comment Minimum specs needed to run 1080p HD movies?
An update, on another machine, I have an Intel e7300 and mplayer under Linux (Ubuntu) still can't keep up with 1080p - firstly, there is no graphics card hardware acceleration, and secondly I suspect it's mostly due to a bad compile settings / optimizations of the package that comes with Ubuntu. If your CPU doesn't cope, it may pay-off to look around for the best optimized binary you can find.

comment Mouse middle click works only once
I can clearly hear the click when clicking down and up, so it's not a mechanical issue, but it could be electrical. I think you are right about it being electrical of some sort. Plugging into a different USB port didn't work, but after opening it and closing it again (without any changes), now it seems to be working ok. Loose wire perhaps could explain it. Thanks

comment Minimum specs needed to run 1080p HD movies?
I had a Core Duo 1.8Ghz system that couldn't do 1080p :) it was almost there, but it would chugg on high-action scenes. Mind you, it was doing fine on raw .ts streams, but it couldn't handle x264 encoded streams.
