Default Lots of random questions

- Are laptop batteries from China to be trusted? I'm specifically looking at this.

- Can identical Lithium Ion cells be charged in parallel? Some people say yes, some say no.

- Is there a better trackpad out there than the Wacom bamboo touch?

- Has anyone here ever used a USB video card? If so, how well do they work? I need it to be able to drive a monitor at 1920x1200.

- What are laptops with a trackball like? Is it better or worse than the trackpad?

- What voltage does the ASUS MS248H need? I can't find this anywhere.

- Is this keyboard any good?


I guess that's it for now. I'll probably think of more questions pretty soon though.

EDIT: This isn't computer hardware related at all, but how should I go about cutting acrylic with a dremel? I'm worried the cutting wheel will melt it.

It needs to be wired. I really don't want to have more voltages than I absolutely need, and I'd rather not have to deal with Apple's horrible drivers.
