So, last week I mentioned how I was going to build a gaming PC from a school/work desktop and shove a 1050ti in it…
Yeah, I scrapped that idea and bought this thing instead.
It’s a 2 years old, has a GTX 960M (which isn’t as great as a 1050 even) and costed 50% more than it would’ve if I made that PC. However, this one has an i7, an SSD (with room for another one!), so it boots fast, and it’s small, sleek, and looks damn fine! Plus, I can make it purple.
But, most importantly, I can run Overwatch on medium at 60+fps! It’s a huge step up from when I was running it on Intel HD 4000 graphics (which, according to minimum specs, shouldn’t have been possible, which explains why my old laptop sounded like a turbine when I was playing it...).
Holy shit, I can actually see... shit (I need to expand my vocabulary).
I swear, it’s a whole new game when you can actually keep track of what’s going on!
I prefer laptops anyway. They’re smaller and portable. I was never a fan of huge desktops, they take up too much space. I don’t have the dedicated space for one anyway (as you probably could’ve seen… I’m bad at space). I know they make small form factor cases, and building a desktop myself is cheaper, but I love the look and feel of this laptop, and I was willing to spend more for convenience, so I’m happy. It also has one of those ports for an Alienware Graphics Amplifier, so expandability is possible down the road.
