    Thinking of MacBook to replace my Thinkpad

    the only problem i could see for you as a photographer is that it will be another year until adobe releases a version of photoshop that is intel native (although you can run photoshop emulated it just has a lot of problems). Other than that it should be just fine... ive always thought the...

    Can Macs run games yet?

    thats even funnier cause photoshop runs like balls on my macbook, that is of course assuming it doesnt crash on launch like it does about 70% of the time... way to go adobe you bloated sack of crap.

    FS or WS better? DVD

    are you serious? Dont dont dont watch full screen cropped movies its just awful, if its shot in 2.35:1 you are only seeing about 40% of the image and it just changes every bit of meaning. Even on a small tv its better to go with widescreen dvds. Ultimately the best idea would be to get a...

    Will The X-Fi Fatality & other models xram ever be used???

    creative tends to set the tone for future game audio so it wouldnt be supprising if games start to take advantage of it once it's had more saturation. Just my opinion but it seems to be the trend.

    2405FPW & Movies

    there are a number of fine french or english movies which are 16:10 those would be good to pickup. Otherwise yeah just deal with the bars cause they are very slender on most 16:9 movies, and of course 2.35:1 movies are always gonna have bars cause its just too damn wide. IMO you shouldnt...

    2405FPW, How long does it take Dell to ship?

    it seems like it mostly depends what they have in stock at the time, when i ordered mine it took a little while cause they had just come out more or less. Usually the shipping doesnt take too long, but when you are waiting for that thing to arive every second seems like forever. :p

    Why LCDs do not make great gaming monitors

    yeah i can see that i suppose, since my 2405fpw is at really low brightness, but i tend to get more eye strain from a display being too dim rather than it being too bright, everyones different i suppose :P

    Why LCDs do not make great gaming monitors

    well i agree, as has been stated that it all comes down to what you want from your monitor. I switched cause i could get a good deal on my 2405 and my crt was hurting my eyes (i was certainly running at 85hz). I work from home formatting documents for WASL stuff and when working for 10 hours...

    Why LCDs do not make great gaming monitors

    i replaced a 19" trinitron (dell) monitor with a 2405fpw and i notice dragging far more in film than in actual gameplay. As far as im concerned whats gonna make a difference in cs is how good you aim not how good your monitor is, the most blurring is going to cause is you to miss by maybe a...

    Battlefield 2 at full resolution on Dell 2405?

    im shocked that dice is still in buisiness... i mean really anyone recall when they turned the BF1942 patch development to that open source group and they started fixing all of dices horrible code... i mean really when they stop doing dev for that game it got a lot better.

    yeah im glad i purchased the 6600gt cause now i can not only display at native res but play all my games at native res with everything turned up pretty damn high... which is way better than playing at 800x600 with everything all the way off with the 5200.... what a sack of crap.

    Unofficial 2405FPW Thread (Now that its been announced)

    i had exactly the same problem and i think i posted about it a couple times. Anyways the 5200 doesnt seem to be able to drive it correctly at all and my solution in the end was to just get a new card (6600gt)
