Same issue as laid out above.
Late 2013 rMBP with Nvidia 750m discrete graphics.
Swapped out DisplayPort cable for a higher quality mini-DP to full-size DP, issue still happens. No rhyme or reason. Occurs every couple of days.
Been looking for a solution myself.
Low power consumption, low cost, flexible, and they provide the performance numbers right up front to see if it is the right fit for you.
Picked up 4 for new office workstation with a hardware RAID-5 solution. Might not be as fast as an SSD, but overall storage, reliability, and redundancy beats out every other SSD solution for the same money.
They're also ensuring that if they need to support/troubleshoot the equipment, that the drives are not part of the problem. It would be impossible for them to test every single solitary drive combination, so instead they lock it out. That said, I believe that every device should have an option...
Sounds to me like this is a small shop with high data storage needs, whether simply the result of anticipated retention, or because they have a hodge-podge setup now....and that they have a limited budget.
All told, I heartily agree with all of the posts here saying 'need more information'...
There aren't any 64-bit Atom CPU's either. Looks like the choice to use Windows Server 2008 R2 (a strictly 64-bit OS) as the foundation is going to pretty much eliminate the same system upgrade option all together.
Edit: Atom 330 supports 64 bit instructions.
I have four 146GB 15K SAS drives leftover from a server upgrade that could use a home in an enclosure for possible video editing or running VM's.
I found this SANS Digital Tower over on Newegg which looks like it fits the bill. Any other recommendations on enclosures?
I've been slowly pulling together the parts for a nice quiet home PC, and I while I'm a perfectionist at heart, I've had a little too much time to think about the assembly process (and not enough to actually do it!).
I picked up the Antec P182, plenty of space, designed for quiet. Here's a...
I've struggled over the years between wanting the horse-power of a full-desktop while on the go (speaking as an original Dell Inspiron XPS user), and the lightweight portability of a standard to sub-notebook. However, I'm finding more and more that the horsepower of a smaller notebook is...
ffmpegx It isn't perfect, but it gets the job done. Make sure you have the most recent version of Perian installed too.
VisualHub was a commercial solution that was previously touted, but has subsequently been phased out and gone open source, so keep an eye on it here...
I decided recently to take the plunge with Leopard server and I've taken advantage of an old PowerPC Mac Mini, upgrading the memory to meet the requirements, and swapping out the old hard drive for a SLC solid state drive, as well as removing the optical drive and dropping in 250GB IDE drive...
Easiest solution? Snag a second dynamic IP address from your ISP for a small additional sum each month (like $5), and throw a switch between your WAN and your existing router, add another cheap router.
Elegant? Not really...more cables, clutter, and additional overhead...however I'm not...
