When the Waaaaagh comes I will be ready

+By | August 18th, 2008 – Gaming

So the plan goes as follows. Come opening day of Warhammer online, I am going to be over at Balcloth’s place. Money has been set aside for frozen pizza and I have the time off scheduled from work. Only one piece of the puzzle remained, the computer. Sure I could bring my “cube of death” over to Balc’s place, but I would have to bring the 24inch monitor, keyboards, etc etc. And the laptop I have is pretty awesome. Many of nights were spent playing World of Warcraft on it. However when I tried to run the WAR beta on my little HPzd8000… it ate it. I couldn’t even get animations for running the poor thing was bogged down so bad. Now in it’s defense the little guy was top of the line for his day. ATI radeon mobility x300 …. 256mb dedicated graphic. 2.4ghz. The list goes on, plus it was a media center laptop so I had all the fixin’s and was one of the only kids on the block who had a remote control for his computer. But yesterday, I stopped by Best Buy on a whim, and sure enough they had the laptop I had been eying. The Gateway P-7811FX. Aside from the amazing 4gb of DDR3 1066mhz ram, or the 7200rpm hard drive, the thing sports a NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS graphics with 512MB of sheer goodness. Did I mention the whole thing was $1445. Scary huh? I might also try this “Crysis” I had been hearing so much about. Anyway, I am ready for WAAAAGH. This machine spits out warhammer without a problem. So if any of you are in the market for a new laptop, consider this one.
