To say the connection is brutal is putting it lightly. Let's put it this way...last year, the wireless internet in the hotel sucked and you had to pay for it. This year, they've made it free...except they didn't upgrade it! So you have the same crappy connection but with 100x more people trying to use it.
Mike and I literally spent 5+ hours straight in McD's today to use their free wi-fi. It wasn't much faster, but it was more reliable.

What happened to the good old Ethernet cable?
Some hotels simply do not offer ethernet ports in rooms anymore as it is an "eyesore" to see a small hole in the wall...
About he coverage, excellent work as always, though pretty annoyed at Antec, no revision on their Performance One series is just saddening
On the Corsair front... that 650 is drool worthy
Keep up the great work, you guys never disappoint

Liking what Gigabyte had on show
They did have some nice stuff here this year, the new motherboards do look pretty promising, i cannot wait to get my hands on one and see how well it starts overclcoking
We are trying to get more coverage up for you guys here soon, so please stay tuned and checking back in the article for more updates. And Andrew is not kidding when he said the internet connection out here is horrible in the hotel room.
