Fang Talks

Urbia

I am so in love with this laptop.

Like, look at it. That’s so fucking sweet I can’t even begin to stop talking about it.

And you know what? It has a good Intel processor, and AMD Radeon graphics card, so it should be good and doable to run Mac OSX on this badboy.

Intel i7 2.2GHz Quad Core. 8GB SSD mounted to motherboard for super-fast booting of the OS, and ExpressCache technology. AMD Radeon HD graphics-card. Up to 8GB of RAM.
Not to mention the screen. Oh sweet lord Jegus the screen. It’s a notebook designed for a regular 15″ screen. They fit a 15.6″ screen into it by making the bezel super thin. And it’s matte, anti-glare. OH DEAR GOD GIVE ME THIS.

Only little downside is the keyboard layout. It’s kind of off compared to my current keyboard (some special characters such as @ ” and \ are in entirely different places). I do hope this is just a localised thing, and it’ll be “normal” when I buy it. Release date? october 2nd for America. I’ll have to wait ’till the end of October. Bluh.

Found someone who’s also willing to run OSX on it. Asked him to post his findings, experiences, etc. He thought it would be not all that hard, seeing as how the graphics card is the same one as in the current-gen Macbook Pros. The processor is a newer gen, but there’ll be a workaround if it ever causes problems.
Still, I want to know if there’ll be much trouble with the drivers for webcam, trackpad, and so on. Time will tell, I hope.

I’m planning on making three partitions on it. Two smaller ones for Windows and a Linux (Ubuntu, perhaps?), and a bigger one for my main work on Mac OSX. TRIPLE-BOOT AWESOMENESS!

(And to that one person who suggested AlienWare: eww, gaming laptops look hideous.)

    Jay, the 8GB is the processor RAM, not the hard drive storage. Its has 750GB of HDD at 7200rpm.

    I never really liked notebooks because they can’t be upgraded but that machine looks powerful.

    can you upgrade that 8gb ssd? 8gb isn’t a lot. :|

    Yeah, those AlienWare systems do look ugly. I’ve never found them cool looking.

    That sounds like a VERY good laptop. Buy it.

    Yes, get Ubuntu, I’ve never had any problems with it. 11.10 is coming out this month.
