I am 30 incase you missed it from earlier.
Its been almost 3 years since i last updated anying computer releated or any other "dad" toys for that matter.
My oldest daughter is 2 and a half. Do I need to do the math for you?
If your wife is giving you the green light, go for it. In the volumes my daughters consume, diapers and baby food is expensive and they just keep getting tossed in the trash too.
I am getting XPS2 cause a Mustang Cobra is out of the question. for now.

Plus man, those lights on the xps2 are a major chick magnet! They like anything flashy that looks expensive.

All of the benchmarks show a significant difference in the 6800 in the Clevo and other laptops to 6800 Ultra in the XPS2. And those are benchmarks in games, not synthetic scores like 3D Mark and others.
