”Dude You’re Getting a Dell’ guy

In the early 2000s, Ben Curtis became a huge pop culture sensation after appearing in 26 different commercials for Dell. Everyone knew Curtis for his “Dude, you’re getting a Dell!” catchphrase. But after he was busted for attempting to buy drugs, Dell immediately severed ties with the young actor. Curtis tells us about his time as the “Dell Dude,” how much money he made, where all that money went, and what he’s up to now.

This is a lot of computer for the money.

I look at a lot of low cost PCs that come in at and around this price point. Typically they are appliances that don’t have a lot of horsepower and aren’t very upgradeable. This one breaks that mold and delivers a fairly powerful quad core i5 PC with a healthy 8 GB of RAM and plenty of room for upgrades.

Out of the box it will perform most casual tasks as well as perhaps many premium computers will. I found it to very easily tackle complex Word documents while simultaneously watching a 60 frames per second 1080p video from YouTube. And even though it lacks an onboard graphics card (GPU) it was able to achieve playable frame rates in popular games like Rocket League, Minecraft, and Counterstrike.

Is it a gaming PC? Definitely not as configured but there is some ability to make it into an entry level one thanks to a PCIe x16 slot that should be able to accommodate a slot powered mini GPU. The 300 watt power supply should have enough juice to power it. It also has a free RAM slot to bring its included DDR4 RAM into dual channel mode to better enhance gameplay.

Gripes? Not many. I do wish Acer configured the computer with two 4GB RAM modules vs. the single 8GB module installed. The reason is that when memory is installed in pairs the computer will perform faster as can be seen in the attached video during the Rocket League segment. Also for $400 don’t expect much out of the keyboard and mouse – they’re about as cheap as you can get.

For the money this is a great value and worth considering for a family PC – especially if family members plan to do some video / photo editing and other demanding tasks. Even without the GPU this quad core computer packs a decent punch for a very low price.

Connect Samsung Galaxy Phones to Playstation 3 using DLNA (Read Update)

UPDATE: This feature also works on Galaxy S4 & Galaxy Note 3.
In this video I show how to connect the Samsung Galaxy S3 to the Playstation 3 or any other device using the DLNA feature in the Smartphone. I’ve been told that these steps also works for Galaxy S4 and Note 1 & 2. This actually works with any device that had DLNA in it. This is the Sprint version.


I installed Windows 95 on my Apple Watch

With a 520 MHz processor, 512 MB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage, the Apple Watch packs a lot of computing horsepower into a very small package. On paper, its processor alone is about twenty-five times faster than the average 386, and 512 MB was the size of a hard drive in the mid nineties, not memory. As a result, I was feeling confident that the Apple Watch had the ability to run one of the most revered desktop operating systems Redmond has ever produced.
