    How do you guys like the ultrawides for gaming?

    I bought it for $840 and 3 weeks later it dropped to $750 on amazon. This was August. It seems to have went back up in price. Gaming wise, I love it, but I honestly only play one game (Diablo 3). The big thing that I miss is being able to split the screen into 2 monitors. I still have this...

    Amazon is having a Blizzard sale.

    The base game includes all expansion except the most recent. So if you think of it, its exactly the same way it was during the first expansion. It means if someone that hasnt played in years wants to get back into it, they still have to pay the $30-40 bucks on the current expansion, but not...

    I am using this phone now (got it for $125 new from the same seller as above). It is a great phone so far, but not having google services is the killer for me. I don't even care about the play store, if It had a good working google services. I have downgraded to 4.6.3 and have the play...

    Post Your Workstations 2015

    The main reason I got it is because I have he same one at work, and didn't like jumping between split and not split. I absolutely love the mouse. I wouldn't say the keyboard is anything special though.

    You can buy as many of the $19 courses that you want during the special. You get access to them for life, so you can do them when ever you want, or redo them as a refresher later. I bit on one, and they immediately sent me a 75% off next purchase coupon.

    What do you use your tablet for?

    I have been tempted, but like you I no longer have netflix. I was leaching off my parents since they only used it for the disk in mail. Since netflix changed their subscriptions, I canceled their streaming capabilities to save them money. From what I have read though, it still has some bugs...

    This is the exact opposite of what he needs. Male usb to 20 pin adapter is what he needs. I did some searching, but nothing is coming up, looks like the easiest bet is to get a pcie usb3.0 with 20 pin.

    Diablo-like RPG's for Xbox Arcade?

    Am I stupid to consider a M11x as a gaming machine?

    From someone that bought the m11x for exactly what you are trying, I would say no. It plays the games fine, but the 11 inch screen is the killer. I thought I would get over it, as I have never been the "high res" gamer type. If you plan on playing any kind of game with a UI, like RPGs, its...

    Life's too short for rebates

    There are rebate companies that will bid on the price to provide x amount of rebates. This bid is usually less than the total amount, and the rebate company is gambling that there will be enough people not filling out the paperwork that in the end they make a profit.
