    New system buuild for Photoshop and some gaming

    1) What will you be doing with this PC? Gaming? Photoshop? Web browsing? etc Lots of hi-res image scanning and manipulation. Frequently multiple images at once, along with multiple apps running simultaneously. I'm a multitasking whore. A half dozen or more Firefox windows open at the same...

    Libretto W100 vs iPad in pictures

    Just a thought: As long as one is considering the W100 price point, why not look at the Sony Vaio X? I have one and love the dang thing. 11" screen, 0.5" thick, 1.6 pounds. 128GB SSD, 2GB RAM, Win7, built-in 3G. Three battery options, two of which ship standard (S and X) - The tiny S battery...

    interested in eInk reader, need opinion from someone who has kindle/sony ereaders

    Just received a Kindle 2 yesterday. While it has its shortcomings with respect to native PDFs, it's a great device. I'm surprised that no one has pointed out that the Kindle is currently the only ereader that currently gives you any web browsing capability. Yes, it's primitive, but in...

    First time Wow Player - meh.

    Amen. As a WoW newbie (play casually a few hours a week) the discussion in game and on the WoW forums assumes that everyone participating is level 70 or higher, and if you're not you're worthless. It's assumed that you will spend every waking moment of your existence living and breathing WoW...

    Need Q9550 or i7-920 build recommendations

    *HOT* Dell 2407WFP for ~ $566

    Just got my 20% off coupon about 15 minutes ago. It all worked like a charm. $565.73 shipped. (The only downer was that I have a $50 Dell gift card, which unfortunately cannot be used with DPA.)

    Free 35% off Dell Coupon for Inspiron and Dimension

    Nuts, the ones posted over at TechBargains for today don't work on XPS... :( When looking at the coupons dor sale on Ebay, how do you know if they've valid on XPS? I'd hate to spring for one only to find out that it was unusable.

    Return of the eBay/PayPal coupons.

    Talk about B.S.! Over 900 Ebay feedback, send thousands of dollars through PayPal each month, and I don't get squat. :( Bastards.

    Dell Holiday Promotion

    WTF?? Damned verification won't work for me, and I've tried using all caps, no caps... Idiot programmers... probably shouldn't have outsourced the web development to India, huh.

    Help me pick between these two laptops

    What are the respective price points? It will be easier to make a recommendation between the two, as well as possibly provide other alternatives (I've assuming we're talking below $500 for each). -Dan
