About the blue LED's, and I know this is most likely going to fall on def ears. Shuji Nakamura was the Nobel prize winner for this color. he also helped develop the white LED, and the LED responsible for the Blu-Ray disk's. The thing here is that there are different lumens for every LED available. It is the manufacturer who is responsible for the particular brightness of LED chosen. I will also add to this the fact that these LED's are targeted at a much younger gen, and not those of us who have ruined our vision looking at monitors nearly our entire lives.

As much as I hate the WIKI, here is some data on the Blue LED.

Thanks for the tube cast guys.

First I would like to say thank you for influencing me to buy a Radeon R9 390 It works great with Battlefield 1 i bought it for 320USD I had a gtx 660 2gb and it made get more frag kills than the previous card that i had.

now for the show I think the 1060 gtx turbo from asus is justifiebly priced dunno if that is even a word.

For the intel SSD enterprise drive is it much better to have a magnetic hdd than ssd. The lifespan of HDD is much longer than SSD right. But enterprise saves more money on SSD than HDD right. I guess its good for database stuff too though i don't have an SSD. I am waiting for OCZ ssd the amd base or a good intel ssd 2tb cause i game a lot.


that is tempting but expensive ill wait black friday is coming soon

Mali gpu nice i can't imagine TI did not make a move to push TI Omap cpus on android

Asus Strix is really nice thats what i got from my AMD Radeon R9 390
I had a x99 deluxe wish it was a x99 strix I the customization its a good marketing stuff.
It is also priced well.

Hope though you guys put a dedicated gpu on prebuilt pc by pc manufacturers.

For kaby lake i am torn between intel and amd lol but with 4k video its always nice to have a powerful igpu.

You guy should make windows app tube cast.

What do you guy think of phoronix.com?

For the ad will kaspersky slow down my pc?

For the Lenova Yoga book the concept looks cool you can always get a Bluetooth keyboard. 499usd ?

Looks like lenovo is on track on the NextUnit of Computing.
And on the gaming front http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/desktops/ideacentre/y700/
Acer is EU manufacturer and Gateway is for SoCAL. Is Gateway still around?

But lenovo has a really nice Gaming PC lineup.

Is HBM kinda like a RAMBUS?


Thanks for the info guys!!!!

SSDs are generally far more reliable than any mechanical storage device, especially if they are lightly used. The 840 EVO had a bug that impacted its performance if it stored data for a long period of time, but that has been mostly corrected. An SSD performing typical consumer tasks (even as a Steam game drive), will have no issue retaining its data for years.

gateway is wrong it should be machines

ps4 is also a strong influence
