Anytime I hear the word laptop in a game I cringe. Even more so with a 'gaming laptop'. You're overpaying for portability...and still handicapping yourself in the process.

I was watching a documentary on the development of the F-117 today. One of the aerospace engineers was asked what determined the number of radar-reflective angles on the aircraft. He said the aircraft's shape was limited by the mainframe processing power they had at the time. Now, we are talking DARPA here so they had the best computers available. He went on to say that today's hand-held calculators have more processing power than they had available. It's amazing how fast computer technology advances.

Haven't heard "AGP slot" in some time. I may have a few old motherboards down in the basement with them though. That "antiquated" tech is only fifteen years old too.

Yea, they say the same thing about the moon flights... and can you imagine, all the mental calculations they did back in the day before actual computers existed. Then it was all mental work using slide rulers... then before that fingers and toes. :cap_haloween:

I just really like it... when he turn to that graphics card, fires it up and the room fills with the sound of powerful fans blowing... oh, and it saves space on your computer because it only uses one slot! Ahaha...

I do remember these being a big thing... but then I remember getting all excited when the 386 came out to replace the 286... and the original 10 and 20 megabyte hard drives... I remember... no windows, just the DOS environment... batch files... awww.... those were days are golden.

If he did an SLI setup with three of those, his neighborhood would suffer a brownout.
