what if you want to stream HD Pr0n?


Speaking of streaming...

I'm also in the process of buying a new laptop, but will be using it to stream movies via HDMI connection to my TV. What should I be looking for to make sure I can do this?

My general rule of thumb is the more money it is, the better, so just get the most expensive thing you can...

You can fully upgrade the Dell Alienware M17x for just under $4,200. So, you're saying I should get that one?

Do you have a PS3? You can just use it as a media server and save on a computer that doesn't have an HDMI. I have an HDMI on my laptop, but I don't even use it because I use my PS3 to wireless act as a media server.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

Nope. My computer is my only gaming system and I pretty much only use it for games made over 5 years ago.

Found one for just under 20K. I'm not sure if putting a customized Brewers logo on it would increase it's value. :-?
