    Erm, given the level of EA's interest in this game, I think that would be one of these:

    I suspect that would come from EA itself, not our little studio.

    (Besides, how would y'all feel about XPS-branded crystal balls popping up all over?)

    Hopefully never, and I hope anyone buying one of those gets it stolen, or beat up.

    I'll give that, yes, it's 'cool', but it's cool in a really pathetic way.

    BUT, that is just my opinion, and wouldn't complain in the least if I found (and could afford) a fantasy styled/branded laptop.

  9. omg is that a portable commodore 64? lol.
  10. I say the dell dude should be a new peerless type, placed in the Forboding Lavatory and guarded by the sniveling CSR's. (no offense to any particular person, I was one once.)

    They can say stuff too, like "We thank you for your time" and "Please refer to subsection C of Section B of paragraph 435, line 256, portion 2a, in which your concerns won't certiainly not be addressed as much as is impossible."

    The peerless reward for defeating him would, of course, be a broken toaster that a grandmaster tinker can repair to retrieve laser packs and other useful items.

    Get that reference and I'll send you a shiny ball of foil.

    I still rofl looking at these pathetic "gaming" laptops. I could take any PC slap graphics on it jack the price up and call it something similar and make a killing.

    There is nothing special about these from what I have seen and if you are serious about gaming you know what a good machine consists of.

    As an example. Right now I can buy an AMD Phenom 9000 quad core processor 4 GB of Corsair XMS unbuffered ram and a nice ECS motherboard to mount it on. Then buy a Western Digital RaptorX 10k RPM hard drive and a Radeon X1950 Pro 512 MB video card and have one hell of a nice gaming machine including the case and misc little things you can build that for 800 - 900 USD so why would you spend 4 to 5k on one of those pre-built "gaming" PCs that comes pre-loaded with a bunch of garbage you don't want?

    I went all out on my machine and still only spent 2300 USD and I was not trying to save money anywhere. We are talking a PAIR of 20" Acer LCD monitors and a PAIR of 150GB RaptorX hard drives costing 800 for monitors and hard drives alone. I also went with a PAIR of 512 Radeon X1950 GT video cards in this and paid about 50 a piece for my keyboard mouse and headset. and still I only spent 2300 about half what most places charge for a gaming machine consisting of half what mine has...

    I suppose laptops are a whole different story because you can't really custom build them but I have seen much much cheaper models that could stomp the above mentioned for a fraction of the cost so I have to wonder why someone would pay that for fancy graphics on the case lol.
