Did you decide?
No. I saw an awesome Sony Viao with the exact specs I wanted for the price ... but the viao is a note book ergo no disk drive.

I'l do some serious shopping this weekend.

If it has everything, get it and go with an external drive.  They can be had for $40 or less and used as desired.
He plays games. Is he supposed to have the disk drive danginling off the sofa all the time? There will be a disk in the drive probbaly 80%of the time. External is a mess.

How about a thumb drive for the games?  They're pretty cheap these days.

Some people play games on discs.

Don't ask me why, I don't even know

I have a discount code for Dell, so I think I'm going to go with ...

XPS 15

A few months ago it was £1200. I'm gonna be able to pick it up for about £500.

I saved £700 today. That's a pretty good experience so far.

But you wouldn't have bought it without the coupon, so you actually lost £500.

So I just got an e-mail from Dell. They cancelled the laptop because they ran out of stock.

I'm furious. they didn't even contact to offer alternatives or anything. Just cancelled my payment.

Dell are going to get an irate phone call on Monday.

I'm sure Dell, which gets most of its money from government contracts, doesn't give two shits about how many irate phone calls you give them.
