I decided to make a thread where people can just post their desktops or wallpapers to show them off to the AJ community. Feel free to give out any customization information about your desktop (what mediaplayer, apps, programs you use and etc.) Here's my desktop as of now. I plan on changing it whenever I get bored of my current setup. I use Rainmeter for the apps that are seen around the wallpaper. It's a pretty nifty program that allows you to customize your desktop into your personal space, basically. I recommend it if you have a computer that can run it without heating up. Older laptops might not be able to handle Rainmeter while having other applications running. I didn't know whether to put this thread in "Community Content" or "General Discussion" so I just decided to post in the General Discussion threads. (Hopefully this won't cause too much of a problem)
So, my insatiably powerful ASUS is winding down to the end of its laptop-life. It could easily run any game (from Minecraft to Skyrim) on the highest graphical settings, and never miss a beat. I have loved the power and portability throughout my time with this. Alas, it is an older rig and I am looking for something much (much) sleeker. One of the reasons I was able to grab this baby for about $765 was because of the sum of its parts. Its innards were impeccable, but its features were few. It had a slow disk drive, terrible webcam, speakers that would make your ears bleed and the most unreliable set of USB ports you have ever seen. This was a trade-off I was willing to make. Now, to my question. Is it even REMOTELY possible to keep a gaming PC under $1000, and NOT compromise on these things? I need a (portable) laptop that can best (or at least match) these specs: 8gb Ram 750gb Hard Drive (less important because of my external hard drives) 1 gb Nvidia (must be Nvidia) i7 processor I would prefer not to invest in another ASUS. I am willing to pay as much as $1,200, but would prefer the price tag not breach one thousand. Thank you for your time, in advance. I really do appreciate this.
