Just had a $1,900 laptop show up on my front door
« on: June 07, 2018, 02:40:47 pm »
Only I didn't buy it but sure as hell it was bought on my AMX. Luckily the company sent it signed receipt. Why do I have a feeling like someone was planning on swiping it later. I have been sitting by my bedroom window looking at the front door with my AR right next to me. God I hope I catch the bastard

Is the box it came in stuffed with paper, or explosives, and back on the front porch?

That's one heck of a laptop. It's faster than my desktop and has a good NVIDIA GeForce graphics card. My computer has crap. It won't even play my favorite screensavers at the settings I like. I should have spent $100 more and gotten a Dell instead of a Gateway. Maybe that would work. I guess I'll have to get a gaming computer next time. http://www.reallyslick.com/screensavers/

Leave the box where it can be seen from the road.....and you can film the perp in action.

Maybe it was a lawyer woman?

Just stick a box about the same size on the porch, no one will know until the perp comes to grab it and checks the label - assuming s/he's that smart anyhow.

That laptop is about as powerful as my desktop, which I built from components at the end of 2014 - 8-core FX processor, 32G memory, 512G SSD and 1TB hard drive. Cheapened out on the graphics, not into gaming that much anymore. It's amazing how good of a machine you can have if you know what you're doing.

Did you ask your wife if she ordered it?
