Yea, I am really happy with it, it has been really reliable and the asthetics are really nice (not as nice as a mac, though). Plus, it is fully compatible with a lot of Apple accessories! Yay!

That is the thing with VAIOs. They have a decent asthetic about them. I can't explain it, but they are nice dark desktops. Well certain models are anyways. The only thing I don't like is that they install a bunch of their software on top of the OS. We all know that Sony isn't known for its software. Other than that, most PC users that I know, want one. (Meanwhile I'm trying to convince Mac)

God almighty do they, but I get rid of it all at first glance. They are all black, but I prefer that over Dell gray or something. I love my screen though, it is a sony HS94P/B which is great for the mini - dual inputs for both computers. This kid is busting my chops for getting a Mac, he is like, You will always have to use a windows PC, you retard. And I am like STFU it is stable, cool, and nice looking to boot!

Picture of what my airsoft gun is going to look like. Of course I have many more add-ons for it coming.

How much did that cost you? And what is powering it. Gas, spring, electric?

That is a sweet looking rifle.. Reminds me of the old days when I served in the Army (101st Airbourne Division)... I had the opportunity to fire quite a variety of weapons (AT-4, M16A2, M4, Saw MG, 50 Cal, and probably forgetting a few)..

I plan on picking up the new Clancy game for my 360, but I just bought Burnout Revenge for the 360, and am totally addicted...

It's an AEG, automatic electric gun. Well you can find this one online for $200-290, but I paid about $160 for the rifle before taxes (friend works at an airsoft store, but couldn't get a better discount). I'm going to modify it when it comes in though. Putting in a new spring, steel bushings, steel gears, remove the fuse, stronger torque gears, new piston head, put in a bigger more powerful battery and change the battery compartment to get it to fit. Basically it will go from stock 275 fps, to around 380 fps or so, plus it will be more durable with better parts. Plus I got a lot of accessories for it. At first I was going to order it from a different store, but my friend told me they were getting the G36s in, so I put in my order.

That new Ghost Recon is something else, I tell ya. I get into the more tactical war games more than anything else. I guess I just get the pleasure of shooting someone in the face online, plus it doesn't hurt to be decent at the game too.
I've gotten to fire a few guns before, quite a few AK47s, some cheap ones (mac10s, etc) and a variety of pistols (my dad has a .50 Desert Eagle and I use it more than him lol). My favorite is long range rifles, even just plain hunting rifles are fun. But what I really want to get my hands on, is a Steyr AUG. I don't know why, I just like the bullpup designs.
