    This video made me not like linus anymore, like intruding in someones home and pointing out all the free shit he gets was taken, like look at the way the asain guy was living. He clearly doesnt get paid alot. And the part where he said this rig is better than his own, what a conceded lieing douche fr. He has shown alot of videos where he upgrades his shit and gets shit from companys for free, like spending $2500 on a fucking monitor.. Jesus your a god dam douche bag linus.
