    I'm in the market of replacing my laptop, as it's six-seven years old and starting to show its age. i got it when i was in college, so it made sense for portability. but i have a job that has its own laptop, and an iPhone Xs with a lot of my media on it already. so i don't think a laptop may be necessary for me just for the portability aspect. i also do my primary gaming on console, so i don't need to spend $1000 for a high end PC either. but still a decent one as i do watch a lot of media on it, run multiple apps on it, and may play some light games like Sims for example. If i got a desktop, i would probably just use my current laptop as a portable media device until it fails, or maybe sell it before hand, and use desktop primarily. then if my laptop does fail or i sell it, maybe get a tablet if i really need one. i feel like i'm answering my own question here of what i should shop for, but i wanted to get your input as well. if i get a desktop, is it cheaper to get one with 2TB internal, or just look for 1TB and expand when needed? i would like to spend less then $750 if i can get a decent one with a dedicated graphics card.

  • Should the Cubs trade Schwarber for pitching?

    If he can't hit and drive in runs, or hit off lefties, it doesn't do much if our pitching will just walk and give those runs back to the other team. Schwarber's a good person, but i think after this season, depending how it goes for the Cubs, will be Schwarber's last with the team.

Plus, he's 65, and may be looking to retire soon anyway, and drive cross country in his RV. After winning it all in 2016, the Cubs lost in the following NLCS, and never past the Wild Card game last year. For whatever reason, nothing's really changed. it's still early, so i'm not even close to giving up, but Joe will certainly be on the hot seat if the team doesn't start playing like we know they can. the mets started 11-1 last year, then finished fourth. it's a long season. Girardi is probably the easy favorite. but who else is out there, unless they promote from within? Maybe Ryne Sandberg?

    I'm in Illinois, and there's this women that brings in a child in a wheelchair that is handicapped, and the women does her exercises with headphones on. Is that legal and responsible for her to do so? I rarely see her check on the child and mostly does her exercises. Can a caretaker do that? Just seems like its irresponsible.

Joe Giradi? other?
