  1. New Apple Devices - Keynote

    Just watch how 4K+ prices will drop by $1000 in a year...
  2. 10.9.5 Update killed my sound

    Updating did the same to me, I fixed it by re-installing the same kext. It's simple.
  3. Depends, if you use a little more resource demanding programs or you multitask a lot, the 8GB will increase performance. If you don't think you need the 8GB, don't get it. You can always upgrade if you think 4GB isn't enough.
  4. I would suggest you drop the 4460 to a 4440 or 4430 and use the extra money for 8GB of memory if you want that.
  5. 30 / 32 inch monitor

    I mean like this, 100% means normal size, and at normal size, an icon will be 64x64. At 200% the icon will be doubled in vertical and horizontal resolution being 128x128 pixels. A 4K display at 200% dpi will have the same workspace as a 1080p display at 100%
  6. 30 / 32 inch monitor

    The 4K under HiDPI option if it's at 200% should give you as clear text as the retina macbook pro so if you are going to save money for an IPS 4K monitor at 32 inches, you will get clearer detail. I think the 10.9.3 update did bring much more native support for 4K Displays. Also there's a dell 24 inch IPS 4K monitor if you don't mind smaller screen size, it's much cheaper: http://www.amazon.com/UltraSharp-Monitor-UP2414Q-PremierColor-warranty/dp/B00HX9ZULU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1404654186&sr=8-1&keywords=dell+4k+monitor+24 And if a 4K monitor is your final decision, make sure you have displayport cables because through DVI or HDMI, you can't drive 4K past 30hz.
  7. 30 / 32 inch monitor

    Sorry if I didn't explain it clear enough but the 4K 28 inch displays you are talking about use TN panels. TN panels have much less color accuracy and contrast compared to IPS panels. You can buy the 4K displays if you don't mind the reduced color range and lower contrast. But if you care for color accuracy and contrast or whatever, I recommend you get the 34 inch LG monitor. It's pretty much the same pixel count if not a little more than the 15 inch retina macbook pro.
  8. 30 / 32 inch monitor

    I've seen a lot of new 28 inch 4K displays. There is a 4K 28 inch panel that was made however, as of now, all the 28 inch 4K displays are the same TN panel. You can enable HiDPI and have clear fonts but I recommend you don't but those panels, there is more to displays than resolution. TN LCD panels usually suffer in contrast and color accuracy. IPS displays will give you a more vibrant and accurate color with deeper black levels. TN Panels do have better response time for gaming but if your looking for quality, I advise you stay away from those. I advise you buy the dell or some other 30 inch 1600p IPS panel with wide gamut turned off unless you need to use it for photo editing. Also check out this monitor: http://www.amazon.com/LG-Electronics-34UM95-34-Inch-LED-Lit/dp/B00JR6GCZA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1404607232&sr=8-1&keywords=lg+34+inch It's a 3440x1440 monitor and is also IPS. However, it is slightly more expensive then the dell if you are willing to pay the extra money. It also has extremely light anti-glare coating, it could be considered as a "glossy" display as opposed to the dell which has pretty high anti glare coating. It has more 1 million more pixels for more detail and sharper fonts then the dell but it is a very wide monitor if you think you would be fine with the very wide aspect ratio.
  9. 30 / 32 inch monitor

    They will look the same unless you enable HiDPI mode which basically makes everything look bigger without loss in resolution. If so, you will see a very clear difference between 1080p and QHD which will look like a "retina" display. If you don't enable HiDPI, then you will have more space to work with. Since the dell is a little smaller, it will have sharper detail with a higher resolution aswell. And the IPS display will have better and more accurate colors opposed to the VA display on the BenQ. The dell also has a wider color space which won't be too useful 99.9% of the time unless you like oversaturated colors. I would recommend the dell overall.
  10. OS X 10.10 Yosemite unveiled

    Um don't you get what I mean? I mean that it should look like a photograph instead of a cartoon. The UI should match with what it's doing, game center USED To look like a casino table, calender USED TO look like a real calender, Notes USED to look like legal yellow lined paper? And iOS 7 maybe does have slight skeuomorphism but it rarely has it, it's just plain white everywhere. I've seen people give an excuse saying that we are familiar with computers and we don't need everything to look skeuomorphic so people can identify what it is because we all know what it is right now. But how is that an excuse to make everything look like a cartoon? I mean it wasn't that hard to tell what a button is without making it look like one. I honestly think even if people are moving to flat designs, they should atleast give an option to revert back to the skeuomorphic UI

    It isn't realistic. It should look realistic.
  12. OS X 10.10 Yosemite unveiled

    It looks ugly. Steve Jobs designed the original OS-X interface as skeumorphic for a reason, yosemite is just plain out flat and boring. Using a boring flat design is like going back to the 90s and 80s when computers had those flat non-skeumorphic designs. They should at least offer us an option to use the old UI or the new (ugly) UI. A Flat 2D UI is nothing but a useless trend.
  13. What antivirus do you use on your Windows?

    None, I play dangerous
  14. OS-X Installation stuck at gray screen

    Already tried that, and I tried niresh's mavericks which worked easily.
