Well us poor chaps (I'm older than most here grew up with a Commodore 64 & Amstrad CPC464 - then went to an amiga 500 now those were the good old days!!!) I'm in a strange situation, have two houses (NZ & Sydney) therefore two mortgages (and a third section deposit paid for in Queenstown) so asset rich cash poor!!!! - with remodelling and the wife wanting a spa or pool and me wanting a Ducati and XPS1730 the two just do not line up - unfortunately for me I lose!!!!!!
So I'll stick to the 9400 and my 3 games (getting slaughted in BF2142 is a common thing for me!!!) and just getting away with what I can on the credit card - For me I enjoy technology, this is my first computer after the Amiga 500 so it's been a while, every other laptop was purely a work - you know integrated graphics and 15 inch form factor so all I ever played was excel & word with the occasional game of power point.
So while I consider a 4K laptop expensive I also don't consider it needed right now - My 9400 will play almost every game out there with high res at good frame rates particularly as I have uped it to a 7950GTX card.
But I have to admit - the 8800 cards are a sexy beast and if I could ever manage to manipulate my way there I'd be in with a grin!!!!
