    Yeah, it is becoming a bit stupid now though now

    i was thinking about buying this http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/...-category-id=7DC88DC46B8321F759F36448171B2BD2 , because it's insanely powerful for a little 11" laptop at that price, it has the I3 processor in it

    Has anyone noticed how slow steams going at the moment?

    I would rather wait until they release a X121e with an AMD E-450. that way you can get a little gaming in

    not too sure how well that HD3000 performs

    I think they already have, but the E-450 still isn't that great in gaming, and it's a lot less powerful, you'd be better of with the intel powered one and a cheap PSP

    There is an E-350 powered laptop in the room next to me, it can't even play DIRT 2 (Although that may be because it has only 1GB of ram, which i imagine is probably whats making it so slow at everything at the moment)

    Bingo - I have 8Gb RAM coupled with my E-350, so it dedicates about upto 3-4GB for it. Ive had a little time to test out my sisters newer HP DM1 with 4Gb ram installed and compared to my E-350, its quite a jump forward in terms of performance.

    the E-450 uses faster RAM and that boosts system performance in general. so should be quite a bit better when it comes to gaming the the E-350.

    there are a lot of videos on youtube where people have played games like Crysis, Crysis 2 and L4D1 on their DM1/DM1z and ION platform laptops. Sure the performance sucks, but the fact that the game is still playable despite sacrificing resolution still makes the E-350/E-450 good enough for casual gaming.

    I think I'll wait to see what they bring out next year in all honestly, mobile performance is getting good, but it's still not quite where i want it to be at the price range I'm looking at, that said if there are any particularly good deals in the run up to Christmas...

    I am sorely tempted by CPW's "offer" of SGSII £26/m, but I will have to eat rice and soy sauce daily if I want that :/

    Quality of some of the threads and posters (mods if I'm honest) in tpu has went downhill, not in here but in general. I quite enjoy generalnonsesne for it's randomness and freedom.

    No, I don't mind having that every so often, but if it becomes a regular fixture, the lack of meat will kill me.

    Don't be a stranger man, the UK clubhouse is fairly troll free so it's a good place to come and get away from all the numpties, and yea there has been an increase of flaming in TPU over the last year or so and I totally agree some of the mods do also partake to a degree and feed the trolls though on the most part I find having an opinion and being able to voice it in a matter that doesn't rise to the bait is a good deterrent. I am not afraid to say what I think and if anything think it has served me well with certain people and they are not so quick to troll me now as a well thought out come back that doesnt lead to you taking the bait and getting infracted is a much better way to deal with them. :rockout:

    P.S I fricken love this clubhouse, 12K+ posts and counting, keep it real UK TPU brethren :p

    Aria free next day delivery my arse, i ordered Friday night and the item is still processing. They use Shitty Link as the courier :(. Ordered a motherboard and there is a 2500k sitting in my desk drawer.

    The Ebuyer sale was pish, the site was overloaded and everything went rather fast. Cyber Monday and Black Friday here in the UK was disappointing for me.
