Is this better than bamboo?


It essentially IS the Bamboo. Wacom used to keep the Intuos name for their Pro line of tablets and the consumer end was usually called Bamboo. Now they've started calling it all Intuos (with the old Intuos rechristened Intuos Pro).
So really this is this years update to the Bamboo line. Still a great graphics tablet.
Is this better than bamboo?
Good portable graphics tablet. Been using Wacom for years and, in this market, there still is absolutely no competition (although Apples' pencil for the iPad Pro blows them away).
If you add a bag this qualifies for the £5 off £50 (if you have any of those vouchers), students can also get a 5% discount.
great price!

Glad this has proved useful for some people. I've had the XONE dock for about a year now and it's faultless, battery life is great and the battery packs are still alive and kicking like new today.
Just reserved for click and collect on Maplin. You do not have to pay upfront and they hold for 7 days. Awesome deal!
just wanted to post this ewww, bought one today for myself (XO) hot
these are great I have two sets so all 4 controllers are fully charged up all the time, brilliant as the kids are not constantly pulling plugs in and out.

I bought a Skywatcher 200p dobsonian (or 250p, I can't remember) about 6 months ago and really enjoy using it. With any telescope, especially if it's your first you need to really lower your expectations of what you're going to be able to see to not be disappointed. Even with a high power 5mm eyepiece on the 300mm dobsonian things like Jupiter are barely even the size of a pea. Nebulae and things like the ISS are the same - all pea sized at best. The only thing you're ever going to look at which looks large and fills the entire view is the moon.
I'm going to buy this scope though probably since I want a cheap, small, lightweight backup as it's impossible to lug around a 40kg dobsonian on the train to different locations and this is much easier to grab and run out to the garden with on a whim. It see like a typical sub £120 scope so at £50 it's good value for a beginner or intermediate user.

I think you'd be much better with a refractor as a mobile scope. Get an 80mm that will be easier to carry around, is completely enclosed, the whole 80mm aperture ,or near enough, is usable and no/few collimation or diffraction spike worries.
Thanks, got one. Seems like a good entry level starter telescope.

What did that make the total core and memory clocks? Was it 1846 and 8308?
Dirty_Harry
Bought it a week ago. TCB tracked very quickly. Estimated Payable is 26 weeks at the moment.
Very quiet card. Overclocks pretty good(+100 on core and the limit is reached; +300 on memory and there is still a room). I think my i5 4670K(OC 4.4Mhz) may bottleneck it in couple of games(close to 100%, while card is 70-80%). I`m very happy with this card <3

Can anyone tell me if this a good card and how loud it is? Also what is better this of the Evga version? I'm going to pair it with a 6600k, thanks.
Well maybe if you wait a bit the price will fall (this is true for any overpriced PC component) however if you want to benefit from the item now then this does seem a good price. It was rumoured that in the near future these would be sub £300 but that seems unlikely with the GTX 1060 now likely to fill that price point. Anyway I ordered one at this price.
350 quid could be the price if you have a mate in Aus that will visit soon. And buys a card from Amazon when its back in stock. Of course there is international warranty issues.
https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/256365
Price in the deal include delivery to Aus address and they don't need to pay customs at this level.

Does £350 seem like a fair guess at the new RRP? I don't want to bite at this price still.

Nvidia ruined everything with their inflated founders edition pricing. No one appears willing to deviate far from that price point, and why should they when people are willing to pay high prices for reference cooling solutions. I'd be inclined to wait it out a bit until demand dies down, but am worried that any price reductions towards the advertised 330RRP will be countered by Brexit price hikes.
Pick up a 2nd hand 980ti for sub £300. The 1080ti is what you want to wait for. Hopefully Vega will put Ngreedia in line.
I know people have been picking up 980TI's at less than £300 the overclockers forum is full of them but where from? All those on ebay are still well over £300

AVForums is a good source.

By the way, you may find your words have more impact if you're grammatically correct. Next time when you're trolling, maybe you should consult google and learn what a hyphen is and where to place it. You really showed me on that one!

It seems the gaming community has a very peculiar type of troll.

Was about to call out a liar or dismiss it as a pub rumour you must of heard. I personally didn't think 4 stroke strimmers were available and I'm a maintenance engineer and them using plastic for the cam shaft ( what next a plastic crank ? Lol ) is insane and cost cutting at the max.

It sounds more like the same tactic KitchenAid use. When you have the option between having a breakable camshaft or a burnt out motor, always take the easier and cheaper thing to replace. At least if that dies it's an easy fix, but a motor is expensive.

maplin logoMaplin – Electronic Specialists Since 1972

It all began from the bedroom of an Essex apartment in 1972, when a trio of technology buffs started selling consumer electronics by mail order from their catalogue. As positive word of mouth spread, they were able to complement mail order operations with a physical store in Westcliff-on-Sea and they've never looked back. Thanks to increasing revenues, Maplin were able to set up additional stores and warehouses, and even develop a range of home-build electronic project kits.

Now under the umbrella of Rutland Partners management group, Maplin runs over 200 physical stores across the UK and Ireland as well as mail and telephone order operations and an online store. Maplin also established a drop-shipping service in 2013 for budding digital marketers.

The Maplin online storefinder lets you find your nearest brick and mortar store in the UK and Ireland by entering your postcode, clicking the interactive map, or selecting your location from the list.

One other important category in the online store is Special Offers. So if the sales banners or ads on the homepage don’t tickle your fancy, head to the special offers section where you'll see popular products at discounted prices in addition to introductory offers on new items and brands. And if you find a product somewhere else at a lower price, Maplin will match it or refund the difference if you bought the product from Maplin up to 30 days ago. What’s more, Maplin’s Black Friday sales event is a good time for bargain hunters to grab online-only deals.

If you’d like next day delivery, you'll have to pay £5.99 and complete your order before 6pm or suggest your preferred delivery day and pay the same fee.

Returns and Refunds Policy at maplin.co.uk

Maplin has a handy 30-day money-back guarantee if you decide you no longer want something, if it’s not how you imagined it would be after you open it, or if it’s the wrong item in the box. This step by step guide will help you create a returns request for unwanted products:

  1. The first thing you must do is contact Maplin to make a returns request within 14 calendar days of product delivery. The quickest way is to take the product to your nearest Maplin store. Failing that, simply email Maplin at [email protected], by telephone at 0333 400 9500 (01-8782800 for Irish customers), or write a letter to their freepost address at Maplin Electronics, FREEPOST MAPLIN, Brookfields Way, Manvers, Rotherham, S63 5DL.
  2. Maplin’s customer service will then give you a returns authorisation number.
  3. Repackage the item or items and post them to Maplin Electronics Ltd, Brookfields Way, Manvers, Wath Upon Dearne, Rotherham S63 5DL. You are responsible for paying return shipping costs.
  4. The money will be refunded when Maplin are satisfied with the condition of returned items.

There are a few exemptions you should be aware of, though. First, you can’t return any item if you void the manufacturer’s warranty in any way, like breaking a seal (including on a DVD or CD) or activating software. Second, you can’t return items with a product activation key that was damaged after you bought them. Third, gift cards cannot be refunded once purchased. Fourth, any orders paid via PayPal can’t be refunded and only qualify for an exchange.

Plus, if you buy something from Maplin and it breaks down within a year, Maplin will exchange it or give you a refund (except PayPal) when you present the item and proof of your purchase to their customer service team as per the steps above.
