Wow, that is pretty pricey! Unfortunately, there's no sign of that battery on the UK Dell site. I went ahead and bought an unofficial 4-cell from an ebay shop. They had good ratings so hopefully I'll...

I'm trying to get hold of a new battery for my Mini 9 as mine is knackered. I've seen various comically oversized third-party batteries that claim to offer extended battery life, etc, but I...

That's what I was thinking too! I think the streaming must be done in a really inefficient way in WMP. I copied the stream url from WMP and played it back in VLC player. No skips, no jumps. Such a...

Even with GMABooster running at 400MHz, the framerate is awful. From what I've seen on my main rig, the game only gets more hectic as you progress further through, so I'd imagine it would be...

My net connection has a ping of 100-200ms usually. I would've thought that would be enough to make games unplayable. I'll have to give it the old college trial at some point I suppose!
