    Macbooks 13.3 Pro vs 13.3 Air

    Yeah, that's what I'm hoping, that the 2015 models will be out before the summer.

    Macbooks 13.3 Pro vs 13.3 Air

    Cool, thank you for your input. I still have a few months before I need to get one, but I can't help but start shopping early. Hopefully prices will go down a bit by then.

    Macbooks 13.3 Pro vs 13.3 Air

    I imagine the newer models' batteries last longer, but how long ago did you notice your battery start to go?

    Macbooks 13.3 Pro vs 13.3 Air

    That is a bit unsettling, how old it is?

    Macbooks 13.3 Pro vs 13.3 Air

    I've thought about a used mac, but I was worried about battery life, but your Air's battery life is still good?

    Macbooks 13.3 Pro vs 13.3 Air

    So then probably wouldn't consider anything earlier than 2012? Seems like there is about a $200-$400 difference between the '12 pro and an equivalent new '14 pro. But these '12s are pretty much all used or "refurbished" And only about a $100-$200 difference between the '13 and '14 models. And...

    Macbooks 13.3 Pro vs 13.3 Air

    I'm looking into getting a laptop this summer if I'm able to get into an REU. I was looking at macbooks, just because they are reliable, have long battery life, and still has the power I need for programs like Mathematica or Sage, since it will be used for research, the computing will probably...

    How can i stream my console to my computer using just wifi

    Cracking the OS on the console is going to void your warranty, which you might need, when something you try to install on it bricks the system.

    Good affordable laptop for college student?

    Honestly I would go with the second on I linked over the first one. Its got a dedicated graphics card, which is a very low end card, its still better than integrated graphics. Which means 3d graphing on Mathematica should work better. And you'll be able to multitask a bit better with certain...

    Good affordable laptop for college student?

    I'm about to finish college, and I can honestly say that, school work aside, I've used my computer for atleast 90% of my entertainment. Understandably, a budget is a budget, but something like this would be great.. and is well worth the price...

    Good affordable laptop for college student?

    With that tight of a budget, a refurbished laptop is going to be the best you can do. Here's two that would be on the high end of your budget; the specs are great for the price: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834231575...

    What is your budget? Are you sure you're going to need to use Mathematica?

    How can i stream my console to my computer using just wifi

    What console are you using? XBox One and PS4 both have very similar capabilities built in without the need of a computer. You can save and upload videos to youtube straight from the aforementioned consoles. Outside of those two.. Computers don't generally have video inputs, so just using a...

    Petabyte storage?

    I'm reading about this "Hyper-CD", seems like there is some argument towards its actual existence. It seems obvious that if it were really what I'm reading it is, we'd all have one. So I'm inclined to think that it's not what it has been made out to be. Another thought, what about RAM? I'm...

    Petabyte storage?

    Right, like I mentioned, a 1TB SSD will cost nearly $1000, as opposed to a 1TB HDD @ about $75. Computing power right now isn't ready for data on the order of a Petabyte. I feel like we are still another storage medium break-through away from Petabytes.

    Petabyte storage?

    So, in the context of computing for the even avid techy, it seems like a Petabyte(1024 Terabytes) of storage on a single drive seems both out of reach, and unnecessary. I mean, on my computer, I've got 1080p (legal) downloads of movies, several very large games, and a comfortable amount of...
