    Apple 27" iMac with Retina 5K Display (Late 2014) B&H

    After my experience with a MBP retina for 1 yr+(work lappy so used A LOT) I'd say if it works without weird problems great. But for me, the frequent crashes when plugging in DP monitor AND random crashes beside that made me decide that it's not worth the headaches. If it were for use at home...

    Warm - GTA-V Steam sale - $40

    I'lll wait 'til GTA6 comes out. My backlog for PC *only* stretches back to early 2000's. sad :o

    Silicon Power S60 120GB SSD - $27.99AC

    I'd take switched controller(the flash remains the same) over refurb'd. Besides the packaging actually looks different between the old and the new ver. I highly doubt refurb means they resolder the mem chips, but if gambling with your data is worth that 100 when the new price will be dropped to...

    Cities: Skylines - After Dark $11.55 at GMG

    Bought Cities: Skylines shortly after it came out, but stopped playing after experiencing crashes for no reason(system does not crash, games crashes itself). Wonder if they've released patches to fix the crashes :confused:

    Nexus 6 32GB $350 64GB $400 From Amazon

    FWIW I use only the chatting app, weather and navigation, as well as checking email on my phone. I do my banking in person or on my computer(because I prefer not having to enlarge tiny text on the phone to see where the heck I'm typing), and my music listening on the go is strictly limited to...

    Acer E5-573G-56RG 15.6" 1080p laptop - $499

    Now if only it was 14" laptop, I'd be willing to pay maybe 200 more. Not too fond of lugging around a 5lbs laptop with me anymore...

    GTX 980 K|NGP|N $499.99 [EVGA Store]

    Peasants? LOL I can buy 4 of these and do quad SLI if I choose to right now, but I got better things to waste my money on, so I guess I'm one of the peasants ;)

    ps4 controllers $38 at Ratuken

    Yup, Ordered my Vid from them. Did not use the CC card for 10 days prior to that. 3 days after purchase got notice from CC company telling me card looks to have been compromised. Buy at your own risk...

    If You Missed Prime Day This is for You

    I'd argue that you literally cannot steal your own car since you OWN the car. It's only stealing when an item does NOT belong to you. But I digress :D

    Prime Day is Coming 7/15/2015

    USPS still has pension and considering they pay the work they do is not that punishing. Besides that 55 gallon of "water" on one pallet equates to 240L+, which is >240kg. At that weight whoever is delivering wouldn't be carrying it without a forklift anyway. Besides, the majority of the reviews...

    Newegg FantasTech Sale Tomorrow

    The MX100 deal was pretty decent, a solid 20 percent off the usual $200. Granted it'll be at that price in ~3 months, but I could use moving my laptop to SSD now, so I bit.

    Prime Members get MX100 512GB for $160

    I don't think stacked/3D has anything to do with endurance/write cycles. That just makes the memory higher density. I could care less if it goes faster by 15%. I'm not doing time critical work on my personal use laptop and my work would go straight to enterprise level SSD(read SLC) anyway...

    Western Digital My Passport Ultra Black 2 TB, $79

    Just a heads up. Somewhere else it was mentioned that these 2.5" HDD no longer use SATA connection to the connector board(to convert to usb 3.0). Instead, these HDD have soldered-on USB ports, so if you intend to buy this and take out the HDD and shove into a PS4, these new WD 2.5" external HDD...
