    sure it has a flat response, and sure it has a lot of detail, and yes, it has good and clear lows. But is it enjoyable to listen to? Does it make you grin ear to ear? That’s what really matters.
    Seen somewhere on AudioKarma (I think)

    That's cool, Tony!
    Yeah, there should be a label on the bottom of the box you can shoot a photo of that'll detail the specs.

    Here's a quick edit for you there, Tony. Nice specs on this unit.
    • 1440x900 resolution << comfy real estate for a 13" display
    • Core i5 processor w/3MB L3 cache (looks like 1.9Ghz w/turbo to 2.9Ghz)
    • 8GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM
    • 256GB PCIe SSD << this disk technology goes a long way in computer speed these days. SSD sata drives were already a nice upgrade, but the PCIe stuff is even faster.
    • SD Memory Card Reader Slot
    • 802.11ac << this is the fast WiFi. I've seen close to Gigabit speeds with ac and a supported router like one of the Netgear Nighthawks
    • ~3lbs
    Man, I kinda want this thing now, myself! Have at it fellas.

    Tony,

    I am interested. Any chance you could divulge if it is pro or air? Even though I am ridding myself of these spoiled apples, my wife likes that it just works.

    Full disclosure. If it pisses me off. I will very likely get rid of it. But at least I took it off your hands, if I do get it.

    Hope all is well Tony.

    Yeah man, sorry about the crappy pic.

    Halen,
    Says MacBook air on the box. I would probably just keep this myself and give it a whirl but considering what I just spent on frickin' trees, I need to replenish the ol' wallet.

    MSG, thanks buddy for the edit on my crappy pic. :)

    No secret there, as a corporation I'm not fond of them, but I am willing to give their product a try since the wife got it as part of a contest. Would I go out and spend 1200 on a laptop....no. Unfortunately I need the cash more than I need a laptop.

    Ha. No hate. After owning the X for 7 or so months now, just discovered portrait mode for photos. Was about to sell the phone, but now I can’t stop taking pictures of everything. Very nice!

    Tony. Great deal you are offering. Was hoping it was the pro. But who knows, evening beers may influence my thoughts.

    No thanks, I have an old Dell PC... that is actually an epic custom gaming rig :mrgreen:
    16 GB of 2333Mhz RAM, Nvidia GTX 1070 graphics card, Asus motherboard (can’t remember the model number) Intel Xeon core of an older generation, although still quick (soon to be 2 Xeons), I don’t have a cooler capable of overclocking... yet. :naughty:
    None of this is new, but it is a respectable rig. Cost quite a bit though, had to pay for most of it myself. I was saving 40% of all of my money for a LONG time, probably 3 years. :#
    Everyone who comes into my room sees the Dell tower and says to themselves “weak computer.” Then they play a round of FortNite and are blown away!
