I just thought I'd share a little known product that excels at everything I've thrown at it.  I've owned this notebook from the first day it showed up on Amazon's website.  Most people would think of it as little more than a netbook with touchscreen but it is so much more.  I replaced the hard drive with an SSD and it's even more amazing!  I can edit video using Pinnacle Studio 15 and Handbrake, play games at medium settings including Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and Fallout: New Vegas.  And even multi-task with downloading torrents while doing one of the above activities.  Watching 720p movies and video on it is seamless and smooth.  Windows 8 takes some getting used to but it can actually run Windows 7 with all drivers for hardware working perfectly.  Everyone that I've recommended it to and have bought it love it for the size and convenience.

I'd have trouble with the 2x2 cube...much less the fact I didn't even know they made more than a 4x4 cube!  :D

I know I'm not the most fashionable person in the world, but I'd like to think I'm pretty practical.  These shoes look horrid and if I saw any woman (or man for that matter) wearing these I'd have to go up to them and inquire as to what their mental illness was.  I realize stupidity is incurable except through euthanasia, and these shoes just enforce that point.

So I downloaded and tried the new beta SteamOS for non-UEFI machnes.  It's a rather slick interface and I can see how it might give XBOX and PS4 a run for their money.  I loaded it onto a laptop mind you with rather meager specs.  Core2Duo 1.83GHz, nVidia 7300GS 64MB, 4GB RAM.  But it ran nicely.  Personally I don't understand the whole hoopla on how the boutique manufacturers are ready to churn out machines with uber specs just to run the OS.  It is Linux based after all and how many of the Steam games are Linux compatible?  I suppose they want to cover all the bases of any game in the library but it's ridiculous to think you would spend over $500 on a machine that is designed around Linux.  Anyone else get a chance to try SteamOS?

I agree that expensive SteamBoxes don't really make much sense atm.

It's sorcery.  I'm sure of it.  Unlisted ingredients are:  Unicorn's horn, fairy farts, and Rumplestiltskin's left testicle...

They just figured out an enzyme type material that reacts with paper.  Neat.

Craigslist FTW:  ASUS ROG G51VX laptop for sale.  Bad battery and hard drive.  $100?  Gee, Sold!  Laptop works great.  Core2Quad Q9000, GT260M 1GB video, Blu-Ray Drive, eSATA/USB port, backlit keyboard, the works.  I popped in two hard drives (yes, it has room for two) and loaded up Windows 7 and it runs like a champ.  Ordered a new extended battery and it should be sweet on the go.  Sometimes it pays to troll the Craigslist.  :D
