    I bought my $6k laptop from Origin. I added the crate to prevent any damage during shipment. I have seen plenty of youtube videos of usps and fedex workers abusing expensive stuff during delivery. If I am buying a $6k laptop, might as well protect the crap of out it, right? Edit: I got that mouse pad. Its freaking huge! It is stored in my closet somewhere. Its too big to be used on my desk.

    Do not purchase a Dell Refurbished computer. I purchased a Dell Precision laptop in June and it already needs a replacement Motherboard and SSD drive. Under Australian Consumer Law I am entitled to a refund, but Dell are choosing to break the law and refuse to refund me.

    @ Linus Tech Tips the power supply provided with the Dell G5 is a "C13" connector. It has quite a wide range of use in Switzerland and Europe. I can imagine that dell is standardizing the i/o connectors to lower the number of different connectors and therefore lower their internal costs.

    It'd be dope if you set the glass to slower apertures so they encapsulate both Linus and the PCs (so you don't have to focus swap so often, since the autofocus often seems to be a bit slow). Aaaand in terms of editing, I like how the blacks are black but the overall feel of indoor shoots is a bit gloomy so I'd recommend raising the midtones and highlights. PS: Dope to see y'all film with Ursas, that's really cool.

    I actually like single-channel memory, because it makes upgrades cheaper. May not be the greatest for performance, but now I only have to buy one stick for upgrading and can keep the old one (instead of throwing it away and buying two new ones). I mean... I get the criticism, but I can also see their logic.
