Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

That graphic card isn't very good. How much can you spend?

Good to know. All this time, my last Pc could not run it. Star Trek installed fine, yet crashed at character creation menu. I just hope to be able to play the game at all.

The present-model A6's GPU is a lot weaker than the older one's. Rogue15 has the older one.

There should still be some good deals on laptops with the previous generation of AMD APUs, and you won't see much of a difference in CPU power, if any.

Only 32GB hard drive? Wow...you *must* be trying for budget level... Or did ye mean 320GB good sir?

thats probably why i got it on sale back in may at staples for $510, and walmart had it a month later on clearance for $400. so you could probably find it on amazon.com or somewhere for less than $400 if you are getting it just for mmorpgs like i did, only thing i need to invest in for it is a cooling thing cause swtor heats it up.
