    My Mac has recently been doing this when I open it. Couldn’t find anything online as to why or what causes it. Anyone know? Am I gonna need to drop $$$$$ on a new one soon?

    Now I got a "grey screen" for a bit and I couldnt access anything. My apple care ran out a few years ago so I can't take it in. Anyone know what the issue is? or how I can stop it?

    Anyone have any 4k TV recommendations? Budget is around $600 tops, but definitely prefer something under that.

    Whatever you choose, I definitely recommend waiting for black friday sales :p. That's when I got my $500 LG 4K TV for only $300, ordered online through Best Buy.

    I like my LG a lot, but I will say that the smart TV aspect of it isn't great. Apps would randomly force close on me and after it stopped supporting Hulu, I decided screw it and got a 4K Roku Ultra to plug into it. If you find a good deal on a non-smart TV, I'd recommend that and to get some sort of 4K player like a Chromecast, Roku or Apple TV. Smart TVs become obsolete rather quickly.

    TCL, look for the highest series within your budget. 4k, HRD, Dolby Vision, etc.

    just saw this but this is what I ended up getting haha. 55" 4k HRD with Roku and a sound system for under 450. I think the tv alone was around 280 so I'm pretty happy with the purchase, has very good reviews. Also works with my echo dot so that's cool.

    Got my parents an air fryer for Christmas. I think my mom will love it, my girlfriend's parents got one last year and I think they're great.

    I came so close to buying a new TV today just because id like something bigger than the 43" 4K TV I have in the living room. But I have the same size TV in my bedroom that has nothing wrong with it so it seems like a waste to ditch a perfectly good TV of that size that I only watch for an hour or two in bed even though it's only 1080p.

    I decided to be a more responsible adult and bought a new winter jacket for the first time in 10 years but man it feels like such a boring adult thing to do ;)

    I'll really only be using my tv for my ps4, and even then I probably only play ~10 hours at most per month, but it'll be nice to have in the future.

    unless I get a switch and BoTW, I'll probably play that shit constantly lol.
     
  22. Maybe you all know more about OLED TVs than I do - is this TV garbage or good? It seems so much cheaper than other OLEDs. Is it just because it’s a 2018 model? What should I be looking for?

    I don't know much about that model, but LG has great OLED TVs. Anything $1000+ seems legit to me but maybe others can chime in

    Anyone here using a projector for work they really like? I'm looking for something with a higher resolution that won't break the bank (<$1000). Thanks!
