"For me the consoles have a huge edge over the PC when I need mobility. I'm constantly moving my consoles around."
My $470(after tax) laptop has 8GB of RAM with a 1 GB graphics card(you can use the on-board graphics at same time for a total of 2GB of VRAM). That leaves you with about $1 500 to upgrade the graphics card or to just buy a better laptop to start with. I also have a carrying case that seems like it was made for it.

"...if they'd just come out and said 'We're including ads in the empty slots that show up when you open a new tab, you can disable them if you want to', people might have been annoyed, but it probably wouldn't have been seen as a big deal."
That is how I first heard it and my reaction to it.
What I am not clear on is if my nine most visited sites that are there now are going to be gone or is this only after new installs and cache flushes type of deal?
