if you dont have an answer, then dont reply in the thread! theres other places for that (as ill explain below... sorta)
Yes it may "beat the crap outta" my pc, but you have to consider a few things....
1: you probably have a job, or if not old enough, your parents spoil you. Therefore,
2: you have money, which is something i seldomly have. but the time you spend buying and playing, i spend surfing the internet learning more, and then taking my computer apart and putting it back together (physically and digitally.)
its not the computer, but the user and how he/she uses the computer.
your computer may kick my computer's *** when it comes to games and benchmarks (etc) but that does not reflect on how well you can operate, configure, tweak, and perform matenence on a computer.
Judging on the fact that,:
1. you said this in the first place, and not in a private message, but in a post completely unnafilliated with your "answer".
2. you dont seem to know that these sort of discussions NEVER get anywhere, even if one side is making much more intellegent arguments, etc.
3. you "seem" to be new to the forum. Read around on old posts to see what kind of people run the place. you'll understand why. (especially in threads that only apply to PCs.)
I would have to make a GUESS (<<underlined 3 times) that you are somewhat new to computers.
watch what you say after this, because you'll get people like me temporarily angry.
sorry to all the others who had to read that out of curiosity.
sorry for all spelling errors, as its late and im tired and too lazy to do any proofreeding.
and most of all
thanks again for the replies. except you, swanster.
