        Depends on what you need it for. I have a chromebook myself because it syncs up with my google account and is great for schoolwork. Also has a pretty nice art studio on it that is easy to use haha. The only downside is it can't run Minecraft because Java isn't compatible yet

        It’s not just your budget to keep in mind but how you plan on using the system(s) is just as important. For instance, I have always used Microsoft, from Windows 98 to the current Windows 10 primarily for gaming and minimal business works. Apple from what I hear is considerably great for mostly business oriented workloads, though I don’t know personally. I hope you find one best suited for your needs.

      Like the Dwarves of Moria (Lord of the Rings) I dug too deep and now I have 1 week to re-do my presentation. I suppose even the Azgard from SG1 found it difficult to dumb things down

        I have been working on a presentation for the past 3 weeks to be given next week and found out today that I went into it to deeply. Basically master student level so I have to now dumb it down because it's not what they want and yet it fits the brief. Crazy uni questions not made clear

      I once thought that having 250 players logged on in-game was poor but these days I see numbers of 16 and 27 or a number around that area.

        IT's more to do with the fact Minecraft is dying, less people interested in playing MC = less people joining servers. People always rotate out, but if there's less new people replacing them, then activity slows.

        Idea: how about sort of grouping the chats and TAB player list of smp1-3, 4-6, and 7-9 together? This creates "fuller" servers, and groups more players together so there is more possibility to chat. :)

        I do however notice it myself too, the forums as well are sometimes awfully quiet. I know they were quiet a year and two years ago too, but I feel like it's noticeably quieter again, unfortunately.

        Eh, activity will decrease in almost any online community after a certain point, I think. And it doesn't need to take a decade before that happens. Especially when it's been this high. EMC was really quite a big phenomenon. So was Minecraft.

        Welcome to my world. But that’s pretty odd for a mall, perhaps you should consider price adjustments?

      Inspiration just hit me like a wet fish, what if a Diamond supporter perk enabled you to buy or craft if that's possible a supper backpack that would store 27 full shulker boxes, it could be limited to having only one in your inventory or enderchest if it was deemed a problem

        sadly, though this is an inspired idea, there are a few EULA restrictions (set by Mojang) that keep us from making this kind of thing a supporter perk.

        would be pretty dang useful though! xD

        Well in my mind that's a proper backpack were you get to stuff everything into it :D
