Splurged on a Wacom Intuos M in Pistachio. I have been really enjoying it.

Oculus Quest. Had a $300 gift card for GameStop and originally planned on buying a second Switch for hacking, but changed my mind after discovering the Quest can now link to the PC, and all the Half Life announcements.

LG V50 ThinQ 5G
iPad Mini 5

Needed a new phone and the V50 was on special. Comes with a nice gimmicky dual screen case. It's pretty cool.





Also picked up my first iPad in the Boxing Day sales. It's been good so far. I like the size of it, reminds me of the old Nexus 7, but better.

I bought an RX 570 for $109 and a new case for my micro ATX setup.

I want to get Retroarch 4k ready for when I upgrade my TV this year:

Nice :) It looks identical to my Note 9, which has been a great form factor for me.

The Note phones are cool as well. My brother was looking at getting a Note 10+ but ended up getting a V50 as well, mainly due to it being half the price.

I'm enjoying the V50. Good battery life, especially when compared to the Pixel 2. It runs Gamecube games well and it does the USB-C/HDMI thing like the Samsung phones.

I'm gonna keep the V50 on my radar for next year's upgrade

Dell G7 gaming laptop with i7-8750 and an GTX 1060 for $460. I’ve never owned a gaming laptop before, but I couldn’t turn down the price.

I bought this Eufy robo vac last weekend. It arrived yesterday and I've used it a couple times, it's not bad so far.

It was $339AU from Amazon at the time I bought it. I found a post online that brought it down to $289AU which I almost bought, then found another link for $239AU.

Pretty happy with it at the moment.

Looks cool. What do your pets think of it?

Grendel would go nuts barking at something like that. He goes crazy at drones and even the lawnmower.

My dogs don't stay inside, they just come inside when we let them because the younger one is nuts. The cat doesn't care, she follows it around.
