1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

Why are laptops so bling these days?

    This is one of the computers I saw in the store that I was referencing with regards to the transparent plastic. It's even more hideous in person.

    Yup, it's horrid looking. But was more than 50% less than what the sedate looking, comparably powered Dell was. The sound system in simply the best I have ever heard from a lap top. And since if I get 18 months out a laptop, I'm happy, it was a no-brainer. Plus, no interest for 18 months at Best Buy [​IMG] So as soon as I pay this off, with no interest, I'll go buy another laptop.

    Lenovo laptops are the best, but look like crap. I love a Lenovo for work.

    At home, I have a small Sony VIAO with carbon fiber case. It's pretty cool, but the thing overheats badly.


    Agreed. Lenovos rock. I used to have several Thinkpads as well and they held up very well.

    Thinkpad X300 is the best piece of computing equipment I have ever owned. I've been getting a bit bored of it but I can't find anything that matches up to its abilities. Between SSD, an adequate processor, thin & light design, 1400x900 in 13", two batteries for 6+ hours of life, 3 USB ports, a very rigid frame and a very comfortable keyboard, nothing on the market comes close in terms of well thought out and usable hardware.

    Well maybe the X301 is better :'(

    I have one that's been abused terribly but it keeps on going. Great machine.
