Yeah, it is definitely a tweakers dream. Heh. I'm still a long ways away from moving forward and getting a new computer, though there is a part of me that is thinking of just getting a desktop, and simply putting a keyboard and LCD screen on my table near my couch where I have my laptop now. Lots of options. Just trying to think ahead.

The HLSL stuff is pretty fucking amazing though.
