@Mokey lol def time to retire that porn ridden word machine
Did you catch any post xmas deals? As in any models you are looking at?
Oh and 2k ish for a non-gaming rig is decent imo. If you have a choice between models and one has a solid state drive (SSD) plus a harddrive def get that one. General idea is you have your operating system plus key software on it - makes for lightening quick start up etc. Soooo worth it.
I'd def do a bit of googling around good models. Sites like reddit have some good info with nz contributors.
If you go windows def get 16GB+ RAM, lots might only have 8GB and windows 10 can be a hungry wee beast. Especially as stuff accumulates and the laptop slows down a bit.
Can you write (boom tish) it off as a work purchase? If so I'd go for the best model, within reason, you can.
@mariner4life I reckon we'll get some good players coming through once those 3 retire, but aside from Fed that could be a few years away... I think Nadal will go first as he's hammered his body Novak has also had injuries but I think hes got quite a bit left in the tank.
They really are just at another level. A big part of that is how they've pushed each other. Esp Fed and Nadal who have had amazing duels over the years.
Fark, image if it was just one of them playing these last 10 years...40+ titles probably! just hand the prize over brah
It did sound like she actively engaged with them in the past but couldn't negotiate a plan. She was also self aware enough to know what was coming on social media. IRD seem to be more compassionate now whereas in the past they were way more cutthroat as my lil bro and some other mates found out. Even though they said a bunch of nice things.
I got stung by the interest while studying and it was (still is) utter bullshit to have it compounding as you studied.
I'm a bit on the fence about zero interest only if you are in NZ. I'd like to see a 2 year OE type zero or minimal interest for those overseas... not sure about how hard to go on those who leave never to return, or people who intend to come back but are away for years.
Ultimately we want those folks working in NZ, esp if they studied in skill shortage jobs. But it'd be good not to be utter heartless about it all. But bottom line is you borrowed the pingas, you pay it back.
