    Got Samson MediaOne BT3 Active Studio Monitors for 90$.

    Perfect for my Humble needs.

    PS:- I am not an Audiophile and neither do I like clutter on desk filled with AMPs and wires and what not. Food clutter is only junk allowed on desk.

    Well, I have right now a Dell Inspiron 2008 Model.

    I have changed its screen, its keyboard twice, its RAM, its HDD and its battery. Practically, just motherboard and CPU are original nothing else barring the outer shell.

    Do you think it is wise to curse Laptop's family when it cannot play smooth 1080p videos without shooting to 80% CPU usage?

    We decided to get a Laptop. A half decent one costs 500$. For 500$ I get a poor tiny screen, a asthmatic CPU, some horribly poor speed Memory, maybe 750GB of HDD at 5400 RPM and half arse in built buzzing speakers. Add to this my programming and gaming needs, it just manages to keep up.

    For the same money, I can get a i3-4360 setup with a 24" 1080p monitor and a good enough Studio Monitors with plenty of option to upgrade in near future.

    No wonder I am on a buying spree :D.
    VFM and tinkering is more important than brownie points for posting selfies via Laptop cam :p.

    I am about PC master race, anyone who follows the race is a win in my books.
    Laptops are just plain disgusting. I am not even going to talk about console peasants.

    Just received the 24" Acer.
    Boy, was I right or was I right.

    It is huge and absolutely gorgeous.

    Also, my first 1080p monitor :D.

    The crummy laptop can barely keep up.

    Got a Targus Backpack. The American Tourister was getting old, and the strap foam had gotten messed up with heavy usage. Two solid years of daily usage and loads of traveling.

    Targus bag 02.jpg Targus bag.jpg

    What I'm liking -

    - Many pockets, can easily segregate my stuff.

    What I'm not liking -

    - Many pockets, hard to remember what is where.

    Approx 2,650 INR.
