Re: How noisy is it?


Sorry, I missed that out in rhe review. During day to day work its silent. Doing compiling or rendering it does get a bit noisy but its still a whisper and you could have a conversation in hushed tones and have no problem.

I think it's a sad day. Now the internet will be a shiny polished ad for "look, this is the true me" whilst anything else is washed away under threat of being taken to court. It's Facebook all over again in terms of "Look, this is my real life" where in reality it is anything but.

I disagree. If he was convicted of financial naughtyness and he still involved in the financial sector, it calls into question his character, rehabilitated or not.

If we do allow all these links to be removed then we are only really getting one side of a story where an individual can effectively "manage the truth",

I wont deal with them since they burnt me badly (not literally) on a duff iphone. From that day I still go there to look at the tech but if a sales droid approaches I decline and buy it online.

Their loss as I was one of those consumers who would buy things quite regularly. No longer. They cant go out of business soon enough for me.
