  1. Advice for new laptop purchase

    hey guys, these days I'm not using my main desktop pc much anymore besides research / browsing / watching shows/movies and basic music recording, not looking to spend too much (around 1k max), just want something fairly slim / compact and preferably with an SSD. I was thinking of either getting a 2nd hand macbook pro with an SSD or the below "windows" laptops; http://www.officeworks.com.au/retail/products/Technology/Computers/Laptops/Performance-Laptops/SYS400CA http://www.officeworks.com.au/retail/products/Technology/Computers/Laptops/Everyday-Laptops/SYNP530U3C are these windows laptops actually equipped with an SSD or is it just an express cache on the HDD? cheers!
  2. Advice for new laptop purchase

    ^ Correct Chappy, it's actually quite difficult finding a decent laptop and I believe a lot of these so called "SSDs" are just quick cached portioned HDDs and not true SSD's. As discussed above I'll be using it mainly for browsing/emails and basic music recording (not full on production just recording ideas/sessions), I might look into a one/two year old macbook pro with an actual SSD as performance wise these are quite good and have used them for music recording in the past. Not too keen on Windows 8 at the moment either Chappy...

  8. Counter-Strike Global Offensive

    Hey guys, Any here going to be pre-ordering CS:GO? Out August 22nd - if you pre-order now you save 10%. I was a big fan of CS 1.3-1.6 and played it for years but have lost interest since source came out, what are your thoughts?

  11. steveP's training log

    Well done on your squats dude I felt the same way, was always a bit chicken to try heavier weights until a friend in the gym said I should be able to push a lot more and now have gone from 80kg squats to 115kg within a few weeks! Hoping to be at 120kg next week Where abouts are you training atm?
  12. Hey guys, Thought it would be good to start a thread where you can share what good finds you've discovered at the shops specifically for bodybuilding and hopefully we will all get some benefit of trying some new foods. Bodybuilding.com forums has a lot of great food ideas but unfortunately a lot of the items arent available here hence this thread. To start off I'll go with these; Nestle skinny cow ice cream biscuits - low cals / good protein + fiber Woolworths brand oats - cheap and good quality
  13. Counter-Strike Global Offensive

    Don't really enjoy CS GO still similar to Source, very random gameplay, hitboxes are rubbish and recoil is terrible as well. Map designs need to be revamped imo the way the game is currently, it will never be a serious competitive shooter it will end up the same as Source did. This doesn't come anywhere near what CS 1.6 is I hope CS Pro mod comes through with the goods soon and we can all switch to that.
  14. Google Fiber

  15. Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone here works in container shipping / terminal operations? I'm currently working for a shipping line in the vessel ops but looking to possibly venture out into the terminal side. How did you get into terminal operations? Any qualifications / etc? Cheers
  16. Anyone working in shipping / terminal operations?

  20. Samsung Galaxy S III

    Easiest way is to do it in gmail on your computer, or you just tap the little face picture on your phone. Hmm I've tried tapping the face picture in the contacts screen but it doesn't do anything will try gmail Ahh I've found the problem, it has to be saved to your phone to be able to add a picture to it - cheers
