same capacity, but of different price

Question: same capacity, but of different price

In a window shopping, I saw some HDDs with same capacity, brandname, rpm, but they are of different prices.1. Maxtor IEEE1394,7200rpm, 300GB: US$ 2002. Maxtor Serial ATA,7200rpm, 300GB: US$ 703. Maxtor UDMA100, 7200, 300GB: US$ 97Could someone tell me what makes the differences in the price?The second item seems very resonable. Should I take it?

Ok, so I bought my Yoga 910 (4k/i7/16gb/512ssd) just a few days ago and, besides the fan noise (which I am currently working on) as well as recently discovering the issue I am about to discuss, I absolutely LOVE this machine! It is a workhorse and the build quality is amazing. That's saying a lot coming from a previous Mac user... Anyway, I was looking around today while trying to get the fan issue resolved and I noticed that the Full Charge Capacity (FCC) of the battery is only 75410mwh, while the actual Designed Capacity is meant to be 78000mwh. It is about a 4% performance decrease basically right out of the box, is that normal? I only ask because I originally bought the FHD/i7/8gb/256ssd version, before exchanging it for the upgraded unit due to liking it so much, and noticed that the FCC on the original one was actually 80102mwh, quite a bit higher than the designed capacity. Not sure if there is a setting preventing the PC to charge to the full amount or what? Maybe I just got a battery with lower ratings? Any help would be MUCH apppreciated!

I have an X230 with 6 cell battery. The OS is Windows 8. I've noted that the design capacity and full charge capacity are both lower with 9 cycle counts. The design capacity is 57720mWh and the full charge capacity is 57420mWh while these two figures should be 62160mWh for the new battery. I know that the full charge capacity will be reduced after use while I have two questions: 1. Considering there are only 9 charging cycle, now the figure are too low for the full cycle charge. It means 7.6% loss after 9 cycle charge. It is so ridiculous. 2. Why the design capacity is reduced? Is it should not be changed, right? I noticed a knowledge base lead abt the design capacity. http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/T400-T500-and-newer-T-series/Design-Capacity-appears-to-be-changing-on-m... While my OS is Windows 8, there is no Power Manager, so I can not understand the explanation exactly and do not know how to recovery the battery. Pls kindly check my questions and help me to figure it out, thanks!

Answer:Battery design capacity and full charge capacity are lower

I could think of one reason why it might be like that. Lenovo might have artificially limited the max full capacity of the battery in the batterypack firmware (it was suprising to me that battery also has its own firmware!) so that there is never a overcharge on one of the cells inside the battery pack. I've seen this in a Toshiba Portege R835 laptop too. It's nearly impossible to have exact same capacity for each cells (called cell balancing), so when you try to charge a batterypack with 95% charge all the way up to 100%, one cell might already have reached its 100% (this is the inferior cell) while one cell is only at 90% (this is the superior cell). The batterypack will try to keep charging all the cells resulting in overcharge for the inferior cell and degrade it even more quickly. By limiting the maximum capacity to less than 100%, it helps prolong the battery life, and similar effect can also be achieved using using the PowerManager tool in Windows 7 by restricting the charge threshold (configure the setting so it stops charging at 90% for example). I don't know why they don't create a Windows 8 version though. So in Windows 8 what I do is add a registry key which limits the max charge capacity. This needs to be done only once, but if you ever see it behaving differently, then you could re-add the registry key and it should work again.  Below is a .reg file that I use to set the battery charge only starts at 70% and stop at 90%. Windows Registry...

I am going to buy  new battery for my Dell xps  L502x early 2011 15 inch laptop  which came with 6 cell battery.
I want to know if dell supports 9 cell battery in my laptop
And should I buy batteries manufactured in 2014
Does dell stoped  manufacturing the battery for this model.  I would prefer 2016  manufactured battery

Answer:Dell xps L502x battery manufactured with date 2014 will have same capacity in 2017 or does it loose some power holding capacity

Hi JAYESH GHARAT,
The 502x supports both 6cell and 9cell batteries. Kindly find the specifications here - http://dell.to/2iVELAQ- see page# 98.
The 502x is considered obsolete and I am not sure if the batteries are available with Dell any longer. 
You could contact our team to get a quote for a battery if available - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ
You could alternatively order the parts here - http://bit.ly/2jgRfQ6 or through other 3rd party online stores or local stores.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.

