Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm looking to get my first real laptop for Christmas and am looking for something below or around $800 dollars. I'm looking at something to do work on, programming, and medium gaming (CS:S, tf2, half life 2, maybe modern warfare black ops). I was looking at the Alienware m11x r2 or I7 which I can get on ebay for around $800 and seems to be fairly portable (also the fact that it looks pretty neat). I am also looking at an Asus laptop. What would you guys recommend?
