I really like how it looks when its turned off.. Looks very sweet.
yeah it been out for a while the keys are quite big and spaced further part than the usual 19mm but it has a good action as it uses the cherry ML key switches.

Re: is solidworks maintenance worth having?

cheers for the input, I'm not fussed about cross compatibility at the moment as I'm not having to work with other SW users ...yet. But this could certainly cause a problem down the road. I suppose I'm most interested in having a stable system to be honest. To be honest support is ok as long as they ...

is solidworks maintenance worth having?

I'm looking at getting a Solidworks seat I can call my own. Its quite a big ££ outlay and I was wondering is the maintenance really worth having?

Re: Whats the best plastic for this application?

I think you might have to pick one of your wish list. Most of these so called 'green' materials are just different shades of green...i.e they are green in different ways. Also over moulding stuff would mean you part would no longer recyclable as it would now be bonded to another material It wouldn't...

Re: where are all the UK ID designers?

I think Coroflot doesn't come in to scope for most UK design job seekers...since a UK job only pops up very rarely...however when they do they are normally very good. I would also recommend Dezeen as it seems to have influx of regular UK job postings, and I would imagine it's alot cheaper than desig...

Re: all things Apple iPad

Charlie Brooker made a good comment on the ipad: Some people are complaining because it doesn't have a camera in it. Spoiled techno-babies, all of them. Just because something is technically possible, it doesn't mean it has to be done. It's technically possible to build an egg whisk that makes phon...

Re: No one else will say it, I will; the iPad is disappointing

I don't think the ipad is lame its just a little different meant for doing simple stuff, perhaps only at home away from the desk. I would have liked them to cut down even more to lower the price. It's just not what everyone (mac geeks) wanted...go buy modbook if you want a mac tablet (http://www.axi...