I have lenovo workstation w530 9 cell laptop . it is now 4 years old nowI observed that rcently that battery is draining so fastly.Did a battery guage reset in lenovo settings.it says that "Battery status is good"and shown in green color. Full charge capacity : 38.34Whvoltage 12.26vwattage 9.44WTemp 32 ccycle count 418design capacity is 93.6Whdesign voltage 11.1v I didn't understand why so difference between full charge and design charge. Is my battery in really good or need a change.Can someone please help me out.













Solved!

Go to Solution.

Answer:W530 full charge capacity is much less than design capacity

"Good" means it is unlikely to completely fail very soon. The electronics indicate that the cells are all working. However, battery cells have a limited life and they slowly deteriorate as they are used and recharged over and over. It is just wearing out. The reset is unlikely to help. The "fix" is to replace it. Be sure you get one that is designed for the T430/T530/W530. The earlier ones (T420, etc.) are the same size, but they won't work. Avoid aftermarket ones. I think they are junk.

Today, the price of gold sits around $1660/fine ounce, maybe Huawei should put their E173 and E220 drivers on wall st. The price per unit would surely surpass that of gold before the close of trade.
On the Vodacom website there are two downloads for the E220, a pc software for vodafone and a VMC update for the dashboard. I downloaded and installed the software for Vodafone onto the laptop, and thereafter dowloaded and updated the E220 with the VMCLite_E220_3_2_1_156_standard program.

Not adjusted for inflation I could buy today: Core i7 3770K, 16GB RAM, GeForce 660 Ti, 120GB SSD + 2TB HDD, IPS 1080p monitor, decent gaming keyboard and mouse.

I'm afraid I have very bad news.Virut is a polymorphic file infector with IRCBot functionality which infects .exe, .scr files, downloads more malicious files to your system, and opens a back door that compromises your computer. With this particular infection, the safest solution and only sure way to remove it effectively is to reformat and reinstall the OS. According to this Norman White Paper Assessment of W32/Virut, some variants can infect the HOSTS file and block access to security related web sites. Other variants of virut can even penetrate and infect .exe files within compressed files (.zip, .cab, rar). The Virux variant is an even more complex file infector which can embed an iframe into the body of web-related files and infect script files (.php, .asp, .htm, .html, .xml ). When Virut creates infected files, it also creates non-functional files that are corrupted beyond repair and in some instances can disable Windows File Protection. In many cases the infected files cannot be disinfected properly by your anti-virus. When disinfection is attempted, the files become corrupted and the system may become irreparable. The longer virut remains on a computer, the more critical system files will become infected and corrupt so the degree of infection can vary. The virus disables Windows File Protection by injecting code into the "winlogon.exe" process that patches system code in memory.CA Virus detail of W32/VirutThe virus has a number of bugs in its code, and as...

Question: Upgrade price

Apparently when you buy video cards from EVGA they extend a 90 day upgrade only price for new cards, so i was thinking in 2 months upgrading my 6800GT i just got with maybe a 7800 GT or GTX, is the upgrade WORTH the extra price (roughly 200 i think (have to confirm this will later tonight) ) to get the new card, or will it perform at roughly the same as my 6800?

the rest of my new rig is 2 gigs of ram, a8n-e MoBo, 3800+ X2 AMD, and a 160 SATA seagate hard drive.

Thanks guys for all the help

(BTW my 6800GT was roughly 275) Thanks guys.

Hi all,

I'm currently looking into buying a new server for the company I'm interning at. The issue is I'm somewhat clueless about IT in general, so I'm concerned an offer I've received for a Dell PowerEdge T430 server which I've pasted below is a rip off. The price I've been quoted is $4020,10.

