timppu: Woohoo! Even though I didn't win in yesterday's Finnish lottery (12 million euros, two lucky persons got it, 6mil each)), I did get today a megahuge summer bonus from my employer! Which means I can definitely afford to buy the ASUS G75 now, even without resorting to my credit cards. Heck, I could easily afford at least two, even after jettisoning my earlier credit dept. I was unsure if and when the bonus would come, which could have jeopardized my cunning plans.

And, at least one shop still seems to have a couple of G75s available, so I think I'll place my order there right away. I would have preferred to just go pick one up from some store though, easier to smuggle in to my home that way without my gf noticing it, but very few places seem to carry it without having to order online.

Dang, soon I would be able to run Witcher 2, Metro 2033, Crysis 1-2 etc. in (at least close to) their full glory. "Would be", because I am unsure if I will really do that other than for a show, as I am still busy playing older games on my older PCs.

But I know that if I don't buy it now, that extra money will magically dissolve into thin air anyway over a couple of months...
Metro 2033 is a hoot.

I bought it from Steam for a couple of bucks mainly as a graphical benchmark for my new computer, as I've understood it is quite demanding game for the hardware, even if it is a couple of years old already.

But if it is also a good game, all the better! :)

It is a good survival Horror game in F.P.S. format.
The thread title remind me of this

Great! I just got a SMS that my ASUS G75 gaming laptop has arrived to the shop, and I can go get it! I think I'll leave work early today... Damn, first I'm probably going to run Ultima 9 on it, full details and all.

First things first though, I need to google for the exact steps to do when preparing the OS installation, like whether I need to make some backup CD-R of it or something... I don't have that much experience with all that shit, I don't think I've had to do that before.

I got a diecast model of an Alfa Romeo 8C Competizione coupé, finished in competizione rosso metallic paint. It's a gorgeous thing, even if it's only in 1:32 scale.

Simple minds, simple pleasures, I guess.
GeneForge I - V, Torchlight, Legend of Grimrock, and Ultima 9 all for less than $25.00 now that is Good News!!!!
