The Ultimate Gaming Computer

If you’re like me, your household is divided when it comes to computer usage. I use my computer for page layout, photo editing and light video production, which is what I do for a living. I use a MacBook Pro, and I love it like it was my third cat.

When my gaming daughter was shopping for a computer, she stopped me at “You should buy a Ma…” Apparently, my wonderful MacBook is not ideal (or in some cases, not capable) of running the games she plays. I can’t scoff at this, because kids these days are wining prizes in the neighbourhood of $10,000 at gaming tournaments, while I’m still working by the hour.

The Right Choice

Stickers on laptop = love

Stickers on laptop = love

Taylor did her homework and bought an ASUS (pronounced “ay-soos”) laptop. How do I know it was a right choice for her? One, I never hear her exaggerated sighs about lag time or delays; two, she lovingly tattooed her personality all over it with stickers.

Google Nexus 7 Unboxing and Quick First Impressions

Google dropped a bomb on the tablet world on June 27th this year during their I/O conference. Touted as the world’s first shipping Android 4.1 Jelly Bean device, the Nexus 7 is made to showcase Google’s true vision for their operating system in partnership with Asus.  Unlike other Android devices shipping from Sony, Toshiba, Acer and a host of others, the Nexus 7 comes unskinned with no extra bloatware added on top to muddle with the experience. To top it off, the 16GB version of the tablet comes in at a staggeringly low $259 price tag.

The Nexus 7 comes in a small grey box, with a clever picture of the tablet adorning the front in the shape of a 7. After fiddling with the box to slide its heavenly contents out, one lays their eyes upon the small tablet. Upon further inspection of the box, a charger, sync cable, and manual come along for the ride as well.
