I never use my Tower. Like Ever. Been using my laptop constantly. Almost thinking i should sell it. Although i notice my laptop is starting to loose Graphical juice for the couple of games i sometimes play. Probably cus she's getting clogged up and warm again.
Don't wanna get rid of the tower out of fear that one day those great things will be gone.
I competed in Medal of Honor, Cod2 & Bf2. Gaming became an addiction. I slowed down only after going to college fill time while working full time.My husband built all my gaming rigs. Most women get jewelry for gifts I would get motherboards, RAM, sound card, etc. I stopped gaming complelety when our son feel 33ft and his recovery was more important.
well its just how they ding you a few hundred Dollars Every 2 Years.
to replace it at the factor, but ya sadly yes. Apparently they couldnt manage to get a high enough battery life out of a easily replaceable battery unit. and still maintain the Sleek form of the computer. Even then most of them only see 4-5 hours of battery life witch is not that great for an ultra book. A select few that do 6-8 are more respectable. I've seen only one of the lenovo with a replaceable 3 cell, but it's just the same some even less watts and even then it's like 4-5 hours. be better off slapping a 6 cell onto a Netbook. not as powerful machine, but it'll do the Basic jobs just fine, and some of them have Atom dual cores. you'll get your 6-8 hours and you can keep replacing the battery, You just sacrafise the premium look.
true, but i found with ebay not all laptops seem to have higher capacity batteries available, also 95% of ultra books has developed the same thing apple uses, and that's an irreplaceable battery by the user.
meh i installed windows 7 on a macbook air purchased because none of the ultra books could beat it in battery life. claiming 8 hours some of them where as they'd see between 3-5 where the only ones getting 6-7 were more expensive then the air achieving 8 all the time.
i made 20 bucks off that -_- i woulda did it for free LOL so enjoyable.
So i'm going to tell you this cause i'm fighting your couple week old comment of calling me an apple supporting dumb ass, witch i am not.
I went to best buy today, and next to all the Android and Windows 8 tablets their is the section that Apple always pays for in the store and they have their specially trained best buy worker and everything. I installed the windows 8 start button on 1 of the 499$ core i3 windows RT tablet, witch is actually surprisingly a decent advice, fast, functional, etc. But i couldn't on any of the laptops because of admin pasword and stuff. And then i noticed a few people taking more interest in the RT one, it was awesome. I've told customers looking around several times, YA windows 8 sucks, you can still the start bar back and disable the Metro menu to make everything normal again though, takes a little simple tweaking. I think i'ma put an ad up, offering my help for that.
solved my gateway laptop problem. Loose connections inside the AC adapter head.
replaced the adapter with a part from acer. got a year warranty on it 30 bucks, bout right. havn't had an issue since. so other then being fucked over and having the fan replaced. I have a 2 year 3 month old laptop going strong from heavy useage without problems :)
just a AC adapter. Not counting the fan, they blew it out and shed the blades. Well i'd call that bad luck + normal wear and tear maintaince like a car lol.
