    I'm in no hurry. I'll download it at work on Saturday to save myself 4GB of download quota. Then I'll either try it on an external HDD or swap my HDD for a test run. There are a few things that I'm interested in, but also a bunch of features I don't care for.

    *notices that his receipt is missing*

    It's going to be something that can be done this Monday. Aaaaaargh, Mountain Lion~

    Said missing receipt might be a blessing in disguise.

    I must be the only person playing Skyrim at 24 FPS and find it good.

    (Heh. I can crank up the texture resolution and actor/light fade safely, and still have my frame rate at least 20.)

    As for Minecraft, though... *mind boggles* How fast is the ATi Radeon X900?

    I find Firefox to be very awesome on OS X. Just like how it did on Windows. Chrome, I'm saving that for the space.

    I just know how to do things both ways now. It's a bit like being bilingual. :D You approach them separately, rather than translating ideas from one to another.

    Yeah, Safari is just underwhelming. Not horrible, there's just no compelling reason to use it over Chrome/Firefox.

    I'm the opposite. I've become very accustomed to high framerates and resolutions. Graphics themselves don't really bother me as long as they're nice and sharp.

    I guess I prefer doing some things the old way in the end, since I don't want to somehow get myself stuck for the times where I'm on someone else's Windows laptop.

    I also left most, if not all of OS X's native gestures on, by the way.

    Seems like Safari is made so that they could tick the "have browser" check box.

    I'm now a very happy OS X user. No more spinning beach balls of doom, huh? (Safari likes to hang.)

    I've always wondered whether gaming a long time with anemic GPUs (PS1 > GeForce 2 MX > Radeon 9250 > Radeon Xpress 1100 > DS) meant that I'm very tolerant to bad graphics and frame rate. My first real top-of-the-line GPU was a GeForce 9800 GTX+. xD It certainly meant smoking the spec sheets back then! For some reason, I also got something with a nonstandard design - most 9800s are dual-slot, while mine is single-slot. 60 FPS was awesome!

    I MUCH prefer the way OSX deals with the trackpad, I just have a three-finger-press gesture for middle click and two-finger-tap or press for right click.

    Safari sucks by comparison. It only gets major updates as often as the OS and there are far fewer addons than there are for Chrome and FF. I use Chrome because it syncs almost everything between my Macbook, Desktop and phone.

    Yes, if you're gaming, you'll need a good mouse. Trackpads just don't cut it regardless of what they are.

    Hey, I still remember being able to get away with a 120 GB drive on one of my old laptops.

    Money for everything!

    I suppose I'll have to reserve 60 GB of space on the Windows side anyway, seeing as games tend to be huge... and a bunch of school-related IDEs and stuff. They're huge.

    Apple mice kind of sucks - I think I'll grab the old optical mice I have in my home and sacrifice one of my USB ports. Good thing I also have a hub ready.

    I'm having a bad case of programming burnout.

    It's so fun to middle click everything now that I've got the middle click area down pat.

    Time to tweak the trackpad to act like a Windows trackpad!

    I guess I really don't like Safari, seeing as I switched to Firefox. Much better. No autocorrect might hurt a bit, though.

    I hate that feeling. Which is why I'm hesitant get an Air in the future. At least with this Pro, I can dump a SSD in the main bay and a HDD in the Optical bay.

    Also, my power adapter is starting to die. That's just another cost that REALLY don't need at the moment. Over the past week:

    - Car - headlights gone, radiator gone, battery died, needed to buy more oil. Now the registration is due. That's a lot of money in a short space of time.

    - Now, some uni fees for next semester and my phone bill need to be paid.

    Hehe. It's cramped in there, and I guess I have to do some space planning.

    Do you mean 50/50? It all depends on how much space you want on each side. If you're only using Windows for a few small things, then don't give it half the space unless you need it. You can always create a bootable USB Flash Drive.

    Yeah, they're much better now, but I can't stand less than 60 FPS, so I stick to my desktop with my AMD 6970.

All times are UTC -8. The time now is 03:59 PM.
