As much as I hate the idea of small tablets with high powered hardware, it's good to see some competition to the surface. That $300 model might just put me over the edge on getting something like that.
It was a matter of time before a University came up with a way to cool my overclocked onboard graphics chip.
Any thoughts on the encryption problem that they're having? Last year something like 400k address books were culled from yahoo emails each day by the American Government versus something like 30k or 40k on other providers. As much as I'd like to use all of this awesome stuff, things like this keep me away from Yahoo. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that I'm a huge fanboy of any one particular email provider but it's hard to convince me to switch with something like that being held over my head.
I'm not convinced that a $400-$600 price point makes me want one of these. Don't get me wrong, compared to something like a WYSE terminal, these things rock but as a traditional tower owner, I can't take them seriously - yet. With the steambox and things like that coming out, it will be interesting to see what smaller kits can do. Viva la mobile revolución!
It's too bad that there is some negative hype with the 290x being delayed. From what I can tell, none of it is true (at least as of 10/13 on AMD's twitter). I've always owned Nvidia cards but am glad that there's a healthy competition between the two.
I blame Hardware360 on facebook for bringing me here. I realize now exactly how these giveaways work for immense marketing potential. The best hook to this one was activate participation on the site - which no doubt will have me posting comments on things daily. Good job!
