hardware

Choosing the right equipment is a struggle which is better, faster, etc. Every time I hunt for new toys, places like this one would come indispensible how else am I to make a conscious choice? OK, so here is a bit of input from my side hope this helps those in need :)

I was asked recently - why the hell do i waste time doing stuff like this? 2 answers - it helps me to fully understand what my hardware is capable of (and what I can expect), and a payback to the society (i downloaded hundreds of megs of testing material before i got my gear).

a bit more on the technicalities (i just hate tests without details - just lack the scientific and objective merit!).
