      Why do they always release the new Ransits right after I buy one?
      If you believe in something sacrifice a hobo to it or don't bother.

        Blame Apple and their stupid two-part banners.

              Prebuilt systems suck compared to those you craft yourself, at least at the high end. We've got a guy here at work who's been fighting a boutique vendor for six weeks now - he finally got fed up and is sending his machine back for a refund. He's going to build his own, like I was telling him all along. People are afraid of doing it - I'm telling you Yaks, you could certainly build your own. It's not rocket science - at least not until you're trying to strap LN2 cooling onto it, anyway.

                Now that we have a desktop, I only use my old laptop when I am on the road for work and such.

                And yet I still want to spend a lot of money on a new laptop.

                  I get e-mails from Dell almost every day. They really, really want to sell me a lightweight laptop. And they have a new tablet-convertible to try with, too.

                    I have built several of my own, the one I am now is a madyaks creation.
                    I was just lookin, I keep going back and forth about building another or buying one.
                    Just seeing what's out there.

                        Put $100/month in a savings account. The price will continue dropping, and your account will grow, and the two will meet somewhere in the middle. And it'll be sooner than you think.

                            Is it worth building if you only want to spend 800$ or so?
