The Best Bargain Components (Part 1)
The cost of most products goes through a cycle where it starts out high and ends up low. Initial Tooling costs and low volumes that inflate the price at first, and to avoid a total financial failure these are often passed on to the early-adopting customer. Eventually, as production volumes increase and other products come supersede it at the cutting edge, the price falls to encourage people to buy.

NUC Intel Review - A Small But Promising Desktop PC (Part 2)
Once properly equipped, it is obvious that the NUC is not a cheap computer. Not that it deserves to be identified as a low-cost computer, but it's important to lose any perspective about this cheap $300 price. At a minimum, you can plan to double its price and then, you will need to find the keyboard, mouse and screen.

Can Microsoft Really Kill Off Windows XP? (Part 3)
The trouble with massively successful products like Windows XP is once they get out into the wild, they do tend to take on a life of their own. Because Windows then wasn’t run like the walled-garden that Apple has with its controlled App Store, anyone was able to use XP in whatever way they imagined.
Can Microsoft Really Kill Off Windows XP? (Part 2)
If Microsoft could deliver the source code for XP, as it no longer sells the product, then maybe third-party companies could continue to enhance it? It’s a lovely idea, but it will never happen for a number of critical reasons.
Can Microsoft Really Kill Off Windows XP? (Part 1)
In researching this article, I found a very ancient posting by Joe Wilcox on CNET from December 2001, which details these early retail road bumps. It talks about 400,000 sales in October, followed by just 250,000 in November 2001. That compared quite badly with the 580,000 that Windows 98 sold in its first month, and the 19 million licenses that it shipped of Windows 95 in the first year.

How – To Basics Backup In Linux
Backing your data up is important. So important that almost everyone forgets to do it or doesn’t do it correctly.

Mac User’s Guide: You Literally Can’t Buy A Crappy Mac (Part 3)
From the outside, the Mac mini remains the same.

The connectivity ports are the same, with four USB. Gigabit Ethernet, Thunderbolt, FireWire 800, HDMI, and an SDXC card slot.
Mac User’s Guide: You Literally Can’t Buy A Crappy Mac (Part 2)
The new 27-inch late-2012 iMacs have a door to let users access the four RAM slots, which support a total of 32GB. But alas, the 2012 21.5-inch iMacs do not. Older iMacs with optical drives make the RAM easy to access, and it's also possible to crack them open and upgrade the storage, too. Other World Computing has kits, and iFixit. com is our go-to site for step-by-step instruction photos.
Mac User’s Guide: You Literally Can’t Buy A Crappy Mac (Part 1)
Apple's machines are like fine-tuned sports cars: high-performance, high-quality components wrapped in an eye catching package that’s utterly fun to drive.

The Best Overlocked PCs On The Market (Part 2)
With a name like Overclockers UK, you'd be a bit disappointed if this firm only sold PCs running at stock speed. Fortunately OCUK doesn't disappoint, with a wide range of pre-built and preoverclocked systems. One that caught our eye was the Titan Force Trinity, mostly because it uses an overclocked AMD processor rather than the much more common Ivy Bridge-based Intel setup.
