So my main trigger for getting a new laptop turned out fine. I can boot up my Hackintosh VM.
Now... how does this baby handle MAME? I'd sure like to know... Out of the 3 portable HDDs I carry around with me, the one with my 3DS games/backups (both SD and NAND backups), and MAME roms, is damaged. I won't be home for another 5 weeks
Just broke my personal record for number of consecutive days without dying!
