    Slap an Apple Logo on them and Steve Jobs can sell them. He sold overpriced laptops for years.

    It would be terrible for apple. Ignoring the fact that it is not white, it is powerful...apples are not powerful...even their "High End Workstation"s are only mid-level gaming PCs.

    Apples are great fruit.
    I understand Steven Jobs.
    He wants total control over every bowl movement and is the curator of the worlds population turd count.

    The fact of the matter is kids/young adults love to give total control some anti-hero and just love Apple running their lives.

    I'm old school. The Amiga is my all time favorite computer.
    Before Jay Minor died who I was friends and the father of the Amiga computer before Commodore destroyed it.

    Jay Minor was the father of the Amiga.......

    Naw I say BBC Micro Model B 32K.

    We do share a common thread though and thats the CBM64 which also used 6502 Cpu.

    The days of machine code programming many a wet winters night - Halcyon days!

    Now all we have is bloatware 5 generation so called programming languages - pah humbug.

    Html =- programming?
    Naw

    Would you like to underclock your overclock to a better clock than your current clock??

    THAT IS THE QUESTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    LOL at this thread :D

    Surely underclocking your overclock would bring you back to no-overclock or underclock?

    Personally i prefer my grandfather clock but thats just my preference!

    Ah yes, but if the laptop is overheating wouldn't the underclock be better for it?? Grandfather clock: Pretty sure thats my sisters laptop because it is so slow! :p

    I doubt underclocking would do any good you would have to lower the voltage to get much of a noticeable heat reduction.

    He could have an appliation hogging the cpu like setiteam used to do - it was designed to use 100% cpu.

    Doubt he has looked at the cpu util though!
    Probably a virus!
    lol

    Some folks do under clock their PC's
    To much speed? No they think the PS and all components will last longer.
    With that mindset, I'm sure they have an IBM XT with a five meg full height MFM hard drive.
    which cost ~3k in the day..

    I paid $55.00 a meg for Static column RAM when upgrading my old Amiga 3000.

    I have 12 gigs of DDR3 in my current configuration.
    Do the math

    Not really a gamer except for auto racing proggies. Used to race my real Mustang Cobra open tracking. Sold it, now my need for speed is computer controlled.

    i7 920 @3.44GHz on a daily basis. Gigabyte EX58 Extreme, NVidia 295GTX. Old but still very powerful.

    Underclocking allows for lower voltages. Lower voltages allow for longer battery life. In the case of a basic laptop used for simple things like spreadsheets and email, this can be a great advantage when the slowest processors are far more than needed. Realistically, underclocking is far more appropriate for a laptop like LightXxX has than overclocking...assuming it supported either, that is.

    Excuse me but what exactly what do you mean by "I popped open the thing and i got a laptop Cooler for it..."? Don't laptops just sit on these types of coolers? I use one that plugs into a usb port and has three fans in it. I can't say it helps or not, but it has never overheated.

    The guy needs a desktop. Locked up tight so he can't lay his fingers on.

    The chameleon of threads.
    Mean what you say, say what you mean.

    It's more than obvious he has pirated software and is unwilling to to give up after spending zero dollars for software.
