    Got a new laptop to replace my aged one, the MSI G65 THIN 9SEXR-249 Gaming Laptop, it's 15'6", just big enough for my eyes to ogle:

    So I just ordered this as I figured a) I'd have to order 8GB DDR4 RAM anyways (and I did my best to match it to hopefully the 8GB stick that will already be in the laptop) and b) RAM is probably the more important of the upgrades, I can live with a 512GB SSD for a while.

    And as for a mouse, I'll mostly be using this laptop as a console replacement of sorts so all of the games I play will be on my TV and be with a gamepad.

    I've been using one of these for quite a few years now. Holding up very well. And, I like how I can use the dashboard to set mouse speed, etc. :)

    You're actually the main reason I bought one. You always seemed to be singing praises for this particular brand. :)

    As the current times of Covid, Coupled up with good weather and i am finding it very difficult to get to my Bank due to limited opening times..

    And living in a area that is ok, But i would not be comfortable leaving too much cash in the house either. I simply do not want hard earned cash to disappear into the wrong hands....

    Having a safe in the house is quite important.

    Make sure it is well hidden.

    Going to see how well this works in my own PC. If it does well, my son will buy it from me when he gets the funds for it.
