    The Good Lord Bird.

    Agreed. Fantastic mini-series. Hawke's performance had light & shade I'd never seen from him before. That scene of Brown & Onion in the jail cell: “Whatever you are, Onion, be it in full.

The voice of our spirit is gentle. Sometimes you have to fly alone to hear it" Whew!!!

  6. Looking for an iPhone+Apple Watch charging station suggestions. My wife just got a gen-6 Apple Watch, and is in charger hell on the nightstand.

Figured I'd necro-bump this thread to ask you Apple nuts, instead of starting a new one. TIA.

  10. For anyone still interested, the MSI came in yesterday. To Nate's point, I probably did overbuy. But my overall thought was to get something that will last me, as I keep my home PC around 7+ years on average. So I wanted to max-out the stock configuration (processor, RAM, SSD HD) within a reasonable budget, as access to the innards of laptops for future upgrades gets more difficult with each new model. Off-grid battery life is less of a consideration, as this will be pretty stationary in my home office & won't be taken on travels (an old Android tablet and/or my cellphone serve that p
  11. Wow! Thank you all for your thoughtful & extensive responses. They each offered valid perspectives (some I had considered, some not), and expressed in a much more lucid manner than I could have. I promise I will consider them all. Much appreciated, truly.
  12. Necro-bumping this thread since I am looking to choose between two laptops thru my local Costco. Use cases include office apps, light photo editing (no video), Internet browsing, generally not movie watching. Stationary, plugged-in use (ie. 99% not portable). Both with 15.6" displays, 32GB RAM, 1TB SSD 1.
