Jesus fucking Christ what the hell?

Are those pictures of food on his bulletin board? Why?
>>
>>100969777
>not keeping pictures of your favorite food around
>>
>>100969777
Why the hell not. Maybe it's a reminder, something like "This was the best X I ever tasted" or "Some day I have to learn how to make a Y like that".
Food in your bulletin board is the only destination.
>>
>>100969777
There's a class of subhumans who takes pictures of their food rather than enjoying it.
>>
>>100969907
>look at this food
>better take a photo of it

people actually do this?
>>
>>100970000
Yep, thanks Obama.

He enjoys making things hard for himself. Probably uses Vista as well.
>>
Maybe they are recipes?

Each picture of food has a piece of paper with text next to it, after all.

>Owning a computer


Are you a caveman?

>>100970096
Maybe he took pictures of his food, the wrote a poem about it while masturbating to it.
>>
>>100970104
>not owning things that actually work instead of being toys
>>
>>100969777
His billboard is actually Instagram
>>
Maybe he is poor.

I don't know why anyone would still be using a trackball in 2014 though.
>>
>>100970338
Maybe he's a hipster
>>
>not using a joystick instead of a trackball to look up more pictures of food to print out and hang up in your room

>>100969687
Probably he's using Windows 8.

Well, more like he must be using Windows 8.
>>
Let's for one minute completely disregard the fact that he's using a tablet thus inferior processing capability

The size of that screen and that viewing angle is horrendous. You could do neither work or play for more than 2 minutes with that configuration and sitting straiught like that with your neck bent down.

If you don't play videogames or use professional software that needs a lot of power there's really no reason to have a full tower desktop or even a laptop considering how powerful tablets and smartphones are.

They are powerful and can do most of what a normal computer can do, but they have such tiny screens.

>If you don't play videogames or use professional software that needs a lot of power there's really no reason to have a full tower desktop or even a laptop considering how powerful tablets and smartphones are.

That's not my problem though, it's that angle he's sitting at, the tiny screen.

Now if he had that tablet hooked up to a larger screen on his desk, sure that's cool. He can take the tablet portable or pop it into a dock/cable connect it at home and have his keyboard/screen setup at his desk.

Attempting to using a touch optimized device with a tiny screen with keyboard and mouse/rollerball complement makes you look like one of those really big guys trying to drive a clown car.

Did you really have to greentext that?
>>
>>100971134
I like to use greentext to reply to other greentexts.

>>100970000

I do this for things I cook ... because beautiful.

Ever heard of instagram?

fair enough

Best feeling in the world

It actually helps curb appetites, and why not?

These are professional artists here. They know what they are doing.

If it's one of those MS Surface Pros that runs full Windows 8, it'd actually be a decent replacement for a laptop.

I somewhat doubt it is, though. Or they even put that much thought into it.
>>
>>100970338
I use one. They're fucking amazing.
>>
>>100971874
The keyboard isn't attached directly, so probably not.
Also:
>using Windows 8
>ever
>>
>>100971998
I'm still not sure what they were thinking when they made Win8. There's so many ways they could have implemented better touch controls without throwing everything out the window.

>Follow a recipe or cook experimentally
>Dish comes out looking delicious because you have a good amount of practice
>Enjoy the reward of a hard days work by digging into the meal you so lovingly cooked

I'll have the memory, I don't need a picture. If I want it again I'll make it. Even if it comes out different I'll enjoy it because now it's a new memory.

You could build a laptop for the price of a tablet

They might be strong, but those keyboards, displays and OS' are a pain in the ass.
>>
>>100973004
You could build an even better desktop pc for the price of said laptop.
>>
>>100974239
That's what I meant actually, I got words mixed up.

Many of you seem to be missing the point; he's not some fat neckbeard who stays in his home all day and needs to hide his powerlevel. He would actually use his computer in public, therefore mobility is an important issue. Although ultrabooks are much better in that regard, maybe he does not have the money.
