    Well, when you work up an appetite with the rapage, make sure you have some BBQ from Pork on a Fork ( http://www.porkonafork.com/home/ ) across the parking lot.

    A few years ago (2007?), I had a Apple MacBook Pro's battery rapidly expand on my lap, horrible burns.

    I would never get myself an Apple laptop/PC. Complete waste of money in my eyes. Neither would buy myself an iphone, considering I can get something much better for that price.

    I have a 2011 MBP now, and never had any battery or heat issues.

    I asume this means macbook pro?

    Well, I am using windows myself. I have a good spec laptop, that I got for really cheap compared to apple (it's a i5 sandy bridge, 8 gigs of RAM and 1gig external video, working absolutely great and stable). I am still doing some asp.net/c# programming from time to time, thats why I stick with windows. However, if I didn't use it for that, I'd go for Linux. Mac would be the last option.

    Yes.

    Im able to push 7 hours battery and I love the design of the hardware and OS X is one of the best UNIX-based OS's imo, great for PHP.

    Daniel.

  • @Daniel said: Yes.

    You had awfull experience with them, got burned and you still bought their new model?

  • @LiquidHost said: You had awfull experience with them, got burned and you still bought their new model?

    I brought another in 2009, never had an issue.

    Saved up in 2011 and got another with the faster i5's.

    The Unibodys do not have the battery issue, its the models before.

    Didn't the iphones explode as well? :D

    On the other side, around 7 years ago I had to send back a new dell 710m's battery for replacement, cause they were exploding as well.

    Sorry for being nosey but how much did you pay as I'm starting to dislike Windows.

  • @LiquidHost said: Didn't the iphones explode as well? :D

    I used to use iPhones (from 2007 to 2012), but recently moved to Android, and love it.

    Its sad, CPU and screen technology is sky rocketing, yet battery technology can't keep up.

    The one in 2009 was a birthday present, the one in 2011 was £1100. I think there is a gap in the market for some Ubuntu laptops.

    Daniel.

  • Laptop

    Apple calls it a MacBook or Notebook computer - don't think they've used the name laptop since the 90s. :)

    Ya, they can get pretty warm. I hope everyone is okay who has gotten injured.

    Laptop, notebook, etc. are never meant to be used on your lap or sofa, they will get hot very, very easily

    @nabo: That's the new iTable. It's designed to look like a pair of legs, so when you're sitting around a table at a conference, you can be trendy by pretending that you're sitting outside on the quad at Berkeley.

    I know. I'm using Apple hardware since the 90ies next to my Windows machines. That, however, doesn't stop me from making jokes on both sides. Be it Windows, Apple or .. ah, well... my Debian VPSes :-)

    "Kids, you tried your best and failed miserably. The lesson learned is: never try."

  • @Daniel I never knew that! Wow, I would of sued the arse off them. Claim that it impacted your "social" abilities due to being scared of involvement during P.E lessons.

    (Usually wins court favor :'])

    Anyhow, what exactly do you think caused this to fry like that?

    Do you play checkers instead of football @Daniel?

    Who's watching Sweden kick England's ass?

    In other words we have a terrible team, The match against france was pretty even and both had a good chance, I doubt they will be as lucky this time.

  • How 'bout them Saints!

  • @Jacob said: In other words we have a terrible team, The match against france was pretty even and both had a good chance, I doubt they will be as lucky this time.

    Thats because our team does not work as a team, they focus on scoring individual goals for their own ego's.

    @Jacob said: Do you play checkers instead of football @Daniel?

    Everyone knows World of Warcraft is superior to everything.

    Daniel.

  • @Aldryic said: How 'bout them Saints!

    Hmm?

    Daniel.

  • @Daniel said: Hmm?

    I was assuming the Football reference was for Euro Football. Saints are a US Football team... just a little innocent trolling :3
