I’ll be on the lookout tomorrow for a 1TB NVMe internal SSD and a 34" 21:9 monitor in the Black Friday deals (I’ve got 2 x 24" monitors at the moment, but they’re both about 7 or 8 years old).

I’m looking at these for the 1TB drive, and will research this evening for the monitor.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sabrent-Roc..._t2_B07MBQPQ62

Quite fancy this for the monitor, but more research underway - https://www.overclockers.co.uk/gigab...mo-00b-gi.html
No deals on what I wanted, and the monitor is on 1 to 2 months delivery, so I bought the 21:9 monitor and the Sabrent NVMe 1TB.

Re: What have you just bought?

Don’t know if “bought” is the right word but the Beemer came with leather seats and one of the side panels had worn through so I had it replaced and fitted. Cost me £130 and a trip to Leicester but they did a fine job and the seats look as good as new

Cubii Jr underdesk elliptical trainer.
Has lots of mixed comments and maybe a bit cheaper in store but if I go to store I spend fuel to get there and likely buy stuff to stock up or something looks interesting. (It's called the £100 visit and you only wanted batteries.)

Re: What have you just bought?

Blue Light Card - £4.99 for two years (I am eligible because I am a Veteran).

It will get me 10% off groceries at Morrisons until January 3rd (and as we spend between £50 and £90 per week there at the moment, ker-ching!), and I've just bought my son and his partner a Ninja 3 in 1 Blender and saved £19.50 on that, so everything else I save on the card is gravy...
