Penti-chan

Indeed -w-

I've never gotten that logo ........ is that deer illuminated by the light of Christ to go forth and get people hammered?

@Bella: ...that is the single greatest quote ever xD

That's a nice case.

@Pent: lol, thanks.

srsly, that was fucking brilliant.

and see, it's actually spurning on the noble stag to gather the blood of christians to act as the noble nectar used to brew the most sacred of liquors.

also, i may have some more stats on the laptops later. however, if the powerbook sells, the thinkpad won't.

Chocofreak13

it would seem that the thinkpad is less for sale than i thought. but the powerbook still is, and here are the specs:

the case is immaculate (no peeling, one minor dent smaller than a pebble in the top being the only issue), the screen is fine (no scratching), and little to no otherwise wear and tear (this was somebody's baby at some point...).

Ahh

So, 2k is scaring me; yesterday I had Flash player randomly crash when I tried to let an episode of Nostalgia Critic load out (Which is unusual for 2k), and this morning when I started up, Windows was half-functional (Like, everything that loads at start-up was working, but I couldn't get anything else to start). I'm worried that her main drive might be on its way out, which wouldn't surprise me (The drive is nearly 8 years old and IDK how heavily it was used before it ended up in my hands), but still annoying; as I have to reinstall everything ;_;

Chocofreak13

you got 8 solid years out of that drive. that's longer than i've had a laptop.

Claire brought up an interesting point today when we were on the subject of jailbreaking. she has a theory that, should she plug my old drive into the thinkpad, it'll work properly. she went on to elabourate that since we didn't notice any mechanical issues (such as the clicking and creaking of this one), just software, and that Loly's been through 4 hard drives in the 2 and a half years she's been alive, it may be Loly, not the drives........while this sucks balls, it's also a good thing, as we can get me into a functioning computer again while Claire figures out what the hell is causing Loly to suck the life out of hard drives faster than a Succubus on a Frat Boy. also means that i can jailbreak GT to get some interesting new features, such as the VLC app and possibly a Siri Clone (maybe with a male voice ^^ ).

Well, I've only had the drive in my possession for 4 years (Was included in TARDIS; 2k's predecessor), but when I looked it up on Dell, it showed it was assembled in 2006

i'm doubleposting because i want people to see this:

the Powerbook i mentioned earlier is still up for sale, and the processor has been upgraded from a 500mhz to a 667mhz. Kriz, if i remember right, you were interested in buying it, but at this point any and all takers are welcome, Claire really wants to sell this (since she reeeeally wants to keep the Thinkpad).

DEAR MAC PEOPLE (Kriz), what do you think of this computer?

Still mulling over getting a used Mac Pro but I'm not really sure where to start.

However I'm pretty sure I'd favor fewer cores with more processor speed over more cores and less speed since I'm less interested in parallel processing than I am in sheer power.

Penti-chan

More cores with less power is better than less cores with more power, though; for instance, a quad-core 2Ghz is better than a dual-core 1.5Ghz (As you have a combined total of 8Ghz on the quad vs. 3Ghz on the dual) :\
