    You were quite successful in emulating Sahib there.
    Not really. I've ripped off 20 in a row already. Nowhere near Sahib levels though...

    There should be a glut on eBay of these brand new and they are both decent devices.
    Should be. I saw a 64GB 6P for $360 recently in really nice condition that was tempting. Guess I'm still holding out for a windfall for a V20...

    I threw out some really good extra accessories today...tempered glass screen protectors for the G4, Z3, Moto Maxx, iPhone 5S...extra battery charger (this was defective though) for the G4, and a few cases for the Z3.

    Man, I've been through too many devices...

    ...still really liked the G4 and Z3 though...Maxx was good too... iPhone 5S got sold off instantly...

    I'll see what happens. I definitely want a new Chromebook, but I might pick up a 6P at some point. I've taken a liking to big phones.

    Pricey and a bit ugly to boot.

    Look wise is take the Sony XZ over it any day.

    However it appears the camera is pretty decent on the Pixel.

    I'm still at a loss what to get so far....

    I can wait though.
    I like the looks but price is another story. Basic one in Europe (Germany) costs 10 less than basic iPhone 7.

    So, the Nexus line is dead.

    The Nexus One is still my all time favorite. I was tempted to suck it up and get a 6P, but I'm guessing that Google will most likely keep the Nexus line bare bones and not port over any of the Pixel dust in terms of their software enhancements. It's a pity as I wished that we could still get a Nexus phone as a reference device, but perhaps that's no longer necessary...

    It seems like launcher so friends at XDA could soon have some files taken freom Pixel which will be able to port this stuff to Nexus.

    All I'd want at this point is a V20. I'm a very, very long way from being able to get one, so Robin will have to do. I could try to swing for a HTC 10, Honor 8 or G5, but at this point, I'm sticking with Robin.

    Looking at the Pixel phones more. On the whole I think they're over priced for what they are. Regardless of the software 'enhancements'.

    I get this is their first foray as a proper OEM but they have enough knowledge of what is out there and going with exclusive carriers (but at least you can buy them unlocked) is always problematic.

    Oh well, I expect the price of these to drop quickly. Still won't buy one though. I'm not a fan of the design.

    I haven't bought a laptop online before. I like to see mine in person before purchasing.

    We have some major stores here like Staples, PC World, John Lewis and Amazon UK.

    Also some of the Superstores sell them like Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury's.

    All those places have online shops. Just not sure which ones ship to where.

    Hey y'all, wish us luck over the next couple of days... Hurricane Mathew is heading straight for us and will most likely still be a category 4 (a "Major hurricane with 130+mph sustained winds")

    We're all hoping it takes a right hand turn and goes back out into the Atlantic.

    Thank you, I'm looking for something with up to 15,6" screen, 8GB of RAM and i5-7200u preferably, 6200u would be ok too. And I want 256 GB SSD. If anyone has any budget recommendations go for it :) I'm prepared to spend about 750 so for those in US this is 600$ price range ( before taxes in US).

    Price is fine but don't you want slightly better battery life if you are going to use it in college?

    I found this one, 800€ and 15% off with a code so 680€ which is fairly good deal for those specs, I think. Battery is rated at 8h, don't know if that is good or not.

    I find 13.3" screen tends to last a bit longer. My HP did well in the beginning but after about 18 months the battery life is so so.

    If there is one thing I dislike about people.and their phones is if you tell them ".your phone will take about this much to fix and they lose their minds" its like people can't function without their phones for a few hours

    I'm hanging around the university area of the city and there seems to be some theme night on. I've seen people dressed in 80s clothes and some as cowboys and Indians... Very amusing.

    So I have finally settled on a new WM device - Lumia 950.
    My trusty 640 will go up on the Marketplace either later today or tomorrow.
    As much as I tried to like the 950XL, it is just too big for my tastes.

    13,3" screens are more expensive

    It is an awesome device. The only reason I am selling it is that if I keep it, I will keep using it! It is an impressive device regardless of price. It is the true successor to the Lumia 520.
