    Sorry Dino you got suckered into it too.
    Edit: We all do appreciate the look out on new technologies though.

    HAHAHA
    oh man, I've seen all those sites.
    You know there is NOTHING that special about these computers that would make them impossible at all. ALL THE PARTS EXIST!! I could buy the parts and make one myself for christ's sake.

    None of the information given in that conspiracy site mean that the L computers don't exist. If you are logical and think about it, there is no reason to think they don't exist. If you think they don't exist, you may be right, but there isnt a single GOOD reason to doubt it. You get what I'm saying?

    I'm tired of seeing so many threads about new technology. The posters should at least know a little about the subject and even describe its application in carputers. That means... you tell us how fast it boots, how to do it, and how much it costs. Don't bother quoting stuff, because I can read that from their site.

    what is this?

    I think it's a big hoax. There is no info anywhere about puram, except it's a city in india. If i won the lottery, i'd blow a few bucks to prove it's a hoax

    LOL! You guys are funny. First off, if this were real (I'm not saying it is) the PuRam drive would have to be integrated into the mainboard to achieve that speed. Imagine 8 DDR slots. 4 used for ram, and 4 battery-backed chips used for booting. If you think about it, any one with BOIS programming knowlege could just have the system boot off the ram (otherwise known as a warm boot). It's not too far off. But I don't see that happening in this situation. Otherwise, they'd be advertising the mainboard, not the storage itself. It's a good look to the future of average PCs, but I don't see it happening right now.

    You can still warm boot any PC. Read many of my other posts.

    oh wow. wait, hold on a second, let me stop laughing at your stupidity.

    Please please forgive me. I didn't know you were so tired of all this new technology. See, I just thought that maybe this PuRam would be perfect for a car application.
    You want me to show you everything, or nothing? That's pretty lazy.

    Also if those sites "convince" you that L is fake, then you are pretty gullible.


    And by the way. PuRam? - http://www.cenatek.com/index.cfm

    So kindly shut the hell up if you don't know what you are talking about.

    Too bad it needs a constant power supply, so it wouldnt be good for car use, it would drain the bat over time...

    Yum. flamebait.

    the cenatek website details a system that creates a physical drive out of standard DIMM memory modules. This is not Puram.

    These PCI cards appear to be just a memory control module like you would find in your motherboard, along with 4 DIMM slots. This gives each card a maximum of 4GB of space. They are also spannable so If you have 2 you could make it an 8 gig drive. This is a very nifty idea for servers or perhaps a swap drive for windows or a video editing program, NOT permanant storage, as any power loss would erase everything on it.

    the cheapest price for a 1gb stick of PC2700 DDR ram is $127 Making the price for a 4 gig drive $508 plus shipping plus the price of the card itself. I don't know about you but I don't want to spend 500 bucks for a 4 gig hard drive. By the way. this will ONLY take 1 gb memory sticks.

    From the tech specs I've read these are not bootable devices. Making them useless for speeding boot times.

    There is some prototype memory out there that would enable instant booting. However it is at LEAST good year away before anything becomes consumer available.

    read cenateks site.
    in the forum they discuss ways to make it bootable.

    This is PuRam. This is the exact part that L computers is using. L calls it PuRam. It's marketing. On centeks site, right on the front page, they indicate how Liebermann has picked up their hardware.

    It uses a seperate power supply. It is always plugged in. OH and it doesnt use DDR ram. Maybe you should read more carefully?

    This is all getting really boring. You guys are being hostile me and these concepts for no real reason, and all I'm doing is trying to share information about new technology. Maybe you should get off my back and bother to do some research? Thanks.
