Sorry, have to ask as a search won't accept 'pc' as an option, not enough letters. I bought a copy of Computer Shopper just for a casual read as it's been about 12 months since I looked at a pc mag. Then it crossed my mind, why don't more people use their pc/laptop as the ultimte gaming solution? I know the arguements about cost vrs practicality etc, but even so, surely a laptop fitted with a good graphics card and VGA out, say to a projector would kick everything else into touch? In one unit you have a DVD player, games machine and pc for all other purposes. Ok, I know it's a general question, I haven't gone into specifics, but it's a thought. Is it me? Do people view laptops/pc's for use as above as not their best solution? Is it always price? My favourite game on pc is Settlers. Ok I know about Civilization etc, but that game on a big screen would be great. The others out there thesedays can only be better, and surely shame XBox etc???? Oh, and I don't get out much. Being kept in the dark for me is pretty normal.
