"I'll just take my Mac to the Apple store and they'll fix it for me" – Linus

buy a prebuilt one and keep upgrading it

My last question ' i should buy branded or not 😬 caz the video was over my head 😅'

is this vpn better than tunnelbear's?

RIP NCIX. 🙁

CyberPower builds pretty good towers for cheap, saw a 1080ti + i7 + 16GB RAM tower for less than $2000.

Tunnel bear

smiling from heavensI loved that hidden joke about fixing MAC xDD

RIP NCIX! I miss NetLinked so much.

"What are you, high? Ill just take my macbook to the apple store and they will fix it for me"

Oof…. that one uh… that one didnt age well, now did it linus?

I'm sorry, did 2014 seriously not have 30c less on quality water cooling?

i had my build this year with 580$. if i were to buy it from retail store would'd cost me 799$. I had months of research before tho and the build itself took about 2 weeks with all the parts waiting to be delivered.

Just ran the numbers and the people who buy pre-built at walmart a getting a $75ish dollar monitor and a mouse and keyboard for only 20 dollars more than building it yourself…except it's not very upgradeable if at all
