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 on the market for a transportable desktop replacement. I've researched it down to two options, the Alienware M18x and the Origin EON17. The biggest differences between the two, would be the 18" screen (as opposed to the 17" on the Origin) for an extra $1k premium.
I don't have any experience with Alienware (pre- or post Dell), but I've heard they can be hit or miss. Origin PC sounds like it has better customer service, though.
I'm open to other suggestions for a good gaming laptop, but it needs to have optical or S/PDIF audio output.
