feels like nobody gives a shit anymore, personal computers have been garbage since the mid 2000s and everything's just a half-assed money grabbing orgy of planned obsolescence and apple clone styling, pandering to consumers who don't give a shit about anything but mindlessly consuming media and shitposting on the internet

Apple turned smartphones into dumbed down toys for soccer moms and facebook teens who use their phones as time wasting devices rather than the powerful productivity tools they used to be

the future of hardware looks bleak and even more uninteresting as monopolies start to form and everyone is trying their damnedest to turn everything into locked down social media telescreen appliances

Honestly? My G5 iMac. Just a more polished presentation. I mean I like programming Windows but it's distracting how post-XP every program has a different UI and a mismash of new dialogs and old dialogs. It looks unfinished. But then most software these days feels like they did just enough to get it kindof sortof working and quit.

Yeah I've been using a 10 year old 720 Dell TN panel, and whatever basic 1080 tn is in my 6 year old thinkpad, and a few days ago I hooked up my new 1440 AH-IPS.
27" + 1440 = stupid screen real estate. So much fucking room, the colors are crazy vibrant, and the clarity is amazing. I haven't even OC'ed it yet and I love it.

I bought The Witcher 3 on PS4 last spring. I was impressed by all of the things that were included in the case.

They went so far as to include a full paper manual, booklet with a description of each character, a soundtrack disc, a thank you note, and stickers.

It really had me in awe. I ended up buying it on PC later on but still.

Went from Diamondtron CRT to Dell u2311h monitor. I was stuck believing my CRT was superior to LCDs until I got one when the CRT died (flyback transformer died). Not only did the Dell have better colors, it also had greater effective contrast and the lack of geometry issues, whine and the 1920x1080 crisp text were amazing.