Here are the specs:
"Server Dell PowerEdge T430 8B, (1)*Intel Xeon E5-2630v4 Processor (2.2GHz, 10C, 25MB, 8.0GT/s QPI, 85W), 32GB (2x16GB) 2400MHz RDIMM, PERC H330, DVD+/-RW, (2)*1TB SATA 6Gbps 7.2k 3.5" HD Hot Plug (up to 8x3.5"HDD), Broadcom 5720 GbE Dual Port on board, IDRAC8 Ent., (2)*750W, No Rails, 3y NBD"

Any advice would be very much appreciated!

Also if it helps the initial uses of the server would be secure data storage, hosting an email service for 12 staff members, and if possible setting up a hybrid disaster recovery solution, for instance linking the service to a cloud based service like Microsoft Azure.

If anyone out there can suggest a cheaper and viable alternative that would be ace!

Best regards,

James

Question: Get Gold Price

Hi there people, is there any way, using vba, that I can download the latest gold price from this specific site:
http://www.kitco.com/gold_currency/index.html?currency=zar&timePeriod=d&flag=gold&otherChart=no

and show the results in a workbook, sheet name "Admin". I would like to show the gold price as at 09:00(GMT) every morning (the workbook will be open).
I would appreciate any ideas, John.
 

Answer:Get Gold Price

it doesn't look like it
you would have to contact them and ask
They do have free links to embed charts etc on your website http://www.kitconet.com/ so you might be able to embed that html code into your excel sheet, but it looks like what you are after would need to be paid for.

hi
i want to buy windows 7 64bit to install it on my new computer

whats the difference between these 2 operating systems?

1.- Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64BIT Operating System Software - OEM DVD - $150.00

2.- Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Operating System Software - English, DVD - $300.00

does the second one have 64BIT and 32BIT both or why is there such difference between the price?

Answer:price for windows 7 pro

Hi -

Not sure where the exact terminology came from or why one contains "English"; the other does not. One says x64, etc...

One thing that I do see clearly in the 1st - "OEM" = Original Equipment Manufacturer (Dell, HP, etc...). An OEM version of Windows 7 contains the OS + OEM added "features" - the garbage pre-installed software, trial versions, etc... An OEM version dies with the system it came installed on.

I suggest that you purchase a full retail version of Windows 7. A full retail version can be transfered to another system - in other words... you own the copy for life.

From Microsoft --> http://www.microsoft.com/windows/buy/default.aspx

Happy Holidays !

i was thinking of buying a new graphic card and i was looking at two

the X800 xl and the 6600GT

i was looking at the 6600gt becuase i want to save money, is there a GIANT difference between these two cards or is the x800 the one to go

Answer:price or perfomance

I let you decide if it worth it or not and just give you the graphs






Throw out low and high to get a good average and we find that pretty much dead on you getting a average of around 15 more fps with the x800XL over the 6600GT. This makes the x800XL a significant better card then the 6600GT. Is it worth the extra money for that performance increase is up to you.

It is important to note that the x800xl of corse does better on games ATI good at but even in the games nvidia is usually better at the x800XL still does better then geforce 6600GT.

One thing you could do is check for similar items selling in your area on ebay or craigslist and price your system comparably.

This according to my Paper this morning.A price war over the cost of high-speed internet connection is likely to break out after one company slashed the cost of its broadband access.UK Online has become the first internet service provider to drop its monthly charge to below £10. The company now charges £9.99 per month - down from £19.99.Dylan Armbrust, editor of Computer Active magazine, said its rivals were now likely to follow suit.It didn't say what speed you get for that, or whether there were any limits.Ufortunately, My postcode and phone number comes up with:Sorry! We cannot provide any broadband services to this postcode / phone number.So, maybe not a price war after all?

