It's highly overrated however, Vindicator FTW.
I've played through with a Soldier and Vanguard, time for an Infiltrator next...
Doesn't work on PC, from what I've read. I'm required to play at Hardcore from the start. Really sucks on certain missions like the supply recovery one.

Nothing like getting stuck out of cover, getting hit by the collector general, stunned, and killed by a fucking scion after 10 minutes of careful fighting.
Scions are the ones that walk around doing the biotic shockwave thing, right? I hated those even on Normal. The Revenant is a kick-ass weapon to be sure. I switch between that and the Collector Beam heavy weapon.

My Gateway has an HD resolution LCD (I think it's at 1900x1200), although it wasn't manufactured very well. It looks perfect head on, but there's a big splotch of mura that's visible from the sides. Very common issue with this laptop. Doesn't bother me much though. DA runs perfectly fine on it.
I'd look into some of the newer Asus models simply because they're running faster. They'll also have Windows 7. Not sure if Gateway or other stores sell mine with that pre-installed. Tiger Direct has a 48-hour laptop sale going on right now, actually.
