Dell Studio 17 Laptop For Poker

My new Dell Studio 17 laptop arrived the other day and I forgot to blog about it! The reason behind my purchase was preparation for a long hot summer spent under the air conditioner and to give me scope to travel in the future. The other laptops I have are old and can’t handle the rigors of mass-tabling online poker so it was time for an upgrade.

I got a choice of colour and I went with the ‘tangerine orange’. I’ve listed all the specifications below for anyone that is interested.

  • if you don’t mind my asking, how much does a system like that cost these days?

  • What was the cost?

  • Hehe I used Stars Concierge service to pay for it. It cost me just over 100k FPPs or US$1718.

  • Ditto. I have new Dell Laptop and Dell Desktop with 2x24inch monitors. Laptop for travel and for the wife. Desktop for multi-tabling.

    Go Melbourne Storm!
