Pondering the Imponderable

LAN Partying Made Easy

HardOCP has an article on some new hardware that would make going to a LAN party a lot less painful. Club Louie has LAN parties really close to me, but part of my problem is what that article describes--lugging all of my stuff to the party. Plus Saturdays are kind of busy for me and I usually need my computer for business purposes. But a laptop with the mobile ATi or NVIDIA solutions might do the trick--assuming I could afford one sometime this lifetime.
