although it's speculation, is it safe to say the pricepoint will be higher than the orig ipad?


very unlikely. apple tends to stay at or below the previous asking price.

Even though there's no retina display, the iPad 2 is pretty sweet. To cop or to hold out for iPad 3?

After seeing the whole unveiling, it kind of comes off as, meh. Its thin and there are cameras, but they just kind of seem like a stopgap on the way to something better, more like ipad 1.5

i copped this dude's super clean ipad off craigslist for the low low. I don't know why people are complaining about the ipad 2 though. what the fuck else do you want? The only updates I can think of are:
more harddrive obviously
more ram
sd card slot but i heard that's never going to happen
removable battery

after that all they can do is change the design.

nah those rumors are nixed for now because Steve Jobs called 2011 "the year of iPad 2" which mean iPad 3 won't come until next year like usual.

Is the glare on the glossy macbook screens really that bad? I'm trying to decide whether I should get a glossy or anti-glare screen.

It doesn't bother me. Just tilt the screen until it's gone. Plus the white border on the anti glare screens kills the whole look imo tongueface

Pulling the trigger on a low end glossy 15" SSD. The anti-glare model looks way too similar to my old Sony.

So I got a macbook pro 15" around Christmas time, and just recently today I had some display problems where Red/Green flickering pixel appeared all over my screen. I mean I fixed it by smacking the bottom of it a few times, I assumed to counter it was to do the same shit that happened to it, shot off the front seat when and old fuck didn't stop on the redlight when I had a green left. Is this a normal impact problem, or should I be worried some hardware is lose?

Also a friend of mine inherited a Macbook g4 not to long ago, and I was wondering if anyone knows how to get through the admin account, we have the name just no password. I know a little of the whole root screen, and was able to create an alternative Administration account, but still unable to access the files on the other administration account.

Quick question.

Thinking of buying the new 15" MBP 2.0ghz, not going to be using it for too much gaming, but could it at least support StarCraft2? Don't know much about this stuff.

Also looking @ a 2009 15.4" Macbook Pro 2.8ghz, 500gb hd for $1250 OBO

What do you think?

Thanks.
