I know, but I would rather have a video game console than a laptop being the gamer that I am, especially the powerhouse known as the almighty Playstation 3.

funny thing is in terms of actual computing power and versatility, even a low end laptop trumps even a PS3. Consoles have very weak processors since they are not need for much other than running running the code to play the game and rendering graphics. A computer on the other hand needs a much faster processor since it not only runs the OS on the machine, it also has an adaptable code for the instillation of new programs. Accept incoming data from the internet and then send out corresponding information. It then needs to not only display images but also render 3D graphics in some cases. And this isn't even including the user data input that a computer must interpret that can sometimes have nothing to do with the base code of the machine or the program the user is using.
So Gman, in your statement of the PS3 being a better machine, I have just debunked you argument and taken the ground from underneath you.
If a "PowerHouse" is what you want, then it is a computer that you want, not a console.
thank you for your time...
