My district is considering adding iPad 2s to the budget in the future - possibly in the next couple of years. They try to stay current with technology (except OSes... we switched to Win XP pretty late though when we finally upgraded years ago. I forgot which college it was, but a student teacher in my school said that a college in NY(?) was giving an iPad to incoming freshmen!
On a separate note, if I can get $100 more, I can afford the newest iPad. If I go for it, what would be the best choice: a) iPad 2 16gb new $400 b) iPad 2 32gb used $400 or so c) iPad 3 16gb new $500
I have my music on my phone and MBA, and I usually use Netflix for watching movies on either, so I don't know if I need 32gb, with the risk of buying a used iPad from eBay.
rittchard, I wish I never read your post! I had pretty much convinced myself I don't need one up to that!
I cannot justify buying this. Many of the accessories look amazing - especially ones for guitars, etc. But I cannot buy an iPad just for a few cool guitar effects. I am an absolute gadget geek, but even when the first iPad came out, it never struck that nerve - the one that tells me I must have it!
I have a desktop PC, a late 2010 Macbook Air (11 inch), and a Droid Thunderbolt phone. I was looking into getting an iPad 2 to use for work and play; I'm a 5th grade teacher and I thought the iPad 2 would come in handy as a grade-book, a camera for photographing student work and then showing it to parents during conferences, and other uses. But those reasons alone are not worth $400 or more. I watch movies and read Kindle books on my MBA or phone, and I have both for simpler games and music (although I recently got System Shock 2 running on my MBA!).
I figure between the phone and MBA I have everything covered that an iPad2 could do. What might I be missing out on? Is it worth it? (I just sold some guitar stuff on eBay, so I have about $400 to buy the 16gig new or 32gig used from eBay (would only buy one with the 1 year plan still available). Please share your thoughts!

What an odd use of the word "list." I think your linky is bad.
Most plausible conspiracy theory, I think, is one of the JFK assassination explanations. I don't have a favorite horse in the race -- Castro, the KGB, the mob, the CIA -- but one can build a believable case for any of the above, and the official government explanation is weak.
ha ha - That means I sent by buddies the conspiracy link!
Just throwing a random topic out here, but what would you say is the most believable "conspiracy theory" out there, and do you believe in it?
I am just finishing the last couple missions of Assassin's Creed 2, and after playing through some of the glyph puzzles, for the first time I was able to see the romance (for lack of a better word) of conspiracy theories. I was never interested in them at all. I never had an opinion about 9/11 theories, for example, and I never looked at Jesse Ventura beyond someone feeding into fantasies for a show.
So I googled conspiracy theories and saw this list. Man, some of these are pretty crazy! So what's your take? Convince me that aliens live among us, or that the government is using my phone's GPS to track my every movement! I'm not trolling or F-ing around, I am genuinely curious about conspiracy theories after AC2. I've played (and loved) the Deus Ex games, but my eyes glazed over anytime something about shadow organizations came up. So I'm asking for serious responses here. If you're embarrassed, just a friend of yours thinks...
GoW 3 Limited Edition opened but contains everything (except for paper box around the real box) in pristine condition. Code unused. Octus Service Medal: A zinc-alloy replica of the cog-shaped medal awarded to Adam Fenix in recognition of his work on the Hammer of Dawn.

Fenix Family Mementos & Fabric COG Flag: Includes the “Last Will and Testament” of Adam Fenix, the initial Hammer of Dawn schematic, and other memorabilia; the flag features the proud colors that once flew over the House of Sovereigns.

