I can't believe they even have a x900 option. I would have thought, for that sort of money we would be getting x1440 or at least x1280
I am sick and tired of waiting for a 2003 screen on a 2012 laptop.

Well, I can't say - we have rules on social networking. But the client is worldwide, and the hell desks are in Manilla and Rajshahi
The thing that makes it doubly difficult, and reinforces the world-class stonewalling, is the refusal to use email. I have to telephone the idiots or put a message on a web page (that I can only get to via the company network)
The only thing that the staff there want to do is close the ticket. I've never had them make any attempt to fix a problem.
I thought the A team format was: improbable problem, client mysteriously ignores opportunity to go to police, catch phrase, team argues, catch phrase, lunatic expenditure of ammunition & explosives with no fatalities, team argue, more mindless wholly ineffectual violence, catch phrase, catch phrase, I wonder what the hell just happened.
If the programme material on TV were anywhere near as interesting as the things on the world wide wibble, then perhaps revenues would not be so vulnerable.
People aren't paying for the wires, or the method of transmission, they are paying for the content. If it ain't worth the money, they will stop paying.
If that price included:
a battery operated, wireless connected, external DVD drive (what happened to wireless USB?)
a wireless mouse (with an internal adaptor that does not take up a USB slot)
a wireless headset (ditto)
an ethernet adaptor
a screen with at least 1200 vertical pixels
and if the thing had built-in 3G connectivity, and could make VOIP and cellular calls with the aforementioned headset.
A few years ago I was in Slovakia, in temperatures of -20C with snow on the ground. They said it was a normal winter.
They have vinyards on the south-facing slopes, and make jolly nice wine. So the presence of Roman Vinyards says very little about the average temperature.
It may tell us something about average summer rainfall, though, grapes being very susceptible to mildew.
There is hardly a corner of this planet without perfectly-adapted life evolving into it. So how about above the clouds?
Back in the 50s & 60s there were reports of falls of a mysterious substance called Angel Hair, a phenomenon not recently reported. I've often wondered if diaphonous gas-bag creatures used to fill our skies, solar heated and so vast and light that the tiniest temperature difference would keep them afloat. And the era of jetliners ploughed through them and wiped them out before we knew they were there.
I deeply regret buying Dell.
When I placed the order for this machine I ticked the box for a magic sim with 3 months unlimited free internet. It did not appear on the confirmation. When, after 2 days, I got through to someone on the phone they said I hadn't ordered it - because it wasn't on the confirmation. Nor would they add it, as it was only available with the internet ordering system, not on the phone.
I placed, then cancelled, another order with a dead card. the magic sim wasn't on that one either. I decided they didn't exist, and that bait-and-lie was a new version of bait-and-switch.
Ah yes. Fractional
Speaking as a mathematician, since no-one has 3 legs [*] and a few have only 1, the average number of legs must be <2.
Therefore nearly everyone on the planet has more than the average number of legs.
[*] yes, yes. That's either Rolf Harris, or it's not a proper leg.
Well, maybe. Maybe tablets will outsell PCs. Thing is everton mints outsell Mercedes C-class saloons. Socks outsell underpants 2:1. You aren't comparing like with like.
in 0.5 billion office workers need a desktop PC this year, the fact that each of their children has an iThing, outnumbering the desktops by 2,5:1 does not mean that those 0.5 billion won't want a desktop to do their job next year. It's a class error.
M$ has become deluded into thinking the toys are an alternative, not an extra. If they concentrate all their efforts on the toys, the desktop will suffer.
Oh look. Already happening.
62 here & have owned 4:
A White painted wooden thing that Mrs H already had, VHF/UHF dual tuner, but colour
A Sony Trinitron that did Tellytext
A Phillips thing, CRT analogue/digital. OnDigital were supposed to write the code, but went bust first. After 4 years Phillips sent me a set-top box gratis, that my niece is still using.
A Samsung 32" LCD with LED backlight for the digital switchover. We had that 2 years early. 1080p, but not 3D, and I don't miss it.
