This poll is now closed.
New Trump tariff, fourth one and a big one, may hit July 2nd. It's going to be 25% against whole slew of stuff out of China. That means your phone, computer, pretty much everything that isn't already 25% higher from three previous tariffs, will become much more expensive. I know a guy that bought gaming laptop in advance of the tariff. Have you?

P.S. Most computer parts are already affected by the 25% tariffs.

I've talked myself out of upgrading many times. I have an i7 4790k. Technically I should wait until I actually need to upgrade. I may still, but hopefully the raving madmen and their power games don't ruin everything by then. If I have the self discipline I'll do a full upgrade to 4k a few years from now, 32GB RAM, 4TB SSD if it's affordable by then.

I know my CPU is fine, but if I upgrade to 4k I have multiple monitors and swap to my bedroom TV enough I'd want to upgrade multiple things at once to avoid headaches.

I needed a computer and beating the so-called tariff was just another plus but not the reason I originally built mine for

That's how the orange clown wins EVERY battle - f*** over people he claims to be helping. Or people he doesn't. The one and only way he knows how to make "deals" is by f***ing people over. Building his casinos and stuff, he always contracted with small businesses that needed that extra money... but after they completed their work, he refused to pay them for months or years sometimes, telling them he didn't have the money. When he did finally agree to pay them, he offered them a fraction of the original deal so they still did the work at a significant loss, or else they'd get nothing at all. It was 100% illegal, and he did it all the time, because he always contracted with companies he knew didn't have the resources to sue him. A lot of small businesses closed because of that a******. And now he's running the country. So of course he's going to screw us over. We're paying for his worthless wall, we're paying his tariffs...

There aren't words in English to express how much hate I have for Trump.

It sure will be nice when he's gone and we don't have to worry about dumb stuff like this.

As long as the republican party exists we'll have to worry about s*** like this.

Nice bait topic designed to get people riled up and arguing... And as expected the usual clowns show up with the pathetic insults towards the President (which you shouldn't be doing whether you like him or not), and the same old bulls***. Sad.

No, I haven't bought a PC recently.

Might do next year though. Getting on a bit now.
