3x 2304x1440 has got to be too big for a card with 1GB VRAM. I'm sure a 5850 would be fine for DX9 or DX9 with DX11 bolted on games like Bad Company 2 (but still, my 5850 OCd to 950 only holds up BC2 maxes without AA at 40fps), but for any true DX11 titles coming out, I'd want a card with at least 1.5GB VRAM for an insane res like 6912x1440 like he'd be running.

Where exactly do you get a DP -> DVI converter that supports VGA? All the ones I've seen don't

After all, how else are you going to type the things it's asking you to type? lol

Aw. How cute. He's jealous of you. Don't mind his ignorance, my friend. This is normal human behavior for jealousy.
What shocked me was that he was telling that this skill, which most people of our (him and me) use everyday, was useless.

Yeah, I remember having to write what was on the screen (IIRC the screen was divided in half with the text in the upper half and what you're writing in the lower half) without looking at my fingers otherwise I would not pass the level
It was in French too, so I had to use the number bar for accents and stuff like that

Yes it is . I just got a thinkpad and I can't even begin to tell you how relieved I am that I have a trackpoint on my laptop again, after about 10 years without it. I hate touchpads.

And, well, if you go back through the thread it's been off topic plenty of times, but we always manage to get back to keyboards.

I know right, I feel like an fumbling idiot whenever I use one of my friend's laptops. For some strange reason, the Thinkpads' (at least mine) touchpad is actually good (although very very small) because it's the only one I've ever seen that has low friction even when my finger gets sweaty (doesn't take much for me unfortunately )

(technically scissor switches are still off-topic )

Meh. That's because he's jealous. His lack of maturity is causing him to be jealous of the fact that people who touch type can type way faster than he'll ever be able to. For example, I can type about 85 WPM because I touch type. But I bet that he can barely break 50 WPM. I bet that typing is also not as easy for him, and so that is another reason for him to be jealous.

What's worse is he doesn't know he's jealous. He thinks that he's right and he thinks that his way is superior because he didn't have to go and learn how to do it. But again: his way has caused him to end up with inferior typing skills and so now he's jealous.

So just ignore him.

Well, of course you can't look at the keyboard, but I'm referring to being able to take a sheet of paper and type what's on the paper without taking your eyes off of the words on that paper. I think that learning from a text book makes it easier for me to be able to do this.

Oh. The text book I used was in English. hehe Although, I didn't skip anything in the book. I even went through the section that taught the Top Row. Actually, I skipped the keypad section. hehe I never use the keypad. The Top Row is so much easier for me because I never have to leave the main part of the keyboard.

Oh I know what you mean, the touchpad on this thing is really, really smooth. Well ok, it's textured, but there isn't even the slightest bit of skin dragging like you get with almost all other laptops. Texture wise, it's awesome.

Oh, and another thing I can't stand: FLAT OVERSIZED CHICLET KEYS!!!! I don't even know where to begin with these. I can't understand how anyone can find them comfortable. Well, I can imagine that for the "average" slower typist it doesn't matter much. But at 110WPM there's no way for me to hit those keys properly. My muscle memory is just way too used to standard size and spacing, and the curve helps catch your finger and make the keystroke more natural since you don't have to press exactly downwards like you have to on flat keys.

But seriously, Thinkpads make most other laptops look and feel like toys.

Flat, oversized chiclet keys? Do you mean like that slim Apple keyboard? hehe

I remember liking that board quite a bit at a job I had recently where our computers were the latest iMacs with OSX Leopard (10.5). But, lol, now that I have the Majestouch Tactile Click NKRO.... well, yeah. Extremely superior. LOL But I liked that Apple board because it was so quiet and I even liked the typing experience. But now nothing can top the Majestouch for me. At least not yet.
