Heh, that's true.  The ASUS is the laptop you wish hadn't died, and the 
HP is the laptop that just won't quite die no matter how much you wish 
it would.

ROTFL.  That's the funniest take I've seen on that!

"AAA (pronounced and sometimes written Triple-A) is an informal 
classification used for video games produced and distributed by a 
mid-sized or major publisher, typically having higher development and 
marketing budgets."  (From wikipedia)

So basically just this year's blockbuster game, whatever that is.  
Which, running on a laptop is going to be... painful, unless Brad gets 
one of those Gaming-specific monstrosities I see at Memory Express 
sometimes.  (They're nice, but NOT meant for your lap.)
