Well ain't that just shit
|Not even Dell (Alienware) is this greedy.|
All is fine when you hit that point, till you see the following:
8GB of 1333 MHz DDR3 memory
320GB 7200rpm Harddrive
NO CD/DVD/BLU-RAY DRIVE
For a $2700 laptop, I'd at least expect it to have some triple-channel DDR3-1600 kits and a SSD. And for fuck sake a DvD drive. Sure Steam is nice, but I'm one the last few people in the world who still likes to own physical boxes and CDs/DvDs
Heck, a Dell XPS17 has about the same raw power, a 3D screen, a bigger harddisk and a fucking blu-ray writer. for 1000$ cheaper.
|And I absolutely despise Dell|
Why you ask? Well apart from the fact that I could buy a Logitech G13 for a small LCD screen and 25 macro keys for the price of $60 USD, the 1000$ USD worth LCD panel is placed on the RIGHT SIDE of the keyboard. If you read this far, and still don't know where I'm getting at, this might be a wonderful purchase for you.
The main movement keys on the keyboard are the WASD keys. You wouldn't want to get your hands off of these keys when you're playing a FPS/MMO/RPG. Now your other hand is on your mouse, which is the exact same thing, you wouldn't wanna move your hand from your mouse, to your keyboard, to press a button which could have been macro-ed near your movement keys. Especially during intense fights. Don't get me wrong, for RTS games this could work. But even then, remembering the keybindings would still be better.
Now we get to the LCD Panel, WHAT RETARD WOULD WANT TO LOOK DOWN THEIR KEYBOARD TO SEE A MINI-MAP?!? It's on your fucking screen, goddammit. The time it takes you to look down your keyboard to see where your enemies are at, you've been fucking shot in the head.
So $2700 dollars for that? Kindly get the fuck off. Might as well try to please Apple and put OS X on it and see if you can get some faggots to buy your piece of shit laptop which is supposed to save PC gaming.
If I'd build a PC with about the same specs as the laptop, it'd probably cost me about $800 and $300 for the monitor. I could add an Ipad 2/BB Playbook or a Samsung 10.1 tab to it for some portable goodness, a 3DS and preorder a Vita for portable gaming, a PS3 AND a 360 with about 5 Full-price games for each platform.
Now tell me what choice you'd make; a 2700 USD laptop with a 2" inch LCD panel on the keyboard or the list above for about the same price.
Razer. I like the DeathAdder mouse but kindly get your heads out of your asses and scrap this concept while you still can. It's retarded. Bring out a peripheral with the LCD panel and the macro keys for 100 bucks instead. That'll make everyone more happy. 'Cause this is just shit.
