you are going to get 2 sides to this; one you have the gamers who prefer you to buy the top of the line latest gear that makes you take a mortgage out on your house. Two you have the techs who like the guy a bit above me will say to pick whatever meets what you need not buy stuff because it has pretty led lights and can sync flashy lights to music.
I'm the later I say get what fits your needs, don't buy something cause it has leds or can change colors like an xmas tree. Also try to keep clear of anything in alpha stage cause alpha tech is for those who don't mind fatal errors on expensive gear.
From my experience:
stay away from Toshiba, I have numerous customers coming in with pre warranty hdd failures on Toshiba's
Asus I haven't messed with a lot of them, I've unlocked a bios password on one and all you do is short 2 pins so that was cool.
Acers I've fixed a few.
It really matters on what you are using it for. However for everything I've found Dell is decent and has numerous affordable replacement parts and upgrades
Kind of scary that that happened already now, eh.
Thanks for the post for everyone to know.
I get a few pc news mags in the mail monthly, any articles of cool I come across I'll post in tech talk. ;)
It’s official: After years of warnings that we would run out of IPv4 addresses and need to move to or at least have a plan for IPv6, ARIN (the American Registry for Internet Numbers) has exhausted its IPv4 free pool.
ARIN will continue to process and approve requests for IPv4 address blocks, but approved requests will be filled via the Wait List for Unmet IPv4 Requests or through the IPv4 Transfer Market. Because ARIN has run out of IPv4 addresses, there are no longer restrictions on how often organizations can request transfers to specified recipients, according to ARIN. Any IPv4 addresses that ARIN receives from the IANA or recovers from revocations or returns will go toward meeting the requests of companies on the waiting list.

On 24 September 2015, ARIN issued the final IPv4 addresses in its free pool. ARIN will continue to process and approve requests for IPv4 address blocks. Those approved requests may be fulfilled via the Wait List for Unmet IPv4 Requests, or through the IPv4 Transfer Market.
Exhaustion of the ARIN Free Pool does trigger changes in ARIN's Specified Transfer policy (NRPM 8.3) and Inter-RIR Transfer policy (NRPM 8.4). In both cases, these changes impact organizations that have been the source entity in a specified transfer within the last twelve months:
"The source entity (-ies within the ARIN Region (8.4)) will be ineligible to receive any further IPv4 address allocations or assignments from ARIN for a period of 12 months after a transfer approval, or until the exhaustion of ARIN's IPv4 space, whichever occurs first."
Effective today, because exhaustion of the ARIN IPv4 free pool has occurred for the first time, there is no longer a restriction on how often organizations may request transfers to specified recipients.
In the future, any IPv4 address space that ARIN receives from IANA, or recovers from revocations or returns from organizations, will be used to satisfy approved requests on the Waiting List for Unmet Requests. If we are able to fully satisfy all of the requests on the waiting list, any remaining IPv4 addresses would be placed into the ARIN free pool of IPv4 addresses to satisfy future requests.
ARIN encourages customers with questions about IPv4 availability to contact email@example.com or the Registration Services Help Desk at +1.703.227.0660.
