Hey everyone, any of you keep up with the latest consumer technology and not-so-consumer technology? Or do you have no need or means for it?

Post any new software, hardware, gadgets, or modifications that you are currently enjoying or would like to share here.

As for me, I saw this amazing new gaming laptop on G4. It's only 11.6 inches but is more than twice as powerful than my 20 inch gaming laptop. First of all, my current laptop's internal graphics broke causing me to have to use an external monitor, and with the mini laptop being super powerful and lasting for the next couple years, plus the added portability to replace my awful no-use Android tablet, I'm getting it!

For games the tiny screen may seem cumbersome, but you can play on the go and always attach the external monitor at home.

I like my Samsung laptop. I'm typing on it right now.

Dunno. I know nothing about technology. I don't have a lot of technological gadgets. I don't even own a cell phone.

I also have a Samsung digital camera.

I've always wondered how people get about their business without cell phones...What do you use to get in touch with people when you're not at home?

An answering machine. Enjoy your time.

I use payphones if I absolutely need to. Yes, they still exist. I can also use computers when they're available.

I don't always feel the need to be in touch with everyone all the time, though.

They're still around. Mind you, I couldn't live without my mobile phone (as we call cell phones in Australia). Partly because I need my daughter's school to be able to contact me when I'm not at home, but also I'd be lost without the calender in it to remind me of appointments etc. My memory is shocking.

I used to use my cell phone to store all of my family members' birthdays. I have more than 100 cousins you know. But that phone died and the dates were lost.

I'm actually sort of considering getting a tablet computer. Can anyone recommend a good inexpensive one?

Yes, you should get the Asus Transformer Book that's coming out this year. It's going to have Windows 8. Unfortunately for me, I jumped the gun and bought the Asus Transformer Prime Tablet that only offers the Android Operating System. That OS is very limited in productivity. It can't even do proper word processing. Honestly, Android infuriates me with their incompetence.

I do recommend you to get the Asus Transformer Book Tablet (which is not out yet) with Windows 8 because it also comes with a keyboard. It's called a transformer because it literally transforms into a laptop with a touchscreen. The keyboard is removable.

Here's an article

Thanks, CW. That sounds good. I'm used to Windows anyway.
I'm just a little worried that as it'll be a new product, it'll be expensive when it first comes out.

Well, Asus is a good brand. I don't think it will be more expensive than $550 US. That's what I got the Prime for.

I want a 3DS XL. Nintendo is making a Luigi Themed XL and I want that one. Currently it is only in Japan, but I hope that it comes to the states.

Wow check out this new gaming laptop! http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-systems/razer-blade

For $3000 this thing sure packs a punch and it's the thinnest one there is out there!
