I did a quick google and it says the PS5 is backward compatible with nearly all PS4 games. Anyone around used their PS4 discs in a PS5? I'm…

Is it rampant profiteering? Yes. Is it a joke for the >90% of users that just use this for light web work, office apps and photo editing?…

I heard the ARM x86 translation (like Apple’s Rosetta) is looking very promising and performant. Native will always be better, but look…

That’s my fear as well, they’ll probably want, or need, to emulate the very profitable Apple business model.

A bit late to the party, but you can toggle the voice enhancement with the remote. Although it’s easier with the app.

Yeah I was refreshing this morning and they added another. Just snagged it.

Great spec sheet, I just wish they give these notebooks larger 60+Wh batteries to make them proper all day battery life.

Was it the 75” version? As you move up in size judder becomes pronounced as the objects in the image moves further between frames. I…

I second this. The Air M1 will easily handle that.
18/01/2023 - 17:01
Yup, it's an expensive luxury item. The argument would be it's one of the most powerful laptops you can buy, and it'll keep up that…

Nah, you'd need to record the show when it's broadcast on FTA to play it back later and skip ads.

Looks to be cheaper at OW for the base model pro 14 ($2537)…

Yeah it’s so frustrating they completely undercook the batteries on these laptops. I can’t imagine these lasting very long unplugged.

This one has small rubber dots you add to the track which helps a little with the noise. But I wouldn’t call it quiet!
