I never really do New Year’s resolutions, but here’s my online version of one: I will update this site more in 2008!

Yay!

My Laptop is a Piece of Shit

December 30th, 2007 3:22am No comments

Take a 2.2Ghz AMD Turion 64 processor, and an ATI Radeon XPress 200M and shove them into a fucking dumpster. They can’t even render piles of 2D shit that come out of my asshole.

I get Guitar Hero III for my PC and this piece of shit laptop cannot handle it. 800×600, crowd off… Still no good. 800×600 is bitch ass resolution anyway – and my laptop still eats **** instead of syncing the notes to the music. It’s not like I’m asking it to do 1920×1200 with all the graphics up. All I’m asking for is minimum crap, and it still spits in my face. I don’t want to strum the note like 3 seconds before it aligns with the friggin’ align thinger (nice technical English I used).

I made a bad decision when I bought this for numerous reasons. At first, I was all excited because it was an AMD, which (for a long time) was better than Intel. However, Intel started Surpassing AMD around the time I bought this laptop. When I was researching the laptop, I was like “OMG 64 bit winwinwin!!!one1.” But unless you have a 64 bit operating system (with 64 bit drivers), more than 4GB of RAM, and 64 bit programs, there is absolutely ZERO benefit of having a 64 bit processor when it does everything in 32 bit mode. Second of all, my laptop does not have a dual core processor. Of course those came out the month after I bought it. I picked a bad time to be a freshman in college and buy this Guitar Hero-less piece of shit. Thirdly, look at these benchmarks – what a piece of shit. My 2001 desktop benched higher with the RAM, and Intel kicked its ass.

All the reviews said that this laptop was eh for gaming but I’m not a big gamer. As long as it did internet/FTP/Word quickly, I was happy. Then I got addicted to Guitar Hero and now I’m pissed. Oh well. Like all other things (that don’t deal with technology), I guess I’ll continue to suck at this game. I was supposed to practice so I don’t look like an asshole when I play people, but no.
