How about Scrapyard Wars, but in a country where English is not the main language?

And to make things harder, make sure that next to no one in that country uses Craigslist.

If so, I also recommend Solus to be on the show, due to Ikey's outlook upon the subject (who knows, perhaps Linus will use Linux more often on-screen as a result).

Hey guys,

Just want some community feedback on this. Most of these things are already in the queue to some degree. Just trying to prioritize...

Have you guys considered reviewing some Sharkoon Items, I see the last Sharkoon item on LTT youtube channel is the XTATIC headset you guys did 7 years ago, They have some really affordable gaming things like mice, keyboards, cases. Was just thinking as their items are a bit more affordable for the guys that cannot afford the latest and best gaming peripherals.

 

Just a thought :)

Do: "how to find if mobo or cpu is dead", (I can send my i7 3700s and Asus H61M-K mobo, for free idk, I don't need them anymore)

and to channel SUPER fun

-Playing airsoft, paintball, snowball tdm or capture the flag,

-Try to invent somethings to get something done, example: pen sharpener, or more safe: PC/console that works as pizza oven

This could be interesting: https://www.amazon.com/1Pack-Micro-Memory-Adapter-Converter/dp/B01MU59ACL/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&qid=1509538124&sr=8-2&keywords=10+x+micro+SD+to+SATA+SSD+Adapter+&+RAID+Quad+2.5"+SATA+Converter&dpID=51aZ7RZ500L&preST=_SY300_QL70_&dpSrc=srch&linkCode=sl1&tag=thegadg0e-20&linkId=a96d41c20aa1a8d9e7687458bb289e38

Load Windows 10 onto here and do some benchmarks with things like different SD cards to see how much of a performance difference there is. I wonder if mixing and matching SD cards is a possibility...

Hey Linus, could you please try to review the Autonomous Smart Desk 2? I've seen you review the Updesk a while ago but i'm really curious about the Autonomous one. Would be cool to see you put it together since i'm planning on getting the DIY one myself. So far it looks really good and sturdy and it's also cheap so it's good for those of us who are on a tighter budget. I'm hoping you could show us whether or not it's too good to be true or not.

 

Thanks alot!

Battle-stations that are more than just a PC. I have a setup that allows me to play PS4, watch my home theatre system and have full use of my computer all at once. Remember, a battle-station is more than just a computer. It's a setup, usually conducive to multitasking. The focus is on as much screen time as possible. Throw in a mini-fridge, a George Foreman grill and a diaper and you could game all day!

LOLOL

If you ever scroll through Facebook and see those sponsored ads for that Wish app, you've probably seen computer components on there. Those no-name, knock-off, unbranded, sketchy components that take like 3 weeks to be delivered to you. I've had the app before for things like shirts and stuff, but I always wondered what it would be like to build a system with as many components from that app as possible to see how worth it those components would be. Along with the attached photos, they have stuff like graphics cards and a quite sketchy looking PSU.

A topic video that I think would be interesting is to revisit x Games one PC but instead of using Steam In-Home Streaming give it a try with Parsec ( https://parsec.tv/),

 

Parsec, which among other things supports 60+ fps, multiple connections, native support for playback over an Internet connection, and not limited to Steam Games. Videos of Parsec in action can be found on YouTube :

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0xpbxEWFnFrkdFkTJuJFQw/videos

 

Here's a few videos covering the co-play feature:

If running on Windows Creators Edition+ remember to turn off Game Mode:

I'm sure that this probably has already been listed here, but with the R5 2500U and R7 2700U laptops just around the corner (hopefully some are being sent to you), I would love to see a teardown of the HP Envy x360 with the 2500U in it as well as to see if you can get it to run with DDR4-3000 SO-DIMMs (assuming the RAM is not soldered) to see if it will even boot and if so, whether you receive a performance boost...
