Talkin' Bout My Console Generation

Why wait for the next-gen console? It's right here.

The Xbox 360 was released in 2005, and the Wii and PlayStation 3 were released in 2006. It's been six years since the last generation of consoles, and we only have rumors and hearsay about next-gen offerings. But guess what? The next generation of gaming platforms was already here -- it was inside you all along. Actually, it was this Alienware Quad-Core i7 Gaming Laptop.

In terms of outright performance, this machine blows those consoles (and almost all PCs) out of the water. With a second-gen Intel i7 processor at its foundation, 8GB of DDR3 RAM (expandable to 32GB), and dual 500GB hybrid drives that act like SSDs, this thing is downright beastly. Throw in an 18.4" display and a top-of-the-line 1.5GB NVIDIA GeForce GXT 560M video card and -- yes, we'll let you go change your drawers.

The old trope that PC gamers have to buy a new rig every couple of years no longer holds -- this thing will be a performance horse for years to come. And unlike consoles, if there comes a time that you need to upgrade to meet the demands of the latest games, you can always upgrade. More RAM? Snap. New video card? Snap. As-of-yet-uninvented-holo-body-suit-add-on? Snap.

The point is that PC gaming is not only relevant again, it's now the premiere way to experience the latest technological achievements in gaming. At least, that's our story until we start selling consoles.
