MX Black's actuation force is fine with me. I'm a pianist and I've used quite a few pianos with rather stiff, resistant keys so my fingers are fine with it. It's just that over time it might cause some fatigue and I don't like using them for every day typing. I like having some sort of tactile bump or click (not that the click matters when I'm wearing headphones or anything. I can still hear it which is nice though. I love the sound!). Problem is though that it might annoy some people around me or give away that I'm on a computer, so I sort of want 2-3 boards, one with MX Green, MX Blue, and MX Brown. $300 for all 3 which is expensive though. I'm probably going to get the new WASD V2 coming out in May and hopefully have it so that the board uses all MX Blue, Brown, or Green and then have the arrows keys switched to MX Black or Red for gaming use since having a click on them messes me up a bit sometimes when playing Dirt 3 since I don't have anything else to use. The thing though is that arrow keys aren't pressure sensitive so I don't see a point in me for doing that, and I'm going to be primarily using a gamepad.

Got a Razer Blackwidow 2013 Ultimate.

 

 

OMFG. I need to buy from Best Buy more. I just realized that they ACTUALLY don't care. And will price match whatever the hell it is you want.

 

I showed them the new ad from Amazon where some dude was selling it for $115 and BAM. Add in my gift cards and bam. Got it for $47

 

Yes, this is the 2013 model.

 

 

 

 

I know these things have QC problems. But I don't care. Why? I bought it from Best Buy. 30 day return policy with a policy on you can return it however the F it was. They don't check.

Nice.

Eh, I probably won't spend more than $500-$700 (still a lot, considering I built my desktop for that much). With Intel's Haswell though, as far as they've shown with the HD4000, it might actually bring some light gaming to Ultrabooks without discrete/dedicated graphics.

Their price does not seem to competetive to me, but we shall see.

RT should be called Windows 8 Tablet edition really. It's not supposed to be the full windows 8 experience. Sadly the name give people too high expectations.

Yeah, except these are not as weird as yours. It's more like a regular keyboard and doesn't have as much space in the middle.

 

If they have the money, I do them the favor and just tell them to get the MBP. Why? Help another brother out(as in help their tech family member out). You would not believe the number of questions I get on MY STUPID COMPUTER IS BROKEN, and , WHY WON'T THIS WORK, and WTF!. It is so much easier to just tell them that that program won't run and that they messed up.

Way too many. Even that one can't run most apps. Hell, it can't run most.

 

I wonder why I even started the other thread in the first place sometimes lol.

Hope you meant 1500$ since I can't do much work on a $500 laptop.

If you were a business man. Would you care that an item that only those with money can buy was being sold?

 

Fooled? If you actually talk to many people. They actually know it can't run many things.

 

Name another mass produced computer series that has a good built in DAC and ADC with good headphone amp. Name which mass personal computer OEMs have the lowest failure rates(that would be ASUS, Samsung and Apple tied, of which Apple uses parts from those two). 

 

Their commercials say it all. It just works. Consumers are not that smart. They need a simple system. 

 

It doesn't game and doesn't have muscle. Apple never made claims of being a gaming powerhouse. Most know it. And power? Well that's a luxury. It runs most things fine.

 

They have expensive cables, and accesorries. Which company doesn't? If it's a proprietary thing. It is expensive. Again, its a luxury. If you can buy the product. You can buy their stuff. 

 

As a main computer. I would never buy a Mac as of right now. I have one as my secondary portable system. It just works.

So you don't think a ton of people that own MBPs are complete morons that just have MBPs because they don't have a clue? Forget it being good for for audio and a good DAC, I'm talking about plebs that check their email, post on fb and watch youtube videos and that's all they use their MBP for. I understand what you're saying that people need simplicity but your average computer user is an idiot no matter how simple it is, I work in tech support and I talk to apple users all the time that have absolutely no clue what the URL bar is. Even if these people need to save up for a MBP they will because they think it's so great. I would say the average MBP user only uses there computer for facebook, youtube, email, sharing photos, netflix, itunes. That's not rocket science no matter if its on a MBP or a windows laptop.

 

This is all coming from a guy that owned two Macbooks

Couldn't stop myself.

Ordered a KBT Pure, blue backlit with MX browns.

 

Also got an IE80, some white paracord, some blue paracord and a new reservoir.

Funny. It was my sister who got into CCS and Hunter X Hunter. I didn't get hooked until several years later, though.

$200 laptops is what most African people use. It is the basics.

Morons? Harsh language. Do you know how to run a power plant? Design the architecture to a house? Set up a tunnel water pipping system? Each person has their own speciality. But because they aren't too good in computers doesn't mean that they are morons. 

 

Haha. I read /r/talesfromtechsupport

 

There are some idiots in there. 

 

There are many Win PC morons too.

 

Well, why do people buy new cars? They have the disposable income, and it is in their norm to do so.

 

This is comming from a guy with a family of iProducts and Macbooks.

 

I see your point. But my view point is universal. People can get what they want. And following the capitalist system, a company will thrive if it offers products or services that others want.

I'm assuming that he is talking about Cardcaptor Sakura.

Cards in anime are a pretty common theme.

LOL

 

I've been using a macbook since I was allowed my own computer... around 2006.

It's pretty hard to switch once i'm used to it, especially after multitouch trackpad.

All windows 8 laptops have multitouch now. It's quite useful, I find myself missing some touch features on my desktop.
