    Why can't MacBook's have a proper keyboard?

    I have a netbook with a standard layout, and then my MacBook Pro. I can switch between them without thinking twice. It's really not that difficult.. you don't even think about it.

    Why is Ubuntu Satanist version being blacklisted?

    I love how people claim religious oppression to "satan" stuff but yet everyday there's religious oppression against Christianity - more so than anything other religion. 100% Double standard

    Fedora vs Ubuntu vs other? For desktop

    It's not that hard. It took me maybe 2-3 hours the first time I did it, and I learned more about Linux than I did the entire year before I had been using Ubuntu. It's not too hard, but it's not set and install, that's all

    Acer Aspire One D255E - choppy video playback

    You should check out MPC for your video playback. When I was running Windows on my netbook (now linux), i used MPC instead of VLC and it was much better. Try that. It might work, or might not

    Is a Ultraportable right for College??

    I say go with the Lenovo. They are good, sturdy, simple yet strong laptops. And like everyone has said, there will be no issues hooking it up to another monitor. =]

    Netbook Recommendations

    You can install Windows on that through a USB: You can only max at 2gb of ram because of the Atom processor. It's not the OS limitation, but rather the CPU.

    Sick of huge mouse pads!

    True story. Don't rant about other people's decisions. Some people like gaming at lower sensitivity. It shouldn't matter to you unless you're a control freak..

    Making the Most of a Cinema Display

    I wasn't a fan of virtual desktops (spaces) but it's come in handy. I have my mail and downloads on one, and then everything else on another. You should look into something like that. I just have a 15in mbp, but here is what my screen looks like (spaces view)...

    720p video + VLC = No ram

    I have a 2010 15in MacBook Pro. I've gotten into high def video finally. Last night I was watching Saw VII in HD (and other 720p/1080p movies lately) and I noticed it started to lag. I looked and I had like 27mb of ram left. I was about an hour into the movie. So, I restarted my PC thinking it...

    How to install downloaded programs on OSX?

    You want to drag 90% of applications into the "Applications" folder. That will then install them. Some are package files in which you will just double click and it will do it's think (Example: Virtual Box) Some installers have the Applications folder built into the installer so it does it all...

    decent netbook for nice price

    I would say to check in your area. Lots of people are getting rid of their netbooks. You should be able to get a nice one from $150 to $220 ish. I can say, you will love it. I have a netbook that I use with my 15in MacBook Pro and I still use the netbook a good amount.

    I would say the above, but with Arch. Gentoo is too steep to start with IMO. Arch is the good medium between Ubuntu/Mint and Gentoo

    Help me choose a graphics tablet

    I have a Bamboo too, and while it's small, it's pretty accurate and nice for the $60 a paid last year. Also, I'm going to school overseas (Korea) and I travel a lot, so having a smaller tablet is perfect for taking with me. I can use it on my MacbookPro and my netbook.

    After months of consideration, I'm getting an iMac 27"

    Then there's no need for you here. Bye bye OP, Go big! 8gb ram for sure. Get something that will last a while. If it was me, I'd go for the SSD too..
