Any Verified Actual Gamer Program Information in the video

If there was, by the time you posted this and got an answer, they would be sold out.

 

In any case since they just did a drop like two days ago it's somewhat unlikely they'll do another for at least a week or so.

Goal Zero makes similar stuff. I picked up a Yeti 3000 last year when my building had a partial power loss right in the middle of the COVID madness. Helped keep my fridge/freezer on while letting me still use a microwave, toaster and razor. Extension cords definitely came in handy. The number of charging ports on it is really nuts - two regular AC bricks can plug in at the same time, a dedicated port for a huge fast charger, and will also handle 6x200W of solar panels.

 

The only downside is that the charging cables/splitters you need are proprietary, Lose or break one and it's not easy to find replacements.

 

If you live in an area (or building) where power is "sketchy" it's wise to invest in one of these purely to keep your fridge and other essentials on. My poor neighbor was not so lucky and ended up tossing all his food out the next day. These aren't cheap solutions by any means, but when you really need it you will be glad that you've got one, especially when you realize what can happen when you don't.

"PC": You gave him a new macbook, a dock, a monitor and storage.

 

Gotta love that clickbait

Judge the product by its own merits, not by the Company that created it.

 

Don't dilute <good thing> by always trying to focus on, and drag conversation back to, <bad thing>.

A PC can also be a general term. Personal Computer. Which a Mac still is.

I don't think anybody ever called laptops PCs. In a general sense phones are PCs, but we still call them phones to avoid confusion. Of course, some people just want to see the world burn, so they started calling laptops notebooks. They could have called them PPCs (Portable Personal Computers), but they had to call them something I used to write on with a pencil. It's madness, I'm telling you. If they were calling tablets notebooks, I would still understand it, since those are pretty close, but no, laptops are notebooks and Macs are PCs. It's a mad, mad, mad, mad world.
