I think this is probably true of a lot of people.

This is one of the reasons I like navy pants. It's a chance to break out of a routine and also to think a bit more about a rig. Not that I am adventurous in the way I dress.

I think also that for some reason grey pant combos look slightly more formal than navy pant combos and people take comfort in that.

Perfect for Oli. He's been pestering me about Carmina lasts for months now.

Mate if I can just make 2 suggestions for maximum performance its 1) lots of RAM and 2) solid state hard drive

thanks man ^

 

I thought those were the main things...but I've been told processors, graphics cards and other stuff are important too in order for photoshop to run well?

 

The thing is, I'm not a graphic designer, I really only need photoshop to do mockup's of brochures/images for work.

 

My main use is word, excel, internet....

 

I'm thinking of just going with a laptop around the 600 dollar mark and forgetting about photoshop requirements...Especially as I'm not great with laptops/looking after them and also travel with them a lot.

I'm currently wanting one of these.

It's a tablet hybrid though and probably out of the price range you're looking at.

But, really, you're much much better off to state your price range and basic requirements (as to what you'll be doing with it e.g. games, just browsing/word processing, priorities in terms of screen size, battery life, weight and portability) on Whirlpool than on SF. The guys there have an encyclopaedic knowledge of this sort of thing:

I wear almost exclusively navy odd pants (never wear a jacket unless I'm attending a wedding, what am I 40?) and I've never seen an issue with that choice, or how it looks*.

 

 

*Note: LM thinks SW is cool, denim looks shocking with odd jackets, shirts other than ice blue, white and dove grey are frivilous, and anything that's not monochromatic is a lost opportunity for something better, so take that with a massive grain of salt.

I'm in a similar boat, the biggest thing for me is portability with a little bit of grunt. I'm using a Dell Latitude E7220 atm which is excellent.

 

Go for an i5 processor with around 8GB RAM and you should be fine. Photoshop will run with an on board graphics card fine for what you are trying to do. It's only when you start to do more advanced graphic manipulation like vectors etc that you see any benefit.

Sorry to disappoint you but the Dell Venue Pro is rubbish, I've had one sitting on my desk for the last month and am sadly very disappointed. I would suggest you go for the new Surface 2 or Lenovo Helix.

On what basis?

I'm looking at the 11, not the 8...

And mostly interested in it as a Hybrid, rather than tablet, with the keyboard/battery cover.

Every review I have read puts it above the Surface 2 Pro for that purpose....

Battery life and performance have just been very underwhelming.

 

Not as quick nor does it last as long as an iPad the argument for a Windows OS doesn't count for much when it's still slow. To be fair the device I have is a release to market for demo device but I certainly wouldn't be buying one based on my experience.

What have we here, an IT thread that's also interested in clothes..

Hmm, guys where can I get the best slim fit hoodie in Melbourne? Not sure whether to go MTM. If it has a Topy that would be great.

Well if you want a local Venue Pro 11 in the near future you are out of luck as they are on recall at the moment to fix a small issue.  I had an afternoon with one recently and they are pretty good but not as elegant or refined as the Surface Pro 2 imo and whilst the pen has improvemed from the woeful thing that came out at launch its still not up to a Wacom no matter how much users would like to believe it is.  That said still streets ahead of any capacitive stylus.

 

I don't think you can go wrong with either but my money is on the sp2, I was really impressed with how productive I was able to be with it on holidays and how handy it keeps coming in at work especially for removing paper from your life.

You can get Japanese-made Seiko watches online from reputable dealers in Singapore for between $100 to $150 very easily, new-in-box with papers. The Seiko SNK and SNZH ranges look very nice, are well made and durable.

 

or... *drumroll* vintage Grand Seiko on Yahoo Auctions JP. just have jesse streeter proxy it for you. they can be had for under a $1k and will go head to head with swiss manufacturers.
