VirtualBox AV Works Again. Yes!


YES! For the past half year I had been having audio sync problems with #VirtualBox so bit the bullet and upgraded to 6 a month ago. The audio didn't even play back right so couldn't even play back Spotify. Until now. 6.0.4 fixed it all. Thanks!



Linux Ultrabook with high battery life


I want to experiment with a new Linux Ultrabook. The Dell XPS looks interesting but I'm annoyed at how much the website hides and directs away. I'm hoping that #System76 has gotten ultra book battery up to 7-8 hours in normal use.

Two cores are not really exciting but can help to improve the battery life even if I believe the main reason is to keep the price low. From the other side the hardware switches can really help to save energy...

I read the System76 is manufacturing more in the US not sure about the laptop, maybe they still continues to be Clevo rebranded, in this case you may opt directly for a Clevo laptop...

Their laptops haven’t moved yet. I don’t know when they are planning on moving that but they have stated that they are.
