me got iBook! bow!
Nice top Jake.
12.1 is better, crisper.
Out of curiousity, what sort of FPS do you get in say... Quake 3?
How does X run on it? Does the lack of Altivec seem to make much difference at all?
Mmmm.. 16MB card. If I didn't know better, I'd say that was good enough for WC3.
i haven't installed Q3 yet. OS X performance is totally decent. it's only running 128MB RAM right now so it can only get better with more RAM and jaguar. yeah, this thing meets the W3 system reqs.
12.1 is definitely better.
Gimme your video card!!!
isn't there a thing where you are supposed to remove the battery while you are running it on AC and the battery is fully charged? can i remove it while it's on and plugged into AC?
No, that was on older batteries... they have smarter batteries now that don't get that memory effect that easily
Like he said.
just got 256MB upgrade (384 total), and a case. i got a bunch of porn for my opengl fading screen saver too. 1337!
the front left part of the palm rest area (left of trackpad) gets fairly warm during use. does yours do that elb? there is a cooling vent on the left side near the warm area... i wonder what is under there? hard drive?
Yup, gets pretty warm too. I've got 384 Mb too, and haven't had any issues with it not being enough.
Now go get an Airport basestation. Not much beats sitting outside surfing/playing D2.
ima wait for the next gen airport that is supposedly coming out soon.
my sister's gets warm, too. pull the keyboard and see what's there. I'll check mine when I get home. maybe it's the CPU
That's what sucks about my mom's laptop. It's been running on AC power with the battery in so long that it only lasts until halfway through startup if it's not plugged in. Is there a way to drain it so it will work again?
nope, when a battery gets like that you just gotta throw it away and buy a new one... they usually cost $100 or more.
haha! it's a school comp. oh well, if they want to replace the battery, they can. They never told my mom to do the battery removal, so they can pay for it
