If you had to choose one gift for XMas which would you choose?
Sony PlayStation 4 or a Full HD 1080p TV/movie projector?

I already have a 60" 1080p tv but a 150+ inch screen projected on my living room wall sounds intriguing. Movie nights would be awesome! But I may get the ps4 instead. Then the projector later on. Kind of promise the Xbox 360 to my son. Plus I don't trust my wife buying electronics for me. A ps4 would be easy for her to pick out..lol.

Amazon Firestick $39 2x ram, 4x memory, dual core, and faster streaming than Chromecast. But can I do the things I'm able to do with Chromecast?

Looks interesting, but I've got a smart TV with Netflix etc and I barely ever use it - will the fire stick offer much more I wonder.....

Both of them are great options for those who cut the cable. I can basically watch anything I find on the internet then stream it to my big screen(or hd projector..) either from my PC or mobile device. I really don't need Netflix, Hulu, or any paid video streaming service. Only bill I have to pay is for internet.

I'd actually build a gaming PC if I had the money to buy an HD projector or a PS4 LOL

That new Pentium Anniversary Edition is a BEAST although it's a dual core.
Plus GPU's are fairly cheap now. I have a 32" LED Sceptre TV that I use as a monitor for my laptop so a mid range DDR5 GPU would be great (about $120-$150 USD)
A cheap build to play 720p games should be about $300 - $350 USD

By the way guys how much do you think a 17.3 inch HP DV7 equipped with an i7 (quad) 2.4-3.4ghz with 2gb nVidia GT635M (DDR3), 8gb RAM and a 1tb HDD goes for these days?
I really want to sell my laptop, I just don't know if I'm under pricing or over pricing it.
I want to ask for about $700 (cause it's used a little)
