Apologies if this is the incorrect area for this question.
I’ve noticed that as I copy data/install programs on my Laptop, the weight of the Laptop increases. I have a bad back and am medically limited on the amount of weight I can carry so I need to be very carefull not to inflict injury upon myself.
I have also noticed my XBox feels heavier as well (the more games I save or purchase from arcade). I generally don’t travel with my XBox so that is not an issue for me, but note the I am having the same results.
My ask, what is the weight/file ratio? So for example, how many GB’s = 6oz? I dread the day I need a dolly to commute to work with my Laptop.
Thanks in advance!
Is this guy for real?? Honestly one of the best laughs I’ve had in a while, esp after reading responses like
If you have very large files, you can compress them and then compress the compressed file etc. until the files are down to 1 byte. That should make you laptop lighter than when you bought it! I use this trick all the time so that I can save my entire music collection on a 5-1/4″ floppy (yeah, I found a use for them 🙂
Every Gigabyte counts as 5oz of extra weight for your computer.There has been cases (in computers with 1Tb of Hard drive and more) of people left eMule activated 3 days and when that people returned to the computer,there was a hole in the floor instead.
Dreading the day you Dolly your laptop???? Are you kidding me….. what does your laptop weigh 6 lbs. at the most?
That about half the weight of your McDonalds bag…
You better be carrying an Alienware laptop and not a netbook.
If you cannot carry your laptop thats the least of your worries, I’d be more concerned with how your dealing with yourself daily
You do know that your installing programs in a virtual perspective
Hehehe hope it made you smile (and possibly laugh)…I know I chuckled at this poor fellow’s expense for a while hehe
Also, my camera should be with me by the end of this week hopefully if all goes well!! I’m UBER excited!! *bounce bounce*
