    17in, 3lb, 19hr Laptop LG Gram

    That's a sexy beast, and in a pretty small form factor for a 17" laptop! I'd definitely consider that, especially if it manages to meet the battery life claims. I find it interesting that LG is able to make such good laptops, but their phones are relatively meh. Even more perplexing is their great screens on everything but phones. Hopefully Linus gets one of these in for review. Funnily enough, this is barely larger than a 15" laptop. So. That isn't really an issue. You'll notice weight more than you'll notice an additional inch in height. No, why does it need one? You still need supported cooling, and that comes at a significant cost of weight and girth. Haha, who would have thought there's an entire market of consumers who aren't interested in gaming... ....sarcasm? I don't think Apple should exist either, but that's not going to change *shrug* Guess you can't come to terms with the fact some people don't have much space in their living environment, or simply don't require a desktop for what they do.
  2. For that price I really don't think you can do wrong. Did they have more stock?

    Building and selling pcs

    Oil and gas is a horrible suggestion. Predictions are a massive, massive drop in demand in that sector in the next decade or two. While yes, there will still be jobs, they will be held by people already in the sector, not people just going in.

    Building and selling pcs

    Don't plan on doing this as a job, or career. It's very hard to get into, and it's super expensive. You're better off buying PC's locally and parting them out, if you live in an area where there's lots on the buy and sell sites.

    Again, maybe you should actually read up on the incorrectness you spout before you spout it. https://www.mcgilldaily.com/2017/09/no-pronouns-wont-send-you-to-jail/ https://factcheck.afp.com/no-canadians-cannot-be-jailed-or-fined-just-using-wrong-gender-pronoun http://sds.utoronto.ca/blog/bill-c-16-no-its-not-about-criminalizing-pronoun-misuse/

    Who wants ltt case

    I don't think it'd ever happen. Unless it was just a case already in existence that just had LTT colorways and badging...in which case I wouldn't really be interested. I don't like them enough to spend more money to have their logos all over my stuff. Making a custom case is incredibly expensive.

    EBay 1TB 850 Evo $69

    Eh, I'd just wait for prices to drop. Predictions are that pricing will be that low anyway in a couple of months. I don't think it's nearly as reliable once it's refurbed. Plus who's to say this is actually manufacturer refurbished? It's not coming from Samsung direct, or even a regular retailer..

    EBay 1TB 850 Evo $69

    Hmmm. I don't know if I'd trust a refurbished SSD...
  11. Looks interesting, though I'm not sure how coding for that hole in the screen will play out. I'm sure they have some tricks up their sleeve, but I guess we'll have to wait and see. I'll probably skip that whole trend...which is surprising since I've always gotten a new phone every year. Though, Nokia's 9 might be something I'll strongly consider. I don't imagine they'll jump on that bandwagon. It should be noted that most people are saying the expensive version of the phone (the one everyone's crying about the price over) is supposed to be a massive, 6.7" version with 4 rear cameras and 5G connectivity. Given that we already know 5G will be more expensive, it's not surprising that it's priced so high, especially since it seems to pack a bunch of other hardware into it as well. Not sure why people can't here can't understand that there's a premium market, and Samsung is merely making a device to cater to it; if you're crying foul over the price, it's simply not meant for you. Comparing different devices doesn't make much sense. What would make it more interesting? I mean, once you have an all screen front...you're kinda stuck.. It's cheaper than the full fat version So it does make sense. Lite doesn't have to mean super cheap. So they simply shouldn't cater to those that can afford higher end devices? Kind of narrow minded, no? I'm guessing you got that subsidized though, no? There's going to be similar deals for the S10. It's not much more than this years S series, so I'm not sure why you're shocked. Also, the 2k version has 1TB of storage, 5G, and is likely a much different device than most people looking at the S series would want; it's more of a Note competitor. No notification light was why I didn't consider the OP6T. That, and the deal I got on the S8. I have a feeling in a couple of years I'll have no choice but to abandon the notification light for always on displays, and I just hope by then they aren't nearly as taxing on the battery I don't think they're ready yet...I mean, it is on their roadmap, so it's not like they're not working towards it. It takes a lot of tech to put cameras under the display. Never understood the comparison between Apple and Android. Most people are in one camp or the other, and they're not going to change. Haha I didn't mind my Nexus 5, but it was far from a premium device...speakers sucked, build quality was meh. Camera was also meh. Stepped up to a Note5 after that and was much, much happier. Battery finally lasted through the day too.
  12. Haha yeah. I'm currently waiting on CES to see if they actually reveal their new cards, and what the claims are. The rumors look...very enticing. I'm also quite torn between 4GB and 8GB. I likely wouldn't keep the card for more than a year, and I only play a handful of games. Most of the comparisons I've seen show that it's basically the same as the 8GB, aside from one or two titles...
  13. Hmmm I've always wanted to try it. Maybe it'll go on sale during the Steam sale.

    Advice for migration

    I wouldn't live in Australia, too many things that will try and kill you If you can survive there though, good on you. I'd probably say Norway or Switzerland, closer to the EU so you can still enjoy a lot of what it has to offer. Depending on where you're coming from, they may or may not be too open to you based on what's been happening in recent times. Something to consider. I naturally love Canada, however it's not the cheapest place to live (for the good parts). No. No we didn't. Get your facts straight. Why not? It's one of the most beautiful countries on the planet, super safe, etc.

    Gaming Build

    The 2600, though if you can wait a bit I'd see what Zen2 looks like.
