>>46877153
The manufacturing cost for a current iphone is about 200 bucks, they're selling it for about 700

And then it breaks if you put it in your back pocket. There is no quality that you're getting for paying this much extra, all you're doing is making an extremely rich company even richer.

PC prices are even more inflated, in some cases where you pay upwards of 1500 bucks EXTRA compared to the individual hardware price, despite it being the exact same thing in the end, with no difference in quality.

3 monitors is best, one for anime/manga, one for vidya, and one for youtube podcasts, when i get bored with one, i just turn my head add a few keystrokes and im doing something else

used to be one would have to have only one window up at a time, took so long managing 6+ window tabs, not including browsers

and im offended, i do not have adhd or add, shit doesn't exist, doctors make shit up for money and people eat it up

Hi /g/.

To make a long story short. My old gtx 570 ain't cutting it anymore.

I'm trying to decide between switching to amd with this http://m.newegg.com/Product/index?itemnumber=14-150-700

Or sticking with nvidia with this http://m.newegg.com/Product/index?itemnumber=14-127-850

They are about the same price at the moment. Help me out?

Love you /g/!

>being a public tracker Communist instead of a proud, right-wing private tracker user that understands the concept of private property and that quality can only be obtained via private means

Are you torrenting the way you're supposed to, /g/?

Have you noticed that you never want to use public trackers ever again after using private ones?

Public plebs, stay out of this thread. You wouldn't last a single day on a private tracker anyway.
