that's slick!

Nice! Specs?

I have 12 Intel i7 processors, 2 tb of storage, 64 gb memory, and an RTX 2070 graphics card.

Wow, 12th generation? 2TB SSD? 64GB RAM... I'm jealous haha. How much did this config cost?

9th gen. I have 12 processors. 10th gen is the highest gen currently. About $2300 (USD). But apparently laptops count as an education expense, so my dad's education fund (a military benefit) paid for it.

That's more than $3k in Canadian dollars... but given the configuration (especially the RAM), the price seems quite good. Wow that's nice, I heard US military benefits are really generous but didn't know they even cover this type of expenses haha. Is your father still serving in the military?

No. He retired a couple years ago. He was working as a lab technician, which he apparently enjoys, but if he stayed in, he would be due for a promotion and have to move to a new base. Instead, he got a job doing the same thing, but for the college I go to. Lower pay, but slightly easier job and no deployments. It also gives me a benefit, because children of college staff get reduced tuition.

That's impressive and completely unexpected. I thought he was a soldier :) Was he a medical lab technician? Or did he develop weapons?

1

Nope. He was a medical lab technician in the air force. Basically, he drew blood, did tests on it, and did paperwork. At the time he retired, he was the office manager for the medical lab on the air force base. Which meant good pay, but a lot of paperwork. I think that's another reason he quit, he got tired of paperwork.

Haha I can relate to that, I do a lot of paperwork at my day job. I enjoy what I do though :) That's really cool. So is he working as a staff member at your college then?

those keyboards

RGB keyboards are nice. Most pictures only ever show them in rainbow format, but depending on what you have, there's usually other options. On mine, I can choose specific colors for each key, make the whole keyboard one color, or use various effects, like lights rippling out from keys that I press.
