Hi all. Name's Mike and I recently got my hands on a M17X R2 with a video card issue that I am in the process of making run as a secondary gaming laptop for the wife.

Little about me. 41 years old, I do IT for a living as part of a small business that provides outsource IT to the local businesses in our area. I have been gaming since the early days of Atari and have been building my own gaming rigs at home since I was 19.

My current primary machine is an almost 2 year old Asus ROG G series 18'" machine with i7 quad core, 16 gig ram, and GTX 765M. (Had kids and had to give up my office, custom rigs and 20"+displays)

i'm looking forward to diving into my new laptop and making this bad boy out perform my newer Asus if I can.
