    Nope, I brought back the Lenovo one. The MSI one was about the same price so it was almost an even exchange.

    Will having a gaming laptop allow you to type 1000 word documents more easily than a $300 el cheapo? Not really. Indeed unless your school work includes complicated 3d modelling, complicated video editing (my near 15 year old core2 setup with a couple of gigs of RAM can do school level 3d modelling just fine, would chug if I needed to do a modern 1000 part assembly and run all the analysis on it, similar story for video editing) it is not going to make a lot of odds.

    The main downside will tend to be that gaming laptops were once known as desktop replacements and tend to be a lot heavier. The upsides will be that you can play a lot more modern games and that they tend to be built slightly better than the $300 el cheapos, though I have seen my share of gaming grade laptops designed and built by drunken interns (alienware do some things right but some things less so).

    I forgot
    Welp, got an LCD cable for a laptop that I assumed was an issue with the display, but it turns out it's actually the screen itself, so now I've bought a replacement screen.


    EDIT: Also ordered a replacement charger for my Surface Book, cuz my cat decided to chew on mine, and also ordered a faucet water filter.

    I'll be to watch porn, play Overwatch, and take notes at the same time.
    Who cares? It's not your money so don't worry about it.

    Pre-cut battery wraps. 18650 and AA size. Few of my 18650 are old and have damaged wrapping, got a couple of AA as well that aren't looking too nice either.

    Got my MacBook in today but amazon kept screwing up on the payment for my charger.

    They kept trying to charge a master card that I've deleted from my account because it was one of those master card gift cards that had no more money on it. I guess it was just glitching or something. (The app).
    So I'm getting the charger on Tuesday.

    Going to clean the MacBook for now cause there is some glue on it from tape/stickers. Other than that it's not it as bad of shape I thought it was going to be.

    I may put a 1tb hdd in it not sure yet, i have a extra one laying around or I may just buy a cheap ssd for it. But I'm leaning more towards the 1tb hdd over the ssd.


    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    These were honestly the last great laptops released by Apple. Take out the cd drive and put in a second hdd.

    I've used a mac before but this is my 1st mac that's mine. I don't want to remove the DVD drive cause I'm going to use it and I won't really need more space than what I have.

    Went to a fan convention yesterday. Picked up three autographs (Finn, Gaten, Caleb) from Stranger Things. Bought two homemade cloth pouches (Star Wars vehicles/Steven Universe cookie cat coin purse). Bought a vial of fake gel blood (the darker looking stuff that stays where you put it)...
