    Laptop for college

    Anything more than a 14" laptop for college life is gonna be annoying. Trust me, don't go above 14". 15" can be tolerable, but ANYTHING more than 15 is plain and simply dumb.

    (sigh) No reason to go Nvidia...

    This. I honestly wonder how many of these people have ACTUALLY had problems, or if its just one person who has an issue, then someone posts about how someone had an issue, and then someone posts about those two people...And so on. Perhaps people just mess stuff up through idiocy?

    After hearing all of these problems with SSDs, I am glad I just stuck to my 6400AAKS. 30 second boot up, pretty quick apps...Don't need much more :p

    Need new monitor that supports disabled scaling @ 1280x1024

    Hey, all. As of right now, I am using a Dell 2407WFP AO3. In Windows 7 and Windows Vista, I am unable to play Warcraft 3 @ 1280x1024 with scaling disabled. Whenever I click "apply" for disabling scaling, it will simply default back to allowing my monitor to handle that. However, when I go...
