    What Windows Tablet Should I buy?

    Well for a Windows tablet at those specs you really dont have too many options (unless you lower the res to 720p range) other than a Surface Pro...either used/refurbed if you can find it..or with the price drop get new. The Atom CPUs are in lower rest tablets....

    New to Halo series...

    I liked ODST as that made you play a different role. Seeing things from fresh preservative. I remember my first hunter fight...before as Master Chief not a big deal....but now..check your ammo, check your heath and plan the fight :P

    Google to Buy Motorola Mobility for $12.5B

    Actually Moto was first out of the gate with a "andriod" tablet and I thought the first Driod had something else that was new at the time thanks to a "deal' between Moto and Google. So I dont think the other cell phone makers have anything really to worry about. Google knows it needs them to...

    what is your favorite first person shooter and why

    For me here is my list: Quak2 (as this was my first game I really played and played the MP) Unreal (first time I saw this running in gluide was amazing, the colors, the shinny reflections in Na'lia castle...) UT99/2004 (loved them both and was lead coder on the chaos mods for unreal) SS:FE...

    Official Crysis 2 Thread

    So let me ask this and excuse me if I did not see it as the thread is over 20 pages long, but would you do the same thing, go for the high cash cow that the console market offers? Since this is Hard I am betting most of you will say no which is a very acceptable answer. And I dont blame you...

    Thinking of making the move to 360

    Hey F8 I was in the same boat when the xbox360 came out. I like you had been a long time gamer. I even went further and had been working on the Chaos team and help on the Q2 and UT/UT2k4 mods for that team. But I also got tired of having to tinker with the PC to play a game. As well as the BS...

    Benchmark Wars

    Yea but give the track record of both its not a stretch to see NV or AMD for that matter being less than honest. I mean this is not the first time this has happened... Besides this is another reason I gave up on PC gaming. To much drama and BS. Much easier to relax on the couch after a long...

    Dell Streak... almost... almost...

    Got my streak last week and like any self respecting HardOCP'er I rooted it and flashed it with the 2.1 beta. I too have a few minor issues like wifi not shutting off (so I have to turn off the phone twice at night). Could be the results of mixing Beta 2.1 UK OS on a US Streak I am thinking...

    Dell Streak... almost... almost...

    Well I took the plunge. After being on the Iphone since it launched I figured it was time for an upgrade. I was able to re-sign wit AT&T for another 2 years and apply a 15% off Dell coupon to bring the out of pocket expenses to $230 ish including 2 day shipping. I was also able to grandfather in...

    PS3 officially sells over 3 million more consoles than 360 worldwide in last 12 month

    Dont forget that lost is on the entire entertainment division including Zune and other things. Not saying xbox360 was not the biggest contributor to that value (as they were) just they were not the only one....

    NVIDIA Fermi - GTX 470 - GTX 480 - GTX 480 SLI Review @ [H]

    Wow late to the party. After seeing so much on the rumor mill I this is more or less what I was expecting. Faster in a few cases, slower in others but with more cost (money, heat, power). I also think we will see more of Fermi as NV gets some tweaks in their re spins and/or next version of...

    Fermi GTX480 is broken and unfixable

    Well this thread has been interesting. I think the way to handle Charlie is with any rumor site, you take what he has to say..mull it over then see what makes sense (like one say we new a very large chip was going to be tough to make and run hot). Check to see if you have other independent...
