Ipad is a good toy, but IMHO it isn't a laptop replacement. It's optimistic to compare 'apps' with real 'applications' too.

If you rely on your laptop, you'll just have to compromise too much to...

Yes. It's just a joke. I fond a kernel panic, and a broken glass pic on the net, and photoshopped them together.

It annoys my colleague at work. He's of the keep everything immaculate breed. ...

Not quite.

I like their products, but I don't like Apple very much.

On the other hand, I think the law is pretty well understood (UK and US are similar, if not identical), the price you see...

I think this is spot on.

Can't imagine there'll be much on the next one that I haven't got somewhere in my rucksack anyway. Bragging rights, maybe, but that'll only last untill the next one comes...

I reckon the laptop question is a bit of a chicken and egg one.

Do I not take mine everywhere becuase I don't need to, or because it's heavy and inconvenient?

To call it a notebook is dubious....

I read on the Internet that the 4th Gen will be able to create Higgs bosons, and also play the guitar solo from stairway to heaven.

It's probably a daft question, but I have a Mac or a Win7 pc, either of which I can use to connect/fill etc my Ipad.

Are there any differences? I have so far used the Mac, but I have win7 on a...

Dual screen context menu problem

Hi,

I have a second monitor on my Imac, and recently it has started doing the most irritating thing with context menus.

I often drag Firefox over to the right hand (second) screen and maximize...

Having some problems here with my Imac.

Every so often my connection drops. It'll happen typically once an hour, for about 5-10 mins at a time. It's a 20" Imac intel, connecting to a D-link...

Where in UK can I get a new microphone for Imac?

I managed to trash the internal mic on my Imac (20" Aluminium 2008ish), was pulling it apart, and pulled a bit too hard . . .

Is there somewhere I can order bits like that, preferably by model,...
