Difference on P40 models? 20GQ001NMD 20GQ001NMS

Q: Difference on P40 models? 20GQ001NMD 20GQ001NMS

Hi, Seeing as there's no contact e-mail for these kind of questions I hope someone in here can help me. I am looking forward to buy a ThinkPad P40, and I found these two models way cheaper than if I buy at Lenovo directly; 20GQ001NMD, 20GQ001NMS. Can someone tell me if these are worse models than the one I can get from Lenovo directly? It seems very strange that they are so much cheaper, we're talking about 3000 DKK (danish kroners), equals to 350. I think I found once that the two models I am asking for are from september last year. -Can that really make such a big difference? The shop is getting new units later this month, same models they say. Have a nice day.

I am planning on purchasing an Acer Aspire R 14 laptop.  I specifically researched the R5-471T-52EE model (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2498473,00.asp).  On Acer's website I didn't find this particular model, but the following models all have the same specs: R5-471T-57RD (http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/NX.G7WAA.011)R5-471T-58FW (http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/NX.G7WAA.015)R5-471T-50UD (http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/NX.G7WAA.008)R5-471T-51UN (http://www.acer.com/ac/en/US/content/model/NX.G7WAA.006) The only difference I found between each of these models is a slightly difference battery capacity. Can someone help me understand why there are 4 practically identical models of the same laptop, and if there are any significant differences I am missing? Thank you!

Have been unable to work it out from the HP website etc. Need help asap as I may be cancelling my order... any help appreciated! 

A:HP Spectre - difference between models

HP's product coding is just not very transparent but it is very possible laptops with the same specs have multiple product numbers depending on distribution channel. I am sure John Lewis and PC World is each big enough to receive dedicated model numbers from HP. I have scoured the spec lists for you on both these laptops and as far as I can ascertain, they are identical: same processor, memory, solid state drive, wireless card, screen resolution. Functionally I can see no difference.

I have 2 computers which I wish to network. I have a broadband, cable connection to my primary computer and no connection yet to my secondary. Is there sufficient difference in speed, or would I notice any difference at all, between the 11b and the G. 54mbps routers, to justify paying $40 more for the latter? CompUSA has on sale, this coming Sunday, a Netgear MR 814802.11b Cable/DSL wireless router for $29.99 after rebates. They also are offering a SMC Wireless G. 54 mbps Cable/DSL router for $69.99 after rebates. Which would be the best buy for the long pull?
 

A:Speed Difference Between Router Models?

If you go wireless, you'll see a large difference in local network speed between the 11mb 802.11b and 54mb 802.11g wireless connections. OTOH, you won't see any difference in Internet sharing speed, wired or wireless.

A:Are all T61 models equal

All T61 machines are 64 bit and can run a 64-bit OS.  There is no such thing as 32 bit -> 64-bit upgrade.  It needs a fresh install.  The same license is good for both, but you would need recovery disks.  T61 machines are not all the same:  14.1: tall-screen (4:3), 14.1" wide-screen and 15.4" wide screen.  There are difficulties in getting a fresh win 7 install working, related to system update.  Microsoft has not paid much attention to windows 7.

Most so-called Topseller models are not available anywhere. Why? Online vendors seem to have an abundance of only three P50 models, while one or two of a very few others trickle in sporadically, most not at all. Is this the way Lenovo releases these machines now? It used to be that models announced near the end of a calendar year would be stocked everywhere in great numbers by early spring, often at very good prices. Maybe having so many problems has held them back.

