I both agree and disagree. It is good to encourage people to learn before they buy, but this is hardly a good way to make people learn. It also makes the naming scheme completely obsolete - the...

@SchizoFrog
I agree about the whole "x" thing. But intel is notorious for AWFUL product names. Pentium, Celeron, Xeon, and Itanium were excellent names, but have been living for over 20 years...

Seriously people.... it isn't that hard to add your own dust filters. If something like this can make or break a case to you, you have weird priorities. That's like down-voting a case because it...

Actually... that's a pretty good point. At least then you could divide all the 3.1 ports into 3.0 ports.

In this day and age, people aren't going to be using external 3.5" drives much longer. And like I said, as this article has shown, you're still probably going to need an aux power source anyway.

I think the problem is MS sells Windows RT as Windows, yet it doesn't work with [traditional/x86] Windows software even though it looks, acts, and is called "Windows". So people bought it thinking...

Great performance, but I still don't quite fully understand the point of USB 3.1. If I really wanted that much performance for external drives, I'd either use Thunderbolt or eSATA. You could argue...

Considering the game takes place on Phobos, gravity shouldn't be much of a factor. I figure the only real challenge is having enough "pockets" to store all the weapons.
