I had a La Z Boy chair which was okay but it had no headrest and my neck would always hurt. I've tried the following: 1. Nobelchairs Epic - way too firm 2. AkRacing Pro...

    I just read up on it and my power outlet where I plug in my extension cord for my entire desk is directly behind my computer, could that be causing a shift in EMI.

    Microsoft memory diagnostic says no errors. As for the PSU I'm not exactly sure what you're referring to, could you be a little more specific.

    What does the average user of an Asus or Alienware gaming laptop look like?

    lol, every time I see one of those bags I have the uncontrollable urge to kick it. But no really carrying around 15 lbs on your back for 8 to 10 hours a day is not easy.

    What does the average user of an Asus or Alienware gaming laptop look like?

    Because while the laptop is nothing by its self its not going into a backpack by its self, its going in there with another 5 lbs to 6 lbs of gear, which is what makes it heavy and difficult to carry.

    lol, like this. Back to topic I got a 6 lbs laptop and a $50 Targus laptop backpack, that thing has a ton of cushion and I can still feel the weight. And yeah I work out too. But I bet Rambo would have no prob walking around with an Asus G750 in his backpack. (Someone who's good with photoshop...

    What does the average user of an Asus or Alienware gaming laptop look like?

    I'm asking this question because while companies like MSI and Gigabyte are coming out with lightweight and portable gaming laptops Asus still seems to do the exact opposite. Just look at the new MSI GE60 GTX 860M, Core i7, and 5.28lbs or the Gigabyte P25W GTX 770M, Core i7, and 5.73 lbs...

    Looking for a good and loud computer speaker system, any ideas?

    Update: So I was debating between a lot of systems and in the end my brand loyalty won out on me and I chose the Corsair SP2500 for a couple reasons: 1. They were on sale 2. In Corsair I trust: my SSD, PSU, and Case are all by Corsair. So do you guys think it was good buy for $200?

    Best single drive solution for Laptop: HDD, SSD, or SSHD?

    Way I see it there are 3 options for upgrading a laptop hard drive, but I'm not sure which is the best: 1. HDD: 7,200 RPM > 5,400 RPM(what most laptops come with) 2. SSD: Fastest most reliable storage, but is far more expensive and doens't last long when its by its self* 3. SSHD: 5,400 RPM...
