I bought a laptop

Yes against all my previous rants I bought a Dell Laptop.

It rules

I got a Inspiron 9300 w/ 17" True Life 1900 x 1200 Display.

It owns

1.8 ghz Pentium M w/ 2mb L2 Cache
100 gig HD @ 5400 rpm's (Slow but I can't tell the difference)
Go 6800 Graphics card that owns.
1 Gig of ram. Just bought 2 gigs from New Egg though.
TV tuner and Media Center so I can record live TV!!

The monitor is the coolest thing ever.

Its Dell's True Life technology. Basically the best way to explain it is that the screen rather then having a matted look to it looks like glass.

So if you put a fish tank screen saver up it actually looks like their are fish swimming around.

It rules

Far Cry, Quake 4, and BF2 look amazing even at lower resolutions!

It was a refurb and i got it for 1440.

The only problem is that Dell loads their Systems down with every software ever.

That kinda sucks but oh well.

I've been gamin on my lunch break at work!
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Awesome, I'm jealous. ;-D

I got my laptop a year and a half ago and already it's like a clunky old dinosaur.

Nice Acs. ;-D

You are a tekkie guy, so you know you can uninstall whatever software you don't need. Shouldn't be that big of a deal. ;-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
