yesterday's deal on OLED 65" for 3.6k at HN

 



Ooh what model?

 

this one https://www.harveynorman.co.nz/tv-and-audio/televisions/oled-televisions/panasonic-65-oled-4k-smart-tv.html

 

it was on its final hours late into the night and I didn't have time to ask the GZ peeps to aid with decision so I thought I'd keep the 3.6k in my pocket 

 

on thinking back I should have bought this and sold my Samsung phone





Involuntary autocorrect in operation on mobile device. Apologies in advance.

This and you can even make a business out of it. Charge $80 per person for for the thrill to dare touching your finger to the blade.





Do whatever you want to do man.

Waiting on Zen2 (Ryzen 3xxx series) before dropping cash on a new build, wanting to get the next gen performance since my i7 3770k has lasted so long.

Get some new headphones, Sennheiser HD6xx or some Beyerdynamic DT990 or DT770 along with a decent dac/amp, maybe a Topping DX3 pro or Schiit Jotunheim.

Dunno, depending on your hobby $6k could be a lot, or it could just be enough to get one or two things. Best you get something you’re really going to enjoy using for a while as buyers regret is not a great feeling to have.

An HTPC build to replace my aging 2500k PC and if I have any cash left over, upgrading my home theatre system.






Banana?

LEGO!

 

Start with the Bugatti Chiron, maybe the Death Star for the son, the carousel and roller coaster for the wife and daughter. That is around $2500 at current new prices.

 

Not sure what I spend the balance on.

Geez... for that money I'd buy an actual car, not just a Lego model.

I'd spend three-quarters of it on beer and women.....and the rest I'll just squander.

If I had a spare six grand I'd use it to buy a happier and safer life for needy animals out there.

For $6,000?  A painting by a talented local artist.

 

I have more than enough electronic gadgets.
