nvidia claim kepler will be out at the end of the year,but they use tsmc fab plant and the kepler chips were supposed to be 28nm which tsmc havent quite got sorted yet,so its more likely 2012.

amd's 7000 series are slated for the end of this year,also on a 28nm fab..we will see!

well the laptop ram came out to £30 with shipping. the set i was looking at was some Kingston ram for probably £40-41 after postage. still not a bad buy tbh if you can wait 2weeks for it to get here.
£30 with shipping's pretty sweet! If he ships Monday, I'd look at the Monday to Wednesday after. I've got stuff shipped from the states and it's usually about 5-8 working days :)
Pretty much the same as shipping from China.

I cant wait to get my new netbook!! I will probably most likely do a review on it lol.

there are already quite a lot of reviews out there of the laptop playing crysis 1&2, SCII and L4D. not bad if you ask me, especially from a 11.2" netbook

I love rigs like that. Strange but I actually enjoy cleaning out tons of dust from a PC. Especially getting a PSU apart. Must be something to do with seeing something so dirty get back to new-looking.

I got dust masks and a decent gas mask so I'm not bothered about health problems :laugh:

Have you still got the lappy that you got the copper shim for?


EDIT: What on earth happened there? TPU fudged up for a sec I swear :wtf:

Sata 1, 2 and 3 messing up HDD, RAID controller and cables. Such a PITA. More precisely, Samsung Eco green 2tb 5400rpm does not like Sata 1 cables on Sata 3 RAID card.

Sure do.

I'll possibly be looking to get rid of it to get some of the money back. after ive tried the DM1 out and transfered all my files over.

Unfortunately I cant say that the laptop is in prestine condition, Its far from being in prestine condition.

One can only describe it as being extremely 'Knackerd'.

its an old warhorse thats had its days, but seriously needs to be retired.

It still runs and runs and runs however and thats why i love it. its still good for a few more years yet with some good TLC.

If youre interested in it, i'll keep you in mind. ive made a few upgrades to it which i plan to take off possibly but if the price is right. its all yours.

I'm not really into laptops, I was just wondering if you still had it. Cheers for the offer though :toast:

Good to hear that the new cooler is working out good Cheesy. I never knew lower temps meant you could lower the voltage or it that Cheesy talking rubbish again lol.

You are all making me want to buy new stuff you idiots!

maybe i'll stick it up on ebay.

Id be lucky to get £50 for it though. thing needs a new keyboard and they cost £32. new battery would probably be £40 for an original.

Football is so boring. Though I am involved in the fantasy football crap. It's a family thing.
