[QUOTE=coolcolors;2607164]That is the price for power users. Laptops don’t use alot of power wait let’s rephrase that a power hungry laptop will use just ask much power then the regular computing laptop and how you would come to the conclusion that a high end laptop doesn’t use alot of power makes me wonder what specs are you reviewing???[/QUOTE]
Have you ever hear anything about power consumption minimisation? Laptop components, including electronics components inside laptops are specially designed for lower power consumption. Because laptop has to work from battery, no matter how long. Is it 30 minutes or 3 hours, it has to work from battery.
And it is here, have look on Eon17, it is based on Clevo X7200 barebone laptop. Only set back is that for dual GTX580M you’ll need 2 300W power supplies.
[QUOTE=coolcolors;2607164]You can do the same with desktop as well they now have LCD screens which reduce the luggage weight as well. So this is a no starter to begin with. Ever hear of LAN conventions…and see how many laptops vs desktop there are showing up there…[/QUOTE]
Fine buy me if you like wonder around with 2 rucksacks, one on front and other on back. Because second rucksack you going need for cables, battery and power inverter.
I rather use 1 rucksack and fire my laptop up when I want and where I want.
[QUOTE=coolcolors;2607164]Nothing comes without sacrifices especially in power users laptop or desktop. Those going for power already know what they want regardless of the electric bills if not they will be in for a surprise.[/QUOTE]
If you like “suck” nuclear power station dry, without knowing what you actually doing or how things do work. Just help you self.
[QUOTE=coolcolors;2607164]And if you didn’t a expect a former hardcore gamers to reply back you must be mistaken. To experience the full richness of a game one has to push the limits of the hardware for full enjoyments.[/QUOTE]
Oh man, you are so clueless.
Any big richness difference between 70FPS and 100FPS?
I’ll give you free history lesson about power consumption during computerisation.
Commodore C64 took 50W, now days multi core processors with hundreds of millions transistors consume same much power.
First XT’s where based on 74 series TTL (Transistor to Transistor Logics) and they draw insane 500W. Very quickly engineers come out with less and less power hungry transistors.
[li]74 - the “standard TTL” logic family had no letters between the “74” and the specific part number.[/li][li]74L - Low power (compared to the original TTL logic family), very slow[/li][li]H - High speed (still produced but generally superseded by the S-series, used in 1970s era computers)[/li][li]S - Schottky (obsolete)[/li][li]LS - Low Power Schottky[/li][li]AS - Advanced Schottky[/li][li]ALS - Advanced Low Power Schottky[/li][li]F - Fast (faster than normal Schottky, similar to AS)[/li][/ul]
Until most logic chips (including processors and video cards) got moved to CMOS field effect transistors.
That’s why 386 times computers power consumption dropped to 150-200W.
And with Pentiums power consumption went up again because more and more transistors got added in to CPU’s and GPU’s.
