WHAT DO YOU THINK ?
That layout looks pretty damn good to me, i also use a laptop with similar specs and dont get any problems whatsoever, i also run it from a wireless connection, so all in all it would be quite worthy to run sto without any hassles :cool:
Well Time Lords - looks like you have made my mind up. Anyone else, before I jump in there !?
I kind of tribbled all over my keyboard here in the PWE office. My workstation is no where NEAr those specs.
In theory, looks great!
Where are you buying it and how much is it? I want one.
I actually may have to, as i'm currently in the process of emmigrating to another country. or immigrating,m depending on your pov.
but yes, i would go desktop if i could.
Bah, SSD/HDD hybrids are crap.
Tried to look up your 512gb version but found only the 700gb and even that has only a 32gb SSD used as cache.
Insist on a proper SSD, 128GBs are the sweet spot. Smaller ones have much lower write performance.
For the usual media files you can later get an USB external hardrive .
For that amount of doe you really donīt need to gimp the system.
Donīt believe the hybrid marketing garbage, heck donīt even believe me! Just google some tests.
You comp will run STO just fine.. I've had a Hybrid drive for over a year, never had a huge issue. Long as the firmware is updated, you're good to go.
The only issue with hybrids is that they are barely better than normal drives but at a premium cost.
Anybody who hasnīt seen a good SSD in action just canīt participate in the discussion, sorry.
Yes, itīs THAT much of a boon to have a proper SSD as your system drive and have your main game reside there too.
It is a bit tricky to get a WinXP (& to some extent Vista) system running properly on it, but itīs doable with following the right instructions.
Win7 manages it out of the box.
Buying a new system without one is downright self-flagellation.