Hey folks.I've recently enquired a friend about his PC because he is selling due to him accquiring a new PC. I just need third party opinion to help me make a decision.I currently wish to buy a PC which can manage to play games a at a good FPS level without the issue of having to restart every half an hour like my old PC use to. Games will vary, so that means the specs for the game will vary too.Here are the current specs of my friend's PC:2GHz Processor2G RAMNvidia 6510leWindows VistaIf it matters to anyone, I shall be hopefully playing games such as Call of Duty 4 and such on the PC, and I'm not sure if they can withstand with those specs hence way I'm asking on these forums . For the PC, he'd like ?200 GBP/$285 USD (http://www.xe.com/ucc/convert.cgi).Does anyone feel this is the right asking price for the PC with these current specs?Thanks foryour time,RaidX.

Answer:Good for the Price?

Hello, and welcome to the forums.My first impression is no, that's not a good deal.However - what processor is it?  If it's an old 2GHz, like a P4, it's definitely a bad deal.  If it's recent, such as a Core 2 Duo, it's a little better.Does it come with a hard drive?  DVD drive?  Case?With that graphics card there's no way you'll be able to play modern games - this could be upgraded, but only if the motherboard and power supply can handle some upgrades - what motherboard and power supply does he have?

If anyone can give me a rough estimate on how much I should ask to sell this system for it would be appreciated.

Hello there, I was searching the internet for a while, trying to find some cheap way to connect my tv and speakers with my laptop without cables. I was thinking to do it (not sure if it's possible, but why wouldn't it be?) by using vga to usb converter, where one (vga) connector would go into tv, and the other, converted, usb side would stick to the usb hub, and then, wirelessly to laptop. Speakers would be connected to the external usb sound card, which would be connected to wireless hub too. The only thing I was able to find was some products from "Belkin" (like this one http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-F5U301-CableFree-4-Port-Dongle/dp/B000LP9RQC) but the price of 200$ was not exactly what I was looking for. I mean, u can find some wireless mouses on ebay and everywhere else for less than five dollars (work method is the same I think, they use 2.4Ghz technology just like usb hub), so why this thing would be 40 times more expensive?

Answer:Wireless usb hub price

Making USB wireless is an extremely hard task, I'd be surprised if even that $200 Belkin device would work reliably.  A wireless mouse is different as it doesn't send the USB signal wirelessly, instead it simply sends its movements wirelessly to the dongle which translates it into the USB signal, this is very little data to transfer.  General USB on the other hand can send huge amounts of data at high speed.A USB signal is not designed to be sent over anything other than a perfect wired connection so what you are looking for is extremely hard.  Even with that Belkin device I'd be amazed if it could move enough data reliably enough to support a video signal.A Chromecast sounds like the ideal device for this, you can easily use it to play media such as YouTube directly on the device or you can use a simple Chrome extension explained here to share anything on your screen: http://www.howtogeek.com/199565/mirror-anything-from-your-computer-to-your-tv-using-google-chromecast/.  It costs $35, connects to your TV with an HDMI cable and to your laptop over an existing WiFi network.  If you want to use your separate speakers with it, either connect them to the audio output of your TV or get a simple HDMI audio extractor.

On the 30-08-06 I sent an email to a friend of ours which took some 20 minutes to send and download, which is O.K. as we are both on a site with unlimited download, however, even though I have long since saved the item and deleted it from my computer email (Thunderbird)
my friend is being driven crazy with constant downloads of this particular item, so far 7 in total! Her computer tells her that she has 13 emails waiting that she can't down load!
Please help!!
 

Answer:John Price

If the email (presumably with an attachment) was that large, it could be "stuck" in the ISP mailbox. This can happen if large attachments get corrupted.

Most ISP's have webmail interfaces to the email account holder mailbox, logging in via their web page allows the account holder to directly access the mail, from where the offending email that is clogging the system (and therefore repeating) can be deleted, letting the others through.

The thing is, I can either pay $835 for an x201i that includes an Intel Core i3-370M Processor (2.40GHz, 3MB L3, 1066Mhz FsB) and can't be upgraded, or I can pay $1.3k for an x201 laptop with the same stats that has an Intel Core i7-620M Processor (2.66GHz, 4MB L3, 1066MHz FSB).

