mmm.... flame. I love the taste of it.
Exactly what part is made of titanium my friend? Really, what part, I'd like to know.
A man told me his IBM was a piece of plastic crap. He went to school for computers. I'll believe him before I believe an online persona (Hmm.... how DO you spell that?). Why am I catching crap when I'm merely inserting facts, just like anyone else.
I told him of an experience I've heard from a credible source. And quite frankly, I wouldnt beleive anyone who admittedly did all that to a laptop.
Really, learn how to post helpfully and without being royal jerk. Your post should have started off start with "I disagree with" (Name... mine) "Because" (Experience, in this case, all the IBM's you've worked with).
No, time to search the IBM site, because I doubt I'll get any direct facts from you on this titanium thing.
EDIT: And IBMs are heavily over priced.
From IBM Site:
11[.] Titanium Composite Carbon Fiber Reinforced Plastic has three times the strength of ABS plastic as tested by IBM using the high flex modulus test on 2/28/00.
Composite is far different from alloy my friend. Composite alloy, as you've called this, could have been Titanium alloyed with another metal, probably aluminium. What you have here is Titanium, Carbon, and other materials mixed together to be stronger then plastic. I'd like to see how this stacks up to a 16th or 8th inch of steel.
Its tougher then plastic, not metal reinforcements.
EDIT AGAIN: Disregard above edit about alloy, much better explaination below. MUCH better.
