The 256GB Samsung 830 is the bargain of the moment. 140 for the notebook kit on Scan (notebook kit just comes with a USB-SATA adaptor, still the same drive). Without a doubt the drive to buy.

The ability to have more real estate as an option is of course great, but how it looks at 1920x1200 we'll have to see. The biggest issue with the HiDPI displays is that you either increase the...

Oh, you mean that you're simply setting static IPs for permanent machines? That's obvious enough if that's the case, unless I'm missing the point.

Ah, so it's at least partially based around the weaknesses of the router? I'll have a further read around. Thanks for this :)

Do you have any evidence to support this? An IP address is just that, an address. Once connected, whether via DHCP or using a static IP, there shouldn't be any difference in performance.

It is possible to backup pretty easily through Steam.

Good functionality IMO, but not really a big feature. The appeal is obvious, however!

As everybody has said, not worth it unless you do tons of writes, which is where a new SSD will show its advantages. Otherwise, no point at all.
