joeyFunnyLookinHat: ok I'm up on the new platform. Smaller than I expected. Nice and fast too17:25
FunnyLookinHatjoey, how's it sound?17:35
joeyFunnyLookinHat: it's louder than my laptop but not as loud as my old desktop. 36db and I already put it on the quiet fan setting18:15
FunnyLookinHatyeah - mid 30s was about what I read w/ my phone app18:15
joeyI don't recall exactly but I think my laptop was 26ish18:16
joeyand my old desktop was, what, 88?18:16
joeyIt's a wonderful machine. My only complaint was that a smoker worked on it. It came out smelling like cigarettes18:16
joeyor something used in the building of it smells like that18:17
joeyflux or glue getting warm18:17
joeybut I'm very happy with it18:17
joeyit was a great recommendation, thanks for that18:17
joeythe ssd upgrade was a good idea too18:22
FunnyLookinHatjoey, wait - the new machine smells like cigs ?18:23
joeyFunnyLookinHat: yep.18:25
FunnyLookinHatAnd yeah - we recommend the SSD before any other upgrade generally...  huge improvement in performance :)18:25
joeyI've got the door open and the smell is just about gone18:25
FunnyLookinHatjoey, I've already passed it along - that's not ok with us18:25
joeyit came very nicely packaged and presented... better than my last box I got from 7618:26
FunnyLookinHatYeah we've been trying to work on that end of things - more end to end branding, etc.18:26
FunnyLookinHatConsistent experiences are generally better, etc.18:26
joeythe setup was nicer. It didn't get rid of the oem setup account, I had to do that by hand, but even that was better than the last time I did it18:27
joeyI'd definitely recommend it so far to others18:27
FunnyLookinHatwait - really?18:27
joeyyeah it kept booting into the oem account18:27
joeyI had to logout and into my own and then purge the oem account18:27
FunnyLookinHatI'm letting our imaging engr know18:27
joeyand yes for the record I restarted twice just to ensure there wasn't some fancy "on your next reboot we'll remove it" script18:28
FunnyLookinHatJason D. is telling me it's something we've seen randomly but haven't been able to pin down18:29
FunnyLookinHatI'd likely blame Ubiquity - but that's just a guess18:29
FunnyLookinHatjoey, Glad you're liking it though18:29
joeyI saw it remove ubiquity in the dialogs during firstboot18:29
FunnyLookinHatYeah but Ubiquity should have removed the oem account I believe18:31
FunnyLookinHatw/ oem-mode18:31
FunnyLookinHatjoey, well - glad you like the machine in spite of those issues...  I've passed them both along18:33
joeyFunnyLookinHat: yeah it's all good. Aside from the sound level, my favourite features are the bountiful USB ports in various locations and the fact that the power light is also a drive activity light18:35
FunnyLookinHatYeah the chassis is slick :D18:36
joeyI think more people might buy this guy if the marketing images showed the actual size18:37
joeyit's at least 40% smaller than I was expecting18:37
joeyeven if the headline said "all this power in something under 12 inches"18:38
FunnyLookinHatjoey, mind running a quick command ?18:45
FunnyLookinHatcat /proc/cpuinfo | grep "model name"18:45
joeyIntel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 CPU @ 3.60GHz18:46
FunnyLookinHatjoey, free upgrade :)18:46
joeyI believe that's the one I ordered18:47
FunnyLookinHatYour order was for a 477018:47
FunnyLookinHat3.4 Ghz18:47
joeyoh which is no longer offered!18:47
FunnyLookinHatSo just a whee bit faster18:47
