The KILLAWATT is awesome. I use it to shut up all those fools who flip their shit when I tell them I can run a Titan system on 400watts

If anyone is wondering about the backpack. Get it.

I spent 6 months looking and finally after a few hours of conversation with one of the Everki representatives, I jumped in. Hands down one of the best backpacks ever. And it fits the ASUS ROG series of laptops, 2 of them to be exact. Beautiful interior and lots of pockets and zippers and you get the idea, just awesome. So worth it. And the warranty is beyond incredible if anything goes wrong. 2 years and not a single issue for me.

I also own 2 ASUS ROG laptops 2012 and 2013 series and while they are big as heck and heavy as hell I wouldn't try anything else. You cannot beat that ventilation system. It never gets hot. And for the price to power ratio I think they found the perfect balance. You can find them from 1k to 2.5k each. Customer service if needed isn't bad and I have in 3 years yet to have a problem with the one running 24/7. It never turns gets turned off. My only suggestion, budget to install an SSD or Hybrid drive as the stock HDD are horribly slow. You can fit 2 drives in each chassis which is not that big of a deal today but it was a few years ago.

Otherwise great to see my two favorite products and brands in an article on MPC.

Everki makes good damned backpacks. I own a different, more expensive model, and it's the best backpack I've ever owned.

And I just checked their website since this article and I want to throw money at the screen. THE CONCEPT is a beast and what all backpacks should be modeled after. It is a work of art. I think it is time to retire my nearly perfect Beacon for the Concept. Because after seeing that there is no other backpack ever. WOW

I reviewed the backpack in the magazine and it is indeed awesome. I ended up giving it a 9 Kick Ass! :)

Damn you! Now I have to get it. I don't need it but everything about it says I do. Glad they still live up to the expected level of quality in their new products.

Thanks.

No Chromebook?! I use mine at school every day! It lets me take notes and browse the web, edit collaborative documents (most of my classmates have decided that Docs is where the work is done, then the final formatting is handled by Office before turn-in), and control my desktop at home fluidly over the school's fast network when I need more power.

Best part: It was $200!
