Default Few questions from MALAYSIA! woohoo =)

First, just a simple (and kinda stupid question),
what does a person buy an Android Based portable devices such as Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime usually do? browsing webs and also doing some documentation?


Second, I'm having 3 HDD, all are Western Digital disk :
150GB
1TB GREEN
2TB GREEN

so the question is if i having this kind of 'heavy' memory space hdd, does a normal motherboard can afford it by looking onto the point of the speed of data transferring? or any other point that you guys (which are proffessional) can tell to me? So i can learn more about a computer.

As far as having a tablet, as far as I am concerned they are just a toy. If I wanted a small portable "computer" I would buy a netbook.

Not sure what you are asking in question 2.....

I see.

In question 2,
I get some info said that when a motherboard cannot afford the heavy load of hdd, the transfer speed will be slow, hence affect the loading speed. Because now i experiencing the HDD LED keeps light on. So i want to know is it because of my motherboard cannot afford the heavy load so making this HDD LED keeps light on and slower loading situation on my PC.

PS : My motherboard brought at around 2~3years ago, Gigabyte EP31-DS3L rev2.0

The heavy use could be a lot of things running in the background. You will have to go into task manager and find out what is running and keeping your computer so busy. Use the power of google to see what steps you can take in getting your rig to run smoother.

for simple word editing, the transformer prime is very good with the included keyboard dock. then again, ultrabooks are a better buy in 2012 as their price is slated to decrease by the middle of next year.

as for your hdd activity, check what running processes you have and google suspicious ones. also do a virus scan.
malwarebytes is a good program.

oh yea, welcome to the forums!
