ProTip:  Install BootCamp, and then Windows.  Problem solved. :P

 

Joking aside (half joking, at least), enjoy. :)

It always fits, it's the right color and it's just what I wanted. Wife and I buy our own presents and cut out the middleman. 

Amen.

 

Especially as I've been told that I'm a very, very difficult person to shop for. 

(in their defense, I really am... It's tech stuff or "meh", mostly.... so it's expensive to start with, and knowing what stuff is the "right thing" is even more difficult for "normies"!)

 

I was pleased with a Dell T-20 server with 1tb spinner, Xeon processor, dvd drive, and 4gb ecc. Another 4gb ecc under the tree.

 

I was good but there are always budgets :)

 

Very nice! :)

yes, it is pretty zippy so far, but I haven't loaded it up yet. I suspect the large cache really helps.

 

I don't get how intel has a recommended price of over $200 for such a processor yet you can buy the whole server for $249.

MSRP.  When it was first released.  I paid something close to that for the 1245v3, but it was pretty new. 

 

Since it's 2, almost 3 generations out of date now .... prices have dropped on it.  Like the Xeon X5660, MSRP of $1200, but you can find them on ebay for like $50-70.   

 

 

But yeah, the haswell Xeon's are very snappy. Should handle just about anything you want to throw at it.

I added a AV receiver, a couple of speakers a sub to my 65" 4K TV in my basement.  My son is getting more use out of it than me.

 

I gave my wife a echo dot and a Sonos Play 1 speaker.  I also got a Play 1.  She has her's in the bathroom and I put the other one in our master bedroom.  The first time she went to get ready for work at 5:30am on Dec 26th she started playing music in the master bedroom instead of the bathroom.  Needless to say I didn't get back to sleep that morning!

 

My son got a Sphero Sprk (programmable ball with LED's).  My daughter got a Wacom Intuos drawing tablet for the computer.
