Hewlett-Packard expands its Mini (netbook) "information snacking (HP Press)" series with 3 new models, eta summer 2009
. Mini 110 XP Edition,
. Mini 110 Mi Edition
. Mini 1101.
The Minis are of light weight (2+lbs) with a 10.1" screen, and offer buyers a choice between 1.6ghz N270 or 1.66GHz N280 Intel Atom.
The Mini 110 XP Edition comes with:
. up to 1 GB RAM (I don't understand why they just say 1gigo period?)
. 32GB SSD or 160GB HHD - after the find that SSD in netbook are "slow" I think I will stick with the traditional HDD unless HP can state otherwise )
. optional (why optional?) W-WAN.
. optional Broadcom Crystal HD Enhanced Video Accelerator, for a 1080HD video experience. HP expects this optional feature to be available in July. I am writing up a small post on this Broadcom Crystal HD enhanced shortly, or if anyone care to jump in first (?)
. choice of "Black Swirl", "Pink Chic" and "White Swirl" looks.
The Mini 110 Mi Edition aka “mobile companion” device dashboard can launch Web browsing apps, e-mail, online video enjoyment. HP claims that this would minimize start-up time. The dashboard can be customized to add most used functions...
I just purchased a dv7-1273cl from aafes, here in Afghanistan. They were recently stocked at our local Base Exchange, around the 2nd of March.
t6400 Processor (2.0Ghz, 2mb L2 Cache, 45nm die,etc.) 4gb of DDR2 at 800mhz 9600 GT video Card w/ 512Mb of Memory 500gb 5400rpm harddrive 2x Blu-Ray player WXGA (1440x900) Screen Bluetooth, wireless, e-sata port, HDMI port, etc, etc. Vista Home Premium x64 SP1
Here's my questions:
What CPU's can this guy be upgraded to? It runs fine as is, (sins of a solar Empire at max settings 4x AA and not a hickup, Don't know frame rate, don't really care, as my eyes are things that matters)
I tried doing research into what processors it will accept, but I'm unclear and I haven't seen any posts.
If my Front Side Bus is 800mhz, is that restricted by the CPU itself or by some chipset on the Motherboard?
Also I've read that there some problems with the Sound Card drivers (IDT HD audio) and also that the Blu-Ray player wouldn't work on some of the same model numbers that were sold at Costco. I have not had a chance to test the blu-ray player, but my Audio driver has yet to consume 50% of the CPU usage, at anytime (knock on wood).
As you might have guessed I don't have a steady Internet connection, so I'm pretty much just cleaning out alot of the HP junk except for the stuff that has been integrated to deeply and I can just hide away, and so far it's worked pretty good. I have Adobe CS4 Master Edition installed and It runs all those programs wonderfully
I work for a charity and have inherited a HP Compaq 6735s in which the HD has been wiped. I do not have any recovery disks. Simple question - how do I get to the Command Line? The Start up menu is just that, a menu. Can I break out to a command line?
My CPU is reporting temps between 57c - 66c (135f -150f) at 10% CPU Usage. I'm using Istat Pro to monitor. I live in Singapore of course so i'm sure the climate contributes to this. But I get those temps even when I have the aircon on. Is there something wrong with my unit?
have to say its disappointing really. while i am happy for the DRM free itunes and for the new 17 inch macbook pro they really did i think drop the ball with no new mac mini, no imac update, no iphone nano (even though i think the idea is dumb), no new displays....
I'm looking to upgrade from my early 2008 macbook pro 15, which has a 1440x900 screen. I now want to upgrade to the new unibody 15 inch model. I want to get the base model starting at 1699, but i realise that it has the 9400 GPU. Since the high end 13inch with these same specs only has a 1280x800 screen, will the 15 inch with the same spec GPU have a better screen rez, or will it be the same as the high end 13inch MBP.
I just wanted to know if this is normal. In XP, my early 2009 macbook (check my sig) only downclocks the processor to 1.59GHz (from 2.0GHz) in power saver mode. My 2008 macbook (intel) would downclock to 800MHz (from 2.1GHz). That just doesn't seem right, is that normal? Just doesn't seem like much of a power saver to me.
