The nerd is… retiring?

Couple of hours ago my kiddo asked me via MSN for advice on a new “gaming computer”.

Not too long ago I’d have dived headfirst into hardware specs, price lists, and comparison results, to make sure he’d get the most bang for his hard-saved pocket money, but what did I do instead?

I assembled one box with the “online configurator” of a hardware retailer, then checked the media markt website and foud that he’d get a very similar box, with more ram even, for about 15% less.

So I told him to keep an eye on that website, and when he’d found something he’d like, poke me to eyeball it for flaws.

What the heck happened to “hand-selected, finetuned components”???
