  2. kentalish--I've got a couple questions:

    1) Are you interested in opening up a laptop yourself to add RAM at some point?

    2) What gaming computer are you using currently?

    3) If you could buy a gaming laptop that makes newer games like Just Cause 2 look VERY good (but not maxed all settings) for $1000, would you prefer to buy one of those? Because you could just buy a newer laptop better than the $2400 one for $1500 a year from now--paying for the absolute best is only worth the money if the money doesn't matter to you.

    4) Do you care about 3D gaming?

    5) Is an SSD a big deal to you?
  3. 1) never thought of it

    2) a computer i made 2 years ago

    3) the games dont have to be maxed settings the gaming would be for if i am traveling and not at my home computer

    4)3d gaming hurts my eyes

    5)nope
