Not totally, plenty of people have no idea what a VPN is or how to use one. It's a similar thing to the DNS poisoning used here to block...

I wouldn't call liking smaller laptops strange...Laptops were originally designed to be portable! I wouldn't go a 720p screen though on any...

Also depends on what you are doing with it/what you need a new one for? I'm hanging out for new AMS CPUs and Nvidia GPUs later this year...

If you do a subscribe and save the 5Kg option is likely better though, as that's the normal price, so it will always come at $25.20. This...

When using my device as a laptop and not docked, I use the touchscreen more than anything else. Wouldn't consider a laptop without it,...

Agreed, I've got some family that work in the industry and they actually won't buy cars that have too low a number of Kms for pretty much...

Not particularly. We average about 5000kms per year in ours. This is an average of 4000kms/yr, so doesn't seem particularly odd to me as we...

Agreed on the energy savings, but it's a lot easier to find stuff in an upright! We keep a 280L Hisense freezer in our garage and it's...

That's what I did when renting and didn't want another 12 month commitment. In the end, if you're still paying rent why would they want the...

I used to work for them as well and know a couple of people contracting in there, I believe that they generally have a one-week notice...

I can understand income protection changing due to a shoulder injury but seems like madness that life insurance got rejected! Seems like...

Not really. I have a bunch that I never use just to get these sign-up offers. It's not like credit cards where they show up on credit...

Interested to know why you think a 27" is too big? I went from a 23" to a 32" last year and sometimes wish I had more. I only use a single...

If you have a mortgage and kids it would be silly not to have life insurance. Otherwise your family will probably be struggling to get by...

Just don't answer the phone? I never answer a call unless it's from a contact saved in my contact list as it's almost always going to be...

It's a good deal if you refinance after they hike the rates back up after the initial offer, but that really depends on how much you are...

If you depend on the regular pay cheque then it's risky, but can depend on the size of the redundancy as well, some companies pay a lot...
28/07/2020 - 22:42
Depends on a number of factors. How big would a redundancy be, how in demand are your skills/is your industry impacted/what's your current...

I have NEST protects and they are great. Can shut them off with an ap if we burn some toast or similar, rather than having to get something...

Agreed, probably not much of a drop I wouldn't think, but the market pricing of cards is probably going to depend on what AMD release and...

Holding on for the 3000 series myself. There's plenty of deals pop up on graphics cards anyway, so even if you decide to stick with the...

One of my favourite musical movies/stage shows. Personal preference though, up to you to decide whether you like it. I personally think...

Probably be 5 years-ish before I upgrade it. I'm not too worried about spending $150-200 more to have that ability.

My monitor is 4K so EOL socket doesn't bother me as everything is GPU bound right now. I'm in need of a system refresh as mine is 6 years...

The Asus TUF GAMING X570 motherboard is on Amazon for <$300, shipping from the US though.
25/07/2020 - 14:42
I don't think it would impact value at all. Our kitchen is on the North West corner of our house with a small window on the north and a...

I have also read that if you actually feel thirsty it means you are already dehydrated and should have been drinking more earlier. I only...

+1 to this, my eldest really didn't care about gifts until he hit about 3 years old (may be a bit younger in reality as both of mine have...
