hey, you guyz don't know what I was stuck with before the dudes here helped me build my own pc. Hey, at least I save my $$ dough $$ and get what I need, not like you dudes, who spend a dollar for a coke can or krap like that. and I don't have a job either, so I get $$ by occasion: plus don't get krap for birthday or chrismas and stuff. I had to split the cost of my PC with my brother and we share it, so it was cheaper.

Samsung QX410 notebook <-- lol, I'm always on the go these days :(

My house mate was kicking around a Celeron 733, ALL-IN-ONE Motherboard, 128Mb SD for about 4 years. He finally upgraded this year, but once again he was tight on cash. And he will still complain every time tell him "Most likely not" or "Rather Poorly" when i have a new game.

HP zBook 14 - Intel Core i7 4600U (2.1 - 2.7 GHz), 16GB, 512GB SSD, 14" Display, Win 10 (64-bit)

I used to play Tropico, Half Life, and Red Alert 2 on my old P200, 32 MB of ram, no 3d card and a crappy 2 gig HD. Then I got my current PC, plus a few upgrades over the years. This one gotta last me at least 2 more!
