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 ordered an XPS 17 (XPS 1701X) no later than Thursday and then I heard about how a newer model (XPS 1702X) was just around the corner. In fact, maybe even tomorrow.
One of the bigger changes is that it will use Sandy Bridge Processors which are claimed to be 17% faster clock for clock. At least that's what WiKi said, and of course, the internet has been known to lie. Whatever the case is I obviously don't know what I'm talking about.
My purchase was made with considerable instant savings and I'm not entirely sure they will apply once the new model is released. The question is, is it worth the wait? Is it worth the extra money? Etc...
At the very least I'll go to bed knowing a little more. Google has not provided much 'insight' if you know what I mean, but then again this looks like it's a very recent development and has only been (barely) available to the public, so I'm forced to ask around on forums.
