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!
So, my sister is getting a new laptop as a present, and it falls to me as the nearest technically competent person to pick out the damn thing.
The budget is £800, and the requirements, in descending order of importance, are:
1) Must be pretty
2) 17" screen with a decent resolution
3) As future proof as possible
£800 seems like way too much for a laptop to me, but fuck it, these unchangable edicts have been handed down from on high. What is really pissing me off though, is that the best laptop I can find for the money is a goddamn Dell.
I don't know if Dell are still generally despised, but I haven't liked the fuckers ever since I tried to replace a power supply and graphics card on one of their old desktops. But I digress. Anyone know of a good alternative to this offering from the masters of lies?
