    Shout out to @PyritePirateBill for taking care of my 06 Taco's CMC! Thanks so much bro for helping me out. Yeah the rust has me worried; but glad to know from you I can get another year maybe two out of it before I can get another Taco.

    This forum is a huge help and all its members are very helpful.

    Happy holidays

    Prepare to wait or get ripped off. All the latest gen parts are nowhere to be found.

    I build a new pc earlier this year. What's your budget?

    There's that. I don't follow the industry like I used to, so I'm not sure if I got latest gen or not. The video card definitely isn't, but it was given to me. Free makes things faster. Proven fact.

    Hey all! I just ordered up some Bud Built Sliders and Skids. Have some good Army infantryman down there helping bud out and have had some really great conversations with them. I've been doing some research on here and the big take away for me is that:
    1-TRD Pro suspension (front) cannot be adjusted or shimmed (you can, but there are some issues that come with that)
    2-OEM tires don't last long (I'm told by my nephew that they're designed to only last 20k or something low to save on cost)
    3-Going 90 MPH on the hot lanes is way easy to do and the police don't seem to care!

    Still undecided on new rim and tires or just tires (Ridge Grapplers are 1st w KO2s 2nd).

    ps. Happy Friday!!!!

    My buddy Han said that if you can do 220kph then the cops don't even try to catch you.

    Ryzen 7 3800x, 32gb Corsair RAM, 500gb SSD (NvME), Gigabyte MOBO, Lian Li case, Radeon 480gt (I think) video card. I'm happy so far with it. I need to get a better monitor some time soon.

    Any one have trouble with email notifications? Mine stopped randomly the other day. Checked the settings and it's all on. Make me feel old and stupid, c'mon!

    Just curious, how much did that rig set you back? Sounds like gobbly-gook to me but I used to be into that stuff once upon a time. I do need to replace my wife's computer with a laptop, but it just needs to essentially check e-mail. She is decidedly non-techy.

    It's way overkill for just checking e-mail! I'd have to do some math, but I think I spent around $1100. If I had to buy a video card it probably would've been $1500 or so.

    You talking about notifications on iPhone or computer? I’ve been having notification issues on my iPhone recently.
    I just bought a pretty solid gaming laptop for $1300 (10th gen i7, 16gb ram (upgradeable), nvidia rtx2070 max-q,1TB nvme ssd (upgradeable),240hz 1080 15” monitor). You probably just missed most sales but I’m sure you can find some good ones for sub $1k. If I wasn’t using it for gaming or anything that required a good GPU then I’d still be rockin a 13” ultra book though. Can’t beat the weight/performance ratio of those.

    If you want the best value then I’d look for minimum intel i5 cpu, 8gb ram, and an SSD. Whatever brand has the best price with those specs at your store of choice.

    Email notifications from TW. I haven't gotten a single one for two days.

    I recently bought a new laptop searching for these specs. I don’t want some cheap crap but I also don’t need anything fancy. I ended up with a Lenovo thinkpad T590. This is like the shit we used in school lol so not sexy but supposedly rugged enough to deal with my garage nonsense.

    I have never used a Lenovo but I have heard good things. I know a few people with their x1 carbon which is super nice but I’m sure the quality translates to their entire lineup.

    I don’t think you can really go wrong with any of the big brands but that’s just me. I use Dell and HP at work and my newest personal computer is an Asus ROG which I am a fan of so far.

    I haven't either but a bunch of articles said they were the best business laptops, and some names the X1 Carbon. It looks like a really nice computer.

    I'm on an Asus right now and I've been less than impressed after 3 years of owning it. Overall it's nice and sleek but I've had the most minor issues from day 1. Like the sound card will randomly not work and I'll have to reset the laptop, little things like that. But this is just a run of the mill ~$750 laptop. I bet their gaming laptops will be much nicer though, as those are always built way better than the average PC.
