Figured i'd share the epicness of this with you guys.
Not sure if it's open to international participants, but you can enter (by the end of the month) to win a Duke Nukem PC.

i already entered twice, so you might want to check it out. thing DOES look pretty badass. 8)

It looks cool, but I don't know what I'd do with it since it's not that much more powerful than 2k

Once again, the designation of "Mac User" comes to entirely define what and who a person is.... lovely. `v'

How dare you! You don't need to be PC user to appreciate a system, even if you use a Macintosh most of the time!

A system is a system, a Macintosh is a PC and a PC is a Macintosh the only true difference is the OS which really just a GUI if you look close enough.

Is it right for me to say "People who are solely PC users could never appreciate a Macintosh"? People may have different preferences but that doesn't take away the idea of appreciating something that isn't their preference 「(゚ペ)

While I object to the PC = Mac argument (though Mac IS a PC in the sense of being an x86, "IBM compatible") I do agree with Kraus for the most part - there are many Mac people who can appreciate a good Windows PC, just like there are many Windows people who can appreciate a good Mac or Linux machine and others who, while Windows users, wouldn't know a good computer if it hit them on the head.

Someday I will build my own computer.  It will be cooled by a re-purposed lawn mower blade.

someday i'll facepalm because of derogatory comments against windows users. that day is today.

*facepalms*

either way this isn't the point of this thread, i just wanted to show you guys a cool computer. when i said that i'd be sad if a mac user got it, i meant that someone who uses only mac might not appriciate a PC as much as if say, they made a Duke Nukem Mac. that's just my opinion, and i am entitled to have it without fear of flaming. let's hope someone here wins it, so that we can have pictures of awesome duke nukem computer.

hail to the king, baby.~
