The other thing I've been thinking about is getting a laptop so I could potentially do more. When I was in the market for my last computer I was of two minds.
I thought a laptop would allow me to possibly go somewhere, but any decent laptop was too expensive and I hate bad tech. Every laptop I looked at was fatally flawed in at least one area - usually bad graphics card or low cpu power or dubious heat handling.
When I decided on my desktop I was happy with it as it's a really awesome computer with all great components, two great graphics cards in sli, etc. I've been totally happy with it.
The laptop I had decided was the best in terms of design is the Asus gaming laptop. The price and specs have both become better. I'm thinking of getting one, which makes sense in two ways. If I am not going to live very long the money doesn't matter but if I am going to be around a little while it would be worth getting. Years ago I decided there were so few things I can use that I should just get whatever I want. I may be poor except I seem to be rich in a way. Also I had to sell my Sha. So therefore fuck money. There isn't enough money in the universe to make up for that.
I sort of suspect the 17" would be too big for me to handle. I'm going to have to think about this. Yeah escapism!
I love tech stuff so it's really hard that all this stuff exists now but my body is too wrecked to allow me to use it. I was distraught when I had to cancel my pre-order of the leap motion, and I'd love the occulus rift and Google glass. Boo hoo
