Long story short, my young nephew (8 years old) who is a huge Minecraft player wants a laptop for Christmas. I was going to buy him an Xbox or PS4 but he's dead set on a laptop.
I'm okay with this because he'll be able to use it for a few other things as well.
Anyway, I saw the Toshiba C55-A...

| Food and Drink Board|| Logan Farms brisket reviews? - Mr. Tom Morrow on 11/20/13 at 2:28 pm|
I'm having to travel some distance this Thanksgiving, so instead of doing my own brisket, I'm looking to pick one up that I can just heat up and serve. Someone recommended Logan Farms and as long as I've lived in Louisiana, this is the first time I've heard of them. At $10.99/lb it isn't terribly ex...

Any companies out there that sell carrier specific phones (used or new), but don't charge the usual $799ish prices that you find at best buy or the retail stores?
I'm trying to find an iphone 5 or the new 5S for a friend that doesn't have an upgrade and is with Verizon. They don't offer early up...

| Movie/TV Board|| Finished watching Field of Dreams - I forgot how good this movie is. - Mr. Tom Morrow on 7/19/13 at 5:50 pm|
It has been a long time, and while I don't favor Kevin Costner as the best actor on the planet, he seems to have been the best person to place this part (in my opinion). It even holds up well for its age (1989). Have any of you seen it recently? ...

This came up in the Nest thread and I was just wondering if anyone has them installed and how do you like them.
