Hardware Upgrade Coming Soon

Its been a while since I have upgraded or messed around with any of my desktops. I have two which are running pretty good, they do the multitasking job that I need and I can open up about 100 tabs without even causing a hiccup. But the other two are in dire need of upgrades, one of them has ceased to function and it houses my iTunes which is making things very annoying to update playlists. Apple has some very screwed up ways of managing iTunes which makes me really hate them.

I have been thinking about getting a Windows Laptop for a while now and the one that I have been eyeing is the Asus ZenBook but I just heard that they are going for major hardware upgrade this summer so I’m going to wait on that.

Also one of the reasons I want to upgrade my hardware is the release of Diablo III in May, I want a machine that can handle the abuse so I will be building that soon, once I have searched the depths of New Egg for the hardware I have in mind.

  4. @bob -Thanks for the heads up and list of equipment but I have some parts that I cannibalized I don’t want to buy a ready made machine, I want to build mine!

    @aziz – Damn! I hate you! looool! Mashalla amazing machine! Just a question what are you using it for? Dual or Single Screen? Gaming by any chance?

  5. Looking sexy but then again I was talking about the iPad and not the other stuff :P

  6. That’s strange! iTunes never caused me any issues nor it slows my system down!!!! ………… Oh wait! … You are using Windows :-p

    Feel sorry for ya :-)

    Marzouq, yes dual 24″ Samsung monitors and I’m gaming too. CoD, Crysis and even World of Warcraft in raids with a gazillion objects and the maximum video settings are all working smoothly.

    I don’t really need the 24GB RAM but even DDR3 is relatively cheap and looking at the number when it boots up satisfies my inner beast!
