Is the Dell XPS One Better than the Apple iMac?

TENxOXR Hmm (627 comments)

My personal choice would fall with the Dell, in that it presents more options than the Mac does *for what I use a computer for*.

I am not saying that the Mac doesn't have its own usefulness, that it is in some way lesser than the Dell, simply that it can't fulfil all the things that I need to accomplish when I use a computer. For that, I'm willing to pay that little bit more.

TENxOXR (1044052) writes ""Video game publishing giant Electronic Arts (EA) is to shed more than 500 jobs, after the firm announced lower than expected profits for the year.

TENxOXR (1044052) writes "An engineer has promised that within a year he will start selling a car that runs on compressed air, producing no emissions at all in town.

The OneCAT will be a five-seater with a glass fibre body, weighing just 350kg and could cost just over £2,500.

It will be driven by compressed air stored in carbon-fibre tanks built into the chassis."

Recording all human knowledge

TENxOXR TENxOXR writes  |  more than 7 years ago

TENxOXR (1044052) writes "UK science fiction writer Charles Stross, author of novels Accelerando and Singularity Sky, posits a future in which all human experience is recorded on devices the size of a grain of sand.

We've had agriculture for about 12,000 years, towns for eight to 10,000 years, and writing for about 5,000 years. But we're still living in the dark ages leading up to the dawn of history."

TENxOXR writes "The French-led Corot mission has taken off from Kazakhstan on a quest to find planets outside our Solar System. The space telescope will monitor about 120,000 stars for tiny dips in brightness that result from planets passing across their faces. The multinational mission will also study the stars directly to uncover more about their interior behaviour. The storey can be found over on the BBC News site ."
