    any way i can connect my z-5300e's to my laptop?

    I'm getting a laptop with 2 audio inputs and 1 output, and I was wondering if there was any way I could use my z5300 speakers (currently on my desktop rig with an xfi xtrememusic) with this laptop. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Simple question re SSD maintenance

    for the configs I'm looking at for the m1330, its a $125 upgrade to the 128gb SSD. I'm strongly considering just buying a 60gb vertex for $200 because I'm really worried about system stuttering. Do you guys think that'll be a problem? If not, I'll probably just go with the drive dell gives...

    GSkill Falcon vs OCZ Vertex

    I understand these drives have the same controller so they probably have the same level of performance, but which one is the better buy? They're both at the same price point ($200 for 60gigs), but I can't find any review directly comparing them nor have I heard much about the gskill in general...

    Does input lag matter in this situation?

    I'm considering buying the Samsung T260HD because I need a tv and a monitor to hook my laptop up to in college. I'm not going to be gaming on this monitor, only using it as a screen for internet surfing, docs, email, etc. I'm aware of how much input lag sucks for gaming, but will it be annoying...

    Laptop 7200rpm vs SSD

    Oh and one more thing (2 actually): 1) the vertex definitely doesn't studder right? 2) Is there any worry about this drive lasting upwards of four or five years? (College) I see that the warranty is only for two years and I know MLC are apparently less reliable than SLC

    SageTV Channel Problem

    I just installed SageTV because the Cyberlink PowerCinema 4.0 software I've been using for the past few years just started crapping out. The problem is that it doesn't recognize any channels.
