    It was a blast showing you around Huaqiangbei, Linus! Thanks for taking time out of your insanely busy schedule. Turns out my editor already has a decent editing rig, so I'll be giving this PC away to a lucky fan in an upcoming video. If you're interested in winning this PC (and some cool and rare Strange Parts swag) definitely keep an eye out for that video.

    Hey meatballs, he's not being entitled he's joking. He even made a few jokes about western entitlement. If you take those wise cracks seriously you all must have incredibly boring lives.

    Hi Linus,
    If your aim is to inform a GLOBAL audience, try comparing prices by a percentage comparison instead. Makes more sense to us that don't talk dollars :)

    If you are going to run a communist country and allow a free market you have to understand that the citizens have to earn enough to begin with and the resources are available. China is so close to becoming a complete country and I feel like if they turn into more of a democratic socialist country like Norway they would do better.

    What's better than going to Huaqiangbei is to just use taobao and jingdong to buy parts. Typically they would be much cheaper than going to a physical store (no need to haggle).

    The Scotty guy seems very far from what “normal” would look like. His Chinese is poor and his recommendations are far from correct.
    He couldn’t even ask someone for directions to the top few floors where you would normally find the cheap unknown brand laptops.
    The first floor is always brand names.
    Next time you go to China Linus, drop me a line and I will get you everything you bought for less.
