this is by far the creepiest program ever... puts your face onto dogs n shit. still workin trying some games. pretty neat to be able to bring a bluray player with HDMI to work though. itll plug nicely into the projector in the training room biggrin.gif the sound isnt half bad either with the build in subwoofer.... (thats the size of a tweeter)

I just threw up in my mouth a little bit.

That is a nice laptop though. I have seen older similar models and they play games great (video and sound). Just need an external mouse.

There is a new "Complete Pack" on Steam for $99 which includes Left 4 Dead plus everything else in the Orange Box.

what about like an oblivion-ish game? nice and time consuming (already killed fallout 3, save the big titles for the big tv and sound hehe)

might have to go browse the pc game isle first. try some demos, im so lost with the new card names and processors n shit. console gaming really drew me over.

maybe some RTS? not sure if i can run that war game on here * forgot the name* doh!

You can get the original half life for 99 cents today on steam! Not exactly a taxing game, but awesome nonetheless

Nice looks a bit bling blink.gif but good features.

I will never buy an expensive laptop again, since my £800 laptop broke 2 months outa of warranty, nada couldn't do anything, sold it on Ebay for spares for £30.

So my advice is to keep it cool as you can, don't put it on the carpet or bed, always have it on a flat surface. And consider getting or making a laptop cooler. Yours is well more powerful than mine was, and I think mine just melted away the GPU.

I stick to PC's now, more expandability but I'm considering getting a net book, since I miss Wifi, my Uni has free wifi all over the campus but I haven't used it yet.

we have leased small dells at work that we can carry around if were on call so i didnt need something small. my goal was to get a beast to do some gaming on at work =) 899 was a cheap laptop for me. haha, i was considering some alienware rigs before i snagged this one. i couldnt find anything close to what this one has for the price,

and yes its got a little bling haha. i think thats why it was on sale. doesnt bother me though =)
