We have an Apple Store in Milwaukee??? :O
/me is soo ashamed

If you can actually wait, there's tons of deals that show up Here @ Dell Outlet

The only real "Computer" store we have up here that stands out is Milwaukee PC... Prices are a bit extreme on most of their items, but they do stock quite a bit of stuff.

Well there is a BB by the Mayfair and I got a Gateway 17" 8800GTS 512. It plays BioShock pretty well...except for some glitch that crashes it on the the Load of the next level...the keyboard is pretty nice and it is heavy as hell lol. Had to spring for the Veriizon Broadband card because there is no connectivity here at Mom's.

Anyhoo for a laptop it's alright. I almost got the Sony Vaio but I just did not think it would play games as well...but the BlueRay was pretty catchy. The Gateway had HD DVD not that I really use that...but I like the quality of the display and the action o the keys.

Got a Death Adder because playing games with the touchpad is not fun. Wish I had brought my headphones...

The Apple store is in Mayfair mall. It's usually pretty packed most days and their Genuis Bar seems to always have a huge wait. Go figure.

I've never been to that BB. I remember it going up, but never actually went to check it out. You should have come down to the Southridge CC. I could have hooked you up. I wish I would have seen this thread earlier or knew that you were coming to Milwaukee.

I guess what comes with it

167.46

Do you think there is a best driver for that?

BTW I am having issues with BioShock crashing once I load Medical Pavillion. It plays welcome to Rapture great but if I try to use the Map or Hack a security bot it crashes. If I try to use a vending maching it hangs...weird. It seems like it can play BioShock...which is pretty cool.

Ive been using the 169.61, the stock drivers are complete garbage. i got the drivers on the www.laptopvideo2go.com forums. I played the bioshock demo at max settings and it ran great. Idk about the full game though.

I need a laptop that can do stuff...fast...I hate waiting for slowness

So it's gotta have a fast processor fast RAM and a fast storage system (SSD?)

What's the prognosis? Please suggest a suitable piece of equipment.

Oh and it needs to be portable...22" screen not required...lol
Will you be having it fold in spare time? lol

Whats your favorite company?
Uber is its name. Hope your pocket is uber lol.. just messing about
