One thing you might not know about me is that I love games. I love how they look, I love how they sound, and I love playing them for hours on end. A great story, some fun characters, and a lot of either hack and slash action or puzzle solving and I am hooked. I play on my laptop, on my tablet, on my phone, and on various consoles throughout the house. I married a man that loves to play games and I have two children that love gaming as well. My son is actually going to school to become a game designer. Needless to say, a laptop that will perform well for gaming is a must in our household.
Along with movies and books, games are a great way to just relax and escape from reality for awhile. I spend countless hours streaming movies, playing games, or just reading ebooks. I have experienced too many laptops and PCs in my life that were just not up to the job, causing major lagging, poor graphics, or just unable to run the games at all. It is frustrating, to say the least. So I am excited to see a new laptop come out that looks to be perfect for gaming, as well as my other favorite activities.
