    good deal(s) for surge protector?

    Yup, I bought a Brickwall surge protector 9 years ago, it was $200 but I feel that it saved me a couple of times already. It is certainly not cheap that people are looking for, but I am protecting over $5k worth of equipment, I think $200 (235 now it looks like) is a worthy investment.

    Batman Arkham Asylum $0.99 at OnLive

    Get the microconsole. I hooked it up to the same HDTV and compare the visual quality of the HTPC and the resolution is noticeably higher. Thru the MC, it looks like the 360/PS3 game. But it also demands higher bandwidth (and have slightly more graphical hiccups).

    Nook Color E-Reader

    I have both nook classic and nook color. Get the eink Nook (touch) if you read mostly novels/text. Get Nook color if you want a tablet like experience, or read more PDFs. I find myself being able to read a lot faster on the nook classic than on nook color. Plus I can read longer without...

    Nook Color Question

    I think it syncs if you bought the book from B&N, but don't quote me on it. Sideloaded books, obviously, does not sync.

    Good laptop for grad school?

    I am in the same boat, going to grad school this fall. However, my needs require a beefier CPU. I am waiting for Lenovo's X220t convertible. This will allow me to take notes in class with wacom, and enough power to run my programs. It is a bit out of your price range (starting $1200), but...

    Lenovo Multimedia Remote w/ Keyboard $29.99

    I have this and like it a lot. However, I would have liked the rollerball to be a button so I don't have to move my thumb to click.

    iPad Buyers Remorse

    I am quite happy with the iPad purchase. I am not an Apple head, in fact, this is my first Apple product I have ever purchased (no iPhone/iMac/iPod in the past or future). iPad is really great for everyday email/internet/eDoc reading. It is a bonus that I can stream movies from my home...

    ASUS P6X58D-E

    This mobo is on sale at newegg this week for $190 (a $20 code is needed). I bought this for $240 just last week (and now it is permanently at $210). Newegg is nice enough to credit me back $50! :)

    FS: HTPC parts (Opteron 146, ASUS A8N-E mobo, 2GB PC 3200 ram, etc)

    I just upgraded my HTPC of 4 years, and have the following parts FS. I just disassembled them earlier this week, so other than a little dust, everything works perfectly (I have never overlock this CPU or the videocard). My priority is to sell these as a package, with the individual prices...

    ASUS P6X58D-E

    I can't compared to other mobos, I haven't upgraded in 5 years. I just finished putting everything together last night, everything worked very smoothly the first time through. Windows 7 installed without a hitch. I have not messed with any of the OC/settings yet. I considered the premium...

    ASUS P6X58D-E

    I just got this board today, and got a really really dumb question. I thought I could reuse my old IDE dvd drive, but there is no IDE connector on mobo, do I need to get a SATA dvd drive and plug it into one of the SATA slot? It has been 5 years since I build my last computer, lol.

    FS: Canon Digital Rebel XT SLR + 2 Lenses + 1GB + 2 Batt + Bag + Remote $650

    This is such a sweet deal, I am surprised that it has not been sold. Too bad I already have the same camera, so I am only interested in that 300mm lense (like everyone here) and some batteries (if you ever split this up).
