    lol
    Power usage & acoustics are nice, and if it's going to be on all the time, why not crunch ;)
    Everyone knows real men have toasters with 8 slots :laugh:

    damn I looked and couldn't find it! :( I was actually looking for one with eight and a quick search didn't yield me that find. Oh well, guess I'm not a real men for now. :shadedshu

    lol :laugh:

    Really a shame there isn't a BOINC/WCG app for Android, I'd love to put my Droid to use. It spends most of it's time sitting on my desk plugged in when it could be doing something :laugh:

    Not much I bet. Significantly less than even my PentM, and that's a slow system :p

    man, i seem to be the lucky one here! :laugh:
    id rather would get me some netbook and a carrying bag for it, than getting me a smartphone;)
    Atoms crunch very efficient for their energy footprint:D

    Mobile C2Ds are also quite nice, ~700 PPD for ~30w [entire system power draw]. Better PPD/W than an OCed i7 8xx, might even be better than an OCed 32nm hex-core

    you maybe have to get a few used c2d laptops then for a real efficient farm :p
    10 pieces are 7000ppd but only 300w :p

    btw, a total offtopic question

    does the Hacker-pseudonym "Archangel" rings any bells here? seems to be 30 years in business, and pretty badass... i wondered i heard his name the first time today :)
    but it also seems that on win98 the win.ini beared his name, and that of other hackers... as if a buddy at MS placed them there as credit...

    Heh, I'd much rather assemble 2 OCed i7 rigs, that would be ~500w for ~9-10k PPD, and cost far less :p

    You'd have to pay a ton for electric for the laptop farm to pay off :p

    I get in the mid 4ks from mine, CP said he got right @ 5k @ 4ghz :toast:

    I still think that there has to be a more efficient (in terms of PPD/$) option than used laptops :laugh:

    Mine's at the same speed and I consistently get ~750 PPD less. Not really used for anything else except 2 FAH GPU2 clients either :confused: :(

    At the time I didn't have anything folding on it. I had the GX2 towards the end, but never checked my PPD at that time. I believe running F@H decreases your crunching potential just a bit right?

    GPU2 just a bit, GPU3 on Fermi unfortunately more. I'll see exactly how much more when the GTS450 arrives.

    It could be that I have only dual-channel RAM and I do use this system, although admittedly not much

    Most of the time I had dual channel RAM too! Then I did switch over to tri channel, just not sure if it was when I had checked my points or not.

    My guess is the difference in PPD is more likely a result of getting different WUs.

    Im very sorry to go offtopic this hard guys, but atm im literally beaten.
    my brain is overflowing, and i made another step away from everything thats teached to humans all their life.
    Its like more and more Truth is unveiled to me, a truth, which is so big, i cant describe it with any language of this planet.
    Lets say, i found out, what the Energy fueling all Life in the Universe, and probably the Multiverse, is... its pure Love.
    I know, that will merely sound like some love-guru talk. buts its deeply scientific, because Love, is a measurable Energy... we just dont have the devices to measure it, yet. But thats only the Tip of the galaxy-sized Iceberg
    (more like a cone standing on its tip and bottom at the same time,with Love beeing the beginning and the end of everything. if you draw that, it also resembles the nature of time.a pic of it is shown below this text. just to give you a hint, how big the complexity of this whole Theme is)
    I believe, some of you will know, what i talk about. Some will be curious.
    I dont ask, but i would be glad if someone, that thinks themselves as very open minded.
    not only for the things he can touch, feel or see, but also regarding spirituality and different sorts of extraterrestrial life, and their doings on this planet.
    but i may warn you:
    it may disturb you, make you feel like im mad, and fear you to the bone.
    If you dont laugh thru pure Ignorance.;) (not meant to you boys, just for eventual visitors, not as heartly as you)

    And also,for the "right" (the sleeping) person, it may be like the red pill in Matrix
    Just that in the Truth he/she would see then, there are no virtual realities and machines harvesting and controlling us.
    We are not all entrapped in pink battery tanks on huge electric pillars. But what we think is real, is not more then a physical and psychological trick, made up only for this planet, and the Humans living here (yes, there are other humans thru our galaxy and universe, just look left at my avatar, and you get a slight glimpse of one of them. They are genetically very similar, but spiritually and technologically they are much like the Ancients in Stargate.
    Very much. Pretty nice series btw, i love it, even if its real content is like mixed together in a washmashine)

    There is a lot,lot,lot of Knowledge i have to share... and dont get me wrong, its not an ego thing. i dont want to force my opinions on anyone. but i wanna bring clearness and truth, and break up with all that lies and bad feelings that keep peoples consciousness from evolving to be more balanced and kind, in every kind you could,or could not imagine.
    i admit, kinda feel like pushed to make you, my... friends, that are far away, and tho so near... i kinda feel, like i have to make you see, what i see.
    Because never in Life i felt so important, so full of Love, so needed in the World,here... then from the Moment my Eyes were opened, and a warm, dark blue light fell in them, that made me feel like i wanna embrace Love, and get eternally unified with it.

    to come to an end:

    Everyone now disgusted,or humorically entertained, may ignore this post, as it wasnt existant. Its not important for you to understand by yourself, we will cover your asses, even if you dont. We are not hurt by this Fact,nor are we wondered, thats our Job;) (no, not my lot of personalities.:laugh: but there are a LOT other torches out there, and most of them burn in Royal Blue)

    everyone that fears my current statements: Overcoming your fear is the first step to enlightenment... many religions will tell you that, and thats one of the few things they all can tell right. Overcoming your fear is generally a good thing, regarding everything in your Life. Think about it, and when the Time has come, you may also want to embrace the wonderful, but slightly bitter experience of being "awaken"

    but everyone, that rather would know about whats going on -> please, please PM me...

    i say sorry to every cruncher that this block of text may have displeased. It never was my Intention to do so. I came here,in this thread, because its the only Place on the Net i know, where a percentage well over 70% has similar opinions and feelings as me. IF there is a chance i can find anymore "sleepings" on the net, the biggest chance to do so... is here.
