I love new cars, the smell of the toxic fumes in the carpet make me smile, but what I love the most is the paint. I appreciate the newness, the shine, the aaahhhh, it’s just beautiful. That hard shell, lacquered enamel finish is something we can all appreciate, but one thing I have noticed is that all finishes are not the same. Of course, when I was a youngster, I purchased cars that were more affordable but, as I earned more and my tastes became more refined, I began to lean towards sport luxury and quality. (No, I’m not telling you what I own now) One thing I began to notice was the quality of the paint on each of the cars and I will be the first to say that it’s true, all paint jobs are not the same. Many of the lower end cars had what appeared to be beautiful paint jobs but, upon closer inspection, I noticed it was all an illusion to make an imitation appear to be what it’s not.
If you‘re familiar with my reviews, you know I talk a lot about different types of computer users; mostly the Enthusiast, DIYer or Novice, but I rarely talk about Power Users. Of course there are power users and they are those who make use of multi-threaded applications or compile scientific data on a daily basis. The power user needs processing power; the power to render, transcode, transfer and compile their massive spread sheets. The average desktop processor may not be capable of handling this type of workload so what alternatives do they have? Considering the cost of a server setup, even if you were to build it yourself, it may not be a feasible option, although it will more than suit your needs. There is one other option and that would be to purchase a desktop processor that has more than four physical and virtual cores combined with a frequency that can still rifle through those pesky single threaded applications, too.
