    Gigabyte DS3 and eSATA

    I use it on a daily basis and wanted one that was professional looking and solid. Notice no rainbow colored LED's or spotty manufacturer homepage. I plan on keeping this enclosure for quite a while and it comes down to personal taste and you usually get what you pay for. No auto-on or off.

    Gigabyte DS3 and eSATA

    IcyDock Expensive but very nice build quality. Left a Seagate 7200.10 in it for days and barely feel any heat using the retractable feet. They also have cool enclosures for multiple drive bays. The housing for the hard drives...

    What is the ultimate midweight (4-6lb) laptop?

    T43p. It does have the Atheros MiniPCI, even the AR5212 chipset (I think) I just bought a laptop of that formfactor. Not everyone wants to carry around a desktop replacement and 4-6LBS is hardly noticeable.

    Need some advice on laptop accessories (wireless and external hard drive)

    For the hard drive, check out enclosures at Newegg. I just bought a laptop and wanted a second drive for space. I have an enclosure but also bought a modular "case" that holds my extra hard drive and replaces my cdrom. I have a great and easy dual boot environment or just extra space. I...

    ACER apsire 1681?

    Video Conferencing units?

    We use an MGC50 Bridge with a mix of Polycom Viewstations and Tandberge 6000's. Tandberg by far the more quality equipment. All IP, but we have a channelized DS3 that provides full private T1's to each office :)

    Got a new server running, need ideas

    Start with learning about Terminal Services/Remote Desktop Protocol so you can administer the box remotely. To access the console session via RDP use "mstsc /console" Start_Run_"mstsc /console"

    CompUSA PNY 6800nu $200 AR is back

    I got in on this deal BF late in the day at the Compusa in Atlanta (buckhead/lenox). Probably get in on it again. Rich area's don't need the good deals i guess. Also, my pny is all softmodded with pipes and shaders.

    is it worth running dual lcds

    I have the Dell 2001 and a 17' inch proview lcd as secondary. WIth Ultramon, you can configure them however you want. Having the extra space to slide windows to another screen is extremely helpful to me. Also, I have the second monitor connected to a KVM so I can switch to other computers...

    PNY 6800 Longevity

    I was worried about the same thing and almost returned mine for the BFG at BB deal. But mine overclocked easily and seems solid. PNY has a year warranty and my credit card adds a year onto it so I feel that I'm covered for a card slightly over $200. Just from browsing posts (here and...

    RealVNC EE, $50 per seat please?

    I stumbled across this: Granted, I like the features and they are needed for corp. installs, but is this the best way to make money? and how does this impact its GNU license. Plus, the licenses are $50 per seat.

    buying a new pc - need feedback for my $2000-4000 system selections

    I agree. But, you said highend. I'd rather spend the money for a small capacity 15K scsi HD than $800 for only a gig of super highend RAM also :). SCSI can obtain a faster transfer rates and quicker seek times. I can't find the review or remember which vendor, but the next generation of SCSI...
