Re: Tell me about netbooks

I severely doubt they could let you try a new one, as it would have to be set up. I think it would be easier for them to unlock the PC on display from the demo screen, and then let you try it. If you want to gauge the weight, they should be able to get the display PC's battery, and put it in for yo...

That is Suffolk County Council's logo - nothing special, but not too bad either.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

http://up.metropol247.co.uk/bilky%20asko/NYCC.png My County Council's logo - I'd say it's pretty nice. Nice, but confusing on first site. Normally I get logos right away eg, the fed-ex logo but I thought that the two large letters were a "g". I must be the complete opposite to you - I've always got...

Re: Tell me about netbooks

The problem with checking them at the shop is that usually in PC World and John Lewis, they're either running a Flash app which you can't exit or the user has a password. The other thing to be wary of in shops is that the ones on display don't have batteries, therefore you can't really gauge size, ...

Re: Mac vs. PC

I tried a Mac for few days once. On the fourth day, it crashed. Well, that's reliability for you. Conclusive. What did you do after? I disagree. It isn't conclusive.

British National Party: 66%
UK Independence Party: 62%
Liberal Democrats: 43%
Green Party: 37%
Labour Party:35%
Conservative Party: 34%

Therefore, the closest party I could vote for would be the Lib Dems, in my constituency.
