    Once I get the new laptop up and running I'll check with them and see if it's repairable and how much it would cost.

    The current free Epic game is Totally Accurate Battle Simulator. A silly but fun game where you find out who would win, a knight or 200 peasants, 5 vikings or a catapult, etc... :)

    I had assumed it would be really expensive as it is long out of warranty. Shipping alone would probably cost a fortune! :) Though you're right, might be worth checking just in case.

    I ordered the Proteus during the week. Not expecting it until the new year. Though it went into testing yesterday. I tried a local repair shop to see if the Vortex could be fixed and they thought it would be too costly to warrant fixing. It still works, I'll just need to be very careful with...

    Superhot is the current free game on the Epic store. Excellent FPS game with an excellent time mechanic. Almost a puzzle game at times.

    It is an excellent laptop. Starting to struggle with newer games though so it was time for an upgrade. If I can get the hinge fixed I'll donate it to my eldest. :)

    Cheers! I'll see if I can get the hinge repaired. It's still a decent laptop, and it has served me well for over 6 years! :)

    OK. So I think I'm going to go for your Proteus recommendation Oussebon. I had a think about it and looks good. One question. Is there much difference between the 1TB ADATA and PCS SSDs? Would it be worth ordering now (I won't get it until January) or is there a chance of special...

    I just read on PC Gamer that the Epic Games store is going to be giving away 12 games over Christmas, starting from the 19th!

    I'm Same here. I'm building a sizeable library with them yet I've never bought any games from them. :rolleyes:

    The Wolf Among Us is currently free on the Epic store: https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/the-wolf-among-us/home Definitely worth picking up in my opinion. A superb interactive adventure game that got me into reading the Fables series.

    That does look like a good option. I'll have to have a think about it. Thanks! :) I guess I don't need to buy a monitor right away too.

    Hmmm.... external monitor. That's an option. I had thought about a mini PC for a while but thought it would be too cumbersome if it need to be moved. I hadn't thought about a laptop with one though. If I went that route I would probably get a cheapish one initially. However would an RTX...

    I think I'd prefer to stick with the 17" as I've been using one for quite a while now. I think a drop down to 15" would be too much of a change. I use a 15" laptop for work and I find it a bit too small. Also, I don't need much portability as I rarely take the laptop out. What makes the...

    How does this one look? The Defiance has the 2060 in stock ( I don't fancy waiting 2 months for the Optimus stock). If this can see me through the next 5 years I'll be happy. :) Chassis & Display Defiance Series: 17.3" Matte Full HD 144Hz 72% NTSC LED Widescreen (1920x1080) Processor...

    Hmmm... I plugged the same spec into the Defiance and it comes out priced mid-way between the Optimus and the Recoil. I would have assumed it would have been the dearest of the three. It seems very thin compared to the other two.

    Ah, I see. I was thinking laptops were put together the same way as desktops. Just with a lot more difficulty!

    I just went in to have another look at the Optimus spec and it says the RTX 2060 is out of stock until February! :( Though if I try a Recoil with the same spec it doesn't give any out of stock warnings... :rolleyes:
