1012 with 2GB, TV tuner, Bluetooth, WiFi(n), Crystal HD, Win 7 Home Premium, etc.
Just put Skype on my new 1012. Anyone have any experiences with it to report?
When I click on the computer icon it tells me that my computer is running slowly.
Video quality is medium. Everything seems to be working fine. I haven't made an actual call yet to see how well it works in combat, though.
Movie playback - curious to hear back from everyone else on their experiences:
Windows Media Center - they still haven't coded it for Crystal HD so it's a bit choppy playing back recorded video. Live TV is choppy also.
Dell Digital TV app ( came with the Mini ) - plays live HD TV perfect.
Windows Media Player - all is good. Plays back the WMC recorded TV from my other DVRs just fine.
Flash Player Beta 10.1 RC6 - not too bad. Hulu is a bit choppy but quite watchable at the highest resolution setting.
QuickTime - Once I finally got a movie trailer page on quicktime.com to come up the 480x272 and 640x360 quicktime plug-in played back the trailers ok. So I tried an HD movie trailer - didn't play back all that well.
IE8 in general just seems to REALLT CRAWL on this PC. Comparing load times with the desktop running through the same DSL is short of a joke. Alot slower than you think it should be. The CPU isn't THAT MUCH slower.
