Oh yeah. Movies/videos are definitely the most space-consuming of all media. Tons of pictures in their own rights. You said they're all in 1080p also? Yeah, that's a killer. Of course, you know this for sure (it IS your computer after all). Question is, how are you going to fix this? External HDD, new internal HDD, or delete a lot of stuff forever?
Also, off topic... If your computer is full off of your own things, I kinda wonder how much media a website like YouTube is filled with... Probably thousands of terabytes already. Wow. Sorry, off topic thought.
*mindstretch.jpg* (yeah, I don't know if that even exists, whatevs)
It hurts to think of the Youtube data usage...The co-founder of a fiber-optics company in my area came to my high school's career day, and it was a stretch to even start to comprehend the amount of data floating around, not to mention the bandwidth...Sorry, I'm off topic too. And babbling.
Oh man. You had to mention bandwidth... That is not a force to be reckoned with. Millions of users almost every 10 minutes would literally kill an average website. I don't even know how to guess the amount of data that's streamed every living minute of YouTube. The people of Google must get paid a lot.
Wow, quite normal for today's users, but to me, it's all too greedy, I'm still with 480p when it comes to movies. But images, maximum 3000p for vectors and regular artworks are 1080p. Sound wise, 48khtz is fine but my minimum favorite is 44khtz, anything beyond 48 is kind of ridiculous.
Speaking of ridiculous, don't you think quad core is kind of overkill on mobile devices these days? Even I find the Galaxy S3 is hard to swallow. All of these stuff are meant for games and full HD movies, but HD movies are best watch on bigger screens like those of monitors and TVs, tablets and smartphones are just ridiculous when their physical screen size is kind of small!
I also find the iPad 3's quad core ridiculous too which in the end, heat up the iPad pretty hot and bad. If I would to buy it, I'll take iPad 2 is enough. But I don't really need it anyways, if I would to go for a tablet if I assume to get one, I'll take the Transformer TF300 from Asus like my brother did.
It doesn't get super hot actually. Time to time it gets warm but it isn't "omg my device is going to die!" . I on the other hand, is loving the quad core feature on the graphics. My painting apps are actually taking advantage of it and I'm getting a lot more flexibility and higher resolution options to paint with. Those features aren't enabled with the dual core. Also, since I jailbreak with a bunch of visual tweaks, it isn't slow on that anymore. That's a plus.
I know is not that hot, but it just doesn't feel right when other customers complain. Moreover, when it's too hot, it'll degrade its lifespan a lot faster than normal. And it's even worse when it's made in China. Nvidia did get an embarrassing "defeat" when the A5X kicked their Tegra 3's butt, but it won't compare against the companion core & iPad 3's overheating weakness, kind of like both lose but win at the same time. Still, I wonder if any hacker still can jailbreak the processor so it'll tone down (or underclock) the whole temperature problems and make it as equivalent to the iPad 2's but without compromising too much performance.
WHOW! You jailbreak it? I didn't expect that. Well, I'm glad you're free from Apple's evil grip. I may hate Apple products, but I love those which are already jailbroken (But not as much as Android ones which I love more).
haha, I just like the tweaks they do in the jailbreak community. Like this recent one [link] . It makes it act like a traditional desktop computer with multiple windows working with each other side by side. It doesn't matter what cool features other manufactures makes, within days some developer will duplicate it, I love that.
Disabling or clocking down the gpu will hurt the screen. Since the pixel density is so enormous it does require a more powerful gpu to run it. Its interesting, to have a 10" device and knowing that the screen can overfill my 24" monitor. haha so weird.
Speaking of Android. Are you getting the Galaxy S III ? I heard that its currently the TOP phone of androids...well, at least for this month haha
and im thinking of upgrading my pc tower amd 8 core 3.1 processor, 16gb ram 1333 mhz, a very good graphics card, ssd 512 gb for my system and a tb hdd for storage then ill have a very good pc and hope fully it should start up in 10 seconds flat
60.4 GB/283 GB left here. I couldn't even store just your movies on this thing. Jeez. I only have 6.35 GB of pony, and ~5.5GB of that is episodes. Would most of that 20 GB also happen to be episodes? They do seem to take up a lot of space. which is totally worth it
