After my computer was stolen on Christmas Eve I put some extra thought into my next one. I opted for a cheap (read: expendable) laptop that served the basic needs of computing: social media, blogging, and e-mail. There is truth in the saying “You get what you pay for.” Recently I’ve found myself on the hunt for a new computer that serves my needs (read: online gaming). It still needs to be affordable, but it has to be awesome too – I love being able to keep my graphics turned up on games like World of Warcraft and Diablo III. The graphics are half of what make the games so great!

For me it’s the processor and graphics card. Like I said before, graphics are a huge thing for me – I like to see ground effects and when the processor and/or graphics card suck the game starts to suck too. This laptop is basically my dream come true!!
