As if there was any doubt in regard to what direction the computer industry's collective form factor was headed, research firm iSuppli issued a report today which confirms that the trend towards notebooks has finally arrived. Thanks in part to the rise of the netbook, Q3 2008 was the first in which desktop sales were globally eclipsed by those of the notebook.

I bought a Toshiba SLi1 laptop last December, a custom build Desktop in May and a ASUS G50Vt-X1 last week. I think I put about 100 hours on my desktop [below] since I got it. I always wanted an awesome desktop... at least I thought I did.

I now know I'm a laptop gamer.
