I bought a laptop from iBuyPower and I'm very happy actually. Works perfectly and I love it.

O.K, so I'm not much of a star wars fan but I found myself becoming a fan of the games so I'd like to get into it more.I heard that star wars was as long as the lord of the rings and boring but the games proved otherwise.
Where should I start?
Is it a show with episodes or just movies?
Star wars is the greatest movie series of all time (6 movies in total). It's not boring AT ALL, it's really, really cool, interesting, and exciting. Start by watching the original trilogy: episodes IV-VI. I think it's better to watch it that way; if you start watching the prequels first (episodes I-III) they spoil the surprises.
I've been playing TF2 for 3 years, and I'm still not tired of it. It's a one-of-a-kind game. All the free updates with new maps, weapons, and game modes just keep me interested it the game. And the balanced team-based gameplay never gets old - the 9 unique classes have strengths and weaknesses and each has abilities which make them good/bad in certain situations. They also have distinct and quite hilarious personalities. Not to mention, the game is very satisfying. Something about detonating a sticky bomb and watching your enemy explode with their guts flying everywhere, is just satisfying. Headshots are so fun in this game too. I'd definitely call TF2 one of the best, if not THE best, multiplayer shooter of all time.
I guess TF2 isn't for everyone though. Some gamers just want to stick with mainstream games like COD and don't want to try something different and unique like TF2.
I agree with your post TC, purchasing the right PC rig definitely takes time and a lot of research. The average person doesn't know what all the numbers, acronyms, and specs on each piece of hardware mean, and sometimes it's hard to find good, honest, helpful information online.
The PC will always be this way though. It's the only platform that gives you a huge number of options. You can completely customize it, any way you want. If you don't want to deal with it all and you just want to get something to game on right away, knowing that every game will run on it smoothly, buy a console. That's what they're for - they're dedicated gaming machines. The PC isn't - you can do whatever the heck you want with it.