I just got my 4GB crucial kit in today, 2x2GB 800MHz DDR2. Since the new white macbook update just came out (2.13GHz), and it reportedly supports 800MHz RAM, I decided to try and upgrade mine (2.0GHz model). I just wanted to report that my macbook recognizes it no problem, and reports the speed at 800MHz.
I have heard some crying earlier from within the Dell message board, so let me clarify this now... I do not have a camera rite now, nor any pictures to compare or to post to this thread.... but here goes:
The Studio XPS is processor is Intel® Core™ i7-820QM with Edge-to-edge Glossy 16.0 inch Full HD RGB-LED LCD display (1080p)!
We are comparing the screen of the Dell 1645 to a Macbook Pro and an iMac... the results are sad. 1645 displays notably better than both of these Macs, but red and green are displayed slightly off.
Here are the images we are comparing on each screen that are loaded in seperate tabs:
some recent pictures from my buddy michaels wedding: [url] and [url]
I am VERY HAPPY to report that blacks display far better on the 1645 than a 2009 Macbook Pro or the iMac. When viewing photo intensive websites, the 1645 is really gripping our attention (all things being equal such as brightness set to max, etc.)
I am going to buying one of these in Canada and will take the basic 2.8ghz model with no upgrades. I would however like to get 8gb of ram because I will be doing lots of multi-tasking and some 3d work in windows. Obviously I will not pay apple's crazy prices. I know you can buy "generic" ram for the laptop and was wondering if you know what ram I can use and if you know of any good deals? If I sell the mac ram and only user "generic" ram will my warranty be voided?
I'm considering buying the model stated in this thread title. I know that the processor is an older T9600 model and not the more efficient P9700. What I would like to know from those of you who have this model is; do your notebooks run a lot hotter (and therefore noisier?) with this processor?
This would be my first Mac so I just want to understand how a particular advertised GPU feature in PCs translate to Macs; PC manufacturers state that their computers have graphics cards with (for instance) "512mb dedicated memory with up to 1791mb shared." If I understand this correctly the PC GPUs take memory from the RAM and that's what the "Shared" bit is. The Mac website doesn't mention anything about "shared" memory so how does this apply to macs? Sorry if this last question seems a bit remedial.
I just bought a Macbook Pro (8 days ago) with iLife 2008 on it. I contacted Apple and they said an email with a link to download the update file would be sent. Anyone have similar experiences regarding updates ?
There has been an ongoing and as yet to be fixed issue concerning CTO Macbook Pro's with 7200 RPM drives. I would be interested in knowing if any of you who have purchased a Macbook Pro (since June 2009) from Apple with a 7200 RPM drive, have NOT had this issue. Can you please include your hard drive information including Firmware/Revision number, and when you purchased your Macbook Pro.

I'm thinking about snagging a copy of iWork 2009 because, well, I don't like Office 2008 even though I paid a marginal price for the suite as available from my medical school. I realize that Office 2011 is coming within the next seven months or so, but until then...
I haven't been able to find a thing out about iWork 2010, so I'm assuming I'd just spring for the '09 version. In experimenting with the trial, I've noticed that even a simple import of a text-only .docx is formatted differently; it seems like the line spacing is different, because in the imported .pages that Pages makes from the source .docx I made, there are two additional lines of text on the first page. Why is this?
My big thing is that all created works must be easily taken to a different platform; I like OS X, but I have no allegiance to it or to Apple, and if a solid competitor to the 15" MBP comes along, I would seriously consider switching back to Windows 7. I rarely need to share .doc/.docx (or any other Office suite) files with others for their own editing, so PDF exports would suffice most of the time.
I know that .pages files are essentially archives containing XML data and a .pdf of the document, but I'd hate to have to hand-convert a bunch of XMLs if I did switch back. And sadly, Pages doesn't natively save to a .doc/.docx -- it only exports (though I did read about a hack to change that some time ago). Formatting mismatches for something as minor as line spacing are just concerning.
