    welcome at the cruel world, making promotion for the fucking Bezos-Devil. Cheap crap out of torture fabrics of china, india and bangladesh- Use it for gaining clicks for a totally stupid question: Gaming. The world is sick, climate is heating up, the oceans are polluted and you dick make a promotion guide for one of the most evil companies worldwide. Bezos suck everyone out, dont pay taxes, pay a joke salary and give workers no hope. If you wish, that your mother, your brother, your girlfriend had to work in a logistic center of Amazon - go ahead. If you wish, that your beloved ppl never had to do this slavery - why you fucking do this? You have 8 Million followers! Show responsibility!

    Not one of your best vids... just kinda ... basic. Hey, I learned that comp language on my Atari 400! That shows my age. :-[
    let's # those lines & hmm let's see.. If 10=x then goto line ... Ahhh I forgot how to code that crap. But ohhh I remember my electronics connection card (I think it was orange with my name EMBOSSED on it - so coooool !) where they sent me some cool newsletters / mags in the mail (yup snail mail kido's) that had basic code in them. Once I made a pretty butterfly on my t.v. (!) but I lost it (2 hours of typing line by line) because my stupid cassette recorder to put it on wouldn't work! Lol ahh memories. Damn I'm old.

    Honestly I feel this is a little creepy that one company is just making everything, especially in such a blind attempt at capitalizing just for profits and integrating everyone into their system. Amazon can stay mainly in the US thanks. Also Amazon beginning to compete in space probably for Mars is also pretty creepy.
    Imagine living on Mars and everything you have is made by Amazon. No thanks. Fuck Mars then. No one company should have this much power and monopoly.

    Linus is a retard because amazon manufactures their own computer so the most accurate test are WiFi direct/Bluetooth hardware with the fire HD 8 plus. Windows is not amazon sponsored and why a professional pc virgin race, would not buy everything from AMD/Intel directly? This video is proof Linus is not a pro but a pawn .

    I’m fine with a games console, what a load of palaver just to play a game. 20 different cables, a huge amount of space required, and a waste of time if you ask me.

    I'm skeptical of soundbars, but no speaker is going to sound good, that low over the desk. Sound waves reflecting off the desk surface will destructively interfere with the direct path sound waves, cancelling-out many ranges of frequencies, resulting in a comb filter effect.

      I got the desk sized large mouse pad they have for my gaming rig and their $15 keyboard for my server/kvm switch downstairs. They both work well so far. The monitor arms I got from them are rebranded from a major brand and are nice and heavy duty.

    I like your videos, very well done. I am confused though about you hawking the Origin line in this video when you just did a series about gaming PC's that you anonymously purchased from like 5 different vendors. You must have known prior to this video posting that the origin was shit. You did you best not to call the Origin shipped unit a complete joke, yet you are now promoting them. So is Origin good or not? Or is their advertising money worth more?
