Please note that Toms was blacklisted a while back for benchmark cheating and recommending ONLY the brands that THEY like...

Since then I have not trusted them a bot.

Is there a version of this story on a RELIABLE site?

Looks like THG was just reporting THIS second-hand.

The whole thing is a little tiresome, really. Catering to different markets is important, but when you're blatantly borking your own product, you're doing something wrong.

Thank you MpG....at least that is a trustworthy site. :D

thanks for the info on toms new news to me go figure. let me guess it all happen when they got bought out right

Digikid May 26, 2009 03:25 PM

Yep. Even though they are under new ownership now...I cannot bring myself to trust them.

Who knows how many rotten apples remained behind.

toms has been a joke to me for many years

Ah well that news to me. I always saw that the benchmarks were always in Intel / NVIDIA favor though... But what I would do for the Starter edition if they only want to ship on netbook, I would restrict the resolution instead of applications. That would restrict companies to make 13" Netbooks and also, you would have the power of Windows 7

res limit i think i like that idea there chosen. that would help work out some performance issues i might think too.
