I do game, and if you look at my desktop you will see that I am not concerned with getting state of the art components at the time they come out.
Look at it this way. I am going to make up a few numbers here, because I do not know how much Darth is paying for his Hypersonic.
My laptop is going to cost me 2200. It was going to be 2000, but I opted for the three year warranty. I am guessing Darth's laptop is going to cost around 4 grand. Right now both systems will play all games flawlessly. Now lets say in two years, I decide I want a new laptop. I sell mine on Ebay for 1,000 and buy a new one with current technology (not high end) for 2000. I now have a computer that is newer than Darth and I am ahead 1,000.
That's the problem I have with bleeding edge. Unless you pan on using the same system for 5 or 6 years, you are going to lose money on it.
