    Best 1440p 144Hz Monitor to buy in India??

    Oh that looks nice. Still, 1440p seems to be the sweet spot for my workflow. I currently have 2 split panes on a screen and want to have 3 now. A triple 1440p or a (dual 1440 + 1 1080p) is what I'm dreaming of.

    Best 1440p 144Hz Monitor to buy in India??

    I'm also looking for one. Are there cheaper options available? My use case is non-gaming - just want a lot of screen space for programming.

    ASUS ROG GL552JX-DM087D, Core i7-4720HQ, vs HP ENVY Touch 15-k008TX-4th Gen Core i7

    Guys, can you provide links from where I can buy spare chargers for this laptop? I wanna get a couple spare chargers to keep at workstations. I'm expecting genuine Asus chargers, but is there some commonly used good 3rd party brand that provides chargers for this model as well?

    [Budget 50k-1L] Need a programming laptop with FHD display

    Just got it delivered. Got it from paytm. Looking good. Fiddling with Windows stuff and setting some basic stuff up. Later will take out time to properly set up Arch Linux, maybe as dual boot with Windows. Thanks for the suggestion guys!

    [Budget 50k-1L] Need a programming laptop with FHD display

    Much obliged! How'd I miss that! It's so tempting to wait around a bit for for some paytm cashback option to appear. Or for the ebay seller to restock. Anyway, will probably get it from paytm in the next few days. What a waste of 10k... I won't be using Windows at all :(

    [Budget 50k-1L] Need a programming laptop with FHD display

    Those garg enterprises guys just aren't responding to any queries via ebay :( - - - Updated - - - Oh lord... Even the version with Windows (which is 10k+ costlier) is not available anywhere online. Not even available offline at Nehru Place (Delhi)... the Asus showroom guys said check back...

    [Budget 50k-1L] Need a programming laptop with FHD display

    Alright, got it. Thanks a lot, guys. Any other place where I can get that Asus model? The ebay listing has ended. I've dropped them a message, but still waiting for reply. I hope they don't say that they won't re-stock it.

    [Budget 50k-1L] Need a programming laptop with FHD display

    ^ Alright, got it :) Hey, SaiyanGoku, I noticed in some of your posts, you've also been recommending Azom systems for custom builds. Would you say that the Asus ROG laptop you recommended completely fits my needs, or would I possibly gain anything better by asking these Azom guys for a a...

    [Budget 50k-1L] Need a programming laptop with FHD display

    That looks real good. And it comes without Windows, which is awesome. Only 4GB RAM though, which I'll have to extend. Would I have to remove it and get 2 8GB sticks if I want to have 16GB? That listing has also ended... I'll have to ask those guys if they plan to open a new listing. Any other...

    [Budget 50k-1L] Need a programming laptop with FHD display

    I need a new programming laptop. I have a broad budget of 50k to 1L as I'm not sure if what I need can be obtained in a lower price, though I'm willing to spend up to 1L on it if needed. The laptop will run Linux and will be used exclusively for programming and browsing. No gaming, really...

    Getting only half speed on MTNL Delhi 1MBPS plan?

    I've been calling their CC number for a week and they were absolutely no help. But today I sent a mail to helpdesk.delhi@bol.net.in describing the issue, and I just got a call from them now. According to them I've been assigned the 512kbps unlimited plan... even though the registration receipt I...

    Getting only half speed on MTNL Delhi 1MBPS plan?

    I just got an MTNL Delhi 1MBPS connection last week. I did the modem configuration stuff myself (by following some blog post... actually everything was automatic... I just set the VPI/VCI thing) since the technician had no clue how to set things up in Linux. But my speed has been consistently...

    Wait... so I need a modem in addition to my Asus RT-N13U router to run my MTNL broadband?

    Thanks. Can I do better than a TP Link TD W8816 at the same price point (~Rs. 800)?

    Wait... so I need a modem in addition to my Asus RT-N13U router to run my MTNL broadband?

    I applied for a MTNL connection and got the land line installed and when the broadband guy came he says I need a modem thing as well (But he said he wasn't sure and repeatedly kept asking me to open Internet Explorer and Control Panel on my Linux machine). I suppose this is massive noobishness...

    My experience while away from home

    I've been away from home for almost 2 years now. I've compromised of food too much. Eating from dhabas and restaurants and what not. Learning to cook is on my to-do list (which is about 20000 items long, sadly). Also, when I was at home, I've always had 2 glasses of milk in the morning everyday...

    Anyone else hates Blue Dart?

    Whoa... calm down, Why so defensive? It wasn't a demand of you. It was just idle pondering. Good lord.

    Anyone else hates Blue Dart?

    It would have been cool if you had a video of them dropping stuff from floor to floor. You could have tried using some social media magic.
