Since I am always in my truck, but starting mid June ill be home two days a week I needed something powerful enough while I'm on the road, but also something I could substitute for a desktop while I'm at home.

So I got an Alienware 17 R3

I7-6700HQ Processor
16gb of RAM
GTX 980m
256gb M2 SSD
1TB Mechanical Drive
Killer wireless card

And by the time the 1070s drop ill have the Alienware graphic amplifier in place for the 1070 while I'm gaming at home.

Anyone can say what they will about Alienwares being super overpriced. I think they still look pretty cool

Yep. Ill pay 3-400 extra for that level of sexy. Plus it was either them or razer for the graphic amplifier. So it had to be one of the two. And I always wanted an alienware

I would have gotten one before Dell owned them......   :/

 

Anyway, looks pretty slick though, and will probably run most games better than my primary rig.....   lol :P

Regional. Home 2 days a week. Which is why I want the desktop card for when I'm at home. But ill be gaming anytime with this when I'm on the road. Using my phone as a hotspot.

Gonna be on a dedicated route for Kraft.

8 or 9 days until I'm home and this all begins.

I'm excite

Awesome, so guess that ridiculous training mission across the Midwest was worth the trip?

Yeah it was. I've been training other drivers for the last 3 months while I looked elsewhere for a decent solo driving gig

Gonna take a little pay cut driving solo, compared to training but its worth it for me

Heading home, Thurs-Friday

This last days are grueling. They just won't end and I'm looking so forward to my 10 days off between jobs and being in a drunken stooper

-_-
