Expo 2013 loaner PCs

Sup.

So like last year, I'll be traveling to Expo without a computer. Well, I'll have my laptop from work, but anyone who's been fortunate to witness my embarrassment of being caught in public with that thing knows that laptop can hardly even run Minecraft. Needless to say, I will not be TF2ing on it.

Will there be any loaner systems at expo? Anyone willing to let me play TF2 and/or the minecraft stuff and/or other games on? I was hoping to have bought a gaming capable laptop by now, but lol my jobs.

    I will not be bringing my desktop via plane this time. That was Archer level #dangerzone and don't want to risk it again, so I'll need a PC to do TF2, LoL ... and that's it? I don't mind not participating, but it would be nice :D

    I will be shipping my PC this year. That worked out really well the two years I did that. I am not apposed to shipping my monitor also but one less box is one less worry if someone has a spare 22"+.

    I'll bring my work rig as a spare:

    Athlon II quad @ 3.4 GHz, Radeon 6670, 20" 1600x1200 LCD. Vid card should be adequate for the scheduled tourney games. I've played Civ5 on it and it's been good (lol "work rig").

    @Primesuspect gave me the Radeon, so it's fitting I bring the rig to help out.

    I'm still vaguely disappointed that the much more clever "elbros" wasn't the obvious choice, there.

    @Gargoyle Sweet, thanks. For the purposes of being organized, let's say that's @Tushon's designated gaming rig.

    Yay!

    It's all in the alliteration, man.

    I will have my old Core2 Due lappy, but about all it can do is run TF2 at low settings and even then the framerate drops into slideshow mode on occasion. While a loaner for the entire time would be awesome, as long as I can get on a decent rig for the TF2 tourny, thats all I need.

    @Bobbydigi, anyone else going to need monitors, keyboards, or mice?

    Also. I have mousepads. I have 7 of these I'll gladly donate if anyone needs them.

    If I have room in the car I will bring my spare rig, Q6600 plus the GTX 480 I won two years ago and a 22".
  • GuppyGuppy Warren, MI Icrontian
    I may use my previous rig this year (it's good enough for Minecraft, TF2, etc.) and let someone use my current rig if it's really needed.
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    @RyanMM, Should I take that as "Monitor covered"? Also a Mousepad can be useful, It would go to a loving home afterwards. :D

    Thanks,

    I am starting to panic, pieces did not fall into place for me to ship my computer yet, going out today would get there next Wednesday but if someone has a spare computer that will run minimum TF2 and Mincraft (Tribes and UT2K would be bonus) that I can use throughout Expo, You will be superhero status.

    @RyanMM The wonderful Sonorous brought a monitor along with the PC he provided for me. No need to bring another for me if you have not already packed up. Could still use a mouse pad though :-) Thanks.
