Well I finally bit the bullet and withdrew all my roll. I desperately needed a new laptop, I've been using one that's almost ten years old.

So that nice mobdraw win is going to be my new starting roll when it arrives in my Skrill account.

On the plus side the new laptop means I get to play Civ V and Skyrim. Only four or five years late to the party. Big Smile

Here we go again!

I didn't go crazy just a cheap (around £300) Toshiba job. But having come from a 10 year old Dell it seems pretty amazing. It left me with a little set aside for a few games and a control pad.

First of all congratulations to your successful cashout. I think its a very good idea to buy just a cheaper laptop (and 300 isnt too cheap), because the advantages of high end products are not worth the higher price.

that is a little more than 400 euro. So it will be a very decent one comparing to the
one you had for all these years. Probably the one thing you will notice for sure at first,
will be the difference in the noise. Back then they were very noisy ones.

Good luck with your new bankroll.

My Dell lasted 10 years, the build quality is amazing. It still runs fine it's just obsolete.

I'd go with the graphics card but it all depends on your circumstances and what you use them for I suppose.

I l think in buying a computer is to go with something that is fullfilling your needs so if the one you bought is doig that then its a very good buy.

You will start with a new BR and i dont know which site you will choose to start with but i wish you very good luck with your new machine and on the tables. Worship Worship

Yes, the lack of noise was the first thing I noticed. That and how quick the boot up was.

Oh yea the boot also. I have stopped turning it off, since it takes ages again,
to turn it back on, now that it runs windows 7. I use the sleep function all the time.
If for some reason it needs restart, i just hit the button and leave, can do all shorts
of chores while rebooting Smile

I used to play Morrowind on my old Xbox. Got a good three or four years play out of that so I'm expecting that much at the very least from Skyrim.

Good luck on your quest for a new pc/laptop and i hope you have more luck then me Smile

congrats on your draw win
you were lucky that the other winner didnt take your spot
i mean he won three times Shock .. it was like " ok three is enough , we will give the last win to zeroster "
Big Smile
i gotta say you have nice taste of games
hope you make something bigger out of the 50$ so you can refund yourself from the lap-top purchase you are making

Do you have goals or any specific target that you would shoot for, or just playing to fatten your roll again? Or any time limit, something like this? Of course best of luck and I hope you will like your new laptop as you did with the previous one. Ten years is not a joke, I like Dell too. I'm still using sometimes my Latitude D620.
