Sometimes the steam deck processes games better than the laptop. I don’t want my game loading at 5 frames per decade when I’m already in bed and sad

if we're talking about the perfect hikki setup though, wouldn't it make more sense to put the extra odd 500 dollars into a great laptop rather than a steam deck

A super comfy bed too, something better than all these generic boxed i foam mattresses

>CRT for retro games.
Unless you can fix it yourself, I would strongly advice against this. I don't even know how old these things are now, without any new being made, but they surely are reaching the age where the "blow shit up in your face"-phase begins. I wouldn't want one of those in my living room, it's a ticking time bomb.

>2nd laptop for use as media server

You can also buy Raspberry pi, they are pretty cheap.

CRTs aren't really explosive though

why a laptop if you already have a desktop? same for the minifridge. i don't see it's use if you already have a proper fridge unless you live with your parents or something and don't want to leave your room. but even then, they can be kinda annoying at night so i'd rather not have one.

>why a mini-fridge
i dont like leaving my chair or room i sit for days, weeks on end in it.
its rlly difficult to shop for tech as a NEET cause i have different needs as opposed to normalfags, like i cant rlly go to some tech store or furniture store and say "yeah, ill be using this chair or desktop for weeks, months, years straight without turning it off or leaving the house" so which model will work best for me.

this will cause very inconvenient health issues later on. in any case, you can just look at reviews online and even order chairs online, no?

You need those special 24/7 chairs that I think cost at least thousand bucks as a new one. I found one used once for free, it was pretty comfy.

i hate /g/ and tech boards and tech forums in general, i just want information on what tech will last long, run well or at all, but they only want to flex their knowledge while providing little to no help.

i moved my desk closer to my bed, as well as the other desk that i have my crt on.
once i get my second PC ill move it next to my main PC and put my laptop off to the side.
ill likely use this 2nd tv as a monitor when i get my 2nd PC only using the CRT for older games and films once i get the converter.
i have decent headphones, now im in search of either a soundbar or some decent speakers and a comfy chair.

The beauty of old monitors is that you can stare at them for hours at night without too much eye strain. Modern (insert new acronym here) monitors have so many lumens they could burn a hole through cardboard.

There is not and never will be a tech board for people like you. Sometimes you just can't help but go barking up the wrong tree though. It's like being told to go back to Tom's Hardware on HardForum.

I cannot recommend getting a bigger portable battery pack enough. Since I stay without power regularly (voluntarily or not) it's awesome to have something with a 100 Watt USB-C port to charge whatever I need, be it my laptop, phones, lights, radios or even reviving rechargeable batteries.

You can get "palm"-sized 150Wh boxes with Li-ion cells and passive cooling for about $120 new. And yes, small "phone powerbanks" are overrated, they suck.

I can't afford this

Poorfag list

- Mid tier PC or laptop
- Comfy bed and heavy weighted blanket
- Headphones
- Recycled old PS2 controller
- Bookshelf for vidya, pirated CDs, books
- Trash can to dispose of waste and semen
- Plushies and blankets
- Hidden crawl space

i should be getting a new PC soon, my current GPU isn't up to standards it has issues running the very few new games i play.
once it arrives im going to use my current PC for films & shows, im looking into how to host a media server.
after that im gonna use my new PC strictly to play vidya.

i love hdds. i love the sound they make. it makes me feel like they're my silent living friends. i always feel warm when listening to my old hdd making that quiet crackling sound. it's like "hey, you're busy again reading those bytes for me? aw that's nice!". what upsets me is that when you launch some 10GB+ corporate monster of software hdds perform really bad. people didn't have to unlearn respect towards hdds, but they did. well great thanks they still make hdds, so i can trade some productivity for a good old friend. ssds are soulless to me. modern cyborg that comes to replace the "useless" remnants of past. i know ssds will win inevitably and hdds will fade into obscurity, but i'm still going to be the kinda guy to defend dregs against progressivists whose only purpose is to single mindedly hunt down and destroy anything that doesn't align with "their" idea of "progress", which is actually just a delusion instilled in them by malicious parties.

Personally I just don't trust SSDs. One of them crashed on me with no warning back in 2012, and I still haven't gotten over it. They're some sort of dark, demonic magic, forged in some infernal semiconductor foundry.
