Oh yeah, so I ordered a gaming laptop (some specs at http://lunarcity7.com/Xotic/FinalConfiguration.html ).
Yeah that happened.
Her name will probably be Boomer.
Hopefully it will arrive by Labor Day weekend and I'll be able to catch up on like 8 (!) years of PC games... I took some advantage of the Steam Summer Sale and am just waiting to get going with these.
Maybe I'll have some more to say about that soon.
