    ferrari 4000

    I am pretty sure this is the notebook I will be getting come September. The only thing I wish it would have is a SATA port, or a SATA port on the EzDock which connects via PCI express. Also too bad Seagates 160 7200rpm drives won't be out until 2006.

    Theoretical System specs... with a few gaps.

    I never really learned all about CAS timings, so is this CL2 or CL3? I am looking for 1BG or 2GB ECC Registered Dimms to run in a dual Opteron setup. Each CPU with 2 dimms. I would really like low latency ram.

    MySQL bytes per record

    I am trying to do some calculations as the amount of hard drive space I am going to need. Basically I am looking to create a 318,934 x 8 array. The IEEE Standard 754 is common to C compilers (so I read). The numbers are real numbers small enough to use the single data type which occupies 4...

    AMD Stock - How Much Money Have You Made

    You just got to hold on. I bought in 2002 at $10.74 and then the share price went all the way down to $3.50. I new AMD was a worth more than that so I didn't worry about it. If you look long term, you'll do fine, try to play it short and you better be good because its really easy to get screwed...

    nVida MXM Graphics

    I'll probably have to wait even longer for a Athlon 64 solution utilizing MXM technology. The nVidia nForce 4 chipset will have PCI-Express, I have no idea when it will make it into the mobile market though. Mikes Hardware nVidia CK8-04 (nForce4) chipset, for Athlon 64 processors, is...
