I'm running Windows 8 these days. Last was XP, I skipped the Windows systems between those two.
You know what is the problem with 8 mjm? Being an operative system deliberately made for turning people into idiots.What those logos reminds you? the cubes children used to play at kindergarten. All the system structure is made to turn people into idiots.React, don't use it.
By your reckoning, we've been slowly being turned into idiots ever since we left command-line in favor of GUIs.
Please say you're kidding. Because if you're not--- if you really believe that logos on the screen can turn you into an idiot-- then it may be already a little late.
what I saw was far from it (not that I have seen a Macbook Air in real; I simply believe the hype).
Instead of HDD it has an SSD, which some people say is a good thing, but I'm suspicious now after this encounter with an SSD machine. I am not smart enough to say if all the troubles of the machine are due to SSD or due to weak processor, whose specs did not seem weak to me (Quad-Core 1.4 GHz) but it surely behaved like it. The weakness can also be a combination of factors.The size of the SSD is some 95 GB. Isn't this too small? Well, this is where things get weird. The laptop comes with HomeSync and SideSync features - entrust your files to the cloud. Also, by a similar token, a host of vital features in the available hardware, such as bluetooth drivers, memory card slot drivers, better graphics drivers, security and recovery-related stuff, were available via Software Update module where you had to specifically add them, install and enable.
Oh wait, where do I started - sdds.... well, those would be small like I want them, but I am not in the mood to buy 'em just to waste 'em, as those small sized context I would like to have 'em in is write intensive and that is IMHO a nogo for sdds...
Despite having a far more limited lifespan compared to its 2bpc MLC brethren, the TLC NAND Samsung used in its 840 turned out to be quite reliable. Even our own aggressive estimates pegged typical client write endurance on the 840 at more than 11 years for the 128GB model.
Your information is outdated. See e.g. an SSD review from last year here.
To clarify, my 2010 Atom netbook doesn't feel terribly slow to me unless I try to use something like the GIMP. In fact it usually feels surprisingly fast. But of course, I'm using Xubuntu. On a different, inferior netbook Xubuntu was still quite snappy, but Windows 7 Home Edition did indeed feel slow.
Is 95GB too small? Depends on your use case, really. For me it'd do on my portable device. But 95GB is a bit of an odd number afaik. Perhaps it's 120 or 128GB with a 25-30GB recovery partition?
Sounds promising, but unless some tech review along prod-specs are explicitly naming such a device as built for swap/temp usage I would at least spare them from that purpose.
I don't know how to detect this data properly in Windows
