    Your Laptop Picture [H]ere (read first post for rules please)

    Got myself a Surface Pro 3 this week. It's a lot more portable than my Envy 17. :D i5, 8gb ram, 256gb SSD configuration. Pretty nice deal at Best Buy right now. $100 off sale + $100 off EDU discount + free year of Office 365. http://i.imgur.com/DT1TUXi.jpg

    What kind of chair do you use for your gaming pc?

    Did you compare this chair to other high end ergonomic chairs like the Herman Miller chairs or similar offerings? I'm curious what made you choose this particular chair. I'm also in the market for a new chair.

    Diablo 3 Discussion Thread

    Yes, you can adjust the difficulty. I believe class specific set items only drop on Torment 1 or higher. You can still get all other legendaries at lower difficulty.

    Official EQNext Landmark Thread.

    This is a good short and sweet explanation. As far as what "transfers" from EQ:L to EQ:N so far the only thing we really know is having EQ:L will "unlock" the Adventurer class in EQ:N whatever that means. They also hinted at some other benefits for Founder's Pack purchasers, but they haven't...

    X: Rebirth official thread.

    I'm really looking forward to reviews and mods for this game. I'm hoping there will be some awesome ship mods. I don't mind having only one ship. Someone just needs to make a Firefly mod.

    Anyone try ' Wanam Xposed ' on Samsung phones ?

    Yes. Root is easy to achieve. However, you have to be careful how to do it so you don't trip the Knox counter if you care about your warranty. So far no one has discovered a way to reset the Knox counter. Chainfire (the guy responsible for Triangle Away) said it's unlikely we'll find a way...

    Anyone try ' Wanam Xposed ' on Samsung phones ?

    I'm using Stark icons. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=kov.theme.stark I came from a Galaxy S3 and love the Note 3's battery life. It's more than double the screen on time. The S3 struggled to get more than 3 hours of screen on time. The Note 3 easily gets more than 6.

    Anyone try ' Wanam Xposed ' on Samsung phones ?

    I'm using it right now with my Note 3. Works like a charm and it's more stable since the recent update. It use to cause random reboots every now and then because of Android 4.3 compatibility, but since the update I haven't had any reboots. WANAM allowed me to theme some important areas of the...

    Galaxy Note 3 to pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor

    Samsung's WatchOn app to be precise. It works pretty well.

    Rooting and flashing custom software on the Galaxy Note 3 causes hardware damage?

    Apps that require root is the big one for me. I no longer flash custom roms like crazy like I did on the Galaxy S. On the S3 I flashed a custom rom on it a few times and stuck with the same rom for years. Rooted apps that I find indispensable on the Note 3: Greenify - to prevent Facebook and...

    Galaxy Note 3 to pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor

    Widget Locker. You can configure a variety of locks that can access apps quickly. I have 4 showing here, but you could add 4 more by including the diagonal directions. There's a Sense UI locker included as well.

    Galaxy Note 3 to pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor

    I just upgraded from the GS3 to the Note 3 and it's a huge upgrade. The battery life is insane comparatively (about double in real world use). The larger screen and higher resolution makes it great upgrade even over the Note 2. I happen to like the more squarish design of the Note 3 compared...

    Galaxy Note 3 to pack Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor

    You can probably do it if you're rooted and change the CPU governor or something, but I don't see the point. Doing so will probably just cause the device to heat up more than necessary while gaining a negligible amount of performance.

    LG's latest super phone, the G2. 5.2" 1080p, Snapdragon 800, 3000mAh...

    Only major flaw with this phone is lack of a microSD slot. Wish it had one. As such, it's off my list of phones to consider. For anyone that doesn't need a microSD slot and wants something smaller than the Note 3, this looks like an amazing phone.

    I took a break from GW2 as well and recently started playing again. If you like events, you'll like some changes they've made and some quality of life things you can do to track and participate in events. Below is a like to a mod that allows you to see active events in the game. Particularly...

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    So tough deciding which package to get. I'm looking at getting one of the 300i promotions. Does anyone know if the 350R has upgradeable weapon systems? Essentially I want to be able to upgrade the 350R with the weapon systems of the 325a. I want a twin engine fighter!

    Sins of a Solar Empire

    I'd pay good money for Homeworld 3. The original is still the best space game I've ever played. Sins is a good game, but it's a totally different style of gameplay.

    The Official Guild Wars 2 thread

    Just because a game isn't perfect, doesn't mean it's not immensely enjoyable. The flaws he pointed out are very real and needs to be addressed, however, the flaws are greatly overshadowed by how enjoyable the game is despite the flaws.

    Corsair Obsidian 550d?

    I thought about getting a fan controller, but the only fan I can actually hear now that everything is put together is the 140mm exhaust fan. And even then, it's a please whooshing sound. Based on a suggestion, I swapped out all my red SATA cables for black ones with 90 degree connectors that...

    Corsair Obsidian 550d?

    I was going to go ITX, but decided to just go will a full sized build. I've been eyeing this case for a long time. I got the AF120's and SP120's mixed up so I have to go get a few exchanged today and also get an AF140 for the exhaust. I didn't know the exhaust could hold a 140mm fan...

    HOT: Ivy Bridge CPUs @ MicroCenter (in store only)

    Just picked up the i5 3570k for $169.99 and an Asus P8Z77-V Pro motherboard for $149.99 (that's with the $40 off combo). Also picked up a bunch of other parts for my build. Not too shabby of a deal. The fan controller software, built in wireless card, and debugging LED's made it worth it...

    HP ENVY dv7-7212nr Laptop

    Nice video. Good laptop. I'm just sad HP discontinued their real Envy line and instead rebadged the DV series with the Envy branding. The Envy 15/17 were in a different league than the DV6/DV7 for the same price. Seems like HP is no longer catering to the enthusiast crowd. In any case...

    Surface Pro - Coming in January - 64GB @ $899 - 128GB @ $999 - Cover optional

    Yea. Based on what an Ivy bridge MacBook Air gets (with a 50whr battery vs 42whr on the Surface Pro), I'd say you're right on the money. I'm just hoping for more somehow.
