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 come to you fine folks of PA to help me in finding a laptop. I'm located in eastern Canada so that kind of limits my possibilities. The reason I'm asking here is because I've been way out of the loop in regard to the new dual core processors, and I have no clue what's good and what's not. Also in the way of brands, which are good and which are bad: HP, Sony, Dell, Toshiba, etc? (Oh yeah I'm looking for most likely a 15.4 inch laptop, but if there are any really good deals on the 14 inch ones, I may be able to change)
Dell.ca seems to be having a sale on, so if you could look those over and give me some thoughts? I also have a Futureshop in the area, a Wal-Mart, and that's pretty much all the big names I can think of. I could also buy on-line, but of course it has to be from a well known website, not nigerianlaptops4sale.net.
On to the specs I'm thinking around 2Ghz dual core (Once again I'm not sure how powerful dual cores are compared to the old P4/AMD's), and 2-3 gigs of ram. One thing I've found while looking at sites like dell and futureshop is that they come crammed with useless stuff and I'd love to find one without all that, just plain old Windows Vista (or XP) would be fine with me.
The price, you ask? Between $1000-$1200 would be nice. Feel free to show me some higher/lower if you think it's a good deal.
