I have been through allot, huge weekend project. For those who werent in my previous threads, I have two dell XPS M1210s, shit, but I got them free. I decided I want to grow more neckbeard and start using linux, by starting with getting one of those working with it. The main problem with them was that one had a broken fan that overheated, and the other had a broken charging jack, I used one as a charger and one as a working device for a bit through yesterday. Then through the last few hours I have taken both apart, fixed the fan on the charging one and put them back. I already knew since they had different chips on the mobo that they were different series of the model or something, but when I started the newly constructed laptop and tried to start #! installation, it froze. I thought of the fact it's 64 bit immediately and tried 32 bit #! and it launched the live just fine. Clearly one is 32 bit, one is 64 bit. My question to you /g/ is if I should go through the trouble of taking the 64 bit cpu from the dead laptop and putting it in the working one or just use 32 bit?
TL;DR Is it worth it to replace a cpu in a laptop just so I can get 64 bit linux
ps. I understand it can't use all the ram and I do have 4gb in there bit I believe that's the max of 32 bit anyways.

I've got a ns-24e730a12 Insignia monitor, and it has two HDMI ports, but I can't get my Xbox working using either port. The ports can't be the problem, because my computer will work on either one, whereas the Xbox won't. The controllers can turn on the Xbox, but not connect, and I've read that this is because of a problem with the HDMI. I've also tried changing the resolution to 420p, 720p, 1080p and 1080i, to no avail.
I've also tried turning my monitor off, then turning the xbox on then the tv back on, as well as unplugging the power cord and then plugging it back in, neither of those work.
How can I make it so my Xbox will work on this monitor?

Planning on getting a Mac Mini as a HTPC to replace my Raspberry Pi. I plan to replace the HDD with a 64 GB SSD and install XBMC.
However before I pull the trigger on this, are there any other similar powered machines that are the same size (7x7" or smaller). (Size is the factor here, not price, if its cheaper thats awesome, but if its larger then no).
For power requirements I just need to be able to play 1080p 10 bit chinese cartoons, as well as downoad from usenet (which includes the processing power needed for par2ing which RPi chokes on).
