wait you already bought it? are you kidding me? If you asked me what the worst company is in notebooks, aside from apple the first thing that would come to mind would probably be Toshiba or packard bell. I hope you didn't order yet because you probably chose a piece of shit laptop. Definitely go for asus or acer, but definitely don't go over 800 bucks if you dont even play video games.

it took me almost 2 years of wanting to buy a laptop followed by 5 months of researching laptops and hardware to finally buy one. it's so annoying when people just cluelessly walk into a store and tell the store guy they need a laptop for writing emails and visiting faecbook and after 2 minutes of discussion with the store guy decide to go with some random shitty packard bell piece of crap that has every single design flaw you could possibly imagine, just like that blowing 900 euros in 5 minutes just because they want a laptop. fucking hippies. they should all burn

Too late, I've had it for a while now.
A few people I know had one for a few years and they haven't had problems, and the (minimal) research I did didn't show anything bad about them.

I probably should have asked here first.
I didn't just go into the store and ask a guy for a laptop though.

Thisis the one I got, not at that price.

i had a 1500 dollar asus before my macbook pro (which is even more). it was good during college because i had all my games and 3d / adobe software on it. a lot of computers at school were hard to reserve and stuff and i could take my laptop (even though it was big) to any room to work. it was pretty convenient.

maaan i haven't had a desktop in so long

also toast buy a copy of sc2 for NA region so we can play kthx :D

3D in Flash? Kinda looks too good to be true! I guess I need to learn some 3D modeling... http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flash /molehill/

Yeah the max livestream yesterday was getting a little boring till they pulled that out, lol @ epix content loading error.

I wonder if adobe are going to allow other 3D filetypes or if they're going to have their own fl3d filetype or something, but then how would we create them ? new software or completely code it with some kind of new new 3D drawing API ? :P

One things for sure, until they make flash much more stable and fast (and 64 bit hopefully) It would be silly to put the 3D modelling functionality in the IDE itself.

That is absolutely crazy great news! Enabling usage of GPU in the Flash Player... *Drools* - Flash is really becoming a specialized skill in terms of programming nowadays and I'm excited to see the stuff people make with the new APIs. I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight :P

I started fooling around with 3d modeling in blender...it is a pretty steep learning curve...but I do want to try out some 3D flash stuff. Here's something I modeled:

I've had an Asus laptop for just over a year now. I've never had any hardware problems with it. True, it's a bit on the larger side at 17" but it breaks even in specs. Asus are one of the best names out there that I know of in Australia.

Blender is full of buttons and confusing at first, but once you get used to it, it will feel pretty natural to do stuff in it.

I do, although barely anything the last couple of weeks. Considering how much I played the two months after I got it it's a bit of a relief actually since I can finally get IRL stuff done again xP

I'm just in silver as well (I was a complete RTS noob before getting SC2), however I was top 3 in my division and matched against gold players every now and then before I basically stopped playing completely :P

I wanted to get the Asus G73 when I was getting my laptop, but one of the reasons I didn't was that, I haven't seen more than like 2 people with an Asus really, so I don't know how good it might be.

But the main reasons I didn't go with it is because it was huge and I don't do PC gaming, it would have been a waste for what I'd use it for.

My brother just bought the newest G73, cost like $1500, but it's fucking amazing. Better than any desktop I've had and it doesn't heat up. It is VERY big and VERY FUCKING UGLY but shit man, i7 8 cores, 8 gig ram GTFO.

I actually can't believe they're naming it a "gaming laptop". If anything it's more of a over-specced piece of shit.

You will never need the "8-cores" the i7 is boasting (when in fact it's not even 8 cores) for gaming, they user one or two cores tops. I did a quick google and a review site was on about having loads of cache, but when someone buys something premade, they expect the CPU and mobo to be up to scratch. It's nice having 8MB L3 cache or whatever it's offering but you shouldn't need it.

Good job you didn't go for it, you could run games just as well on a tri-core. Buy a cheaper laptop and just upgrade the memory if you have too.

So many things wrong with that, I won't even bother coming up with a refute. I just quoted it to let you know you're wrong and if you don't know why you wouldn't understand the reasoning anyway.

We have it at the office. Its got some neat level designs. Albeit quite brutal and frusterating.

But its one of those games you'll get enraged with and then lose sleep and wake up determined to beat that stupid fucking level.

Also hi fwe. I havent seen you in a long time

I know for a fact the i7 doesn't have 8 physical cores. It uses hyper threading, which not many games can take advantage of as they have to be able to "see" the virtual cores that hyper threading "creates".

OK, perhaps saying 2 cores tops was a bit low, but even with 2 you can run games at an average to above average rate. All i can do is link to reviews and tests which I don't even know are reliable.

But you don't need 4 cores to play games.

And if your referring to how I tend to word things as being wrong, then that's just silly.

I know exactly what you mean. It's starting to piss me off a bit because I feel like I have to beat the whole of one chapter before moving onto the next. Light world, all of the dark world and all the bandages have to be collected. It's frustrating to do but I end up feeling more frustrated knowing that it's not finished.

Only just found out it's being released for Wii-ware, PS3 (i think) and PC. God damn, I'm going to have to get it on PC :(

Wasn't aware. I just briefly skimmed through some articles and reviews.
