As the title says, I'm looking to take the plunge and get a new gaming laptop.

I was eyeing the two below and was looking for some opinions if these would do the trick, where they rank, etc.

What do you think?  Or are there any other examples for around the same price.

Thanks in advance.

Anyone check this out tonight?  Produced by JJ Abrams and directed by Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity).

I'll be honest, I really enjoyed this first episode.  Love the concept so I'll be back for more.

I'm thinking of coming back to watch wrestling.....Should I??

09 December 2013 - 02:19 PM

Hi all,

To lay the groundwork for the feelings I've had lately, basically I've watched a couple of cool career retrospectives on Netflix for Stone Cold Steve Austin and Shawn Michaels and they were rather good.  Before that I watched a history of Wrestlmanias which was also great.  Really brought back memories of how much I enjoyed wrestling back in the day watching in the 80's and 90's.  Watching the Wrestlemania's get bigger and bigger and the establishment of HBK, Undertaker, Stone Cold, etc. in the wake of Hogan, Macho Man, Ultimate Warrior and the like.

At the end of the day, I'm a grown man and I'll make my own decisions on whether or not I'll get to watching it again but mainly I was looking for some thoughts from some of the big wrestling fans on this board on really, what the state of the WWE is.

I can't even remember the last time I watched, but Cena was already here so it was maybe in the early 2000's?  How long has he been around?  I think I quit as I really didn't jive with the character he was doing and his whole 'you can't see me' bull shit.  It just seemed ridiculous and quite frankly was a poor substitute for Stone Cold or the Rock for the guy that has to carry the mail so to speak.  There was also all of the "evil" Mcmahon's always interfering and such and it was just getting old.

I've perused a number of the threads here already and it still seems like some stupid stuff is still going on.  Is this just lately or are you enjoying it more than you're not?

What say you, wrestling fans?  What do you like, who do you like?

Thanks in advance.
