I worked on a Safeway a couple years ago, and I can tell you that those air tube things still get installed into new supermarkets. They lead back to the offices up stairs.

I feel claustrophobic just looking at those pics.

Tiny kitchen, tiny combined dining/loungeroom, cheap laminate benchtops, shit beige kitchen cupboards with cheapest handles you could possibly find, ugly security screen doors (clearly put them there because junkies try to break in), cheap oyster lighting - and that's all without seeing the floor plan, bathroom(s) or bedrooms.

Slumming it.

Because that was my apartment before I left for canada that since got re leased. I moved in with my brother at Drummoyne until I find a new place.

sure you would feel claustrophobic, you never leave the house.

Any reason you would need a laptop if you are going to connect to an external monitor ?

Use current laptop for browsing the intertubes and build a new PC that would shit on any laptop

The load should never be enough from browsing the intertubes for it to overheat to begin with but if thats the case then you buy some shitty tablet / netbook and spend the rest on a pc.

Alternatively you could get a job and buy all the stuff you ever wanted.

If the laptop is worth its weight it shouldn't overheat anyway. I have the clevo horize and have been playing d3 on it while it sits on my bed (not exactly ideal venting) and it hasn't skipped a beat.
