a small fee.
Re: Fandroid radar kaput?
Ah wait - its not broken. Just picked up a massive cluster of them waiting to hijack the pending iPad 3 article comments...
Fandroid radar kaput?
4 posts and no mouth frothage or vindictive downvoting yet? Is my radar not working?
Thats because all it is is:
10 DELETE timemachine.prefs
20 WRITE "line 2000: COL 200 [;"]"
30 RESTART SERVICE: TIMEMACHINE
40 PRINT "Apple has added the following 12 pages of addendums to your privacy terms and conditions...."
Caveat 1: Poor BASIC scripting part of the joke
Caveat 2: I like my apple
Re: 6m gap?
Not if I can get in there first!
Re: This review missed most of the problems actual ownders have reported.
I see the same 'reduced/poor quality' issues with our recent Lenovo laptops. Keys falling off, random reboots, creaky cases, rubber pointer failures etc.
Come back IBM, all is forgiven!
What??? There were planes in that movie??? I only got as far as the bikini...
..but not included in the price is the monster (ideally dual) GPU setup you need to upgrade to, to get all the eye candy.
My brain just exploded.
Re: Not for the squeamish
Question is though...how can you tell what type of lawyer this is? Given its veracity and fecal colour, this one has to be a patent lawyer.
Re: It's all a bit moot, anyway
You forget that most big corps have enterprise licenses, which only support certain versions of windows and MS will OOL certain versions (eg XP). There is some flexibility there if you please nicely with MS (or threaten to leave them), but at some point MS will force them to upgrade purely to stay within license and support agreements.
Don't beat about the bush Linus. Tell us *really* they should do.
Notes to self: must use "just kill yourself" as a suitable answer to more luser support calls.
Re: Teach how to think
The problem with teaching people how to think is that it only teaches the same approach to solve problems so the solutions (if any can be found) tend to look the same - for better or for worse.
What we really need is to cultivate innovation and lateral thinking, so we find new ways to solve problems.
+1 on your sentiment though.
...ok, how many buttons, knobs and dials are there? It's like the bloody space shuttle in there.
And do you *really* need all of these to drive a car?

A thought occurs...can you still cry with both eyes gouged out?

Re: Anonymous because this wont be popular, but...
+1, but PB did take the one liners a wee bit too far...need I remind anyone of the cringeable "I thought xmas only came once a year?"

Don't forget the ID'ers and Creationists.
20 million mph!
That's almost as fast as a London courier...
Analysing buckyballs 6,500 light years from Earth. How f*ing cool is that.
Then again, they're less than £200 now, aren't they? Hmm. Maybe.
Re: New Computamabobs...
Your Dell lasted 5 years??? You sure it's a Dell?
Well, there'd be 2 reasons to increase the prices:
- they're a bit skint these days, so extra margin might be useful. And this "niche" unit might do to the trick, as it's easier to markup.
- They see people like samsung whacking up the prices of tables and premium books to equal or greater than Apple, and getting away with it. Why not try it themselves?
Caveat: I actually quite look the look of this, even though it is a Dell. An i7 in a small form factor. If only it had DX11 and a smaller 11' screen, it would be right up there come the summer and my laptop gets replaced.
Re: Re: So in other words
+1 for Dan; given Google's tactics here, it's safe to say that "Do no evil" is truly dead and buried now.
@ Dan 55
..thing is, if privacy was important to you, would you trust a browser from Google now?
If they're exploiting 3rd party browsers in this way, what are they doing inside their own?
Re: Re: quick....(@ Arkasha)
Just as well I use neither IE or Safari.
Lets hope it's not Chrome...I'd say it's a foregone conclusion what Google do in their own browser...
