Had Yourself A Ball, Prisstina?

I am declaring my laptop dead. RIP Prisstina.

It sure was exciting deciding to get you. Naming you was awesome, of course. And of course, setting it up.

But I remember the internal debate I had over how powerful I wanted you, Prisstina. Do I get a fairly cheap computer and coast, or get a power rig so I can game? Ended up, I found a custom place that was cheap and could get me a powerful enough laptop that I could handle the top games of the next few years, for about $800 than an equivalent Dell would have cost.

In hindsight, of course, I should have added another $50 and gotten the TWO year warranty. Or I should have gone with a laptop chip, instead of a desktop one which fried the motherboard.

But the funniest thing is that despite getting a powerful computer, and one which could handle most modern games, with only two exceptions, every game I played on it was released before the computer. Only one of those two needed a powerful computer to play well. And while I liked it, it didn't make my life complete.

I miss my MP3s.
