I like that Carbon fiber notebook :) Carbon Fiber also helps dissipate heat does it not! That would seemingly make the whole unit aspect additionally better. Yeah I know it looks cool and is hard cooling especially in a space inhibited technical device is a plus especially with the core i5 board and energy usage stand point as well a very nice combo!

Hey great video! :P lol

Thanks for the warp up :), waiting on that galaxy review. Also you have to save space, eating off the build makes for a 2 in 1 space saver! :P

Because it was right up his alley.

hahaha thank you Dave i would have totally missed it, i thought the video was over but i left it playing because of your comment.

Ok so i am so excited about the new build thats coming out. I know that you and Marco get pretty busy but i was wondering if one of you could do a video or an article on what makes a good build. Like how to chose the best case, power supply,..... etc. To make the best build and what special tricks you guys use or have used to make them better.

Ps. If i ask really nicely?

Always a pleasure to watch the HH vidcast since they move along so well.
Yep it's those little things like Dave's robotic animation to compliment a sequence and leaving the Marco 'blurp' in that makes these videos the very best compliment to the light-hear-ted diversity within this community that is totally unique.
