  1. Hi all, I am looking for a portable wireless speaker set that I plan on using with my Windows laptop and my Android phone for under $150 (if possible). Let me know if I need to extend my budget (within reason) to find speakers that have decent quality. Number 1 for me is the sound quality, prefer accurate sounds for voices and music and do not need crazy bass, though I'd like to watch the occasional movie. I don't need to fill large rooms so loudness isn't that much of a concern. I plan on using it indoors only but I'll be moving around fairly often and in within different small room setups (all times the speakers will be in relatively close proximity to laptop or phone but some locations, I'd prefer to have no wires to the source), which is why I prefer a portable wireless set. I'd say 25% of time I will connect speakers directly to source via 3.5mm connection, but will mainly use it wirelessly. I don't mind if I have to plug in the speakers to an outlet since I can extend the power to the wall (speakers will tend to be close to wall, while laptop in middle of room), but batteries or having a rechargeable battery in the speakers would be useful (though not necessary a definite plus, with rechargeable batteries being the preferred option). Weight definitely plays a role though as I will be moving these around often. I've seen a lot of different ways for wireless speakers to connect (bluetooth+-NFC, wifi) and don't know much about them, but I'm all for easy setup with lossless audio. I usually have access to wifi too. USB to charge speakers would be a nice touch in some situations but not necessary. Please let me know what you guys recommend and if you require any more information to give me a good recommendation. I hope my requirements aren't too stringent either. Thanks, everyone!
  2. Haha, one year later, what do I purchase? This exact pair of shoes again in grey. I'm still using my green pair but could always use another.
  3. Yeah, separate issue. I never used Setup 1.x anyways. Oh well
  4. Not really following what this does, how to find this file, or how to remake it lol...
  5. Has anyone figured out a way to get Lenovo Thinkpads to work with 16GB and eGPU? Or if I've missed a post, please refer me to where to look. Thus far eGPU only working with 8GB or less.
  6. I've had numerous WD external portable drives now and they've all worked flawless. Bought from Costco, in case of any problems, you can always return it (but I never have). Had their 1TB USB 2.0 drive, gave that to my brother when I got a new 1TB USB 3.0. Just gave that to my gf since I got a new 2TB USB 3.0 drive. Only $115 at Costco and it has a soft neoprene case. Very fast transfers - large movies easily copied at 50-60 MB/s.
  7. I haven't had any luck with 16GB in my W520. I'm hoping someone has figured out a work around or if Lenovo will release a new BIOS that won't have this issue.
  8. Almost every 660 Ti was under $200 at Newegg a little while ago if you paid with a Visa. A lot has changed since the OP posted in the summer of 2011 though...
  9. Personally, I found the LOTR novels and movies pretty dry. I just saw Jack Reacher, was pretty entertaining.
  10. Fair enough. I was just thinking of my (really) old Dell Inspiron laptop and how it used a modular bay battery. The problem was it only started draining after the main one was done and when you swapped in the new main battery, it stopped draining the modular bay one. I'd have preferred that it would keep drain the modular battery then when I took out the modular battery, it would switch back to the main battery. Alternatively, maybe just have a small built in battery that is used when switching out the one main battery?
  11. I really liked the concept of the Dell Latitude Z600. My ideal yet realistic notebook would be similar to the Z600 but in a 15.4" (16:10 aspect ratio) form factor that could turn into a tablet PC. Hardware wise, I'd want: - regular Intel quad core CPU with their small form factor chipset - 4 SODIMM slots (4x8GB) - 2 mSATA RAID0 SSDs (2x 512GB) - Thunderbolt connection to a switchable nVidia GTX Titan eGPU enclosure - 8-bit IPS panel with capacitive multitouch and adaptive transflective screen on a thin bezel - 2 slim removable batteries (similar to above, needs intelligent switch so that it alternates which battery drains) - slice battery for long trips, every battery should have a LED indicator with battery level - thin high wattage power brick
  12. I know the feeling. I haven't gotten around to housing my eGPU.
  13. The GTX 650 is more than enough for my SC2 at max settings and does not require a separate 6-pin connector. I only got the GTX 650 Ti since it had a MIR that made it the same price as the former. The total wattage is not that useful. You need to check the specs and see if a single 12V rail can deliver enough amperage to meet the demands of the GPU's TDP.
