    I saw this laptop, and it's seems amazing for the price. I am thinking about getting it:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834220821

    Anyone have anything better for around the same price?
    Other than the fact that it's out of stock, I would say that's an AMAZING laptop for the price.
    Be aware of the battery life though

    Edited:

    And it also looked kinda bulky

    When I'm in-game and I use the Play/Pause button on my keyboard, It minimizes the game and brings up Windows Media Player. Is there anyway to stop it from minimizing my game?

    Edited:

    Also is there a way to dampen music automatically (specifically Windows Media Player) when someone talks in Ventrilo?

    Yeah, I got a Recertified G72GX off of Newegg for slightly less.
    The only problem is that you might get a lemon.

    However, the specs are incredible, as it has a goddamn 5870.

    Go buy it already, that's fucking cheap. Cheaper than an i3/5650/4GB in Denmark.

    Is an upgrade to 1920x1080 21.5 inch monitor from 1280x1024 19 inch monitor worth it?

    Anyone have icons for Starcraft 2 and Team Fortress 2 in the Token Light set? I was able to find an SC2 one in the dark version but that doesn't quite work for me.

    PC Specs:
    IIRC Windows will automatically launch Windows Media Player when you press one of the media buttons, but only if WMP is set as your default media player. Get something else like foobar or Winamp or something.

    Is it true that in order to take full advantage of 1024x1024 and above textures, you need a resolution of at least 1600x1200?

    I'm planning to get a 20 Inch LCD for Christmas, as this 1280x1024 one puts me to shame.
    I do see some aliasing (Lack of better word) on high resolution textures in certain games.

    I just have a quick question.

    I have 2 computers,

    Computer 1 is my main computer (Has no speakers)
    Computer 2 is my secondary computer at the other side of the room. (Is connected to a set of speakers)

    Is there i way i can output all sound generated on computer 1 on 2? , So i can hear the sound of computer 1 trough the speakers?

    I was hoping there is some sort of program for this, Both computers are connected to the same router. (Both Windows 7)

    Thanks in advance!

    Computer 2 is connected to my sound system. And I've only got 1 3,5mm jack > black/red cable. And the cable is not long enough to reach for computer one.

    Edited:

    Anyone?

    Honestly, the cheapest and easiest solution here would be:

    Buy a second, longer cable.

    Need help with a trivial subject.
    At School, no one actually uses them for work, so we usually just play flash games and shit.That was until a guy in my Year brought in the Battlefield 1942 demo. I fucking shit myself with nostalgia, i was playing it at lunch and someone came up and said. Is that COD (he pronounced it like the fish.). Rage.
    Anyway it our school techs blocked the handle, so we changed its name, we continued to play. Then they blocked the dll's, now we can't get it working again. Trivial situation, but any help?

    Try switching to the Codename: Eagle demo. It's BF1942 with zeppelins.

    You could make a thinstall of it. Its how I played my games back in school. There is also Softgrid from Microsoft, but I haven't seen an update in years.

    Not much, with BIOS updates it will run fine, just with DDR2.

    Em I'm a bit confused my BT connection is supposed to be 9-12 mb's if I were to be downloading a file would that be 12000Kbps or 1500Kbps, I'm a bit confused as with there are kilobites and megabits, all I'm aware of is I'm supposed to be getting 9-12mb.

    So would that mean that a download speed of 800kbps is 8mb or 0.8mb :S.

    Damn I think it's KB / Sec I'm getting confused about.

    It doesn't work like that. You won't loose any performance, but you won't be able to use DDR3 RAM.

    Okay, so I posted a question on Yahoo! Answers (I usually get all my help there, after looking through pages of Google search queries):
    Me posted:
    So after bricking my Netgear WPN824v2 due to a firmware upgrade fail, and after trying multiple hard resets and possibly everything I could find through Google, my only choice now is to find a new, good, and affordable router!

    I'm specifically looking for one that's best for sharing with multiple computers and good for (setting up) some Open NAT goodness for online gaming! I'd recommend something that is NOT Netgear, and under or a little over $200. I'm not too tech-savvy about anything hardware, but a user-friendly "router setup site" for the router would be nice too! I hope I'm not asking for too much, but if I need to ask for anything more, then just tell me and I'll be happy to budge!

    Thanks in advance!
    I'm not gonna carry on about what the "sci" dude said like I was planning on doing, so I'm just gonna go straight to the "recommend me an awesome router?" question.

    I have a old computer that I want to turn into Windows home server for storage, or as a secondary for web browsing / winXP nostalgia. The only problem I have is it connects to the wireless internet fine, but it will load the Google web page. After that, the internet refuses to work anymore.

    My uncle owned this computer; it worked fine for years. He thinks it might be a driver problem. I'm not so sure about it.

    I would say quite a bit. You may experience around 20FPS gain for games around the levels of L4D

    Just don't boot from the drive, don't run anything suspicious off of the drive, and ensure no partition have an autorun.ini on the root of each partition

    What's a Ricer?
    A person who makes unecessary modifications to their most often import car (hence the term "rice") to make it (mostly make it look) faster. The most common modifications are (but not limited to):

    - Huge exhaust that serves no purpose but to make the car louder
    - Large spoiler on the back that looks like something Boeing made for the 747
    - Lots of after-market company stickers they don't have parts from, but must be cool
    - Expensive rims that usually cost more than the car itself
    - Bodykit to make the car appear lower, usually accented with chicken wire
    - Clear tail lights and corner signals
    - A "performace intake"- a tube that feeds cold air to their engine usually located in areas of excessive heat (behind or on top of the engine)
    - Most of these riced cars (a.k.a. rice rockets or rice burners) are imports; Honda Civics, Accords, Integras, CRXs, RSXs, Del Sols Mitsubishi Eclipses, Lancers, Subaru Imprezas, however there are some domestics such as Chevrolet Caviliers, Dodge Neons, Ford Focus; small, slow, economy cars designed specifically to go slow. Please note that some Supras, Skylines, WRX's and other higher performance imports are designed to go fast, and are therfore not always considered rice. It really depends on the severity of the case.

    The "ricer" attempts to make their car "performance" by adding the modifications listed above. These ricers are not confined...
    Same applies with cases. Useless blue Neons with ultra custom (andhorrible cases, while having shitty parts inside)
