    Damn that is better and slightly cheaper than the laptop I got for my girlfriend in December.

    Holy crap. My work laptop (which plays Rift fine) is a i7 with 4GB of RAM, 250G 7200RPM HD and DVD burner with 17" screen (nice screen, too), Office 2007, and win7 Ultimate and work paid about $2100 for it. That was 16 months ago, but still cool to see prices have dropped that much.
  4. Sanjo Mr. No Fucks Given

    I cant wait to get this thing.

    It wont be long before I will be playing on a laptop period.

    The main reason before was the expense of upgrading, you simply CANT with a laptop - Ram and HDD, thats it.

    For $1000...The cost of a cpu and videocard upgrade for my big desktop I can buy a whole new laptop. Yes the screen isnt 24" and the mousepad sucks BUT I can HDMI my LCD and USB my a new keyboard and mouse pretty easily. My only complaint would be I cant dual monitor BUT YOU CAN :) Just use the laptop as the secondary monitor.

    I'm really just rambling but I can't help it - I'm excited =p

    Looking to get a new tv, anyone know of good deals available in Canada? Also any recommendations on what to get (not too expensive, plasma, lcd, led)?
  10. what size, and budget do you have
  11. Cedwyn Banned

    I'm thinking around $1000-$1500 (max), so ideally a deal where a TV has been discounted :p Size not sure, big?
  12. Xenogrant[Combine] Active Member

    I'd recommend not getting a plasma, buddy bought top of the line panasonic plasma for 6grand, 2 or 3 years ago, now where the black bars go for cinema format, he now has permanent burn in, only seen on black or white, but it's still there nonetheless.

    Last time I boned up for tv's, LED was more gimmicky than LCD, so you can get a good LCD for not too much since everyone is hyping LED, Samsung 610/630/650 were the sweetspot of price vs quality (there are different pannels for them, some better than others but I'd recommend against looking into it or you'll be on a wild goose chase like me for a year), Sharp aquas havenow caught up and overtaken samsung, or neck in neck with them.

    You can score a 46inch 610 or 630 model for under or around a grand. 650 has a highly reflective screen, so if it's not going into a basement, beware.
  13. alright, it'll likely take a week or less for a good deal to come up - I'll post here when it does
  14. Does Amazon ship to Canada? Did you want a 3D tv? I think I'd wait till the 2nd or 3rd gen 3D tv's personally.

    Had a steam friend gift this to me out of the blue, maybe I should buy the dlc at that price.
  16. I know we have some crazy star wars fans, here you go!

    Star Wars Luke Skywalker Ceremonial Jacket with Medal of Yavin
    50% link []

    You'll feel like the hero of the day wearing this officially licensed ceremonial jacket, just like the one Luke Skywalker wore when he accepted the Medal of Yavin ofter blowing up the Death Star in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

    This jacket is an exact replica of the one stored in the Lucasfilm archives that was used in the film, and it even comes with a replica Medal of Yavin!

    $132 M ,$148 L, $165 XL

    **Just in case you're wondering what it might look like ON:

    5.0 out of 5 stars It felt as if Luke touched me somehow when I wore this jacket., April 21, 2011

    This review is from: Officially Licensed Star Wars Luke Skywalker Ceremonial Jacket with Medal Of Yavin (M) (Toy)

    "The first time I put on this jacket, I was able to move objects and "persuade" people with my Jedi mind powers. Then one night, I took it off because my girlfriend didn't want to make love while I wore this jacket. And the next day when I put this jacket back on, my powers were gone. The ability to move my lightsaber from here to there, and the ability to convince women that I was their only "hope", all of that GONE.

    Now I don't know who to be mad at more. Myself for listening to my girlfriend just so I could get an incredible night of passion. Or my girlfriend for having the audacity to ask me to remove my Luke Skywalker jacket. I guess that was a once in a lifetime opportunity to have Jedi mind powers. Never again, never again am I trading in mind powers just for a steady girlfriend who knows how to do things other girls don't."