If I need to, I can present my nerd card to prove this is a serious request...
I'm getting into Assassin's Creed II, finally making it past the "prologue" and really enjoying it. So I go online to search for swag, tchotchkes, supplemental reading, and background info. I come across a few cool things. So I'm looking for any of the following: -The Encyclopedia (white version preferred) -The CE of Brotherhood (PC if it exists, otherwise xbox 360) with jack-in-the-box and everything. -The Assassin's Creed Revelations Signature Edition Ultimate Bundle (PC) -The CE guides for Brotherhood & Revelations with all original bits
I would like to trade stuff for it, or buy it if price is right. I have some "junk" from other games I would be willing to trade ...possibly... I have: -Fallout NV CE bits -Fallout 3 CE bits -Batman AA and AC CE bits -Gears of War small, hardcover artbook -Gears of War 3 CE complete (code not used) -Duke Nukem Forever CE bits -Sam & Max Surfin the Highway Anniversary Edition -The Art of Oddworld Inhabitants hardcover book -Doom 3 art book -(probably have to pry it from my cold dead hands, but..) Raising the Bar Half-life book -other stuff tinkering around from games, music, movies, guitar book and gear
I apologize in advance for turning down offers to trade things from the above list.
I'm selling my collection of Penny Arcade books (1-7). The books are in excellent to perfect condition; books 6 and 7 have not been read. They are a bright and detailed collection of all the comics, along with commentary and extras.
I'll sell the whole collection for $45.00 including shipping.
Wonder how well these run on a Macbook Air (late 2010) 11 inch Ultimate. Batman AA runs decently, as does Dragon Age - both with graphics and effects lowered. But Duke Nukem via Steam could barely move...
I had the MX518 from Logitech for years and loved it. But I felt it was time to move on a few weeks ago and bought a R.A.T. 7 with Best Buy gift cards. I love it so far. Since there are so many "comfort" options, I never feel satisfied as I want to try to tweak it again. But I found a good combo of parts and positions and it's great. Being a gadget nerd, the little case the extra parts come in is cool. My wife can't get over the look of it, and at first neither could I. But now I love the quirkiness of it.
OT: I also picked up a Razor Blackwidow Ultimate the same day. I thought the "clicking" would drive me crazy, but the overall look and feel won me over. I had even considered trading in the RAT for the Deathadder just to have a matching set! (But I like the RAT 7 too much.)
This memory came with a brand new, bought 12/16/11, Alienware Aurora R2 from Microcenter. As soon as I got home, after testing the PC, I took out the RAM I am selling here to upgrade. I took these two modules and stored them safely. So the memory is not in a sealed box, but it is brand new and works perfectly.