Is the better processor is worth the extra $450?

I'm starting college as a CS major, so I'll be using it everyday things as well as programming. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as this is my first laptop! :]

Answer:Processor vs. Price

I would say no, it's not worth the extra $450 if the cpu is the only difference.

Question: Gorilla Price

My computer got a few updates on windows explorer and from then on it came with a progra called Gorilla Price. I have done everything to remove it but so far nothing works. Not system restore not my anti virus or spy ware and not using tools to remove it either. Please I need help. Please... Someone help me. I am desperate...
 

Answer:Gorilla Price

Welcome to Major Geeks!

Please read ALL of this message including the notes before doing anything.

Please follow the instructions in the below link:

READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide

and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.

**** If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going. ****
Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not. MGtools will frequently run even when all other tools will not.


After completing the READ & RUN ME and attaching your logs, make sure that you tell us what problems still remain ( if any still do )!
Helpful Notes:


If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode, you can run the steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:

Starting your computer in Safe mode

If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools and the manual update Malwarebytes ( links are given in the READ & RUN ME) onto another PC and then burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC. You will have to skip getting updates if (and only if) your internet connection does not work. Yes you could use a flash drive too but flash drives are writeable and infections can spread to them.
If you cannot seem to login to an infected user account, try using a different user account ... Read more

Question: 2nd Laptop price

I have a laptop here and someone is interested to buy it.
Specs: Intel Atom 1.6ghz cpu, 1gigs ram, 160gig harddrive,

10.2" screen. no dvdrom. Uses external dvdrom (not included)
and its about 6-7 months old.
Now I was just wondering if someone could give me an idea of how much money I can ask for this laptop
Posted via Mobile Device
 

Answer:2nd Laptop price

I dont know the 2nd hand market in South Africa - so its difficult to give a price
To be honest in the UK there are some very good bargins and good specs in the £350
so as a guide maybe a 3rd of the price of a new one..

Whats the make and model of the PC ?
Is this a full PC or a netbook ?

What should one pay for a used monitor? We have been offered a Dell N20 Metro M20w but haven't agreed on a price.
 

Answer:How do you price a used monitor?

I would look around the internet and sites such as eBay or Craigs List to see what the same model is selling for. Used PC hardware doesn't really keep its value and used hardware sells at whatever similar models sell for, so also check what similar models sell for.

It doesn't appear that the info you provided is correct, you should verify the model number of the monitor. Actually it appears to be maybe two models. The Metro M20W is a 20" LCD that sold around $300 new in 2006, but a new 20" monitor now sell for $100 brand new. And Metro isn't even a good brand, so maybe like $25.

Question: Price Check!

I am wanting to sell my Voodoo5 AGP 64mb, but I don't know what a reasonable price would be to sell it for. I looked on ebay, and one guy was selling his for $60. Mine was bought two years ago and was used for about half a year. I still have the box and original drivers and book. It works fine and has nothing wrong with it, and its never been o/ced. What do you guys think?

Answer:Price Check!

I would sell it for about 40-50$, if you see his get a bid for 60$ reasonably quick, then you might want to try that as well but I dont think its worth it.

Question: Sale Price

Morning All,

I am considering selling my system to upgrade to the new 2011 socket. Could someone please give me a rough estimate of my currents system's value and the best place to sell it online? I do not want to use ebay as the percentage they take is far to high!

System Specs:

i7 2600
1Tb Seagate Barracuda HD
Asus HD6950 2Gb
8Gb Kingston Genisis 1600MHz RAM
DVD-RW
Asus P8P76 Pro Rev 3 Motherboard
Windows 7 Professional
Antec 300 Case
600W Modular PSU (unsure of make of the top of my head)

If anyone could give me a rough price I would be grateful. I know how much it would be new but the second hand market I have no idea!

Thanks for your time.

Dan
 

Answer:Sale Price

See what a comparable machine is selling for on eBay and advertise it on your local CraigsList.
