I am not a mathematician, but the percentage of posts on this forum within the last 30 days dealing with laptop issues is considerable. Besides the 'normal' everyday laptop "I can't update" stuff, now we are getting the switchable graphics crowd. Responses to these questions are all the same for the most part. It is/has been clear that posters will not use the 'search' function to read the answers to their questions themselves...it must be read to them (in a manner). There is a section for all the crossfire problems. There is a section for all the eyefinity problems. We used to have a laptop section for all the laptop problems. Now we don't. We have a "memory" section. We have to have a laptop forum with 'several' stickys. At least a poster "might" look at some of the other posts and get some help/answers instead of posting the same thing over and over and over again. There....I will get off my soapbox now.

I agree, there's no reason to have an AMD Memory section since all it can do is fail, which is easily diagnosable via Memtest86 and sometimes Windows Memory Diagnostic, whereas a laptop can pose all sorts of questions and issues.

By the way, love the green color, now if it would just scale to the entire width of the screen...

Hope a moderator will read this....and I agree, the green is much better and it doesn't seem so bright.

Even though it doesn't scale to full screen yet, at least they replaced the white bars on the sides with 50% grey, much easier on the eyes.

Is this going to happen?