I would buy 2gb or 4gb more RAM possibly with either computer today, so at least the Alienware would be up to 8 or 12gb. I think the graphics card is the only thing the Alienware does better, based on what I've tried to research. But is it worth it over the other specs?
Please give any last minute advice. I'm heading out soon, as the store is 45 min away and I'll be in that area today. I'd like to pick it up today if possible. As you can see, I'm limited in my tech knowledge, so your help is most appreciated!
Leaning toward the alienware one. It's closer to the price of the mac mini, and from what I was able to figure out from research, it will do very well, especially compared to the last PC I owned. The power supply is only 500-ish watts, but works just fine for the in-store configuration. I also plan on picking up additional ram at a low cost, to bring it up to either 8gb or 12gb total - as long as it does not impact the power. I figure when I upgrade later, I can also replace the power supply.
Still might just live with the mac mini. I'm schizo, I know. But part of me feels that having the xbox and gaming PC is a bit redundant. I don't plan on re-buying Skyrim for example - maybe much later when the GOTY eventually comes out with all the expansions... I don't know. I really like the idea of the mac mini, and I was originally going to get the wireless keyboard and "magic trackpad" but for just about the same price I can get a pretty good PC with much more to offer. I feel like I'm posting here as a form of therapy - just thinking out loud - but I would appreciate thoughts. Stay with mac mini and xbox, or go alienware, of course still having the xbox?
My thoughts exactly. I guess I had too much to drink this evening (since 1pm), because I'm reading my post from earlier and realizing I wasn't clear.
One of my dilemmas is: will I be sated, gaming-wise, with the 360 and therefore keep the Mac Mini, or will I feel left out from the PC world I grew up with having the Mac and xbox? I know no one can answer that but me, but if you were in my position with an xbox and macbook air - would you keep the MM and just use the xbox, or would you feel compelled to get one of the PCs I listed earlier today in the place of the MM?
I have Skyrim, Rage, Deus Ex, the new Fallouts and expansions now on xbox... but also have a whole bunch on Steam
Forgetting everything else about whether Macs are shit or miracles, my only question is this: Is your particular Mac Mini configured with a 5400 rpm hard drive?
If so, I would return it. I will never, ever own another pc (we have an old laptop) with a 5400 rpm hard drive. It is a true bottleneck for doing anything.
The Mac Mini has a 5400 drive. I have an SSD on my Macbook Air, which is super fast, but my PC was older with something probably slower than a 5400, and I never complained. I guess I was just used to it. So it's not a deal breaker for me. My concern is getting the MM and missing the chance to get a decent, up-to-date PC. As mentioned, I have the xbox for games and I like the Macs, but I miss my PC. So I don't know if it's necessary to get a good gaming PC or not. I have the macbook air, the xbox, so if I have the PC I have all my bases covered! The Mac Mini might be too redundant..?
My wife absolutely surprised me with a Mac Mini 2.5ghz model. She then said that if it wasn't what I wanted, she would not be insulted if I wanted something in it's place.
I'm thinking about keeping it as I got rid of all my PC games and use my xbox 360 now for the most recent games. So I could keep the Mac Mini and enjoy it, sticking with the 360, or use the opportunity to look into something else.
Half of me wants to keep the Mac, as it's a cool little machine, but I feel that it is expensive for what it is. And while I could bootcamp it for Win 7, the 256mb video card and other components are too weak for anything worth while. I feel so isolated from the PC world! But rather than possibly look ungrateful (who am I kidding - she knows me too well... she could see the smoke coming out my ears from my gears turning), just deal with the Mac and xbox.
On the other hand... Why not look for something in the price range that will last longer as tech improves?
The Alienware one I posted above in another post. The other two are more expensive, but I have $$$ coming in from having sold my PC games to add to the cost. (I still have my Steam games, and a couple others I saved.)
While I thank you for the previous help, can I please get opinions? Keep the Mac Mini and just use Xbox mostly, or pick from one of these? I went to Ibuypower and Cyberpower websites - while there were good deals, I kept going too expensive, so preconfigured from Newegg is better for me.
Great details, AtomicKid, thanks! I do still have my GTX 460 xlr8 video card - which I might sell but could hold onto if better than the twin 6790s. The other computer you linked is out of stock at the local store. But the details you took the time to explain are extremely helpful.
I wouldn't know the first thing about building a system, and sites like Cyberpower seem over priced. Any ideas where to go to build a system online to make a good one under $1500? I'd need advice on what components are worth it, or at least a place to start to catch up to the tech curve.

I was thinking the same thing, but I checked recent selling prices on ebay, and I aimed lower than those - most of them used items. I'll hold off and see what happens on ebay for a few more days. I have a bad habit of dropping asking prices too quickly and finding out I sold things at pretty low prices. My selling skills are the direct result of sleeping through economics classes in college. This is why my wife handles the money!

I know they are not similar, but is one a better deal for it's price compared to the other? Or are they both crappy? My possible limit is $1500.00, and I'd rather get a pre-built PC than build one on a website, unless you can recommend the best way to use the money for a PC that will last a while without the need to upgrade.
My current monitor doesn't go to 1080, so I was also thinking possibly save some $$$ and get better monitor too. Is going from 22" 1680 x 1050 to 27" 1920 x 1080 a worthwhile improvement?

As you can see, I could use some guidance! Just encase this works out...
Just found this collection in a box in my bedroom closet, and forgot I had offered to sell it!
Also would trade for Xbox 360 games. A few I'm interested in (Collector's Editions if you have them!) : Fable III, Dead Island, Dead Space 2, various shooters / action-adventure type games. Already have Rage, Skyrim, Fallout 3, Red Dead Redemption, etc. to name a few.
I had bought DE:HR on Steam and played toward the end of the first mission after getting augmentations. Then my computer died, and while the game is still on Steam waiting for me, it might be months before I can get a new PC, if I ever do. (I'm writing this from my Macbook Air.)
However, I still have my 360. I loved the first DE, played most of the second (both on the PC), and enjoyed what I played so far in the new one.
But is the game good enough to merit re-buying it for the console? Or should I just wait until I hopefully get a new PC? I have plenty to keep me occupied, so it's not an urgent need to fill the void, but it the game was fun.
