I feel th exact opposite. Used laptops for years and now I have a desktop with 64gb of memory, 4k video with 34 Inch 4k monitor, 2 solid state disks and 1 2tb disk. I need it for heavy work which I can never get from a laptop.
You in CAD or Graphic design? Sounds meaty.

Resolution depends on graphic card but I think at the time it was 1600 x something.

It was so I could see screen from back of the garden. :whistling
However, I now live in a shoe so no longer required. I meant one could do if one wanted to.


With respect to lights and screens, they operate at different brightness and wavelength frequency. When shopping I'm usually effected by all the different lighting in shops. Does my head in along with the crowds and ambient noise that prevails in these inhumane places.

Point is if you use different brand screens with different brightness settings, without knowing you may be effected by them which could subsequently affect your trading - who knows?

You should rest your eyes by looking at horizons. Give your head a rest too. (y)
eliminating the bezel is never a bad thing for the chart trader. some traders (very few i imagine) look at hard data crossing the desk, place trades accordingly. i am not one of them, give me a good LARGE chart... :)

i'm on board once the tv's get above 4K..10K!

I have a big data environment (10 virtual servers) being hosted on it for development work.
AWS is strongly recommended for dev work. Turn it on, turn it off. Probably different if its for personal biz but for business good value imo.

Hopefully, you have enough processing power to crunch those xls numbers eh?

All the best (y)

Here is an interesting article about making tidal electricity in NI at Strangford Loch.
Would it work in the Severn Estuary I wonder.

Let's hope it is better than the crappy C5

:LOL:

Looks like an electric bike to me which ofcourse it is with an extra wheel. Best part is it's covered from the elements so can see with improvement in batteries this has some mileage.

I like it. One needs to define a target market to sell it really. (y)
