    100 Million is a drop in the bucket for Dell.

    LOL, look at the specs for the $699 mac mini. It still has a C2D and weak hardware, it’s pretty insulting. The “server class” is even worse.

      I think it is an awesome upgrade. I love the new chassis. My only criticism is the stock 2GB of memory – they should have bumped that up to 4GB.

      The fact that Apple has stayed with a Core 2 Duo is not a big deal as far as I am concerned as the C2D has plenty of power (how soon we forget what a great CPU the C2D is). My current HTPC Mac mini is running a 1.66 Core Duo and plays 1080p content via Plex.

      You can expand it to 8GB of memory and dual displays (2560×1600 / 1920×1200). This can be an awesome little workstation.

      It’s damn small and low power though. It looks pretty good as well. Supports dual monitors. Better than the Dell Zino HD, although that has cheap options available.

    “VR-Zone shares rumor: Nvidia preparing GeForce GTX 455, GTX 260, and GTX 490 ”

    I know Nvidia likes to rebrand and all but I believe that GTX 260 is a typo. Or would this be the first example of back branding? 🙂

      • d0g_p00p
      • 10 years ago

      It’s the GTX 460, not 260.

      • JustAnEngineer
      • 10 years ago

      NVidia’s evil marketing geniuses have already sold three different chips as the “GeForce GTX 260”. Is it more likely that they would do it again or that Ronald made an innocent typographical error?

    V. Dell & Ubuntu
    How can the Dell page claim/imply Windows doesn’t run Open Office? In the second graphic, there’s a red X at the intersection of Windows and Open Office.

    Maybe they mean it’s not pre-installed when it comes from Dell. If so, that’s very misleading.

    IV.Music industry lobbyist call for death penalty for piracy

    Wow. Check out that quote in there. It’s amazing that people so disconnected from reality are still in charge of these companies and organizations while they’re being run into the ground.

      • Raskaran
      • 10 years ago

      He’s on to it, just look at the chart §[<<]§ now if we just make digital pirates=sea pirates, then the problem is solved.

      • destroy.all.monsters
      • 10 years ago

      How about the death penalty for lobbyists?

      Far more people would be down for that.

        • DrCR
        • 10 years ago

        EVERY free man and woman should be a lobbyist. Unfortunately so many don’t care and/or get handouts from the government. So bills get hijacked and the politicians still keep their jobs.

    • Shining Arcanine

    Fudzilla claims that ATI is “not answering Nvidia’s Fermi generation of cards”, but I thought Cypress was their answer.

      • djgandy
      • 10 years ago

      Yeah. Why make a new product? They still have a huge margin to cut by on their current range if necessary. They could certainly hurt nvidia’s margins if they wanted.

    • JustAnEngineer
    • 10 years ago

    Bring on GF104. This is what we needed from NVidia last fall.

      • anotherengineer
      • 10 years ago

      And southern islands, to see how ATI’s new architecture compares to Nvidia’s new architecture.
