New Computer

So my old computer was getting kinda well, old. The screen was broken so I could only play in fortress because if someone was like red, then they were invisible. Taco had wiped that hard drive and installed Ubuntu on it, which is a cool os but very complicated so you have to know your stuff to be able to do anything. Anyways, I went a got a new computer, the latest and greatest laptop from HP. First thing I do when I get home after installing firefox and all the anit-virus programs was get on tron to see how it runs. I log into the first network sumo game, and I can already tell it sucks. Just like any other laptop I’ve played it’s totally a different experience than if I were playing on my home desktop computer. The fps is lower, the smoothness of the gameplay drops and high pings start to kick in, sad face. I wonder why it’s always like this on laptops, if anyone knows please leave a comment but I don’t get it at all. Looks like I’ll have to keep my home computer set up so I can still play tron every once in a while, which sucks because I only have one desk :D. Plus I’ll be going to college next year and I probably wont be able to take it.

Guess we’ll see how it goes :P. if anyone else has a laptop tell me how your gameplay is compared to a standard home computer

    I got a Samsung R610, about £700, work ideally for tron. It took a while to get used to (my config used arrow buttons, which are far too small on here, so i now use the numpad instead) but now I’m better than on my old PC.

    If thats the price range your going for, then I highly recomend it. It looks awesome too
