    Happy birthday Cool.

    Also, ditch the Mac. I boycotted Dell for about 8 years but the new bezel-less XPS laptops will run circles around any mac for hundreds of dollars less. I'm typing on one now. So smooth.

    I actually haven't run any games on it yet -- I have a dedicated X-51 (alienware briefcase) with a medium powered GTX660 for that. I got this badass metal and black carbon fiber broadsword for beating people on the way to the cafe, where I do memory/resource-heavy work with interactive maps and crap that my 2-year old Asus laptop couldn't handle anymore. Everything is smooth, smooth, and fast. If I'd gotten a model with dedicated card (I thought about it), I'd have it as my travel gamer. Another thing, because of the lack of a bezel, the 15" laptop is roughly the same size as current 14" models, making it actually lighter than my Asus ultrabook and fits in all the backpacks, satchels, compartments, I already own -- not to mention on all the small tables at cafes around the world.
