    Herman Miller Embody

    I'm a year late in posting this but I own one. It's worth it for me. I've had it for 6 years now. It depends on what you're looking to get out of it. To me, this chair screams content creation, streaming, creativity, and productivity (I game on it as well). It compliments my big 4k monitor...

    I'll have to try this again over the weekend. The plan is to install Windows 10 and/or Linux from a clean slate on the 960 and see how the system responds. We'll see if it's an issue with the BIOS or the boot partition.

I ask this because the battery in my surface pro pen was on its last leg (it was 0.4v instead of the required 1.5v). I thought it was the battery. I...
