    Yep. 1366x768 is horrible. I even prefer 1280x800, because there's extra height and it displays 720p content without scaling (and 2560x1440 works similarly being 4x720p), although there is letterboxing, but that leaves space from controls/menus.

    The Pros have much better screens from a quality perspective - I think it's the anti-glare coating on the Airs that cuts down the saturation. Though I don't understand why the 13" Pros STILL have 1280x800. 1440x900 should be a MINIMUM, although I expect 2560x1600 retina displays on them soon, which are incidentally the same res as the 30" Dells.

    Couldn't say. It's certainly a big component of the power usage, for sure. Most of that is actually the backlight. I never really gave much time to using my mac on an external screen, as mine and my old 22" 1080p monitor don't get along and I have no intention of forking out for a Dual-Link DVI adapter for my current screen.

    Sounds nice. :D I couldn't go back to anything with less that 2560x1440 resolution for a desktop screen, though. And they're still so hard to get.

    Can't help you with calibration, sorry. I've always used the Windows default tool to make it look right for my eyes and left it at that. Either way, an IPS screen will have much richer colours than cheaper TN panels even without calibrating. :cer_nod:

    Hmm, long time no see. :)

    What's your most preferred operating system? I think I have an idea, but I want to be sure.

    Honestly I really like Linux/UNIX operating systems, even though I've loved Windows since forever <3

    Haylo Twiggy, I got a question to ask. If I missed a little for every movie but still attend all, will I still get this emblem?

    Nice to use and convenient. Plus, there's a certain novelty to having a new gadget to play with. :D

    Definitely. No warranty is a gamble where you need to be prepared to deal with the consequences. That said, if you're going to be buying the adapter online, you'll probably want to order it before getting the monitor so it arrives in time to use.

    Let me know what you end up getting. :D

The blog's going to be left as is, as an archive, but no more.

Well, which one would work well for me? I think I'll also do my own research while you guys pour in the comments.

Just what's going on with Pokémon Groups these days?!

I know something strange is going on these days. People are quite the fickle one - sign up, then bolt away. I've seen a lot of deleted posts in threads... including my clubs. Whatever is happening there, it is going to harm everyone involved in the health of Pokémon Groups. It's one thing to not like a group. It's another thing to pretend that you're in a group for show. Nobody wants to be the person that just sits there, huh?...

...and when I tried to reinstall Windows, I noticed that I don't have any blank DVDs or USB sticks around, seeing as I'm living in my uncle's home for the week.

This was the time when I started to learn OS X deeply.

I've begun to actually love it.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

One thing I learned today is that even though the screens might be pre-calibrated, it's a good idea to recalibrate the monitor anyway.


Well... at least gamma isn't wonky and it's no longer baked warm. I think I'm now enjoying my display, even in OS X.
