Happy Birthday! Hope you had a great partay
I am now halfway through galaxy the second time but now i stopped because i recently got orange box. Its bloody awesome, even on the lowest settings in everything [thanks to my trusty notebook]. Half-Life 2 and Portal for the win!
But now is the time for me to get a new notebook and i have 2 choices [3 actually but who cares]
HP Compaq 6910p Excellant notebook processor Core 2 duo 2.4GHZ and a class 3 graphics card ATI Mobility Radeon X2300 - 128 MB. It will be a decent upgrade from my other laptop and ill be able to use HDR in HL2-Lost Coast. The fingerprint scanner and extremily sturdy casing is a great bonus. $3,300
MacBook Same processor but with 2GHZ in the up-end model and a class 5 graphics card Intel GMA 950. Its almost a downgrade from my current [and unrepairable] laptop however it is faster and has the extra OS [10.5 leapord] so synching my ipod will FINALLY be an simple task. However due to the unbearable crappy graphics card, i wont even be able to play the original Half-Life. Even running project64 will be a problem. $2,600
