WOW. And Ouch!

Boss: "I just want you to look at what you did to yourself... to me... to the company..."

You: "So I guess I have to look... every day?"

Boss: "Every ding dang day. I'd ship this computer back and forth to your home over the weekend if our company had any money left in the budget after your pelt-the-motherboard-with-steel act."

"Got it."

"Do you?"

"Oh, I do. I do got it."

There are a few items available to everyone at this point, and those can be accessed via the new shiny button.

There are also a few additional items for Kickstarter backers available, which will become available to all once we finally get the Content Market launched.

Hope this helps!

Oh, the pain. Is the kid still alive? I don't think there's a jury in the world that would convict you.

And metal screws...what a screw job that was. LOL Sorry, I couldn't resist.

I don't know about you guys, but I ended up with a sweeter laptop (not because it was Coke). After I picked it out, only two choices for a 17" screen, I was told it was a touchscreen. Sweeet! Does anyone use a touchscreen when running a game with RW?

Btw, the reason you don't want Dell or Asus is that they are notorious for proprietary parts and they are super paranoid about being reverse engineering. That means they are reluctant to send replacement parts and replacement parts aren't available from third party companies. If your computer is under warranty you wait four weeks before the computer is declared unfixable and it's replaced.

Yes. It is very helpful when revealing areas of a map that can't be fit easily in a square. Instead of using the reveal painter with a mouse, I just use my finder to smudge reveal. It makes life SOOOOO much easier during a game.

The new polygon reveal tool will be used instead of touch for constructed areas, but there are still times where touch reveal will be more convenient. Natural caves or areas with rounded edges.

Maybe, but I really like my XPS. I avoided Dell for over 20 years after poor experiences with Dell in college, but after Lenovo bought the Thinkpad line, I was very unhappy with my most recent Thinkpad and was looking for a new computer. A sales engineer recommended the XPS, after reading up on it, I gave it a shot and have been happy overall.

My only complaint, is the keyboard. I really miss the old IBM Thinkpad keyboards. Also, I don't like not having an easily removable battery. I've never had a laptop batter last me two years and my XPS's battery is no exception. Replacing the XPS battery requires opening up the laptop. Which not only is annoying when your battery is no longer any good, but you can't pack an extra battery and swap it out.

I have an XPS through my job. It's an excellent laptop. Since essentially all laptops cannot be upgraded or have parts replaced beyond memory or the drive(s) Dell is not any better or worse in that regard.

We have just under 12k endpoints (if you can trust ePO ), and with out a doubt the worst laptops we own right now are Lenovo, and have been for several generations. Unfortunately Dell has been over the years the most reliable in both device and support. As much as I personally love the Surface, we have many slippy fingered executives, and man o man our replacement budget is scary, and it has a serious flaw in the dock with running two monitors, MS used a seriously flawed Intel chip for the dock.

Funny we do not has many battery issues any more, but they are user replaceable. I have had the same luck as you in the past personally, my own Surface Pro 3 is the first exception to that less than 2 year and battery fail rule.
