    The best PC case I ever owned was a...

    My first high end aluminum front panel case was this Xaser III basically the same chassis, but what a case to have in 2004 (thing was a beast to haul around though, and survived a 5K mile ocean voyage with no problems). Also used to build my nephew his first computer in 2011

    Frys going out of Business

    After working at Fry's Service desk for my first job when I moved here way back in 2006, I found out from the quarterly meetings that the Cafe was the money maker of the stores, used to make really good tuna melts and club sandwiches...I'll miss those.

    Consumer Reports: Don't Buy a Microsoft Surface Laptop or Tablet

    We had pro 3's failing all the time, pro 4's aren't much better so our company is done with them especially as the warranty was only a year compared to the 3 years we got with regular equipment.