Hello, I work for an engineering company and I was wondering if anybody has any experience with NX. I saw a guy post something about catia so I assume somebody might be familiar with it. It is popular CAD software used by major engineering companies. Anyway, I am looking to design a customized feature for the program. However I am not quite sure how to approach it.
CAD models usually contain information or can be analyzed to produce information that can be used to make informed decisions by engineers. Information such as volume, surface area, weight, length, height etc. I am looking to design a simulator that can take CAD models and produce results and information based on the simulation.
I will give you an example; lets say I have a CAD model of Boeing 747, and I want to know how exactly how much speed it takes to create enough lift to get the plane off the run way in it's current condition. Now the models contain all the properties needed for the simulator to know how heavy that plane is, and how the weight is displaced among the structure (centers of gravity).
Now that was just an example, I am not running a simulator on a plane.
However my first thought is this:
CAD models (particularly in NX) are resource intensive, and unlike the render engine in your favorite game engine where occlusion culling takes place, in NX and CAD software in general the way it renders geometry isn't meant to save on your PC's resources. Even on a high end rig with the... Read more

Howdy folks.

Does anyone know of a good method for this?

I work with a lot of .cgr files. (CATIA Graphic) It is my understanding that this is a triangulated surface representation of a modeled CatPart or CatProduct. I would really like to be able to export the shell into AutoCAD.

Right now, the way I go about this is exporting the cgr as a .wrl then opening that in Spacevision and converting it to a .spv file. This spv is similar to a cgr. With the spv(or wrl) open in Spacevision, we then take a screenshot of the model and import that into ACAD and manually trace the outline. This is a slow, tedious, and inaccurate process. But it's the best way we know of right now.

Another issue is that Spacevision has a limited size of wrl that it can open. When a cgr is converted to a wrl it gets much larger. A lot of the larger wrls (over 500MB) refuse to open in SV as it says it runs out of memory, even if the PC has 24 or 32 GB installed. The size issue wouldn't be that big of a deal of I could go about it another way.

We have a program that was written to convert a section cut in SV into a drawing in ACAD. It takes the hpgl file and plots it into a CAD drawing using a script. The program and script were written by my company. But I guess the programmes couldn't figure this out. Idk.

If anyone has experience with CATIA or Spacevision, or converting models from CATIA to AutoCAD. I'd love to discuss this. I can get from Solidworks to ACAD and I can get the wrl t... Read more

Hello,

Regarding a new 1 TB External HD.

There seem to be a zillion different reliability surveys out there.
You folks are the real experts, so let me ask here:

Is there any consensous as to which Brand and Model is considered "the best" regarding reliability for
an external 1 TB (or 1.5 TB perhaps) HD.

Really confusing knowing which to get.

My Seagate, with very minimal use, lasted only about 3 yrs.
Was only used for backing up, (once every week or two) and unplugged the rest of the time.
Quite disappointing.

Thanks,

A:HD: Reliability Of Different Brands/Models ?

Yep, I have had bad luck with the last 2 Seagates I have bought, one was a 2TB and the other 3TB. The 2TB lasted about 14 months, the 3TB (both only used as a backup) only lasted about 8 months, then fried itself, yet I have 2 WD 1TB that have lasted with no probs for 3-4 years, and 1 has games installed on it.

Next week I am buying 2 new HDD's both WD a 3TB & 4TB, then 2 weeks later a Samsung 120GB 850 Evo, for my windows drive as I only use about 75GB as it is, all my other stuff is on other drives.

Hi folks

Would need your opinions on memory compatibility.

I have two sets of DDR3 memory. 2 x 4 Gb in each case. One set of Ares and one set of Ripjaws. Here is the link that compares the two. Except for the heat spreader, they look identical to me. Same manufacturer, same Cas latency, same timings. Only the model is different. Under the heat spreader, they must be identical chips.

https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Productcompare.aspx?CompareItemList=147|20-231-428^20-231-428,20-231-544^20-231-544

Right now, the Ripjaws are used. Ares still in the box.

My question is: Can I use both in my system (mobo: Gigabyte H97-D3H) without any problem for a total of 16 Gb insted of 8 Gb? I would not want to damage anything.

Thank you

The specs for both sets appear to be the same, so I don't see why they can't be used in a 16 GB(4 GB X 4) configuration.
