    I hate those all-in-one anythings...

    For Apple, if something breaks, like a web cam, you have to take the whole thing to get it fixed.

    But I didn't read the entire article... is Microsoft getting into the PC making business? O.o

    One's inner self
    this will most likely be out in 2013 but as Microsoft are worried about the no.13 they will probably wait till 2014, or rush it out for the end of 2012 (hopefully not doing the same as they did with vista)

    i can see it basically like Kinect on top of windows 7 but abit more shine and speed to it

    [​IMG]

    Then it's time for me to say :yaysteamonlinux:
    And get a real computer, and run some linux distro on it.

    Cmon, I use Windows because that "Design computers" macfagstuff are gay.
    And then this.

    It now stops BSoD by shutting down the computer just before it happens.

    Not sure how late (or early) in Vista's lifespan it was when I first heard about plans for 7, so I don't know if it was around this far in or later.

    Think DSi then DSi XL then 3DS. The time difference between them is so little I think we have already entered the time where anything becomes obsolete in less than couple months

    Microsoft could do the same thing as Nintendo.

    If this is real (I highly doubt it), then depending on how it was obtained, Microsoft could shut the source (well, the source of the source) down.
