The Most Powerful Laptop in the World | The 16-Core / 32-Thread Threadripper Laptop

Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present to you: The Most Powerful Laptop in the World This Threadripper 16-core / 32-thread processor-based laptop started as a quest for mobile compute power without paying too severe a premium for mobile hardware. I searched for an ITX Threadripper-compatible motherboard, but came up empty-handed, except for a few forum posts that said a small form factor Threadripper was a terrible idea.

I figured it had to be a fully self-contained system, including the compute...

Origaudio Mission Pack - 1 Minute Review

This is a sturdy backpack with an attractive gray pattern. The main attraction is the front pocket being an insulated lunch bag-style cooler. As a bonus, the top pocket is RFID blocking. It will fit up to a 15" laptop and has two generous bottle holders. This is the "ultimate commuter bag" for anyone who brings a lunch, though that party trick might be lost on frequent fliers.
