  1. Thanks! I'm not too sure, but I think it's Sweden and then Denmark.
  2. I went snowboarding at Heavenly Mountain Resort in South Lake Tahoe last weekend and took this picture. I thought it made a nice wallpaper. 1680 x 1050
  3. I would go with the G.SKILL just because it's the cheapest and I've never had a problem with mine. There's a lifetime warranty even if you have problems.
  4. Yes, slipstream your CD. Go to newegg.com and look at the most reviewed RAM. I have G.SKILL in my MacBook.
  5. I too suggest the MacBook Pro, but I think you're going to get some biases here considering this is a Mac based forum. If you really want a Mac, you need to put aside the fact that you can get a equally configured PC for cheaper. You need to ask yourself although you can get a better PC for the same price as a Mac, will you really be needing the extra power? It's no question that Macs cost a little extra, but you get what you pay for. They are very nice machines. OSX can read NTFS, but it will not be able to write to it. You'll need to format your drive to FAT32 if you want both OSs to
  6. On the main page, the link to the forums on the sidebar leads to the wiki. You might want to fix that.
  7. There isn't a Magic GarageBand icon. Magic GarageBand is part of GarageBand, it's not a separate program.
  8. GParted. You can burn it to a bootable disk.
  9. Ttry looking at the program CPU-Z. It should identify it.
  10. I don't know about a proxy, but OSX and XP can already connect to the net at the same time.
  11. You're getting ripped off. I got 2 GB for like $150 shipped from Newegg.com. I got the G.SKILL RAM, it's reliable.
  12. There is a bigger difference going from 512 MB to 1 GB than there is with 1 GB to 2 GB. I don't think things will really be faster, but you'll be able to do more at the same time and have more apps open simultaneously without any slowdowns with 2 GB.
  13. Yeah I use Parallels, I used to have XP on it, but I have Vista now. It really shines when you have a lot of RAM. I used to have 512, but upgraded my MacBook to 2GB and it flies now. I can switch between Parallels and a Mac app open at the same time with lo lag at all! You should upgrade.
  14. Congrats. I'm still waiting a bit more for the price to drop before I buy some RAM.
  15. Hi everyone, I'm thinking about getting a 20" Dell 2007WFP. New ones go for $399, but Dell also sells refurbished ones for $289. I'm wondering if the refurbished ones are any good. Do they have problems such as backlight bleeding, dead pixels, etc.? Are they always the latest firmware? Anyone here bought a Dell refurbished monitor before? Thanks
  16. I think it should be fine. If you're skeptical, for $3 more you could get the G.SKILL from Newegg, which is a well-known brand.
  17. If you can't get it to work with the iMac's display but still want HD, you could buy a LCD monitor and a HDMI to DVI cable and it would work fine (HDMI is just DVI with audio). For the audio, you could use the digital out optical and hook it up to a receiver or PC speakers with an adapter. Try to buy a monitor that supports HDCP. Games should not be affected by HDCP, but movies in the future may. If your monitor doesn't have HDCP, movie playback will be limited and not in full HD. You would have to get a large monitor that supports a resolution of at least 1920 x 1080 if you want full 108
  18. I would describe it as more of a rolling effect. You can achieve a similar effect with Stardock WindowFX I believe.
  19. That sounds normal. I got my MacBook in late August, and I have 68 charge cycles with over 100% battery capacity. I use my MacBook on battery until it gets into the red zone, then charge it till 100% and run it off battery again. I don't run it off the power adapter much unless charging because Apple recommends not doing that often to keep the battery healthy and the juices flowing. http://www.apple.com/batteries/notebooks.html A charge cycle is... http://www.apple.com/batteries/
