still think these are overrated on OzBargain. The small keyboard is a massive deal breaker IMO.

I've found that The Book Depository is cheapest so often that I don't bother searching on booko any more. YMMV of course.

not full-sized keyboard is a massive deal breaker IMO. I'm surprised that laptop has been so popular tbh.

also, people love to upvote refurbished Dell workstations and I fail to see how an old Thinkpad would pose any greater risk.
07/02/2018 - 16:04
more than enough. I have no trouble doing that on an old machine running a Q6600 which is about 5 or 6 generations older. haven't tried a...

that's because I think it's a great idea. I get around 6 hours on an old 9-cell, YMMV of course.

hmm, would recommend keeping an eye on gumtree and/or eBay for a X220/X230/T420/T430 Thinkpad over this I think... or on second thought...

your timing couldn't have been more perfect - I just replaced a 1TB hard drive in a old laptop with an SSD and have it lying around, thanks...

hot tip - just carry a spare tube and leave the repair kit at home for later. having said that though it wouldn't hurt to carry this as...

this is a side note, but what are people's thoughts on the MX300 vs an EVO 850?
31/01/2018 - 17:13
the bottle opener is a bit too awkward IMO, but these things are still pretty cool. I might grab another couple. Cheers OP.

I'll stick to org-mode.

shuffling from one burger bar to another really sounds like living it up. you can live a perfectly healthy lifestyle while still enjoying...

back to school? The kids these days must be sneaking a hell of a lot more gaming in than we used to.

when I have controlled lighting my Nikon D3 still renders the best digital image I've ever seen.
19/01/2018 - 11:45
either are complete overkill. get a secondhand x220. Or don't, more for me.
17/01/2018 - 23:26
just buy this ThinkPad. Its more than adequate and will be for a long time. there's no more reason to buy a more expensive machine than...

don't be ridiculous... provided you don't need a 4k video editing workstation or similar you can do school and uni work on 10 year old...

I agree with drew442's comments, and would also like to point out that the Dell doesn't have a full-sized keyboard either. Unless I was on...
15/01/2018 - 15:11
think its worth pointing out that this is NOT a full-sized keyboard. which is pretty normal for an 11" laptop I suppose, but if you're not...

surprised to be downvoted below threshold here... people much actually think they have some privacy on windows 10 lol
12/01/2018 - 22:27
this. can't imagine paying $90 for spyware.
12/01/2018 - 18:21
don't know who downvoted you on this, saving your $100 for a $400 wool suit on sale is excellent advice.

the game doesn't suffer from the "alpha player" problem, the players do.

Forbidden Desert is much better than Island and Pandemic IMO.

if you've been dealing out random roles, try playing with these ones instead: Medic, Researcher, Scientist, Dispatcher. also, make sure you...

wow, good find.
09/01/2018 - 11:52
looks like Smash Up and Isle of Skye are two of the best deals there. Codenames Pictures, The Resistance and Coup are great games for $20...
