That's the reason why I can't get into Porsches. I respect how they're built and all the engineering that goes into them but I just don't want one. I think it's because my brain associates the Porsche car shape with a bar of soap, or a shoe, or a Volkswagen Beetle. But I do like how the 911 Turbo can be painted in Grabber Blue. Such an awesome color.
That's a good laptop. They have LED backlighting now? That's pretty cool. The $899 one should run almost everything also, but I'd rather pay the extra $100 for the extra cpu speed and RAM. The only gripe I'd have is the slow hard drive but that's just being picky. Pick it up if you can, and see if you can't find it cheaper from another store. Best Buy prices aren't that great.
I have a tremendous hard-on for the ZR1. I want it in blue. Other cars are more sophisticated but 600+ hp, fancy magneto-rheological dampers and carbon ceramic brakes for a car just over $100k is a steal, even if the interior is a bit Cobalt. And American V8's sound glorious. Revving one here overseas is like flipping a gigantic bird to everyone around you.

Doesn't work on PC, from what I've read. I'm required to play at Hardcore...

Sucks to hear. When you asked about mid-range computer performance I thought you meant something more powerful than what you have now The good news is that decent gaming laptops should be pretty cheap to come by. Asus makes nice ones. I'm currently using a Gateway P7801-u FX laptop I bought last year.
I kind of understand how you feel about Bioware games. Not all of their games really got me interested (notably, the first Neverwinter Nights) and they can get really same-ish. I guess that's why I like Mass Effect better than most of their others: the dialogue isn't really what Shepard will say, it's what he (or she) is thinking and then the words come out. It's like you're directing, but not completely in control. Contrast this to the silent protagonist in most Bioware...

All of South Korea is celebrating victoly over the Japanese murder rapists and the Evil Anton Ohno, White American Devil in speed skating. Now I'll start seeing these idiots on tv advertising the latest cell phones while growing fat and lazy on success, much like the soccer team. I predict no future speed skating medals for this country. Edit: I'm being facetious. I hate the Napoleon-complex super-nationalism of this place. It ruins an otherwise great country.
