At this point in time, I have three laptops. How did this happen?! I was always a desktop person, but in the last three years it seems I somehow… lost… my way. Now I’m kicking myself wondering why I kept buying more laptops. Surely any old laptop would have served my portability needs. The last two Dell and HP-Compaq systems that I paid £750 and £500 for (respectively) would have been money better spent on a desktop. But that was when I moved around a lot and another laptop made sense to me… at the time.

So here it is, my most powerful machine… Rather crap for gaming. While i’m planning to get myself a real juiced-up desktop soon, I thought it would be fun to start squeezing this baby for all it’s worth.
