  1. Basically this ^ Problem is, 8 GB is not much space, and you never know what it'll put on there. You hope it's the OS, but it might not be, if you use some other file a lot, for example Personally, I don't like them and would just get a HDD, (+SSD for the OS of course) but it's up to you.
  2. Just think how much cash could be generated by converting it all to CAD now, and then riding it back up to parity when that finally happens some day.... ಠ_ಠ But yeah, that would be a lot
  3. Well, how much effort though... this would be a lot. Like, almost to the point of re-writing your own OS I think.

    00:46:13:WU00:FS01:0x21:Bad State detected... attempting to resume from last good checkpoint. Is your system overclocked?

    ಠ_ಠ No, it's not.  Maybe you should stop sending me defective WUs since my system is just fine thank you

      It'll be perfect for days, and then all of a sudden start giving all sorts of errors... I rebooted so we'll see if that fixes it ಠ_ಠ

  5. If that's all you're looking for, try to find a custom launcher for Android, there probably is one.
  6. moved to networking. And yes, but it won't be cheap.
  7. I don't know about you but my dedicated card is perfectly capable of running that extra screen
  8. Also, while very brief, this post technically satisfies the posting requirements. To all those too lazy to do it right, or think that it's too hard, take note
  9. I suspect that due to the currency falling what seems like ~ 1 year ago now, this is just getting the true cost of those apps back to where it was. It's not a real increase... until now the price paid, while the same in number, was actually lower in terms of total value.
  10. maybe that'll be it... they'll eventually drop iGPUs from k series chips but keep it on the rest. I think that would be ideal actually.
  11. I get what you're saying - the iGPU is cheaper than keeping another full GPU around - but this made me think of something else... Clearly Intel gets that people on the enthusiast platform are going to be using a dedicated GPU, but what does that say about the rest of their chips? Do they include them on CPUs they expect to be left alone? Surely they realize people are using i5/i7 *400 through *700 CPUs with dedicated GPUs for gaming... I wonder if we'll see them take iGPUs off everything but the i3s at some point... part of me hopes so but part of me hopes not as well...
  12. Not to mention you pay for that part of the chip too, even if you never use it...
  13. Those are good tips regardless, not an excuse to not update. That's like saying you're very careful about who you answer the door for, and so you leave it unlocked at all times.
  14. please, you certainly won't get marks against you just for disagreeing with a mod And it would be useful to know what you are worried about in case you're right
