Why don't we actually get massdrop to offer gaming level laptops for sale? I personally have the new HP Notebook with an AMD A8-7410 processor that has 6GB of RAM and a pretty impressive architecture. I can run Supreme Commander at it's highest settings, 80% load at about 45-60FPS. On the flipside though I've found that Space Engineers whilst being optimized recently to vastly improve framerate due to being able to skip atmos calculations now with the option to disable airtightness does suffer from extremely long load and compute times on this machine. I love this machine to death and while it isn't the level of machine I would be talking about offering, it's a good one just to use for an example. No, the ones I'd be looking at massdropping would be models with maybe 8-10 or even 12 GB of RAM and most likely high-end APUs or CPU/GPU combinations with nice specs across the board in order for people to at least get their hands on these machines and try them out to write reviews...
I just got my Sennheiser PC37X delivered and I had to pay 30$ customs fees. It's probably my fault for not thinking about that beforehand, but let that be a lesson for my fellow Germans and/or Europeans. The customs fees make Massdrop completely useless for Europe. What a shame. Also the delivery took almost two weeks. With shipping included I now payed 165$ for the supposedly 120$ Headphones. Which I could have gotten from Amazon the next day for the same price and without the hassle.
