Last year I wanted a monitor to replace my 14" pink flickering CRT. They got me a 160 dollar 19" 1440*900 screen... that rotates. Now, I never wanted a rotating feature, never use it, and never wanted it, but they thought I would.
But now my parents want a new monitor to replace their CRT and my mom wants it to rotate. And a rotating monitor is really expensive. So they want a monitor that is ~= to mine. So they said I could give it to them and they'd get me a new monitor. I'm super surprised they are this nice about it, but I'm not complaining.
I'll have to pay for anything over 140 for a monitor.
Any suggestions (I live in the USA for online retailer purposes)
My mouse is (literally) a general electric mouse from when I was in the fifth grade. Oh. Six years ago lol. It's optical, looks fairly fail, it used to have a huge GE logo but my palm wore it off lol. It has the browser back and forward buttons and scroll wheel click. I mean, not a half bad mouse for $9 at big lots. But it is probably a tenth an ounce and the buttons are starting to die... I don't want to spend that much, any suggestions? (Right handed mouse, even though I'm left handed. I learned how to use a mouse with my right hand)
and the illustrious keyboard
My keyboard is 11 years 3 days old. That's right. Not a typo. 11 years, 3 days. It's actually a decentish keyboard. it makes a fairly loud clicking, but my no means is mechanical, jsut a fairly well made compaq (lol) keyboard. I like that it has the media buttons on it, but it's not that big a deal. Also the way it's set up the F keys are way far above the number keys, and my hands are really small to actually reach them. Also is sort of gunked up after 11 years of usage. Permanenty discolored lol. Any ideas for a cheapish keyboard to replace this? It's sort of failing in the rstlne keys, as well as enter key. I mean not bad, but sort of squishy. Any cheap ideas?
(KEYBOARD IS OPTIONAL, I"LL NEED TO TRY SOME OUT BEFORE I BUY, SO FAR I HAVEN"T BEEN IMPRESSED)
In other news it just occurred to me I actually haven't finished the campaign at all. So I'll be doing it on brutal at about a mission every couple days after finals.
